LG G Flex 2 between other peculiar phones: A size comparison

LG G Flex 2 between other peculiar phones: A size comparison
The LG G Flex 2 has, after months of rumors, finally been announced. The successor to the original G Flex, from October 2013, brings a hardware refresh, most notably – a 64-bit, bleeding edge tech SoC; a much-needed bump in resolution; and a shrunken display, to ensure a smaller, more pocketable body.

We already pitted its specs sheet against a couple of its rivals, so now – let's take a look at how it fares in the bodybuilding department – or, in other words – compare its size to a couple of other smartphones.

Our first choice will, naturally, be the 2013 LG G Flex – the smartphone, which first brought the curious curved shape to us, with its self-healing super powers and its bendable body. For a second handset, we went with another interesting device with a curved screen – the Samsung Galaxy Note Edge. And third - let's see how it compares next to Apple's first-ever phablet - the iPhone 6 Plus.

Next, let's put it next to some interesting devices from the smartphone class (and by that, we mean sub-5.5" displays). First, we'll take the thin-bezelled LG G3 - another remarkable device from the company. And since we said thin bezels - let's see how the Meizu MX4 Pro sizes up here as well. Last, to gain a bit of a better sense of familiarity, let's add the Galaxy S5 to the mix.

So, let's take a look!

A tad bit too small for my taste, but other than that nicely sized.

Finally someone realised that these phablets have nothing to do with phone sizes.

Oh, come on!!! If you are going for a comparison get the whole information. "View not available" doesn't cut it... you could have waited to get it...

I am pretty sure everything is viewable. Could you check again, please?

Can you add screen size beside dimensions and weight?

So this is basically a 1080p curved LG G3? Not bad...

Man, when you do the side view the bend in the Flex series just looks jarring!!

I really have to say that for a large phone, the bend adds a ton of advantages. It is easier to handle. It does make using it on a call way more comfortable. Just a nice way to make a large to huge device more functional. I really respect where LG has gone in the last 2 years with their phones. I am not a fan of the rear controls, although I am sure that would not stop me from buying one if they came out with a nice Windows Phone on their hardware. I could get used to it (hint, hint, nudge nudge).

I love that they are doing something different.
