The LG G flex was a pioneer of the curved smartphone display, and while things looked to have cooled off since its arrival, it still goes down as an extremely practical phone choice, even with the insecure future.

After the flexible screen came out we along with most other mobile blogs were expecting it to be huge news and the rest of the companies to create something along the same lines. Samsung did something similar with the Galaxy Round, but that did not exactly scream out quality.

Now it looks companies like Apple are not going to follow suit at all because they do not see a need for a curved display. It looks as though these smartphones are going to be a dying breed sooner than later. If you want to try one out now could be the right time before it is extinct.

Even though the world does not seem fascinated anymore, I would not hesitate still to buy this handset. They are not flying off shelves, but they are not disliked either. It just comes down to personal preference and there is one viable argument with having a screen that is easier to see outdoors because the display becomes slightly shaded.

The LG G Flex is running Android 4.2.2 out of the box with the slight twist of having an Optimus 3.0 UI. The physical size is huge, coming in at six inches. It has a screen resolution of 720 x 1280 pixels and P-OLED technology and not OLED or AMOLED. The camera is an impressive 13 megapixels with LED. It has a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 which is not too bad considering the current flagship phones for HTC and Samsung are using the Snapdragon 801. That is rising to 805 later in the year.

If you want the curved smartphone there is only two to try. I would choose the LG G Flex if I were shopping around for a new mobile.

There is a 2-year plan option starting at $199 or the pay monthly contract.
