Chances are, you own either an iPhone or a Samsung mobile phone as Apple dominates 65% of the mobile phone market and Samsung holds 16%. LG, however which owns 9% has announced it is ditching its smartphone division altogether. Despite LG being Number-3 in North American smartphone sales, they didn’t make any money. The gap between mobile phone market shares is just too large and Samsung and Apple are expected to grab that slice of the market. I recently switched to Apple after having been a loyal Samsung customer all my life. The fact of the matter is, Samsung is great! BUT the market is just so saturated with Apple customers that it makes life easier to just submit to the phrase, "if you can't beat em, join em." Airdrop, texting and read receipts along with emojis are all streamlined between devices. It's nice, I'm not going to lie.
Are we at all surprised LG have admitted defeat?
