Sprint LG G Flex Receiving Update, Brings Voice Over WiFi Capability and Bug Fixes

An update is headed to the G Flex from LG on Sprint’s network, bringing a big feature for non-fans of wireless plans with minutes. G Flex owners will be able to place Voice over WiFi (VoWiFi) calls, which is essentially just VoIP, but with a WiFi connection and not wireless data.

In addition, the update includes a new HD Voice icon, a Google SMS and Security patch, plus an “Update email Signature” feature. No exact clue to what that means, but it’s probably for the pre-installed email client.

Take a peek at the changelog from Sprint below.  (more…)

LG Bringing KnockCode to More LG Phones Via Future Firmware Update

Ever since it was introduced with the LG G2, the KnockOn tap-to-wake software that LG patented has been a major focal point of its OEM software. LG even improved its own design by announcing KnockCode alongside the G Pro 2, which will launch later this year. Apparently, demand was so high for creating a personalized knocking pattern to unlock your device that LG is bringing it to more of their older devices.  (more…)

This LG G Flex Commercial is on a New Level of Awesome.

I’m mostly speechless after watching this new ad for the LG G Flex, but in a fantastic way. It is so completely, 100%, can’t-be-argued, brilliant on a number of levels.

Talking bearded hands that can be fed cheesecake while attacking you with a crab claw? That awkward moment where you take your sexual conversation over garlic too far, resulting in a kitchen counter hump session? “Wolverine, like a BAAWSS.”

Yes to all of it. Do more of this LG, do more.

Yah-ka-ka-kai!  (more…)

LG G Flex Review

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.
