If they could compete they would, I wish they would just come up with a better design

Yeah, agree with your point. iPhone 7 plus is also much bigger for my hands to handle. lol

it is just 148.9 x 71.9 x 7.9 mm while the iphone 7 Plus is 158.2 x 77.9 x 7.3 mm. Practically it's a mid point between iphone 7 and 7 Plus in W and H while being a little thicker. The dimensions are great for almost any user.

"330 mAh battery"  That's way too small.  Current batteries tend to run 1000 mAh or more.  Around 1500 isn't uncommon.  My old iPhone 5 uses a 1450 mAh battery.  For a flagship product like this seems to be, 330 mAh seems awfully low capacity.

From the beginning when big phones were launched, I was never fan of wide phones and the same applies to all my company guys consisting of 15 around. We just love thin and slick phones. We will not like this LG's wide phone at any cost.

They have never been focusing on the design. As they said to their Instagram and facebook followers, they don't want to copy any other brand (like Samsung), but to make their own path through the market.

Third consecutive cycle for LG with an insufficient flagship, that's too much and they clearly need changes.

All they had to do was to wait for the new SoC, add a bit of DRAM and USB 3.1. Or they could have created a new line focused on design. Both product design and marketing failed here and the brand will suffer, impacting the sale of all their phones.

With neither product or brand how do they expect to sell? On design it is not enough as Samsung and others are pushing in the same direction.
