AT&T starts accepting pre-orders for the LG G Flex; curvy phone to ship February 4th
AT&T customers can pre-order the LG G Flex starting today, for $299.99 with a signed two-year pact. Off-contract, the phone is priced at $694.99. The device will ship on February 4th. With a 6 inch curved display, the LG G Flex has a unique design. Unlike the Samsung Galaxy Round, which features a horizontal curve, LG's handset features a vertical curve. In addition, there is the self-healing back cover which automatically repairs light scratches.

Similar to the LG G2, the volume rocker and power controls are on the back of the phone. LG decided to use a 720 x 1280 resolution on the 6 inch screen which works out to a rather disappointing 245ppi. These days, high end models usually have a pixel density in the 320ppi to 400+ppi range. And with QHD screens expected to take the stage this year, we should see the 500ppi barrier shattered.

Other than the screen, the rest of the specs seem top notch including the quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 CPU, Adreno 330 GPU and the 2GB of RAM on board. 32GB of native storage is included although there is no microSD slot on the phone. A 13MP snapper is on back with a 2.1MP camera on front. A massive 3500mAh battery powers the huge screen and Android 4.2.2 is pre-installed.

With the bubbling screen issue, bland looks and expensive price this has fail all over it unfortunately. I really like LG and their brand of android os is my favorite (not that I really like android period) its really a shame.

The 720p screen, was a deal breaker for me....

This phone sucks. 1) Overpriced 2) Poor screen resolution 3) Its too big for most people 4) Not flexible, just curved 5) The curve has no benefits 6) Bland design 7) Android 4.2.2 So many strikes against it.

1) True, Lumia quickly dropped to $199 and I see this happening for the Flex as well. 2)Screen resolution was great when I just played with it, but the 720p is disappointing. 3) Samsung Mega sold so why wouldn't a phone barely wider and taller than a note 3 sell? 4) I laid the phone on the table, flattened it to be completely and it bent back to shape... Flexible 5) Believe it or not the curve made phone calls fit to the face comfortably and for video viewing was a bit better than my note 3. 6) A step up from a G2 (which is popular) which looks decently nice. 7) Good Point These are my opinions and experience with the phone. I am sure you had enough time to play with it to give you a rightful opinion of it. But don't knock it that hard, it's not a bad device by any means.

only considering this because of its proposed durability. no one still mentioned whether or not the phone bends to fit your pocket
