    Default LG G Flex: Who would get one?

    I will admit, I am interested to see what it's like.

    I know I won't be getting one, simply because I already have a newer phone but I love the idea of flexible devices.

    This SHOULD cut down on the number of cracked displays.

    I'm interested to see how the future of mobile will look should flexible screens take off. This is a nice peak into what the future may possibly hold

    I don't think I will be getting the flex. Seems I won't like the way it feels in my pocket. Might be very awkward. Going to wait for the LG G3. Loving my LG G2, but I think I am ready for a bigger screen! I have T-Mobile jump so I will be ready for a upgrade 😊

    Saw and held the Flex today and I gotta tell you I'm lovin it. Only con for me is that it is not full HD. Other than that, I would ditch my Note 3 in a heartbeat. The curve is perfect. That's what she said.

    Yeah I have it now and I like it a lot. The only issues is that there is a WiFi bug that causes the phone to drop it right after coming out of standby. Also, if your brightness is set too zero you can see the ghosting issue, but if you increase the brightness the battery goes down a percent each five minutes of usage roughly. And this phone is definitely not a one handed phone or for people with small hands. However, it fits just perfect in front pockets!

    Oh let me also add the volume and lock buttons are located in the back below the camera lens and they are geniuses at LG! It not only fits right but feels right too.

    Are you having the same issue with the WiFi being dropped constantly? For me it's a huge pain bc I don't get good reception within my apartment building plus I don't want to use data when I have a strong WiFi in my apartment. But the phone will lag VERY bad, at times freezes up, for about 10-15 seconds. And it will do this about ten times within an hour (I noticed this last night when I was texting and messaging through Facebook messenger). The messages wouldn't go through. Anyways I hope it's just this phone in particular. I'm still within my fourteen days window to switch either phone or carrier. So I'm hoping before then LG sends an update fixing the bug or I'll switch.

    6 days with the g flex. No complaints at all, only minor issue i have is the screen has a lingering ghost from previous web pages but its a minor gripe.

    No. Mainly because of the massive size because I haven't seen the phone in person.

    Other concerns include the screen. I don't care for oled and the PPI is really low.

    Other specs like camera and storage space seem fine for me and the fact that it has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 quad and a Krait 400 ain't too shabby either.

    Like I said though, the size is just much to large... The Note3 is to large even

    Not getting the Flex since I've only had the G2 for 3 months, but I did get the Flex split view and theme. Both look and work great on the G2.

    So I'm the only one that has the wifi issue ? Sucks. But the battery life is great. This weekend i went thirty hours of use, yes thirty, and still had 31 percent left.

    I've got one and I haven't been this happy with a new phone purchase in a long long time. The obvious comparison is with the Note 3 and for me personally, the Note 3 is what caused my ugly breakup with Samsung. Two Note 3s, bought 6 months apart and in different states both had deal breaking, fatal gps issues and poor tower signal at home..... but I digress.
    Anyone who's owned Samsungs and an HTC One knows that when it comes to lag free performance, the HTC One spanked Samsung and sent 'em to bed without dinner....... The Flex is even better. Seriously. It's true. I've never had a phone this snappy and responsive since my last iPhone (before the S3 converted me).
    Not to say the Flex is a perfect device but it comes very close for me. Some might hesitate at the resolution but it's a spec....... LOOK AT THE SCREEN AND WATCH A VIDEO YOURSELF and see if that spec is a deal breaker or if this screen is simply gorgeous. Some might hesitate because of the camera (it proves that specs aren't everything). 13mp sounds good on paper but, honestly, it can't hold a candle to an S4 or a Note 3's camera, either in features or quality. Seriously selfie types might want to look elsewhere. It's not a Nexus so some might hesitate at the skin. I like it. They took a page from HTC and went with dark, neutral black, gray and white in the dialer and messaging apps. I prefer this skin to Sense though. Just a preference. The skin also offers some options that Samsung might want to take a hard look at.
    Like every other phone, this one ain't for everyone. It might only be a good fit for a few but anyone who's already using an Optimus G Pro, Note 2 or 3 owes it to themselves to check this one out.

    the snappiness and responsiveness is incredible on this thing, and after a couple of weeks, I am still amazed. Coming from a note 2, and the HTC one max, I totally agree about the Samsung lag, and just being plain sick of touchwiz after 5 Samsung phones. I mean, getting a AOSP rom on them did help at times..
    yes, to me the screen is gorgeous, and I couldn't care less what reviewers think, or what the spec is; people have to learn to separate what they read and what they see, and I dont "see" any of the complaints that many reviewers have said about the flex. At least everyone agrees that it is the absolute KING of battery life right now, no phone comes close.

    Yes, just like everything else in life, nothing will make everyone happy, but I am willing to bet that 90% of people who play with this thing will end up buying one. As an added bonus, we got ours from Tmobile, so they paid the 1050 ETF from Sprint, my wife and son got G2's, which is also a great phone, T-mobiles data/call speeds and clarity are FANTASTIC in Chicago land, and my entire family hasn't been this happy with their phones/network in many,many years...total win in every way for us!
