Honestly, you're not missing out on much. The Wing has been my primary device for the past year, and it's a great idea that was executed poorly. The UI is buggy, and the phone never fully utilized the potential of the two screens. The only app pairs I use are YouTube/messaging and banking/calculator. Other than that, there's not much use for that second screen. If you like the idea of the second screen, it would be better to save some more money and get a Galaxy Fold. What crushed my soul was the LG keyboard. I loved the idea of using the smaller screen as the keyboard, but you can only use the LG keyboard for that function. I'm also a swipe texter. Swipe texting + LG keyboard = utter garbage.

I owned a G2 and a G3, they were awesome phones. The G2's knock-knock feature was especially practical at the time, and it made a lot of sense since the G2's control buttons were on its back (which is a design choice I also find pretty neat).

I think the "no camera bump" feature was also innovative. Reviewers often still complain about camera bumps. As for why you could not recommend LG phones based on spec's; LG's strategy seemed to be to leave some features out to undercut the other flagships on price. But flagships don't sell based on price either.

My LG V20 just died on me last week. I had that bad boy for five years, and while it certainly was no where near the fastest phone on the market now, the fact that it had a modern CPU, a replaceable battery, built-in condenser mic, and a headphone jack (with a very high quality DAC) made it unbeatable for me. Coupled by the fact that once you rooted it, put on LineageOS and the Google Camera app, it was a multimedia monster.

Loved my good old G3. Lasted the longest and aged the best out of any smartphone I've ever owned, and really was the only one that never really broke in any major way (only the battery got very bad after ~3 years of heavy daily use, understandably). Plus the power and volume buttons on the back was always super cool. I'm going to miss their phones!

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 had the LG G5 when it came out and I loved it. The ultra wide camera was awesome and it is cool to see it made it to so many phones now. But the real best feature was that you could easily pop the battery out. They sold extra batteries and a charging dock for them. I never had to charge my phone because of this, I just swapped the battery every time my phone was dying.

I have had an LG phone since the G2. Every single one. G2-G8, V20-V50. I bought one time, a different phone. The Samsung Exploder. Went right back and didn't turn around until there literally wasn't an option anymore. LG Wing was too expensive monthly and Verizon had an $800 off deal on S21 Ultras, effectively making it a $300 phone. I deeply miss them as I really liked all their wild ideas, even if it was abandoned fast. G5 was by far their best ever. It was supremely useful so frequently to hot swap a battery without losing my dada or place in what I was doing, even if I was mid text. Why it was abandoned? No one will ever know. It also functioned as a mobile battery with the whole case it came with.

My first Smartphone was the LG G2 and I've had like 5 more LGs since. LG has been the only smartphone I've had. I liked the module idea in the G5 but I didn't buy more modules because they got poor reviews and were pretty darn expensive. I right now have an LG G8X ThinQ. The phone with the duel screen attachment. I thought it was so awesome when I first got it but I rarely use the attachment. And my carrier, Sprint/T-Moble, said that I will have to get a new phone by the start of the new year because they won't support it anymore after that. LG Smartphones will be missed by me!!

I remembered that that phone was such a joy to use and it was such an amazing phone for the time being and for the price point I feel like this is why I was able to sell so much and why it’s still to this day when the more memorable phones

I just recently upgraded my LG V30 to a pixel pro and I can tell you that phone was miles ahead of what was out at the time. From it's HDR to it's 4k video to it's ultra wide lense it literally was future proof until it stopped getting updates and got buggy. But few people knew about it because LG didn't market it and few reviewers gave it a fair shake. Some even said things like oh well this ultra wide is cool but a telephoto is much more useful or 4k recording is cool but who wants Todo that in a phone... They also in every review would go over LGS horrible track record like they were not the only company with one lol. I'm seeing similar things with my pixel pro the reviewers point out every negative brush over all the things it's best at and pretend like it's not up to par with Samsung and apple lol

For anyone wondering ThinQ is LG's smart home all in one app, it allows you to control their appliances via a phone and was actually really good once you figured out how to use it. The name tag (I would assume) was to tell you the phone supported it but I would assume since it all went over wifi that any phone would support it.

All they had to do was keep their head phone Jack's, removable battery, extendable storage, upper second screen, double-tap wake up, and the dual sound software.

LG has always put out great phones on the paper. But I had a G3, I loved it but at less than 2 years, the GPU broke, leaving black vertical bands on the screen. I think it was caused by overheating problems, which really depend on the design and testing. Never happened with other phones.

@American Freedom World Peace because reviewers have conditioned people how to think. IPhones have never been compatible with SD cards, still use 12MP cameras from 2008, don't come with chargers or headphones, always have 5 year old tech when released as new. It us the most expensive phone to own. It makes no sense to own a super expensive phone in 2021 with 2016 and 2008 technologies in it. You can't put a SD card in it so you have to pay every month for cloud storage. If you are so inclined to spend a grand on the phone get a galaxy, it costs far less to own.

Of course, it's a big help, but you can also do the same things with a Pixel 4a and a 500$ Laptop.

LG G3 was my favourite phone out of all the phones I've ever had. Even thought of buying it again when the battery died. LG will definitely be missed.

@Versus Battle Like go and try compare the s21 ultra with the 12 pro max, or the Mi 11 ultra ect. It really is just BETTER. You comparing everything else other than the good just doesnt make sense in my perspective. I mean the Mi 11 ultra has a better camera, charges faster, has better performance. The s21 ultra has a better screen out the three, (arguably) better ui, it just cant be fair if your going to compare the lower end/androids that failed, instead of the ones that didnt??

@Versus Battle Yet again your comparing very few select android phones. Android has a wider range of devices, and you can easily pick out quite a few android phones that are great and some comparable or better than new iphones. Picking out the shit phones will give shit results, picking out the good ones though, and thats a completely different subject.

I miss LG Stylo 5 and 3 because I loved the feature to customise things and of course the pen and the headphone jack, the expandable memory and OTG.(of course there are other phones have it) It was unfortunate and I decided to switch to iPhone because LG mobile industry has been discontinued. Honestly LG phones were amazing and I loved it.

Even without the modules (which I didn't really fully believe in, to be honest) the G5 is one of my favorite phones ever. The repairability is outstanding, and replaceable batteries is such a no-brainer I'm upset so few phones have it. That said, it was hardly problem free - but I still love the thing.

I bought a G3 after I lost my damn Motorola at a Home Depot. I eventually bought a Samsung S9 years later and had my photos transferred over and I remember being quite surprised about how well the photos looked. I now have an iPhone XS, which is my first iPhone. I couldn't afford one back then.

I always thought LG made some very impressive phones. What killed it for me was the boot loop issue with the G4/V10. I had a V10 that encountered that issue just after my warranty expired. Tough luck for me being stuck with a $500 brick.

I got the LG G2 mini in 2014 and I really loved double tap to turn on/off the screen, which my phones later all didn't have that. The G2 mini also had an remote app to use your phone as a remote control which I used a lot to troll random people from outside zapping on their tv. Good memories with that phone.

Ok I have been a long time user of LG (switched over after the first iPhone). I recently switched from the G8 thin q to a Samsung Note 9 so the hardware is comparible. What I noticed is a huge difference in the fluidity of use regarding user interface, basically LG's software now seems clunky/unrefined.

@Marko Zivanovic Corporate. Often corporate lays out unrealistic expectations, which causes turmoil for the programmers who are doomed for failure, so they don't even attempt to deliver a usable product because of the corporate bullshit. "Build this skyscraper", but all you have to work with is spit and toothpicks. That is impossible, so programmers attempt and fail to build the skyscraper when corporate could have asked for something a bit more realistic and gotten something actually usable out of it in the end. Sadly, corporations often eventually get lead by marketting people, and they absolutely don't understand the physical limitations of certain things in the real world, and think that if they squeeze the programmers hard enough, they can do literal magic. And of course, out of that comes failure. Everytime.

I owned a LG smartphone in 2012, died in 6 months. I heard from friends that they had similar experience. So I think the build quality probably wasn't the best. I remember the LG Prada being a very cool phone around 2008.

Damn. I've had an LG since I got my first smartphone. It was a G2 circa 2012. Technically my parents got me a Samsung, but it was DOA when I got home from high school so they took me back up to the store and let me choose another model. I've maintained an LG ever since, bouncing back and forth from the G line to the V line. I did flirt with a sorta-budget Moto a couple years ago during a less financially stable time and loved it, so I guess I can at least take comfort in Moto phones for the near future. But damn it's gonna be hard to adjust after using this G8 for so long. I'm pretty sure after I replace this one on my insurance thanks to yet another destroyed screen it will be the last time they'll do it. I even got a note in the box when I ordered my last replacement that they couldn't guarantee another one. I'm honestly contemplating buying like 6-10 in bulk from China and just using a flashed OS when they stop support. I could die having used nothing else lol. I just can't get behind supporting Sam or Ap. Edit: and OnePlus is just a perfect example of why you can't blindly trust any mobile phone manufacturer, no matter how cool and underdog they start out.

Good analogy @Augústo Williams. I think LG should have tried to innovate its business model rather than its smartphones. Sometimes when you aren't a market leader like Samsung/Apple, you have to approach the market differently to secure your market share. Look at OnePlus for example, they started out with a queue system to purchase a moderately priced device. That OnePlus One also had a slightly different OS too. Maybe If LG had re-positioned its smartphones as a sustainable alternative (a market segment with barely any brands), then it might be in a better position today. Imagine if LG picked up where Fairphone started? Recycled materials, durable, low price, less phone, exchange programme etc. Unlike Fairphone, they would have been able to market themselves as a "Whole Foods" of smartphones.

All LG G phones from G3 to G6 had major issues (the boot loop G4 being the worst one possibly). People reportedly tried to fix their phones under warranty and LG didn’t give a shit about them (it’s US I’m talking about so I imagine customer service being worse in other places). Also 1 year of late android update and MAYBE another year of security update. They lost their space in the mobile market because they were negligent regardless of the innovation

To me, LG always came off as a "little brother" to Samsung in the Android space. Always 2nd place. They made some good phones, but nothing ever really stood out to me as "great", and Samsung phones just felt better and more refined. Their software was pretty bland too. The only LG phone I ever owned was the V10, which did appeal to me because of the 2nd screen, but was really just their answer to Samsung's edge screen from the Note Edge. Problem was, the battery life was terrible, even after buying multiple batteries, and I only kept it for 1 year before trading it in for a Samsung phone (S8). I checked out on LG altogether when they started shamelessly copying Apple's notch like every other company, for no logical reason other than "just because". That's basically when innovation died for them.

I owned multiple LG phones. I had a G3, V20, V30, V40. Mainly because I bought them on clearance from ATT and they were cheap. My main problem with LG was they never stuck with anything, they had some interesting concepts but it was always abandoned in their next phone. So this doesn't give confidence to the consumer if they do like something that came out.

My first smart phone, the Lg Optimus V. The Optimus One on pre-paid Virgin Mobile. Started with a super affordable buy-in, with cheap 90 day service. Trying to get out of my burner at the the time, I stumbled on it at Walmart and paid $50 or something for it, before there was any press about it... wasn't totally sure what it was as a phone. Watched the price go up & up on it over the following year once it caught on. Flogged the hell out of it over four years. Sprint bought VM and raised the service price. Kept holding on, milkin' the old phone & plan. Finally HAD to get out of it due to obsolescence. Had to clear cache all the time to do ANYTHING on it😆😂 First DECENT pre-paid smart phone.

My first good phone was the LG Q7 plus and it was so good. It had all of the features newer phones had such as quad DAC, adjusting eye comfort, accessibility features, a nice metal trim around the edges, super light weight, 4G, and face/fingerprint id. It was also very affordable and easy to use. I wish LG could've been more consistent, but I'll miss their phones. BTW I recently switched to a OnePlus and it's just not the same. The gallery doesn't even have a collage maker already on it. The LG even had that being a 4G phone.

The LG v20 was my first brand new flagship phone I received for my birthday. I loved it’s removable aluminum plated back, and it’s cameras took amazing photos, but the thing thermal throttled any time it went outside, basically unusable. Then randomly Verizon stopped activating sims for it, so I learned the hard way with swapping my sim, I had to get a new phone. Not a fun day.

Hey MB, this video was SO important for me to watch. My husband has used the LG V series for four years because he is recording his vocal performances, and the video was just too amazing. So what do we do when his V60 is finished? What can we get that will shoot such amazing ultra wide video with amazing editing features? You're the person I thought I'd ask first! What is even comparable? We haven't used Samsung for 5 years because they really shafted us all with their continuous USB port failures and constant charging issues - they never would listen to the complaining customers. That is how we moved over to LG. I am very skeptical of Samsung now because of it, and ambivalent about giving them another chance, unless someone like you thinks I should give them a chance again. Thanks!

LG G2/G3 were great. (At the Time) fat battery, great (back then unseen) screen/body ratio, good audio, decent camera, perfect size, good price.I had a G2 for over 4 years. The bad: - Horrible update situation (especially because they KEPT guarantying timely updates to their customers, but never delivered.) This was my main critique. - horrible/slow software. Their software made the phones unresponsive and slow. Oh boi, the G7 and my Poco F1 have the same SoC, but the speed difference on stock is insane. The G2 was similar. Really slow with stock, excellent with LineageOS. - G4 and up had hardware "bootloop" issues (desoldering SoC was the real reason). Those were the main problems. G2 was amazing, G3 a worthy successor, G4/G5/G6 had a bad H/W quality. G7/G8 are okay, but software was bad as always. All in All, the G2 was their best phone in my opinion. It had many fans, and still to this day gets official LineageOS builds, if it weren't for the (by now) slow SoC, I would still use it as a daily driver.
