Another signficant price drop for the bendy phone. First person to make an iPhone joke wins a special prize!

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.

First person to make an iPhone joke wins a special prize!


That will be Tim Cook the boss of Apple

I love the look of this phone but after reading all of the bad reviews I'm going to wait for the Flex2.

Sorry, this joke fails as it did not refer to the bendyness of the iPhone 6. I am cancelling the competition out of anger. Everyone, you have rpope to blame for not getting a chance at the prize.

But he called it magic and revolutionary when it was released..... (just like every iPhone before it)oO

That was the earliest iPhone 6 joke. I claim my prize now......8)

Excellent price for one of my favourite handsets of 2014! Heat OP!

If you want a good value BIG phone, look at the Xperia Z Ultra, as long as you don't mind a very poor camera - that phone is a proper bargain if you can get the 10% too...

I've owned both the Z Ultra and the G Flex and the G Flex trumps the Z Ultra in every way other than display and the display on the G Flex isn't as shabby as people make out. Very nice phone!

Nice phone but I still need time to acclimatise to a six inch screen as I am sure will happen as it did with 5.5 inch.
Probably look normal once we see people using 7 inch phones.

clearly the iphone6 is more revolutionary as it bends to suit ......I know a few guys down my local market who have a lot of bent phones at very good prices no guarantee apart from it was someone else's

You will read more bad reviews about Flex2 just like any product that is released.

What are you going to do than wait for flex3?

Isn't all stuff from Expansys shipped over from Hong Kong - making it grey goods? That isn't permitted when it's SLRHut which imports from America (arguably more reliable) but it is with Expansys...?

Clearly the G Flex is more revolutionary as it was designed to be able to talk into and listen at the same time. A problem that some reality TV stars seem to have a issue with, which the boffins at LG have now hopefully fixed.

i have this phone, just the AT&T version unlocked, the battery life is bar the best i have ever had on any phone, i have all the iphones, note 2, note 3, samsung s4, s5

ok its not the fastest phone but some nice touches and the buttons on the back work for me,

the double tap to wake and sleep becomes 2nd nature in not time..

Remember - those bad reviews were at £700 or so, not this price.

The Z Ultra display is pretty impressive but trumps it in every other way? What about being waterproof and having a microSD card slot?
