LG G Flex 2 can be yours for just $250, in new condition!

lg g flex 2 unboxing aa (2 of 31)

Last month well-known Ebay seller qualitycell offered up the LG G Flex 2 for just $290 in brand new condition. That was a hell of a price for a Snapdragon 810-powered device that isn’t even quite a year old yet. If you didn’t jump on it then, you’ll be happy to know it is back for even cheaper at $250!

While the LG G Flex 2 is attractive, if a little odd looking, it has a bit of reputation problem that has probably helped push its price tag down. When the device first hit the market, it was associated heavily with all the 810 overheating drama, and many reviews noted that LG’s UI was more than a little sluggish (ours included). Through a combination of throttling (something we are, unfortunately, seeing on all 810-based devices to at least some degree) and bug fixes in the software, the LG G Flex 2 is reportedly a much more stable and enjoyable device than when it first shipped but the damage to its rep is already done.

If you aren’t trying to win any popularity contests for your phone and simply want something with 2015-level specs that should last you a while, it is hard to ignore the G Flex 2 at this price. For those keeping score, this significantly undercuts even low-cost champions like the OnePlus 2, OnePlus One, and the Moto X Style (aka Moto X Pure Edition). The pricing is instead more on the level of the Asus ZenFone 2 or the Alcatel OneTouch Idol 3, and yet should easily outperform both of them.

While the version up for sale is designed for AT&T, and thus carries its branding, an unlocked code is included and the phone is in brand new condition. For those that need a refresher, in addition to a Snapdragon 810 processor, the phone offers 3GB RAM, a 5.5-inch 1080p curved display, 32GB storage with microSD, and a 3000 mAh battery. The front cam is a 2.1MP shooter, while the rear is a 13MP OIS camera with laser autofocus and support for 4K recording.
