Hello
now I got my second G Flex 2 and i was happy because there wasnt any yellow spot and now there are again there.
I like this phone really. The UI, that its curved and much more but I think the Display is very bad.
If I take my Note 3 side by side and start an lcd test where I choose an Grey Color, on the note 3 everything Looks perfect but on the g Flex it Looks like a bad Quality Display because the Colors are not the same and a few Areas are darker. You Need to look very Long and closely to see that.
If I set brightness lower and look on a White Screen I can see the yellow spots. But the biggest Problem is that the Grey dosent look clear.

Does anyone can confirm that or should I get a third one?

I didint know which Phone I would take.... every other phone is boring..

Your phone got much more and stronger yellow spots but it dosent should have any yellow spot.
I want an perfect Screen and give this phone only one last Chance.
I send it back today and hope for an new one with an good Display.
If it´s the same again, I think I get the One M9

It cost 10€ more a month and 30€ at the beginning.
For the G Flex 2 I pay 50€ a month and 1€ at the beginning. All net and 6GB LTE

Another user claimed that his replacement hasn't got that problem at all.

That´s nice to know.
My replacement had this issue too and now I get a new one.
I hope it arrives today or tomrrow.

First I didint see any yellow spot and was happy. After a few days I saw that on a Grey Screen the Colors dont look perfect.
Like with a bad backlight on a few spots. Last try for this phone :/

Get another device why you can, it seems most people are. I loved my flex 2 but it was just issue after issue for a new device. I had 2 of them before i went with the note 4

Well a little update for you all......

Replacement had exactly the same issue, so sent that back and kept the original one. I then went directly to the Vodafone shop. The 2 they had in stock had the same issue.

So I'm now conversing with LG directly.

I would suggest, in the UK at least, that anyone with an similar issue creates a ticket on their system and it may gain a bit more weight.
