According to the manufacturer, the back panel of G Flex is capable of “regeneration” – a special protective film on the back cover is able to heal thin scratches in a few minutes.
LG G Flex has 3500mAh Li-PO powerful battery, which will be sufficient for gaming and multimedia activity. The device includes all connectivity options such as 3G, WI-Fi a/b/g/n/AC, WI-Fi Direct and DLNA, NFC, Bluetooth v4.0, MicroUSB port, USB host support, USB on-the-go, Slim Port TV-out.
According to the LG, the curved battery is designed with the latest technology, which reduces physical load on the battery and deliver extra backup and good performance.
This gadget is primarily embodied in the life of an interesting concept, says Sam Byford. Despite the fact that the curved screens can play a big role in the future, such smartphones as G Flex and Samsung Galaxy Round, can hardly be called the effective application of this technology, says the expert.
Despite the fact that the curved phone from Samsung and LG are unlikely to have much chance of success in the coming years, flexible displays from miniature displays for smart phones to giant screens will become much more popular, according to research analyst firm IHS. Global supply of flexible displays will grow from 3.2 million in 2013 to 792 million in 2020, analysts predict IHS.
After seeing all above specification, we came to the point that LG G Flex is a nice phone, but we would not recommend buying it yet like ordering a Pizza because $900 is not a small amount. We are sure that LG is not expecting the phone to be a best selling gadget; since we didn’t find the research and development very successful before for flexible screens. So we are not surprised that LG is charging such a price for this phone. In some ways, G Flex is proving itself status symbol and concept phone.
We are sure that G Flex would be a mile stone for the company and LG will continue to make curved phone in future even some better. The company will slash the price for the phone and will make reasonable buy. For a while, we will sit and wait for the action.
