Hot Style, Hot Skills, Hot Curves: The New LG G Flex 2
Always on the trail of the newest smartphone, we’re excited to be invited to the media launch of LG G Flex2, the new and improved version of the original G Flex (otherwise known as the world’s first curved smartphone). Not only do we get to see LG G Flex2 before its official launch, the venue chosen – Ku Dé Ta at Marina Bay Sands’ Sky Park – was another reason to jump at the opportunity.
Stylishly adorned in splashes of red, the place was abuzz with media friends who were equally excited to witness the moment LG G Flex2 took centrestage.
Bang, Marketing Manager for Mobile Communications at LG Electronics, gave an entertaining introduction to G Flex2. Lots of information about its design and features helped us understand the technology behind the stunning new phone, which came in useful when we were, like school kids let out at recess, finally given the green light to try out G Flex2.
When it comes to a new smartphone, I believe the question on everyone’s minds is this: How good is it, and is it better than my current one? With that in mind, I explored the G Flex2, and really liked its ease of use, speed and sharp visuals. Firstly, its crisp images tell you that this is a smartphone with superior GPU. Secondly, it’s incredibly intuitive – Glance View displays key information such as the time and any message/call notifications with a downward swipe of the screen. Thirdly, everything is fast, thanks to the Snapdragon 810 processor featuring 64-bit CPUs for optimized performance.
Ku Dé Ta is known for their fine dining and entertainment, paired with a breathtaking view overlooking Singapore’s cityscape. There was definitely good food galore, with finger foods and desserts, but the biggest treat was getting to play with LG G Flex 2 first-hand. If you’ve ever fumbled with a new phone to take selfies (I know I have), you’ll be impressed with how easy it is to take a selfie – and to delete it swiftly if it turns out unflattering.
To take a selfie, just flash your palm and make a fist to trigger the timer (a feature LG calls Gesture Shot). After taking the shot, you’ll want to preview the picture, so Gesture View automatically offers a photo preview as you bring the phone down.

LG G Flex2 won’t be ready for sale until 14 March 2015, but be quick and place a pre-order from this Friday onwards. Or how about winning yourself one at an upcoming LG event, SupersizeMe @ The Big Picture?
Everybody loves taking selfies, so don’t miss the chance to take a Supersized one at LG’s largest selfie projection event. Selfies you take will be beamed onto Suntec’s The Big Picture, where you can take a selfie with your selfie (isn’t that a mouthful), and stand a chance to score a brand new LG G Flex2 smartphone of your own!
