A smartphone might be a winner in the hearts of the reviewers and experts, but at the end of the day, all that matters is how well it sells in the market. It seems like LG’s latest G4 flagship hasn’t received much love from the customers as a new report is indicating how the manufacturer might have only sold 240,000 units of the smartphone since it was first released in South Korea on the 29th of April.
It must be noted however that the device wasn’t available in global markets until June, so a majority of the sales by then had to come from LG’s home region. It will be interesting to see how the company’s sales figures hold up in a couple of months from now when the device will be well established on the retail shelves.
LG has been running a couple of decent promotions, where additional battery and back panels are being offered for free to lure prospective buyers. The device shows a lot of promise on paper, but that won’t account for anything if the sales figures don’t reflect it. LG hasn’t officially commented on the aforementioned figures yet.
