LG Wouldn't know a good performing phone if it slapped them in the face. The Nexus 4 is underwhelming to say the least, and everything else they have released on the smartphone front for the last couple years has been disappointing.
If LG wouldn't compromise so much their devices would indeed be much better. The 4x HD isn't a total disappointment. It only has a lousy loudspeaker, lousy camera and they should have tested the camera-software a bit more thoroughly.
LG also ought to learn that dumping phones on the market and leave them to rot afterwards doesn't fare well with consumers!
And a 3rd thing. If LG "releases" another phone perhaps "release" it EVERYWHERE!!! Why brag about your phones when they're nowhere to be found, goddammit! The same goes for Google. Both the Optimus G and Nexus phones are not available in my country so STOP BRAGGING about it!
