    So I saw this over at the Verge: Samsung makes the case for 'bended' phones in latest patent application | The Verge

    Basically the screen bends around the side and puts some of the menu/bookmark/notification/etc. on the side to keep the front cleaner. I personally really like the idea. What do you think?

    I think it might be awkward to have to turn my phone in different directions to see stuff on the sides. I guess I'll have to see a finished product to know if it would be useful or awkward.

    It appears to be at an angle that is still easily seen without having to do that much.

    Your assuming the rest of the phone is designed in a way that the screen on the angled side is easily hit. Try to look at the general uses right now. Obviously there isnt an actually phone designed yet.

    I had seen a mockup iPhone 6 somewhere with zooming and other gestures on side displays :D

    How would one use a case on that type of device? If the sides are exposed the protection of something like an Otterbox wouldn't be possible.

    Valid question but I think it misses the point of the patent. This isnt to show a final design of an actual phone but a possible new element on a future phone.

    They will patient the cheeseburger if possible. The only positive for doing so is suing profitable companies (Microsoft -> Android oems) for royalties or blocking (apple -> Samsung/whoever) sales of services they cannot complete with.


    The patent system is still broken.

    What you said has zero to do with the topic. Topic isnt about the patent system in general.
