Review: LG G Flex 2 Amazing Android Phone

THE GOOD/ The LG G Flex 2 sports a uniquely immersive and comfortable arched design, a sharp 1080p display, the latest Snapdragon 810 processor and a scratch-resistant coating.

THE BAD/ The device's camera takes muted photos, its battery capacity is smaller than its predecessor, and performance can be slow at times.

THE BOTTOM LINE/ No longer just a daring experiment, the G Flex 2 finally has the killer screen and top-of-the-line processor that its bold design deserves.

With its new G Flex 2, LG went back to its curved drawing board, corrected all the missteps of the original G Flex -- namely its unwieldy size and unimpressive 720p display -- and delivered a marquee-worthy device. Equipping it with a crystal-clear 1080p touchscreen and the latest quad-core Snapdragon 810 processor from Qualcomm, the company managed to elevate its arched handset from a gimmick (as some saw it) to an arched handset you actually want, regardless of its shape.

Such a task doesn't come easy for LG. Despite steadily pumping out premium phones like the G Pro 2, Google Nexus 5 and G3, LG has had difficulty carving a place for itself in the Android market. Its devices lacked the sophisticate aesthetic of the HTC One series, the quirky customization incentives of Motorola, and the brand awareness of Samsung, which overshadows all these companies. For a while, it seemed that LG was bound to be without a hero phone that could set itself apart.
