    The reliability problems with the G3 altered my perception of LG QC and reliability forever. It probably wasn't warranted for the last several years but the bias remained regardless.

    I have actually used a Nexus 4, which was made by LG back in 2013; it broke a month after I got it. My mom had an LG G4 and she hated that thing. So yeah, it wasn't ROfilmrs that killed off LG smartphones, but rather them being cumbersome to use for novices and just overall shoddy workmanship just to push the envelope forward in innovation. Still, those LG feature phones from the 2000's were so iconic!

    That is so stupid saying that their main line was risky one. Everything what other brand phones has, lg also had and it worked great, except telefoto lens. They just add beside that something new. And that doesn't mean if that new thing didn't work perfect, that standard thing doesn't work good to, becouse they work as great as at other brands. But no, people like you were "oooh look at that stupid vane sensor it doesn't even work.. and you all focused on that rather then on good things like you do with Samsung or other brand. After 2 years i still have perfectly good no scratched lg g7 and people are allways asking me with what i make photos so it is good i guess. And phone is still fast like it was not like my brothers iphone wich was slow as f... after two years. And beside thousands of drops on the flor becouse of short pockets on some tracksuit, it still works great and no damage, like my friends samsung galaxy s10, 20, 20 ultra with cracked back or display.. It was just Lg marketing problem. And you didn't helped them eather, you rather bashing them 3/4 review with focusing on some new things that didn't work so good. And samsung galaxy s20 ultra is longer name then lg g7 thinq. So thats also whatever statement.

    LG lost me back from when I had an Optimus Sol. It had an ultra amoled display. Very bright and vivid. Nice phone. Problem is that they promissed to update it (along with other models) to a newer android and they failed to keep their end of the deal. Since then I have never bought an LG again. You can't do your customers like that and expect zero repercussions

    Why did LG phones really die? Because reviewers like Marques would hammer them for being "just another boring slab", and then hammer them for trying weird, off the wall crap. The LG G6 was a better phone than what Samsung offered that year. The LG G4 was a better phone than what Samsung offered that year. The G6 got crapped on because that was the second year that Samung went all in on the curved screen, which served no logical purpose whatsoever, but because it was the new hotness, it had to be a better phone, despite the LG having better cameras and better battery life. LG had better sound quality for literally ten years, and reviewers just brushed that aside and was like "yeah, it sounds good, but that's not gonna make it better than this curved screen that you can't put a screen protector on!"

    LG exiting the game is everyone's loss. They innovate much like Sony, Steve Job famously stated that he was inspired by Sony, others copy. What happens when the innovators are no more? Food for thought..! Sony - Xperia Z - highest level of water resistance - 2013, First with a 4K HDR OLED display, first 21:9 ratio since adopted by Moto for one; first {Xperia XZ2) with 4K HDR movie recording in a smartphone; Xperia XZ Premium - first phone with super slow motion in a smartphone to name a few. Currently using the Samsung Galaxy 21 Ultra but waiting for the Xperia 1 iii. My first phone was a Sony and I have always appreciated their unique approach. Hopefully, Sony will take something from LG's demise! It is a learning moment....a big loss. Most of the current companies hardly ever innovate but are mostly great at copying others and building on their ideas....😢

    Well...I just ordered my last LG phone specifically because of the announcement! After years of enjoying their offerings (G2, G3, V10, V20, V30 and V40), I decided I could give them one more sale. I've had my V40 for 2 1/2 years, and probably wouldn't have upgraded for at least 6 months as I'm still very happy with it, but I just had to grab that last one. They say they will support the higher end phones for 3 more years, so that might even take the V60 to Android 13 or higher. So in 2 of 3 years, I'll have to decide on another brand...almost certainly without expandable storage (love my 512gb microSD) or a standard headphone jack with high end audio. I'm sure I'll get plenty of enjoyment out of my 5G V60 (sans dual screen...lol), and I"ll still have a nice spare V40 in the drawer for emergencies.

    It is sad that LG is bailing out. I have used iphone 3g, 3gs, when it first came out. Then got frustrated and switch to LG. It was the best decision I have ever made! The best feature of LG phone: 1) 2 profiles 2) knock knock 3) lock button at the back 4) wide angle camera 5) Log 6) IR as Remote Control 7) headphone jack!!

I still love that phone til this day(someone stole it😩) the G3 lacked some of the G2 features I loved to me so I took it back and got the Note 4😂

    I tried to stay loyal to LG, but an utter disregard for software (lack of quality and frequency of updates) drove me away. I loved their hardware designs, but boot looping and general lack of reliability was a deal breaker. I was hoping, for years, that LG would transform into a hardware-only company and partner with Google for software (or any other company that cared).

When it comes to lg , it was good, not as good as Nokia , but both of them died because they failed to keep their own operating systems updated and running , just thinking it's will be cheaper to get androing in ... And in android market they just got lost and died .... I am pretty sure soon blackberry will close their doors ... Because of the same reason ... I mean switch to android

    You youtuber guys are super harsh on HTC too. And I'm talking out of experience as someone who holds two smartphones one for work and one personal. My personal HTC U12+ is way above the super hyped Samsung phones for example. But the sheer negativity on ROfilm and phone websites in the last 6 years brought the brand to its knees. No marketing trick can survive that, except pouring ridiculous amounts of sponsorship (declared or undeclared) money, and for sure it's almost impossible to beat Samsung and other big Android brands in that game.
