Soon after Samsung launched the Galaxy Round, LG decided to offers it’s own part of curvy goodness. The Korean gadget maker recently unveiled the G Flex with an impressive 6-inch curved display. However, unlike the Galaxy Round, which has a horizontally curved screen, the G Flex sports a vertical top-to-bottom curve.
But, why that curve anyways? According to LG, apart from offering a better grip, the curve is also responsible for delivering much better sound and voice quality. At the back of the handset is an elastic coating, which acts as a protection against scratches caused due to sudden impacts.
Let’s now move on to the most crucial part, the features.
- 6-inch Curved P-OLED display
- Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2
- 2.26 GHz Quad Core processor
- 2 GB RAM
- 13 MP primary camera
- 2.1 MP secondary camera
- 3500 mAh battery
The 6-inch display is currently the world’s largest Plastic OLED display ever developed for a smartphone. Above all, the device packs in a fabulous 3500 mAh battery that can easily last for an entire day. While most of the handsets these days come with an 8 MP standard camera (expect a few with a 12 MP camera), this one sports an impressive 13 MP snapper.
The LG G Flex also pumps in some brand new UX features such as the dual-window, face detection indicator and the urgent call alert. You might probably be more interested in exploring the QTheatre feature that allows you to access photos and videos from the lock-screen.
The features seem to be quite promising. You won’t have any problems with the design either. The handset is not currently available for grabs. So, you’ll probably have to wait for a while until you get your hands on it. It’s definitely too early to rate the handset. But, a decent 8 on 10 should be fine. How would you rate it?
