LG G Flex 2 upgrades the curved phone, but it’s on the slow side – Mashable

LG G Flex 2 upgrades the curved phone, but it’s on the slow side – Mashable
News from LG G Flex 2 upgrades the curved phone, but it’s on the slow side – Mashable:

What’s This?

It looks like curved phones are here to stay. The first curved phones debuted in 2013, a product of flexible displays and the desperation of smartphone manufacturers to differentiate. The LG G Flex was among them.

It was also a gigantic underpowered beast of a phone, and although its curved screen could turn heads, it couldn’t turn a so-so device into a good one. The curve arguably provided some advantages, but it was hard to see them through the clumsy overall experience.

Smartphones will look the same for years, says LG
News from TechRadar:

LG may have bent over backwards to bring the world flexible smartphones, but when it comes to further innovation on current form factors, the Korean manufacturer shrugs off any notion that something cool is on the immediate horizon.

TrustedReviews today published curious comments from an LG executive that shed light on why new handsets like the LG G Flex 2 might be about as cool as smartphones get for the time being.

LG Director of Corporate Communications Ken Hong summed up the dilemma by proclaiming, “I don’t think we can do much with form factor beyond this at this moment,” adding “the design of phones is restricted by the technology of our component suppliers.”

In fact, even a device like the G Flex 2 is ultimately hindered by how fast suppliers can…………… continues on TechRadar

Ready for the LG G3? Report Says It’s Coming in May

Ready for the LG G3? Report Says It’s Coming in May
News from Droid Life:

After a decent year for LG, but one that still saw Samsung dominate headlines and sales charts with its line of Galaxy phones, the company may be moving towards a May release of its next flagship, potentially called the G3. According to a report from Korean media, the new May release time frame will be done specifically to put it close to Samsung’s April launch of the Galaxy S5. 

As you may recall, the G2 was only released in late September as LG’s newest flagship, a device we are actually quite fond of here at DL. With its solid camera, amazing display, incredible battery life, and unmatched performance, one could argue that it’s as good as any other phone on the market. Be sure to read our G2 review if you haven’t already…………… continues on Droid Life

LG G Flex screen defect leads to bumpy displays
News from Phandroid.com:

LG’s G Flex smartphone uses a forward-thinking flexible display, but is the technology still a bit ahead of its time? A new report from The Korea Times explores what seems to be a common screen defect associated with the smartphone: small bumps forming on the display. [Watch our LG G Flex hands-on]

The problem typically manifests as two bumps on the display, according to a Korean mobile retailer who has seen the issue affect nearly every G Flex to come through his shop. The bumps should disappear over time, according to LG. The company, acknowledging the issue, suggests that massaging the lumps out of the display is typically effective.

The formation of defects is directly related to the G Flex’s flexible display technology. LG says the bumps are a result of excessive force and stresses on the device and warns that applying such pressure is not recommended. LG sees the phone’s flexibility as a way to make the device more durable, not as a nifty party trick (at least not at this stage). A spokesperson for the Korea Display Industry Association claims LG was well aware of issues related to their curved OLED display, and while hesitant to do so decided to…………… continues on Phandroid.com

LG Display’s new five-inch 1080p smartphone display: it’s real, and we’ve got …
News from Engadget:

We stopped by the The Society for Information Display’s (SID) 2012 convention in not-so-sunny Boston, Massachusetts to feast our eyes upon LG Display’s latest creation: a five-inch display panel with Retina-smashing specs. We’re talking about a screen that sports a 1920 x 1080 full HD (FHD) resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 440ppi density — not to mention the Advanced High Performance In-Plane Switching (AH-IPS) technology. The Life’s Good arm states that the window, which has not yet been paired with a smartphone, will provide “Full HDTV quality” on a phone for the first time. Seeing is believing, though, so have a look at our gallery then saunter past the break to read what the company’s VP of IT and Mobile Development had to say about the future of screens.

As we noted above, LG Display was kind enough to provide us face-time with Dr. Byeong-Koo Kim, its VP of IT and Mobile Development. Although our time was short, we tried to gather as much information as we could from Dr. Kim. Here are some of the takeaways:
