    Because they couldn't keep up with the competition after those G3s. They suked big time, they were expensive and offered horrible performances compared to comparable specs smartphones from the competition. Aside from the marketing nonsense they were garbage for the cost. Should stick with fridges and washing machines. I personally had a liberating feeling when I finally smashed with a large jammer the immensely frustrating V20 (the one with the stupid additional screen no custom rom could make fully functional... and on its own was useless anyway) that could not be fixed in any way because their piece of crap could not be got our of boot loop no matter what I did... and I am no noob to repair or custom rom loading.
    There is a reason why youtubers didn't cover this garbage more... LG suked because even innovations were dropped rigrht after introducing them so it they don't believe in it why should consumers? Not to mention it's not like they were reliable or set themselves apart... most of the time they tried to use early adopters as their lab rats... but then early adopters are far more forgiving than the general mass market so LG has only itself to blame to have jumped off the cliff caused by their marketing strategies, the direction of their hardware and design departments kept taking with a level of increasing inconsistency and willy-nilliness on both hardware and design and (if I might add by personal experience) their horrendous, non-existent support along for their massively unreliable smartphones. You say we all lose with LG being out of the market... I say good riddance and hopefully their resources will make other products more reliable and able to offer better support than they currently do today.

    as someone that bought LG phones fairly regularly (usually their flagships a couple years after they come out becacuse price drops like mad) its kinda sad to see, but then again, id never get any real productivity out of them till its ablee to be rooted. that software UI is so, ugh. Samsungs One UI is way better, if that says anything.
    Edit: Double tap to wake is the best feature LG has ever came up with and it pisses me off that more companies dont add it.

    oh last note... most all the LG "new" "first" thing is difference of days or same time.
    Not one of the big designs were LG inventions, like quad cpu's.. they came out across all the market the same time. timing was based on marketing for most.
    biggest issue is New is not always best. focus on Biometrics, getting ride of a number of functions to "save/reduce" costs. they assume to much based on nerds that are loudest buy less than 5% of the market. everyone else just had to sucks it up or move on.

    LG blows Samsung & Sony out of the water in every department they have their foot in. They blow Samsung & Sony out of the water when it comes to TVs. LG destroys Samsung in appliances. LG is great at phones, but as you said, everyone just took their ideas, ran with it & didn't give LG the credit they deserved. This is actually a big move for LG. I promise you in 10 years all TVs will most likely be LG, as of right now theyre NanoCells & OLEDs are better in every way then Samsung's QLED or Sonys OLED which LG makes for Sony anyway. LG has the technology of OLED patented. Nobodies making anything OLED without their approval. At least with OLED that is actually worth it and doesn't cost you an arm and leg like Sony. LG has a grip on the tv market, in 10 years nobody will be making calls on TVs without their approval, specially once all TVs become OLED.

    I believe the most important factor for their phones to die, is because their battery life was a joke. I remember the time when my battery died when I was abroad, trying to find a location. It was scary. 2 months after that, I bought a Mi 6, life was a lot better.

    LG Died, noting all their innovations, because their build quality was BAD. They sold phones they knew would brick due to heat and didn't do recalls when they should have.

    As a massive LG fan the fact that LG stopped making new phone sends me. I use the V60 right now it's honestly the best one I have ever had the battery is large the screen is good the refresh rate really doesn't bother me because it saves my battery on a day-to-day basis one thing that I really like about LG is when you compare LG to like Samsung you don't have all the bloatware that Samsung has I think that's one of the huge things that I'm going to miss about algae is it's simply gives you a lot of the same features as like a Samsung or xiaomi without all the bloatware without all of Samsung's ideas like Bigsby and so on being shoved down your throat

    My first LG was the EnV. When Verizon switched to 3G, they told me make the switch to the touch screen phone so I switch to the iPhone & I hated it. The constant updates from Apple & the shit battery life has been a constant problem. Back in 2015 I made the switch from not only a different carrier but phone back to LG. I believe I got the V20 & loved it so much that when I was due for another upgrade I switch to the LG G6. Fantastic phone, great battery life & amazing camera. Then I upgraded again to the latest G8 & this phone has been my constant. It's battery life, software, processing, & especially camera have been awesome. My only complaint was there were never enough company provided cases for it. Same thing for my G6. I was stuck with having to choose a Amazon special but where I & how I keep my phone in my vehicle, it strongly depends on the case not only protecting the camera & the screen but the case cannot be silicone & that is a HUGE majority of the cases out there. So I stuck with the case TMobile suggested which was a smoky rubberized case which has done it's job quite well. I am so bummed about LG giving up on phones & MAYBE they will come back with all the research & design that they have don't in other aspects & blow the competition out of the water & maybe they won't but now I'm stuck chosing their competition, Samsung. And they pop out camera design is a no for me.

    I bought my LGV40 for the price and specs...but fell in love with it because of the audio and solid user experience. Great hardware...fingerprint reader...strong chip and ram. I didn't like it as much as my Samsung software wise, but I came around to it in the same way you love an old pair of shoes that fit just right.
    Now I have to figure out how I'm going to get that audio quality and keep my 512 Gb microsd card. LG was LEGIT...but I have to admit I had to use the phone to really GET them. They were kinda like the upgraded Toyota Camry of smartphones. Not really exciting, but the things it did really well were solid.

    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.

    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)

    LG was no hero, they made gimmick phones, never updated their software, got bloated android software as everyone and they dropped their gimmick phones as soon they next one came.. i got burned by them once, never went back i was surprising checking their media pages and find 'em filled with angry messages cuz they never updated shit or corrected bugs
