    Unfortunately a lot of brands from China that are copying phones made by Sony, Samsung and LG are getting much more credit than Sony and LG, but cannot say the same about Samsung, which is very interesting to know how come Samsung is the only major one that doesn't lose the market and is still the number one in the market? It is interesting to know what can LG and Sony learn from Samsung on how to survive and even win Chinese brands and even win over Apple per sales of smartphones?

    I was working for LG a decade ago. Horrible experience from co-workers, precisely, my lazy ass mother fucking senior workers and so-called "Executives" who are so corrupt and typical traditional old-style loser minders. Most idea banks are working hard and so competitive against Samsung or Apple. However, eventually, all you are getting is too much disappointing feeling with unfair rewards.

    I have a "LG optimus 3D" and I miss its 3D system, sadly today wen searching same 3D on phones, the seller never understand what I mean and shows me some good camera or good screen phone presenting it as a 3D phone, but that is NOT the 3D I am searching for as NONE of them are like the old "LG optimus 3D" phone. So I was forced to settle with a Motorola Z2, just cause I love the modular idea it has and much more produced then the modular LG phone too.

    MKBHD, so nonchalantly says it's too bad that we're losing LG. The other phone makers DO NOT have anything substantially innovative. Foldable screen phone from Samsung? What the heck does it do for me except turn into a mini tablet and become unwieldy. Wrap around display from that Chinese maker? That is even more useless to me. The LG wing was definitely quite useful and LG should have been given proper promotion. MKBHD, you always complain about smartphones having lack of innovation. Now let me see which smartphone will bring you any real innovation any more. Most of them are derivative or just Apple sheep. This is just plainly sad and a huge blow to the industry.

    My father is working for LG so I grew up using all the LG phones. Frankly, LG acknowledge all the points made out by Marques, ofc. It's just the company culture is highly inefficient and decisions were made by stubborn, old fashioned leaders. After the success of G3, they had the chance to compete against Samsung, but somehow they made the worst mistake twice; retro themed with leather built in case G4 and the one-timer module phone G5 as Marques mentioned. G6 was a fairly moderate attempt to seek for a redemption and V30 was personally, "okay" but after that... LG went down the slope.

    MB, you are a big reason for LG"s failure. YT channels trashed LG for years (even their good phones) because it was more profitable to do so on their channels. You can't deny this fact. Yeah allot of it was warranted. But in the case of the V60 I feel the big channels should have pushed for it more. Refresh rates are good. But the V60 still trashes the S21 in many ways. Superior microphones, Dacs, better battery life, SD storage, and the camera's are so good that its pretty hard to call a winner. Now that the big channels have been spanking LG for YEARS we are left with two companies that are much alike. Giving us gimmicks and taking out big features right and left. Apple with a Locked OS and Samsung with their heavily skinned Android to try to lock in their users as well. And both creating gimmicks like 120 refresh rates to keep price points over 1000 dollars and putting in shitty mics and charging more for storage. MB you have no idea how bad this is for the consumer. YT had a big part in the destruction of LG mobile. The V60 is an amazing device. Any company that innovates like that should be a player full stop. But you and other big channels didn't recommend it. And now the S21 suddenly is stripped of major components/features to pad their margins. See how that works? Yeah it's called an oligopoly.

    I agree entirely that with LG being gone, innovation won't be as risky. Because the big 2, Samsung and Apple, just basically copy each other here and there. While still playing "the hits". I never owned an LG phone. But it wasn't because I thought bad of the phones. I just wouldn't see much on them. They would be quick glances. While every other manufacturer is constantly pushing their products. Having huge intro shows and the like. LG reminds me of Sony Ericsson phones from the 90's. Incredible design yet never truly marketed. Anyhoo, best to go out a hero than a villian any day!

    I had an LG G4... I had a Nexus 4, Nexus 5, Nexus 5x....and finally an LG G7 ThinQ..... The biggest issues I've had with LG phones have been product support. Or lack of.... My Samsung Galaxy S20 has received more updates in the 4 months I've had it, than my LG G7 has in the 2 years I've owned it. That's not a good record for LG, especially when most of those updates are Android security updates.... LG needed to focus on releasing 1 solid, stable product with great support...... Instead, they kept adding gimmicks that barely worked, if at all and forgot about supporting the products they had already released. As for reviews.....you can either be honest, or a corporate shill.... Honest reviews help people but have the potential to hurt companies. Corporate Shills help companies in exchange for intentionally harming people....

    10:25 Apple doesn't have a problem with that... People actually defend apple and try to claim that the difference between 60hz and 120hz+ is hardly noticeable. Which they obviously had NO CLUE considering they only had a 60hz iPhone and didn't have a 120hz phone to compare it too. There is a huge difference in responsiveness when you go up to 120/144hz displays. Scrolling through the comments in youtube or scrolling down pages of text is so much better now because its not as jerky when you scroll down and the text isn't as blurry and unreadable as you scroll down.
