The LG G Flex has been given a release date from three of the largest mobile phone carriers. Sprint, AT&T, and T-Mobile have all begun the pre-order process and have set the dates that the new phone from the South Korean company will ship.
The LG G Flex will be available from Sprint on January 31st. It is available for pre-order now at $299.99 with a contract. AT&T was the last to announce their date, informing their customers that the phone will release on February 4th. AT&T users can purchase their LG G Flex now for the $299.99 price with a contract. AT&T also offers customers the opportunity to buy the new phone for the full price point of $649.99. T-Mobile, the “un-carrier”, offers the most unique option for customers. For $0 down, consumers can make 24 monthly payments of $28, as well as get a 6-month subscription to Netflix. T-Mobile will release the LG G Flex on February 5th, but it is available for pre-order now as well.
So why should you pick up the LG G Flex? That’s the joy of the smartphone market, there is no shortage of options. But some of the features available in LG’s flexible phone might convince you to take your chances. At the 2014 CES, it become clear that curved and flexible smartphone technologies are the next wave. Not everyone is thrilled about this, but the G Flex certainly has the ability to persuade even the harshest skeptic. The flexible design allows the phone to be malleable and pop back into shape even if you sit on it. Perfect for those users who are hard on phones.
The specs on the LG G Flex are fairly notable as well. Featuring one of the fastest processors on the market, the 2.3-GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor with 2GB of RAM will give users blazing speeds and allow them to utilize the dual windows feature without much slow down. It is important to note that LG has made the design decision to put their buttons on the back of the phone, utilizing all of the six inches for its OLED HD display. It is a fairly large phone, even with the curve, so make sure you are interested in a “phablet”.
