One day, somewhere and someone in LG’s creative unit decided that a curved smartphone would be a great idea. Of course, not having any pre-existing smartphones with that sort of a design proved to be a challenge, which is why LG had three separate companies design the G Flex: a smartphone that not only has a curvature in its body shape, but with its screen, as well.
Enter LG Chemistry, where they developed a curved battery, followed by LG Display, who creating the durable-yet-curved 6-inch screen, and finally, LG Mobile, who took all of the time and effort put forth by the prior two companies, then sandwiched that in a variety of sensors, silicon, and software. That’s the G Flex, in a nutshell: it’s a love child who can be deemed significant due to the some of its parts.
Lots of parts, which by the way, come from another LG smartphone: the G2, which I reviewed back in October.
But is the G Flex a good phone, period? Let’s find out.
