  1. I have owned several LG phones, Monitors, TVs and DVD Devices. I purchased the LG G8 Thinq Unlocked and the screen cracked a few weeks after I bought it. I contacted LG and was quoted $250.00 as an estimate to repair the screen. I reached out to Corning the maker of the Gorilla Glass 5 covering the OLED screen and was pointed back to the manufacturer. This as well as the total lack of updates for both my phone and my TV has assured that I will never buy any more of their merchandise. I refuse to spend money supporting a company that does not stand behind their products. I hope this helps someone else make a decision to look elsewhere before losing their money wit as well as the total lack of updates for both my phone and my TV has assured that I will never buy any more of their merchandise.
