Personally i want LG to keep existing. Their phones are the quickest to get massive price cuts and with a few months wait, you can buy their phones for really good prices.
Specs and design are also top-notch. The only disappointing aspects usually are the mediocre battery life, inferior camera quality & slow software updates.
VIC, 30 Jan 2019Meanwhile in the Philippines, LG pulls out their entire market. *SMH*Less competition in the states due to the Huawei ban? XD
Crazy LG!!! 2019 will be LG's year.
The lg v30 is probably the best phone you could get today considering it's crazy features and price. The phone is around 400$ (only 300$ on Aliexpress, crazy) but comes with a quadDAC which if you would want to get one separately would cost you around 400$, plus headphones which are around 100-150$ . You also get one of the best OLED screens of today (early models had some problems but latter ones resolved them), 2 great cameras (the wide angle one is truly insane), a very good speaker (not the best but not the worst either), 2 microphones which can record HD sound up to 142db (the only phone that can do that), manual photo and video controls and water and durabillity standard (this thing wont break easily even tough is made of glass) and much more that I don't have the time to tell you. Also is very thin and light and looks like a jewel. The only thing I hate is that you cannot replace the battery and the removal of the IR blaster.
Is it just me, or you guys also think that Samsung, LG etc are getting crazy with those prices of their flagships? +1000$ for phone? Jesus
how about display, will be already amoled? and in display fingerprint sensor? will be there finally or againg disgustang old fashioned again at back.. ? how about stereo repro and notch?(hope only teardrop or no notch phone, else i will interest another brand..

I always had interest in Sony and LG phones, HTC not so much but it's nice to see what's going on with their next flagship. Now I think all 3 brands left my country since Huawei has been killing the competition here after they became mainstream.

LG might be in the same state right now, but at least they are doing something good, such as being the only screen supplier of true HDR10 capable OLED screens, incredible Hi-Fi Quad DAC, nice versatile camera software controls, and military grade protection.
Sony, on the other hand, is just pretty much up there with the best, but not being exactly as known. Their ideas are still used by many manufacturers today, and they're still supplying about 40% of the smartphone makers with their superb camera sensors, which is definitely giving them a lot of profit to sustain their nearly closing mobile division
Now if they allot more of their profit into proper advertisings and improving market share and aftersale services, then it might easily turn things around for them in just a few years.
So from the most sustainable to least sustainable state, it would be Sony>LG>HTC
2019 will be the year of Xiaomi. Already Redmi Note 7 kicks asses with price/power. All I need is a phone with decent desktop mode and I say good bye to Samsung.
Last chance for LG before they become obsolete. And speaking of obsolete, anyone else noticed the complete silence regarding HTC U13?
LGÂ’s plan to win the 5G battle with Samsung, Huawei and Xiaomi is to focus on the hardware instead of software. Specs supremacy is typically SamsungÂ’s game, so weÂ’ll see how that goes.
When did LG ever focus on Software?

Do not talk nonsense !!!
Even the G80 & V500 won't save LG.
Overpriced compared to competitors & very, very slow updates for their flagships.
LG are the Dodo of phones if they don't adjust their strategy.
well, i used to love LG, until they keep cuting costs in phone making it with less features or region specific ones.
Since they already cut IR Blaster, and do region specific models with Quad-DAC or wireless charging and dont put all togheter worldwide i think LG will have a bad moment now.
My G6 wich i really love, even without have none of the features above sayid but well, its a well made phone, but now they need to step up and be gone with that stuP|d notch, nobody like it, LG you need to be original and bring back the things we used to know LG for.
G line could be dead for sure, V series is what they are for right now so, gone with G and step the game with V.
