Rated 4 out of 5 by LG convert product is feature packed and easy to use
I am a previous Galaxy S3 user and have owned the LG G Flex for a little over a month. I am by far not an expert on how to use it and I am figuring out new features every day. The ease of use and navigation of the features is very streamlined with a very simple UI. Cloud storage is very easy to integrate and access. The different keyboard layouts make it easier for all types of typing needs. Customization is very simplistic and easy to do. Although there isn't much storage available (32 gigs, about 25 gigs after initial setup) I find the cloud storage available more than adequate for files and photos. The 720P screen is a little bit of a bummer but I feel it is more than adequate for games and HD video watching. Besides, the best capability of this phone is how long it can go without having to be charged. The tap on feature is an added bonus but can be a little glitchy depending on position of the phone and ambient light. I could go on an on about all the features (Qslide, three finger swipe, split screen viewing, multiple Windows, etc.) but, I feel that the phone is a little lacking. The most annoying thing is that you can't use data while making a phone call. I am not sure if this is a Sprint Spark thing or a phone setting but I wish that would change. I also wish that the power button also acted like a scroll wheel for web page and document viewing kinda like the Blackberry Curve's sensor. I also hope that a new patch comes out to optimize the ram even more. Even with 2 gigs of ram I find myself constantly having to use the ram optimizer app that came preinstalled. There have been several times that I have gone as low as 300 megabytes of ram available. All I all I am very impressed with the phone and would recommend the LG G Flex to anyone.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Nicole915 Its just an average phone
This phone is nothing special. Its a good phone, dont get me wrong but if your looking for an amazing phone this is NOT it. There is nothing special... the camera is the worst camera i have ever dealt with. The battery does not last as long as it says the screen cracks easily and the whole "the cover heals itself" that is for VERY tiny scratched that you wouldnt even see until you were really looking at the back. Like i said its just average. LG makes just makes average phones.

Rated 4 out of 5 by biscuits12 Great Device for my internet needs
I like everything on the Flex, but the phone doesn't work so great. I miss most of my calls if a voicemail isn't left I don't know who calls. I have had sprint for years and had deadspots here and there but not like this. It has to be the phone bc my wifes HTC one works great right beside me...Oh well I needed it for the web surfing for work and email and they work great.

Rated 5 out of 5 Fast, functional and stylish
I've had my G Flex for about a month now, and so far it has been a stellar experience. Having previously used a Note 2 (that my wife is now enjoying), I am accustomed to larger screen devices. The G Glex is big, no doubt, but I honestly find it very comfortable to handle. The curve really helps, and where I often fumbled with my large Note 2, I don't really have that problem with the G Flex. This is partially due to the fantastic "one-handed use" features that LG has built into the UI. Whereas Samsung never really addressed the issue, LG really thought about the little details in using a large screen device and use the software to make one-handed use much easier.
Multitasking is EXCELLENT, much better than the Note. I don't miss my S-pen at all, and to be honest I really never used it much.
The device has plenty of power and speed, and I have seen zero slowdown or lag, even with many apps open in the background. The UI is clean and unlike Samsung there arent a ton of submenus of menus. In my opinion it is easier to use than my Note was.
Much has been made by bloggers about the screen on the G Flex being "only" 720p. But I gotta say...I just don't get it. The display is beautiful. I've shown it to many of my tech-savvy friends (network admins, graphic designers, etc) and they are surprised when I tell them the display is 720p. If 720p is sub-par, well...then this is the best 720p display I've ever seen. Don't let some Samsung troll tell you what you should like...look at the display FOR YOURSELF, and then decide.
The curve, while some are calling it a gimmick, really isn't one. The curve makes watching HD videos more immersive...it's subtle, and you have to actually see it to understand, but there is a reason movie screens (and now TVs) are curved. I have also NEVER had so many people comment on my phone before as they have with the G Flex. It's always something..."OMG, is your phone CURVED?!" I say Yep...I sat on it and smile. This device is dead sexy to look at and it definitely gets noticed. To some, that might be a drawback...I'm actually getting a little tired talking about it to it's many admirers.
In all I am VERY satisfied with the purchase and can't wait to see what LG does with the G Flex 2.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MikeyMikeyMike Nice phone
Great phone, I love the screen size and battery life. The home and volume buttons in the back is a "love it or hate it" feature. I suggest you play with this feature before you buy. Recommend this phone in spite of this feature.

I love this phone. It was the perfect choice for me. Everything about it is fluid and seamless. I have yet to come across any problems. This is a phone that will stay with me for a very long time. Thank you LG.

Rated 4 out of 5 by drpiotro Good but quirky
I had to decide between the Flex M8 and S5. For me it came down to availability. The others were released l gave this a shot. For just over $150 due to discounts and sales it was a good deal. The battery life is night and day when compared to a HTC evo 4g lte. The main gripe I have is with texting and autocorrect. HTC was great about predictive text. LG not so much. And if you do not get the word the first time you have to delete the entire word not just a few letters or else it will assume you are writing a new word.
