The 1st generation LG G Flex was a bit of an experiment, since no one made a phone that wraps around horizontal axis before. Despite a lot of uncertainty and doubt, the device had a very warm reception. So warm, in fact, that LG decided to make a sequel. Called simply LG G Flex 2, the successor was released a couple of months ago and now made its way to another US carrier. AT&T is now selling the phone priced at $299.99 with a new two-year contract.
LG G Flex 2 for AT&T
If you are not a fan of long-term commitments, the carrier has other payment options for you. For instance, you can pay the G Flex 2 off in monthly installments with AT&T Next program. Depending on which plan you choose, the device will set you back $23.64, $29.55 or $35.45 per month with AT&T Next 24, Next 18 or Next 12, respectively. You can also pay full retail price at checkout in which case the phone will cost you $708.99.
Unusual shape aside, the G Flex 2, like its predecessor, has a few cool tricks to offer, such as the self-healing coating on the back panel of the handset which significantly reduces the number of scrapes and scratches a phone can sustain from normal usage. Of course, there is much more to the G Flex 2 than just fancy exterior – real power hides inside.
The phone boasts a 5.5-inch Full HD display, an octa-core Snapdragon 810 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel camera with optical image stabilization and laser auto focus, a 2.1-megapixel camera for selfies and a massive 3,000 mAh battery. Internal memory is set at 32GB plus there is a microSD slot compatible with up to 2TB cards. The handset runs Android 5.0 Lollipop with LG-specific features such as Knock Code and Glance View.
The LG G Flex 2 comes with a pretty hefty price tag compared to other similar devices, but let’s face it – there are not so many curved phones out there with high-end features and additional software functionalities. To be more exact, there is only one, not counting the predecessor, and it’s for grabs from AT&T starting today.
