Deal: flex your fingers and buy the LG G Flex 2 for $250 before it's gone!
Move over, OnePlus! Where affordably priced flagships are concerned, LG has become second to none. Its 2015 hero phone, the LG G4, went below the $450 mark mere months after its reveal. Its 2014 flagship, the LG G3, is still the best phone with a 1440p resolution screen you can get for under $250. And now, the LG G Flex 2 is up for a measly $250 unlocked on eBay! That's just killer, however you put it.

Launched in early January 2015, the LG G Flex 2 is the company's first high-profile smartphone for this year. It features an unique curve that's bent to different degrees alongside its length. We'd describe the G Flex 2 as an odd, but nevertheless charming smartphone that was clearly meant to probe the market for flexible phones. The lack of sales means customers need to be impressed more before they put down their money, but this doesn't mean that the LG G Flex 2 doesn't wield some unique superpowers. As if its curve wasn't enough by itself, the smartphone is made of plastic with a self-healing coating that gets rid of scratches by itself!

Specs-wise, the LG G Flex 2 stands out with a 5.5-inch plastic OLED screen, Qualcomm's fiery Snapdragon 810 chip, 3GB of LPDDR4 RAM, a 13MP rear cam with dual LED flash and OIS, and 32GB of expandable storage. The phone runs Android 5.1, topped off with LG's own user interface. Again, all that for $250!

Unfortunately, LG's "poor man's flagship dealer" position is mostly due to lack of popularity, rather than a controlled decision. But if deals like these help put LG smartphones in more customers' minds (and hands), the forward-thinking Koreans might as well take advantage of the exposure! Recently, LG launched a new high-end model, the LG V10, which is packed to the brim with technology. Most notably, it features a dual front camera setup, and a secondary ticker display for quick shortcuts and notifications.

There is really no difference, it all depends on how the oem cools the chip.

$250 for a small oven is too expensive.

The G Flex2 is also the pioneer of the overheated SD810. Also, I buy from qualitycellz all the time.. Great seller. Js

This lack of popularity that is stated in the article is the one thing that I'm afraid as of now: my Flex2 probably will never see Marshmallow...

It's already been revealed that it would get it... Even the g2 (2013 flagship) is getting marshmallow. People need to stop sleeping on lg and their updating efforts

Darn. I have been looking for a $200-300 phone for my mom and was hoping this would work on Verizon's Network. Oh well the search continues.

It also lacks any T-Mobile LTE Bands. Too bad they didn't spend money on the radios. No wonder it never caught on.

I was going to get this phone a week ago, but because there's no review from PhoneArena and all the other reviewers said it had bad battery life, I ended up buying a Note 4.

I picked one up on a whim, battery life is good enough with the 5.1 update. I would recommend against flashing the PR rom at this point, it makes some things highly annoying to use.

LOL. its description on ebay lists "Slightly tacky looking" as a CON... along with "overheating", which is serious.. But in the real world, mine has never overheated, but everybody asks me if I need help to straighten it up.. tacky.. LOL

I would grab this phone in a second if I could get Windows Phone 8.1 or Windows 10 mobile on it.

No, putting Android on it would be that. Android wastes so much system resources. It lags over time, inevitably, it is far less secure.
