The future of smartphones is here, but don't get too excited

Unqiue design ; Fantastic battery life ; Capable camera

Creaky build ; Display is average ; Childish icons ; Very expensive

LG G Flex review - Pocket-lint

 

-

Interesting design will 'turn heads', comfortable to use as a phone, amazing battery life, big screen is fabulous to use, high quality audio feature

OLED has noticeable grain on image, phone is big and heavy, sometimes feels a big laggy, far too expensive, no microSD slot, limited internal storage, expensive

We do love the G Flex, because it's an interesting phone and one that worked for us. However, the reality is that most people will find it's too big, too irregularly shaped and, most crucially of all, too expensive. There will, of course, be those for...

The LG G Flex is the maker's very first curved Android smartphone

OLED Display ; Great battery life ; Curved screen great for video

It’s enormous ; Boring design ; Annoying UI

LG G Flex video review: Phablet offers first curved screen experience

 

The design of the G Flex is striking although we've had to try hard not to call it the banana phone. It's certainly one you can show off to your mates down the pub but the novelty quickly wears off.

LG G Flex review

 

The LG is the first smartphone maker to give us a properly curved screen smartphone so here's our in-depth LG G Flex review.

The LG G Flex has some decent hardware including a great camera and more storage than usual. Excellent software is also a lure but its main feature, the curved screen, is too big, only 720p and offers no real benefits. This phablet is too gimmicky so...

LG G Flex review

 

It's different, we grant you that, but is the curvy G Flex also revolutionary?

A battery that goes on and on ; Great performance, just like the G2 ; Curved screen gives great viewing angles

No Full HD screen ; Camera lacks OIS

An interesting experiment, but a couple of spec disappointments mean G Flex isn’t the absolute classic it could have been

LG G Flex

 

If you can forgive the lower res screen, the G Flex offers all the goodness of the G2 with an added curvy cool factor

Distinctive design ; Great battery life ; Big screen ; Useful software touches ; High-res music capability

720p screen ; Camera could be better ; No microSD slot ; Expensive

There’s no doubt that the LG G Flex is an impressive phone. Its problem is it has a seriously capable smaller brother in the G2 at nearly half the price, and a number of big-screen competitors snapping at its heels with full HD screens.

World’s first curved smartphone ; Spacious screen for multi-tasking ; Fantastic battery life ; Feature-packed

Pricey ; Not actually very curved or flexible ; Six-inch screen lacks sharpness

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.
