LG G Flex 2 Review

(H950) Score: 8.45/10

LG G Flex 2 is a fascinating phone released more than a year ago, with a very powerful 64 bit Octa-Core processing unit (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core at 2000 megahertz and another Quad-Core ticking at 1500 megahertz), a really big 5.5 inches touch-screen, and two cameras, a 13 megapixels back-facing camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front side camera.

LG decided to power this cellphone using a high performance 64 bit Octa-Core CPU (as a matter of fact it's really a Quad-Core running at 2 gigahertz and an additional Quad-Core speeding at 1.5 gigahertz), packed into a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 MSM8994 chip with a big 3 GB RAM memory. Graphic rendering usually uses a lot of processor cycles, so it counts with an extra 600 megahertz Adreno 430 GPU to help the processor with those tasks. A great aspect of the LG G Flex 2 is the 32 GB big internal memory and an external memory card slot, allowing you to install hundreds of applications and even the heaviest games available nowadays without having to worry about filling the device.

The LG G Flex 2 is much lighter than what one would expect from a phone this size. This phone has an amazing design, with a thickness of just 0.37". Though this cellphone is only 5.87 inches long, it manages to hold a 5.5" screen. LG made this cellphone in gray and red.

This cellphone has a great 5.5 inches screen with a 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution, which makes all images and videos look absolutely great. Its screen uses P-OLED capacitive technology, and allows multi-touch for gestures like pinch and zoom.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 13 mega-pixels back side camera and a 2.1 mega-pixels front facing camera. The LG G Flex 2 also shoots 4K 3840x2160 videos at 30 frames per second, and slow-motion videos in (Full HD) (1920x1080) up to 60 frames per second (2 times slower than reality). This camera also includes many interesting characteristics: flash, optical image stabilization, auto-focus, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This cellphone counts with a large 3000 mAh non-replaceable battery, which is quite low for a highly demanding phone like this. A big issue to consider is that the LG G Flex 2's battery is non-removable so you won't be able to replace it when it begins to get older, having to buy a new cellphone to "solve it" or maybe take it to someone who can open it and change its battery.

This cellphone features wifi connection (although it can't be provided to other devices as a mobile mobile hotspot), LTE (4G) high speed connection type and also HSPA+ connection type, which is a slower 4G technology or 3G fast data connection, supported by HSDPA, UMTS and EDGE technologies. This cellphone doesn't have a SIM card, because it doesn't support GSM services.

This device also features some interesting features like Bluetooth (4.1), GPS Localization and Near Field Communication (NFC), and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

This cellphone is a really good offer considering it's an awesome phone and it just costs $ 185. No matter if you will use it for playing games, need a device for work, want a social cellphone or you love taking photos, you will probably be very happy with this device.
