The LG G2 was launched a few months ago and features some pretty impressive hardware, especially its camera which seemed to take some pretty decent shots even in low-light conditions. Given its specs and mostly-favorable reviews, we would have expected the handset to be a huge success for LG, but as it turns out that might not be the case, at least so far. According to recent reports, the LG has only managed to sell 2.3 million LG G2 units to date, which is about 4 months since its release. This definitely falls short of LG’s initial projections where they estimated that they would be able to hit 3 million units sold in Q3 alone.
Oddly enough the handset did not do as well as we might have imagined back home in South Korea, where the handset has only managed 600,000 units to date, which slightly beats out the LG G Pro of 2012 by about 60,000 units. Many are speculating that the handset will see an increase in sales during the holiday season , so perhaps LG will see a spike in units sold then, so until then we guess we will have no choice but to wait and see. In the meantime what do you guys think of the LG G2’s sales so far? Given its hardware and features, why is this handset not as big a hit as it ought to be?
