Excerpt: Here is a curious phone. It’s a large phone, and at first glance, it bears great resemblance to many such large phones that have come before it. But in an attempt to differentiate itself, this one is equipped with a curved screen . Its arc runs lengthwise — grasping it in your hand, you gaze upon all six impressive inches of it as it extends away from your body, curving gently skyward. The concave glass panel is the most noteworthy thing about this phone.
Pros: Good heavens, it’s curved! 3500mAh battery lasts a really long time. A dual-window feature lets you run two apps side-by-side on that massive screen — drag and drop photos into text messages, for example. Well spec’d: Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 32GB of storage, 13-megapixel camera.
Cons: It’s obscenely huge. Please put it away before you frighten the children. The display isn’t great: the screen is grainy with noticeable ghosting. Performance lags more than it should. The flash is terrible. Supposedly scratch-resistant plastic back is not resistant to scratches.
Conclusion: While the curved frame takes centre stage, there is a lot more to the LG G Flex. Ultimately, though, a less than cutting edge screen, old Android, the fact that the curve doesn’t really add anything, and the high price do not go in its favour.
Summary: Met de G Flex zet LG de eerste echt buigbare telefoon op de markt. De phablet is een grotere versie van de G2 en moet vooral laten zien wat LG met een gebogen scherm kan doen. In deze review nemen we hem uitgebreid onder de loep.
