( BATTERY, DISPLAY.CAMERA, INTERFACE, ERGONOMIC DESIGN)

LG'S UI & INTERFACE IS SIMPLE & NEAT CUSTOMIZED.......

Reasons I think these companies are facing poor sales :

HTC - These guys made an okay looking (imo of course, though many consider it the best looking) device, but then chose a one-trick-pony camera (when in that thickness and bezels they could've fitted a bigger sensor ala Sony or Nokia), took out the Micro SD slot, and thought that all the phandroids would be okay with the apple-esque storage upgrade prices. Wrong decision.

LG G2 - Only one thing that LG could publicise about the device, NO BEZELZ!! That was about it, nothing special or cutting-edge about the design, Display is pretty good but still second to HTC One and Sony Z Ultra, speakers and audio quality run-of-the-mill for an S800 phone, and camera despite OIS lagged behind competitors.

Huawei - Let's face it, when Huawei wants to take on Samsung, it has to put more power under the hood, designs were quite good as was build quality. But the rest sort of felt par-for-the-course for the prices, which isn't the way to go when you're the new kid on the block. Huawei's making great strides though in bringing the quality up and the price down, like the Honor 3c and 3x, both of which undoubtedly be brought to markets around the world once some of the launch craze demand in China is satiated. But if Xiaomi speeds up its globalisation, then Huawei could be looking at stiffer competition.

In closing, apart from HTC (who still think that the Apple philosophy is a good basis for a successful Android), both LG and Huawei have more opportunities in 2014 than they did this year, however I think LG will face much stiffer competition, with its longer launch cycles, problematic update schedules, and uninspiring designs.

All the flagship models without sd card slots struggled...no major suprise there then!

To the Manufactures...the things you need to know:
build 1 phone per year, just to increase screen, memory, cpu not gonna push me to buy new phone every 3 months, Iphone 4 is still the best phone on the market, does job like a big ones Iphone 4 is like a Porsche 911 its build to last, you wanna offer me something better to move from my Iphone 4, build a Hologram phone...

and people seem to think nokia would fare better in an over saturated android market. no matter how you swing it, samsung will keep dominating android. nokia made the right decision by innovating on the windows phone platform. htc needs to reduce the price of their phone. i think its to high.

They are to expensive ! That's why the low sales for a bunch of plastic phones (LG).

Constipated guru, 28 Dec 2013Sony's user interface sucks!! Played with the xperia V/Z and the... moreActually Sony's interface is one of the things that admired by so many people,,it's fast,clear,modern,without unnecessary things like Samsung that resulted in messy interface,,but every one have their own taste,and about design,many LG phones are copy from Samsung galaxy series(which are most ugly by my opinion)(actually I think LG imitates Samsung in many aspects)so I don't think LG has any innovation in design,and changing volume key location isn't at all innovation in contrast it's what made g2 very bad looking,all companies have a line of design that Mark that company,and surely Sony's design is above all,,not LG's copyact design from Samsung.

Sony is king, 28 Dec 2013Sorry,but all sony product are much better than your LG's trash,... moreSony's user interface sucks!!

lg is doing better than sony in smartphone, feature phone, tv's and other electronic products...

sony xperia z1 is a big disappointment !!!


Well, somehow I don't feel sorry for LG, rather they deserve it. They sell their 'flagship' devices and then don't bother to update their OS.
Serves your right LG...
