Unveils their flagship latest among other bran... moreNot only LG...many of the traditional OEMs like Samsung, HTC, Sony etc are all experiencing decreased sales due to the avalanche of very good, well specced low priced devices from a multitude of Chinese OEMs. To be ahead of the curve..LG has realized the era of over priced flagships might be a thing of the past. This same advice goes to HTC as well..add bigger batteries and slimmer bezels to their to do list.
While Samsung keep shoving there prices up but keep taking that most important thing away SD card And removable battery.hope that one day instead of egnoring customers request they start listening just for once !
LOL at the comments that want LG to increase the battery! Like what do you want? 10000 mah?
Let's see, for those arguing that samsung will lose because of the glass design, no sd card, and lesser battery. What do you think now that LG is declining? Their phone offers what you were arguing about, even Sony but they are still losing!
Let's face it, everyone in the Android high-end/mid-range market is loosing in the past 6/12 months. The majority who paid usd 600 for an Androis device switched to Apple with less troubles and better re-selling price. Chinese makers are aggressively entering the mid-range and already occupy the low-range. Samsung is moving to IOT devices, Sony prioritize their PS4, HTC betting on VR handsets, chipset makers are moving to automotive, drone, etc..
They shouldn't even use a Skin, make it as Stock as possible. Keep Duel screen, and the features their current phones have. I have the G3 and its not the best experience I've had with a phone. It was my first flagship and it got a real sour taste in my mouth. Overheating issues, battery drains insanely fast and it takes forever to receive updates. For them to succeed (IMO) they have to price it competitively, Update their phones quickly, not a year later and either make a more attractive skin, or just use the already beautiful Stock look.
ithehappy, 17 Sep 2015Third class company, third class products, third class and cheap users, of course the price ha... moreif you look at the market share of these 3 companies then you will know what are you saying.. XD
LG must return to the basics that made it big, dual battery and lower bezels-edges of its smartphones (as the LG G2 or lower bezels), coupled with great performance and good updates. If they do this with a not too high price, they would be in the top again.
For a flagship phone to succeed, it should have flagship design, specs, and beautiful user interface.
1. Aesthetic Design for that "want" factor.
2. Flagship specs for that "value for money" feel.
3. Beautiful user interface to "hook" the users.
Apple has design, interface, and a little specs.
Samsung has specs, a copied design, and bearable interface.
LG ain't got no design specs or good user interface and the price is same as samsung so people go samsung or other brand android.
well - get the skin right and use some better looking materials and there will be no need to cut price
But i think, the best among LG's flagships is the G2..because of small screen-to-bezel ratio.
Third class company, third class products, third class and cheap users, of course the price has to be cheap otherwise no one will even look at those garbage.
There was no competition whatsoever with Samsung or Sony or HTC!
It's their fault if their sales is poor.
1. Unveils their flagship latest among other brands.
2. Less specs compared to same level samsung phones from flagship to budget phones but demands same price as samsung.
3. Budget phones break easily and poor repair service after sales.
4. Some designs are not really aesthetic.
5. LG Ui was better than samsung touch wiz but now touch wiz looks letter.
6. Nice features which samsung doesn't have but at the end of the day those little unique features are not enough.
7. Price your devices reasonably in proportion to specs and design.
if only lg increased the battery capacity of their phones specially the g4 then theres no competetion
Anonymous, 17 Sep 2015if they could double the battery life of their flagships...so stupid idea to double battery...say that to sammycrap and aiplejunk because they have worst battery's, and worst is not removal on S6 and etc! so dont talk crap!
LG have good battery, my G3 with the "brain-use" last long for about 3 days...
LG only have 4 high end phones at this time: LG G2, G3 and G4 and G Pro...other phones is all low-end, yeah, because i cant call LG G4c mid-range, mid-range today come with at least 16GB internal and 1.5/2GB of RAM...so, is good for the brand cut the prices, the market is not all about lost but is about sell, LG isnt the sammysht or aiple, they dont steal you, LG is a exelent brand with good prices (talking about high-ends compared to other brands)!
So, if you want a good phone with good price LG is the best choise, because they have the best prices now...and dont steal you like sammy and aiple!
LG can do it better if they launch the new G PRO, wich all talking about but i dont know why LG is slowing the launch of it! What you waiting for LG?????
regs, 17 Sep 2015Yet that's not enough. Move buttons back to sides and make them phones, not phablets - 4,9-5''.The back buttons are fine to use. the battery life sucks though. and problems start appearing after a while
