Following Sprint’s release of the LG G Flex 2, US Cellular – the 5th largest US carrier – has announced that LG’s latest high-end handset will be available on its network starting March 26th.

The G Flex 2 will be priced at $149.99 with two-year contract, or you can go the monthly payment route and get it for $0 down with 20 monthly payments of $31.50. For those that prefer to buy the phone outright, US Cellular will offer the G Flex 2 for $630.

While the killer features here are the flexible display and the self-healing back, the G Flex 2 also offers up pretty solid specs, even if initial performance reviews haven’t been that flattering. For those who need a refresher, the LG G Flex 2 is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 64-bit Octa-Core processor coupled with an Adreno 430 GPU, backed by either 2 or 3GB RAM and 16 or 32GB storage. There’s also a 5.5-inch curved 1080p P-OLED display, a 13MP rear cam with OIS+, a 2.1MP front cam and a non-removable 3000 mAh battery.

Any US Cellular subscribers thinking of picking this one up?
