I'll have to see these curved phones before I can judge them. Curved from left to right seems better for a pocket because it should conform to your leg curve. Not sure how a curve from top to bottom would fit there but it would do better against the cheek. Either way, I'd like to see them in person before I decide whether it would work for me.

A lot of money and hype about curved phones, but I think it is a novelty and will fade away as sales drop off..

I wonder how it will do in the pocket....If you put the screen facing upwards, its gonna feel and look weird, down wards, its gonna be un comfy and if you fall on that leg, you're gonna have a bad time...

Looks pretty cool actually! It would fit on your face better...that's the only advantage I see. It's funny, we're trying to copy the curved phone shapes of centuries-old house phones hahaha. But other than that, can't see much advantage to curved phones. Save the curves for watches and, someday, transparent LCD displays (ie eye glass lenses, HUDs, windshields, etc.

I have used a Nexus S before, it had the best fit while in use. The idea is that it follows the curvature of your cheek and it works exactly like that.

The Curve makes it easier to break the Phone while in your Pocket. but hey, at least the Screen will flex and not break... too bad everything else won't.

Strange. The tech is neat, but I fail to see it's utility in a phone. Phones keep getting bigger and more ungainly and everyone LOVES it. So this is sure to be a win though everyone will be hard pressed to explain exactly why. We are converging towards the lauded Zach Morris status symbol phone...

With its new curves in your pocket it will also serve as a package enhancer. ==D

Is that a phone in your pocket or are you just happy to see me?

I like the idea, but implemented more of how samsung showed off their ideal usage of curved phones.

Dumb.

Would be annoying in your pocket. Would be annoying in 2 hands. Would be annoying when you put it down and try to use it on a flat surface.

It would potentially be better for phone calls. But the speakers already seem to work just fine without the curve, they dont need to be next to your face anymore. Phone calls are one of the least important features of a phone these days tho. Or i should really say least important feature of a pocket computer.

Usual marketing scam calling these phones "FLEX". I bet they don't flex at all. They are just curved and besides making it harder to carry in your pocket I don't get it.

I've read several comments about how pocketable this phone will be. Not everyone wants to put their phone in their pocket so I don't think that needs to be a design consideration. It seems like a something the size of an iPhone or HTC One Mini would better suit those that want to carry their phone in their pockets.

Again, poor design means it can't be used on a flat surface. You will always need to hold it in your hand or it will rock....While it looks cool, just can't see a need for it. Will be style rather than functionality i guess, which is fair enough if that's what people want.

I totally agree with you. The phone almost stays in our pant pockets most of the time and a vertical curve is useless there. If it sits comfortably on the cheeks, then it would pick up oil from the face. Just a no go for me and many others with oily face!
