LG G Flex2 Review: Curved Phone Offers More and Less of a Good Thing
March 27, 2015
NEW YORK ( TheStreet ) -- This is LG's second attempt at a curved-screen smartphone. This new LG G Flex2  keeps all the good things from the original, and has taken the somewhat unusual design to the next level. LG introduced its first G Flex curved phone back in the fall of 2013. Unlike the side-to-side curved  phone rushed to market by rival Samsung  (and, thankfully, quickly forgotten), the LG's screen curved from top-to-bottom. We liked that first generation handset and the only complaints we had were that while the LG screen flexed a very small amount, the phone was otherwise very similar to the G2 -- the company's flagship design at that time.
