LG G Flex 2 now available at Sprint


As promised, Sprint has officially launched the LG G Flex 2. The G Flex 2 should be more popular based on size alone as the original G Flex was just too big. However, early reports of overheating issues could hamper it.

If you want to take a chance at this cutting edge phone, you can grab it at Sprint starting today for $504 outright or 24 easy monthly payments of $21. You can also buy it on contract for $199 after a $50 mail-in-rebate. You have your choice of Volcano Red (exclusive to Sprint) or Platinum Silver.
