This new LG flagship will be priced at $899.99 ( Approx. ₹66,000). If you ask whether to buy this device or not? Our reply will be a big NO. The reason is there are better flagships at this price range and less than that, like Vivo Nex, OnePlus 6, POCO F1 etc with lot of better features. However LG has produced lot of better smartphones years ago, now its grade has gone down slightly. LG could optimize their skin and make it even better. LG never cares about the extras where Samsung scores lot of points in the game. Samsung tries something new in all their devices including their mid-range smartphones like their newly released Samsung Galaxy A7

And also there are lots of new flagships which are about to be released on this month and upcoming days like Google Pixel 3, OnePlus 6T and Razer Phone 2. Let’s see which is gonna capture the market.
