LG G Flex 2 global rollout starts in March

LG just announced that it's ready to begin the global rollout of the G Flex 2, its first smartphone to be powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor. While the G Flex 2 is already available to buy in South Korea, customers in other markets will only get it in March.

As revealed last week, Sprint will launch the G Flex 2 on March 13. LG is now confirming that "other major carriers" in the US will start selling the handset in the weeks following MWC 2015 (which ends on March 5). AT&T and US Cellular will certainly be among those carriers. Folks in the UK, France, Germany, Hong Kong, and Singapore will be able to buy the new G Flex at about the same time.

Besides being powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, the LG G Flex 2 offers plenty of other attractive features. Like last year's G Flex, the new smartphone has a curved, flexible body, and a self-healing back cover. Its screen is a 5.5-inch 1080p one, while Android 5.0 Lollipop comes pre-installed. Other features include a 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, 3 GB of RAM, and a 3000 mAh battery with fast charging capabilities.

G3 was the first [widely] phone with a QHD screen, which it's not that great compared to others (Note 4).
GF2 is the first 810 phone and real life tests [according to websites] say it's terrible, with widgets reloading when the home button is pressed and taking 7-10 seconds for the home screen to load.

810 isn't ready for the mass market as it looks like a rushed product. Either that or LG did a really poor job optimizing the phone.

Could somebody remind me of the point of getting a flexible phone instead a rigid one?

I've heard people saying the phone is easy at one-hand operation. Be that as it may, I still don't see any compelling reason of creating this variant other than because the tech exists.

since smartphone hardware's spec almost the same, Apple distinguishes iPhone from others by IOS, LG only can make difference on it shade, we will see the bendable phone soon in future

From the front, it looks like the OnePlus One.

Why would anyone buy this phone?

The SD 810 is a disaster.

For God's sake!! Why everybody talks about the chipset as if they already handled the dreaded thing? Based on a couple of handons nevertheless. I just want it to run Facebook and Candy Crush.. can you leave me to hope and dream alone? I use to dig this website, but lately everybody is just arguing and fighting ant trolling.. its unbeareable...

Well, its time for my medication...

Anybody know which version sprint will carry? I keep reading there are two versions. The first with 2gb ram with 16gb rom. The second has 3gb ram with 32gb rom. Confusing part is sprints website has 2gb ram with 32gb rom while best buy has the sprint version with 2gb ram and 16gb rom. I would love to have the 3gb ram and 32gb rom version. New here sorry for the long comment but does anyone know which version they actually will be carrying?
