And yet, hand the G Flex to almost anyone, and they will immediately notice there is something very different about it, and I'm not talking about the buttons on the back.

The G Flex is one of two phones currently on the market to use a flexible OLED panel, the other being Samsung's Galaxy Round.

BLU Announces The Newest, Most Powerful Member Of The Life Series: Say Hello To The Life Pro [Hands On]

Back in April, I said that BLU "is a company to keep an eye on moving forward." A few months later, I reviewed (and loved) my first BLU device: the Life Play. Since then I've also taken a look at the Life View – the company's take on a large-screened phone – which was also very impressive for the cost. I'm definitely a fan of what BLU is doing right now, and the company seems to be keeping a nice momentum with the Life series.

The Xposed framework is a major boon to those of us who use an Android device that doesn't have a lot of support from the custom ROM community.
