    as someone that bought LG phones fairly regularly (usually their flagships a couple years after they come out becacuse price drops like mad) its kinda sad to see, but then again, id never get any real productivity out of them till its ablee to be rooted. that software UI is so, ugh. Samsungs One UI is way better, if that says anything. Edit: Double tap to wake is the best feature LG has ever came up with and it pisses me off that more companies dont add it.

    oh last note... most all the LG "new" "first" thing is difference of days or same time. Not one of the big designs were LG inventions, like quad cpu's.. they came out across all the market the same time. timing was based on marketing for most. biggest issue is New is not always best. focus on Biometrics, getting ride of a number of functions to "save/reduce" costs. they assume to much based on nerds that are loudest buy less than 5% of the market. everyone else just had to sucks it up or move on. #1... no more 3.5mm jack. nuff said. wont get into the garbage with OS changes

    LG blows Samsung & Sony out of the water in every department they have their foot in. They blow Samsung & Sony out of the water when it comes to TVs. LG destroys Samsung in appliances. LG is great at phones, but as you said, everyone just took their ideas, ran with it & didn't give LG the credit they deserved. This is actually a big move for LG. I promise you in 10 years all TVs will most likely be LG, as of right now theyre NanoCells & OLEDs are better in every way then Samsung's QLED or Sonys OLED which LG makes for Sony anyway. LG has the technology of OLED patented. Nobodies making anything OLED without their approval. At least with OLED that is actually worth it and doesn't cost you an arm and leg like Sony. LG has a grip on the tv market, in 10 years nobody will be making calls on TVs without their approval, specially once all TVs become OLED.

    I believe the most important factor for their phones to die, is because their battery life was a joke. I remember the time when my battery died when I was abroad, trying to find a location. It was scary. 2 months after that, I bought a Mi 6, life was a lot better.

    LG Died, noting all their innovations, because their build quality was BAD. They sold phones they knew would brick due to heat and didn't do recalls when they should have.

    As a massive LG fan the fact that LG stopped making new phone sends me. I use the V60 right now it's honestly the best one I have ever had the battery is large the screen is good the refresh rate really doesn't bother me because it saves my battery on a day-to-day basis one thing that I really like about LG is when you compare LG to like Samsung you don't have all the bloatware that Samsung has I think that's one of the huge things that I'm going to miss about algae is it's simply gives you a lot of the same features as like a Samsung or xiaomi without all the bloatware without all of Samsung's ideas like Bigsby and so on being shoved down your throat

    My first LG was the EnV. When Verizon switched to 3G, they told me make the switch to the touch screen phone so I switch to the iPhone & I hated it. The constant updates from Apple & the shit battery life has been a constant problem. Back in 2015 I made the switch from not only a different carrier but phone back to LG. I believe I got the V20 & loved it so much that when I was due for another upgrade I switch to the LG G6. Fantastic phone, great battery life & amazing camera. Then I upgraded again to the latest G8 & this phone has been my constant. It's battery life, software, processing, & especially camera have been awesome. My only complaint was there were never enough company provided cases for it. Same thing for my G6. I was stuck with having to choose a Amazon special but where I & how I keep my phone in my vehicle, it strongly depends on the case not only protecting the camera & the screen but the case cannot be silicone & that is a HUGE majority of the cases out there. So I stuck with the case TMobile suggested which was a smoky rubberized case which has done it's job quite well. I am so bummed about LG giving up on phones & MAYBE they will come back with all the research & design that they have don't in other aspects & blow the competition out of the water & maybe they won't but now I'm stuck chosing their competition, Samsung. And they pop out camera design is a no for me.

    I bought my LGV40 for the price and specs...but fell in love with it because of the audio and solid user experience. Great hardware...fingerprint reader...strong chip and ram. I didn't like it as much as my Samsung software wise, but I came around to it in the same way you love an old pair of shoes that fit just right. Now I have to figure out how I'm going to get that audio quality and keep my 512 Gb microsd card. LG was LEGIT...but I have to admit I had to use the phone to really GET them. They were kinda like the upgraded Toyota Camry of smartphones. Not really exciting, but the things it did really well were solid.

    I've been a fan since I got a V10 during the summer of 2017 after my google nexus 6 was stolen when I was in Europe (also a great phone). I've used a V10, a V20 and V40 and they were wonderful phones. This may have been a bad idea considering they're closing down their mobile department, but I bought a V60 for the seemingly amazing battery life, the screen and the headphone jack. Honestly the ONLY thing that kept me away after awhile was the storage. I know there's expandable storage and that's great for people who can/want to use it, but I'm not that person. 64 gigs just became to limiting as time went on. If they had larger storage options I would have never switched, but 128gb in the V60 is a comfortable amount and I'm excited to be able to use this phone for hopefully the next couple of year. You'll be missed LG. Thank you for giving me a wonderful experience after getting a phone stolen in foreign country. It's silly but I became really attached to that V10.

    LG's mobile outfit dedicated their entire line of flagships to high levels innovation. This is great for many many people bar a few. Namely, it's great for competitor brands that want to observe what features stick (so they can refine and implement at a lower risk); but not so great for LG themselves who are focusing time, energy and resources into features we don't really want yet (at a higher risk). Ultimately, I respect the plucky innovators. And wish their designers and engineers a long and fruitful career.

    I am a pretty big LG Stylo fan. I started with the Stylo 3 and I currently own the Stylo 6. I don't need the premium features of the Samsungs and iphones. I just needed a phone that had a large screen, take decent pictures, and multitask. The stylus was a unique plus. Sad to see this company leave the phone game.

I remember youtubers including yourself would review LG and either downplay it or say there's better alternatives like samsung or it's not better than samsung which even if it was even that's a win. It was also do to LG trying to please iphone/samsung fans while disregarding their own fan base

    I agreed with u dude, LG made a lots of bad decisions (like Sega) one of the was marketing other was quality, I used to be a huge fan of LG mobile phones since 2007 they produce great phone shine, Prada (the first attempt to make a real iPhone before Apple) even after that the produce great titles LG G2 LGG3 However after that they had a main problem Quality their phone starts to stop working after only one year (and that happened to me not just in one phone many many times) I don't know if that intentional to make the customer buy another one quickly but if that was the case that would probably be the dumbest decision they ever made!!! because they make the customer turning their backs to them a go to other companies (including me)

    It's my last week with my LG G6 before im buying myself a new galaxy phone. All of my smartphones were LG and i always felt a little fan of them, having refused to buy better performing android phones like galaxy or oneplus, because i loved the design and all the cool creative features of LG and i was proud buying innovative phones like the modular G5 (started with the great G3). Actually i used to watch Marques videos 5 6 years ago when i was more interested in the tech world, and today i came by to see galaxy reviews. Anyway, it's nice to see your vids again (gave me nostalgia), and that video was very fitting before i say goodbye for good for such a brave revolutionary and special company like LG and their phones that supported me for 7 years or so :)

    I had an LG G2 years ago. It was my first smartphone. Software skin was really ugly....but it was also incredibly difficult to mod. Back in the days of CyanogenMod I was able to get it installed. But it wasn't easy to root. Or Flash roms because it turned out if you did take one of their rare updates, it breaks flashing as it only worked with specific radios. So you'd have to flash a new (old) radio and then flash the custom rom. By the end I wanted to throw it off a roof. And honestly left a really bad taste in my mouth with LG. Its a shame but I can't say I'm surprised.

    LG Stylo 4, LG V30, LG V40thinq, LG G8thinq, LG Wing 5G... If they came out with another phone and stayed in the phone industry, I'd still buy it. I have had fun with literally every LG phone I've owned. It fit just the right spot for someone who always wanted to find new and exciting features in their phone, for those who want to look at a phone and think, "what else can this piece of hardware in my hand do." I feel bad that LG has taken their leave from the Phone market, but at least they can just continue dominating others, considering how well they do with their OLED technology. LG, you will be missed... Woulda loved to try out your future LG T-800thinq, that probably woulda had a fucking laser, microwave and maybe even tried to take over the world, but oh well! I'll just stick to the Wing. p.s. - to clarify, I mostly mean I'll miss the phones, LG as a company is well known for having horrible customer support... they just honestly couldn't give a shit considering the Wing is still on Android 10 since release with no date on when A 11 will release, so their promise to continue 3 years of support is kinda bs. They honestly kinda dug their own grave in the phone market if anyone should be blamed. Innovators? yeah... Good Guy LG, not a chance? Just another soulless company, like the rest, just trynna make a buck too many.
