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

LG tells consumers
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!

Or down to Samsungs level. Both need to make fun of other competitors to sell their phones.

"Both need to make fun of other competitors to sell their phones." What's wrong with that? Is it hurting your sensitive feelings?

You mean like Apple dissed the Windows computer? And still disses Android at their keynotes. Like Pepsi dissed Coca cola and vice versa. Microsoft disses Apple and Samsung at the same time... They all do it, get over it.

I said phones. As in smart phones. As in LG G3, Z2, iPhone 5s, Note, Lumia, etc. Phones. Also, this is Phone Arena. Thats besides the point. Go back and re read my comment. Samsung does this on a daily basis, because thats all they have for marketing. Any other strategy and their sales in the Galaxy S and Note series would plummet. Take a chill pill. Once in a while its fine. Its business. Every day? Lol.

I'm chill :) Thanks for explaining what smartphones are though ;) And no Samsung doesnt do this on a daily basis, they even have commercials that arent about the competition, shocker hey...

Nope. This is bad marketing. They should have come up with something more clever.! Now samsung can respond with 'beyond galaxy are aliens .. and no .. we do not serve them. The new galaxy s5 is designed for humans! ' See ? Its easy for samsung to pick on lg now.!

How?? With "There's life beyond the Galaxy"???? Well it sounds logical to have life there too, but it's not proven yet. Right?

Watch out for the Decepticons. Good thing though, LG sides with Optimus.

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.

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

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

22. hurrycanger

Posts: 1761; Member since: Dec 01, 2013

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

32. The-Sailor-Man

Posts: 1095; Member since: Mar 25, 2014

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

38. hurrycanger

Posts: 1761; 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
