Sprint has announced that it will begin offering the LG G Flex 2 on March 13th. People with their hearts set on this curved poster child will be able to place a pre-order starting tomorrow, February 20th. The phone will go for twenty-four payments of $12 or $504 altogether, and it will be available in Platinum Silver or Volcano Red (a Sprint exclusive).
The G Flex 2 isn't quite the sequel to last year's model that you would expect. For starters, it's smaller and now sports a 5.5-inch display, half an inch smaller than the previous model. This is one time a manufacturer can't say that this year's model is larger than last year's, and we're glad.
On paper, the G Flex 2 is a perfectly competent phone. It has a 2.0GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 3,000mAh battery, and a microSD card slot. It also comes with Android Lollipop. Nevertheless, the phone isn't without its quirks, which you can read about in David Ruddock's review.
