LG has studied the wrong moves with the LG flex and now seems to have corrected it's mistakes on the new LG G flex 2. With the other manufacturers waiting to release their 2015 flagships, LG seems to have done it's homework properly to give rivals a run for their money. Let us dis us the device in detail.-
Design With 149 x 75 x 9.4 mm dimensions, it is smaller and thinner than the predecessor. It is quite easier to handle.
The back cover coat is said to be "self healing" meaning if you happen to have a few dents it will get back to its original state. The device is available in two color options- Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red.
Screen Screen size has been reduced from 6 inches to 5.5 inches and the resolution has been improved to 1080p from the earlier 720p. LG has stated that the gorilla glass protection has been made 20 % stronger with the in-house chemical treatment. The P-OLED (Plastic OLED) display provides durability.
Software The phone comes with Android lollipop 5.0.1 out of the box along with LG's Optimus UI. It has Glance view which helps you check time and notifications without having to unlock the phone. Gesture controls have been introduced for selfie snapping. Dual window screen feature – akin to Samsung's Multiview enables you to run two mini apps simultaneously on one screen for multitasking.
Performance It is powered by 64 Bit Octacore Snapdragon 810 processor at 2.0 GHz coupled with 2 or 3 GB RAM ( for 16 and 32 GB version respectively). The device has Adreno 430 GPU for rendering rich graphics. On the connectivity front, it has LTE, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, WiFi and USB 2.0 support.
Switching between front and rear camera is a bit slower. There are occasional glitches in the interface.
Camera The device sports a 13 MP rear camera which has support for 120fps slow motion and HDR recording. Shutter speed is a bit slow. Picture quality is quite true to life. Front camera measures 2.1 MP.
BatteryThe phone comes with a 3000mAh battery which is non removable. It also supports fast charging. Even after a heavy use, it can easily make through a day.
My OpinionThe device is quite impressive and it would need a hawk's eye to find faults. LG seems to have listened to the feedback over its LG G Flex and made a lot of improvements.
Live....and Let Live!
