LG G Flex 2 Hands-On

by birtanpublished on May 22, 2021

Hey everyone is david with android police and we're at CES 2015 and we are taking a look at the G flex 2 this is obviously the second iteration of LG's slightly flexible but curved I guess you would say well I'm not sure we call correction first am so i made the taco phone LG made the one that was curved the other way so the g flex to the biggest upgrades are in the screen and i would say the chipset so we've got a snapdragon 810 chipset here this is the first phone i believe in ounce with the chipset knife it's probably the first one demos as well now the Snapdragon 810 chipset as you may well be aware is a

64-bit chip but the difference is it's not using Qualcomm's crate cores it's using arm reference designs as far as speed the phone does feel pretty quick but we're on pre-release software here so it's hard to say how fast it will actually be in reality once comes out there in the wild so I don't want to comment too much on that the cameras seen a big upgrade as well we've got the laser autofocus from the g3 here which is one of my favorite features of g3 the same 13 megapixel sensor a dual LED flash and LG's got some new feature in here which I'm not going to demonstrate

In this video we're if you put the phone up and you point the front-facing camera toward your face and wave at it on a night launches camera and front facing boat so you can take a selfie in this countdown timer and then when you bring the phone back down to look at it it automatically previews the image you just took which if you take a lot of selfies could actually be a pretty cool thing this as you may be able to tell by the navigation buns down here is running Android 5.0 this is one of the first phones we seem to launch an android 5.0 that's really cool it's still definitely

LG software layer in here if you look at like the settings menu and stuff it looks like LG stuff whether or not you like that it's comes down to personal preference another thing LG showed us that they don't really talk about too much but we took a look there are now Android wear mini apps for stocking LG apps on the phone so you can see you've got activities for LG healthier started bike ride to start a run which brings you gives you a little you I on your we're device to show you how fast you're going how long you've been doing it and stuff it's pretty neat

Actually you can also take a note with the quick memo app on the LG phone which really isn't that impressive when it comes down to it but the the health stuff is neat if you use LG's help out we're not seeing anything else yet but I think based on the presentation we saw there will be more system apps to get where many apps from the G flex 2 and probably all all LG phones from here on out the other things are they demonstrated I'm going to turn the screen off and try it here if I can get it to go it's a bit buggy so you can see the preview panel there you just swipe

Down while the screen is off and you can see the time and you can see your notification icons and stuff I forget what they call it I think quick glance so you have knock-on and then you have that which is neat I don't know if it's still quite as good as a Motorola's active display I just doesn't seem quite as useful and the plugging the center right now obviously is influencing me a little bit but yeah that is the software on the g2 in a nutshell hardware wise they have these the self-healing back has made a return they called it the advanced self-healing back now it heals

Up to 70 times faster I believe within three seconds for small scratches which is pretty incredible we scratched ours a little too hard so that they can quite heal unfortunately but the the idea is very cool unfortunately I'm still finding the self-healing back like on the original deflects as a total dust magnet it's really really dusty even just trying to wipe it off you just get more touched on the screen has been upgraded to a 1080p p OLED panel it's a plastic OLED that's really the only upgrade on screen it is also been reduced in size the original deflects

Was a six inch display they probably sound at 5.5 inches which is the same size as the three that's really interesting I think that's probably the first time I've seen a manufacturer actually decrease the size of a subsequent phone we're just kind of nice it makes it easier to hold not I like 5.5 inches dr. it feels pretty good other than that you know we're just talking first impressions here we have been a camera test or anything there's going to be quick charge technology in this similar speed to the turbocharger on motor oil

Devices and Samsung Note 4 and obviously you still got LG's for your buttons here which love them or hate them they're there and yeah that is what we're hearing about G flex shoes so far we don't know anything about pricing or availability in the US or really anywhere else yet you can assume it'll probably be more expensive than g3 but that's probably a given because of this advanced display technology and the curved battery and all that and lacking before we stop here we just go ahead and peel off the rear cover as you can see what's underneath here you can see that

The batteries actually sealed off but you can put in an SD card and your sim card in the back here I'm not sure why they didn't go with some kind of being a little slot on the top removal back you know decreases the rigidity but yeah that's how that's how it works and that is the G flex 2
