kopi78, 14 Jan 2016Hi to all,
I have doubt about choosing between Sony Lumia Z3 and LG G FLEX 2, bot have good s... moreI have two friends one with Xperia Z3 one with Flex 2. I can ask and compare. What do you want to know?
You are right, both phones has pros and cons, there is no clear winner.
-Z3 is more fragile - both front and back glass cracked after the first drop. You probably want to wear a case, so premium feel is on paper only. But there are more nice cases for Sony than for LG Flex 2 on the other hand.
-You can choose design yourself. I like how Z3 looks and feels without a case, yes, it feels premium, but I like curved design of Flex 2 and don't like glossy plastic. Winner Z3 with no case, Tie if case is used.
-CPU is better in Flex 2, 20nm vs 28nm, more raw power. Both phones like to become warm. I feel Z3 is warmer a little bit
-Display: Flex2 has OLED - best contrast and viewing angles. Color accuracy is not great on both phones. Flex2 has Pentile, if it is a problem for you on 1080p display - Z3 is a better choice. Z3 is brighter, Flex2 has better sunlight contrast according to GSMarena
-Software: I like Sony skin better cause it is closer to stock Android. But I can confirm that after recent update that there are no lags/reboots/overheating with Flex2
-Camera: Flex2 has OIS, Z3 has better Mpix. I heard that Flex2 camera is good with good light and so-so in dark conditions. I think that 13-16Mpix is more than enough, each photo takes more space and you will never resize them in real life.
Check GSMarena camera test. Flex2 has camera from LG G3, Z3 camera is closer to Z2 in the test probably.
If camera is important check Samsung S6 or LG G4, both are better performers.
-Price: Z3 costs around 380eur and LG Flex2 250eur in my country.
Hi to all,
I have doubt about choosing between Sony Lumia Z3 and LG G FLEX 2, bot have good sides and bad sides...
LG G FLEX 2 have better raw power, bigger screen,IR port...
Sony Lumia Z3 have premium built aluminum body, waterproof, 20Mp camera, camera button, more 3Gb RAM ...
I have wonder which have better screen (contrast,brightness,punchy colors...)???
Now I'm using Samsung ATIVs with great AMOLED display and my criteria are high :)
Also I take a lot of snap photos with my mobile so also camera is important to me so which camera is better???

Animesh, 08 Jan 2016Hi thanx for the opinion and I am planning to buy is it worth ??? I really scared of that 810 ... moreI have 2G/16Gb version with 64Gb sdcard.
The phone is not perfect, it can be better. I would prefer LG G4 over G Flex 2 because of leather back, better camera and mainstream model, but the price of LG G Flex 2 is amazing.
There is no real competitor with this price, chinese brands maybe, but I'm not sure about software quality of chinese phones.
If you can wait for a year (when prices come down), you can do that and wait for SD820, fingerprint scanner, better camera, USB type-c, etc. But for now, this is the best option for the buck.
Again, I don't play games, but currently I see no signs of overheating. No lags.
LG G Flex 2 has interesting speaker - you can't really mute it with your hand, sound loudness is almost the same level if you close speaker hole on the back, in contrast to iPhone for example.
Battery life with heavy usage - 1 day. Moderate usage - 2 days. Still don't like glossy construction, prefer Nexus 5 like plastic, but do like curved design, I find it really nice (personal preference).
I always say: if you want to use a case with your phone it does not matter what material your phone is made of.
I hope for durability of LG G Flex 2 cause it has curved screen by design and should survive better if dropped. I think LG V10 (with more durable screen) is the right direction.
Is there any news about when will the successor of this phone will be?
I have a huge interest in buying this phone so I wanted to know if it has a reliable enough performance with the snapdragon 810 issues
Does this phone has a the option 1080p@60fps after the 5.1.1 update??. Gsmarena says it only have 1080p@30fs in their review. Thanks
Anonymous, 08 Jan 2016is that the 32GB? (php 10,000). wow that was cheap!. THANKSYes it is the 32gb But it only has 2gb of rams (which is more than enough) because it is a Korean Model.
the LG G Flex 2 will heat much when using 3g and LTE Data, It also heats up in the usual type when playing heavy games like others phone do. So its better to use wifi than 3g data.
If you pud a jelly case on it, you wont notice the overheating
I was scared of buying this phone due to glitches of SD810.. however I bought with lollipo with 5.0.1 which was disaster with hot and lag issues. finally same day i received 5.1.1 update and now there is no lag and no problem of hot/throttling. I really like the screen and curve size.
Screen brightness is better than G3.
Phone is very fast i checked with Moto x play and Mi4 ... these phone were much away from LG G flex in terms of speed and multitasking.
Animesh, 08 Jan 2016Hi thanx for the opinion and I am planning to buy is it worth ???
