How to customize LG V30's Floating bar and make the most out of it

One of the notable new features of the LG V30 in comparison with either the V20 and the V10 is... the lack of a dedicated ticker display sitting atop the regular screen.

Probably a minor setback for the die-hard fans of LG's specc'd-out phone lineup, the absence of this former highlight of the V-series is set to make the V30 that much more mainstream and appealing to the regular customer.

In lieu of the ticker display LG has thrown in a so-called Floating Bar feature, that nothing more than a glorified shortcut hub and app launcher. It's not as customizable as we'd like it to be but might still be useful to many.

We are about to show you how to enable this feature and customize it per your heartfelt content.

Check out our guide and you will know how to, too!

I prefer Edge panels, and Samsung has tons of them. They're simply more complete.

WHY no recent apps? I use it the most on my V10's secondary screen

They even use white, the morons. Don't these idiots know that oled's advantage is that it turns off individual pixels to preserve battery power when black is used? So use black and an always-on feature like e.g. Nokia's Sleeping Screen if you want something fancy and useful.
