LG G Flex curved smart phone bends but doesn’t break

LG G Flex curved smart phone bends but doesn’t break
News from ConsumerReports.org:

Not many electronic devices make a claim for their physical flexibility. After all, smart phones, TVs, computers, and tablets are made from rigid plastic and glass, which are more likely to snap or shatter than bend forgivingly. Then along came LG, touting its G Flex as “the world’s first curved, flexible smart phone,” with this important caveat: “The flexibility of this product is limited. This phone may be bent flat up to 180 degrees for a limited period of time only. Do not bend inward or twist.” (See the screen grab from the LG site below.)

Why, we wondered, would anyone need a bendable phone?

The answer is pretty straightforward. It turns out that flexibility may help with durability. The arc of the G Flex acts like a leaf spring, absorbing energy when pressure is applied to the phone, such as when you lean or sit on the phone when it’s lying on a table. LG was initially pretty vague about just how flexible the G Flex is, but when we pressed company representatives for data, we were told that it had bee…………… continues on ConsumerReports.org

LG G3 leaks again with biometric sensor tipped

The upcoming LG G3 specs sheet has leaked again, with latest reports suggesting the future flagship phone will feature its own integrated fingerprint scanner.

Seemingly set to follow in the footsteps of the rival iPhone 5S and Samsung Galaxy S5, the latest LG G3 leaks have seen the phone’s inbuilt biometric sensor tipped for inclusion alongside an improved camera and Full HD display.

Surfacing courtesy of a claimed user agent profile from the currently unconfirmed phone, the LG G3 leaks have offered an insight into both the phone’s hardware and software packages.

With the phone shown to pack pre-installed PayPal, McAfee Mobile Security and LG Account software, it has been claimed that an integrated fingerprint scanner could be on the cards. However, LG has yet to shed any official light on the claims and as such we must stress these reports be taken with a pinch of salt.

On a hardware front, the LG G3 will reportedly play host to a new 16-megapixel rear-mounted cam…………… continues on TrustedReviews

The LG Flex bends under pressure—until it doesn’t

The LG Flex bends under pressure—until it doesn’t
News from Fox News:

The new LG G Flex is billed as the first flexible, curved smart phone. The flexibility is supposed to help it survive tight pockets and accidental drops—a good thing, because the phone’s gargantuan dimensions (6.3 inches × 3.21 × 0.34) make it harder to stash and more awkward to handle than most models. And the curved shape is intended to nestle in the palm of your hand and enhance voice quality by bringing the phone closer to your mouth and ear.

I’ve spent a few days with AT&T and Sprint press samples of the phone and found that the G Flex was less rigid than typical phones—but not what I’d call flexible. On both phones, the seam between the phone’s case and front panel split open under pressure (see photo below). The parts snapped together easily, though the G Flex isn’t designed to open.

LG also claims the G Flex’s 13-megapixel camera has an improved image sensor with larger pixels for “unsurpassed” pictures and videos. Our engineers are checking those claims in the lab, and we’ll post their findings soon. In the meantime, here are my impressions of this unique and interesting smart phone.

Pros

The screen is dazzling. LG executives have implied that the wide, curved aspect of the G Flex’s 6-inch flexible plastic organic light emitting diode (POLED) panel provides an immersive ef…………… continues on Fox News
