UK retailer Carphone Warehouse has announced availability of LG's new G Flex 2.

LG G Flex 2

LG's second generation curved phone, the G Flex 2, is finally hitting the market after being available for pre-order for a couple of weeks now. This time around LG has scaled the screen down to a 5.5-inch 1080p P-OLED display, but doesn't pull any punches with the specs — there's a Snapdragon 810 processor inside, along with a 3,000 mAh battery and 13-megapixel OIS+ camera with laser autofocus. The back of the G Flex 2 also features an improved version of LG's self-healing coating.

Our full review breaks down the good, the bad and the ugly of the device, so be sure to check that out if you're on the fence.

LG should be praised for shipping something no other manufacturer is even attempting at this point — a fully flexible smartphone that doesn't skimp on specs. But in doing so, it demonstrates the limitations of the technology involved. Including a flexible OLED display means you'll have to deal with slightly grainy images and brightness limits which make low-light use problematic. The self-healing back recovers from minor abrasions quickly, but is bizarrely more prone to heavier scratching than the back of the average smartphone.

Carphone Warehouse is offering the device for £34.50 per month or £529 if you prefer to purchase outright. While supplies last those who pick up the device on a monthly plan will receive an LG Bluetooth Speaker as well as the LG Quick Circle case along with the device.
