LG has terrible quality control and terrible customer service in china/hong kong...
If i was in China why would I choose a brand with no support as opposed to local brands with service centres everywhere

LG has a heavy UI, different than stock.
Oneplus has a near stock UI with some modifications and that's why it's the fastest.
Don't come in here saying LG doesn't have a heavy UI, everybody knows LG has their own skins and it's unoptimized as heck. Even xiaomi's UI isn't as heavy.

Good, focus on other country with long OS support, LG support mostly just original G family, leaving G pro or V late update

Are you surprised? LG phones have crap quality. Look at how LG handled the bootloops of G4 and V10, the screen retention, the fragile camera glass. They ignored all of those issues. They kept releasing phones with their same crap Quantum IPS since G4 which has screen retention / ghosting issue. They kept releasing phones with fragile camera glass since G5. They never learned from their mistakes.

Sell LG phone cheaper than Chinese phone...maybe still have some hope

Unsurprising given how underwhelming their mobile devices are. A stark contrast to their amazing tv line.

1. poor software update/fixes/security for older devices (it is a long term recommendation strategy)
2. poor hardware inspection/burn-in testing
3. sale prices are too greedy for a bad history binding.
4. slow innovation.
5. poor solution for a model with defective hardware. - "just stop the sale/production/support, Jim! iwant it vanished from this world, Jim!"

Sammy have the laggyest UI in the world follow by Alcatel and Xiaomi.

Thats true nobody in Portugal have LG phones because people here are dumb, only buy icrap devices and sammycrap.

Im from Portugal and i am very happy with my LG V10...never change for a sammy or icrap device.

LG might be recovered if it follows OnePlus strategy. Now, at identical price as Samsung, LG stands no opportunity in the competition.

AnonD-683236, 04 Feb 2018It's understandable why LG sale so low, it's because their ... moreNo way Android makers will go to AOSP. They need ways to set themselves apart from another maker. That's why Samsung introduced tons of useless services into their phones and resulting the phones start to lag over time. IMO, LG has the least amount of built-in crapwares.

For a 300€,LG G5 is by far the best middranger money can buy.Nothing wrong with the fact that G5 is still featured in their website.
And when I think it has an removable battery,3.5mm headphone jack,and one of the best dual cam setup out there,I honestly couldnt apprehend why anyone would buy "no name" junk over that?!?
