LG expects to sell the G Flex 2 mainly to "business users" over 30 years of age

LG expects to sell the G Flex 2 mainly to
The LG G Flex 2 is not yet widely available around the world, but you can buy it in South Korea, Taiwan, and the US (only via Sprint, with AT&T and US Cellular getting ready to release it in the coming months).

Just like the original G Flex from 2013, the new model has a curved, flexible body, which means it's probably not for everyone. But what kind of customers is LG targeting the handset at? Well, according to Focus Taiwan, Jee Hyung Lee, CEO and president of LG Taiwan, recently said that the company expects to sell the G Flex 2 "mainly" to "business users 30-45 years old." Of course, the exec was talking about the Taiwanese market, but that's probably also the customer base that LG is targeting in other countries.

Reportedly, LG intends to sell 20,000 G Flex 2 handsets by the end of 2015 in Taiwan. While that's a rather unimpressive number, we must not forget that Taiwan isn't among the world's largest smartphone markets.

Powered by an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor, the LG G Flex 2 runs Android 5.0 Lollipop, and features stuff like a 5.5-inch 1080p P-OLED display, a 13 MP rear camera, a self-healing back cover, 3 GB of RAM, and 32 GB of expandable storage space.

That glossy plastic back just let me down. Otherwise I would consider it as my 2nd LG phone.

Well, it is that way because of the self-healing coating on it, so it is like that for a specific purpose. Of course, not everyone would appreciate the sacrifice of a non-glossy back for that feature, so it is perfectly understandle to feel somewhat let down. For example, I personally do not believe I would mind the trade-off, even if I like the texture of my G3 better.

I beg to differ unless business users can do much business in a curved smartphone

I don't think anyone really wants this overheating disappointment. Only to be disappointed

not make any sense there is no correlation, because LG know it will not sell well they try to save face by saying its targeted for business users over 30 years which is not much in number.

I have to agree with you. Releasing this phone was almost senseless, they should have neither crossed it off or at least included it as a variant in their LG G4 line up, just like the Galaxy S6 did with the Edge.

Oh Ya LG, because professionals just love having that giant piece of plastic next their ear in a suit. A professional will generally have a full on laptop with him.
