RIP LG Mobile, Nokia X20 G20 & C20, Legion Duel 2 | TSW57



Lots of tech news this week including LG Mobile calling it quits after decades in the biz, plus Nokia and Lenovo smartphone launches. The Nokia X20 and X10, G20 and G10 and C20 and C10 are the latest budget-friendly blowers from HMD, although still no sign of that PureView flagship. Meanwhile Lenovo’s Legion Phone Duel 2 boasts killer specs and serious gaming features for blazing through Genshin Impact and other titles.

This week, as well as learning of the tragic passing of Geoffrey from Rainbow back in 2018, Tech Spurt Towers was in mourning over the death of LG Mobile. They may have not bothered to bring many phones to the UK and also been a bit bats**t crazy at times, but they were always innovating and surprising. RIP LG.

We also have time to go over last week’s viewer comments, and there’s a guest appearance from a crusty, stinky old friend.

    You’re in my top 3 of tech channels … TechSpurt, Unbox Therapy and MKBHD. Had to unsubscribe to SuperSaf and Flossy Carter because you post so much! Not complaining though!

    To be clear, US phone reviewers have been solely responsible for Sony, LG and HTC pulling out of the US. I have been saying this for over a decade. Marquess Brown Lee (MBKHD or whatever) is only interested in Samsung and Apple. Just like the majority of them. If you go to carrier stores in the US it is iPhone variations ans Samsung Galaxy variations. Ask 10 people on the street and they either have an iPhone or a galaxy. 20 people and someone might have a Motorola. Even though I use Nokia phones exclusively because of their durability, I have never met a stranger who has a Nokia phone. Nor do any of my colleagues. That's not because Nokia makes bad phones but it is because they think only Samsung and Apple phones exist

    Shame about LG. One of my favourite phones was the LG G2 too.
    Wonderful phone.
    They jumped the shark when they tried all that modular stuff and other weird nonsense and lost the plot and never recovered.

    I basically only watch anime, and YouTube videos so those Game of Throne spoilers don't matter to me.

    Also good point on the lack of Sony content from MKBHD. In his 'LG mobile retirement' video he somewhat addressed "YouTubers killed LG mobile", but at the same time… their content won't reflect that exactly.

    See ya next week, and maybe that sock too.

    Chris has come a very long way since his recombu days, from cutting out the background music and hiding his face to getting his mug all over the camera and taking the piss out of anyone in sight haha, on top of all that though his tech reviews have gone through the roof, my weekdays wouldn't be the same without a good bit of techspurt shenanigans

    You know, of course, that you've created a monster and there's no escape. One day there will be a Wanksock World because something needs to fill the void left by Mr. Blobby.
