Weekly poll results: Xiaomi Mi A2 gets a warm welcome, A2 Lite needed to do better

Earlier today Samsung reported similar Q2 numbers - around KRW 14.8 trillion (€11.3 billion). Back to LG - analysts expect that higher marketing expenses for new devices like the LG G7 ThinQ weighed down on profit. LG will...
