LG G Flex hands-on: AT&T gets curvy

LG G Flex hands-on: AT&T gets curvy

Just because a smartphone can flex, doesn't mean it will on a regular basis. The LG G Flex does have the term in its title, but - rather similar to the S Pen in the Samsung Galaxy Note series - the amount of times we're seeing the feature in action is not one whole heck of a lot.

LG G Flex Review

LG G Flex Review

Every new niche has to start somewhere, and LG says the G Flex is the start of the flexible smartphone revolution. Why should our phones be flat when everything else around us is curved, so the company's theory goes, with ambitious dreams of folding handsets and collapsable tablets in the next decade. Today, though, the G Flex is paving the way: a 6-inch phablet with a premium price-tag and a sexy curve to its profile. Question remains, is this a gimmick or a true taste of tech to come? Read on for the SlashGear review.
