LG G Flex 2 poll
Many are the traits making the LG G Flex 2 an outstanding smartphone. Without a doubt, the handset's shape is the most striking among them as the vast majority of smartphones on the market conform to the same form factor; they're all, you know, pretty flat. 

The LG G Flex 2, in contrast, flaunts a curved profile topped with a flexible, P-OLED display. As a result, the handset is pleasant to hold and use, all while being less prone to damage resulting from an accidental drop. And the microphone is brought closer to the user's mouth during calls, which should improve the quality of phone conversations. 

Long story short, the LG G Flex 2 is quite the attention grabber. But it is not the first curved smartphone – we had the Samsung Galaxy Round and the LG G Flex before it – and it likely won't be the last. This brings us to tonight's $64,000 dollar question which asks whether there really is a market for curved smartphones. A market that's big enough to justify tech companies' efforts in developing such unorthodox handsets, that is. Would you, guys, buy a smartphone like the LG G Flex 2, or do you not see much benefit in its rounded shape? Feel free to vote in our poll below and let us know!

Shape doesn't matter that much to me. If it's a great phone overall, I'd get it.
