And knok lock! It was very good better than pattern!

Oh, i remembering my my first android device LG Optimus L3, LG L5, LG L1 ll, LG L40, LG L70...What good memories it was... I was offered "LG K40" a week ago, but I did not buy it... I prefer xiaomi now!
But I remember LG as a manufacturer of indestructible and reliable phones.

Life is passing ...

LG is the best. I am sad to see them leave. Thr quad DAC and the camera were terrific. The V60 was awesome the v70 looked great as well

Didn't they popularize the "double tap to wake" feature starting with the G2?

Tarak, 05 Apr 2021One of the main reasons why I don't choose LG over Sam... moreSamsung became popular because of the advertisements they made mocking Apple back in the day. They got unbelievable exposure to their brand and products due to that.

My first LG was the G3, since then I've only used LG and have never had any problems with any of my handsets( Apart from one cracked screen).
Sad that the brand didn't get more credit .

Reza.ermantraht, 07 Apr 2021You were a good producer, but you weren't flexible eno... moreBut they provided the change market needed.

People justified removal of 3.5mm jack, they justified removal of charger, removal of SD card slots, at some point they will justify the removal of ports. LG and Sony are the companies kept providing the things yet people kept bashing them. no wonder, customers always lose, its because of them.

Rest in peace LG 😢

The first phone I ever used was LG though I don't remember the model number. It was a great experience . After that I got addicted to LG phones due to their working. Then I came to LG G4: superb camera and all. Then I came to LG G-pro2. O my God. I can't forget this phone I love it. It is out of order now but I still have it.
After G pro 2 I have use many phones but could not find that what I found in g pro 2.
LG should have made publicity all over the world and should have made it sure that its phones are reaching around the globe. If LG tries again, it would be the best smart phone in every aspect I bet.

You were a good producer, but you weren't flexible enough and lacked innovation that market asked for, RIP

My first smartphone is LG Optimus Net which I bought at $185 in 2011. The moment I knew and learned about Quad DAC, I immediately bought an LG V20 which was my second LG phone. I really admired the LG V20 because of its innovative functionalities and capabilities. After I sold it, I bought an LG V30+ which is my current smartphone. I will continue to use my V30+ until its dying day. LG cared more on innovation and hardware and less on marketing and sales tactics (which hurt their international appeal on the market), and finding simple solutions regarding software updates, customer support, and some common issues like bootloop and screen ghosting (lcd) and screen burn-in (oled).

My 2nd Android phone was LG G2 back in 2013. Loved that one.
First one was HTC Desire V.

They should have fired the marketing and advertising people in the first place... Long ago! They dont know how to market, push the product to the wrong market...
Advertised it for the wrong people...
