LG G Flex Self Healing Scratch Test Demo on Video

When LG announced its flexible smarthone, the G Flex, last month, the fact that this phone could bend wasn't actually the most intriguing feature. We'd been hearing about the G Flex for a couple of months, so we were expecting a flexible and/or curved phone. What we weren't expecting was the self-healing back LG put on the rear-side of the phone.

Designed to protect the phone against the scrapes and scratches inflicted by everyday wear and tear, this is a feature that has to be seen to be believed. The self-healing feature showed up on an LG video earlier this month. Now, a video showing a more intense test of this feature is doing the rounds and this one didn't come from LG.

Check Marques Brownlee’s video below, which shows off the self-healing ability of the G Flex, as well as the phone’s flexibility. Interestingly, Brownlee found that you can actually accelerate the healing process by rubbing the phone to warm it up. Pretty neat!

    That's an awesome feature. But no card slot, no deal. Oh well.

    But it's the screen the matters, is it not? Who cares if you get scratches and scuffs on the backplate. I'm sure you could just buy a replacement if you really wanted to. It's the screen that matters.

    Baby steps. Gorilla Glass hasn't had this issue so bad from what I hear. And the backing will only work with light scratches, so cracking the back is still going to set you to SCREWED. Not to mention there are materialists who will love this feature.
