Watch LG’s new phone magically heal itself and bend
’m an iPhone lover. But this phone is a step in the right direction for LG. They’ve officially got my interest. The only thing I don’t like is it’s name. And the operating system. Try saying LG G Flex three times in a row.
“When LG announced its curved smartphone, the G Flex, it boasted that the handset was coated with a “self-healing” material and even compared it to Wolverine from X-Men. LG later released a promotional video showing off the tech in action, but it’s only now that someone has put the company’s claims to the test. In YouTube personality / video producer Marques Brownlee’s hands-on with the device, he checks out the self-healing coating with a number of tests.
First up is a set of keys, which Brownlee creates some light scratches with. As you’ll see in the video, the LG G Flex essentially “heals” the scratches made. It doesn’t completely remove them, but apparently makes the marks almost invisible to the naked eye. He then carves out a deeper scratch using a knife, which “half heals,” appearing far less visible than it would on a regular phone.”
This is a huge step in the right direction in terms of innovation for LG. Recently combatting a decline in the TV industry that they once dominated, LG’s decision to concentrate on unique products like this phone is likely to revive the company’s brand and value.Tags: Android, LG, Smartphone
