LG G Flex 2 review

 

LG's new flexible phone has a higher resolution display and faster self healing powers

Curve really works ; Flexible full HD display ; Huge power

It's pretty big ; Battery not replaceable ; “Self-healing” back no good

LG G Flex 2 review

 

This curved Android phone flexes with more muscle

Smaller 5.5 inch display ; Flexible and durable build ; Speedy Snapdragon 810 chip ; Improved camera features ; Android 5.0 Lollipop

Inconsistent CPU speeds ; Battery not swappable ; Curve still doesn't add much ; Easily scratched self-healing back ; Pricier than LG's flagship

Scores in depth The new LG G Flex 2 isn't the world's first curved smartphone, but it is the first one that has the muscle to back up its constant, ostentatious flexing.

LG G Flex 2 review: Is curved the new cool? - Pocket-lint

 

The LG G Flex 2 might be an oddball, but we like the design and the experience. The excellent camera performance is a highlight, but the display isn't

Unique design not just a gimmick, plenty of power, great camera performance

Display isn't the best quality, LG's software is a little insensitive of Lollipop, battery life isn't great

Overall the LG G Flex 2 has plenty to offer, and not just because it's curved. There's lots of power and it performs well, even if we couldn't detect a huge real-world increase in performance over the last generation of Snapdragon hardware.

LG G Flex 2 review

 

Has LG made the world's first great curved smartphone?

Deep blacks Strong contrast Lovely to handle Slightly flexible

Picture could be more subtle Sound could be more exciting Self-healing back easily damaged Occasional stability issues

We have mixed feelings about the LG G Flex 2. When it’s good, it’s great. But the user experience is let down by a few hiccups, which keep the device from being on the same tier as flagship smartphones. This is a good choice if you want a powerful...

LG G Flex 2 review - the bendy phone that self heals

 

The G Flex 2's curved screen looks great, but an overly glossy chassis and average battery life detract from its overall appeal

LG G Flex 2

 

The LG Flex 2 is the Korean company's second stab at a curved smartphone. Unlike the Galaxy Note Edge, this is a phone that's all curve from the screen to the predominantly plastic body. The original G Flex was packed with innovative, albeit ultimately...

Curved design is more manageable ; Sharp 1080p HD screen ; Improved low-light camera performance from G3

Some performance and overheating issues ; Curve not very useful ; Slightly tacky looking plastic back

LG G Flex 2 review

 

Second time around the curved phone makes a lot more sense

Lovely curvy ergonomics ; Mighty CPU ; Bags of features

Not the very best in terms of camera or screen ; Plastic back feel ; Not the most stylish UI

Second time around the curved phone makes a lot more sense - the G Flex 2 is a proper phone with proper appeal

LG G Flex 2 hands-on at CES 2015: Curved smartphone gets nice upgrades

 

Ok, we weren't very impressed with the original G Flex which was something of a concept phone. The curve seemed like a gimmick and more a showcase of what the firm could do rather than something consumers genuinely wanted or needed.

LG G Flex 2 hands-on review

 

The original G Flex was an interesting idea. We had seen curved displays used in other products such as TVs but not a smartphone. Its convex design was ergonomic (and made far more sense than Samsung's Galaxy Curve which curved side-to-side). However,...

It's great to see LG come back with a follow-up to the original G Flex which look and feels better and comes with a ton of improvements. It’s the first exciting smartphone of the year and likely to be the best we see at CES 2015.
