LG isn't giving up on smartphones

15 January 2021
The company was adamant about denying a recent report.

Just wanna say, like the text says, they are working on a rollable phone, so why would they quit now? Besides, the Velvet is selling pretty ok. The LG Wing is a pleasant surprise to boost the LG brand name for phones, and with the affordable K series they have a nice alternative in the budget and midrange segment. They only need a well oiled marketing machine to promote their smartphones.

And also improve on software department seriously I can't think of a brand which is worse than LG on software updates

IMO what LG need to succeed is focus on mid range phones, there mid rangers are just terrible with high price and low market availability. It might sound stupid but just like Redmi and Realme they should release phones almost every week or month with aggressive pricing and little differences between models in entry to mid range lineup and also a clean uper mid range lineup and flagship lineup which won't be overcrowded with their own models

They shouldn't. Their phones are pretty decent. They just need to work on their marketing & they'll improve their sales.

LG needs to understand that making these innovating phones is good, but for the average consumer doesn't matter. They should focus on making good phones at good prices, if they want to compete with Chinese companies. Otherwise only a small percentage of people will buy their phones (probably the fanboys).
