LG G Flex 2 Review – Features of LG G Flex 2

LG G Flex 2 is a smartphone introduced by LG a very few days ago in CES 2015 that features some very interesting features. This is actually the second generation of the LG G Flex phone that came to the market back in 2013. The device is furnished with a Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that is based on a quad core 2.0 GHz ARM Cortex processor. The device has two editions with 2 GB and 3 GB of RAM. The storage capacity can be selected from 16 GB and 32 GB while certain editions will support micro SD up to 2 TB even though in the market currently one cannot find such large SD cards. The phone has a length of 149 mm, width of 75 mm and the thickness takes between 7.1 mm to 9.4 mm due to the curve. The most special feature is the curved shapes where the phone takes a 23-degree arc lengthwise. The device is somewhat flexible where the curve can be straightened by applying a force , but it would revert back to the original shapes after a while. The display has a HD resolution of 1080p with a display size of 5.5 inches. The rear camera is a one with huge resolution of 13 megapixels, but the front camera is only 2.1 megapixels. The battery capacity is 3000 mAh and LG claims that the phone can charge by 50% in 40 minutes. The operating system on the device would be Android 5.0 Lollipop, which is the latest Android version.

Lenovo P90 Review – Features of Lenovo P90

Lenovo P90 is a smartphone very recently introduced by Lenovo in CES 2015. The very special thing about this phone is the processor. While most phones today uses ARM processors, this phone uses a 64 bit Intel Atom Processor. It is a quad core  processor with a frequency up to 1.83 GHz. The RAM capacity is 2 GB and the storage capacity is 32 GB. A probable issue is that the storage capacity cannot be expanded using a micro SD card so one will be limited to the available 32 GB internal storage. The device has dimensions of 150 x 77.4 x 8.5 mm and a weight of 156g. The device, which has a 5.5 inch display, has a high definition resolution of 1080p. The rear camera has a huge resolution of 13 MP and the front camera also has a much high resolution, which is 5 MP when compared to the LG G Flex 2. One interesting advantage is the huge capacity of the battery, which is 4000 mAh. This would provide a very good battery life for the phone. When the operating system is considered, it is a bit drawback that it does not use the latest Android operating system. It will ship with Android KitKat 4.4, but an upgrade to Android 5 Lollipop is soon expected.
