T-Mobile LG G Flex vs. LG Optimus F3Q
Out of the two, the LG G Flex is obviously the premium offering. Dubbed banana-phone, it features a curved 6-inch 720p OLED display, self-healing coating on the back, and a powerful 3,500 mAh battery. The handset is powered by a 2.26 GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and packs 2 GB of RAM, rear keys, 13-megapixel main camera and 2.1-megapixel front-facing shooter. The G Flex runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and comes with a wide selection of LG-specific apps, such as Quick Theater, Quick Remote, QuickMemo, QSlide, and more.
The LG Optimus F3Q is a much more lower-end device. The phone is equipped with a physical slide-out QWERTY keyboard which may appeal to those users who still can’t get used to typing on virtual keyboards. Besides the physical keyboard, the device offers a 4-inch WVGA display, a dual-core 1.2 GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear camera and a 2,460 mAh battery. The LG Optimus F3Q will ship with Android 4.1 Jelly Bean on board.
