The second generation of LG G Flex model is finally in stores.
The original G Flex model had 6 inch screen but in the new model the screen is reduced to 5.5 inches. The new model has many new spectacular specs including octa-core Snapdragon 810 CPU. It has 1080 p OLED display.
The sides of the phone are curved which makes it bend-resistant. The back of the phone is made of plastic and is also scratch resistant. As the phone has the new self-healing technology, it can heal from scratches really very fast.
This beautiful phone is available in two vibrant colors. You can either get the glossy back version or the bright red version according to your taste. The great thing about this phone is that it is the first phone that comes with octa-core Snapdragon chip. You can either get the 16 GB RAM phone or the 32 GB RAM phone.
We all know that people really liked the camera of LG G3. LG G Flex 2 is also using the same hardware for its camera as the LG G3. At the back of LG G Flex 2 there is a 13 MP camera with OIS and laser auto-focus. At the front there is 2.1 MP camera. You can also take vibrant photos even when the setting is quite dull using LG G Flex 2. The laser auto-focus helps in capturing the fast moving scenes. It has the same 3000 mAH battery which was also available in LG G Flex.
So will the G Flex 2 sell well? That is the big question. The first was a bit of a disappointment and whilst its successor definitely has a number of improvements the market currently dictates that there is a growing demand for cheap Smartphone which may mean the G Flex is nothing more than a bit part player in marketplace.

Anyways, moving on with the review, LG G Flex 2 has almost the same features as LG G3. LG G Flex 2 runs on Android 5.0.1 Lollipop whereas LG G3 runs on 4.4.4 KitKat OS. Both of the phones provide the wake, Knock Code and LG widgets on the home screen. Even then the feel of LG G Flex 2 is much faster than the LG G3. One of the great features of LG G Flex 2 is the glance view. Just with a single swipe held down from the top, you would be able to see the time and notifications on this phone.
LG G Flex 2 has no buttons on the sides which makes it really easy to hold and use. There are a few buttons at the back of the phone for volume and home screen. As the processor of this phone is quite fast, it makes multitasking quite efficient. Due to its fast charging technology, it can be charged up to 50 percent in just 40 minutes.
