The one thing you can say for certain about the LG G Flex is that it commands attention, mostly because it is curved. Beyond that, the questions start flooding in. Why is it curved? Why is its screen so mediocre? Why would you want to buy it? Unfortunately, after using the phone for several days, I still don’t have an answer.
What Is It?
LG’s 6-inch phone with a curved screen. The curve isn’t just a selling point, it’s the selling point, as if you’re supposed to say: Sure, this phone might not have a great camera, but LOOK AT ITS CURVES FOR THE LOVE OF GOD.
Why Does It Matter?
If the prevailing Android trend of the last few years has been increasingly mammoth screen size, this year’s seems to be curved gadgets. We saw a lot of curves at CES, mostly in the form of beautiful, enveloping TVs. But curves are not exclusive to televisions. Increasingly, phones have ’em too. Whether or not they continue to depends on the success of products like the G Flex.
