lolno. This has snapdragon 855, 6gb of ram, and 128gb of storage. It's not even close.

I just can't buy LG phones anymore until they make some serious changes. I bought a G7 for Google Fi in December. It's been 1 year since Pie was released and there's no update in sight. I'm still on the 8.0 (not even 8.1) February security patch. I had 9.0 on my Moto X4 by the time my LG arrived.

I was stoked about the the supposed audio benefits, but I have had several issues including one that lasted 3 or 4 months (now fixed), where sound wouldn't work after a headset (read: any headphones with a mic) was plugged in. I had restart my phone several times a week.

The screen is good, and when it works the sound improvements are nice, but it's not that snappy for the hardware, the camera is so-so at best, and if I have to wait a year for Android updates then I'm not interested.

Not a bad price for this phone at all. Has impressive hardware at this price point. Could see it come down to around $399 in the next few months though. LG struggles big time with trying to re-gain is fan base after many years of total crap phones but so far the g6 g7 and g8 have been pretty good.

Almost thought this is a 68" LG TV for $499!
This would make a decent 6.1" OLED TV

I had a G4, V30 and now a G7. Not one phone is reliable. I LOVED my G4 before it and the replacement phone bootlooped. If I wasn't so cheap, I would move on from LG. I can't stand curved glass and Samsung only uses it. My G7 doesn't although the V30 did.

True, however it needs that extra horsepower to push through LGs uninspired software. I had a G6 and wanted to like that phone, but between its bad skin, sorry battery life, and severe lack of updates, I ditched it so fast when the Essential Phone firesale came about. Now using a OnePlus 6t, and I'm convinced if it had a midrange snapdragon soc, it'd still be better than whatever is on an LG phone.

This is a bit tempting. I hear LG is, at minimum, easier to root than my previous phones so you could get amazon's cruft off of it.

Also, none of the pixels meet my needs. Not enough storage space.

I too hate the curved glass, and don't get me started on the glass backs Ermm. Samsung has the 'budget minded' S10e with a flat glass screen as an option FYI.

Many pp who owned many LG flagships in the past wouldn't buy another LG phone even at discounted price. The only way for them to get some users back is giving 18-24 months warranty or even life-time warranty if the phone has bootloop issue.
