It's not mandatory to praise a device that hasn't been launched yet in the market. Here the talk is about LG G Flex which got launched in India,just yesterday. In fact, the handset is yet to go on sale in February next year, and depending upon the retail price the final verdict will be given.
LG's new curved display Android super smartphone - the G Flex. It's an extraordinary phone; sometimes you'll find that after Apple iPhone, God has created another marvel, the G Flex.
The buzz around LG Flex is justified, and the South Korean giant tried to make the experience immersive too. The 6-inch G Flex is the world's second phone to have curved display, and most likely the only working smartphone featuring self healing rear back panel.
In a press conference held in New Delhi, LG clarified that the G Flex will be made available in India in February next year. The retail price is yet to be decided, however, the company clarified the G Flex would be priced between Rs.60,000 to Rs.65,000.
GizBot got a chance to experience the device at the press meet, and shockingly came away with its impressive design and futuristic appeal. Take a first look!
Design and Display
LG's new innovative products - be it the world's first curved OLED T.V or the G Flex have one common factor between them-the rise of curve design. The new G Flex incorporates a 6-inch curved plastic OLED display instead of traditional glass made LCD panel.
The display is not just curved, but LG designed the device in such a way that it bends to some extent. Moreover, LG used a curved shaped battery (3,500mAh) fitted inside, thus making the phone bendable. Of course the phone is solidly built , thus making it the most durable phone to be made available soon.
LG says that watching movies on the curved display is far more superior to any normal flat screen phone.
It seems that LG must have been inspired by "old telephone set ", that's why the G Flex successively enhances voice quality by reducing the gap between the mic and your mouth.
We were amazed by the lustrous big 6-inch 720p display - it's massive but the same time you will surly fall in love with screen quality. LG says the 720p HD display worked better in the flexible display mode. The colors and viewing angles were great. The contrast ratio was far better than other high-end phones.
The phone is definitely huge, and its screen size is comparatively larger than Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Since the phone is bendable to some extent, you can easily slide the phone into pants pocket.
LG has also taken cues from its current flagship device - the G2, while designing the G Flex. You'll find the same rear-key concept placed on the back making the user experience phenomenally simple and user-friendly.
