The popular phone maker may have said goodbye to the LG market, but Apple and Samsung have begun offering better offerings to customers with older LG phones. Both companies are allowing customers to exchange old LG phones. Currently, this offering has been launched in South Korea. Apple is one step ahead of Samsung and has made a special offer.
According to media reports, Apple has launched a special event in collaboration with local mobile service providers. Under this, LG users will be awarded 150,000 won (about Rs 9,750) in addition to the smartphone’s trade-in value. This could prove to be good for South Korean LG users. This exchange program for Apple runs until September 25th.
