LG expects to sell 10 million units of the LG G2

Thursday morning, a published report came out indicating that the Korean manufacturer has a sales target of 10 million units for the phone. To put that in perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S4 sold that many units in its first month. Don't get us wrong here. We're not saying that Samsung's flagship model should be outselling the LG G2 by a huge number. No, we're saying that perhaps it will turn out that LG underestimated demand for the LG G2.
Still, LG does need to tread softly considering that its previous top-selling models were the low-priced L Series that altogether sold 10 million phones globally. But the LG G2 does have what it takes to really ring the cash register. It's not going to be easy and there is a ton of competition. Consider that the Sony Xperia Z now is carrier branded in the states and the Samsung Galaxy Note 3 could be just 6-7 weeks away. The third and fourth quarters of this year are going to be very interesting in the world of Android.

WOW, looks like a Samsung "Galaxy LG", in my humble opinion... Too bad it doesn't have the S4 features, or receive the timely updates that Samsung devices are known for... :/ Also with a low 10 million sales target, maybe the speculators and analysts will not downgrade the company, hopefully they will reach their target.

"LG underestimated demand for the LG G2" If anything I think it's overestimating. They had to drop the Optimus name just because customers identified it with cheaper phones. (however the G2 name is already taken with android, so that really didn't solve the problem) They also have very little advertising which has proved to hurt HTC even though they had a great phone. Tech companies need to understand money goes into two places, R&D and marketing to be successful.
