LG G Flex review: LG’s ‘curveball’ is a unique Android experience at a great cost

 

We've reached a point where numbers aren't everything when it comes to flagship smartphones. Yes, it is important to have good specifications since customers expect the best at the higher prices but they are also looking for something else, something...

Living on the cutting edge of technology doesn’t come cheap, especially if that technology is still in its nascent stages. The G Flex will cost you Rs 70,000 a pop and that’s a lot of money for a smartphone. As a ‘phablet’, the G Flex is easily amongst...

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

 

There's more to this phablet than its curved chassis, although the 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

Designing your digital site for desktop or laptop, as well as tablets and smartphones within a single codebase, is called responsive design. This ebook provides best practices to consider while thinking through your redesign.

LG G Flex (T-Mobile)

 

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

With its curved display and "self-healing" rear panel, the LG has broken the smartphone mold. The curvy handset gets points for its strong performance, long battery life and colorful display. However, while we like the G Flex's screen, other flagships...

LG G Flex (T-Mobile)

 

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.

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 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 (AT&T)

 

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

The G Flex is an innovative smartphone that offers a colorful curved display, long-lasting battery and impressive performance. And the phablet's 6-inch flexible chassis and self-healing rear panel are sure to turn heads. However, the 720p resolution is...

LG G Flex (Sprint)

 

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

The G Flex is an Android flagship phone that desperately wants your attention. And this device grabs it with a unique curved screen and "self- healing" back. But while LG has certainly innovated in the design department, you still have to deal with the...

LG G Flex review: Ahead of the curve

 

With so many flagship "plus ones" out there, it's refreshing to see something truly revolutionary. The LG G Flex is curved like a Beckham free kick and has a flexible screen and battery, along with a unique self-healing coating on the back.

Unique curved design ; Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE support; CDMA and 1xEV-DO ; Quad-band 3G with HSPA; Penta-band LTE Cat. 4 ; 6" 16M-color 720p curved POLED capacitive touchscreen; Gorilla glass ; Android OS v4.2.2 Jelly Bean; LG Optimus UI ; Quad-core...

Screen has low ppi, issues ; Rather large device even for a phablet ; No optical image stabilization for the camera ; The hardware controls at the back take some time getting used to ; No microSD slot ; Non-replaceable battery

LG G Flex

 

LG's flexible, self-healing G Flex is an innovative and fast handset that feels like the future of smartphones.

Ergonomic curved design; First flexible and self-healing smartphone; Gorgeous Real Stripe display; Impressive performance; Very good 13-MP camera

Not 1080p resolution; Lackluster speakers; Rear Key design not for everyone

With its curved design, flexible chassis and self-healing rear panel, the LG G Flex feels like the future of smartphones today. We also love the fast Snapdragon 800 processor and LG's new Dual Window multitasking feature, even if it copies Samsung's...

What if screens didn't have to be flat? It's a question designers and engineers have been asking for years as they imagined tablets you could roll up like a newspaper, or mocked-up smartwatches that were just screens coiled around our wrists. Displays...

Curved display ; Great battery life ; Excellent performance

Ugly, overwrought Android skin ; Bland design ; Nothing takes advantage of the curves

LG proved it can make a curved phone — now it has to prove I should buy one
