I feel the secondary screen should be at the bottom.....easy to reach for such a big display

Samsung tried a phone with a ticker display once, ity was called the Samsung Galaxy Continuum. I had one and I liked the idea but I think it's biggest downfall was it was a Verizon exclusive. I really liked that phone....

The only problem with V10 is being too large and heavy G4 is more compact. Hopefully, this will have a longer battery life.

Very interesting device. I hope the ticker display works out better for LG than it did for Samsung... I wonder what carriers it will be supported on....

Ocean blue is an awesome color. Phone is beautiful. I love it that they get rid of aluminum. I wish if Nexus 6p was made of stainess steel. Now my list of potential purchase is increasing. 808 with 4gb Ram, everyone was saying before that 808 doesnt support 4gb Ram. Dual cameras should be on back. Anyway, a great phone from LG

Note 5 and 6s plus killer? They may have exynos and a9 chip but this LG V10 have better overall build and design compactness for me. What camera sensor does lg use time? Review this beast and I might buy this.

I think just about everyone uses Sony camera sensors anymore. I wonder what carriers will carry this...

Its probably safe to say over 90% Smartphones uses a Sony sensor. If not, an Omnivision one.

Only 0.1% uses a Samsung/Toshiba one

Omnivision has bigger pixel size in its cams... Why not omnivison? Nexus 6p is producing great pics due to its larger pixel size... Omnivision, if optimized properly, will give better results than sony

The nexus P used a sony 1/2.3 sensor,

ofcourse, it did but it is 1.55 pixel size and bigger pixel proved good... so why not omnivision which has 3.55micron pixel size sensor...

The only thing I don't like with LG is their battery life. They should look into why their devices burns up more juice than competing devices with similar capacities. Improve efficiency and LG will be back on track to really compete.

I want to know how big is it. I've resigned myself to the fact that I need to go to a larger phone to get topline specs but I'm trying to find the smallest phablet.

Found it: Size: 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6mm

Bigger than it's 5.9" screen G Pro 2 at 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3 mm!

the screen of v10 is 5.7" main plus the .021" so all in all its 5.91" the difference in height is just because v10 is more curved and that STAINLESS FRAME is a bit thicker

Smallest and lightest phablet is S6 edge + or galaxy A8 exynos version.

leaked dimensions of Lumia 950xl suggest 151.9mm hieght which is steller and sound false. But if true then the phone will be smaller than edge plus and A8.

With this two display implementation, I wish they had fit a much bigger battery inside this beautifully crafted phone. Like someone else said, I feel like the ticker should have been placed in the bottom especially if they expect us to use it for multitasking functionality - just to make it easier to reach. An interesting phone nevertheless...

I really like what LG is doing. They are still offering all the options any Samsung and Apple product lack this year like removable battery and expandable storage also that manual camera is a photo enthusiasts dream. I'm rooting for ya LG and may get one of these devices if things don't go right with Microsoft.

This looks to be a great phone , except the chipset everything else seems to be on the money. Manual mode in video also sounds great ( if implemented properly). And even for the chipset choice I am more inclined to blame Qualcomm than LG. Hoping this phone is a worldwide release.
