10 phones that redefined LG's identity



It’s really amazing what a year can do for some companies. Just look at LG for example, who went from a fall from grace type of situation in 2016, to somehow turning things around for the better by the time 2017 came to a close. Being a seasoned veteran in the mobile space, having accumulated a diversified portfolio of phones, the South Korean company has seen its fair share of ups and downs – but through it all, they've managed to remain relevant, something that can't be said about everyone!

Many will argue that they still fall under the shadow of Samsung, always trying to catch up, yet never able to once really push ahead of its longtime rival. Nevertheless, LG's history in the mobile space is an interesting one, primarily because they really didn't start making considerable headway until roughly 5 years ago. We've seen many companies once regarded as darling gems in the market eventually succumb to pressures, but yet, here's LG kicking along, surviving, and potentially about to unleash something truly epic to keep its momentum going strong.

We've seen many smartphones from LG over the years, but in this particular piece, we're going to go down memory lane and reminisce about the 10 phones that redefined LG's identity. This list will be in chronological order, just to provide you with some insights about their struggles and successes – so without any more wait, let's begin!
