    Had an LG G7 for a long time (got it a bit after release) and I feel like their design language was absolute top tier at the time. Im using a Xiaomi 11t rn and while it is an incredible upgrade especially battery life, amoled and 120hz, I miss the UI of the LG Skin. If you get used to it, it feels so beautiful. Also anything Audio related was working perfectly. I feel like Xiaomi is the complete reversal sadly in that regard. It also had less bugs, but I feel like Xiaomi just really is bad in the Software Department. If LG ever wants to get back into the game they should start with all the premium features (120hz Amoled, High Battery Life, etc..) and then set themselves apart with things like the Hi-Fi DAC. If they just made a 2022 Version of the G7 I would have stayed.

    I always liked LG, back in the day, in middle school I had a low end LG, basic and cheap, and I loved it, it was quick, it was all that I needed and it lasted me four years and could have lasted me more if I hadn't broken it accidentally, I was so impressed by it I bought another LG phone, their sounds were cute (to me), I liked the camera, it was also quick, way better storage memory and it wasn't expensive, it sure cost me more than the other one, but it was a good deal, after that, I heard many people say LG wasn't good anymore for some reasons and stopped hearing from them ever since. Sadly I was mugged and that phone was stolen shortly after, never had an LG afterwards for one reason or another I thought they had stopped selling phones altogether. Last one I heard of was the LgG5.

      I sat on an EnV from 2009 through 2017. Always enjoyed that flipper and it toughed it out until the front screen intermittently failed and it kept running out of memory. Mainly because of the keyboard, I went to a BB classic and then another keyboard phone this year when BB OS support took a blow around June 2021. Sorry you had your possessions yanked, that must have been traumatizing and tiring to recover from.

    I had an lg G3, V30, and now a V60. I loved how fast the laser autofocus was on the G3. Unfortunately I really do feel the pain of them not collecting the technologies they pioneered into the V60. It's essentially their equivalent of the note series but it just feels like an average phone


    This makes me feel bad for LG. They are like the SUPER smart kid in school that everyone goes to for answers for homework but never talks to him

    I've been with Samsung since the original S. I watch reviews for different brands but never actually got one. I just feel comfortable with Samsung to the point I'm scared to leave them. I only ever really thought to switch to apple but the unavailability of some apps I use made it difficult.

    Great video, I agree with most of what you say. Still, I'll miss them. I had the G3 and the G5 and they had great things that I really missed when they were gone. * The Power button on the back which included a fingerprint scanner was much better than putting your finger on the screen to unlock. * I still think the Volume buttons on the back were better too, though more debatable. * The G5 was one of the last phones with replaceable batteries, which was great too. (granted, the G5 battery life sucked, as did its lifespan). I didn't care for the modularity of it, I never used that. But changing batteries gave this feeling as if you're reloading a gun, hehe. I got 2 chinese phones since the G5, and they are just not on the same level. One thing that could have been added to the video: availability. We get a free phone with a new contract (every 2 years) and at some point local carriers stopped handing out LG phones, so I HAD to switch to another brand.

    I used an LG G2, G4 and G6. All were good handsets with the lG g4 with a really good camera - 16 megapixel and laser auto focus. Their UI was one of the first to use gestures to unlock the device. Anyway I felt after g6 they lost the plot slightly.

    To me LG's really always been about innovation. They're having fun with their products; designing and descarding them on a whim. But the real reason why I've always been satisfied with LG is mere accessibility. More often than not they're affordable, quality devices. I do admit, I've never truly commited exclusively to LG. However, always seem to find my way back to them.

  • pattmyn

    I personally used a V60 as my daily driver for a solid two years and the price I got it for was a steal given that it came with a second year of warranty, the secondary display (which is why I wanted it in the first place), and a set of their wireless earbuds. But that primary reason is why I dropped it almost immediately when the Galaxy Z Fold3 was available to me - they blew it. Between the bulky hinge in the middle making it useless for trying to view content across both screens, the really inconsistent behaviour of apps in response to the secondary display (and seriously, if I wanted to use the phone in landscape view with both displays and use the whole bottom display as a keyboard a la old school BlackBerry, I had to use their software keyboard...which is terrible), and the fact that the "display case" relied on a proprietary magnetic charging port which was a dongle I had to put on the end of my USB C cable which also had the magnetic strength of a flimsy refrigerator magnet/sticker thingy...it just wasn't worth using and gathered dust on my nightstand. Z Fold3 comes out? Bought it immediately, despite it's insane price tag. Ditched the V60 like it was was out to kill me. LG just completely blew it when it came to their most compelling feature to me and I wouldn't have even bought it in the first place if I were to be able to discover the issues with the secondary display on a demo model which wasn't running their custom tailored apps. Then LG's mobile division just shut down completely long before I bought the Z Fold3 not even giving me an option to stay loyal to the brand.

    So far the best smart phone I had was LG v30. It was fast, lightweight, superior build quality, thinnest bezzels at the time, great rear camera. LG deserves better.

    I *loved* my LG G2, including the novel-for-the-time sensor that allowed you to double tap on the screen to turn it on, and a really good camera. LG felt like a genuine top tier manufacturer - and I remember being excited about the G3's laser autofocus, but was all about trying different manufacturers, and I went for an HTC as my next handset. After that, I never got another LG again, partly as it felt like Samsung had upped their game to match iPhone build quality and no one really kept up. Sort of felt like LG had kinda dropped to a sub-premium tier manufacturer - then Samsung Forever or whatever the program was at the time rewarded me for just switching to the next Galaxy/Note... so I got stuck in the cycle

    Some years ago now, I had an LG Flex, and ive never loved a smartphone the way I loved that thing. It was by no means a powerful device at all, but it did everything i needed it to do perfectly, and the pure magic of it was its physical design. Putting the lockscreen and volume control buttons on the back panel was a stroke of genius, and you dont realise how much of a difference that makes to every day use until you actually have that feature. Being in the position they are, they dont get in the way at all, and are in the perfect spot that you dont have the to hold the phone in unnatural position to use them. Use the phone, lock the screen, and put it away, in one seemless movement. The curvature of the screen made no difference to my eyes, but it was a mixed bag to others. Some people tried it and loved it. Others thought it was a strain on the eyes to use. While I owned that phone, I was taking public transport to work every day, during which i was listening to music for most of the trip. With the music app in use, the volume controls doubled as track selection, and the lock screen button doubled as play/pause. Common features, but because the buttons were outward-facing while the phone was in my pocket, it meant I didn't even need to reach for my phone. One tap on my pocket was all it needed. Further to that, the curvature of all facets of the phone meant it was extremely ergonomical in my hand, but even better than that, it formed perfectly against my body while in my pocket. I couldnt even feel it was there most of the time. No other smartphone ive owned was or is like that. They all feel a bit cumbersome and intrusive, but never the Flex. On multiple occasions i completely forgot it was in my pocket for this reason. One faithful and windy day on my trip home, the flailing earphone wire caught the bag of a passer-by, and the phone flung out of my hand. It performed a fantastic and heart-stopping aerial manoeuvre, before hitting the ground, landing perfectly parallel to the pavement, all four corners of the screen contacting the ground at the same time. The screen was a total loss, and emotionally, so was I. I considered replacing it, but given its very low price point at the time, and its frankly rubbish and outdated specs, i moved on and upgraded. The tech has far improved since then, with intergration becoming alot easier along the way, but as for a smartphone being a physical extension of the body, and really what a true 'smart device' should be, nothing compares to the Flex. It really was "The Most Human Phone Ever".

    I loved my V20, it was an amazing phone, until an OTE update bricked the phone.. and I dont mean like, temporary bug. I mean it fundamentally broke the bootloader. LG refused to RMA it, and after 12 weeks using a cheap $100 phone, I bought a Note 9 which I am still using today. LG eventually did admit that the OTE update bricked the phones and offered to fix them, but by that time I had moved on.

    I had 4-5 LG smartphones, budget, and flagship phones and I was pleased with every one of them. My last LG phone was LG G5, such a great phone, love it. The only thing I missed was water resistance on my LG G5. I'm sad that LG stopped the production of smartphones.

    I had a G4 and I was so happy to get that (I thought was a) very powerful smartphone with superb camera quality. Until after more or less a year it succumb to a bootloop problem. I googled the issue and found out a lot of users had that problem as well and LG won't fix it. Since then, I erased LG as my option for my next smartphones purchases. I don't feel sorry to a company who wasted my hard earned money. They should stop smartphone business and focus on they smart TV's.

    I've had several LG phones (Stylo 2, 4, 6, Tribute, X-Charge, K92) I loved the audio quality and the battery life of the LG's. I thought they were great. However, every single phone had either the battery suddenly die, or the charging port would stop working. It's a shame LG gave up their cell phone production.

      @Bradavon of course bro. Where oppo and xiaomi are practicing aggressive low price tag for mid ranger phones, LG still offers high priced phones with inferior chipsets. It is not uncommon to see a budget Redmi device packing a high powered snapdragon with an AMOLED for an inferior price. Well done LG and rest in peace. I hope to never see that brand again as long as android is still around. And yeah. Lg phones are boring to use, Redmi on the other hand is definitively a hit,oh yeah, in case of the headphone jack, Redmi and oppo still offers that port since they build both budget device. And how could I forget Realme with it's GT, a flagship grade device with a snapdragon 888 5g chipset at a ridiculously inferior Price tag

    • CheapBastard1988

      I did the same😂. Huawei Honor 2 2GB (AKA G615) to an LG G4. The Huawei was garbage. Only the camera was decent for the time. After the G4 I started using a €15 second hand Motorola G4 Plus. The Motorola wasn't amazing (except for the one week battery life) but very cheap and still a million times better than the Huawei. Now I have a Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra and it's the first smartphone I've ever had with a fantastic software experience. It better though for €1350 (incl. 21% Tax). But now I'd rather pay extra and be unoriginal now, buying a Samsung. Just for the software experience. iPhone is not an option as it doesn't support sideloading apps without jailbreaking. Besides I'm not blown away with the iOS user interface (I use an iPad at work).

    I had an LG G5 for 2 years, it was a really good phone with a pretty good camera, I had no issues with the camera and still don't, it's obviously not the best but for that time it was great. After that I got the S10, and I was mortified to find the camera was absolute crap! Looks like I'm not the only one, tons of people online were complaining about it and returned their phones. It was too late for me to return mine ugh. S10 is a great phone otherwise though, and beautiful looking phone too. My G5 is either totally shot, or the battery is completely dead and gone...

  • OceanBeach

    Just to add. I once demoed one of their phones that were modular and oh my gosh their software skin was TERRIBLE. ESPECIALLY in the settings app. It looked cluttered, there was no recognition, their was no cohesion and uniformity. It was really unsatisfying to use. Another thing as to why people no longer bought Sony phones was their build quality and the fact you could not install apps onnan SD card back in the Android KitKat days. And that is what turned off customers to go to Samsung. To use a phone they recognised as easy yo use and more like how Android should be used and function.

  • ✨Scarlett✨

    I had an lg phone a couple years ago. The screen and size was great, the battery lasted for days and it had a fingerprint sensor on the back. Honestly I would recommend it for anyone on a budget (it was under $400). Also recommend Motorola phones too. Great phones for when you're on a budget. If you're not on a budget I'd recommend my phone, the Samsung S20 FE.

    I really enjoyed this, thank you Mrwhosetheboss! LG would have done well to take you on board with their phone marketing and planning. I still have an LG V30+ (and yes I need to look up the name almost any time anyone asks!!). This is the first LG phone (we also have 2 LG tv's which are fantastic) I have used or had and I am the only person I know with an LG phone, I have really enjoyed it and would buy another if they were available. The design and quality is brilliant. It is 5 years old and the specs and performance are still better than the midrange phones my service provider is trying to get me to take when they phone me up to "upgrade". I am starting to look around for what a good replacement would be as I realise it's days are starting to become numbered from the operating system and upgradibility side.

  • Joe Doria Music

    When you mention trouble making a connection to the LG brand I'm afraid you're wrong. There are lots of V20 users searching for the next replacement but for powerplant update - and none come close. A major reason is the removable battery. Combine that with the quad dac, manual photo/video settings, sd mini support, usb-c port, fast-charging, infrared port, FM radio, 24-bit/192 audio recording, and the headphone jack and you had a daily driver you hold onto a hell of a lot longer than you thought (still use mine as a daily). Btw, the next company to revive the smartphone with a removable battery will murder the market for a while. Let's see who has the guts. Love LG phones. Really sad they're out and didn't get the press they deserved.

      LG is the only smartphone company that has been using ESS Sabre Hi-Fi Quad DACs in their phones for years, yet they never made a big deal about it even though it's a huge deal. They missed a huge oportunity of educating consumers on how much better music sounds through their phones with quality headphones. Since the V10, they've been using ESS audio chips and barely made noise about it. It was ESS who made a post on their obscure website every time LG used their chips.

    When the Note 7 had the Battery exploding issue, I was thinking of switching to the LG V series. That could of been one opportunity for the phone but they never took advantage of it. But they never sold the phone in the UK. Availability was a big issue as well. I lost interest as soon as I could not to get one.

      This. And the distribution of of it is quite poor too. My G6 got updated to Android 8.0 after nearly 3 years. And as if that's not bad enough, i found out that for my region that's the final upgrade, while others got android 9.0. And since most phone nowadays had wide angle cam, this might be my last LG.

  • Scott11078

    The first smartphone I purchased was the LG Thrill, a phone pushed onto me by sales people because it was free. I wanted the Galaxy s4, the not so thrilling thrill was a 3D phone. It was cool for about half an hour and when I finally ditched it to start using galaxy active I had tons of pictures and video in a format that was stuck on that phone since they were all 3D.

  • jimwavect

    Bought my V20 in large part because of the replaceable battery feature. It seems as though this is something that many people would want, but apparently I'm in the minority. Still works great and was a steal at $175 on eBay 2+ years ago.

    Its interesting, to me LG is more focused on their local market in Korea. At some point they had great colabs with well know artists in Korea, sponsoring every entertainment show on local tv, me as a foreigner interested in korean shows got interested in LG phones because of that, but ended up switching to samsung eventually, like you said its more consistent

    I have been using several LG smartphones, and the main factor why LG had to exit the smartphone market was definitely the lack of marketing in key target markets. They were barely visible with their products in Europe... while they did have quite the presence in their home market. Another frustrating factor for non-Asia LG phone buyers was certainly, that the models released in Korea or Hong Kong mostly always had double the internal memory for the same price - and sometimes more color options. I had a samsung note 1 which died ONE day after its warranty expired, by then I switched to LG G Pro (stupidly the EU version with half memory), after that imported the Hong Kong version of V10 (double memory) and in early 2019 to the Hong Kong version of V40 (red color, not available outside of asia). Still using the V40 and loving it, but the next phone will be a samsung again (hoping for it not to die just after the warranty period), probably the s22 ultra. And once again looking to import (color availability, processors of asia vs. eu variants...) Back to topic though, LG smartphones had one thing I liked a lot about them/still like a lot: no matter how much you cram onto the sd card and the internal memory, the device does not get noticeably slower. Even if the phone is so crammed that it cannot update the weather app anymore. What frustrated me about LG smartphones: different models for the EU vs asia. Pricing policy. My V40 was around €150 cheaper as an imported model vs. what it cost at the same time here in Germany. The pricing difference dropped a few months later to the same level, but that is just ridiculous. Another fun fact: LG also released such cool clamshell phones in Korea in the late 2000s/early 2010s like the ice cream and lollipop series. Wish we had all of those available in Europe as well ;-)

    Been buying LGs since the Stylo. The one thing they did really well for a while were UIs that interacted with the case. I ADORED the circle view UI on the early Stylo and G4, and I was so disappointed when it went away. The G6 had a translucent case with a magnet sensor - when it was closed, the screen switched to a simple design that you could see through the case. Again, gone after the G6 Got the dual screen V60 now, and I'm sad that allegedly it'll be the last LG I can buy.

    Well said! I'm one of the few... I have absolutely no product loyalty in anyway... I geek, study tech & look for the greatest value to quality ratio in every aspect of a purchase; a car, toaster, or phone... Of 11 phones I have owned 8 have been LG. No one comes close to the price/tech/ construction of their G & V line devices. Chip-set, ram (2016 LG V20 came w/4GB), camera, screen, overall construction (I believe all G & V series met Military specs). All of the above for 40-60% less than a comparable Samsung. . . LG failed miserably in 2 areas 1st - Failure to update or clean, timely updates. 2nd - Most consumers don't know anything about the tech which makes up their device. Forget about consumers, most sales people don't even know which devices offer cutting edge specs or recycled junk. I'm blown away to see people buying a new Samsung with essentially 3yr old tech inside. I have seen people buy a new device with poorer performance specs than their previous device. . . Poor LG was under the same illusion I was... The world is educated on tech specs & would recognize a great value and not the majority being a "ship of fools".

  • pegatan

    LG had super low budget devices. When I worked at the German-Dutch border, many had problems with reception there, my GM205 had no dropped calls even with one bar. The Dolby Surround speaker on the back was my loud companion in the warehouse when I had to put orders together. Later in college, I had the Spirit 4G for an unbeatable €66. At my home address there was only 4G reception and I needed a cheap smartphone in 2015. I gave it away to a buddy after a year, he used it for another two years and then gave it to his mother. And she still uses it today, after almost 7 years!

    As someone who started using Android using LG. I kind of feel saddened by their death. Seeing as V60 might be their last flagship (considering Velvet specs). I do agree with Aaron's opinion. LG never really took of. There are times when I snobs at their product. Probably they should learn a thing or two from BBK's Playbook instead of trying to chase Samsung's Playbook. Or perhaps they should simply just write themselves a playbook for them which will work. I still remember how they tried to copycat Galaxy Note and fails miserably. Once upon a time they built a good Nexus Phone. And today! They built a proper phone with a Quad DAC. But why.... Life's Ended instead of being Good. They do make a lot of good decisions and fails to promote them.

    I have a rocky relationship with LG phones. Back in 2014 I bought the OnePlus One and together with a friend we used to have the best smartphones around (his was an LG G3 which I thought was amazing). So the OP2 came out I I was completely disillusioned with the design, so I bought a LG G4 with a beautiful leather back. The damn phone died on me not long after the device warranty and I couldn't resell it because everybody knew at that point that the phone was a big mess. It was a total loss of money and I didn't ever looked back at LG phones again.

    I use to love LG phones at one point my first 3g phone was the LG u880 many years ago and the last one I owned was the Nexus 5 and various others in that time and I can agree they're no longer consistent with the devices they make like in the days of 3g non smartphones the u880 came out then a year later the u890 came out which was an updated design but still similar and everything the u880 done the u890 done it better it was a clear upgrade not a completely different device with missing features from the previous gen.. it's unfortunate because they use good hardware and well made devices just as premium as Samsung like the g3/g4 for example was one of the most advanced of the time or even the LG Optimus 3D was one of the highest specced devices of its era

  • Je-note

    Watching this from my G6, which i bought after Nexus 5 (which is also LG). And i have love and hate relationship with it. LG always had some unique and innovative features to them. So much that they crossed the of being weird, not for mass users. At the same time LG phones has no distinct selling point. Jack of everything, master of none. Which made them good all-arounders, but again, not for everyone. I love my G6 for unique features which nobody had at the time or doesn't have even now: amazing IPS display on flagship phone (don't like AMOLED), AOD in IPS screen, double tap wake up, combined fingerprint scanner and back pannel power button, quad DAC, super durable construction (most durable I've ever seen), unique design, ultra wide camera (they were first). BUT there are always so many buts about LG. Tiny battery, outdated glass on front and unverified glass on back, outdated even at the time processor, which wasn't good to begin with and really bad OS to complement it, some hardware issues, bad selfie camera. It was laggy from day one. They are innovative, but those innovations always so raw. Also their horrendous pricing strategy, which was mentioned in the video.

The best phones I’ve had consistently have been LG in the V 60 is probably the best phone I’ve ever had. I’ve had Samsung‘s the S series and the notes series and the LG was just significantly better. I think what a lot of people are missing about the LG compared to the other phone companies is LG takes chances they’re not safe like other companies. When’s the last time Apple took a chance on anything. Hell they don’t even assemble most of their phone. And Samsung is just loaded with bloatware. I will miss the LG phones very dearly.

    the first (and by the way, THE BEST) android phone i have ever had was an LG G4... the strangest part of that dark year for the LG brand was when the G4 had that endless boot loop and i think, that 2015/6 were the worst years for LG in the smartphone market (although i never had that boot loop and when i sold it, the new user got the boot loop but not me!)... after that, it came out the G5 with removable bottom/battery, it was a true innovation but the execution led prone to user mishandle... indeed LG makes the most efficient and accurate color displays and by extension, THE BEST tv's on the market along with Sharp... and the competitors will struggle to keep up LG's quality... BUT IN THE SMARTPHONE AREA, it's like they shoot themselves on the foot... i mean, they almost never heard the community, and in this 2021 is SO unfortunate (because ALL their smartphones are SO GOOD but the operative system and the security updates, os updates, etc., are always left to be desired because most of us nowadays look forward to not spend on a smartphone for a few years, and LG didn't (and STILL doesn't give us any news about their smartphones... hell, i looked for the Android 12 update for the V60 and there's so much confusion! i want this phone but LG won't let me preserve it in the long term!

  • JackoBanon1

    I bought the LG G3, G4, V30 and V40 and all of these were insanely good smartphones at their time. Especially the advanced Hi-Fi-Sound chip of the V-series smartphones combined with good ear phones is still ahead of any competition. Neither Apple nor Samsung deliver a comparable sound quality. Apple doesn't even have a plug for normal headphones anymore! That's why I was shocked when I heard that LG stopped developing and producing smartphones because their smartphones had almost the same performance as the other brands and some great advantages like the very good sound quality.

    I'll be honest, I was quite happy with my G3 - until the mainboard somehow fried, 2 years in. Nothing had ever happened to it, no drops, no water damage, zilch. Was outside of warranty too, so I got myself the G3 shortly after. 6 months in, same issue. Warranty offered to replace the main board but couldn't guarantee it would not happen again and I was done with it. No way was I losing all my data again, and have the support tell me it happens regularly for G3 and even the G4 of my partner at the time. Swapped to Samsung and recently to Apple, never went back. LG seriously lost my trust with that stuff - once I can forgive, twice I am pissed and I won't risk it happening a third time.
