The LG G Flex was a game changer in the smartphone arena with its flexible display last year ,a very interesting feature which outclasses other plain curved display.But it seems that with all the flexing comes a price. A price that will probably anger consumers, and LG acknowledges it as well.
Basically, the whole device has the ability to flex under pressure, lets say its in your back pocket and you sit on it.It should survive that quite easily. Apparently excessive flexing leads to bumps forming on the surface of the screen. If i saw a bump on my screen i would probably fly into a raging panic, considering the high cost of the device, but LG assures users that the bumps go away with time.
LG issued a statement on the matter stating:
“Because key components inside the G Flex such as the glass cover, OLED display, battery and frame are elastic, excessive or frequent force that flattens the device may produce bumps,” LG reassures consumers, saying “the issue has no relation to the performance and quality of the device.”
“Please don’t try to use frequent, excessive force on the device or the screen. The reason we’ve made the G Flex screen elastic is to protect the device from damage from sudden impacts such as being sat on or laid down on.”
So LG seems to have expected this, because they aren’t really treating this as a huge crisis issue (probably isnt,or is it?), however if you dont flex it too much, it shouldnt happen to you.What do you think about this? Will you still buy the LG G Flex?
