LG G Flex Review
3 April 2014
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
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: The future's bright, the future's curved, or so the Koreans would have us believe. LG is giving us a taste of flexible OLED screens with the G Flex smartphone. It's interesting for sure, but just serves to demonstrate some of the teething problems of this new technology.
LG G Flex review: LG’s ‘curveball’ is a unique Android experience at a great cost
10 February 2014
Summary: Living on the cutting edge of technology doesn’t come cheap, especially if that technology is still in its nascent stages. The G Flex will cost you Rs 70,000 a pop and that’s a lot of money for a smartphone. As a ‘phablet’, the G Flex is easily amongst the best there is. It’s built very well and looks absolutely stunning, second to the Nokia Lumia 1520 . And it’s not like LG compromised on the hardware as well since it’s every bit as powerful as the G2.
Conclusion: The LG G Flex's closest rival Samsung's GALAXY Round comes with a horizontally curved screen. It lacks the self-healing tech and flexibility that's there on the G Flex. ore importantly, it's only available in Korea. However, just because there's no direct competition to G Flex doesn't mean that it's a good phone. We don't deny the fact that creating a flexible phone is an engineering achievement.
Pros: Unique design; Good performance; Excellent battery life.
Cons: Looks odd; Average camera; Unreasonable pricing; Flexible body doesn't improve the handling; Self-healing is questionable.
Excerpt: Ifølge LG skal skærmen først og fremmest have ergonomiske fordele. Tale skal eksempelvis gå tydeligere igennem ved telefonopkald, da mikrofonen kommer tættere på munden. Det kan der på sin vis være noget om. Mobilens diskrete kurve gør ganske rigtig, at den kommer få millimeter tættere munden end sine stivnakkede konkurrenter. Noget kæmpe udslag i samtalekvaliteten gør den dog ikke.
Summary: Alors que nous étions encore en train de nous remettre de l'excellent G2, LG a dévoilé son G Flex, premier smartphone du constructeur avec écran semi-flexible incurvé de 6". Un phablet au design original qui promet beaucoup sur le papier, au delà même de sa courbure. Mais que vaut l'appareil au quotidien ?
