And LG’s curved phone packs a few more tricks that set it apart from any other device out there.

The G Flex may be futuristic, and it will definitely turn some heads when you whip it out in public. But, hopefully, you don’t buy phones just to stand out in the crowd. So, is the LG G Flex a great phone? When the novelty factor wears off, will you be pleased with its build quality, performance, and user experience? We try to answer these and more questions in our LG G Flex review.

Design and build quality

Leaving the curved shape aside for a minute, the G Flex is a large smartphone with a design and button layout that will definitely require some adjustment time. The 6-inch device may be too big for some users, and there’s no way around it, but if that doesn’t bother you, the good news is that G Flex is surprisingly easy to hold,…………… continues on Android Authority
