LG G Flex Hands on AA (15 of 19)

On the heels of LG’s G Flex smartphone launch into 20 European countries this month, Canadians will be getting their crack at this curvy device this spring. Rogers’ customers will be the only ones enjoying it for now, as a Rogers has snagged the exclusive rights to it for the Canadian market.

The LG G Flex is a full curved device, including the world’s first curved battery, designed to match the curvature of the human face. It will sport a dual-band LTE radio, capable of realistic speeds up to 40Mbps with a 150Mbps theoretical maximum. The G Flex is also equipped with a self healing back cover, for those minor nicks and scratches. Under the hood, the handset is powered by a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 CPU with 2GB of RAM. Other specs include a 13MP rear cam, a 6-inch 720p display and a 3500 mAh battery.

No word on pricing or exact release date yet, but this high-end device sells for a premium elsewhere around the globe. If you want to get your hands on the G Flex, head over to the Rogers Reservation System. For those that aren’t sure if the LG G Flex is right for you, be sure to check out our full review.

Are you a Canadian user that is excited about the G Flex’s curved design, or do you think it is just another high-end phone wrapped in a gimmicky shell?

    I’m canadian…but I think that the phone is not ” a big deal”….i don’t think that is worth the price! Plus LG and the updates…

      You might not think it’s a ‘big deal’ but check one out in person when you have a chance – and then come to your own conclusion. Still one of my personal favorites and it has absolutely unbelievable battery life due to its P-OLED display.

    I think if you are going to critique the aesthetics of something, you should know how to spell the word ‘aesthetics’. Pick up a dictionary in the future and you might sound like you know what you’re talking about.

    Somewhat interested in the g flex, but won’t be buying one. Same reason I didn’t buy the moto g even though I wanted to get each of the kids one. Canadians get screwed once again by an exclusive to a carrier bullshit. That and its probably a “canadian” version that is modified just enough to make custom roms not work on it.
