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.

DisReggae, 05 Jan 2016Did you upgrade to 5.1 via OTA? Or how did you do it? I'm still not getting any update. I'... moreThat's the problem bro you have att's firmware. You need to flash puerto rico's firmware and you will get the update rightaway. If you want further instructions you should check xda developers forum.
is heating an issue with this phone ? how bad is it ? camera / intense Display usage / Gaming makes the phone heat up?
Rockkkkkkoooonnnnnnn Lg G flex2 got 6.0 upgrade!!!!!Linkhttp://www.gsmarena.com/the_big_android_60_marshmallow_update_list_start_of_2016_edition-news-15786.php
Ravipk, 31 Dec 2015Just updated Android 5.1.1 , no heating though battery is still average. No lag at all.
Did you upgrade to 5.1 via OTA?
Or how did you do it?
I'm still not getting any update. I'm stuck on 5.0.1.
My model is H950 from at&t
Just bought it for my girlfriend. The phone is amazing. For that price it is the best option on the market.
1. Nice curved design. "Think different" (c) don't use mainstream soap brick design of iPhone 6x/Xiaomi/HTC A9/Lenovo/etc
2. POLED screen is good. If you look uncomfortably close and search for Pentile effect you can see it. Picture is absolutely clear and with great contrast in real life.
3. 5.5" screen is not so huge I thought, it feels like a good size for browsing/chat (I have "small" iPhone 5). If you feel you chat more than talk, don't be afraid of 5.x" phones!
4. Double tap to unlock works very well, you don't need to use power button. I'm not a fan of power button placement. With this big phone you put your index finger right on that power button. It is easy to adjust volume during call, I would say even better than classic placement, but I find it is more difficult to adjust volume watching videos or finding power button to lock phone while holding phone in landscape for example.
4. Battery lasts 2 days with moderate use, better than iPhone, but not excellent. Very good standby time, dropped 0% during night. It has fast charger included and it charges fast.
5. Snapdragon 810 runs good in real life scenarios. No lags, no overheating. I don't play games. It gets warmer while shooting 4k videos. I would say it is not perfect and you should wait for SD820, but for that price this the best you can get.
1. Selfhealing back cover does not really work. The back scratches easy and does not heal.
2. I don't like glossy plastic. It is NOT fingerprint magnet like black LG G2, but I would prefer different material. The phone looks nice while new though.
3. It is difficult to get a good case. Can anybody recommend one? Original LG Circle case is quite expensive and still glossy.
4. You need to buy a good/fast micro SD card. Slow sd card, can slow down the phone. I would say microSD card is a must have for a tablet, but I think fast internal memory is a better option for a phone.
5. Low light fotos/video could be better. I made a small test between Flex 2 and iPhone 5. I would say both cameras are not great in low light, G Flex 2 camera has a little bit more noise, but better focus. iPhone 5 shoots faster, you can shoot one after another, LG is slower if it is not in burst mode. Looks like iPhone does not really care about focusing, while LG tries to refocus after each shot.
I tried to highlight bad things. Currently I'm really happy with LG G Flex 2.
Just updated Android 5.1.1 , no heating though battery is still average. No lag at all.
I gave a Flex 2 to my girlfriend for Christmas, and we are both very pleased with this Phone. It´s a pleasure to use, specially because she had a insanely enerving Samsung Grand Prime prior to this. Double tab to wake and to sleep works great, the speaker is good, app and android runs pretty quick, even dough it´s full of features, and the best part, It was less the Â€300 for an one year old Flagship phone. All those nasty afirmations about Snapdragon 810 heating problems just helped to put the price down, and I cannot see this issue happening here. I have a Nexus 6 (cyanogenmod), and I am kind a jealous of her now. ;)
