  • Really trying to pay attention to camerawork (and the music choice!) in my more recent videos - what do you think? 🤔 To see my top Tech Fails of the decade: senewss.info/slow/hq-7orWHpKa8gJk/video

    • .

    • Well they gave up😂

    • Let me tell you though, I think it has a lot to do with marketing. Sure, naming is one thing, its kinda wonky. And sure they sometimes try to do some gimmicks to "stand out". But its a lack of marketing in my opinion. On TV, on the internet, I can't tell you how much more over the last few years that I've seen Samsung and Apple phone ads than I've seen LG ads. People just strait up don't know much about LG phones. Me? I LOVE my LG V20. That's right, still rocking the V20, as its one of the last great phones with a removable battery! And I'm sad that nobody makes a good phone now with a battery that's removable, but I digress. LG is a brand I do trust, but I have to admit that I've been shopping around elsewhere for a new phone. It also makes me sad that in the US, we're pretty much dominated by fucking Apple and Samsung, what I would give to have Oppo and Vivo here in this country readily available.

    • I just did a HUGE review of your LG review. You have a keen sense of the cellphone marketplace and how LG could sell their product!! Very informative. I understand that LG is not a sexy brand like Apple or Samsung, but they don't cost $$$$ either. That's part of the LG attraction for me. I've had Apple phones provided by my employer and ungraded (unnecessarily) annually...Always had issues with Apple work phone....that's why I stuck with LG for my personal phone. I only need to make and receive calls and an occasional pic or foray for info on Google so it works for me. All of my LG's have given good service, lasted a long, long time and never had one break if dropped with a ZiZo case. I realize I'm a fossil, but us old folks need simplicity and quality at a reasonable price. Thanks for a great video. BTW, the camera work and music were excellent - you do a great job on the vids.

    • @Barrett DeCutler nice! I agree. What color do you have?

  • Im actually getting pretty sick of my samsung. Aside from a intact screen their s8 was better than my s20

  • 06:00 ayyy german xD Greetings from Germany 🇩🇪

  • Rip, LG.

  • In a nutshell I believe LG failed due to: Flagship Imitation instead of innovation. When you imitate the look of other brands instead of innovating your brand you will always be considered inferior....even if you were the original innovator. LG does not have the brand recognition to beat Apple or the SoC manufacturing skills of Samsung so it should have stuck with what it was good at...product uniqueness. Yes the "G Flex" was ugly and the modular G5 was problematic and the Wing is just plain outrageous, but all those models were unique. To beat a long dead horse the LG V10 was a homerun IMO with features Apple and Samsung had long abandoned or never adopted (i.e. removeable battery, flat screen, front facing speakers) but most importantly, it looked unique with a faux leather back cover, steel body, and the much loved second screen. But by the time the V30 dropped it looked exactly like a Samsung S8. Fans and reviewers alike screamed at LG to stop making Samsung clones and go back to making different looking phones. LG ignored us loyal fans and spit out Samsung clone after clone after clone and so us fans answered with our wallets and went elsewhere. LG phones were soon relegated to the discount section at stores where it had to compete with other clone phones half the price. To LG I say this: Thank you for the past innovations but if we wanted a Samsung phone we would buy one from Samsung. When it comes to tech products innovation should be priority #1 and imitation is a big red flag to consumers that you have lost your way.

  • RIP LG. WE WILL NEVER FORGET YOU.

  • My 1st two smartphones were LG, back in 2012 (forgot the model) and 2015(LG Leon). But in 2018, I switch to Xiaomi, the Pocophone F1. But I did notice the decline of LG's phone.

  • The reson that LG changes and adds a new feature for every new generation is probably because they don't want to make a successotr to a smartphone every year but instead they want to make a smartphone with a brand new concept every year so you can buy any smartpohne of theirs based on witch concept you like the most and also keep makin them better in other aspect tht don' t have to do with their concepts to make them evolve and not keep old. The only problem with that though is that it makes an illusion that smartphones from other companies are evolving and getting better each year and that LG phones are just a mixture of unsure experiments even though it is not true while making the costumer think that an iPhone is better just because it seem so because every year it gets something new and a little thing better so they would probably vhose the iPhone cuz every time they launch a sucessor it seems like a good change. That is probably why their naming scheme is so random.

  • Let''s hope that at least sony tries to fix their mistakes.

  • Maybe LG is not sure what type of phones they exactly want to make because they use do make hardware for android nexus phones and even a little bit after they they were one of the best smartphone companies surely passing apple in my opinion but they began to fall down when smartphones beggan to evolve and they had to change and eve though they did change and did improve features they dod not find how to make a good impression and a view for their company. I feel sad for their giving up on smartphones tho. Also a very good video.ff

  • I like your content because you only do it because you want us knowledgbel

  • I have an LG V30 ThinQ, and it's still going strong. But the later models were of much lower quality.

  • That german attempt werent bad :)

  • Commenting from the LG G8X ThinkQ

  • Good bye LG💔

  • Because the camera and sound also the graphics display is not high quality.it is low gb ram and gb rom of phone.the battery is very fast to drain at 6hours only

  • Arun prediction was right

  • People stopped buying SONY smart phone cause of issues with software and slowing down fast.right now i cant find anyone selling LG phones where i am.

  • samsung and apple is why lg phones dont sell. people insta buy any apple phone that comes out and anti apple people buy samsung phones lg mad some good phones but the samsung and apple cult is just too strong.

  • I bought an log phone and I love that phone it’s super good I got the k51

  • this guy can see the future

  • Brilliant man 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟

  • I'll keep watching on my LG Phone!

  • RIP LG. I will wait for your return.

  • All I can say is that years ago I had a top of the line LG G3 and it died one month after the one year guarantee was up and the company is not big on upgrading the software...I was furious !!! ...so I have never returned to LG phones!

  • >Be me > Watch from LG phone

  • Well said....well.put

  • The stylo phones is the only name that was consistent.

  • People not recognise good products

  • LG is merger of two companies, Lone Star and Gold Star.

  • Were satisfied with v10 and v20. I dont think I would buy any LG's handset lineup in this current smartphone competition but I do hope they come up with something. Like some that Aaron mentions perhaps

  • I got my LG stylo 6 and not disappointed at all

  • I love lg

  • Funny enough I came to youtube to look up reviews on recent LG phones, just to find out they are now dipping out of the business lol. I have had the LG V10 for the last 5 years and love it, however, like all phones, it is slowly going out so I am looking for an upgrade. This video perfectly points out why I never hear anything about LG phones. Even though I have been using LG phones since about 2012, it always feels like I forget they are still making new ones. All I ever hear about is Samsung and Apple.

  • I used to have an LG K5 and I was somewhat horibble

  • The average phone buyer does not care about what you are talking about. If you reviewers reviewed more LG phones then it would have been different. They hopped because they were trying to see what would sell.

  • Because reviewers only review Samsung and Apple. So consumers only think apple and Samsung phones exist

  • The problem is internal, performace, my a30s from samsung is almost better than all the lg new phones

  • Hi. I was a major LG user but now that im switching brands id like to buy a Sony Xperia 1 ii but in the international version. Is having the international version in the US a bad decision?

  • I'm on LG right now 😅

  • I've been running LG phones for 5 years. G5, G6, G7, G7 One and the G8. Although what was said is correct, my biggest issue with LG was the updates. They have gotten a little better, but they are slow pushing out updates. I'm still diehard LG, they are the best value. I switched from Apple to LG and would never look back

  • LG♥️♥️

  • LG never giver come back with double strong v r waiting ♥️

  • Hi my name is Nobody and I purchase LG smart phones. They are a great phone for the buck so I purchase two. That way I have a spare battery and phone. Love-in-it. So no need to even watch this video that seems like it is going to be misleading.

  • LG will no longer make Smartphones so that is a good reason why. I used to really like LG Smartphones until the LG G4 and the getting mega hot problem and it fried itself and I got no support from LG at all and many other people had the same problem thus a better reason why.

  • Good video. Hey “ Lg “ You NEED to Watch this video & Have this guy Run Your Company Because everything he says here is true ! At the Very Least Get in touch with him & pay him to Consult with you & You NEED to Get a Proper Business Plan in order if u want to survive.

  • Das ist nicht gut.

  • My first smart phone was LG G3 😭 It feels bad that they quit the production all the way.

  • why didmt you record tyhe whole video in aasmr

  • Wait wtf LG Took This Video Personally 😔

  • I buy them because they are great . . .

  • So what I'll use LG other products I got LG LG UN80 86 inch 4K Smart UHD TV Life's so Go_Od with LG 🙂

  • Because They are poorly made. That's why they cost less 3 Lg phones DIED on me.(2) LG g5 phones, & 3rd (I forgot which model) & two LG g5 camera battery grips all died on me. One display went bad the other the sound went dead. Poor signal reception, constant memory issues, Tons of problems with finding quality replacement batteries also. Plenty batteries available on Ebay but often worse than the lg phones.

  • 4:25 yep I see Laser AF

  • Had an S10+... dumped it for the V60 and after a year I broke the screen... got a S20+ as a loaner while it was being repaired. Couldn't wait for my V60 to be fixed. Love it. Oh well.

  • LG has burned me a lot with the poor quality of the G3 and G5. Never again. My G3 had body cracking issues, even the replacement cracked. The G5 ran insanely hot, like burning my hand lot. Both phones had poor battery life too. After all these years, I finally associated ThinQ with ‘think’ instead of ‘thin-q’

  • Agree with everything said. here. and apparently LG did too. shame too LG made some of the best portable music devices around... I mean smartphones.

  • Rest in Peace, LG's smartphone market.

  • Their deal? Quad Dac, Manual photo, Video options. Awesome screens. What else does one need?

  • I always love LG my favorite phone is the G2 I hate Samsung every phone of theirs I have owned have had issues. Only other maker I love besides LG is Sony but both are out of smartphones.

  • And because nobody buys LG phones is why they are leaving the mobile phone market. They have given up. Which is a shame because my last phone I have right now of 2.5 years is the L G G7 and I love it.

  • lol the add was so long i kept skipping 5secs until i heard u say ur name and i was like omfg i thought there'd be a closing note or whatever after the add xD

  • Better a LG then iphone

  • i like LG

  • I agree. I love my lg phones. They always last 4 plus years. Plenty good specs and features, and big screens.... without having to pay 1500 plus. Gonna miss em.

  • I absolutely love LG phones they're my favorite brand, it kinda sucks :(

  • You forgot one very important thing. Which is what made me and other people that I know that used LG's to turn there back on them. The boot loop that made every LG phone useless. LG refused to stand by their customers and give them a replacement, they were sued and lots of customers lost faith in them. The boot loop continued on from G4, G5, and some G6.

  • Why does nobody buying LG Phones 😂😂😂 It's obviously wrong! It should b why most ppl don't buy LG Phones! Get it right

  • I love LG and Motorola I had the LG stylo 6 but now have the Moto G power

  • i agree my lg v40 thin Q"s screen is broken and no one can repair it as parts are too hard to get and its expensive

  • I was planning on getting either a LG or Sony for my next smartphone. I have a Galaxy S9plus right now- but it's 3 years old now and the new Samsungs just dont cut it.

  • I actually was looking forward to LG rollable phone it's a shame that LG's went out of business I hate that they had greatest potential very great potential so great that they surpassed even Microsoft and great potential and Sony

  • LG ❤️ every since I tried it that’s my android go to phone.

  • Also man konnte verstehen, was er sagen wollte 😂

  • WHAT A PROUD MOMENT FOR LG, www.whathifi.com/news/samsung-ordering-millions-of-oled-panels-from-lg-report-claims Samsung the ace rival of LG criticised LG and buying from LG too...If only the end users knew what's happening in the backend that iPhone is using samsung's display and Samsung is using LG's Display... LG still a market leader in terms of Technology.

    • The same thing applies for sony. They are the world's best producer of camera sensor

  • RIP

  • Before I got my Costco deal Note 10+, I adored my G3 I owned for over 5 years. The QuickCircle case for it was a unique and pioneering move, and I'm adamant that it was the most useful interfacing case ever on a smartphone.

  • Have the Velvet 5G by LG, wonderful phone.

  • The hapless bait usually scare because sail naturally exist below a literate dream. scattered, dependent hot

  • Lgs are poppin in Mexico

  • Mrwhosetheboss:"Apple makes you feel something". Me, who never buys an apple's device or Iphones and only judges/critics harshly my own budget phones I ever have, be like.........................😕

  • Just got a V60 unlocked for $249👍I'm loving it.

  • When I first bought my first 2 smartphones I bought LG's. After that I have been buying Samsung and have been very happy. I couldn't hear a caller on my Lg phones unless I had them on speaker. I have never had this problem with Samsung phones. Bye Lg phones I won't miss you!!

  • Yeah, now. When all of it is over.

  • Hahahaha das ist nicht gut hahaha not bad

  • 0:47 correction, have shut down their mobile efforts

  • They need a decent marketing!

  • They should focus to make LG V series as a business phone head to head to Samsung Note & iPhone X series. Then LG G series suppose to be focus head to head to Samsung S series, iPhone XR series. And dont forget focus on the software support... like mine LG V20 been 5 years since early time I bought it still on the Android 8 till the last update, why not like Samsung supported till 2 times OS upgrade, and iPhone we can get so many times upgrade. For business user we surely needs more internal storage capacity, dual sim (best for traveller), reliable camera

  • My first ever smartphone was an LG K7 and I actually really liked it.

  • I remember *double click* to turn the screen on.

  • LG watches this video and becomes the biggest smartphone brand of 2021

  • 3:31 nice catch

  • Everything is good in LG V series except the market value.. Yaa.. U r daam Correct, they have to stick with medium pricing.

  • This video didn't age well.

  • c est dommage que lg met fin velvet .wing .v60 magnifique si seulement un repreneur achetait lg et vend les smartphone made in lg pas cher je pense que un repreneur achetera et continura a produir les smartphones lg en modifiant les defaults bootloup battrie et prix et un autre nom ❤

  • And now LG are going to shut down it's mobile phone manufacturing.

  • I don't know if Mrwhosetheboss sees comments from older videos. I just wanted to say you become my #1 favorite tech reviewer because of videos like this. Seeing the internet explode with every tech reviewer now taking about LG I could not help but feel like everyone else was late to the party. Thinking Mrwhosetheboss was saying what you are saying before it was "cool" and trending. I get that everyone is talking about LG because of their big announcement. But still... A big thanks to Mrwhosetheboss from across the pond. I appreciate what you do. Keep up the great work 👍

  • Why? So many people had LG phones with faulty soldered CPU, the phone enters boot-loop shortly after warranty expired in 1 year, and LG never compensate us. They DESERVED IT.

  • You didn't touch on the G4 fiasco where they literally stole people's money. I had 2 G4s that bootlooped and the #LG customer service literally told me to go fcuck my mother. After that i 1 starred them everywhere on google maps, and i`m celebrating the day LG is no more!

  • When people ask me what brand my phone is I'll say "LG." obviously nobody knew what it was but to me it isn't trying to grab the kids that want to flew it. Its trying to grab the people that don't care. Now I don't want them to do that but they should. I know LG is shutting down. I personally think they are the best brand of phones. Of course you can disagree but be honest did you use LG EVER just the phone not the Tv's. LG is a very nice brand and seeing it just flat out quit is just heartbreaking. Im not sure if they are making TVs still but if someone can tell me that would be great.
