Since the phone is curved, loud-speaker present on the back doesn’t touch the ground so the sound would be much crisper than other smartphones, says LG. The back cover has self-healing technology since it is coated with a special material so that scratches can be removed within minutes. The power button and the volume keys are present on the back and has high-end sound quality (24bit, 192kHz), similar to the LG G2.
