LG G Flex review

mobilesyrup.com
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.

LG G Flex Review: In Depth

Recombu
20 March 2014
  • 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

Expert Review

12 February 2014
  • Excerpt: The LG G Flex is a new animal. It's not the first smartphone to offer a rounded screen, but it's the first one you can buy here in the U.S., and it brings a lot to the table. Its swooping curves and semi-flexible chassis turn heads, while its impressive processor and battery help it beat most contenders in a specs war. It may be clunky to hold, and its display is pretty terrible, but the Flex remains a fun window into the future.
  • 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 (T-Mobile)

LAPTOP Magazine
5 February 2014
  • Summary: With its curved display and "self-healing" rear panel, the LG has broken the smartphone mold. The curvy handset gets points for its strong performance, long battery life and colorful display. However, while we like the G Flex's screen, other flagships offer a full 1080p HD display for the same price. We're also still not fans of the inconvenient Rear Key design.
  • Pros: Durable curved design, Colorful display, Very long battery life, Swift performance, Good multitasking features
  • Cons: Poor audio, Unnatural Rear Key placement, Display not as sharp as other flagships, Pricey

LG G Flex (AT&T)

LAPTOP Magazine
4 February 2014
  • Summary: The G Flex is an innovative smartphone that offers a colorful curved display, long-lasting battery and impressive performance. And the phablet's 6-inch flexible chassis and self-healing rear panel are sure to turn heads. However, the 720p resolution is a slight letdown, as is LG's decision to bring back its somewhat cumbersome Rear Key. The G Flex also offers almost too many different features, although we like Dual Window for multitasking.
  • Pros: World's first curved flexible smartphone, Back can resist minor scratches, Display offers gorgeous colors, Sharp 13-MP camera, Long-lasting battery
  • Cons: Low screen resolution for price, Rear Key still problematic, Lackluster speaker

LG G Flex (Sprint)

LAPTOP Magazine
3 February 2014
  • Summary: The G Flex is an Android flagship phone that desperately wants your attention. And this device grabs it with a unique curved screen and "self- healing" back. But while LG has certainly innovated in the design department, you still have to deal with the cumbersome Rear Key placement. If you put the special features aside, you're left with a device that offers a beautiful (albeit lower-res) display, strong performance, solid battery life and a sharp camera.
  • Pros: Durable flexible design, Vivid color screen, Solid battery life, Sharp camera
  • Cons: Poor speaker quality, Inconvenient rear key design, Lower resolution than other flagship phones, Pricey

LG G Flex review

theverge.com
7 January 2014
  • Summary: What if screens didn't have to be flat? It's a question designers and engineers have been asking for years as they imagined tablets you could roll up like a newspaper, or mocked-up smartwatches that were just screens coiled around our wrists. Displays could be even larger while devices shrank; they could be more durable and more flexible; they could even be on all four sides of a smartphone instead of just one.
  • Pros: Curved display, Great battery life, Excellent performance
  • Cons: Ugly, overwrought Android skin, Bland design, Nothing takes advantage of the curves
