As we come to know about the awesome features, here's one I'd like to highlight:

SELF-Healing Properties:
It's self-healing plastic back cover will “heal” any minor scratches, which is great for OCD folks who want to keep their phones new and shiny over time but would rather not use a skin or a case.
The plastic casing on the back is a high gloss plastic finish, similar to what rival Samsung had employed on the flagship Galaxy S4, which means that scratches and scuffs will show up quite visibly. Fortunately, with the G Flex, when keys were used to scratch the phone, the back did recover, though not 100 percent. Still, scratches became less visible and the healing time could be accelerated under warmer conditions.

All in all, even if the display is fixed, which means a user cant fold it or shape it how they would want to, flexible displays, like the one LG is using on the G Flex, still offer a lot of benefits to the consumer. The phone is durable and will withstand drops and dings better than a glass screen.
