A little big, but I can take it...

redstu36 has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I was looking for a new phone when my older Motorola Razr Maxx conked out on me and I decided to look at other carriers. I found the LG phones at At&t to be very enticing and it came down to the G3 and the G Flex. I really liked the look and feel of the Flex and the UI is just as easy to use as my Razr and other phones I looked at (HTC One). The phone is lite but has a BIG 6" screen, but I have big hands so it's not a problem. It also fits really well in my pockets and because of the curve you barely feel it. The processor is really fast and you can go from app to app without bogging down. Overall a nice phone but wish it had more oomph, such as some weight just to let you know it's there.

Build quality 9/10 Wish it were metal.
Reception 8/10 Primarily of where I work and live, not a large city.
Call quality 10/10 Not a drop.
Internet 10/10 The stock browser is much better on this than Chrome is.
Multimedia 10/10 Has a Quick Theater app that lets you view pics, videos, and YouTube in one place.
Camera 10/10 13 MP...BEAST...
UI speed 10/10 Screen flips are flawless.
Everyday usage 9/10 Used it a lot in just a few days, only died once.
Text input 9/10 Split keyboard is kind of weird.
Display 10/10 Bright, clear and responsive. Those bad review(ers) don't know what they're talking about.
Battery 9/10 Great.

Excellent phone, but not without a few drawbcks

snowgator has owned it for less than year before publishing this review

As a fan of large screen phones, my wife asked me to contrast these types of devices. She was a current user of the Samsung Note lines, so the standard was set pretty high. This was on the market, so I checked into it.

However, the best thing we could have done is give this beast a chance. It is a unique, fun phone. For those not familiar, The LG Flex uses a special type of material on the body and screen tech to allow for a curved device which "flexes" a small amount to give it a bit of durability. It also has a "self-healing" polymer material on the back, which small scratches disappear over time. Crafters have had this type of polymer on their crafting boards for years, where after they cut out paper or whatever they have measured out, the boards polymer material slowly fills back in the scratch from the cut to it's original design.

Do these advantages pay off? Well, this is a HUGE 6" device. The best thing about the curve is that is makes it actually easier to handle. More comfortable to hold then similar sized phones like the Note3 or the Nokia Lumia 1520, it is much easier to carry and use. The curve also makes watch media and playing games on it a joy. Something about the "theatre" feel about it makes it fun. My wife is a reader, and she feels the curve screen is also perfect for that.

The screen itself is nice- vibrant and colorful. details shine. One of the advantages of a large phone is that the internal antenna is also large, resulting in great reception....  

Build quality 10/10 The Flex is assembled excellently, and the screen/body design helps with the day-to-day comfort of a large device.
Reception 10/10 Excellent.
Call quality 8/10 No problems. There are better, though.
Internet 9/10 Smooth experience.
Multimedia 10/10 This screen is EXCELLENT for watching multimedia and gaming, fine for reading.
Camera 9/10 Nice camera, nice software. LG has really done a nice job here.
UI speed 7/10 Heavy, heavy UI. It is a hit or miss style, and feel will need upkeep as the device ages to keep it a good experience.
Everyday usage 10/10 Love using it.
Text input 10/10 Needs 2 handed use.
Display 9/10 Excellent. But there are sharper ones out there. But you will not be disappointed.
Battery 8/10 Fine. Will last all day.


  • Useful curved screen
  • Nice camera
  • Great build quality
  • Excellent reception.
  • Great large screen for those wanting a huge device.


  • Expensive phone due to materials.
  • heavy UI and controls on back may not be for everyone.

LG G-Flex ...It is a very good phone

scorke has owned it for less than month before publishing this review

I bought this phone at Best Buy for $12 what a steal! The phone retailed for $804 and so far I have been very pleased with it. Battery life is great, and the processor is more than capable. Screen looks great, and yes I said looks great. I know it is a 245ppi screen, How is it that the Apple Ipad 3 running at 264ppi gets a top ranking box, but this phone with just a 19ppi difference gets the bottom ranking box??? Looking at the display it is just not that bad as some have claimed. I came from a Samsung Galaxy S3, and this is for sure and upgrade, not to mention this phone is great for everyday use! The 6 inch screen is awesome to watch video on. As I stated there are some things that can be improved upon, but as a whole.... great phone.

  • I must say that the screen is not bad, I have read so many reviews that complain about the screen, it looks very good . I am not seeing any of the pixels that have been commented on. Movies look great on this screen!!
  • I like the button on the back along with the volume.
  • The blinking indicator button on the back for notifications is a nice touch
  • Processor is plenty fast
  • Battery life is very good
  • Buy a case for this phone you will be glad you did..
  • Great idea LG for Guest Access!!
  • I have about 40 apps loaded and I still have about 16 gig available for use....not to bad this is also taking into consideration my music and all of my documents that I loaded when I connected to my laptop
  • I really like the stock LG weather/clock widget. They did a nice job!
  • In short very good phone that packs alot of features.


  • I really wish they had put a Micro SD slot in the phone.
  • The speaker needs to be pointing at you instead of you having to cup your hand around the back to bounce the sound off. HTC got this aspect right!! The rest of you should take note.
  • Wish the Battery was user replacable
