They should keep the series and keep up the innovative ideas. Just work more over the quality, the software. Overall are underrated phones, that are however among the best on a lower price.
Stupid decisions after all. You already established your series name, why change and mess things up?

I mean... The G4 has an official Nougat update released on different countries except Western Europe???
LG and Sony I would put both on the same bag, they don´t have a clue on what they´re doing right now

Calling the G7 som... more Although the G4 had horrible software issues, the hardware and specs were amazing. The G4 was also very durable. I used to smash it on display tables 20 times per customer to prove its durability over apple products. The G5 felt and looked like a rush job. Understandably so given the G4. The cool thing about the G5 is that it was modular. The G6 felt "premium: and had awesome specs. There were just so many other devices at that time that looked better and that is what LG needs to work on. Devices having that eye appeal. Too many companies play it safe on colors ways. Give use something that brings energy to the market. Color plays a lot into mood and attraction.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018You forgot C series and Galaxy On series XDTrue, but those are unavailable in my country xD
But yeah, Samsung has lots of phones too.
I simply wonder why? Like to give people some kind of diversity? Like to get almoust flagship like camera in exchange for lower specs or oposite?
I believe there's gotta be a reason for this, just I still don't know it.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018S8 is the first with 18:9 screen. The S8 with 16:9 screen rumors came out earlier than the G6 ... moreThe S8 has an 18.5:9 screen ratio actually, and even then it wasn't the first for bezeless rumours. LG wouldn't need to copy Sammy when phones like the Mi Mix already existed.
G4, G5, G6 all pretty much flopped, the name didnt have much to do with it. Calling the G7 something else wont help its still going to flop if its a turd device.

I meant 18:9 screen, not 16:9.
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2018Actually LG was among the first if not THE first to use 18:9 screen.The S8 with 16:9 screen rumors came out earlier than the G6 with 16:9 screen rumors.
DamiDev, 03 Jan 2018copying from samsung and apple ?
LG G6 it's the first phone with the new aspect ratio 18:9
... moreS8 is the first with 18:9 screen. The S8 with 16:9 screen rumors came out earlier than the G6 rumors.
But it's not about only the screen. I was talking about the complete design and features.
A simple but proper brand name and the launch or release year should suffice. Then again, they will have to conceptualize and stick to their newly created brand name just as Samsung, Sony, Sharp, Google, ZTE, Motorola, Xiaomi, and Apple have stuck with their respective flagship product lines throughout the years. But it is not like a rename would automatically map them on the charts. Besides HTC's Desire and Butterfly line, they did not have a consistent naming scheme for their flagship devices; at some point, they decided to drop the 'One' moniker. Damn Huawei, however, dropped their 'Ascend' label on their P and Mate series, their market sales and popularity are still doing fine
Anonymous, 03 Jan 2018Simple go with the year of launch. LG G18 I like that. Either that or G40 to seem similar to V40
dfsf, 04 Jan 2018names doesn't matter broIf phone was named DingDong69 I somehow think it would have an impact on some consumers.
Anonymous, 04 Jan 2018That's nothing compared to Xiaomi's phones. For the number 4 alone - There's the Xiaomi Redmi... moreLMAO why do they have so many phones? xD
Also, Samsung has more line-ups of phones, at first it doesn't look that complicated.
You mainly have J, A, S and Note series.
Then you have A5 2016, A5 2017 and now A5 2018 is coming.
J series is even more complex, you have J7, J7 pro, J7 2017, J7 Prime.
And I'm Samsung fan, I know differences in A series, but J series... I literally have no idea.
So I don't really have clue why any of those companies have that many phones.
Its just a number like pink its just a color.
All is in head.
Only a clumsy and stupid people would take a number in name as a part of something special.
Why not name the phone with something totaly unique.
Like for example LG Raichu, or Charizard.
Or LG M.O.P.I.H. Which stands for Most Advanced Phone In History :-)
If LG is to thrive as a serious cellphone manufacturer they have to improve their quality control. I've had a number of their phones, the last being the LG V20. I had to return two of them for various problems before I struck gold with the 3rd one, which turned out to be a good, problem-free daily driver. The thing with LG is their phones look great on paper but it's in the real world execution that they fall short of the mark. Case in point: the V30 was touted as having the one of the best cameras because of the wider aperture but it struggles with clarity in anything less than ideal shooting conditions. This along with the absence of all the features that the V20 had is what made me choose a Note 8 when it came time to upgrade.
