Your smartphone can move mountains and literally help you do anything. Be it work related or just a simple past time to help you unwind after a long day, your phone will provide both your emails and entertainment with ease. So why would anyone think of making a bendable smartphone when a rigid one does everything you need and want? Well, according to LG, the bendable design makes the handset more durable, as it allows the phone to physically flex and bend when pressure is applied to it.LG also claims that the phone’s shape makes calling someone easier, as the curve causes the receiver to bend closer to your mouth.
LG has created two versions of the bendable smartphone.The original being Flex, and the second version the Flex 2 . Flex 2 comes with a self-healing back panel that uses a special polymer that allows the phone to “heal” small scratches. Don’t expect this phone to totally recover from deep gouges, though; think minor nicks and cuts, like from the keys in your pocket.
The era of bendable smartphones began with Samsung’s Youm;the world’s first flexible and bendable smartphone. This groundbreaking technology uses OLED’s that are flexible and almost indestructible. The phone features a Windows operating system and is the first of its kind. This doesn’t come as a surprise since Samsung controls 90% of the market’s OLED supply. The Youm is the first in a new generation of smartphones that will be more discreet and available in more forms than the traditional candy-bar layout.
Next time you think of buying a new phone, don't think "straight" think bendable and get yourself a flexible phone.
