LG Promises Bendable Phones Next Year, Rollable Displays in 2017
The flexible and self-healing LG G Flex was an unexpected treat when it launched late last year, but LG is just getting started.

LG Nexus 5 vs. LG G Flex - Mobile Madness
Yesterday’s match-up was not as close as our previous one. The iPhone 5c garnered just shy of 70 percent of the votes and the Nokia X+ pulled in 30 percent.

LG G Flex review: Are Curved Displays Really the Future?
I remember years ago reading an article about how, one day, we'll be able to commute and read our news from a digital piece of paper that can be rolled up and stored in our bags. To me, that appeared to be the future: a time when we could carry our entire lives on this futuristic digital scroll. We would be able to use it to read, watch videos, interact with friends and more, ditching...

When LG unveiled its curved G Flex smartphone it also revealed that the device was covered in a “self healing” protective coating that would remove any scratches to the back panel on its own.
