LG plans to sell 35 million smartphones this year, a lot of them with LTE radios

LG makes pretty good phones. They just can't get consumer trust for some reason. And they don't practice a good after-sales support like Sony, HTC and Samsung does.

LG may currently make decent phones (I'll take your word for it), but for a long time, they made absolutely terrible phones. And this isn't restricted to features or specs. LG often made pretty shoddy products to the point where I avoided selling them because like clockwork, they would come back. But of course, I never took my sole experience as a way of judging a company's products. Sure enough other people on other networks had problems with LG devices for a good amount of time.
Still, even without those problems, LG wouldn't have done well. It seemed like each carrier had their favorite company. Sprint had Sanyo. AT&T had Pantech and Samsung. Verizon had LG. But when Verizon picked up Android, it seemed like they kicked LG to the curb. There just hasn't been a resurgence since and I'm not too sure people really wanted to give them another shot.
