73?5?? Damn LG you just blew it. I love this company but sometimes it feels pointless even having hope.

Anonymous, 10 May 2020Also missing Corning Gorilla Glass 6 .True, even the GG5 would be nice, but based on available informations here there is no GG, but it could be lack of informations.
Though, based on how bad this phone is (specs wise), it wouldn't surprise me if there is none.

Plus sony was also one of the first brand to use IP rating on their phone and at that time, people were hating it saying that they won't need it an unnecessary. Now look at where we are

Can i help you to create new model

I think $500 or even $550 would've been a price I would be happy to pay for it, given the really good specs. It is essentially a upper mid range phone. But $735?! Come on LG.

AhmedSLL, 08 May 2020Yes 735$ is asking too much, but 335$, come on, your exagge... moreYou're right, 335 is to low. It is ok for this phone 450 euros, to sum up? I think, design for a midranger is not bad, back camera design (finally, finally) is not a bad copy of iPhone 2019 lineup (like in Samsung S20 series, Galaxy A51, 71..), Xiaomi, Redmi, Huawei, Honor, and "others". Bit, thats it.

And about those prices, that's true. Alll OEMs this year have higher prices (even Qualcomm). And thats because they want to recover of bad or non sales al all, because of covid 19, with our money. So think wise, don't buy now anything from them, in a month or so, prices will go down, like it sould from a beginning

And people wanting a second screen can only choose this or older v50/v50s or the nearly 2M korean won impractical/weakly built models from samsung.

I find it's very funny that 1 year ago, every made jokes and complaints about Sony 21:9 screen, like too tall, or remote control... Now with every other phone companies are using 20:9, 20.5:9... I heard no more jokes or complaints how tall the phones are anymore.

I don't understand why Sony get all the hates, they are the pioneer, the others are followers, but the people turn all their hatred to Sony anyway.

Outside, this phone has no way to compete at that price, basic, expensive and with nothing interesting to offer.

Only Apple is the non-korean brand with proper after sales support shops in here. In case you're pointing towards cheap value chinese models, import tax adds up as well as minimal to literally no official service center support here makes those ones the phones to avoid.

I think most will agree having an Snapdragon8xx-series is the entry of making to highend segment. People look at the SoC first. The rest, it just what vendors compete against each other, and more compelling for the users. This is a premium mid-range at it best.
