LG tells consumers "There's life beyond the Galaxy"

LG tells consumers "There's life beyond the Galaxy"
It seems so long ago that LG stumbled into the U.S. with its first smartphone, the LG Incite. After years of selling featurephones in the U.S. such as the LG Voyager and the LG Dare, the Incite was not exactly what you would call a polished device. This one made our list of the top 13 worst Windows Mobile devices ever, and if you ever happen to run into our own John V., do not mention this model. It still gives him nightmares.

But LG has matured over the years, and its Android flavored LG G2 was selected as one of the Best Smartphones of 2013. The LG G3 is a strong candidate for the list again this year, as it is the first handset offered in the U.S. to carry a 1440 x 2560 QHD display.

LG's success means that it must go up in the U.S. against Samsung's Android flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S5. To promote its handset, LG put together a 15 second video. The header that LG placed on its YouTube page reads "There's life beyond the Galaxy," while an image of the LG G3 shows the galaxy on its display. No doubt who LG is targeting, is there?

So many amazing things have happened since the Incite touched down at AT&T in November 2008. Still, one thing hasn't changed. Manufacturers remain willing to target their rivals in commercials. Samsung does it to Apple and LG does it to Samsung. And the world continues to spin.


Thanks for the tip!

Lg is not even in the league. The samsung note 3 of last year year is still by miles better than lg g3 , optimus g pro 2. People will debate on this but its a fact Samsung sells.more than the total combined sales all other android device manufacturers. I dont think its because of just marketing as Samsung advts are lame to the core. The only device Samsung screwed up was galaxy s4 exynos variant which was laggy to the core. S5 seems to be bad too but note series has been by far the best device I have come across too.

We can acknowledge that LG is using catchy antics to word it's marketing jargon, but those of us who know should acknowledge them for the facts. High-end, poorly calibrated experience. But it's alright, a competitor a competitor.

Good to see LG stepping up to the marketing plate. They need to go harder though.

Why is every carrier out there always Promoting just samsung not the other phones What if some one want a simple phone like a WP or a iPhone I remember when carriers actually care about the Consumer now it about just selling you the highest phone

Tell me again why I should switch my galaxy note 3 for a LG

if you hate Samsung. That's the #1 reason.

And why should I hate Samsung? Because they are not US company? Or because the apple propaganda want me to?

38. hurrycanger

Posts: 1777; Member since: Dec 01, 2013

No. I said "if". The Note 3 is still one of the best phones out there, and that's probably what he thinks when he asks such question. So, the only reason I think he should switch to an LG is if he hates Samsung. Now, about why you should hate Samsung. I don't really know, cuz I don't hate Samsung. xD

I laugh so hard is that why they are copying Samsung on almost everything

Apple fan aside, Samsung is pretty brutal with that themselves.

The G3 is an amazing phone but the guys at Android Police say the screen and battery life aren't very good compared to other flagships. I trust their in depth reviews.

Battery life suffers compared to other phones. But from personal experience owning the phone the screen is the best I have seen. And the battery lasts me through the day with my Bluetooth Ed headphones connected all day with maybe 2 hours of actual playback. Significantly less leftover compared to there's but still good enough.
