The LG G Flex is a phone unlike any phone you’ve ever seen. It’s a powerful phone, to be sure: it’s got a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB of RAM and a 13-megapixel camera all tucked inside a gigantic 6” 720p screen. That screen is what separates it from just about every other phone on the market, but not for its size or resolution – rather, the screen curves on a different axis and is, at least according to LG, the “world’s first ‘real’ curved smartphone.”

The G Flex fits better to your face when you make phone calls, it offers a more immersive video experience, and even features something called the “swing lock screen” feature, which moves the wallpaper based on how you tilt your phone and features different unlocking effects when you touch different parts of the screen. The curved screen also does an awesome job controlling the glare. The G Flex also features a Wolverine-like “self-healing” feature, which cures the phone of scratches within minutes through a special protective film. The phone has an OLED screen and is incredibly battery-efficient; the battery lasts forever.

I got my hands on one of the only G Flex phones in the world right now, and it’s truly awesome. Check out the video below to take a closer look at this great new phone.
