LG G Flex Wins iF Design Award 2014


The LG G Flex was recognized with a Gold Award at the iF Design Awards 2014.  The smartphone was commended by iF judges for implementing a new approach to ergonomics with its back controls and its curved display.

The curved design of the phone was made possible with the use of a POLED (plastic OLED) display. While the back controls allowed the smartphone to have thinner bezels, making it look more svelte and stylish. The back also features a “self healing material” that removes minor scratches over a period of time.

What do you guys think of the LG G Flex? Does it deserve an award for design innovation? In my opinion, the phone looks sexy. The only down side for me is the price.

The iF Design Awards is an annual awards ceremony by the iF International Forum Design for products that demonstrate excellence in innovation in the field of design. This year’s competition attracted more than 4,600 entries.
