LG G Flex2 review: This is what the original should have been

 

"They're a gimmick. They're a terrible idea. They're not going anywhere."Naysayers have been doing their thing since the notion of a curved smartphone

Stunning design ; Great gaming and video performance ; Good camera ; Battery charges quickly

Some stock Lollipop features are missing ; LG's custom UI can be sluggish ; Weak front-facing camera

The G Flex2 is LG's latest flexible flagship, and it improves on its predecessor in almost every way that matters. Style? Check. Horsepower? Check. Better screen? You get where we're going here. Still, a dramatic design refinement and an internal...

LG G Flex2 review: A new angle

 

It's been more than a year since we saw the introduction of the original LG G Flex. When LG announced the second generation this January we had already assumed that LG had decided to ditch the entire concept. Was it reports of iPhone 6 Plus bending in...

Curved design build around a curved display, self-healing coating on the back panel ; 5.5" 16M-color 1080p curved P-OLED capacitive touchscreen with Dura Guard Glass (Gorilla Glass 3 enhanced in-house by LG) ; Android OS v5.0.1 Lollipop with Optimus UI...

Rather pricey (sans carrier subsidies) that misses features such as stereo speakers, wireless charging, or an enhanced resistance to liquids or dust ; The 16GB model comes with 2GB of RAM ; Non-removable battery

LG kicked off 2015 with a bang... or rather with a new flex. The LG G Flex2 is the first smartphone to unleash the latest Snapdragon 810 beast-of-a-chipset on the market.

LG G Flex 2 (Sprint)

 

Even after the novelty of the curved display wears off, the LG G Flex 2 is a strong performer that comes at a sizable discount over similarly equipped Android smartphones.

Unique curved display. Fast performance. Strong battery life.

Middling call quality. Heavy Android skin.

Camera and Conclusions Camera performance from the 13-megapixel, rear-facing camera appears unchanged from the G3. The speedy autofocus times and optical stabilization are both net positives, but the overall performance leaves something to be desired....

LG G Flex 2 review

 

The G Flex smartphone line is LG's design and engineering showcase. The Korean chaebol has developed an unmatched portfolio of curved batteries and displays, self-healing covers, and laser-guided...

Call quality and reception are impeccable ; Reliably good camera ; Rectifies most of the flaws of the original G Flex

Laggy software undermines Android 5’s strengths ; The curve distorts geometric shapes on the screen ; Doesn’t make the most of its top-notch spec sheet

LG G Flex 2 review: A powerful curved smartphone that might just convert you

 

If you're ready for something a little different, LG's second-generation curved smartphone is worth a try.

It's curved. It's cool. And it just feels good in your hand ; A high-performance processor with plenty of oomph

The single speaker on the back will kill your love for blasting music from your phone ; LG's version of Lollipop feels a little rushed

This phone has everything its flagship counterparts have, except it's curved. Don't hesitate if you feel like giving it a try.

LG G Flex 2 ( volcano red)

 

Such a task doesn't come easy for LG. Despite steadily pumping out premium phones like the G Pro 2 , Google Nexus 5 and G3 , LG has had difficulty carving a place for itself in the Android market . Its devices lacked the sophisticate aesthetic of the...

The LG G Flex 2 sports a uniquely immersive and comfortable arched design, a sharp 1080p display, the latest Snapdragon 810 processor and a scratch-resistant coating.

The device's camera takes muted photos, its battery capacity is smaller than its predecessor, and performance can be slow at times.

No longer just a daring experiment, the G Flex 2 finally has the killer screen and top-of-the-line processor that its bold design deserves.

LG G Flex 2 review

 

With its new G Flex 2, LG went back to its curved drawing board, corrected all the missteps of the original G Flex -- namely its unwieldy size and unimpressive 720p display -- and delivered a marquee-worthy device. Equipping it with a crystal-clear...

LG G Flex 2

 

The LG G Flex 2 could be a striking, lower-cost alternative to the Samsung Galaxy S6 if its processor performs as promised.

Curved design makes for great screen visibility. Sharp camera. Self-healing back really works. Stands out in a crowd.

No way to tell call quality or network performance with a non-U.S. model.

Conclusions The G Flex 2 is an interesting high-midrange phone with a striking design. Thanks to its new Snapdragon 810 processor, its performance might measure up to the Galaxy S6 (although we'll have to see). Web browsing, especially, looks really...

LG G Flex 2 Smartphone Review

 

Bananaphone. LG presents the second edition of its curved, high-end smartphone, LG G Flex 2, with improvements: Primarily the higher resolution screen is to silence the critics. We closely examined the slightly smaller phablet in the test.

Ergonomic casing, Flexible, unbreakable chassis, Removable back-cover..., ...with self-healing effect, Infinitely high contrast, Decent camera equipment, Good software configuration, Low temperatures, No power consumption when turned off

Rear-sided controls, Dark screen, Limited cell coverage, Awkward inputting of umlauts, Relatively expensive

Buyers have to pony up quite a bit for the uniqueness of LG's G Flex 2. This was already one of the biggest criticisms of the precursor, and our present review sample clearly lags behind other high-end devices in some points while the price is very...

LG G Flex 2 Review – Killer Curves

 

First you have to prove you're not a gimmick. Then it's just a matter of proving you're better. LG turned heads with the G Flex last year, an Android smartphone with a banana-like bend to it, only to be stung with criticism that its big idea was...

When you’re using a non-localized device, there are always provisos to be taken into consideration. In the case of the LG G Flex 2, we still have several outstanding questions: how the combination of Snapdragon 810 and US-spec software will play...
