The LG G Flex is possibly one of the most innovative smartphones to break cover in 2013 from a major manufacturer. However, the smartphone received a minor setback recently when some users claimed that it has a faulty display. LG has now come to the defense of the smartphone, claiming that the issue is normal and much along expected lines, instead of promising a fix. Since this issue is hardware based, LG has no other option but to acknowledge the issue as it cannot be fixed with a software patch. But instead of recalling faulty units, the Korean manufacturer has asked users to live with this display issue.
In a statement issued to The Korea Times, LG said – “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, the issue has no relation to the performance and quality of the device.” While it is unfair to rule out foul play from the owners of the device, this is not an isolated incident, so it is clear that the issue is widespread.
For those unaware of the issue, the display on the smartphone gets minor bumps as displayed in the image above which can be quite an annoyance for the users, especially considering the premium price they’ve paid for the handset. This could prove to be a minor setback for LG as it plans to launch the smartphone in the U.S. through major carriers.
