They did something similar with G2, only 16GB model here in Brazil...
Shame on you LG... again..
Herodroid, 27 Feb 2016Who the hell makes these decisions once again... Why no same version for all regions? why Sams... moreI believe the reason is to maximise profits for the company. That's why there are many versions of a product. Removing or swapping some features (bands, chipsets, ram, etc.) are all part of price discrimination. Apple doesn't do this because they have very high profit margin on each iphone so it matters less to apple than companies such as Samsung
AnonD-234961, 27 Feb 2016LG should have been fair and name that latin America G5 with another name lilke "G5L" or somet... moreits okey since LG isn't that big deal company. there are a lot far better than them like Apple or even Samsung. LG isn't a big company like that two others I mentioned so this might be not so big deal at all... :))
AnonD-486125, 27 Feb 2016Then why Samsung bother keep using SD soc For different markets.
" Latin America will get a Snapdragon 652 + 3GB RAM variant of the LG G5, no VR 360 headset "
What a Cheap Cheat from LG.
AnonD-292864, 27 Feb 2016Exynos S7 is better than Snapdragon S7.Then why Samsung bother keep using SD soc
considering that the LG G5 itself already was made very cheap! (cheapo body and display build) and now they make it even more worse for some markets? PATHETIC!
LG should have been fair and name that latin America G5 with another name lilke "G5L" or something. It's not fair to the people to market all that processing power and then deliver them a half-powered phone.
They should have used a different name such as LG G5 lite or something which will not confuse consumers.
Not buying g5 this time, move to another brand... Looks like LG think latin america dont deserve high end hardware!
[deleted post]Who the hell makes these decisions once again... Why no same version for all regions? why Samsung logo only on the back for Korea and Japan and clean front? why Sony removes fingerprint in USA? Why No sd820 in Europe for s7? I can name more and more examples... But why not offering same or many offers in all regions? not restricting? shit
