Display Defects Reported On LG G Flex Smartphones


Reports from S. Korea indicate that small defects may appear on the curved screens of LG Electronics' G Flex smartphones, although the company acknowledged and tried to downplay the issue.

According to the Korea Times, the possible defects on the smartphone's curved screen are small bumps on its surface.



LG said that it does not affect the function and quality of the phone but experts from the Korea Display Industry Association argue that the company should have addressed the issue before it introduced it.

"Because key components inside the G Flex such as the glass cover, OLED display, battery and frame are elastic, excessive or frequent force that flattens the device may produce bumps," LG Electronics said in a statement. It also reassured consumers, saying that "the issue has no relation to the performance and quality of the device."

LG added the bumps would disappear over time and immediately disappears after pressing the problematic spot on the glass cover. To prevent such bumps, the company asked users not to use frequent, excessive force on the device or the screen, adding that the G Flex screen was made elastic on purpose in order to protect the device from damage from sudden impacts.

LG G Flex was released in Korea in November last year and the 6-inch curved-screen smartphone is now available in major Asian markets including Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore and South Korea.

AT&T, Sprint Nextel and T-Mobile have also agreed to sell G Flex in the United States starting in the first quarter of this year.
