    I'm thinking about switching from VZ to T-Mo and my phone of choice, Motorola, isn't an option. I know about buying an unlocked phone but the deals they have going are pretty good. I've never had an LG. I've only dealt with Moto, HTC, and Samsung. So how are LG phones, specifically the Thin Q as far as built quality and reliability? I know the specs match up with the S9. Thanks for your opinions.

    I seriously considered getting an lg phone last year. the only reason I did not get it was the release date was months after the announcement. Look like the thin q is getting good reviews. I think it is worth considering.

    I've been using it daily ... I think it's a great phone... quality build is solid and ticks all the right boxes... last LG phone I had was G4 so this is definitely a step up big time... I just for the July security update...

    I've been reading the reviews and between those and your comments in here I'm liking this phone. My only concern is the glass back. Should I be worried? I will have it in a case. My Droid Z is aluminum and its nice.

    I'm not a huge fan of LG (have nothing against them either...I'm neutral), but that is one sweet looking phone.

    I know it varies from carrier to carrier but how much LG bloat was there? We'll be using t-mobile if we switch.
