LG G Flex 2 vs Sony Xperia Z3 vs Samsung Galaxy S5: A specs comparison
Well, Happy New Year to us tech-heads – LG has officially announced the LG G Flex 2 – it was speculated and rumored about, but we had no idea how it would look. Well – it's gorgeous!

The successor to the curved, flexible G Flex from 2013 brings a smaller, yet – finer display – with a 5.5" diagonal, housing a 1080 x 1920 resolution (400 PPI), and boasts Qualcomm's latest flagship SoC – the 64-bit, octa-core Snapdragon 810 in strides to successfully carry the baton throughout 2015.

Of course, after such an announcement, we are itching to compare its specs to some of its competitors. Unfortunately, 64-bit capable flagships are yet to come out en masse, so we're forced to look back on some of the better performers from last year.

Well, let's grab one from the first half and one from the second half of 2014. The former device is going to be – you guessed it – the Samsung Galaxy S5 – an all-rounder, brim-packed with features and powerful hardware. The second contestant is going to be Sony's beautiful Xperia Z3 – released just 3 months ago, this flagship impressed us with an excellent battery life, and its snappy performance is no doubt assisted by its respectable specs.

So, let's check them out side by side!
