Watch This: The LG G Flex Takes a Knife to the Back and 'Heals', Then Gets Flexed

Curved phones are coming back, but LG's G Flex takes it one step further: the company claims the Android smartphone is coated with a 'self-healing' material which can heal from scratches.

Marques Brownlee got his hands on a G Flex and put LG's claims to the test. In a YouTube video he first scratched the G Flex with his keys and then really goes for it with a knife. The G Flex actually 'heals' the scratches made but doesn't completely eliminate them. One cool (or rather, hot) hack he found was that the warmer the phone, the faster the scratches heal.

Watch his video all the way to the end, where he actually flexes the G Flex, and it keeps working. This is one bendy phone that keeps on bending:

And here's LG's own video showing off the self-healing factor in action:
