Why not Huawei or Sony instead?
Their batteries can last up to 800 cycles in comparison to usually 400 cycles of LG's.
Or meh, Apple without Steve Jobs, is a Sony hater by using their own ideas like Power Button Fingerprint Scanner and IP Rating.
I don't know why lg had to supposedly put so much money into that. Being malleable has been an advantage of lithium polymer batteries for years. Abe they can hold higher capacities compared to lithium ion
