LG G Flex review: Interesting design, shame about the price

 

There's more to this phablet than a curved chassis, although its moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing. On the plus side, battery life is good and LG's Android tweaks are largely successful. Overall though, the G...

Innovative curved design ; Good battery life ; USB OTG support ; Some useful software tweaks

Very expensive ; Moderate screen resolution ; No MicroSD slot for storage expansion ; Curved shape could hinder portability

LG may have hit the headlines with the G Flex's curved shape, but there's more to this phablet than a curved chassis. The moderate screen resolution and lack of storage expansion are disappointing, but the way LG is working on enhancing Android shows...

LG G Flex (AT&T)

 

Expansive curved display. Top-of-the-line performance. Sharp 13-megapixel camera. Excellent split screen and floating window multitasking

Awkward rear-mounted buttons. Display is not full HD. Two iterations behind the latest Android version

The LG G Flex shows off the potential of curved display technology, but it's the fast performance and top-notch multitasking prowess that make this loaded phablet more than just a tech demo.

AT&T LG G Flex review: Interesting display tech and excellent battery life

 

LG launched their curved display phablet, but the premium price isn't justifiable given the low display resolution, mediocre camera performance, and odd button placement.

Reasonable price ($299) ; Full Windows 8.1 ; Microsoft Office included ($139 value)

8 hours of battery life on the low side ; Windows button is touch, not physical button ; 3-foot charging cable is too short ; Conclusion ; Lenovo provides a lot of value with the Miix 2 8 for $299. The Bay Trail processor provides decent performance,...

LG has greatly improved their smartphone devices and I look forward to what else they launch in 2014. The G Flex seems to be a technology test device with the unique display design and back material, but there are outdated specs (low resolution...

The LG G Flex is big, fast, and—you guessed it—flexible. Beyond that, it's also one of the most versatile extra-large phablets around, thanks to LG's excellent multitasking implementation. T-Mobile's done away with carrier subsidies, so you can't snag...

LG G Flex Review (T-Mobile) Review

 

The LG G Flex's attention-grabbing curved display and self-healing design make it stand out, but the long battery life is our favorite feature.

Durable curved design; Colorful display; Very long battery life; Swift performance; Good multitasking features

Poor audio; Unnatural Rear Key placement; Display not as sharp as other flagships; Pricey

LG G Flex (AT&T) Review

 

LG's pricey 6-inch G Flex boasts a head-turning curved design, fast performance and a long-lasting battery, but some features are gimmicky.

World's first curved, flexible smartphone; Back can resist minor scratches; Display offers gorgeous colors; Sharp 13-MP camera; Long-lasting battery

Low screen resolution for price; Rear Key still problematic; Lackluster speaker

LG G Flex (Sprint) Review

 

A head-turning flexible design and vibrant display make the G Flex an exciting Android device, but it's not our favorite phablet.

Durable flexible design; Vivid color screen; Solid battery life; Sharp camera

Poor speaker quality; Inconvenient rear key design; Lower resolution than other flagship phones; Pricey

A head-turning flexible design and vibrant display make the G Flex an exciting Android device, but it's not our favorite phablet.
