LG G Flex 2 Goes on Sale for Less than $200


lg-g-flex-2-at&t
When the LG G Flex 2 was unveiled to the public last year, it caused quite a stir in the smartphone industry. With its curved and flexible design, it broke the norm and started a revolution for users who want a reliable device. It was also recognized as the first Android smartphone to be equipped with a 5.5-inch P-OLED display, 64-bit octa-core 2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, and DDR4 RAM. Internally, the phone is available with a built-in memory of 32GB and a microSD card for up to 128GB memory expansion.

To take pictures, the G Flex 2 comes with a 13MP camera on the back with Dual LED flash and 4K quality video recording. A secondary camera is available in front with a 2.1MP sensor. On the back of the device is a fast-charging non-removable 3000mAh Li-Po battery with a self-healing back panel cover. Colors available include Platinum Silver and Flamenco Red. At the time of its release, the price of the G Flex 2 was $500 (CDMA model) and a little over $700 (GSM AT&T model).

A year later and the price has dropped significantly. For a limited period, you can get an unlocked LG G Flex 2 from AT&T for only $199.99 shipped from Daily Steals. Just like when it was first introduced, the device runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop. There are reports, however, that a Marshmallow update for the G Flex 2 is in the works. But since the device is dependent on AT&T for software updates, you might not be able to get Android 6.0 on the device if you take it to another carrier.

This is quite a big steal so if you've been considering getting the device, now is the best opportunity to buy it. Although the phone is technically new, you might be surprised to find that the box has already been opened. AT&T however explains that this was done in order to unlock the phone. There's no word on how this will impact warranty so it may be wise to check with Daily Steals before you order.

    1. Translation - LG really works hard, but their failed marketing strategy causes them to lose customers.

    2. And their boneheaded user-hostile misplacement of the volume buttons (yes, I have an LG phone like that, and it is bad in this even if everything else is great) really turns people off.

      The Best Buy near me still has the cord-tethered demo LG G3 phone that is so funny. Because of LG's design blunder, they can't attach the sticky pad to the center of the back, and it is stuck to the center of the phone's front instead.

  2. The AT&T dependent updates kill this deal. I bought an unlocked AT&T branded LG G2 last year and the phone would never update to Lollipop from Kit Kat. Why does AT&T do this?

    1. Two words: Root. Cyanogenmod. (Stop depending on AT&T to do it).

    2. Not sure what the problem was for you, but AT&T certainly did provide a Lollipop update. I'm with H2O Wireless, which is on the AT&T network, and bought an LG G2 a few months ago. The Lollipop 5.0.2 update was available within a couple of weeks of purchase, and has worked well ever since I installed it.

  4. Hi Dennis,
    If you take an AT&T-branded phone to T-MOBILE or a T-MOBILE MVNO, will you be able to get the update? ( My guess is NO!) ... But will you be able to get the update if you take that phone to an AT&T subsidiary, i.e. CRICKET, or an AT&T MVNO, i.e. H20?
    Thanks!

    1. In my experience AT&T phones do get updates if you have an active AT&T MVNO SIM in them. I got updates on an AT&T Nokia Lumia 920 with a RedPocket SIM and on an AT&T Samsung Note 4 and LG G4 with a TracFone GSM BYOP SIM. None of the phones would update with a T-Mobile or T-Mobile MVNO SIM or with an inactive AT&T SIM.

    2. Thanks for the information ( ... It was my hunch that THAT would be your answer...)... And by the way, you have pretty much the Top-of-the-Line ANDROID phones with the NOTE 4, LG G4, and NOKIA...Pretty Smart way to go!

      Delete
    3. Your welcome. I normally use lower end phones. The Nokia was a review unit back in the day, the Note 4 I won in a raffle and the G4 I won in a photo contest. Yes, I've been been very lucky lately.

    4. If you want an update badly enough to spend a bit of cash, you could always buy a cheap SIM card for, say, H2O Wireless ($0.99 on Amazon or eBay) and activate it with $10 on a Pay-as-you-Go plan. It lasts for 90 days, so should be enough time for the update to happen. (Just make sure there is an AT&T update available for your phone!)

    5. A PureTalk SIM and the $5/month Simple Plan is $2 less than AirVoice or H20 if you want the upgrade.

  5. I'm shocked it's not Tmobile, not. This phone would be $566 through Tmobile.

  6. Can you borrow a friends sim card to do the update?

    1. Yes, the TracFone card I use to update my phones belongs to my wife.

    2. Dennis, I also wanted to do something similar with a verizon G3. I am on tracfone and it won't update. Could I use a friends SIM in it to update? If so, would a verizon prepaid SIM work?

      Delete
    3. Yes you can use a borrowed SIM with Verizon. Prepaid or postpaid shouldn't matter.

  7. I recently bought the Nexus 6 @ $249 and have been very disappointed. I wish I had waited for the LG G Flex 2.

    1. Love my Nexus 6 (in fact, I'm on my second one after I accidentally took my first for a swim) and it gets updates directly from Google. It also gets Google's monthly security updates.

      Delete
  8. It's a shame Google released Android 5.0.1 then 5.1 ... Which one does the GFlex have?

    Not a nexus and no cm11 or cm12 support (for Google Security patches, Feb 2016 is a big one) is a deal breaker for me.

    Fire Phone is still my daily driver, and even without Prime, its a great deal for $109.

    1. Android 5.1.1 is available for the AT&T G Flex 2.

  9. I have been CRAVING this phone since I saw the first Flex debut. I'm waiting for Boost Mobile to offer their G Flex 2 for $199 as its currently going for $329, that's just too much for that old of a device in my opinion.

  10. boost mobile service outage reported from parts of maryland, may be fixed today.

  11. I would buy one but only if I had my choice of Red. That the one I really want not Silver that everbody else has.

  12. Has anyone used the Flex 2 on Tracfone BYOP?

  13. Can this phone be taken to Cricket? Has anyone bought a phone off of Daily Steals? If so, how did it go?

    1. It's an AT&T phone so it will work fine on AT&T's Cricket.
      I ordered a phone from Daily Steals several years ago. It took them a couple of weeks to ship the phone. When it finally arrived it was new in a factory sealed box as described.
