    Goodbye. Thanks For The Memories LG.

    Sad day today as LG announced it is leaving the mobile phone business to focus on other things. They haven't made a profit in years and feel that it is in their best interest to focus on other things. They will keep offering support for a while, but the phone division will officially shut down on 7/31. I always loved the quality of the LG phones that I had, and felt that they could have stayed around longer had they taken on people like OnePlus in the budget and midrange price categories instead of trying to compete with Apple and Samsung in the flagship categories. I can't speak for everyone, but I will truly miss having LG in the smartphone game.

    So sad.... I had several of their phones and it was of a good quality. I even saw their new LG Wing phone which looks fantastic. A bit expensive in my opinion but maybe I will buy it at the end. I just need to sort some issues in my property in Rome and after I will see if I have extra money left so I can buy it.

    Wrong forum. Should be under Android. Mods, please move the thread.

    Since this thread is specifically about LG, seems a good place for it.
    Just another day in paradise.....

    But this is a subforum for Feature/dumb phones. What is then the purpose of the LG subforum under Android / Hardware?

    A while ago frail mentioned that there will be a redesign of the forums, specifically because people keep posting about smartphones in the wrong subforum.

    I jumped on Google's offer to trade-in my Nexus 5X. Glad I got rid of that turd before it suffered the inevitable bootloop of death. My Nexus 5 was a much better phone overall.

    Goodbye. Thanks For The Memories LG.

    LG made great phones. They were usually well built etc...
    It seemed like they had their share of issues though with the OS, cameras and batteries.

    I used to say if you buy an LG there will be probably one thing they forgot and left out, like the camera or battery. But this was kind of normal for Android back in the day, until Samsung upped its game to compete directly with Apple.

    One exception to all this was the T-Mobile G2X and the G4. Those were solid phones.

    My mother last phone before she got an IPhone 7 was a Lg expression plus. It was the last phone that I unlocked directly from Att. She was using it on Family Mobile. She ended up getting a text or a letter saying the expression would not work at the beginning of the year. At Christmas my father got her the IPhone. She hates it. I wanted to get her a LG journey for mother's day or her birthday. Since LG is out of the phone game it looks like a bad Idea.

    Yes, we've considered merging the phone forums into a single section. It's been a long time coming and I'll revisit the discussion with the other admins to see if we can't get it done soon.

    For now, I think this thread is okay here, since they'll likely be merged in the near future.
