I am tough glad LG stays cause i would hate to see only chinaware crapp taking over the mobile market. That would be the day i start using home phone for calls.

Dear LG CEO,
You bought wide angle camera into the market, you bought the best screen to body ratio.
But if you want to have successful phone, its very easy.
Make a OLED screen POCO F1

dbjungle, 17 Jan 2021You're assuming they don't already.if you follow a little cautiously, looks like either they didnt pay or even worse, paid less to offend the reviewers.

I use LG G7 and I'm using it for 1.5years and no problems so far. For a $320 mobile in India, it seems to be super awesome!! The phone also looks awesome when in hand!!

Problem with LG is availability, cannot buy LG V60 or LG V50 from B&H Photo

They should start from the very begging. Like Asus ZenFon or like how OnePlus started. Best value phone then day by day they will gain popularity and customers Faith. Bring some flagship phones under $600.

If LG will not chage like NOKIA in the past then LG will become HISTORY in smartphone market.

Lg instead of trying to compete directly against Samsung and Xiaomi should cover the gap between them. They can not compete Sansung's network or fame and this is a fact. They can not compete Xiaomi's pricing and this is also a fact. They can cover needs not covered by other brands.
Example . a) a small sized smartphone for people that do not wish to hold a phablet. perfect size should be lg g2 mini's or sony xperia xz1 compact or s4 mini etc. b) a camera phone with optical zoom example Samsung s4 zoom, c) a real gaming phone with retractable gamepad such as xperia play. d) cover the needs of people that want a phone with fm module, 3.5 jack, sd card, infrared, nfc all together. After they will make these phones they will get some audience back and if they prove that they respect this audience (not like the lg g4 failure of support), this audience can follow them their later phones

LG is just overlooked like crazy.
Just look at their rate of innovation they came out with crazy concepts like the LG WIND, LG G8X, and now the WORLD'S FIRST ROLLABLE! The concepts weren't 100% perfect remember, Uncle Sam came out with HALF A PHONE called Galaxy Fold

So now all the reviews are raving about how the new Samsung S21 Ultra can use an active pen - exactly they way that the V60 and Velvet are able to do. So many brilliant features are overlooked by the media when it comes to LG phones. They focus on the negatives. LG downgraded the screen resolution to improve battery life. It's a negative. Samsung does the same on the S21 and S21+ for the same reason and it's reported that they listening to the customers and focusing on the important things.
