LG G Flex 2 Specs & Price

Best Anniversary Sale 2024

The LG G Flex 2 is a followup of last year’s G Flex. Compared to the LG G Flex, the G Flex2 offers a respectable specs lineup including the 64-bit, octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 and smaller, but more brilliant 5.5-inch Curved P-OLED display.

LG G Flex 2

The G Flex series started last year as a way for the Korean manufacturer to brush shoulders with a fellow competitor, Samsung, and release a phone that would test the limits of interesting smartphone form factors.

LG did some things right with the G Flex 2, but everyone is still not convinced on the Curved form factor. We will also try to compare the G Flex 2 with the original G Flex smartphone.

The Display

The original G Flex featured a 6-inch screen with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels (245ppi). In contrast, the LG G Flex 2 comes with a 5.5-inch, P-OLED (acronymic for plastic OLED) display with a better screen resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels (403ppi).

Here, LG scaled down the display half an inch to make the device similar LG G3 (and thereby make it more comfortable to hold), while maintaining an acceptable screen resolution (though brighter) alongside of LG’s Plastic OLED technology.

We’ve seen LG’s plastic OLED technology before in the first G Flex, but LG has now placed the P-OLED display in the company’s second Android Wear smartwatch (called the G Watch R). The P-OLED displays are one unique contribution LG has in the mobile space.

More Differences

LG reduced the display size to make G Flex 2 more consumer-friendly than its predecessor, but there are few additional differences between the LG G Flex 2 and its ancestor.

LG G Flex 2 comes with Google’s latest Android 5.0 (Lollipop) out of the box and this is sure to please Android fans. The company also added a new 64-bit processor to the LG G Flex 2 package, bringing along two quad-core processors (ARM Cortex A57 + ARM Cortex A53), clocking at 2.0GHz and 1.5GHz respectively to produce an octa-core processor that can run both quad-core processors at the same time.

Android manufacturers have always had an implicit goal in mind of “futureproofing” their devices, with this processor and 3GB of RAM, it safe to say that the LG G Flex 2 is future-proof for a couple of years.

LG added Optical Image Stabilization (or OIS) to the 13 megapixels rear camera on the G Flex2 (a feature absent in the first generation G Flex), and even provides microSD card support for its two memory storage models (16GB, 32GB). Last year’s G Flex was a 32GB device, but LG decided to provide two memory storage models (with different pricing, no doubt) to appeal to consumers who always want to “save at the counter” but may purchase expandable storage down the line.

Much of the same

LG G Flex 2 offers the same 2.1 megapixels front camera and 13 megapixels back camera (despite the new OIS photo tech), but the battery life has been reduced from 3,500mAh down to 3,000mAh in the G Flex 2 (likely due to the reduced screen size).

You should still get stellar battery life because the battery is still robust at 3,000mAh, and the new battery-saving mode within Google’s Android 5.0 Lollipop will provide additional on-screen time to help you eke out the battery life you desire. The self-healing cover is still part of the mix, though improved.

With that said, however, an octa-core processor (or two quad-core processors), better resolution, and OIS photo tech are not all that make a great smartphone. If we were talking about the LG G4, these new additions wouldn’t be enough, although they would be a step in the right direction.

When buying this phone, the best question to ask yourself comes down to the form factor: is the “curved” display enough to grab your attention or the eyes of those around you? What is the curve for in the display, if not just to “sit there”? We hoped that LG would find a purpose or utility for the curved display, but it seems as though we’re still expecting too much – even out of the company’s second-generation display.

Pricing and availability

LG G Flex 2 is not yet available in Nigeria, but some stores in Europe have started taking pre-orders. We currently have no data on pricing and availability for Nigeria. When available, LG G Flex2 Price in Nigeria is expected to range from N120,000 to N150,000 at launch.
