NBC Bay Area's Scott Budman gives a preview of the G-Flex smartphone.
In a world of very similar smartphones trying to convince consumers that they're different (iOS! Android! Windows!), we found a phone that really does look different: The LG G-Flex.
What makes the G-Flex stand out, is its shape. It's curved, inside and out.
The ergonomics are unusual, to say the least, but quickly comfortable when you pick up the phone, or watch video on it.
"It fits ergonomically to your face, with the mic closer to your mouth," spokesperson Chaz Abbott said. "The sound is 3 decibels better."
Hey, 3 decibels, is 3 decibels, right?
You can call it a gimmick, but if you sometimes sit on your phone, or drop it, the G-Flex actually bends, so it really takes a lot to break it. It also claims the coating "self-heals," in case of scratches. Our test model was one of just a few in existence, so we didn't get a chance to try that claim.
