How-To: Add LG G6-Style Curved Corners to Your Android Device’s Screen
Back at MWC 2017, LG finally announced the G6 with a Snapdragon 821 chip, 4GB of RAM, and a big, beautiful 18:9 Quad HD+ HDR-enabled 5.7-inch display on a body that has a footprint smaller than that of an iPhone 7 Plus which features a 5.5-inch display. This is done with much manufacturing and design techniques, while curved corners rather sharp ones are used so a) the display fits in the body and b) it helps to protect the screen from cracking on accidental drops.
This isn’t exactly a perk you get, but those curved corners look really good. Like, really good, especially if you have black bezels on the front of your phone. So how could one get this aesthetic on their own Android smartphone? By downloading a free app called Cornerfly.
It’s quite simple: download the app, open it up, and flick one switch (along the way, you’ll have to allow some permissions for everything to work properly, but I’m assuming you knew this would come). After that, you’ll be able to enjoy curved corners on your screen much like future users of the LG G6 and likely users of the Samsung Galaxy S8. You can choose which apps get the beautification and even which corners you want curves to be present in. The app’s pretty versatile, with a paid version offering the ability to adjust the size of the curves. Therefore, you’ll be able to suit your needs to a T with this app in case you’re not satisfied with the default settings.
Here’s some screenshots I took of my screen (mind you it’s only 720p and still looks fantastic).
You can download Cornerfly from the Play Store for free from your Android device (phone or tablet, by the way) and get those crisp and clean curves around your corners. Feel free to take some screenshots and share them with @MBEDDEDMaximum!
