LG G Flex

This is the LG G Flex specifications and features rundown.

In the jungle of new phones that comes to market every year it is important for manufacturers to make products that stand out from the competition. In this manner LG has made a product that has the potential to sell the socks of the other companies.

Not only has LG made the first bendable cell phone, they have also made the first cell phone with a self healing back cover. More on that later. Based on those two things alone I believe this could be LG’s best selling phone in many years.

That takes care of the obligatory listing of the components that the phone is made from. Now lets take a closer look at what separates this phone from the rest of the pack.



The most impressive thing about this phone is of course the fact that it is flexible. They have also named the phone after this ability to flex. This means that all the parts of the phone that covers the majority of the size has to be bendable as well.

To have a phone that bends like this one does LG has made a flexible screen, cover and battery.

Self healing.

Through the use of black magic LG has managed to make a material that heals itself. If your G Flex back panel gets small to medium scratches it will actually repair itself after some minutes. Sadly there is no such thing as magic but it does indeed work. I won’t even try to explain how it works, mainly because I have no idea how. I have embedded a video below where you can see the phone bend and heal.



As I have mentioned before the battery of the G Flex is made in such a way that when the phone is bendt, the battery bends with it. Without this technology we would likely have to wait several years, until some new kind of battery tech became available, before we could see a phone like this one.

Another impressive thing about this phone is the capacity of the battery which is rated at 3500 mAh. That is unless you buy your phone through the carrier T-Mobile. For some reason the battery is listed as having 3400 mAh of juice for T-Mobile…? If someone can tell me why please drop me a line in the comments section.

LG G Flex curve

The curve on that thing!


While this is not a completely unique feature it is nonetheless worth mentioning to all the folks who has never seen the LG G2 in person. The G Flex has a rather interesting button configuration. At first glance the G Flex has none. That is until you flip it on it’s back where you will find LG’s unique ” one finger operated button”.

The competition.

At the time I am writing this there really is no other phones that directly compares very well. I guess the closest thing would be the Samsung Galaxy Round, but that is stretching it. The Galaxy Round is not flat like most phones but it is certainly not going to bend like the G Flex. It’s a bad comparison, I know, it’s just the closest thing I can think of.
