    My ex-sister-in-law had an LG phone some time ago, and she handed it to me to try to figure out why it kept messing up. This was 2017, and I'd just transitioned to the S8+ at the time, my ex-wife and I usually got the same phones simply because she wanted me to be able to help solve issues, but her sister stuck with her old LG. I took one look and told her there was just no way to fix it, it was an 8GB phone. The memory was clotted, just like the terrible F Tab my ex bought me. She ended up getting a purple S8+ and simply fell in love with it.

    My son got a Stylo 4, but he quickly became disenchanted with it and moved to a better phone. He's running a Moto G Power 2020 right now. Moto is making some nice phones at a decent price point, but who knows how they'll end up. They've been a hot potato for years, now.

    Feeding off the bottom hurt them badly. And I rarely see them marketing very much. That contributed to the death of BlackBerry, as well.

    Yep Moto actually makes pretty good phones for the money... especially on sale You just have to accept that with that budget price comes some sacrifices, like lack of updates.

    Me either! For the longest time, I was an LG fan boy. I still am somewhat, but they are obviously not what they used to be...
    I agree with you. I would have for sure gotten an LG device but the camera performance was not what I wanted.

    Thanks for posting that tweet.

    LG Pay no longer works for me. Not that I used it alot but w/Samsung Pay getting rid of MST, LG pay was the only other one that used this.

    Oh well, Google Pay is accepted in more places than before but the new app sucks.

    That means they won't be making any Pixel devices in the future I guess? Damn shame.

    unless you send money to people you should still be able to use the old app. I am still using the old one. just got to put up with a nag screen to install the new.

    was LG pay abandoned or you are just having issues?

    I was able to use LG Pay before but looking at the play store I think they just said screw it and didn't bother updating anymore. I can't even open it and have uninstalled reinstalled and force closed, cleared cache data etc etc.

    I use Google Pay (new app) but I still have the old app on my phone until they kill it off. The new app is poorly designed.

    I was eyeballing the Velvet, myself, because I'm in part of AT&T's lighter 5G coverage, and their 4G isn't all that great as it is around here. My Note 9 battery is definitely losing its pep. I was looking at a couple of the Motos, but I'm leery after my last experience with them, which wasn't the best as far as updates/support. It wasn't bad hardware, either, but Sprint also pulled the plug on WiMax.

    I agree. I had an LG V20,and it was one of my favourite devices. The in-built DAC is still the best in terms of audio quality in any mobile device that I've ever owned.

    It has officially gone. Very sad because there are loads of members on this forum that loved LG and only used their phones. Death of the headphone jack is complete I guess.

    Maybe in the mainstream market but not completely dead. One of the reasons I looked at the Asus ROG line is because they keep it as well. Heck, there were many jokes about the first one having two jacks (the cooler attachment had one in addition to the phone body) when it came out. I just looked at the product page for the ROG 5 phone, and it mentions having the jack, powered by a hi-fi ESS DAC. Not sure if it'll be a quad DAC like with LG, but ESS made the V-series DAC's. Maybe they will take the place of LG if they get that line universally compatible? The market could use a new non-cookie cutter competitor, which use to be LG.

    The ROG phones have always been interesting

    I agree. And their marketing and advertising. They delivered quality products that I think would have sold more units if LG spent more time and money on advertising.

    First LG made some great phones. I switched from the Samsung S4 to the LG G3 and loved itUpgraded to the G4 and had boot loop with 3 of them but when that phone worked it was fantastic. Upgraded to the v20 and free Web OS tv currently using the LG v30 .If I get a good deal could grab a LG Velvet.
    They failed because the carriers in their stores pushes Apple and Samsung .Look at Wal-Mart or Target or Meijer their accessories are for Apple or Samsung including Tablet.
    It is like an effort between Apple and Samsung to force out others.

    Let's all not forget the notoriety that LG had for bootlooping with the G4, G6 and I think even on the G5. I probably would have bought an LG smartphone or two if it wasn't for that whole disaster. Guess they couldn't make those things very durable like the good ol' LG A110 feature phone I had which survived falling off a shelf into a cup full of boiling hot tea many years ago and still works perfectly (aside from a worn button) last time I checked...

    You raise a good point. I had thought that the LG G6 was largely exempt from the bootlooping issue? I know the LG G4 suffered greatly with that.

    Yeah, I agree. When I worked for Verizon wireless, one of my demo phones was an LG android phone. I really did not like it at all. LG tried different things to try to stir up interest and business within their mobile division. Obviously they failed, and furthermore, I never liked their phones. Competition is a wonderful thing, but between one plus, Samsung, and Google pixel for android phones, I think that’s all the competition we need right now. LG didn’t do anything innovative. The phones were very lackluster, and not very keen on useful features... I mean, let’s be honest, between the modular phone design , the volume rocker on the back, and the curved phone model, I saw it coming down the line years ago unfortunately. This will lead LG focus on what they really do well: making great smart TVs, smart devices to put in you home, and other home appliances such as washers, Dryers, and dishwashers.
