LG V20, HTC U Ultra, who knows what else: what do you think about secondary ticker screens?

LG V20, HTC U Ultra, who knows what else: what do you think about secondary ticker screens?
So, LG did a weird little thing with the V10 — it stuck a tiny, secondary screen on top of the phone's main display. Used for notifications, quick shortcuts to apps and utilities, or just an always-on clock screen, the ticker has found its niche of fans, despite the fact that many would rather see it move to the bottom of the phone, where it's more easily accessible.

The feature was also present on the successor — the LG V20, and can also be seen on the brand-new HTC U Ultra. So, it seems it's going to stick around for a while.

In 2015, when the V10 was announced, we asked you what you think about the then fresh concept – the ticker screen. 40% said "gimmick", 60% went with "useful". We wonder whether these numbers have changed since.
