LG G Flex LS995

Recommended Posts

I'm thinking about picking one up as well. The idea of a curved, flexible form factor is intriguing, so I will definitely be checking it out once it hits the stores.

 

I like the thought of a phone with a flexible plastic screen that will be much less likely to break.  I just wish it was a little smaller.

The size may be a tad bit too big for me, but I won't know until I have it in hand. I could go for a phone larger than the Note 2, but the Mega was too big when I looked at that one. The LG G Flex might be just the right fit. Definitely like the more durable screen. I have dropped my phone on concrete floor twice over the past two weeks. I have lucked out so far, but it will be nice to have more peace of mind.

No still just snapdragon 800...

 

What I find confusing is that it is 299.99 with a two year agreement.. i thought those don't exist anymore or am I missin something... At least they are being phased out.

At a 6 inch screen, I might as well just curve the screen of the Nexus 7 and call it a day.

 

I find the Nexus 5 to be about the biggest I will ever want a phone, at times the screen just looks massive to me.

I agree. I had a GN2 too and it was too large as my main device. My N5 would stay my daily driver.

I am thinking 6 inches for me is a sweet spot I mean it's not as pocketable! But,I like my anime shows and books on this ONE max screen... I don't go dancing like I use to so I won't need as small of a phone to fit into my jeans lol... Can't wait to see the flex for myself in store though....

I believe yesterday I saw under network specs it said LTE-A support. And now it is gone. I wonder if they just meant Spark enabled

Sadly, I have my G2 already, but I would get this if I didnt.

For those who do get the LG G Flex, be sure to not go overboard with showing off its flexibility...

Consider yourselves forewarned.

 

I, for one, am still considering picking up this device when it comes out.

Absolutely, I love it to death. The customizations using G2 xposed is worth it plus development is picking up. I just like the fact the the flex has well its flexible.

i'm very interested in this one. i'm wanting a phone with a bigger screen and was interested in the One Max, but going to wait and see what this one is like since it comes out soon. hopefully its RF reception is on par with the G2 or even the N5!

This phone will definitely be one of those make it or break it deals with the US and Curved phones. If this phone sells well, I think we will see other companies introduce curved phones here.

Agreed.  I hope the LG G Flex does well in the US.  Maybe if LG can be start to become a threat then maybe Samsung will try to innovate again.

I got a exclusive look at the flex today. My friend is a att manager and he let me play with it for a bit. First off the screen is gorgeous and the curve makes video look awesome. Thought it was a gimmick at first but i really like it. The colors obviously put the g2 to shame but the g2's camera took much better pics. For one it was more steady and the pics came out much sharper on the G2. But the sound damn impressive. It is louder than the nexus 5 and the G2 put together regardless of the speaker being on the back instead of the bottom. It was not tinny like the G2 at all and playing the same youtube video from my G2 and the flex I couldnt even hear the G2 thats how loud and great the speakers are on the flex. Its a big phone but doesnt look like it thanks to the curved screen. I didnt try a pocket test though. I like the G2 UI better but all and all I would like to use the flex as my daily driver.

That's great news Terrell! Now that my area is LTE live, any temptation for leaving Sprint has gone bye bye.

 

And with 29 hours talk time, this is a strong contender in my search for a Spark device!

Awesome. Thanks for the mini review! :tu:

 

I am definitely looking forward to checking out this phone once it hits the stores and will likely bite on this one. I could use some flexible triband goodness! :lol:

I don't know if its because it was fresh out of the box when I used it but its actually kind of hard to bend the phone. It is going to be the display unit so I didn't want to damage it though so I held back alot of strength. One thing is regardless of it being 720p and not as sharp as the G2 video still look better and I love looking at videos on my G2.

Our LG rep came into the store in Madison today and had a G Flex on him that he let me check out. It feels every bit as big as what I thought it would be due to the 6" screen but it did feel really zippy and fast as expected. 

To me it feels like a curved G2 with a big display which is good and bad. I really don't need a phone that big but some people do, so I get it.

Personally I wouldn't use one but for someone who doesn't want a Samsung phablet I would recommend them to try this one out. We'll see longevity wise how it holds up to being dropped and what not.

      Hey guys, have any other users of the g flex 2 noticed issues with lagging battery life etc? Since I got my g flex 2 I have had these issues, even after a complete factory reset / wipe it's still laggy with minimal applications installed? I was just curious if that anyone else had been having these type of issues with the g flex 2.

      It's that time again for the phones to come out during the summer to start leaking!
       
      The G2 is a great phone so we all have high expectations for LG to deliver a better phone in the G3!
       
      Some rumors so far:
      2K display
      16 MP camera with OIS
      Octa-Core/Snapdragon 805
      5.5 inch display

      I bought an LG Tribute to track the rollout of Sprint Spark (and to test Network Vision service as well) in my area. Is there anything I should know when I start tracking? Any particular apps I should get or dialing codes I should know?

      Hey all!
       
      I found this forum while looking for updates on my hopefully-soon 4G installation in Charlottesville, VA.  It looks like there is a ton of stuff to learn about how these phones and networks work here so I hope to gain some knowledge!

    • Wrong perks program. This is akin to the Sprint Works program, where Sprint and your company have a bit of a deal that gets you a discount on your line. For example, I have a $5 discount for the time being thanks to the Sprint Works deal with my employer. 
    • The *vast* majority of markets had at least 60Mhz deployed, more if you count small cells and magic boxes. There were only a few areas where they were limited to 40Mhz due to spectrum issues.
    • I was in Greenville, NC last week and finally go to experience T-Mobile's network somewhere that wasn't New York for an extended period of time. Just like NYC, T-Mobile's 600MHz spectrum is extremely underdeployed. There are about 15 T-Mobile sites in the entire city and T-Mobile has deployed 600MHz on only 1 of them. Sprint on the other hand has tri-banded nearly every site. Another issue is that Greenville has pretty bad site density on all networks but the issue is exacerbated on T-Mobile by the fact that they lack Band 12 licenses for pretty much all of Eastern NC. The only lowband license they have is 600MHz and they haven't really put it to use at all. The good news is that speeds weren't that bad at all. Speeds were around 20Mbps on average with peaks of about 65Mbps. Deploying 600MHz likely isn't a priority for T-Mobile in Greenville and the towns surrounding it because on their end the network performance looks fine however, deploying 600MHz would fill in a lot of coverage gaps and give a much more reliable signal overall. Until then, Verizon and AT&T will have T-Mobile beat on coverage thanks to them having lowband on every site and U.S. Cellular will have them beat because U.S. Cellular has a bunch of extra sites that no other carrier uses in the region that provide them with much better coverage than any other carrier in the area.
    • Think T-Mobile will bid on this 5G spectrum?: https://www.defense.gov/Newsroom/Releases/Release/Article/2307275/white-house-and-dod-announce-additional-mid-band-spectrum-available-for-5g-by-t/ “The White House and Department of Defense announced today that 100 megahertz (MHz) of contiguous mid-band spectrum, in the 3450-3550 MHz band, will be available for 5G by the end of the summer.“ More info: https://breakingdefense.com/2020/08/pentagon-gives-up-huge-slice-of-spectrum-for-5g/ “The White House formally made the request in April. Roughly 200 technical experts from all four armed services, the Office of Secretary of Defense, and the White House Office of Science & Technology Policy studied the problem for 15 weeks. The FCC, which has already endorsed the plan, will start auctioning the spectrum off in December 2021, Kratsios said, with commercial use beginning “as soon as mid-2022.”” I’m sure AT&T/Verizon will fight hard for it.
    • My bet is that TMo is having to pay $0 for those deals. They're intro-level promos to drive traffic to those partners, broadcast across TMo's entire customer base. Wouldn't be surprised if the money goes in the opposite direction, easily paying for whoever actually runs the program.
