Poll results: to each his own, V10-style ticker and G5-style Always on display are equally liked
Last year's LG V10 was our first experience with the always-on concept for LG's screens. The V10's top has a small, strip-like secondary display, which remains on when the phone is in standby, dimly lit and always showing the time and pending notifications. It also serves the purpose of housing different panels – for favorite app shortcuts, recent apps, quick toggles, et cetera. All the while, it does look a bit off and unorthodox.

The LG G5's Always on screen also offers a constant display of valuable information when the display is sleeping, but there are no extra panels. Needless to say, there is no extra value added when the phone is awake. However, the phone does look much more mainstream and the fact that the always-on information is shown on its main display means it gets more real estate to work with for larger, more easily visible clock and notifications.

So, with the LG V20 peeking around the corner, possibly with a notification ticker of its own, we wondered which of the two solutions you preferred more if you were to choose. Here's how the vote tallied:

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

Ticker please - panels make my multitasking life so much easier
