Key facts about LG phones
- Unlike some smartphone manufacturers, LG offers both premium and budget-friendly handsets in order to reach a broader audience.
- LG leverages its experience manufacturing LCD and OLED TV panels when designing its smartphone screens, resulting in some of the more impressive displays in the business.
LG makes the task of comparing its phones relatively straightforward by dividing them up based on their price and capabilities. Handsets in the G series such as the LG G7 ThinQ are the flagship models designed to compete with the Apple iPhones and Samsung Galaxy Ss of the mobile world; V series handsets like the LG V30+ are aimed at photography aficionados and pack high-quality cameras; and K series handsets attempt to strike a balance between price and performance that doesn't look or feel cheap.
