LG G Flex

Excerpt: Presentato ad Ottobre, LG G Flex non è il primo smartphone ad adottare un display curvo, ma il primo ad essere realmente flessibile . Dopo averlo provato per alcune settimane, possiamo finalmente presentarvelo con questa nostra recensione.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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
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.
Conclusion: There’s no doubt the LG G Flex is a unique smartphone. Not only does it have one of the largest displays on the market, but this phablet also has a curved form that really sets it apart. Overall, we were surprised at how comfortable the G Flex felt in the hand. And for a device that has such a large footprint, it didn’t feel any heavier than an average smartphone. LG equips the G Flex with a number of features that make it stand out in the crowd.
Pros: Excellent multitasking features, Curved 6-inch display, Great battery life
Cons: No microSD card slot, 720p display rather than 1080p, Fixed battery
