We have some interesting news for US based consumers who are interested in the LG G Flex. The LG G Flex, the next-gen curved flagship device from LG has cleared the FCC test and is now available for purchase in the United States.
The LG G Flex is definitely one of the most interesting and innovative Android smartphones available in the market today. The smartphone has been getting a lot of attention and sales in its home country, and the handset has now arrived in the United States.
We know this news will come to you as a positive surprise, but there is another side to this coin. The LG G Flex has been heavily priced in North America. You will need to spend more than $1000 in order to get your hands on the LG G Flex. That’s even more than the price at which you can get the unlocked version of Apple iPhone 5S as well as two unlocked Motorola Moto G handsets!
A number of retailers in the United States are offering the LG G Flex, but none of them seem to have given any real good discount. So if you are really interested in this smartphone, then we suggest that you take a look at the offers provided by various retail stores.
Overseas Electronics is offering the LG G Flex for a high price of $1050. The retailer has confirmed that the LG G Flex stock is available with it and that the smartphone will support LTE-A networks on the 850 and 1800 bands. The bad news is that these bands are of no use in the United States, so you might have to compromise on 3G only. Hence be sure to check about this if and when you go check out the handset.
Negri Electronics is also offering the LG G Flex, but at a price that’s even higher than the one put up by Overseas Electronics. Negri Electronics is offering the LG G Flex for $1109.50, but it’s actually a pre-order thing, so you won’t get the smartphone right away. This retailer offers you to choose between two models of the LG G Flex, the KT Telecom version and SK Telecom version. Even though the former has support for some of the LTE bands used in the United States, we suggest that you take great care before investing so much money into this device.
We know that you already must have made up your mind to not go and get the LG G Flex right away! But if you are still crazy about this smartphone and want to spend your money on it, we have some really important and useful suggestion for you.
So we sincerely suggest that you wait for the LG G Flex to official make an entry into the US market. Even if this is the smartphone that you want to get (no matter what), it would be better to buy a version that has specially been made for your region! This way you won’t have to worry about any network problems and will comfortably be able to use 4G LTE speeds.
Alternately, if you are open to options, we would suggest that you simply explore the market and check out some other smartphones that can be yours for a price much lesser than $1000. You can check out the Apple iPhone 5S, Nokia Lumia 1020, Nokia Lumia 1520, Samsung Galaxy Note 3 or even the Samsung Galaxy Round!
