First look at the curved, powerful LG G Flex 2By Tim Schiesser 8 comments
A brand new smartphone landed on my desk today: the LG G Flex 2. The flagship, curved handset from LG was launched at CES 2015, includes a Snapdragon 810 SoC under the hood, and features a 5.5-inch curved P-OLED display with a resolution of 1080p. Check out my first impressions of the device in the video above, and look out for a full review in the coming weeks.
When LG's first G Flex smartphone came out, it was more or less a public experiment with its self-healing capabilities and curved display. The G Flex 2 follows up with a much improved screen, bumped specs, expandable storage and borrowing from the LG G3, the 13-megapixel camera includes laser auto focus and OIS+ as well as a dual-LED flash. The self-healing back cover has returned albeit with some improvements. Where it used to take about three minutes to heal on the original, the G Flex 2 can pull off the same feat in around 10 seconds at room temperature.
