The recent CES 2015 brought with it a number of new smartphone releases, but one of the stand out offerings was from LG. The LG G Flex 2 is the second curved smartphone offering from the South Korean electronics giant, so if you thought that curved smartphones were just a fad then think again. LG are offering something that other smartphone manufacturers aren’t, and that’s enough reason to take a closer look.
The Guts of the G Flex 2
Sidelining its distinctive appearance for just a second, lets start with taking a look at what’s under the hood. First up, being equipped with Qualcomm’s brand new Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core 64-bit processor makes it a world first. A processor specifically optimized for Android coupled with 2GB Ram makes the LG G Flex 2 capable of handling even the most demanding apps. On top of that, it features a 5.5 inch P-OLED HD 1080×1920 display with 403ppi. This hardware alone puts it ahead of many of the world’s current leading smartphones.
The G Flex 2 is an all-round better offering when compared to the original G Flex, in terms of hardware and design. It comes in two colours, platinum silver and flamenco red, and features a distinctive finish on the back of the phone. The curve is less pronounced than the original, which is actually an improvement, as if fits ergonomically around the side of your face when you’re talking on it.
Self Healing Technology
Another great feature is the self healing technology that makes minor scratches a breeze to buff out. LG are attempting to reduce the need for a phone case, something the majority of smartphone owners rely on to keep their phone looking fresh. The durability of the new phone compared to the original is something LG worked hard on to improve. See what people at CES 2015 thought of LG’s curvy smartphone in the video below:
