Most reviews seem to love the LG G2. Despite this, LG’s flagship has failed to meet the company’s sales expectations.

The sales figures were revealed by Asia Today, a Korean-speaking site, which was spotted and translated by AndroidBeat. The site reports, “They say that sales of the G2 have barely broken 600,000 units in South Korea during the product’s first four months of availability. To put that into some perspective, the company’s 2012 flagship phone, the Optimus G Pro, sold 540,000 units during the same span of time.

“Moving on to international figures, the company had set itself an internal goal of selling 3 million units of the G2 during the third quarter, but instead, sales were somewhere in the range of sub 2.3 million. Add to this the increased marketing spend LG has committed to in order to get their name out there, and it looks like there will definitely be some management reshuffling by the time this year comes to a close.”
