After using this phone.. Has anyone tried looking at a flat phone and see the corners bending backwards? I know they're not but the flex has made my eyes seem like the corner of other phones look like they're bending away from me.

Omg I thought it was just me! For a while, every time I used my Nexus 4 it looked bent to the back until my eyes got used to it. With a case on the Flex, (or at least my case) the curve is less prominent so it helps if you switch to a flat phone every now and then.

I thought yall were crazy but I picked up my sons Nextbook 7 to root it last night and it seemed as if it was curved the opposite way from our curve. WEIRD.

I noticed this with my wife's new phone and tried to explain it. She cared about as much as you'd expect... which is not at all. It is significant though. It really messes with your eyes.

I sold my Nexus 7 since I wasn't using it and just prefer one device. Maybe I'll pick up my wife's HTC One and see.
