Other manufacturers

Samsung announced the Korea-only Samsung Galaxy Round smartphone with a curved display in October, and arch-rivals LG also announced the curved LG G Flex which has a different design philosophy. Built by LG for Google, the Google Nexus 5 takes many of the features of the LG G2 and combines it with Android 4.4. HTC supersized the popular One with the attractive HTC One Max.
