I hope battery life will improve with 6.0 as that is the only little minus in this beast. Got this phone quite recently at the price of 269Â€ (in Finland) which is pretty cheap price for high-end phone like this!

[deleted post]Choices, choices, choices... that's one of my biggest problems when it comes to smartphones and that's why i have multiple phones because there are just too many awesome phones in the market. Anyway, if you really have to choose one i would say buy Flex 2. It's the most unique of those you mentioned but also powerful with SD810 and with 5.1.1 phone doesn't overheat like it used to before the update. LG G4 has best screen resolution but i think its also the most expensive (depends where you live). Nexus has the best software support as it's supported directly by Google. Xperia Z3's glass design is not for everyone and it's the most fragile of those 4 because of that but Sony is well known for it's software support and good quality. Really hard to choose, i agree and i would buy 2 of them but if you can't afford or just need one phone, go for Flex 2 :)

The user usable memory is 8.5 gb only. This is one of the drawbacks of this phone. But to be frank Android memory management sucks.
I am expecting with marshmallow his problem will get solved.

I bought 16gb version this week. Until know it seems very good. But it only has 8,5gb of memory available, the rest is for the system. I don't understand this kind of use for the system. Your versions also have this issue?
Best business and pleasure phone I had. Forget iphones sonys samsungs at this price this is the king
I've had my Flex 2 for about a month and i can tell you that i absolutely love this phone. I've had iPhones, LG's, and Samsung. This is by far the best phone that i have ever had. Nice size screen and picture quality. Some reviews says that picture quality isn't that great but i beg to differ. The picture quality is amazing. Any who, i picked this phone up from Amazon for $199 (retail, not a contract price)!!!! Its the best thing
Awesome phone with awesome features.very nice phone with more battery life.this phone Battery last two days easily
Which one is better for gaiming and heavy use lg g flex 2 2gb ram version or lg g3 3gb ram version ???? Lg g3 has lpddr3 ram and g flex2 has lpddr4 ram which is better ? In my country only 2gb ram version available in flex 2 and g3 is available in 3gb ram version iam so confused which one is future proof and better performance???help me guys
I made some Antutu v6.01.
SD810 is heat depended, you can judge the difference by yourself.
Room temperature 25C:
Several Antutu passes one by one:
Cooled down the phone for 5min outside the room and run test outside the room -10C
kopi78, yes, unfortunately price is an important factor, I wish it is not.
If you want samsung I recommend to wait for Samsung releases S7 (next month maybe), then S6 will be cheaper probably and the difference between S6/S7 should not be big.
I had a chance to Flex 2 with S6 edge a little bit several weeks before:
-both screens seemed sharp
-S6 looked brighter (whites are whiter), if you compare side by side. But it appeared that if you switch off brightness auto adjustment and set maximum brightness Flex 2 looked on par. I don't know if S6 was in manual mode or automatic, sorry. I think Samsung's AMOLED is better but Flex 2 is not far. You can check gsmarena review for that.
The owner of S6 edge complained on low battery life with S6 max 1 day, but he is heavy user though.
Flex 2 screen is from the same OLED department - I confirm that contrast is great, black is pitch black and colors are vivid. There are some settings to adjust screen colours, but Flex 2 is not so accurate in this department according to tests. Anyway I can't see the difference by the naked eye.
I have G Flex 2 nearly 1 month and here goes my feedback.
Overall performance is great, sound quality is very good and loud for both internal and external speakers and it also has good microphone. Volume and power button placement is not an issue for me as mostly knock on feature is used. It's even quite handy that perimeter of phone has no buttons at all. Screen is grainy, that's true, especially in low brightness. Besides that, it really makes very "noisy" grey tones. Actually this could be an issue for some people, that's why I recommend to study thread on xda developer forum about this issue. Every bad thing you find there is true. On the other hand, on daily use, when you look at the screen w/o counting pixels, colors are not bad at all and overall impression is positive. Curved design is acceptable and all the people to whom I gave the phone confirmed that it feels very ergonomic in hand.
Apps on the phone run smoothly, no complains about that part (I have 2GB/16GB version). The phone is not loaded full of useless apps, that's positive as well. Web browsing is lightning fast by using 4G or WiFi. Miracast or WiDi works perfectly for the photos and videos even with my Samsung TV :)
Top 3 things I didn't like from basic features: 1.European version of the phone (H955) comes with no call recorder built in (Korean version has it). Luckily I found free and good app in play store for this purpose. 2.Notification sound once you have charged the phone. As I was charging it overnight next to my bed, I wasn't very happy with that. In settings there are no option to turn it off, so the only way to get rid of it is by turning off sounds of system notifications in general. That is what I did. 3.Notification LED for missed calls and messages - the LED is there, but it blinks once per 12 seconds what means that you have to stare at phone pretty much to see haven't you missed something or use glance screen what is not always handy.
Heating - no heating at all on daily use (calls, web-browsing, e-mails). It heated up a bit once I took it brand new out of the box and did all the updates (including Android 5.1.1). After a while I installed NOVA3 and World of Tanks games, just to check the heating issue (I am not a gamer at all). With NOVA3 it became pretty warm, but not hot. With WoT it became really hot - around the main camera and opposite side on the screen. Yes, it was hot. I don't have experience what happens with other phones if you playing games like this, so I can't comment whether level of heat is acceptable or not.
Battery life - first few days with heavy installations and usage of phone it worked for 1 day. If it is mainly used for calls, few emails, reminders, it can survive 3 days for sure. Web browsing consumes pretty much of battery (because of display), so for me the phone usually lasts 2 full days. One of the most consuming backgroud app for me is Exchange email. I don't use FB and Twitter.
Camera. That was one of the reasons why I chose this phone based on the reviews on the Internet. Camera doesn't have manual controls, but it has OIS and very fast autofocus - that all is there and work accordingly. So far I am not very satisfied with quality of pictures and videos. They are not bad, but it seems that I was hoping for a bit better performance, especially on taking photos. Good point is that it has good microphone and sound in videos actually is better than on my Full HD camcorder.
Certainly it has even more apps and features like built in IR remote control, NFC etc.
Up to now I am pleased with general performance of the phone, keeping in mind price I've paid for it. I am not sure should I have to upgrade it to Android 6.0 in future as currently it runs very well.
Nick, 15 Jan 2016I have two friends one with Xperia Z3 one with Flex 2. I can ask and compare. What do you want... moreThanks for this in depth compere :)
My choice is Samsung S6 but is out of my budget range, so that why I have to choose in this price range. The both phones Xperia Z3 and LG G Flex2 are with same price in my country (200eur less than S6). So because I love Samsung's AMOLED screens, is it LG G Flex2's P-OLED similar to the AMOLED or is no near to that??
I'm talking about Contrast, vividness, punchy colors,brightness...
