LG’s curved G Flex 2 is one of the first smartphones to be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 810 quad-core processor, complete with its 64-bit octa-core CPU clocked at 2-GHz for smooth game play and graphics rendering. It also comes equipped with a fast-charging 3,000mAh battery that can be recharged to 50% in just 40-minutes. Other specs include: 16GB-32GB of internal memory, 2GB – 3GB of RAM, microSD memory expansion, 13.0-megapixel rear camera, and a 2.1-megapixel front camera. According to CNet, “LG has integrated motion recognition that allows the camera to sense whenever it’s being lowered from on high by a stick or a raised arm. When it picks up on this movement, a preview of the last taken photo will immediately appear without the user having to manually check for him or herself.” Continue reading for another video, hands-on pictures and more information.
The Verge says, “The vertical curve is just one of many around this new phone, all of them designed to work in concert to make for a more comfortable and attractive device. That’s the area where I think LG is really starting to improve: it’s making better and more desirable phones and putting their physical properties to good use. The curve may always feel like something of a gimmick, but the G Flex 2 has a lot of other things going for it.”
