From “Lucky Goldstar” to “Life’s Good” to … Last Gasp. That’s the rough trajectory of LG Mobile: a technology brand that over the past twenty years went from a strong second choice for American dumbphone buyers, to the only game in town if you wanted the hottest messaging phones available, to a case study on how to do Android smartphones differently – for better, and for worse.

Join Michael Fisher for a MrMobile retrospective on LG Mobile. From the LG Chocolate to the LG Wing (and the Pradas, Rumors, Flexes and Optimii in between) we’ll re-live LG’s highs and lows, and try to extract a useful lesson from its 2021 withdrawal from the mobile tech space.
