LG G Flex Hands on AA (5 of 19)

As expected, the LG G Flex has now landed on T-Mobile’s network, both in-stores and online. The LG G Flex can be yours for no down payment at all, though you will have to make 24 monthly payments of $28, or you can buy the handset outright for $672.

It goes without saying that the LG G Flex much more expensive than many other high-end Android devices, particularly when you consider that it’s 6-inch display has a resolution of 720p, instead of the now-standard 1080p found on most flagship devices.

Of course the saving grace is that the LG G Flex stands out in a crowd thanks to to its unique semi-flexible display. Whether that’s worth the extra cash is up to you. For those that need the refresher on the rest of the hardware, the G Flex is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 with 2GB of RAM. The device also packs a 13MP camera and a 3500 mAh battery.

Android users out there that are more interested in the idea of an Android device with a sliding QWERTY keyboard will be happy to know that today T-Mobile is also bringing out the LG Optimus F3Q.

Unfortunately, the LG Optimus F3Q isn’t exactly a powerhouse the handset and features a dual-core Snapdragon 400 CPU with 1GB of RAM. There’s also 4GB storage, a 4-inch 480×800 display, a 2460 mAh battery and Android 4.1 Jelly Bean.

While the specs are probably good enough for those with basic needs that absolutely want a sliding keyboard, the price isn’t particularly cheap. The LG Optimus F3Q can be yours for $312 outright, or $13 a month for 24 months.
