If the LG V30 doesn't have a secondary ticker screen, will you miss it?


Alright, folks, we are gearing up for another exciting period of the year — the August-September phone announcement bonanza, with IFA in Berlin, and Apple's iPhone keynote. Among the major players we are about to see, there is LG's upcoming super-powered phablet — the LG V30.

Now, if you've been following for a while, you probably know that the LG V10 and LG V20 both had this weird secondary “ticker” screen, which housed notifications, app shortcuts, media controls, an always-on clock, and some utility toggles. However, it seems it will be gone for the latest iteration of the phone series.

Leaks insist that LG is done with the ticker for now. Instead, the V30 will have an extra-tall 18:9 display and its software will feature a floating bar-type of a menu, which would simulate the ticker's features.

Last time we asked about the secondary display was just after HTC launched the U Ultra with its own ticker on top. Back then, nearly 65% of people said they believe it to be a useful feature and not a gimmick. Well, now that it seems to be going away from the V30, will you miss it?

Will you miss the LG V series' ticker screen?
