LG G Flex 2 lands in the US – available from Sprint


The LG G Flex 2 will finally be available to tech enthusiasts in the US via Sprint. Not only that, but the handset comes in the Sprint-exclusive sexy "Volcano Red" color, additionally to being available in the normal "Platinum Silver".

The G Flex 2 was announced at this year's CES, back in January. It's a reiteration of the G flex from 2013 – a bent phone, equipped with nifty tech gems, such as a flexible plastic OLED display, self-healing back, and a battery, which can apparently withstand the body of the phone being bent to a straight figure numerous times. That's right, you can place the G Flex 2 on its face and push until it lies flat on the table and it's internals should not be the least bit damaged, according to LG – much like it was with the old G Flex.

The new "banana phone" is equipped with a 5.5" screen, Qualcomm's latest Snapdragon 810 SoC, 2 GB / 3 GB of RAM, and 16 GB / 32 GB of RAM. Grabbing it from sprint will set you back $504 off-contract, $199 on a 2-year contract, or $21 per month for 24 months.

Are you looking to grab this self-healing bragger's gadget, or do you think that the Galaxy S6 edge is worth more geek cred by now?

Normally i'd be pretty impressed with the design of the G series However this is quite ugly

Last i heard the G Flex 2 had problems with the S810 chip and would slow down if the device overheated.

PocketNow commented on this in one of their videos of the international version. I don't think this phone is going to be a worthy device. We will see this device offered for free from the US carriers shortly after launch. Plus, with the S6 and M9 about to launch, and the G4 will be announced in a few weeks, there's no reason to pick this phone up.

In my opinion $500 is a cheap off contract price

Not really since it has a bigger screen, bigger battery, and a processor that performs better in some benchmarks, not to mention about $150 less for the MSRP.

I actually really like this phone, the design and the price is not abnoxious. Would consider if available for At&t/T-Mobile.

I think AT&T is going to sell it as well, in a different color though.

I am incredibly disappointed at the Flex 2 camera... LG FLEX 2 has a very old sensor IMX135 Sony sensor that it was introduced in the Samsung Galaxy S4... Since, my favorite feature is camera... I will be getting the S6 that comes with the IMX240 sensor, the same one in the Note 4...
