m shuker, 27 Apr 2016Where the f*ck is Flex2 Marshmallow update, disappointed. Exactly my thoughts too! LG priorities are fucked up regarding Marshmallow updates... ...even some LG's Snapdragon 410 chipset devices already got 6.0 update but not their flagship Flex 2? I have a bad feeling that LG has abandoned Flex 2 and that's probably because Flex 2 hasn't sold well from what i understand :/ Come on LG, stop being stupid and release Marshmallow for Flex 2... ...or maybe Flex 2 will skip 6.0 and go straight to Android N?!? That would make sense.
kail, 27 Apr 20162 months old. i gave my phone to lg service centre and they didnt find a problem after 2 days ... moreMy flex 2 battery lasts at least a whole day of normal, to mediate usage(texting, facebook, whatsapp, bit of taking pictures, web browsing...) try a factory reset, and don't install any apps, try out how the phone is behaving, if battery still lasts so short, then try buying a new battery. Has the battery lasted longer in the begining, or was this problem present since you bought the phone?
My Flex 2 lags (is slow) when I open Messaging,Contacts and Dialer.
I have to wait until it loads.
kail, 27 Apr 20162 months old. i gave my phone to lg service centre and they didnt find a problem after 2 days ... moreMaybe you use some heavy app that drain the battery. Try make factory reset and dont install any games or dubious apps, also don't use any "power management" apps anyhow (because they don't actually help!).
Sometimes these steps help.
If not, it may be a battery problem.
Actually I don't play any games on mine so it lasts long enough. Battery also is getting killed when your phone gets hot. So, guys - this phone is not for games...

Mahmodmansy, 24 Apr 2016iam confues between g flex2 and nexus 5x Hello,
Am owning an LG G Flex2 (16 GB) version and suggest you not to go for this phone. As the phone heats up regularly. At times the heat is unbearable.
Performance stand point it is again a very weak phone compare to its main rivals.
The only reason you should be buying this phone is for its curvy screen.
If you are buying please buy 32 GB version. In 16GB version, 7GB is used by the system and user gets only 8.4 GB.
P.S: Have not known much about 5x.

There is no screen problem
Its weird because I dont have games or other applications wich use graphic processor.
Anonymous, 24 Apr 2016You should be a reviewer. That was a nice and concise review. For the heat, have you tried do... moreThanks a lot! I appreciate the praise.
I haven't tried downclocking the phone because it performs quite well in battery saving mode which downclocks the cpu (I think)... also I haven't dedicated much time into researching the possibility of custom roms (to get android M), but I didn't find much so I didn't bother Rooting it.... :)

DORIN, 19 Apr 2016I dont know what to do. I would send it in service, but I dont think they will find a solution... morethat sounds like it's a GPU problem, specifically overworked. If you can't RMA it and can't get your money back I would look into the possibility of finding a custom kernel and underclocking the GPU.... However this is probably not possible since this isn't a popular phone with much custom development attention...
The model I own is the international 16GB rom / 2GB ram model
I've had this phone since black friday 2015 since the sale price of 220 Â€ was irresistible.
Before I give my opinion this is what i value:
Price/performance (I'm a student), a good OLED display is a must have, 5.5+ screen size, SD slot (I'm not paying the ludicrous premiums of higher capacity phones), IR Blaster (I can never find my remote, and frankly have no clue where it is since I haven't used it in over a year, so I love having an IR transmitter on my phone), Battery should last me a day and finally the phone has to be fast and fluid.
(My phones so far have been: S3, iphone 4s, S4 +, Nexus 5, Xiaomi note 2)
Now my opinion:
At 220 Â€ this phone is a decent buy, definitely a top 3 for me, the phone is very fast and responsive (i'm on stock rom 5.1.1).
The construction is great (there's a BUT),
the plastic back feels a little meh (that self healing coating is kinda weird since bigger scratches remain, so it just looks like I got a new phone and beat it on concrete, instead of looking 6 months old), but that doesn't matter because the glass is the most resistant i've ever had on a phone, there are NO macro nor micro scratches on the glass and i've never used a case or a screen protector... it is like new 6 months in... And i've dropped this phone on concrete a couple of times and on wooden floors plenty of times.
BUT: the screen is utter garbage. I got a grainy (only on grey and red colors) at anything but 100% brightness. The worst part is LG wouldn't RMA the product so big minus on customer service (In their opinion the display was fine)... And it really disappoints when it can't even compete with the S3 which is 4 years old now.
Performance is great (BUT),
the phone is fast and responsive and I can't recall any hiccups, stutters, crashes, etc... off the top of my head, so a big plus. The internal storage speed is just ludicrously fast for a phone (benched at 220+ MB/s read/write) and that might explain why :).
BUT (here it comes) this phone gets warm to the touch but the thermals cause the screen brightness to lower automatically, making it utterly useless outdoors on a sunny day at anything over 15 degrees C (70F roughly, I believe) and for me this pulls down doubly because my screen is crap (grainy) at anything but 100% brightness...
The battery life is fine!
I get around 3-4.5 of screen on time (depending on the day) but it has been completely fine for getting me through almost any day. The kicker is the fast charger which is also very fast (I think it charges about 50%-60% in 30 min).
I do not care about the camera, it works for scanning in documents and that's about what I do with it :) So I cannot comment on the camera performance.
Neither do I care about the speaker since I only use it for alarm clocks and playing music while showering so all I can say is that it's loud enough to do both:)
The Headphone jack (or rather the internal amp) is nothing to write home about, it has enough grunt to power low impedance headphones (mine are 60 ohm headphones and it barely manages to push them).
Wifi is great, I only have a 100-100 connection at home so no surprise I have speed tested it to about 98-99 on speedtest, but haven't tested its limits.
Same goes for LTE reception... It might even be slightly above average... Most of my friends have iphones so I can only say that it has better reception than any iphone.
Custom roms are really scarce... this is not a popular product so if you don't like LGs version of android then don't buy it, or do your research!
Lastly, the curve is just awesome. It does a few things: It makes the phone easier to handle, which is nice since I have small hands. (speculation time) I also think the bend and flexibility helps shock absorption which would explain why it handles drops like a Baws! Yes, Baws! The effect of the bend on the screen and viewing experience is negligible... I forgot it wasn't flat after 10 min of use. I do not know what the experience is like with Google Cardboard or similar products...
Great budget phone, 200-250 Â€ is the right price point. But also don't expect more for your money (since it did launch at 650+ Â€ I believe...)... It is fast, responsive, good battery life, full feature pack for the indoor person, but outdoors it starts to falter.
The screen and thermal throttling related to the screen brightness is garbage and the screen doesn't get particularly bright nor does it get particularly dim... It is a remarkably poor display.
The quality control is utter junk and so is customer service (In Denmark at least), however it is built like a tank and is the most drop and scratch resistant phone i've owned.
This phone is LG in its wheelhouse... The 200-400 Â€ price range is where LG shines (I mean the G4 dropped to 400Â€ after about 3 months I believe, and that's where LG can compete. Are you looking for a large budget phone at about 250 Â€ that performs really well all around with a few quirks and you have the time and energy to deal with these issues yourself, then go for it!
I hope this was helpful.
I really dislike mine. Heats up now and then. there are times when the screen will lock up and you can't open it. I'm stuck with it for awhile.
