LG G2

The LG G2 is the latest offering from LG, built to compete with the best selling devices out there. LG have taken an interesting risk by placing buttons on the back of the device. The power button, volume up, and volume down buttons on the back of the device force users to adjust their natural hand position. However, LG have cleverly reduced the need to reach around to the back. A quick double tap on the touchscreen will wake the device and locking and returning it to sleep can also be done from the screen. The volume buttons also double up as zoom or shutter buttons in camera mode. Another outstanding feature is the screen. The device itself is similar in size to the top of the line devices out there, but the screen has been enlarged to a beautiful 5.2-inch, 1080p IPS screen. The front of the device is almost all screen, with barely there bezels, and only minimal space at the bottom for the LG logo.

The smartphone is powered by the quad core 2.26 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor from Qualcomm with 2GB of RAM. Graphics are provided by the improved Adreno 330 graphics processor, all of which amounts to a device that can load and render the most demanding apps with ease. To top it all off, despite the vast performance under the hood, battery life is outstanding - being able to easily last a day and a half of medium to light use, which only one other device (the Moto X) out there can compete with nowadays. The LG G2 is a remarkable device that easily beats the competition in many aspects.

Cutting-edge innovator. This smartphone wants to boost itself to the forefront of our Top 10 with awesomely swift hardware and rearranged physical buttons. The LTE phone has a good chance of accomplishing that with the Snapdragon 800 and a Full HD IPS screen. However, it must first overcome a few obstacles.
LG G2 vs iPhone 5s smartphone comparison review: LG G2 is a bargain, the iPhone 5s is a great phone
Source: Macworld.co.uk English
The LG G2 is without a doubt a great deal. If you are in the market for an Android phone we can't recommend it enough. And you would save some money buying the LG over upgrading to the most recent high-end iPhone. But we think that your smartphone is worth more than the £200 saving the LG G2 represents over the iPhone 5s. Go for Android if that is what you want, but if like us you are dyed-in-the-wool iPhone users, the premium is worth paying.

LG has trumped the competition with the G2. The phone offers a combination of value for money with high-end features which we haven't seen from rival flagship devices. A great specification combined with impressive design and handy software features mean there's very little to dislike about this handset - only really the lack of a microSD card slot.

The LG G2 is an extremely impressive handset in many ways. The screen is superb, the phone feels compact despite its large display, and its camera and battery life are astounding. We’re not keen on the rear-mounted buttons, but like LG's software modifications. The only thing keeping it from an award is the lack of a microSD card slot - not a problem if you don’t load your phone with films and games, but not having expandable storage will be a deal-breaker for some.

LG’s G2: The phondleslab that wants you to TOUCH ITS BEHIND
Source: Reg Hardware English
If you can live with the fixed battery and equally fixed storage, the G2 is a rather impressive bag of tricks. It’s surprisingly small and svelte for something with a 5.2-inch screen and that screen is a very good example of the breed. The battery is usefully larger – to the tune of 400mAh – than that fitted to the Galaxy S4, and the camera is one of the best fitted to any Android smartphone. The stand-out feature, though, are those rear-mounted controls, which really do make this large handset much easier to use.

The G2 is LG's attempt to dethrone the Galaxy S4, or at least produce a handset that rivals it in every meaningful way. The company has definitely accomplished that goal. The G2 is tremendously powerful, has a battery that can easily last a full day even with extensive use, offers a brilliant new position for the power and volume rocker switches, and touts one of the nicest mobile displays we've ever seen.

From the spec sheet to the final product, it’s clear that the G2 is LG’s best effort yet. The company has gone all-out to pack the handset with brutally fast, top-end hardware alongside a strong suite of software features that rivals the Samsung Galaxy S4. At the end of the day, the LG G2 is serious competition to other high-end smartphones on the market, and its wide array of features make it a fine choice for nearly anyone’s needs.

The G2 can be purchased for Rs 40,000 (16 GB), and comes bundled with a complimentary QuickWindow Folio case. The 32 GB version will set you back by another 3000 rupees. The phone packs in an impressive display and a powerful processor. After a long time, LG has come up with a solid offering, and has also managed to outdo Samsung’s flagship phone, the GALAXY S4.

The 16GB version of the G2 is priced at Rs 41,500 while the 32GB sits at Rs 44,500. Of course, you can find them for cheaper online which makes the G2 one of the most value for money flagships in the market. The lack of expandable storage is possibly the only major downside to this phone but if you make your peace with it, the G2 has all the bases covered. It’s very well built, blazing fast, has a gorgeous screen, has more gestures and features than you’ll ever need and very good battery life. Between this and the Sony Xperia Z1, I’d pick the G2.

LG has truly surprised us. The G2 is undoubtedly worthy of the flagship tag. A gorgeous display that leaves the rivals far behind, form factor that makes all other 5-inch smartphones feel some bit of shame, camera that does very well in low light conditions and the big battery will last you almost two days on a single charge. Perhaps, the only niggle is the weird power and volume key placement, but that isn't something you cannot get used to.

T-Mobile has seriously beefed up its smartphone roster over the past year. The LG G2 now joins the likes of the Apple iPhone 5s, Samsung Galaxy S4 and HTC One (all $99 down), giving T-Mobile shoppers plenty of great options. The two best reasons to snatch up the G2 are its blazing Snapdragon 800 processor and long battery life.

The G2 is packed with the latest top-tier hardware, and it features a long-lasting battery and a perfectly capable camera. But it’s beset by small problems—the crowded notifications screen, the awkward rear-facing buttons, its plain-Jane design. It makes you remember that LG is still missing the je ne sais quoi that sets other top phones apart from their competitors.

The G2 took what I loved from the tablet-smartphone category, and crammed it into a regular smartphone. A big one, granted, but not an unnecessarily huge one. LG's smartphone screens are among the best, and its newest phone continues to lead its peers. This time around, however, it's got the battery to do it justice.

We can’t remember ever being particularly excited about an LG phone, but the G2 changed that when its specs were released, and to our great amazement the G2 is just as brilliant in the flesh as it is on paper.

If I had to boil it down, I would say that the LG G2 is excellent where it matters: super-responsive, amazing display, excellent battery life and very high photo quality. To me, these are the most important aspects of a smartphone, and the LG G2 hits a home run on everything that really matters. Beyond that, it is up to you to decide if the industrial design, graphic design, web services or carrier availability will work for you. If you end up choosing it, you would have made a damn fine choice.

Slimming mania. The review sample's big brother completely convinced us in the editorial office. Users who were looking forward to a comparable version with a dual-SIM feature will, however, be disappointed. The South Korean manufacturer has slimmed down the tech specs to such an extent that neither smartphone has much in common apart from the screen size and name.

Source: Tech2.in.com English
The LG G Pro Lite is priced at Rs 22,990, however you can find it online for under Rs 20,000. At this price, the Sony Xperia C or even the Samsung Galaxy Grand make a much better buy than the G Pro Lite. The reason for this is that LG went overboard with the reductions, leaving us with a very underpowered and dated handset. The phone only scores well in terms of battery life and decent camera performance but falls flat in practically every other department. There’s no ambient light sensor, very low resolution display considering panel size, no NFC or GLONASS, an out-dated processor, limited functionality with LG apps and the list goes on. We recommed giving this phone a pass even after a price drop as you’re better off with offerings from Sony and Samsung in this range.

LG G Flex

The first thing anyone would notice about the LG G Flex is the arc that runs from the top of the device to the bottom. It would be easy to think of this feature as a gimmick, but the design is intended to create a more immersive experience for media consumption, improve ergonomics and improve screen visibility under sunlight. Oddly enough the LG G Flex was built to withstand attempts to flatten out the curve. It's been reported that it can survive up to 88 pounds of pressure. For a device that will constantly be thrown in bags or sat on while in back pockets, this speaks well to its durability.

For those who despair at the need for additional casings and protective wrappings for their tech, LG have attempted to make the back of the case "self healing", a concept that is taken from the automotive industry. Light scratches will "heal" themselves when hydrogen in the coating swell up to undo damage. This is not meant to withstand serious stabs and slashes with sharp implements, but having this unprotected device rattling around in a bag with loose change and keys should do it no harm. With all these unique features to list, it's still impressive when it comes down to a bare bones comparison of specs with the powerful Snapdragon 800 processor and a battery that can match the best out there, but unfortunately, the screen leaves something to be desired. The 6 inch, 720p OLED display is bound to be lackluster in comparison to current devices. Overall the LG G Flex seems great, if the screen isn't a deal breaker.

Curved thing. The display of LG's first smartphone with a curved screen is certainly an eye-catcher, but just this key feature turns out to be the problem. The other features are on one level with the high-end competition: A fast Snapdragon 800, 32 GB storage and an Ultra HD camera as well as the self-healing case create an interesting package nonetheless.

Living on the cutting edge of technology doesn’t come cheap, especially if that technology is still in its nascent stages. The G Flex will cost you Rs 70,000 a pop and that’s a lot of money for a smartphone. As a ‘phablet’, the G Flex is easily amongst the best there is. It’s built very well and looks absolutely stunning, second to the Nokia Lumia 1520. And it’s not like LG compromised on the hardware as well since it’s every bit as powerful as the G2. Battery life is also one of its strong suits.

The LG G Flex has some decent hardware including a great camera and more storage than usual. Excellent software is also a lure but its main feature, the curved screen, is too big, only 720p and offers no real benefits.

The LG G Flex's closest rival Samsung's GALAXY Round comes with a horizontally curved screen. It lacks the self-healing tech and flexibility that's there on the G Flex. ore importantly, it's only available in Korea. However, just because there's no direct competition to G Flex doesn't mean that it's a good phone. We don't deny the fact that creating a flexible phone is an engineering achievement. But then, for consumers there's not even a single logical reason to buy this expensive handset. Those who prefer large screen phones should consider the GALAXY Note 2 and Nokia Lumia 1520.

The G Flex is just an LG G2 with a 6-inch P-OLED screen. Unless you really want a phone that flexes and has a curved display, there really isn’t a lot of benefit in buying the phone especially at its current retail price. However, LG should be duly credited for innovating with their form factor and materials. The G Flex might not make much sense right now, especially with the LG G2 around, but its innovations will surely start to trickle through more devices and soon rule the smartphone industry in the coming decade.

LG G Flex

There’s no doubt the LG G Flex is a unique smartphone. Not only does it have one of the largest displays on the market, but this phablet also has a curved form that really sets it apart. Overall, we were surprised at how comfortable the G Flex felt in the hand. And for a device that has such a large footprint, it didn’t feel any heavier than an average smartphone.

70% LG G Flex review The future of smartphones is here, but don't get too excited
Source: Techradar English
This biggest issue I have with the LG G Flex is the fact that it's impossible to recommend. A sky high price tag means the LG G Flex is immediately out of many people's price range and while the "flexible" nature of the phone is certainly interesting, in it's current form it's little more than a gimmick. Want a top of the line LG smartphone? Then buy the G2. Want a large screened handset? Then take a look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or Nokia Lumia 1520.

Finally, while I find the curved design to be very aesthetic and pleasing in general, I wouldn’t say that it makes a big difference in ergonomic terms, unless you have the G Flex in your back pocket, in which case it does matter. While it’s a great phone, and I’m happy to give it an 8/10 score for those who like big phones, I think that LG can improve the “plastic” feel a little by using a slightly different plastic. I would like to see a better camera as well, something like the LG G2 or better. Then it would get that much closer to perfection.

60% LG G Flex review

So many of the phones we review are exercises in dull, rote iteration that it feels a shame not to be able to give the LG G Flex a commendation. However, its screen issues, high price and interface issues mean we can’t. It isn’t harder to use than any other 6-inch phone, but such a large body is problematic too. The LG G2 costs half the price, and is in several respects the superior phone. LG deserves a pat on the back for having the stones to bring as unusual phone as this to market. But seriously consider the HTC One or the LG G2 unless having a huge, curvy screen is really what your heart wants most.

LG G Flex Review: trouble with the curve (AT&T)
Source: Mobileburn English
The LG G Flex is the phone you never knew you wanted. It's probably the phone you still don't want unless you're willing be adventurous. The large size and curved display make for some awkward encounters. That might be enough to scare most people away, especially when they learn that the G Flex isn't actually flexible. It can withstand pressure better than most, but it can only survive light bending. Don't put this in a back pocket and think it's impervious to body weight creating problems. I'd only recommend the LG G Flex to a very specific type of person. That person must love the idea of trying something new and not being immediately turned off by an out of character device. He or she must love the extra-large smartphone segment and not be picky about a resolution that doesn't take full advantage of that size. The camera is decent, the battery life is fantastic, and the unique form factor might provide some subtle benefits. The G Flex is a strange device and not one that most people will readily embrace. If you're willing to bend a little and try something new, the LG G Flex awaits.

Baby's got the bends: LG's D958 G Flex Android smartie
Source: Reg Hardware English
Other pluses are unusually large battery capacity and a feature-laden incarnation of Android that’s not as ugly or intrusive as Samsung’s alternative. This combination of features delivers what I reckon to be the best large mobile/phondleslab/phablet on the market. The self-repairing plastic casing seems less of a must-have feature even though it seems to work. Personally, I'd have thought a metal finish would look and feel more appropriate, especially given the price tag.

LG G Flex Review
Source: Droid-Life English
The G Flex is a good phone, but not one I would want to have for two years on contract. The display can be a real eye sore, the price is too high, the camera leaves a lot to be desired, and the software is old and dated. As an Android lover who is constantly looking for the perfect experience, this just isn’t it. With Samsung launching the Galaxy S5, HTC launching the successor to the One, and a possible successor to the G2 coming from LG, the G Flex is just too little, too late. The phone does have upsides though, with its self-healing back (I never got to test it since I don’t drop my phones), good performance, and gorgeous looks, but with a full lineup of devices coming in 2014 that are supposed to be awesome, this phone just can’t keep up with the hype.

70% AT&T LG G Flex review: Interesting display tech and excellent battery life
Source: Zdnet.com English
LG has greatly improved their smartphone devices and I look forward to what else they launch in 2014. The G Flex seems to be a technology test device with the unique display design and back material, but there are outdated specs (low resolution display, older camera technology, and an older OS on a device that is priced higher than most others on the market. I could understand if the G Flex was launched as an unlocked device, similar to what Sony has been doing for most of their Xperia line, or on a single carrier like AT&T or T-Mobile to show off their curved display. However, it is definitely not worth launching on three major carriers and I doubt it will sell to many consumers as we get into the new devices of 2014 launching in the next few months.

With its curved display and "self-healing" rear panel, the LG has broken the smartphone mold. The curvy handset gets points for its strong performance, long battery life and colorful display. However, while we like the G Flex's screen, other flagships offer a full 1080p HD display for the same price. We're also still not fans of the inconvenient Rear Key design.

The G Flex is an innovative smartphone that offers a colorful curved display, long-lasting battery and impressive performance.

However, the 720p resolution is a slight letdown, as is LG's decision to bring back its somewhat cumbersome Rear Key.

LG G Flex deep-dive review: The curious case of the curved phone
Source: Computerworld.com English
Back to my original question: Does "different" automatically mean "better"? In the case of the G Flex, the answer turns out to be no. The phone's curved and flexible body is a noteworthy feat of engineering but not terribly meaningful in terms of actual real-world value, especially when coupled with the phone's dismal display. The G Flex does offer excellent performance and outstanding battery life, but with all of the caveats that accompany those traits -- and all of the more well rounded smartphones available within the same price range -- it's difficult to recommend this device as a sensible purchase for most people.

The G Flex is an Android flagship phone that desperately wants your attention. And this device grabs it with a unique curved screen and "self- healing" back. But while LG has certainly innovated in the design department, you still have to deal with the cumbersome Rear Key placement. If you put the special features aside, you're left with a device that offers a beautiful (albeit lower-res) display, strong performance, solid battery life and a sharp camera.

LG G Flex AT&T Review
Source: Slashgear English
While we're not entirely convinced this device really needs a curve, the rest of the device is fine enough to be worth the cash it costs. We'd certainly rather have a 1080p display as long as we're working with 6-inches of screen, but as it is with all modern devices, if you've never had 1080p in your hand before, you might never notice the difference. Again we'd like to encourage you to go into the store to see about the display, especially because of the speckle effect mentioned above, but also to see if the curve is worth your time. In the end, we'd rather have the LG G2 over this device, with the only discernible positives here over that hero device being in the holding of the machine - it truly feels like you've got something special in your hands when you hold the LG G Flex horizontally, playing a high-quality video for yourself.

LG G Flex Review
Source: Androidcommunity.com English
If LG was trying to re-imagine the form factor of a smartphone, they’ve done as much. I don’t think we can consider the current G Flex successful, though. The screen is lacking punch, and the curvature didn’t seem to fit anywhere in life comfortably. On a flat surface, it’s announcing its curve. In a pocket, it’s bulkier than we want. In the front pocket of a laptop sleeve? Same thing. Comfy to hold, but it creates more negative space when not in use than a normal phone would. If it had a more pixel-dense screen and a more subtle curve, we’d probably like this one quite a bit. We still like it, but more because it’s novel, not because it’s a great smartphone. With a second iteration, this could be one you’re seeking out more for its utility than its curiosity.

LG G Flex review: Hands-on
Source: T3 English
Could curved smartphones be the future or are they just a gimmick? We were certainly impressed with the G Flex at first glance - it's much easier to see the advantage of the curved shape once you've actually got the phone in your hands, which is presumably why the maker is previewing the phone in selected EE shops before it's available to buy. With Samsung also set to introduce a curved handset - could this be the future of the smartphone? We'll just have to wait and see. Stay tuned for a full review.

The curved screen of the LG G Flex is certainly more than just a gimmick, but it's bound to come at a premium (LG has yet to announce UK pricing). As with all new technologies, it might still be a bit raw to tempt many to jump in early, but LG should be applauded for the engineering and design innovation at work here. It's the kind of phone makes us excited about phones again.

There’s a lot about the G Flex that’s brilliant, from the searing performance to the massive battery life and unusual, bottom-hugging styling. But that only makes the disappointments even more frustrating. Clearly it’s no dud, but neither is it revolutionary, particularly as there’s little genuine benefit to the curved design. It proves it can be done, though, and that opens the door to hopefully far more interesting and useful designs in the future. Give us back our Full HD, OIS and make it genuinely flexible, and we’ll be right at the front of the queue for the next Flex.

If you want an ultra large smartphone, you may want to consider giving the LG G Flex a look. I was most impressed with the performance and battery life, which I've mentioned countless times now, but that's really what sets smartphones apart now. You can have a brilliant display, great design and all, but if either performance or battery life are lacking, it's just not as appealing. At least the G Flex nails those last two.

With G Pro 2 Phablet, LG Knocks on Samsung’s Door
Source: Recode English
Compared to its predecessor, the G Pro 2 features a faster quad-core processor from Qualcomm and a larger battery. The smartphone performed smoothly, without any crippling lags or crashes. I didn’t run a formal battery test, but with moderate to heavy usage, I was able to go about a day and a half before needing to recharge the phone. LG has made some nice improvements to the G Pro 2 to make it a better smartphone. With competitive pricing, it can be a nice alternative to the Galaxy Note 3.

Bottom line here, the LG G Pro 2 appears to be an all around solid performer and it held up well in our day to day use. The display was solid, and battery life proved nothing to worry about. Not to mention the overall build quality -- which was more than acceptable. We also especially liked the camera, and the camera options. Plus, in a world where many Android users are looking to get a clean and stock experience, we are more than willing to ditch the stock experience in favor of the perks offered by LG. We still need some more details in terms of a US release. Namely, a date, some pricing and carrier specifics. But if nothing else, we do feel the LG G Pro 2 should be a handset to consider once it comes available.

LG has taken a great device in the LG G2 and has blown it up to a much larger size in the LG G Pro 2. Again, this isn’t so much a follow-up to last year’s LG G Pro, but a compliment to the LG G2 instead. Working with one of the finest processors on the market and a display that’s both sharp and bright in essentially any environment, there’s little to dislike about this handset.

But while the original G Pro was clearly advantaged by its newer hardware when compared to the Galaxy Note 2, the G Pro 2 is running neck to neck with the Galaxy Note 3 instead, so the choice isn’t as obvious.
