Conclusion

The G Flex 2 seems like it’s the kind of phone that would live or die by its striking design, but the truth is that it’d be fantastic with or without its curves. Its unique build is both sturdy and comfortable to hold, and its display, performance, and camera are all competitive with any other flagship on the market. The Snapdragon 810’s heating issues are tangible, and being unable to change the included battery is a drag, but neither of those problems prevent the G Flex 2 from being one of the first great smartphones of 2015.

    About your LG G flex 2 review, nowhere can I find a 3GB ram version for sale; not sprint and even LG said it doesn’t exist today.

    “Furthermore, LG has ditched the RGB matrix from the original G Flex in favor of a diamond-shaped PenTile setup here, allowing all of those pixels to have four of their own sub-pixels and a RGBG arrangement. In non-techie terms, this has vastly improved the coloring of the display”

    That’s not what Pentile does at all. RG/BG Pentile is a cheap trick to produce less-sharp display and still be able to sell it as a particular resolution, based on the outdated standard of defining resolution by contrasting line pairs instead of individual fully-colorable squares, The G Flex 2’s display isn’t Full HD. It’s not even some sort of lesser-full-HD-but-still-full-HD type deal, it’s literally not Full HD because it does not have 1920×1080 individual fully-colorable squares.
