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.
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.
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.
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.
