Yes! Something that breaks the norm. Would buy without second thoughts!

My note 5 was a super fluid phone with all apps running. And TouchWiz has unique features with Android yet to implement. S8 is gone further with it's Dex system. Another plus which no one has. Again it's another TouchWiz feature.

I do not settle for less or for what just the manufacturers give. That is why LG is always a no go for me
Cool idea but with the screen being the single most expensive component of a phone surely end users are going to have to pay to have two of them.
Having experience with LG in the past I am sure the slider will break after a year of use, GPS will stop working after 2 months and the screen will start shadowing after 6 months. Also bootloop
Oh look. Another concept by somebody. Maybe I should do one and there can be articles about it.
Anonymous, 28 May 2017Note 7 and mate 9 looks better than s8.Jesse Clark is blind. Curved display is horrible. Cosmetic gimmick. The Note7 looked too much like a taller and less curved S7 edge which is a nice design but far more practical.
Better looking phone is the Huawei P9 Plus in white. I have the glacial silver HTC One M7, space gray iPhone SE, and titanium silver S7 edge next to each. Three of the best designs of all-time but I will say the 2013 HTC One M7 looks the best four years later. It is my LEAST favorite phone too because of the horrendous camera, slow charging, and how laggy it got. I really don't care about "beautiful designs." I don't buy phones to show off. I grew up in the Nintendo Game Boy era when design don't mean squat. Function over form first.
My favorite, favorite phones are considered ugly af phones! The LG G5 is like the PS Vita. So underappeciated but amazing. It doesn't even look bad to me and people mistake it as the Nexus 6P. My Pixel is uglier but I feel this is the most fluid Android I ever had. Even more fluid than my iPhone SE. You want to show off, find a beautiful woman or buy a really nice car. Not some $600-$800 phone for reassurances about your insecure self who covers it up in ugly, plastic cases anyway.
Performance > Design
Samsung thinks the opposite. Will never get an S8, S9, Note8, or any future Samsung flagship until they rid of TouchWiz/Grace UX completely and go back to a flat display. And I was using my S7 edge yesterday and I remember how much I hate glass backs.
Eww! If it ends up being a slider, then 2017 will go down as one of the worst years for smartphone upgrades next to 2015 during the Snapdragon 810 fiasco.
I am actually not annoyed by big screens anymore. I carry around my PS Vita slim in my pocket to get used to the bulk. Curved display is more annoying than carrying around a 5.5" - 5.7" flat display.
Love my V20. Titan color but looks like my stealth Batman phone or the Shaq Daddy among my phones. Lots of people want to hold it. Neither my S7 edge or iPhone SE ranks close to it among my favs.

I understand LG intentions however, I personally do not like this design and hopes LG has ditched this design plan and go with a traditional set up with two screens. However I would like to see the secondary display moved from the top the bottom of the phone.
