Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015They're all failures in light of the S6 too. M9 was actually nice. Just too expensive. SGS 6 doesn't give any wow effect. It shoudn't have been exist. SGS 6 Edge should have been their flagship and available device.
If LG provide android 6 for g2 and g3 will be big step . Longer support for the device's will bring more clients. Is my personal opinion.
regs, 17 Sep 2015It's still more expensive than SGS 6. Cost same as Z3+ and One M9.They're all failures in light of the S6 too.
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015Price of LG G4 haw been slashed 40% since launchIt's still more expensive than SGS 6. Cost same as Z3+ and One M9.

Camera is excellent though and the screen is decent too. Plus advertising wasn't a problem either. I saw far more LG G4 adverts than S6 ones. The problem I think lies in making their main flagship too big. The demographic where I live doesn't like to venture too far from the 5 inch sweet spot. 5.5 is just too big for some people. It's also a rather boring design in my opinion. The G3 was far more attractive. Plus the leather thing was a bit meh. I personally never liked it on any phone (Even my Note 3 that I adored). The only occasion where it works is with a flip case. Anyway, I think LG, HTC and Sony got it all wrong in the first half of this year. Sony's M4 was more exciting than the Z3+ and HTC's One M9 was a complete disaster.
Manufacturers have been raising and inflating their prices year after year.
(especially Samsung - but not only that). It is notable that the smartphone prices inflate...
it's like a smartphone price bubble.
Now, how's the economy doing? Are people getting raise every year?
seems like what is on increase - is world instability, migration and layoffs.
Only this year, HP lays off 55 000 employees.
55 thousand people! and that's only one company.
I'm wondering, till what moment will this bubble last.
i will not be paying 900 Euros for a smartphone, and hope you will not too.
it's just throwing out your hard earned money
I think LG's biggest mistake this year was going cheap on the G4. They should have gone with the Snapdragon 810 instead of the 808, I mean with a hexacore processor instead of the more powerful octacore, they basically delegated their high-end flagship down to mid-level specs in promise of a 'more powerful' device at the end of the year. They should have gone Samsung's route and just gone and included the more powerful 810 and had their 2 flagship phones. =\
LG make very good phones with top notch specs that are often underrated, just wish they would bring updates more regularly and maybe use more premium materials in the design of the next LG flagship
LaHedare, 17 Sep 2015It's their fault if their sales is poor. 1. Unveils their flagship latest among other bran... moresorry but lg devices are well priced..if u purchase these froma carrier most of times and most of then will even double the prices in order to offer a plan in wich your device will be not that expensive paying montly for it and the plan but the fact is that it doubles the price ..i live in colombia and the g4 and gflex 2 are way overpriced over 2 million pesos wich translated to dollar are close to 670 us ... well thats too much if i compared to amazon prices in us where i can find easy the same devices for even the hal for example gflex 2 320 us brandnew and g4 400 us .. contract free...so if we have some to blame are cell companies insted of manufacture for the prices only exeption is apple wich is expensive no matter what
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015Samsung ultra power saving mode can last the phone for a month.I bet you want to use your 600$ phone in black n white mode for a month.
I think LG's new line up including the G4 Beat has very good specs for its value. I recommend it! I wasn't paid to say any of this but for their screen quality and Android layout, I think this phone will outshine others like the Samsung A3 and A5 and most of the chinese phones of the same class.
I love LG. Maybe the reason for poor sales is their poor advertisements. The hardware is top of the notch. Remember they are the ones who brought us QHD display. But Their UI is so-so and I'm looking forward to G5 for improvements in this area. It could be better. But I enjoy using LG and I think to be having it for a while. Currently using G2 D802. Still rocking!
LG is one of my favourite android makers for Nexus. For non-nexus devices only Moto and Sony give a real clean android experience with only Sony guaranteed for long time support. (I hear Moto will improve too) For me it's either the new LG Nexus or the almost flawless regular Z5. The only company that took their time with optimising that lousy QC 810 with heat sinks and give excellent battery performance while still updating the Z1 with the latest of Android (now). This is a tough year for android fans because of the failed 810 and you know that new smartphone will be outdated when the 820 arrives which is very soon. Apple is going to have a field day this year because of Qualcomms failure. And android fans' choices have never been tougher.

Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015if you look at the market share of these 3 companies then you will know what are you saying.. XDLike I give a damn about market share!
Market share even remotely doesn't have anything to do with what I said!

Sit apple, eat apple, believe apple come on its way behind others. The only reason people buy apple is as they have always had apple and all their contacts etc. etc. are on apple servers what nonsense. It was the first smart phone in the world but others have gone ahead. Apple is not a status symbol anymore. It was 2-3 years back
