One less competitor. One less choice.

Might have to pick one up while I still can. I was thinking of going with them next. Sad news.

Do you trust them to continue to update?

I'm on my 2nd flagship (at the time) LG phone and I'm thinking about grabbing their latest as my current one is around the 2-year mark.

I'm not worried about support or updating at all; I can't think of a time when I needed that from LG versus from my carrier or just general google/android-related stuff.

I like LG because they seem at least far less loaded with bloatware than Samsung and just seem a cleaner GUI than S too.

But in all likelihood I'll be switching to Pixel.

I've been using the LG G series phones for several years buying refurbished models the year after they came out. It's been a good strategy that's worked well for me. I spend on average $200 for a $600-$800 phone that's refurbished and a year or two old. They discontinued the G series a couple of years ago, so I wasn't sure what I was going to do when my current G8 (bought it in July of last year) needed replacement. Now I have no idea at all. I really liked their phones.

Going on 3 years with my V20.

It's the best phone I have owned.

I plan on keeping it for a while. It's got a replaceable battery. It hasn't slowed down at all. No reason to change it.

Interesting to hear.

There's still a good number of players in the market, fortunately.

Security updates for at least another year on the 60. Maybe 2. Not concerned about OS updates.

I got the Pixel 3a back in December 2019 and have been very happy with it. Other smartphones I've had in the past turn to crap within the first year, although I didn't get around to giving LG a chance.

I wonder why they're quitting phones?
