The Key Reasons to Choose LG G Flex

LG G Flex design. The vertically curved LG G Flex design reduces the distance between your mouth to the microphone with the phone held against the ear. What is more, the curved LG G Flex design offers a more reassuring grip and fits more comfortably in your back pocket. Similar to the LG G2, the LG G Flex boasts the Rear Key feature, which means that there are no buttons on the sides of the handset.

LG G Flex music formats. When buying the first LG curved OLED smartphone, get ready to enjoy music in various formats – MP3, CD quality or 24 bit/192kHz Hi-Fi playback.

LG G Flex UX features:

  • With QTheater you’ll have quick access to photos, videos, and YouTube right from the lock screen. All you’ll need to do is touch the screen and drag outward along the display with two fingers. The app will appear with the effect of theater curtains being drawn.
  • Enjoy LG G Flex multitasking at full with Dual Window feature, which will divide the 6-inch screen into two separate windows.
  • Face Detection Indicator will display the LED on the Rear Key in green to confirm the status of face detection and focus.
  • Camera Timer will flash to indicate that the countdown has begun.
