CES 2015 Hands On: LG G Flex 2

LG yesterday announced the G Flex 2, its latest high-end smartphone, and today I had a chance to get some decent hands on time with it. The name is however a bit of a misnomer as the G Flex 2 is much less flexible than the G Flex. That’s not to say it doesn't still have a little bit of bend to it, but that's predominantly for increasing the handset's durability.

The other big change from the original G Flex is that the G Flex 2 is now smaller, but has a higher resolution screen. Boasting a 5.5-inch, 1080p display, the G Flex 2 certainly isn't a small phone, but it's not larger either. LG have used a similar design to the G3, last's year flagship, in the sense that there's a minimal amount of bezel. The G Flex 2 also features the same rear-facing buttons, and runs the same customised version of Android, albeit upgraded to Lollipop. This means features like Knock Code and Gesture Shot make an appearance.
