    When I was this first on Facebook/TOI , my reaction was "Why will someone buy a curved display" ?
    I mean isn't it gonna look absurd ?

    When I first though of a curved display...I thought of the display being curved/wraped around the edges...like a seamless display with touch replacing the right now popular hardware rocker and lock buttons! Not a convex or concave display...I mean does that make sense?

    ^^ is there a limit to the extent one can bend it, i mean is it a new way of flaunting, i mean meeting in a park with friends and then everyone just starts taking their mobile phones and bending-bending...and then someone's just breaks apart and others woo...

    WHAT THE HELL IS WRONG WITH SAMSUNG MAN!! a curved phone? next is what? a phone that can be tied as knot?

    Acoustical advantage - sides block external noise and your voice is loud and clear while speaking

    All photos are panoramas by default.

    Crazy driver smashed your rear view mirror? Just fix this phone in as an emergency replacement

    The device resembles the Galaxy S3 and S4, but it has slight dip in the middle that causes the phone to curve along a vertical axis. The phone's body itself is rigid, so it doesn't actually flex or bend -- but rather has a stationary curve that is said to fit the contours of a person's face.
