THE LG G FLEX 2 HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. PLEASE FIND ALTERNATIVES HERE.
LG G Flex 2 Overview
Curved screens are everywhere in tech now, from top of the range 4K TVs to affordable smart watches - the future is here.
LG launched the original G Flex in 2014, one of very few smartphone manufacturers to take the risk of manufacturing an expensive niche device. This year the technology is somewhat more available and LG are looking to stun the industry with an absolute powerhouse.
The screen itself is a huge 5.5 inch, practically edge-to-edge full HD 1080p display using P-OLED technology for beautiful deep colours and warm transitions. The curvature improves viewing angles for panoramic scenes and develops immersion for involved gaming or intense scenes.
Design cues from LG's previous smartphones remain on the G Flex 2, with all control buttons on the rear to stop them spoiling the clean lines of the phone. Neat features such as Glance View for conserving battery life also return.
The G Flex 2 will also be one of the first smartphones in the world to launch with Qualcomm's new Snapdragon 810 processor. This brand new technology provides a 2.8 GHz octa-core 64-bit CPU. You'll find incredible performance and never slow down, the G Flex 2 will be able to handle anything you throw at it.
Taking pictures on the LG G3 was a dream thanks to the Laser Autofocus module that snapped shots into focus quicker than any other smartphone on the market. This incredible feature makes its return on the G Flex 2, along with optical image stabilisation and scene recognition.
We use our smartphones for all manner of tasks and it's understandable they might pick up a few scratches along the way. Brilliantly, LG has included a self-healing coating for the G Flex 2's rear that will recover from the sort of light scratches and marks daily use can inflict.
