Question Why some markets got things that the U.S. market did not. anyone know why?

I have been a long time LG fan, I have the G2, the G Flex and now the G3. along with 2 LG Tone+ and a LG Tone Ultra. but to the point, watching the unveiling show and seeing people unbox their LG's I got really excited. that LG actually noticed the 4K display would hurt battery life, so why not compensate with an extra battery and a wall charger for them. Then i was really excited and waited patiently for it to come to sprint. Then sitting at bestbuy on the day it came out and noticed that we didnt get anything, hell we didnt even get the cheap headphones. WE GOT NOTHING. my question is, WHY? why them and not us.

and after dealing with LG customer service over the past serval days. my impression and love for the company just nosedived. i was given nothing but stupid remarks and sarcasm. and one instance i was even told that i probably didnt have the LG G3. im just disappointed about this whole experiance and how i was treated when trying to get answers.

anyone know why they gave it away to some markets but not the US?

Exactly. It's not LG's fault. The phone also comes with an FM Tuner, which AT&T blocked and Verizon also disabled some features. The carriers are the evil ones here, not LG.

LG G3 (Sprint/Shine Gold)
iPad Air 32GB
Dell Lattitude 10 (Win8)
Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 (sold)
Galaxy Nexus (retiring soon)
Nexus 7 32GB (sold)
Galaxy Tab 10.1 (sold)
Galaxy Tab 2 7.0[/I]

Love my Android(and yes, Apple too)!!
