CES 2015 has come and gone, but the splash made by the gadgets shown off at the show will resonate for quite some time. And without a doubt, it was the LG G Flex 2 that produced the biggest bang, at least in the smartphone department. It is remarkable not only with its potent hardware muscle, but also with its unique design and the perks that come along with it. And we're betting that the handset is now on the wishlists of many who have familiarized themselves with it via our G Flex 2 hands-on.
However, there seems to be a great number of folks who don't really care if their smartphone is flat or curved. At least that's the conclusion we arrived at after analyzing the results from our recent poll, where we asked our readers whether they'd pick a curved smartphone over a flat one. About 39% of all who voted would buy a great smartphone regardless of its shape. The percentage of people who don't see enough benefit of curved smartphones over flat ones is also pretty significant – about 31.6%. And last but not least, there's the minority of folks who are throwing money at their screens as we write these lines. About 29.5% of the respondents are eager to buy a curved smartphone like the LG G Flex 2.
Surprised by these results? Which group do you belong to? Let us know in the comments below!
Would you buy a curved smartphone like the LG G Flex2?
Yes, shut up and take my money!
No, I don't see why I should pick a curved phone over a flat one.
Shape doesn't matter that much to me. If it's a great phone overall, I'd get it.

Won't be interesting till Apple makes one. Similar to how the iPhone was the perfect size till the 6plus came along.

Information about curved screens have been out since over a year ago. Learn to Google it if you have no imagination to understand it by yourself.

Only thing bothers me is how it will lay in pocket,I think how galaxy round was designed is more preferable.i have used the previous version, it's intriguing to use especially hope our thumbs are created.

Everyone keeps saying why the curved smartphone. The reason I would is because you wouldn't have to worry about the LCD display getting cracked if the phone is dropped or bent. As long as the glass holds up you are good to go.

fad noun an intense and widely shared enthusiasm for something, especially one that is short-lived and without basis in the object's qualities; a craze.

I don't know if this is a fad, maybe the enthusiasm about it, but the curved design is not new (I'm still using my galaxy nexus which was curved and came out in 2011, though not as drastic as this LG flex) and there are some practical reasons for using a curved design like this. I consider the edge design more of a fad at this point, though once again it's cool for looks and there are some practical uses for the extra screen realestate there... but to me for that there are more negatives than positives.
