Sad to see them leaving the smartphone market. LG holds a special place in my memory as my first Android phone was an LG Optimus. Don't remember the model number but it was white. Probably Optimus L9 P760 or L9 II.
Simply coz you ll get flagship features with a quirky design of double screen in a very very nice price.Yeah, it's quite surprising that in spite of being so good in the smartphone market, LG is looking to wrap up its smartphone business. Bad news for those who have already brought LG smartphones because LG might be cutting down the number of service centers as well. So while you can get LG smartphone at a pretty good price now, you need to remember that in case of any issues in warranty period, you may need to travel some distance to get services. Also, after the warranty is over, you would have to rely on local shops for the repair and I don't think locals are still acquainted with the concept of duals-screen LG smartphones or LG Wing smartphone.
So while LG is wrapping up, why buy LG smartphones? You can go for other good brands out there in the market. With LG not being in competition, I think it would offer a fair bit of advantage to the Chinese brands. Realme has recently launched mediatek-powered Realme 8 series and Xiaomi is also launching some good smartphones. If you do not like Chinese devices, you can always go for ones like Samsung and Motorola etc. However, going for LG even after it is looking to wrap things up does not sound too reasonable.
wow thats crazy pricing and wing seems so much fun. I might go for it as I do need a phone but I am not sure how durable it would be with falls etc.So it starts. May be worth it if you think it will last. I am assuming the 5-year service is a FK thing, so probably you won't get any benefit out of it. Also I suppose custom ROMs would have a tough time working with that interface, so would be totally dependent on LG to provide some kind of software support. They said they would support it for 3 years but they also made promises about regular updates in the past without fulfilling them.
LG Wing Gets Massive Price Cut, Up for Grabs at Rs. 29,999 | Technology News (ndtv.com)
Me too.I think the G8x is a better phone and a better value than the Wing.
My mother uses both screens and she needs to recharge it by noon, obviously. She is not giving up the second screen anytime soon though I have asked her few times already.This is for single screen use. Over time, almost everyone ends up using the second screen less and less. I haven't used mine for more than 2 months now.
I am sure she is loving the experience, what matters here would be how much screen on time the phone is giving... As long as it's decent, one can't complain.My mother uses both screens and she needs to recharge it by noon, obviously.

How does that work? I am not able to play 2 videos simultaneously , even on different apps. Whenever I have tried, one out of the two videos pauses on it's own. How does the audio work for that instance?Some times she watches two videos at same time - one on youtube and other on vanced.
Well, I think she watched a video on one screen and scrolled on the 2nd and then played the video on 2nd while scrolling on the 1st.How does that work?

Ek sawaal, Kya bachpan mein dono haathon se pele jaate thhe?Well, I think she watched a video on one screen and scrolled on the 2nd and then played the video on 2nd while scrolling on the 1st.
Also, this was only once or twice I saw her doing. Mostly she plays video on one and job stuff/whatsapp/facebook on the second.
ek hath me belan aur doosre hath me jhadu se ...Ek sawaal, Kya bachpan mein dono haathon se pele jaate thhe?
On another note, seems flipkart is in no hurry to dispose the 8x stock as there has been no reduction in the listed price.
Keeping my fingers crossed...
