Design and Build
In terms of design this phone is revolutionary as it does not like the standard premium android phones which you might have seen earlier. It has a great curved plastic OLED display which makes it look unique and and feels really nice in hands and also gives a better grip. The build is really good as we did a stress test of this phone by bending the phone with extra pressure and forced the curved display to go flat in a table but still after this test the device display was working well without any issues and there was no lose points on the display edges on the phone.
Camera and Internal Storage
It has 13 MP camera at the back with auto focus but does not have OIS unlike LG G2, but the photo quality in some low light photos we took at the launch event were good in terms of details and pretty ok in terms of colors as well. One more thing to note both the front and rear camera on this device can record 1080p video. The internal storage on the device is 32Gb or 16Gb on former you will get around 24 Gb approx. and on later you will get around 12Gb approx. but you do not have the
OS and Battery
The OS UI is similar to one we have seen on LG G2 or any other LG Optimus series phone but does have some new features like dual window, cinematic mode for watching videos. The battery of the device is really huge at 3500 mAh rating and it seems to be the right in terms of capacity for a 6 inch display device like this and just like the curved phone, the battery is also curved inside this phone.

Initial Conclusion and Overview
This device seemed to be quite unique in terms of design statement, seems to have one of the best viewing angles with great curved display, form factor wise it feels nice and self healing back add more to its great features to make it stand out of smartphone crowd, it feels thinner and much lighter even with big display as well as compared to other similar hardware phones. We would like to give this device a thumbs up, lets see how does this device perform in Indian market because it might be very highly priced at Rs. 60,000 approx. due to dollar VS Rupee factor.
