LG G Flex review
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.
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
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.
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.
Summary: Is the LG G Flex worth it? If you love big screens and don't care about the quality of its display, its value skyrockets. Other manufacturers will be hard-pressed to match the Flex's battery capacity in even their best smartphones, and there's more than enough power under its hood to take on whatever apps you want to download. Plus, the phone's bendability is pure fun.
Pros: LG's latest phone has an incredible battery and great processing power, but its coolest feature is unquestionably its physical curve.
Cons: Without optical image stabilization, its camera isn't as impressive as we've come to expect from flagship phones, while its unappealing POLED screen leaves us in a funk.
Summary: En líneas generales el LG G Flex es un móvil grande en todos lo sentidos, con unas características técnicas y prestaciones de gama alta , y un diseño totalmente innovador en su pantalla curva, que si bien quizá no ofrezca demasiados "pluses" sí será la envidia de tus amigos y familiares. Por cerrar este análisis del LG G Flex podríamos decir que se sustenta en tres puntos fuertes: batería, rendimiento y carcasa trasera que se regenera .
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.
Excerpt: We've already got a pretty good idea of what makes the LG G Flex tick: We've got our hands on the device at this year's Consumer Electronics Show and we unboxed it just a couple of days ago. So far it's proven to be an interesting phone thanks to its curved, flexible body.
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
