Poll: LG fans, do you prefer an Always on display, or a ticker screen like the one on the LG V10 / V20
When LG released the V10 last year, we got our first glimpse at the always on technology that has now been incorporated in the G5. The V10's top had a small, strip-like secondary screen, which remained on when the phone is in standby, dimly lit and always showing the time and pending notifications. Said strip was also home to a few panels — with the main screen off, we still had controls over media playback by swiping over the secondary display, and with the phone awake, we had panels like favorite apps, recent apps, personalized message, and quick toggles.

The LG G5's Always on screen also offers a constant display of valuable information when the display is off, but there are no extra panels. Needless to say, there is no extra value added when the phone is awake.

The V10 looked slightly unorthodox thanks to said strip, and was probably an acquired taste for some. The information on the secondary display was also not all that visible, due to the dim light and small icons. The G5 looks much more mainstream and offers more real estate for the clock and notification icons to display, making it easy for the user to view it from a distance. Which one is more to your taste?

Do you prefer the LG V10 ticker screen or LG G5 Always-on display?
