    Back Buttons/Smooth sides?

    Missing my GoPhone Pheonix 2 since 'upgrading'. The volume/power buttons on the back and tap-to-wake features being key. Looking for a little upgrade in the guts, what is out there with improved processor/storage specs that has those features? I see the G4 was the last in the flagship series before they went back to the side buttons. Looks good except for poor battery life and lack of water resistance. A smaller/lower res screen would be okay and help the battery, but not expecting something with ip68. Anything else? I want something I can grab and stick in an X-cradle without jumbling the controls every time...

    Me too. I REALLY liked my LG G Flex 6" 16:9 curved screen, back buttons. ROM development stopped or else I'd still be rocking it. I hate 18:9 & skinnier screens.

    Those Flexes look to have the specs I'm looking for. What do you mean "ROM development stopped"?

    Unfortunately I'm also looking for a CDMA phone and the Flex and Flex 2 are showing as GSM only...

    The mod developers stopped writing current Android versions for the G Flex. GIYF. Rooting & flashing ROMs. If not I would have used my G Flex forever.

    What version of Android did they take it to? I like what I've seen of the Flex and the Flex 2 and might consider going to GSM with it, but it looks to be a rare phone that was well liked so not seeing bargains for it on eBay.

    Don't remember but I think it was 5 or 6. And it was a convoluted rooting process.
