The beautiful LG G Flex is helping to keep me "well rounded." LG's tagline 'The Shape of Innovation' is certainly true.
My LG G Flex arrived and today, so I get to set it up and put it through some preliminary paces. My first impression: WOW, it's large. I mean really large! Okay, to be fair, it's not as large as the Galaxy Mega. But if you've read my previous posts, you know I've carried and tested several of Sprint's "phablet" category devices; namely the Galaxy Note II and Galaxy Note 3. The G Flex almost makes those devices seem "normal" by comparison.
Let's open up the box and take a look inside.
Right on top is the beautiful G Flex device lying in wait, face up. Pay close attention to the warning label. It clearly states the battery is embedded (i.e. non-removable) and the device has 32 GB of on-board storage with no support for MicroSD storage expansion.
Under the top shelf is the standard stuff: Getting Started guide and old device recycle bag. Under that is the Energy Efficient USB wall/travel charger and USB charge/sync cable. No headphones. No SIM removal tool. That's it for what comes in the box. Let's get the G Flex out and see what The Shape of Innovation looks like.
The Shape of Innovation is...curved. The curve is top to bottom so it fits your face more naturally.
I compared the physical size of the G Flex (right / top) to the Galaxy Note 3 (left / bottom). The G Flex is a little longer.
The G Flex is just a smidge wider than the Note 3.
Okay, it's time to get it set up and activated. I'll write another post soon to cover my first use impressions. Keep checking back to this space for more tips, tricks and features.
