Hey this is an exciting day for me, the LG G Flex 2 I ordered on eBay is finally here. This is the world’s first smartphone with Qualcomm’s latest Snapdragon 810 Octa-core processor and also the world’s curviest phone.
This particular version is the original Korean model, which has additional features like LTE-A, DMB TV, and Korean localized bloatware, all of which won’t work here in the U.S. If you do get this particular Korean model, you can still get HSPA+ data fine on AT&T or T-Mobile, just LTE will not work as the LTE frequencies are different. So, let’s unbox this baby, huh!
Upon opening the box, you will find a sexy, curved 5.5-inch display. Last year when the Flex 1 came out, I wasn’t really sure about curved screens. But have you noticed how your local theater’s screen is curved? Well, at least mine is. After seeing a gazillion curved screens at CES 2015 last month, I do believe it finally makes sense to me. Think of it this way, the earth is not flat, your eyes are not flat, in fact, your eyes will see things better and naturally with curved screens, it’s science godammit!
Okay, onto the rest of the unboxing, inside the box you will also find sexy, curved earbuds with tangle-free rope wires. Yes, even the earbuds are curved, pretty cool, I should have a full review of these also.
LG Flex 2 also comes with LG’s first fast charge adapter rated at 5V 1.8A for normal charge and 9V at 1.67A for fast charge. The specs are actually nearly identical to the Note 4 fast charge adapter, I should have a detailed analysis on this too.
The Flex 2 comes with a removable cover along with microSD card slot, microSIM slot, and the battery is actually not removable. But no worries, I will find a way to replace the battery in my future disassembly video.
