LG Reviews, Rumors and Upcoming News

LG Announces Mobile Profit of 1.2 Cents Per Device
By admin on Wednesday July 29, 2015

LG's mobile division is riding a rollercoaster at the moment. The huge success of the G3 flagship last year elevated the company to the upper echelons of the market, but sales of the replacement G4 (a fantastic smartphone regardless) have tempered expectations and LG may lose money this year and not meet sales estimates. That said, the company is still in contention for top five smartphone manufacturers globally and thanks to its screen tech has a cash cow beyond its own hardware.

LG has already said that it will launch a second flagship standard smartphone this year following the launch of the G4.

By Luke Jones on Monday July 20, 2015

Huawei may be making the brand new Nexus flagship that will launch later in the year, but old Nexus manufacturer LG will also be returning to Google's brand.

LG G4 Slumps in South Korea
By Luke Jones on Wednesday July 15, 2015

Here at MobileBurn we think the LG G4 has been given a raw deal and think LG delivered what it was meant to, an improvement on the already fantastic G3. However, in an Android market where smartphone leader Samsung went all out with a seismic shift in its flagship range, consumers are less impressed by merely updating a device, just ask HTC about its One M9. It seems the G4 is lumped into that category and is suffering as a result.

By Luke Jones on Monday July 06, 2015

We have talked about the LG G Pro 3 before, the handset is set to make its debut later in the year as a phablet flagship alternative to the company's G4. It actually seems as if the G Pro 3 (or G4 Pro as some suggest) will eclipse its stable mate with blazing market leading specs. @Leaksfly, a noted tipster from China, has reconfirmed some of the specs for the device and even added some new features.

By Luke Jones on Wednesday July 01, 2015

LG's new G4 flagship is not selling as well as its predecessor, which is a shame as it is one of the best smartphones on the market right now. To try and drum up more interest, the South Korean company is holding a promotion throughout the month of July.

LG Quarterly Estimated Slashed Amid Slow G4 Sales
By Luke Jones on Tuesday June 23, 2015

After an excellent 2014, LG positioned itself as amongst the leading smartphone companies in the world and expected 2015 to follow a similar path. However, with other brands raising their game it seems as though LG's growth will be held back this year, at least that's according to analysts who have lowered expectations.
