Just like Sprint, AT&T will sell the LG G Flex for $299 on contract. However, AT&T didn't say exactly when its G Flex would be available. It should happen pretty soon though...

4.Not the most popular color
6.Only 720p on that large screen
7.Minor stuff
...it won't be sales record. But it will have fans, it's very innovative, high-end Android phablet.

Not to mention the battery. The Lumia 1520 has a 3400mAh and lasts me two days on one charge. I'd expect the G Flex to get similar battery life.

not to mention, LG has terrible smartphone support. As a former optimus G owner, I can confirm this. A phone is only as good as its support

A flagship device coming out 3 months after the release of KitKat & it's running 4.2.2. Keep in mind folks, that the S4 debuted with 4.2.2 back in April. This device should be running 4.3 at the very least. I realize your average consumer won't know the difference or care, but I think that's just pitiful. One of the many reasons why I would never buy an LG device.

Also, not that I would ever buy a phone on contract ever again, but that on contract price? o_O This thing will be down to $99 on contract within 3 or 4 months. Mark my words.

Your right they should have 4.3 by now, that's the thing with LG devices they lack updates but overall the phone is decent. But for that price it's decent

Overpriced and better options are out there.

299 Plus a contract? I thought carriers were toning back the 300 dollar offerings. Guess enough people bought Note's to justify that price point.

In my usage, that phone would be sliding and rocking all over the place.
Nice looking, usable for me, not a chance.

Man, this is steep. I am fine with paying for what you want and/or need. But this is really unproven tech and design. This is high on my wife's list of phones to look at, but that is a ton of cash and 24 month commitment rolled into a new form factor with a new button lay out and added to a company with a fairly rocky reputation in mobile products lately.

They are truly confident in this monster.

Or, maybe just overconfident .....
