LG G Flex2 video review

February 18, 2015

I first played with the LG G Flex2 at CES 2015, and just spent a few days using it. The verdict? It’s a fantastic phone — arguably LG’s new flagship.

Unlike the original G Flex, with its 6-inch 720p curved screen, the G Flex2 features a much improved 5.5-inch 1080p plastic AMOLED display. It’s also one of the first handsets to pack Qualcomm’s latest powerhouse chipset, the 64-bit Snapdragon 810. The G Flex2 is otherwise almost identical to last year’s G3, with a 13-megapixel shooter, laser autofocus, and (slightly more advanced) optical image stabilization. Still, LG’s camera software lacks basic manual controls, which is unfortunate considering the quality of the hardware.

Ultimately though, the G Flex2 looks great, ticks all the boxes, and runs Lollipop like a champ. What else do you really need? Check out my video review :)
