Review: LG G Flex 2

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  4  

Even if the LG G Flex 2 weren't curved, it would be a great phone. LG did a bang up job designing and assembling a spiffy phone of remarkable quality.

The Flex 2 nails pretty much every feature across the board. The screen looks fantastic, data and call performance was quite good, and battery life was superior. LG's decorative version of Android 5.0 offers genuinely helpful extras, such as the QSlide apps, and a cornucopia of options for making the phone your own.

The media tools — especially the camera — are excellent. The Flex 2 takes great pictures and is great fun when it comes time to watch YouTube videos or listen to the latest tunes. Features such as the TV remote control are nice bonuses.

After using the G Flex 2 for a week, however, the phone doesn't answer the existential question: Why? Why the curve? I totally appreciate the phone's flexibility, but the curved shape adds absolutely no value other than the design aesthetic, as far as I am concerned. I'm not saying there's anything wrong with it - not at all - but LG's claims that the curved shape fits your hand and face better are hard to quantify.

Would I recommend this phone? Sure. If you want a flagship device that stands apart from the crowd, the G Flex 2 offers exactly that experience. The curved shape and flexibility are unique, to say the least, and the Flex 2 delivers where it counts most.
