Why Did LG Eventually Say ‘Goodbye’ to the Smartphone Market?
Posted On April 9, 2021
LG announced its exit from the smartphone market earlier this week. It wasn’t a sudden move as the mobile division of the South Korean company had been making losses for some time. The departure of LG from the smartphone market was a sad moment for at least some loyal customers. On this week’s episode of Orbital, the Gadgets 360 podcast, the discussion revolves around the exit of LG from the smartphone market. Counterpoint associate director Tarun Pathak joins host Akhil Arora and Gadgets 360 reviews editor Jamshed Avari to talk about what made LG exit the market and why we saw it coming.
Gadgets 360 chief sub-editor and gaming enthusiast Shayak Majumder joins host Akhil to talk about the goods and the bads of Outriders. The game has struggled with stable servers in the week since launch, and there are some problems with the cross-platform play feature as well. We talk about the four character classes on offer in Outriders — Technomancer, Pyromancer, Trickster, and Devastator — and the types of enemies you’ll face in the game. Outriders feels like an amalgamation of other beloved games at times, but it also has some good ideas of its own in the gameplay department.
