ThinQ was the stupidest name I ever heard. It sounds and reads like something consumer-repellant. But thanks for the ultra-wide camera, LG.

I've been a fan since I got a V10 during the summer of 2017 after my google nexus 6 was stolen when I was in Europe (also a great phone). I've used a V10, a V20 and V40 and they were wonderful phones. This may have been a bad idea considering they're closing down their mobile department, but I bought a V60 for the seemingly amazing battery life, the screen and the headphone jack. Honestly the ONLY thing that kept me away after awhile was the storage. I know there's expandable storage and that's great for people who can/want to use it, but I'm not that person. 64 gigs just became to limiting as time went on. If they had larger storage options I would have never switched, but 128gb in the V60 is a comfortable amount and I'm excited to be able to use this phone for hopefully the next couple of year. You'll be missed LG. Thank you for giving me a wonderful experience after getting a phone stolen in foreign country. It's silly but I became really attached to that V10.

LG's mobile outfit dedicated their entire line of flagships to high levels innovation. This is great for many many people bar a few. Namely, it's great for competitor brands that want to observe what features stick (so they can refine and implement at a lower risk); but not so great for LG themselves who are focusing time, energy and resources into features we don't really want yet (at a higher risk). Ultimately, I respect the plucky innovators. And wish their designers and engineers a long and fruitful career.

I am a pretty big LG Stylo fan. I started with the Stylo 3 and I currently own the Stylo 6. I don't need the premium features of the Samsungs and iphones. I just needed a phone that had a large screen, take decent pictures, and multitask. The stylus was a unique plus. Sad to see this company leave the phone game.

I do agree with the people who said it was do to youtubers. I remember youtubers including yourself would review LG and either downplay it or say there's better alternatives like samsung or it's not better than samsung which even if it was even that's a win. It was also do to LG trying to please iphone/samsung fans while disregarding their own fan base

I agreed with u dude, LG made a lots of bad decisions (like Sega) one of the was marketing other was quality, I used to be a huge fan of LG mobile phones since 2007 they produce great phone shine, Prada (the first attempt to make a real iPhone before Apple) even after that the produce great titles LG G2 LGG3 However after that they had a main problem Quality their phone starts to stop working after only one year (and that happened to me not just in one phone many many times) I don't know if that intentional to make the customer buy another one quickly but if that was the case that would probably be the dumbest decision they ever made!!! because they make the customer turning their backs to them a go to other companies (including me)

I bought an LG a few years ago and it was the model with a manufacturing flaw that caused it to basically continuously reboot. I can't imagine how many people like me got screwed over like that and it can be hard to get people to trust them again. I wouldn't have bought another one.

It's my last week with my LG G6 before im buying myself a new galaxy phone. All of my smartphones were LG and i always felt a little fan of them, having refused to buy better performing android phones like galaxy or oneplus, because i loved the design and all the cool creative features of LG and i was proud buying innovative phones like the modular G5 (started with the great G3). Actually i used to watch Marques videos 5 6 years ago when i was more interested in the tech world, and today i came by to see galaxy reviews. Anyway, it's nice to see your vids again (gave me nostalgia), and that video was very fitting before i say goodbye for good for such a brave revolutionary and special company like LG and their phones that supported me for 7 years or so :)

I had an LG G2 years ago. It was my first smartphone. Software skin was really ugly....but it was also incredibly difficult to mod. Back in the days of CyanogenMod I was able to get it installed. But it wasn't easy to root. Or Flash roms because it turned out if you did take one of their rare updates, it breaks flashing as it only worked with specific radios. So you'd have to flash a new (old) radio and then flash the custom rom. By the end I wanted to throw it off a roof. And honestly left a really bad taste in my mouth with LG. Its a shame but I can't say I'm surprised.

LG Stylo 4, LG V30, LG V40thinq, LG G8thinq, LG Wing 5G... If they came out with another phone and stayed in the phone industry, I'd still buy it. I have had fun with literally every LG phone I've owned. It fit just the right spot for someone who always wanted to find new and exciting features in their phone, for those who want to look at a phone and think, "what else can this piece of hardware in my hand do." I feel bad that LG has taken their leave from the Phone market, but at least they can just continue dominating others, considering how well they do with their OLED technology. LG, you will be missed... Woulda loved to try out your future LG T-800thinq, that probably woulda had a fucking laser, microwave and maybe even tried to take over the world, but oh well! I'll just stick to the Wing. p.s. - to clarify, I mostly mean I'll miss the phones, LG as a company is well known for having horrible customer support... they just honestly couldn't give a shit considering the Wing is still on Android 10 since release with no date on when A 11 will release, so their promise to continue 3 years of support is kinda bs. They honestly kinda dug their own grave in the phone market if anyone should be blamed. Innovators? yeah... Good Guy LG, not a chance? Just another soulless company, like the rest, just trynna make a buck too many.

LG is an absolutely racist company. I discovered this when I was looking through the help section forum of my LG G7 ThinQ and wanted to like a post by someone. LG would not allow this. Why?

As someone who has sold phones for almost 10 years now, rip but you will not be missed. LG was the vast minority in what Android stuff we did sell, and easily the most problematic when it came to defects later down the line. I had a G3 I personally owned that got stuck in a bootloop just after a year, the G4 was a nightmare for us due to more bootloops and general issues, and I had a G6 that I won that pretty much died after 8 months. When they make up about 5% of what the store sells, but are pretty much 80% of the repairs sent out, it doesn't look good lol

I'm still using the G4. I love it, still works great, feels fantastic to hold, looks beautiful with it bordeaux red lether back and makes pictures that are beter looking than a lot of lower tier smartphones releasing now. Sadly, I'm looking for a new phone as I'm afraid of security risks due to its old android version and pretty terrible battery life (although a powerbank easily fixes that) Probably going for the velvet, want to stick to LG since I love them, but with this news it will sadly likely be my last LG phone :(

Stability, reliability, and consistency, as much as I would like to find that in any android smartphone, none has been better than Apple with their phones working for a very long time. Samsung is declining on reliability too and might go down soon. One plus becoming flagship but also creeping up on pricing too so what’s next, phones from China 😅

Think that g6 was so god, but why they made so weird phones. Only think that they should do- made stable OS and hear what customer want- ALL. RIP

The phones died because LG screwed up with the G series. With G4 and G5 they tried pointless, dumb gimmicks that made the phones UNPRACTICAL. After that they started skimping on the hardware, shipping both old chips and outdated displays. Meanwhile the V series got really good but maybe they were both too big and expensive for most people. They also didn't really have anything to make them stand out next to a Samsung or Apple.

The turning point was with the G5. I witnessed almost every youtube reviewer negatively presenting this phone with intangibles and false information normally focused on such things as "not premium" which for the LG was always questioning if the phone was metal, and metal was "premium" that year, and suggesting it was really "plastic" only "painted" to look like a metal phone. That was hammered by most reviewers and was completely false. The other nail in the LG G5 was "fit and finish" which ignored the fact that a two piece body metal body that allows one to replace their battery themselves simply and cheaply was not worth the perceived fitment issue and that ability to replace your battery at will without taking it into some shop was gold, but ignored I believe on purpose. So the false information and purposely ignoring the G5's ability to have you replace your own battery while also giving you a premium metal body and amazing screen resolution for the time killed LG at that point and nothing they could do from that point on was ignored, the reviewers simply presented the LG G5 with false information and did it without any correction and did it seemingly following each other's lead without any real effort to substantiate their negative claims, not all, but most presented false narratives about LG's flagship that year. It was a key turning point so after witnessing it that year I am convinced reviewers did kill LG.
