Summary: There were two reasons we don't have benchmarks on the G Flex, first - I didn't have Internet access at home to download all of the required benchmarks, and to update them all. Second, I only had a week with the handset.
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.

While reviewing LG’s G Flex, the world’s first curved, flexible phablet, my brain decided to continually sing Duran Duran’s ‘Reflex’, but...
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
