    We are looking at curved edges with high price escalation. Are these curved edges really helpful /functionally good?

    If you actually look at how much of your hand is touching the phone when you are holding it...I don't think curves make much difference

    I dont like S6 curve edges, and actually it makes it much more difficult to hold the phone, with no real use (at least for me).

    I think curves are not explicitly helpful, it kinda resembles some comfortable glidings to the side.

    But the curves also have much influences in overall handling of the phone (also costs and accessories might be more exclusive and expensive) .

    Esthetically its very beautiful (my opinion) but some say the reflections and side deformities arent really comfortable and somewhat disturbing while watching a video.
    So whatever floats your boat.
    I liked that in the s6edge btw.

    its not about having a curved edge phone. think of it as a first step to the evolution of how we see displays. the aim will be to drive towards a flexible display to eventually a retractable one or even holograms..... to sum it up.... i aint payin for that shit at a price that they want...

    for driving, its essential, if you have a stiff body phone this size, to sit in a car with jeans its a problem. rounded edges, the phone seems to find its own place in your pocket.
    Now, whether or not the OP2 is going to be better than an MX5 or LeTV..? This time I hope so.
