The latest phone from LG is being projected by the company as the “shape of innovation”. To some extent, the LG G Flex is indeed a device with a difference as it pleasantly deviates from the very form of the smartphone as we know it. The curved display of the phone is its greatest USP.
The highly priced G Flex features a 6.0″ Curved P-OLED display with 720 x 1280 pixels, Snapdragon 800 processor, Quad-core 2.26 GHz Krait 400 CPU, 13 MP main camera, Li-Po 3500 mAh battery. The nice hardware comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat. Among all good things about the device, the quality of its display and camera focus issues remain as stains on its shiny aura.
Well, I do not own the LG G Flex but have had an opportunity to use the device for a couple of hours. It really feels good and draws people’s attention with its curved form-factor. The picture quality of the device might not stand up to our expectations but its audio quality is really good.
Good? Wait for a little! Our today’s post is about improving the audio quality of your LG G Flex. XDA member aznrice2k4 has come up with an amazing trick to enable Dolby Equalizer on LG G Flex.
