I've talked to several Walmart and Best Buy managers, and Samsung appears to be the leader -- followed by TCL, Philips and Vizio. Yes, I'm sure LG is doing better in TVs than in phones, but they seem to still be behind the others. Samsung is so tough!!

Kind of sad that they had to stop their. Seriously, I love lg phones. No matter how old or bad they are, they're still one of my favorites brand. Instead of completely shutdown their mobile division, they should take this chance to change their perception, system and trend style. Its not a lie that they made a really good phones, but that not just gonna made them popular. Comparing to the phone design and the price that the another company is working on these day, it's not weird that they made a decision to stop their product lines. They stand still too much on their motto, that even the other phone could compare to with a same specifications and even cheaper. I hope they'll take a break, see how the smartphone world is working these days, make a proper plan and return with a better phone. Even if it's a midrange phone is fine, as long as they have what people want and most importantly it's affordable. All I can see is they rushed to make a flagship phones without a proper future planning, then drop the price a year later after not getting a expected result. Instead of improving, they just made a same mistake and ended up give up on their phome department...

Though LG had been goong off-track off their motive for the last couple years, but I would've picked their phones anyway over some cheap and non-quality Chinese brands 'IF' they were available in most of the regions (like I said).
Well, what a way to go. Farewell nevertheless, LG.

I'm so glad that all those cheap chinese phone brands are giving us low quality devices at low prices instead of quality devices at a respectable price point.
So long old friend.

M a fan of LG phones... I use the lg v35 thinq but what if there is a way you can beat other Android phone's company including iOS? You can create something of the future without others knowing.

These companies clearly have a market understanding and are giving their users what they are asking for. Their expertise is making their products sell.
They don't overprice their products and knock themselves out of the market like Sony did.

I never owned an LG phone, but some of my friends who did made me a bit envious to say the least. LG was always innovative, one of their phones even hold a world record for using a dual core cpu 1st. Nothing left to say but farewell, maybe LG will get back into the mobile biz one day. All the fans can do is have hope.

The only problem i am haveing that the processor doesnt hold up my usage anymore, it's to slow :/ but for normal use its the beat phone, with pixel camera software it outperform p30 pro for example. For me its kind of hard to find a replacement right now :/ same price range bellow 500€

good decision why make products which do not bring any revenue. Also, they are killin it in TV business so better focus on it.

Somehow I hoped it will not happen, but here you go. Stocks are doing ok though. I hope their other divisions will be managed better. I will miss you, LG mobile.
