LG G Flex review

26 May 2014
  • Excerpt: In the latter part of 2013, two companies decided to try and take innovation to a different level by debuting devices with curved displays. While Samsung has yet to introduce its device to the majority of the world, LG has successfully launched its curved device, the G Flex to a global market. What is perhaps most unique about the G Flex is not only its curved design, but also its ability to actually lay flat under unintended stress.

LG G Flex review

mobilesyrup.com
9 May 2014
  • Summary: The LG G Flex is a successful experiment, not because the gimmicks add very much to the overall experience but because they don’t detract from what is already a very good Android smartphone. It’s unclear what LG wants to accomplish with its curved POLED screen technology, but this is unlikely the endgame.

LG G Flex

Steve's Digicams
1 May 2014
  • Excerpt: LG has released another potential flagship Google-powered Android smartphone, the G Flex . It works with Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile cellular networks and can be purchased with or without a two-year contract. It features the same 4.4.2 KitKat OS, 2.26 GHz quad-core processor and 2G of RAM as the Nexus 5, but the G Flex has a HUGE 6.0-inch curved HD OLED touchscreen display.

LG G Flex: A Poor Start for Curved Phones

mashable.com
14 April 2014
  • Excerpt: As the first phone with a curved screen to go on sale in the U.S., the LG G Flex commands attention. It screams, both as an object and as a new kind of device, "Hey, look at me!" Once you do, the implied follow-up is, "Do you like what you see?" Uh, kinda? I've spent a lot of time with many different smartphones over the past few years, and never once have I thought, "You know what this phone needs? A curved screen.

LG G Flex Review

  • Summary: Even with its odd appearance, the LG G Flex brings its highly up-to-date chipset to the phablet, which ensures supreme performance. Even with its drawbacks, the G Flex is one of the most attractive and powerful phablets currently available on the market. Still, its display is full of flaws and it is only its flexible design that singles it out from even the mid-range competition.
  • Pros: Atypical design, Decent hardware performance, Great for multitasking, Battery life
  • Cons: Display imaging dull in spots, Images linger on display, No microSD, Handset slow to wake up from stand-by mode

LG G Flex review: curve appeal

gearburn.com
23 March 2014
  • Excerpt: The world’s first curved phone, the LG G Flex, is not great. It’s an average Android phone with a major issue: the display. Also, it’s sluggish in places where it really shouldn’t be. And its one selling point, the curved screen, is average at best. What I have in my hand is a cool template, or prototype for a phone that will one day be a must-buy. But what LG’s trying to sell here is proof-of-concept, and I for one am unconvinced.

  • Excerpt: We've been pulling and prodding the LG G Flex smartphone, the world's first curved mobile phone, and here's our full review of this 6-inch feature-packed phablet. While reviewing LG’s G Flex, the world’s first curved, flexible phablet, my brain decided to continually sing Duran Duran’s ‘Reflex’, but with G Flex in its place.
  • Pros: World’s first curved smartphone, Spacious screen for multi-tasking, Fantastic battery life, Feature-packed
  • Cons: Pricey, Not actually very curved or flexible, Six-inch screen lacks sharpness

LG G Flex

19 March 2014
  • Summary: This is certainly an interesting phone and a valuable addition to the LG family, it has a very fast processor, nice OS, strong battery and a unique design. So if you can deal with its large size, average display and expensive price then you should definitely consider it. If, however, you’re looking for something more practical, then you should consider LG’s G2.
  • Pros: Flexible body, fast processor, nice software, long life battery and good camera.
  • Cons: Physically large, expected to be expensive and there is no microSD card slot.

LG G Flex

  • Summary: The pricing of the G Flex makes it certain that few will buy it. Only those who want to be ahead of the curve will be looking to invest £700 in a flexible, curved phone. The phone certainly has wow factor, but it also has "why?" factor, which is less cool. Having said all that, the ability of the phone to flex does make it much less likely to break if you drop it or sit on it.

LG G Flex has the bends, but not enough brawn

CNET
4 March 2014
  • Summary: Despite a novel construction and scuff-proof exterior, the LG G Flex's doesn't flex enough muscle against the Samsung Galaxy Round or the Note 3.
  • Pros: The LG G Flex 's contoured display renders media watching more immersive, it features a scratch-resistant coating, and its sizable battery provides an adequate amount of juice.
  • Cons: The G Flex's massive size can be unwieldy, its camera quality is mediocre, and its 720p display can't outpace its competitors.
