Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... Is it just me, or won't that LG phone be an uncomfortable object to have in your pocket, especially when you're sitting down? And potentially socially embarrassing when you're stood up (for blokes)?

Re: Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... It's not just you. I don't see that design being helpful at all, just annoying. Maybe it feels better when you're talking on the phone (who does that?), but it'd also make the screen a lot dirtier and make loud talkers even louder.

Re: Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... It's getting harder to fit your 5 inches phone in your pocket nowadays in all cases. The only case for that phone is it helps you in your one-hand operations without compromising on the screen size.

Re: Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... I'm not sure I see how it would help in one-handed operations? It's still a big screen. Wouldn't that make it more ackward?

Re: Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... By bending, fingers can reach the other side of the phone when the phone is held in one hand.

I don't like that design personally, it doesn't add much.

I believe the evolution should go first into phone blocks, then foldable phones, then holograms and later into a technology that doesn't get into your way, but rather becomes part of your everyday experience, something like the Google glass with brainlet control (with some years of evolution) :)

Re: Is that a bendyphone in your pocket... I like the vision, Kruz! I've heard talk about all those form factors you mentioned, so we'll see what comes of the R&D.

5G What exactly is going to define 5G as such? Our handy "G" evolution diagram may need to be expanded: http://www.lightreading.com/document.asp?doc_id=705396
