LG recently released it’s flexible smartphone, the LG G Flex. This can be said as an intelligent move against the likes of Samsung who previously released the Samsung Galaxy Round. Although both are similar on paper, named solely as flexible smartphones, when take an in depth look, both are very different from every angle.
LG G Flex
LG G Flex is a huge smartphone, a phablet as we call it like the Galaxy Note series and Mega series. The G Flex is as big as the Mega 6.3, having a 6 inch P-OLED display, which a slightly lower resolution of 1280×720 and ppi of 245 which is nothing compared to the Galaxy Round which has a 1080P display with 350+ ppi and it’s smaller having 5.7 inches to it’s name. The display is good enough although it could’ve been better, but as it’s the first flexible smartphone from LG, the G Flex is good.
Display is fantastic, but what about the hardware. Looking at the hardware, we have the same Snapdragon 800 SoC found on most phones these days which is clocked at 2.26GHz which is more than enough to power you daily tasks and multimedia including gaming. It’s helped along with 2GB of RAM. The Galaxy Round has an advantage over G Flex here, it’s clocked at 2.3GHz and having 3GB of RAM, it’s more powerful. There’s an internal storage of 32GB with no expansion available to the user. The G Flex runs on Android 4.2.2 which can be upgraded later. Powering the device is a 3500mAh battery, which will last your phone for normal usage for a day or two but a day with heavy usage.

Having a good camera is the primary need for most phones these days and G Flex doesn’t fall behind. The G Flex comes with a 13 Megapixel snapper like the G2 and can record 1080P videos at 60fps. The G2 surprised us in terms of camera performance and we hope the G Flex does the same too.
