Mental device this! a bendy phone that was £700 on release in October 2013. I am sure lots of you will have plenty to say about the 720p screen but this is a bargain for £260!
Setting a new milestone in the evolution of the smartphone, LG Electronics take the wraps off the LG G Flex, a smartphone curved to follow the contour of the face, the first device to offer such a design in the smartphone market.
The vertically curved design of the LG G Flex reduces the distance between one's mouth to the microphone when the device is held against the ear. The LG G Flex employs a curvature arc that is optimized for the average face, to deliver improved voice and sound quality. The curved design also offers a more reassuring grip and fits more comfortably in one's back pocket. What's more, in landscape mode, the display offers an immersive, cinematic experience, with the result being the most comfortable viewing angle for watching videos or playing games.
LG G Flex also features the Rear Key first introduced in the LG G2. Devoid of any buttons on the sides, there is less chance of accidentally powering off the phone and the convenience of using one's index finger to adjust the volume when conversing is maintained.
The 6-inch ultra-thin, ultra-light flexible Plastic OLED (POLED) display and curved OLED panel are built on plastic substrates instead of glass, giving LG G Flex its unique shape and durability. The POLED display is brighter and more precise thanks to the application of Real RGB, which contains all three sub-pixels — red, green and blue — in one pixel.
Despite its thin form, the LG G Flex curved battery has a capacity of 3,500mAh, enough power for more than a full day of use.
Additionally, the LG G Flex boasts a "self-healing" coating on the back cover, which gives this innovative flexible cell phone the ability to recover from scratches and nicks.
