    Naur for real even the knock knock ft. I just commented like minutes ago but I've had the knock knock ft since 2012? And I was afraid to leave to a different manufacturer solely for lg things like that the little things. Surprised me when my current samsung s21 could do that for as looong as I could remember lgs only did that so I had no clue

      war flashback I remember my friend in senior yr had a v30 and I remember wanting one so bad, like actually it was my dream phone at the time but for some reason it was more expensive than the g7 even if it was like a yr old so I never bought it. Gonna cry ndicdkxic

      I'm just gonna thread comments hear as I continue watching it... speaking of the updates, when I first got the g7 it was still sorta new so updates weren't rare but one of the last ones was where they messed up my screenshot ft like before I would just screenshot and the preview would be in the notifications but after that update, they made the preview show up on the bottom right corner of the screen which is pretty common BUT PROBLEM WASSSS is that it would not let you press on anything else when u touched the screen until the ss preview went away. That was my biggest issue with the phone, but I don't blame the phone since it was really just due to an update, not the phone itself. I always hoped a newer update would fix the issue but it never did :/

    It makes mee saaad sad I've had 3 lg phones since the 5th grade and I just switched to a samsung I feel like I betrayed my g7. It's not the BEST it could obviously do more if it wanted to through the power of updates but still it was my baby for 3 yrs😭 I changed it by want not by need and I wish I wouldn't have betrayed it so soon😭 I'm never buying phones for want again unless it's really old and I need an upgrade

    I've been through a dozen G2's and G3's, the v10, v20 and even the v40. Hell I even have had the LG urbane for yeeeears. I loved my dual screens and was so sad losing them. The fun I've had over the years with the silly, weird and amazing features that were so fun. That was an amazing fucking feature and I have no idea what I'm going to do when I need a new phone. Like... What do us LG nerds go now????

    Problem was software updates. I bought a g7 and extremely happy with the hardware, but it never got off android 9. Granted, the fact that YOU didn’t do a proper LG review after about the G4 probably didn’t help.

    • Davis Lawrence
      Davis Lawrence

      @Gurinder lotey well yeah. I said that. But it doesn't help that there was a distinct lack of coverage of the phones at times. G5,G6,G7 does not help. But LG gets no sympathy from me. I have a snapdragon 845 paperweight because I really don't want to still be using Android 9. Meanwhile they were supposedly opening a software center to fix their update problem.

    My first phone from LG, the G2, was probably the first phone to introduce the world (unintentionally) with a bezel-less design. It was a beautiful phone, and I still casually look for a used one on market to buy. Such a memorable device it was!! I still own one LG G7 as my secondary phone and apart from some battery life issues, I absolutely enjoy it! It's a multimedia powerhouse! You'll be thoroughly missed, LG!❤️

  • J. DeCourcy

    My problem with lg (back in the day) was anyone around me who had one it was always buggy and it’s features weren’t as good as apple, samsung, htc or Motorola. So for me it left a bad taste and I never gave them a chance and would persuade others away from it.

    • Nocturnal Guy

      @J. DeCourcy so you're just going to ignore antenna gate bend gate, cheap power chargers by Apple? I have had many issues with Samsung including issues when it comes to transferring data.

    • J. DeCourcy
      J. DeCourcy

      @Nocturnal Guy the things I seen were down right broken and the software never got fixed, and the phones themselves being cheap feeling. No phone is ever perfect but Samsung and apple make quality phones compared to what lg had.

      Iphone had issues and were buggy and less storage....ppl didn't mind, Samsung phone were buggy and lagged over time....ppl didn't mine. However ppl never forgave LG for it's buggy software. At least it wasn't banned from the US airlines due to it being a fire hazard.

    You know what's going to happen next if you have a LG phone even if your phone works good you going to have to upgrade to a different brand and pay more money Once they take them COMPLETELY OFF OF THE MARKET SMDH They didn't tell you that part now did they ??

  • kyeoptawerk93

    i've had quite a few lg phones, i have/had at least 3. the env was the phone i had to beg my parents to get and i had to pay for it myself with bday/holiday money. i had the olive green one. i'm actually upgrading from my lg g5 now (didnt know it was the first ultra wide!). had it for a few years and it did well for the price i paid for it. i'm pretty sad about lg quitting phones but there's so many competitors it's not necessarily a surprise

  • CursedFox

    fanboys and marketing. i had 2, g2 and v30, two of my favorite phones. but i was never "convinced" i needed a laptop for a phone. lg was more like pixel or oneplus, they tried to be more practical and innovate where they could, some didn't work out, but some did.

    the LG G8 & LG WING offer more features that are practical for my needs than any other phone brand out there. I'm extremely upset about there decision to stop making phones. in a world of monopolized overpriced garbage. They provided me with features that were more useful for me. I dont care AT ALL about palm gestures. but unlocking the phone with a palm reading. is the BEST unlock feature EVER for a Semi Truck Driver. of any phone. plus the storage and headphone support, means music while jogging and movies while waiting at a dock yard in my semi truck. The LG WING, is the absolute best phone for a truck driver as well. I only wish it had a palm reading unlock feature and a headphone jack, and same waterproofing. But it does make up for those lack of features by allowing me, to set the LG WING on my Qi Wireless Car Charger in my car and semi truck. In Wing Mode. and watch google maps, while i change stations in iHeart Radio, or amazon music, without ever having to close a app to do it make phone calls while watching movies, playing games while replying to a text. checking my motion sensor security camera at home while still having my gps displayed so i wont miss a turn. the LG WING & G8 Are the Best Phones Period, idc about all the other stuff. They do things for me no other phone companies can do. so them opting out, breaks my heart. foreal foreal. I've lost spouses that didn't affect me this much.

  • BobFiddleDoodle

    LG died because at some point in its history people associated their cell phones with cheap cheap CHEAP quality. Idk why or when it happened but it did. All of my friends were surprised whenever I showed them a modern LG because to them LG was the default for cheap Android you get with your carrier. Hell even though I knew LG made pretty good phones and I knew which LGs were good, I still never bought one because I STILL thought of them as cheap. It's weird

    Switched from an iPhone 4 to LG G3 and was hooked on the LG phones. Then I went with the G5 for the awesome wide angle camera. Now I'm using the G7 which has been a great phone for a couple years. I've always liked the innovations in their high end models and they were typically less expensive than the more popular brands. I really feel that LG did a poor job marketing their phones. Ask some random person what smartphone they have, the answer will probably be an iPhone or Samsung because people are so easily influenced by what they see on TV or other media sources. Most will also automatically associate an Android phone with Samsung even though there are many other options. For LG it seemed that the phone market was just some side gig to have fun with rather than really pushing it for sales. Of the people I've ever talked with that have used a LG smartphone most all of them said they really liked the phones and a majority were still using them as their main phones. I do think LG will be missed from the market. Taking away a company who's brought so much to what a smartphone is today is a big hit to everyone and future innovation.
