LG went back to its curved drawing board to correct all the mistakes of the original G Flex such as its nothing special 720p display and awkward size and delivered a gazebo-worthy device, with its new LG G Flex 2. The company put its arched handset on a pedestal from a publicity stunt to an arched handset you actually want, irrespective of the shape, endowing it with the most up-to-date quad-hub Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm and crystal-clear 1080p touch screen. Such a task does not come easy for LG.
LG has had difficulty carving a place for itself in the Android market, despite pumping out premium phones such as the G3, Google Nexus 5 and G Pro 2 steadily. The devices from LG are short of the stylish aesthetic of the peculiar customization enticements of Motorola, the HTC One series and the brand consciousness of Samsung that overshadows all these companies. It looked as if LG was bound to be without a hero phone that could distinguish itself for a while. That is, until the G Flex 2.
LG is not holding back and it is clear that the G Flex 2 will elevate LG and give its rivals a run for their money, with this high-end handset.
LG G Flex 2 Design
The handset comes in platinum silver and flamenco red, with a premium artistic that feels extraordinarily luxe. G Flex 2 is 15 percent lighter, thinner and lighter, compared to its predecessor. It has a profile of 0.3 to 0.4 inches at the thickest of 149 by 75 by 7.1 to 9.4mm, measures 5.9 inches tall and 3 inches wide and weighs 5.4 ounces (152 grams). The G Flex 2 is now much more manageable in your hand and easier to maneuver, as a result of this reworked size.
It is quite easier to hold the iteration vertically when making calls and horizontally while watching videos, unlike the unwieldy G Flex, but it is still won’t be a comfortable fit in your jean pockets. The handset is premeditated to withstand a certain degree of abuse, despite the fact that it is not a rugged device by any means. You can push against or step on its apex to flatten it straight when it is facing down while you can press down its curling edges when it is facing upward.
The battery door of G Flex 2 Smartphone is layered with a slick protective coating, similar to the original. The phone has no problem fending off everyday scratches and scuffs.
LG G Flex 2 Screen
Due to in-house chemical treatment, LG has made the Gorilla Glass touch-screen of the device to be 20 percent stronger. The screen can easily be viewed in sunlight with the brightness turned all the way up, G Flex 2 has a wide viewing angle and it is also responsive.
LG G Flex 2 Camera and video
The quality of photo for the camera shooter was well thought-of. The auto-focused was sharp when locked onto an object, the camera retained a good amount of fine detail when zooming into a photo and the shutter was fast and responsive. The camera is impressive on the whole.
The G Flex 2 has a top-of-the-line processor deserved by its bold design. It sports a uniquely comfortable and immersive sharp 1080p display, arched design, a scratch-resistant coating and the latest Snapdragon 810 processor.
