Yes! finally! because 4.5G LTE cat 18 1.2Gbit it's sooo slow for nowadays consumer mobile usage.

Also, I work for Vodafone and you wouldn't believe the amount of people who call in asking for the iPhone 7/8. This is coming from someone who owns an LG G7 ThinQ. Huawei are becoming the superior brand to Apple honestly. Apple do make a ton of money yes... mainly because of how overpriced their products are compared to their quality. In both price and specs I would rather get a Samsung, LG or Huawei phone over any Apple. I would rather get a PC over a MAC. The only place where I'd say Apple has the market completely is the tablet, iPads are amazing if not a little overpriced but still, haha :)

Read the last 3 words there in order to avoid confusion next time when you post a comment like this or buying a phone :)

If it was trolling then hats off, well done.

How do they know it will be the first 5G smartphone? The 5G Moto Mod will probably be introduced earlier

KwJGames, 15 Aug 2018And that's why Huawei beat Apple in sales H1 2018. Even without ... moreYes, that is due to price of premium.

Huawei and Xioami phones are extremely cheap. In terms of units sold, over 85% weren't even flagship devices and were mid to low ranger being well under $400 in America and even lower in the eastern kingdoms(Wow reference inc).

In terms of profit Apple is well on TOP and not to burst your bubble in any way, but to rather debunk you is the fact that IPhone X was the first of it's kind and it has built up hype. The reason sales are low now is cause it's already been announced that the beter and to note more cheaper version is coming soon. So why buy an IPhone X, or 8/8+ when they can wait a month and get the IPhone XI? 11? Who knows? For a cheaper price.

So LG G8 ThinQ will have 5G... i hope it has more than that cause that's not gonna be enough to attract buyers.

Apple have even stopped manufacturing the iPhone X because it was such a failure. They need to honestly do something big next month if they want to save face.

[deleted post]Can we not bring Apple into this, just because they have the best phones out there doesn't mean we need to be compared to all the time.

We unlike any company don't need to bash anyone, heck even we don't need to hardly advertise anymore. People stick with us cause they know what they're getting( Unbeatable software updates, unbeatable security, a stand alone OS which destroys Androids Proxy OS, High end build quality and just quality in general.)

If you continue this attitude in which you compare us all the time, you prove the fact that we are indeed, better.... Which we already know.

And yes, you have been roasted.

I was amazed with the LGG4 when it was released (2015, April) .. bought it as soon as they released it, was using it next to my Note4 (released 2014, October) .. I learned the hard way that LG is the worse in terms of support and functionality

Samsung is not the greatest but LG is the worse .. Just google LG then (model #) problems, before you buy any LG device .. you will be very thankful you did ...

and no I'm not a samsung fan either .. but LG support and at least security updates are next to none compared to samsung (note4 ) 3 & even 2 years age ... I don't know about other brands tho
