LG doesn't see the Lenovo - Motorola deal as a threat to its smartphone business

0. phoneArena 13 Feb 2014, 22:54 posted on

LG seemingly doesn't care too much about the fuss around Motorola's acquisition, and will continue to concentrate on making competitive smartphones - that's the company's way of fighting rivals...

Someone remind LG they actually don't make profits out of smartphones. LG is too insignificant to make a dent in the smartphone industry.

As a consumer, I don't freakin care. Lol. As long as their phones are good, users would be happy. Yes, LG has been making very good phones recently.
And don't worry too much for LG. That company knows better than you do. :)

If u only care about yourself, then u may find out one day, they dont bring 5.0 version to your G3 due to lack of profit on their mobile division

Hmm... Are you serious? If you care about LG or worry for LG, how will it help the company to push about 5.0 version to the G3? Please explain.
Now here is the thing: If I buy an LG phone, I am already helping LG make profits. ;)

Almost every leading company say that, but look at them now, i don't know the current revenue for their smartphone, but what i know is that they are not even the leading company in this market.

I think the Motonovo mash-up makes them a force to be reckoned with. Motorola is a brand people already know & trust, back that up with some Lenovo muscle and you have a strong competitor. Even Samsung should be threatened IMO.

Exactly and they sure know it. They just don't want to admit it in public. Lenovo make great yet affordable products.

Actually, not anymore they're not. Nokia had the same thing happen to them. Both were very diverse but now the entities that we're discussing, the mobile phone side, is all they do. Moto was bought by Lenovo, Nokia's Lumia handset division was bought by MS. Other entities still exist that they used to be a part of, but the divisions that make handsets are both on their own.

Motorola used to be very diverse, two-way, first responder, networking, set top boxes, etc. As I recall, Nokia did handsets and networking, if there was more please let me know. But the point is, when I started using cell phones, there was pretty much only 2 names, Motorola and Nokia. Motorola was mostly dealing with North America, where Nokia was more global. Motorola did ok, while Nokia for a time ended up being the largest mobile OEM with a globally used OS. If anything, Nokia fell a lot further from their peak than Motorola did.

LG doesn't even have clairvoyance to know that Lenovorola will not be a threat to them.
Just wait and see on what will be totally happen if Lenovorola will be successful or will be unsuccessful.
