  • I'm devastated that LG exited the market. They've been my manufacturer for almost my entire smartphone use. My first Android was an LG Optimus S. Went Samsung Galaxy for a while, then I went back to LG for the Nexus 5. Been using nothing but LG since. The Stylo, Stylo 2, Stylo 4, and now I'm writing this on my G8 Thinq (which I love passionately.) LG, I'm sorry to see you go. You've been solid as hell.

  • LG Smartphone was dead because of their marketing strategy, but some other blame for their softwares which is slow down devices performance. But only best part of LG Smartphone is HiFi QuadDac, which is great to enjoy the sound.

  • Working in a phone store I've never recommended an LG phone since the G3 indeed. There was no thing that you could really sell someone on their phones esspeically compared to all the other brands in the market.

  • I love my LG G8X ThinQ Dual Screen and about to pass it down to my son and upgrade to the LG V60 ThinQ 5G Dual Screen. Battery life is the best of all the phones I've ever own.

  • This is making me think of my pebble. All smartwatch reviewers are STILL reminiscing over the pebble (I've been watching, and it's still the best). I wonder if LG will receive any similar, lasting reminiscence.

  • I switched from my LG phone to an iPhone when my LG phone broke under warranty, and customer service said they couldn’t fix it because they were no longer producing parts for my phone. Like WTF. At least I can just walk into an Apple store, and 100% know they’ll be able to help me if something goes wrong with my phone.

  • Their phones just aren’t very reliable. I work for a cell phone carrier and I have worked here for years and it’s in this company‘s DNA to tell customers not to buy LG phones because they come back bricked

  • LG made by far the ugliest android phones. There were some fucking BLU/ZTE/budget tracphones that looked nicer than most high end LG stuff. They always felt like they were made to look "futuristic" to someone from 2002.

  • Like i said on mr.mobile's video double tap to wake was firs introduced by Nokia on the N9 witch was a werry rare phone because it was launched a few weeks before moving to windows phone but my god the nokia n9 was incredible and it was also the firs with swipe gestures like everyone has now it came with meego os witch later became tizen

  • So why can you not recommend the g8 only do to the hand gesture but the same sensor /hand movement is on the pixel 4xl Take that movement away did the g8 rival the s10 or s20? Then the V60 you can not recommend why? Has 4 mics on it the dac and a 5k mah battery 60hertz vs 90 hertz is personal preference and most gaming phones have been rocking 90hrtz way b4 this yr you remember the razor or the magic to name. Few all the phone you do recommend are over 800!! Oh I'm writting this on a PH-1 that you probably would not recommend but was 1st to com out with a Notch and screen to body ratio was crazy

  • Also going to miss LG because it was a phone produced in a free Nation. I just can't bring myself to the idiodicy of buying a phone based out of a place where I know their number one goal is data espionage. So I have not been able to join the lemmings club of cheap phones that look great but come at a cost. Dwindling my phone options down more and more every year

  • lg had 60hz display to favour battery life over high refresh. now do I feel LG could have made a good high refresh rate display and still have a good battery? I do. Do I feel that was L.G's style? no I don't. still GG LG you tried (and made damn good phones) but your marketing let you down. Thanks for the good releases v30 user

  • i had a G3, it was my and my family's first ever smartphone for each of us because Verizon had a deal which basically gave us the phone for free. Maybe that's why it's considered their most popular smartphone.

  • I sell phones for a major carrier and most all the sales reps I talk to try to convince people to not get LG phones because customers always came back to return them or had issues. It was honestly kind of relief that when we heard that they were shutting down they’re phones.

  • LG's marketing problem is using the same marketing they used in Asia for North America and the European market. People in NA and Euro audience are very different from the Asian counterpart. In case people don't know this LG stands for "Life's Good" and it's a Korean company, just like Samsung. Unlike Samsung, LG used an Asian Marketing firm, but Samsung hired an American-based marketing firm like the big guys and separated their Asian market campaigns. This is probably why no one really thought "LG V60 ThinQ 5G | Dual Screen", needed to be simplified. Asian marketing is very descriptive. In America, people have a short attention span, they just care about eye candy commercials and Camera features on their phones. Probably why "G2 and G3" sold very well, when it was shortened. But I hope this trend doesn't continue where all smartphone companies bow out because of lack of market share. Because I don't want to be in a world where I only have between Samsung and Apple to choose from. Cause if that happens it's gonna be Apple and Windows all over again and they're gonna just start making commercials about trash-talking each other like they did when "Mac Guy vs PC Guy" back then with Justin Long.

  • Guess, every reviewer are just telling us that, LG was a first in innovating most of the things, but somehow didn't stress that out every time they were reviewing out LG phones, about the build quality in comparison with other companies with respective to price range. Well, they didn't have better PR management and didn't know what to highlight while marketing their phones and the naming of the phone too was not helping.

  • I've had a V60 ThinQ for a year so far. I've had to return it because of a faulty USB port that failed within 3 months of ownership. Got it replaced by warranty and now the new one is having the same issue. I really enjoyed LG phones I had the G3, G6, and now the V60. Great phone but this issue has me looking to buy a new phone, if the battery life on the V60 wasn't amazing I would have switched away sooner.

  • I've been loyal to LG for 10 years! Their phones are amazing and super durable. Even now as I write this I am still using my LG G5 phone. But I always hated their lame marketing strategy. As you say it was always "forgettable". They should have been more aggressive and creative in the campaigns.

  • Since the Optimus 3D I gave up LG. Why? UPDATES! They broke our phones with one update resulting in ghost calls , promised to fix in future update which never came. Phones became useless. They never cared about customers so they got what they deserved. Not really heroes in my opinion, not in the phone category. They do make great TV’s and other appliances, I would still buy any of their other products, but never a LG phone.
