LG G Flex 2 to Minimize Predecessor Shortcomings; to Come with Awesome Curves

February 23, 2015, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

Curved displays are now in. LG had also attracted its share of eyeballs when it brought forth the G Flex smartphone.

LG now seems to have been made amends to the lackluster effort earlier by bringing in the G Flex 2, the next in line device from the South Korean manufacturer.

G Flex was modestly praised for its curved approach, but where it had to deal with some crude backlash for its hefty form factor, and also failing to put a tempting display as expected on the curved screen.

Things had turned bizarre when loading a 720p resolution to a 6-inch screen of the G Flex. But now the company has turned it up to make the curved viewing much alluring.


A 5.5 inch screen now packs a 1080 display, effectively improving the viewing quality in all means. Flagship phones are now being accustomed to QHD displays, but LG’s full HD sounds to be rivaling with the top when touched with the curve factor.

Under the hood, G Flex 2 has got some major boosts, thanks to the advent of 64-bit technology. An octa-core processor finds the space in a Snapdragon 810 SoC, which gets accompanied by a 3GB RAM. 32 GB space is what offered by G Flex 2, which also can be expanded by means of micro SD. But this won’t be the universal spec standards for the G Flex successor. In some areas, LG would be bringing the 2GB RAM variant, with less space offering of only 16 GB.

The camera specs for the G Flex 2 have been left untouched from that of the predecessor. It’s the same 12 MP camera that fits in the rear, coming alongside the 2.1 MP front camera. Features like laser autofocus, optical image stabilization, dual-LED flash can be handy for the shooting aspects, and with the power packed specs inside, photo snapping could also get a bit quicker.

Something which would really mark the shift in the G Flex series would be its performance. LG has got its specs lined up for an optimized performance with Android L.

Sizeable reduction has been induced in the battery, but LG has also made a note to compensate for that. The 3,000 mAh battery will be filled up to half its mark in less than 40 minutes with LG’s Fast Charge technology. But as with its performance, a final word could only be made once the device gets in touch with the user’s hand.

G Flex 2 has also made it sure to let one-hand usability to the users. Slimmer bezels and reduced screen size will certainly provide the ease of use. The Gorilla Glass 3 is also not the one you see on the rest. LG’s own experiments with chemical and heat treatments have resulted in the Dura Guard Glass, which is better from its original by about 20% as per LG.

Overall, it’s worthy to say that LG has gone through some long-stretched sessions to write down the shortcomings of the earlier G Flex. Most of them now has been got rid of. Yet, it may still have to add up some fine touches to rival other models. We could have some may be, as LG is not yet fully done with the G Flex 2. The company has reminded users that certain alterations could be possible before the final model is rolled out.
