LG’s G Flex, touted as the world’s first flexible smartphone, continues to make inroads in America, with T-Mobile becoming the latest U.S. carrier to offer the device.

CNET reported the G Flex “is like few other phones before it. Its 6-inch display is slightly curved, giving the handset a striking, even ambitious profile” that cuts down on glare and improves media experience. It also comes with a scratch-resistant coating and Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 800 processor.

CNET noted some drawbacks, including the fact that the G Flex’s 720 pixel screen lacks in clarity compared to some of its competitors, and the camera is “mediocre” and the size can be a bit unwieldy.

“It doesn’t quite have what it takes to surpass both the Galaxy Round or the current reigning king of phablet productivity, the Galaxy Note 3,” CNET reported.

For those looking for something a little less unwieldy, CNET and PCmag.com noted that T-Mobile also will offer the Optimus F3Q, which is equipped with a QWERTY keyboard and a 4-inch display.

“Each device is integrated with familiar LG-only features like QuickTheater for instant access to videos, photos, and entertainment apps, as well as QuickMemo, which lets users write or draw with their finger on any screen shot or photo,” PCmag.com reported.

T-Mobile is offering the G-Flex with zero down and 24 monthly payments of $28 under its Simple Plan. It is available for pre-order and will be in stores Feb. 5.

With T-Mobile's unlimited Simple Plan, the G Flex is zero down, with 24 monthly payments of $28; buyers will also have the choice to opt into a six-month Netflix trial. The Optimus F3Q is being offered at zero down with 24 monthly payments of $13. Both will be available next week.

LG said earlier that AT&T and Sprint had also signed on to offer its G Flex.
