How to turn the LG V10's secondary ticker screen off

The LG V10's Second screen (the so-called "ticker") landed the phone a steady spot among the more peculiar smartphones that came out in 2015. It's an always-on mini display that resides in a strip above the "regular" screen. Instead of having an LED to alert the user for pending notifications, the ticker will always be dimly lit, showing the clock and apps that have messages waiting.

This is comfy to have, sure, but there are these rare occasions when one might want to turn the thing off. The phone will automatically shut it off whenever it goes into power saving mode, but that's not to say that the user doesn't have control over the secondary display's behaviour. Here are the options you need to visit in order to have it turned on / off whenever you want.

What the G5 can be. A flex like the G Flex wouldnt hurt either.

Or conversely, you are saying: You, what your dad should have been... Your sister, what your mum should have been. Right? Hey, every OEM needs to come up with new stuffs with each and every new release! So, G4 is G4 and V10 is V10! Please try being more credible; your comment makes absolutely no sense!

but it does , if they released this as G4 they would be in much better position than they are now.If G4 had all this much more people would chose it over S6 series.

Really? But the S6 has all much more that the iPhone 6S, but people chose it over the S6! Heck, what proves that the V10's specs and features can't make people chose it over the S6 or even the Note5? To each his own!

Should we say the same thing about the S6 and the Note 5? That the Note 5 is what the S6 should have been from the start?

Who, fool? It's not a matter of foolishness, but of taste and preference. Not everyone likes the Galaxy S6 or Samsung.

Not a good year for LG. Wait to see what next year brings. If the SD820 is as good as they say should be a stellar year. Make the G5 with the V10 build and lose the silly ticker then we're talking.
