I think it's great
Posted by: ChucknJo85
02/13/2014I've been reading reviews of this phone both professional and consumer. I don't understand some of their concerns. I've had this phone for 5 days now and I think it is great! I had the Samsung Mega which I bought for screen size which was huge but the phone was too slow. The Flex is super fast! And I fail to see what others are complaining about. Grainy screen? Bad camera? Maybe it's my 55 year old eyes but I think the display is bright, clear and amazing! And the camera takes excellent pictures. I debated between this phone and the Note 3 and I am very happy I chose The Flex.

A Great Tech Demo Phone With A Bad Camera
Posted by: Nikki9
from Milwaukee, WI on
02/09/2014This is the tech demo phone. A curved screen. The device actually is flexible. The back does self heal from small surface scratches (which is important, since it's difficult to find cases stocked in stores right now). The 6 inch display - if you're in the market for a phablet, is more pleasant to hold because of it's curve than something of similar size like the One Max. LG's new back button placement style is actually ergonomic on the G Flex, because of the size and curve of the device (as opposed to their use on the G2). The slight changes made to LG UI for the phone are pleasant, and it provides a much closer to stock Android experience than TouchWiz.
However, I really only strongly recommend this phone for tech enthusiasts looking to pave the way for future phone designs. Given that this phone is similar in size and price to, say, the Galaxy Note 3, the Note 3 is likely the better phone for the average user. The SPen isn't gimmicky, it's dead helpful on a near 6 inch device - it would be nice if this had something similar. The display on the Note 3 is 1080, the G Flex is 720. It's NOT BAD, but it's not great either. It definitely holds the phone back. The screen is just grainy. Like the old Samsung LED displays of old. It distorts the images in a similar way to how a smudge proof screen protector does. And then because the screen is grainy, Lg actually decided to emphasize the grain into their UI for the phone. I don't hate it, but it definitely makes images darker and muddier.
That screen is coupled with the problem of the camera. Yes it is 13 megapixels, but there is FAR more to a camera than how many megapixels it has. And this phone lacking optical image stabilization (the unit wouldn't fit in the flexi phone) makes images with any amount of low light muddy and distorted. To be fair to the phone, I've experienced similar problems with other large phone cameras. An iPhone or Lumia image this phones camera is not!
However, the Snapdragon 800 2.26 GHz Quad Core processor is incredibly BEAST, and the 3500 mAh battery will insure that it stays beastly for days. It's day 2, used out of the box with no charge (was about 70% on purchase) and it's got about 30% left still, and me and my fiancé have been using it like crazy!
In all, this is a fantastic phone, with a mediocre display, and a poor camera, with awesome new technologies that IMO completely make up for the grainy display and bad camera :). It really depends why you want to buy the phone!
