LG G Flex Review

G Flex

The hype train is always fully fueled when it comes to new phones, and with a new year beginning, the hype is bigger than ever. LG announced the G Flex  late last year right after Samsung announced the Galaxy Round, a device which we thought looked like a complete abomination. The G Flex however is curved the correct way, supposedly allowing for a perfect fit on your face (or butt), while still delivering a phablet experience for those who enjoy large phones. It was initially introduced for international markets, but has now come to the U.S. for 2014.

We had hands-on with the G Flex at CES, but now that we have had one in our own possession for about a week, we can give a detailed opinion this monster of a device. Is the curved display just a fad? Are back buttons here to stay? Is 720p a viable option for a device with a 6″ display in 2014? Let’s find out together.

This is Droid Life’s review of the LG G Flex. 

The Good

Specs

The G Flex ships with a very handsome list of specs. Powering the device is a quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM, a processor that was the top tier silicon in 2013. Also inside the device is a 3,500mAh battery, a 13MP rear-facing camera, NFC, Bluetooth 4.0, 32GB of internal storage, a 2.1MP front-facing camera, self-healing backside, and 4G LTE radios. The biggest spec on the sheet is the device’s 6″ P-OLED curved display with a resolution of 720 x 1280. Yup, it’s only HD and not Full HD, which is sort of a bummer. All of this adds up to a device that runs very well, lasts a full day and a half on its big battery, and can impress the neighbors with its curved display. All in all, it’s a very nice package of a phone.

Design

In my opinion, the look of the device is right up there with any other sexy phone to come out recently. It’s subtle, but when up close and in your hand, the device packs a serious aesthetic punch. Upon first turning it on, you almost feel completely immersed in the 6″ curved display. And even though the display is massive, the curve really helps to handle the phone with one hand if need be. Just like the G2, the G Flex features control keys on the backside and none on the sides of the device. Since I have played with a G2 plenty of times, I am quite used to this setup and actually find it quite enjoyable. Because the phone is so large, and the way your hand must grip the phone, your index fingers lines up perfectly on the backside to control volume and power the screen on. To sum up the design, I love the curved aspect to it and in no way do I find the looks to be “gimmicky” or a fad.

Battery

Besides the gorgeous overall design of this phone, the battery on the G Flex is ridiculous. Out of habit, I always hook up my devices next to my bed to let them charge, but I was easily skipping nights of charging with the G Flex. It could be thanks to the 720p display or its massive size at 3,500mAh, but either way, we love long battery life.

Speaker

For only having a single speaker, we have to give LG props to what they threw into this phone. It’s loud. Sure, it’s not front-facing HTC BoomSound loud, but it still packs a decent punch for being on a smartphone. Compared to the Nexus 5 or the Moto X where the speakers are pretty weak, it’s been a nice change. As someone who enjoys walking around the house and listening to tunes streaming from my phone, I give it a solid B+.

Performance

Thanks to LG’s inclusion of a Snapdragon 800 processor and 2GB of RAM, the G Flex flies. While multitasking and editing photos with Snapseed, the G Flex doesn’t let up. Unlike other devices that feature a Snapdragon 800 (hint hint Galaxy Note 3), LG’s skin doesn’t slow down the device’s opening of the camera app, whipping through homescreen’s, playing processor-intense games, or browsing the web. I mostly judge performance on whether a device can handle my top favorite games. Those games include Assassins Creed Pirates, Deus Ex: The Fall, and Sonic the Hedgehog. The phone had no issue playing these games, so I was a happy gamer. For those hoping to see benchmarks and a full technical breakdown of the quad-core CPU’s performance, you will have to look elsewhere.

Availability and Connectivity

So far, three of the four major carriers in the US have announced availability of the G Flex, with those three being T-Mobile, Sprint, and AT&T. No word on if we could see the G Flex hit Verizon’s 4G LTE network, but it would surprise us at this point. On each of the three carriers listed the device runs a whopping $299.99 on contract or buyers can choose to sign up for a monthly payment plan. Those plans usually have you paying around $25 to $35 a month. The variant we have is on AT&T, and so far, there has been no connectivity problems and calls have been crystal clear.

G Flex backside

Self-healing Backside

LG introduced a self-healing back on the G Flex, a feature which gained quite a bit of attention after MKBHD posted a video on his channel testing it. I myself wasn’t able to test it since this is a review unit and you shouldn’t attempt to damage the phone, but if your backside ever gets lightly scratched or scuffed, the material should actually heal itself and hide any blemishes the phone picks up. Scratches from keys and other objects should be able to come right out, and for anyone who usually ends up scratching their phones often, then this should be labeled as a miracle. We hope they continue with this feature addition moving forward with newer phones.

Somewhere in the Middle

Size

While a certain group of folks will stand by he bigger the phone the better,” there are still plenty of those who will write off the G Flex immediately due to its massive size. The G Flex, thanks to its curve, actually feels quite nice in hand and is pretty manageable with just one hand. Although, if you really need to get things done, two hands would be best. If the device’s display wasn’t curved, I’d be quite turned off by it, since reaching up the notification bar while holding the phone with one hand would be quite the challenge. It still has somewhat of an issue when coming in and out of the pockets, but that’s something you just get used to after time.

Display

Over the course of my week with the phone, I have had a serious love/hate relationship with the display. At times I love the curved aspect of it, and at others, I can’t stand viewing the lower resolution when compared to the Nexus 5 and Galaxy Note 3. Due to its lower resolution, wallpapers get blown up on homescreens, pictures look funky, and the 6″ size makes it so pixels are quite viewable. What the display does have going for it are the viewing angles. You can hold this phone sideways across from your face and still see what’s going on while it is completely tipped, which is a major plus. And since it’s curved, multiple people sitting at different angles can all watch the same YouTube video at the same time with no issue, which I did a few times while at a local Red Robbin. Yum. People seem to really like the curved aspect of the display, but if only the device was a tad smaller, it’d be perfect.

G Flex displays

Price

As mentioned in the availability section, the device is priced at $299.99 on a new two year agreement. For me, this is unjustifiable. As I touch on right below this, the camera doesn’t live up to such a high price tag, and neither does a 720p display; I don’t care much they curve it. It is much more of a $199.99 on contract device, given it doesn’t even come with a ton of proprietary software like the Galaxy Note 3 does. And yes, we do talk down a lot on the TouchWiz bloat, but at least it adds a type of value, right? If you think paying $300 on contract for a device that features standard 2013 flagship specs, with its one major highlight being the curved HD display, then go for it. My recommendation would be to wait for the price to come down to the $249.99 or $199.99 range. And after a few months of it being on the market, it will happen.

Camera

When first opening the box of the G Flex, I was reminded how much I was looking forward to using the device’s camera, since it uses a beefed up 13MP sensor. And if you know much about the LG G2, you will know that it has unarguably one of the best cameras to ever launch with an Android phone. To my disappointment, the G Flex is nothing like the G2 – yes, it is 13MP, but the camera does not feature OIS (optical image stabilization), and for some reason, it just takes really lackluster shots. There is no color. There is no vibrance. While in the right lighting conditions, you will have no issues taking a good shot to share with friends and family on your social networks, but if you were hoping for the same experience as you find on the G2, you will need to look elsewhere. The software on both devices is the exact same, but LG definitely doesn’t seem to have put in as much work as they did on the G2.

Here are some camera samples. All have been resized and that’s it.

The Not-so-Good

Screen Ghosting

Since the curved and large display is the G Flex’s main selling point, and it’s the part of the phone you look at all day every day, it’s a shame that the G Flex has a rather alarming ghosting issue. With most ghosting issues in monitors and displays, the brightness setting will be your best friend. The symptoms of ghosting can be counteracted by setting the brightness on the display to a higher setting, but I actually like to keep my screens quite dark. With the G Flex, which I kept on a low brightness setting throughout most days, I was always shaking my head while still seeing my homescreen widget’s outlines while in other apps. Another time it was very apparent when after typing out a text message and then going back to the home screen, the outline of the keyboard was still on my screen. I’m not very technical about refresh rates and the ghosting issues that monitors and displays can have, but I felt the need to address this since it’s something I have never encountered at such a level on a smartphone. I recorded a video and placed it below to try and show what exactly I’m talking about.

Launching with Android 4.2

Oh, I’m sorry, I thought this was 2014. That’s my bad! When a new flagship device launches, you usually expect them to be running the latest version of the Android OS (Android 4.4, Kit Kat) or at least, be running the second to latest version (Android 4.3, Jelly Bean). Instead, the G Flex comes out of the box running Android 4.2.2, which in my book, is a surprise and a complete no-no. With a company like LG, who isn’t exactly known for pumping out updates to devices (G2 still doesn’t have Kit Kat), this is bad news. With no word from LG on when we can expect to see an update to either 4.3 or 4.4, it’s hard for an Android lover to get excited about running this device.

LG’s Custom Skin

While the inclusion of a semi-transparent notification bar and navigation button area are bonuses, those two sexy touches can’t help bring LG’s custom skin to a tolerable level. It is much like Samsung’s TouchWiz, but to continue harping on the fact that it’s only running Android 4.2, there are a lot of things that LG could do to simplify the layout. Menus and settings are at times confusing, plus a few features like QSlide are hidden with the average user not knowing how to access it. It will be interesting to see if OEMs start toning down the skins after Samsung and Google work out whatever deal it is they are working on.

Random Negatives

  • Music bug – Whenever listing to music on Google Play Music, you can bet money that at some point within the first 10 minutes, the app will all of a sudden stop working. I don’t know exactly why the app cuts out, but it’s quite annoying when you have to pull out your phone, reopen the app, and press play again.
  • No microSD slot – For anyone who cares about extra storage, you won’t have any here.
  • Holy bloatware, Batman! – The G Flex comes preloaded with 20 (twenty) AT&T bloatware apps. Luckily, all can be disabled if you so choose.
  • LG’s keyboard – Once you get a G Flex, head to Google Play and pick up a third party keyboard. The stock keyboard is one of the more frustrating experiences I have ever dealt with. After two days, I was done with it. The fact that once you select a word to be inputted through swiping then can’t delete the whole word and have to individually delete the word letter by letter is painful. Google’s stock keyboard or SwiftKey will be your best friend.
  • Fingerprint magnet – The backside of the G Flex will have fingerprints on it immediately and will continue to rack them up. Yes, you can wipe them off whenever you want, but they’ll just come back. Another weird thing is that the G Flex seems to be a dust and lint magnet. Whenever you pull it out of your pocket there is always dust stuck on it. Anyone with OCD should prepare themselves.

The Verdict

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.

  • Noure

    As we know LG is an ancient community in phones field and smartphones as well. recently, it announced a new phone coming out
    with price and date release, this new phone is almost awesome
    smartphone either on the one hand of specifications or design. There
    rumors that this new LG phone will be the best Sprint phone after the HTC ONE MAX in 2014. At any rate, this is none of our business. http://www.new-phones-coming-out.net/2014/01/New-Sprint-Phones-Coming-Out-in-2014.html

  • Ed Starkey

    I love the Flex!! I usually get my wife and I the same phone, but I had to get her a G2 because there is no way she could handle it. Is the display of the G2 better? Sure is, but this isn’t horrible. I think the curved display gives a whole new dimension to viewing videos that’s for sure! We have HD Voice on Sprint in my area and they call quality is so good (between two HD Sprint phones) it blows away my landline!

  • C-Law

    Moto x speaker weak? What!?

    These are impressive articles. Keep up the noble
    be successful.

  • Juan Collins

    As an HTC One owner I can say loudness and clarity aren’t one and the same. Putting phones facedown to listen to anything is so 2012. The Moto X definitely blows away a lot of phones in terms of loudness but it doesn’t even belong in any comparison to the HTC One in terms of sound. Outside of using 720p screens the Moto X is a beast of a phone. But if anyone thinks that the sound on a Moto X even compares to HTC Boomsound you’re grasping at straws trying to compare the Moto X to a phone it can’t really compete with. It’s the best 720p dual-core phone no doubt. For most of us the Moto X is either a high end mid-level phone or a low end premium phone. Both the Moto X and the LG Flex get a big thumbs down for simply putting too much old tech into their phones when newer hardware and software was available. I don’t have a bias towards any particular brand but with Google acquiring Motorola for the short time it did it was a disappointment that the Moto X got blew away by the LG Nexus 5 which is the phone it should have been compared to.

  • Anonymous458

    What clock widget is that in the first picture? I’ve seen it on all the videos of Droid Life on their YouTube channel but can’t find what it is.

    • Patmw123

      Timely.

  • Duuuuuuuh

    Take note motorolla and Google this is how you balance a phone, low resolution screen and older version of Android makes it up with other top tier specs!

  • Sha Shahin
  • Diablo81588

    It’s called image retention, not ghosting.Ghosting is a side effect of LCD displays where the image lags behind during motion. Of course, newer LCDs don’t really have that problem anymore.

    • Eric W

      Good review. I’m selling my G2 and keeping my Flex. I have not seen the gohsting and don’t mind the 720p screen because the battery life is crazy good. Plus I love the design.

  • usaff22

    What’s the wallpaper in the 10:36 tip down photo?

  • Rob Schoenfeld

    Interesting device for someone who wants something different.

  • gpaine

    I feel like LG shoved this out sloppy as almost a test device. I think they wanted to see if there was demand for features like a self healing back and a curved display. Tim said it himself, there’s significant drawbacks; it’s essentially a reworked G2 in so many ways. I think LG uses feedback from the G2 and Flex and makes a pretty insane flagship for this summer sometime.

  • http://brgulker.wordpress.com/ brgulker

    Curved display, 720p on a screen that huge, and Android 4.2 = I LOL’d.

    Curved displays are a huge gimmick.

  • Robzw

    Most LG phones cut out in Google play music I noticed when u owned the LG optimus Exceed

  • enloquecido

    Curved the “correct way”?! Sorry, not in my opinion. How can the “correct” curve be for taking calls when that’s only about 2% of what I use my phone for. And I certainly don’t intend to put it in my back pocket and sit on it. It’s cool or whatever but not what I’m after. I’ll take the Round before the Flex, feels much better holding it the other 98% of the time.

    • chris_johns

      lollll

  • Ken

    What battery manager are they using?

  • Daeshaun Griffiths

    I forgot it healed itself, that will go far. I read G Flex and only think it bends.The back buttons are nice. I didn’t like the appearance but hey it works. Interesting first try.

  • Droid Ronin

    What clock widget is that?

    • stabone

      Timely

  • Droid Ronin

    I was never a fan of that Optimus UI (except for the lockscreen) on LG’s phones. It looks like a TouchWiz wannabe. I hope LG updates it to a more cleaner look with KitKat (assuming that it does get the upgrade).

  • Manbearpig

    I am using a flex and i can say that the ghosting happens at all brightness levels. I have im up to 90 and every time you switch task you can still see a faint impression you can really tell by going from a white screen to a mostly darker screen. I thouhgt i was the only one it drives me crazy

    • ANON

      There is a update in the works to change voltage. This will come very soon within a month and will fix this issue. OLED is a brand new technology so needs to have the wrinkles ironed out.

      • Manbearpig

        Next year’s version with a 1080 on it will be nice

  • WK

    i keep reading on DL mentioning that the LG G2 has one of the best cameras ever on an Android phone. i have a Verizon LG G2 and i just don’t get this statement. in what way is it one of the best? the camera is slow to focus, the pics taken are not as sharp compared to an S4 or even HTC One), the OIS is practically non-working (it might as well not even be there), lots of noise when taking pics in dark environments (of course this is given for all cameras, but this happens even when its not really all that dark). the only time its great is in bright light. actually, even then its not that great because the images just aren’t that sharp in general. there are lots of threads on these issues as well. i had to flash a modded cam just to make it work better. i had a GNEX prior to this and the quality of the pics taken on the G2 are only slightly better than the GNEX.

    • John Legere

      You can’t be serious. Either you’re not doing it right, the phone is bad, or you’re troll baiting.

      • WK

        not trolling. i really don’t get why ppl are saying the camera is so good. my sister has the same phone. my friend also. they both say its just ok at best. if i am not doing it right, i really want to know how to do it right. OIS just doesn’t work, like it wasn’t even implemented. if my hands shake even slightly, the pic will come out blurry. not super blurry but its noticeable. if i prop my arms up on something stable and then take a pic, i will notice the difference right away. this happens every time. the pics are taken in a well lit room, not super bright, and i’ve taken many pics. i literally have to keep really still if i don’t want my pics to blur. isn’t OIS supposed to correct this kind of issue? i’m really surprised ppl don’t notice this. enlighten me if i’m wrong.

        • John Legere

          Must be all bad devices. The G2 has proven to kick the crap out of every other smart phone.

          If you don’t like it, thats okay. Everyone has opinions.

          • WK

            oh i like the G2. i like it very much. and i know it does very well stacked up against other high end phones. its just the camera that is not good. and i don’t see why so many people are saying it has one of the best cameras in an android phone. the camera is decent at best.

        • Rango

          This is why I chose the nexus 5 instead of G2. Nexus 5 has a HDR+ mode – which now how to exploit OIS. HDR+ photos are much sharper and with much less noise than g2 pictures in low light conditions. Fewer pixels, but better software – or HDR+. Check hdr+ images on Google plus, and you will see deference…

    • Brian Ward

      Seriously, I get a new phone every couple months and have pretty much tried them all. On Android, the LG G2 is tops.

    • Jay Ochs

      no, you’re right. the camera is NOT one of the best in a phone. i mean hell, my S4 takes better pictures with more vibrant color, clarity and detail than the G2. The G2 suffers from over-noise compensation on the photos, which makes everything super soft and blurry. Forget using the flash on the G2 when anything is in any close proximity to you; it’ll over expose everything and just take a picture of a big white blob. The videos are god awful, as it has the breathing issue, and the over-noise compensation in videos as well, making everything blurry and nothing looks HD. On top of that, the audio in the videos is terrible.

      The G2 camera isn’t anything special at all, and I still don’t understand how every reviewer claimed it was “the best.” I love my G2 because of it’s battery life, that nice screen, no lag, and the rear buttons…but the camera is incredibly underwhelming.

      • WK

        agreed. you put it more eloquently than i could. there are lots of issues with the camera. there’s a modded camera that fixes the video breathing issue and it improves pictures a bit but i still would not consider it one of the best cameras at all. not by a long shot.

  • RoadsterHD1

    Ghosting? No thanks……

  • Cory_S

    Being the screen is plastic, and not glass I assume it is going to scratch like crazy.

  • Mark2134

    The X speaker is probably the best I’ve had or heard. Not trying to focus on just that one part of the review but….

    • Matthew DiGiacomo

      Guess you haven’t tried an HTC One..

      • Mark2134

        I have a One. Since it’s not my daily I’ll be honest I don’t use it for much so it’s probably not a fair assessment on my part. Should’ve said “one of the best” ;)

    • Patrick Smithopolis

      The statement he made about the speaker is baffling. The bass on the Moto X is kind of weak but it’s one of the loudest speakers on the market. It’s right up there with the HTC One.

    • reyalP

      The HTC on has Boom “Shakalaka” sound though!

    • chris_johns

      I agree with this…except during speaker phone…ill never understand the difference i play a song im scared ill blow out the speaker its so loud n nice…but speakerphone…i can barely hear the person.. w t f

  • mjmedstarved

    TIM! – Can you do a 4K test out the same window…. but with the phone completely stationary?! Curious how clear it can look without the hand wobble!

  • http://idle0095.com/ IDLE0095

    Reminds me of the plasma tv days with ghosting.

  • jim

    doesn’t sounds like its even close to a Note 3

  • Zain Kalwani

    What’s the wallpaper?

  • YankInDaSouth

    Damn, the moto x speaker is considered weak? It blew me away coming from the Note 3!

  • EricMayBell

    The Moto X has a weak speaker?? It’s the loudest I’ve ever heard on a phone. When you put it on a table its loader than my laptop

    • DigitalDK

      Seriously! My Moto X speaker is awesome, I was flabbergasted when he said it was weak. Mine is on par with boom sound when compared against my friends.

    • YankInDaSouth

      Same here! The speaker, and audio quality in general, blew me away (as I stated below :-P )

    • Weber

      I completely agree…

    • BK

      Once I read that, I scrolled immediately to the comments to see if anyone else thought it was weird. Glad I’m not the only one who has no complaints about that aspect of MotoX.

      • Razma

        I didn’t even finish the review, i immediately scrolled down here to comment

        • C-Law

          I did too! The speaker on my moto x is so much louder than any other phone speaker I’ve heard

    • Daeshaun Griffiths

      It was a typo

    • Hothfox

      Yeah, I actually had to turn it down yesterday while using Navigation. The shouting lady was starting to get obnoxious!

    • New_Guy

      I work for a wireless company and sometimes have to turn the speaker down when demoing my Moto X because it’s that loud. Definitely a weird comment.

    • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

      Just my opinion. I think it’s quiet in comparison to other devices on the market. I’m happy you like it though.

      • Patrick Smithopolis

        I don’t think it’s an opinion based on facts. The speaker can get just as loud if not louder than the HTC One when you put it down on its back.

        • http://www.droid-life.com/ Tim-o-tato

          If you feel as if the Moto X speaker is loud, then that’s good! Out of the many Moto X devices I have had in my hands, I don’t think it’s that loud.

    • Ryan

      Guys this is an opinion. Every one is entitled to their own. This just shows how different people and their choices are.

      • C-Law

        It’s not an opinion! It’s a lie. Test the loudness on these phones. Moto x will be at the top

    • Radgatt

      Exactly

    • chris_johns

      Im going to respond the same way…I agree with this…except during speaker phone…ill never understand the difference i play a song im scared ill blow out the speaker its so loud n nice…but speakerphone…i can barely hear the person.. w t f
      in case someone knows something i dont know to fix this

    • Razma

      I was literally about to post the same thing, guess Im not alone. compared to my Gnex, the Moto X speaker is like having a foghorn

  • Disqus_n00b

    Ghosting is a type of value, right?

  • Alex Boro

    Kill that hype.

  • Chewy789

    But will it blend? That is the question.

    • Nexoduss

      Yes, but it will self-heal itself.

    • Kevin

      I’ve always wanted to see that guy try to blend an HTC One. I think he was scared.

      • MikeKorby

        I have always wanted to see him find a way to blend a blend-tec blender…

  • matt0815

    “…and is pretty manageable with just one hand.”

    sorry, but are you kidding me? How can you reach the notification bar with one hand on such a huge display?

      A lot of people have big hands.

      Nova launcher with the notifications attached to a downward swipe gesture anywhere on the home screens puts the notification bar in easy reach. If the phone is really to big for you, you can also install floating navigation buttons and put them wherever you want. It’s Android, if there is a will, there is a way! :D

      Right there with ya. This device is not for us

      You can put a button on the button that pulls the notification bar down.

      LGs interface actually let’s you put a notification drawer button in the navigation bar. Right next to home and menu.

    Don’t hold your breath waiting for 4.4….They didn’t update the G Pro, or the G2

          But it doesn’t have to go through AT&T in Korea…

            Blame carriers then. Not LG. It will arrive, until then, 4.2.2 is perfect for me.

    The only thing this phone has going for it is the transparent dicks. Sorry, couldn’t resist.

    No ghosting on my T-Mobile G Flex :)

  • John Legere

    That ghosting may be a bad device. I had it once on the G2, switched it out and perfect ever since.

    Sounds like a great device, though. Not sure why they left out key features, but it’s understandable since it isn’t competing with anything.
