    Samsung should have quite not LG. LG has been great honestly Samsung sucks! I know people will be all defensive against them but honestly yes Samsung sucks I bought and would have kept and LG over any Samsung I do not support them as a company at all! Sorry not sorry try and change my mind but they suck and should be pulled from the US. I personally will support Apple or Google (Nexus/ Pixel) over a trashy Samsung.

    Personally, I had two LG phones, the LG 3 and the LG 5. The LG 3's GPS was just junk. Replacing it, even adjusting the antenna pins, nothing helped. I went ahead and swapped to the LG 5 after a couple of years and swapped in my LG 3... I wasn't impressed with the G5. Honestly, I don't recall exactly why I got rid of it, but over all it didn't impress me. I think I had stability issues. I think I went to the Moto Z2 Force after that... Loved that phone. In any case, LG soured me and I didn't look back. Probably just a specific use case with me.

    Lg system would significantly slow down after one year use..their software engineering is not very good ..also sometimes weird design..like few years ago in 2016 they sold a nice big screen phone Stylo similar to sumsung note..but only has 8g internal storage.. seriously..whoever designed that phone has brain damage...

    Was honestly looking to buy the G8 a while ago but ultimately, it along with all of LG's flagships have just been slightly lacking in comparison to like likes of Samsung's, Google's, Apple's, etc. They were solid all-around but very really good enough to compete in the top categories (i.e camera, display, etc) and that was their downfall.

    It is nice and all to talk about them now that they will not be making smartphones, but when was the last time you or any other influential Youtuber did a REAL review in the last 2-3 years on an LG phone like you are doing for Samsung, Apple, OnePlus or Xiaomi and really do something for the company, not just views? Views do not mean anything, I don't remember when I saw a review from you for an LG phone. LG died because its place was taken by OnePlus as the runner-up/underdog company, besides failing to deliver software updates.

    my favorite phone of all time is the LG VX 8350... it was such a crappy flip phone looking back but I'd be damned if i didn't have it... my mom justified it by getting herself the first LG Chocolate. my twin brother had both models of the Envy. it's so odd to think back and remember just how many LG phones I've really had over the years... I'll miss their fun designs and oddball features, but they have massive successes in other areas to focus on and improve. I wont miss the lack of software updates though, however, that always bothered me

    Later she had the G3 which had one of the worst cameras (and no pro settings to speak of) and it also died young. Eventually she banned LG entirely from our house. Based entirely on her LG phones

    I had both LG and also HTC. HTC's exit from the market was also painful. The HTC One still the best sounding phone (with front facing speakers) and lightyears ahead of any iphones at the time. Eventually Apple copied HTC's unybody and became the iphone 6 style and the same body design remained until 2020, even today most droids resemble the HTC One's original design.
    For LG, I had the Optimus in the early 2010s and then LG G6, which was one cool phone with amazing camera app (felt like a DSLR), but the battery was just weak. Sorry to see it go.
    I have an large LG 4K TV also, the screen quality is flawless, looks almost like it's more than 4K.

    I absolutely loved my G3, but I swore off LG after the multiple boot loop issues I had with that device and the replacements I received (apparently the V10 had a similar problem.) LG never remedied that situation or did right for their customers who suffered from their phones spontaneously and irrecoverably dying. Eventually my carrier replaced it with a Galaxy S6 and I haven't been off of Samsung since. LG were innovators in the market, but they didn't have a clue about customer service and actually supporting their products.

    LG's didn't buy sales by aggressive marketing, buttering up reviews etc, means that not paying for play even if some reviewer posthumously points that at least 10 innovations in smart phone arena where done by LG first everyone else copied. Then pointing out that LG committed the sin of using the most recent, but not the latest CPU to reduce cost to the consumer while being the first to make a dual screen phone with stylus capability on both screens, let just hope samsung runs with a dual screen case for the S and note series and try to make improvements to the close the gap between the screens, stick with flat screens for edge to edge writing experience and instead of offering this only in the top of the range only they might consider not using the latest CPU in the mid and low range versions so when coping LG tech they also consider the practicality of more affordable units.
    I guess he’s saying in his self summation as an influencer that others are alluding to that his type of reviewing wasn’t the only reason we are losing LG’s innovation in the smart phone industry but he does seem to be justifying  praising those that have copied LG’s innovations, apple, samsung, etc, it’s almost like he protests to much while doing a shaggy- it wasn’t me.

    Because it is a bad quality company. LG does not really stand for “Good Life” but “Lucky Goldstar”, a Low quality and crappy Chinese maker of consumer electronics, mainly TV. They decided to uplift their image and name (which Lucky and Gold and Star are Chinese Feng Shui auspicious words Feng Shui believers like using in business for good luck) by shortening their name to LG and coming up with that slogan of “Life is Good”.

    Unfortunately a lot of brands from China that are copying phones made by Sony, Samsung and LG are getting much more credit than Sony and LG, but cannot say the same about Samsung, which is very interesting to know how come Samsung is the only major one that doesn't lose the market and is still the number one in the market? It is interesting to know what can LG and Sony learn from Samsung on how to survive and even win Chinese brands and even win over Apple per sales of smartphones?
