Chris, 16 Sep 2020Come on people...it has one full 6.8 inch screen with one 3.8ish screen. Why would I want to p... moreIt's funny you say that, because I personally loathe LG's dual screen approach with the second screen as an attachable accessory. However, I find this dual-screen approach to be much more "legit", as it's part of the device and therefore doesn't require to take it on or off (if you choose to only use the primary screen). Overall, it's a cool concept phone.
This has nothing to do with common sense. It's all pure personal preference, I do hope you realize that.
To quote cincyreds62:
"it's obviously not targeted toward you. to say the [half]-dual screen is useless is ridiculous. [...] obviously the phone is not for you. i, on the other hand would get a lot of use out of that secondary display."
Overall, a cool concept phone (had to repeat that twice in case if it didn't click for you).
I live in Tanzania and I love the phone and how much does it cost? And Is It Possible To Transport It?
Its great tech but its lacking battery it would been great if it had more battery
Why's there so much fighting in the comments? Its quite obvious this phone isn't for everyone. Me personally, this will probably be the first non-budget phone I buy. I can have a fullscreen youtube video at the top while chatting to friends at the bottom. I currently use the split screen feature on my phone to do this every single day. Also, when I don't need it, it becomes a perfectly normal smartphone. I don't have to unfold anything to use it normally. It's clear to me that LG have thought through several real world use cases for this phone, and mine match many of them.

Bud what do you think the wing functionality and all that software is intended to do. Make it so all those extra accessories are less necessary. Use some common sense here. Why do you think filmmakers use all that gear. Because they think it improves the quality of their footage? No. No amount of gear fixes the fact that this can only shoot in 4k. (I would say 4k30 but gsmarena somehow lists it being capable of 4k60 which is theoretically impossible given the fact that the slow 765G doesn't support 4k60. I'm assuming it's due to an error on gsmarena's part, but I'm not going to say anything that can't be proven)
> "The camera is more than enough for anyone who only shoots daily vlog for YouTube or Facebook or whatever"
Buddy the fact that you say "only shoots daily vlog" shows you know it's flawed meaning the camera isn't a reason to buy this. The word "only" is a keyword here. Meaning there's much better alternatives.
> "I'm not a mobile gamer myself, so I wouldn't comment on anything about that. That's your own personal opinion."
No it's pretty factual. Not an opinion.
> "Lol, I HATE tapping the screen and access the buttons and bar. It's totally ruining my video experience. I want to only see THE video, not a bunch of controls on the bottom. That is why I always watch videos in Picture-in-Picture mode"
So let me get this straight, you're distracted by the 4 controls on the screen when in fullscreen for the 3 seconds you have them on to use them, but you're not distracted by the literal entirety of the screen when using picture in picture? And you're not going to be distracted by the entirety of the second display always showing when using the Wing? Buddy you need to rethink your entire argument it makes zero sense whatsoever.

_the process of forgetting our brand as a phoen maker start along time ago & ppl doesnt like us anymore, even they doesnt pay anymore for it.
SO WHAT WE CAN DO EMPLOYEE?
_we can make something strange & so weird, just in case ppl dont foget us compeletly & start talk about us as a phone maker that still exist!
even we dont need to made it as abundance, bcuz we put high price on it inside a high midrange chipset.
as you know the ability of us in making phones are not like past.
in other words
we just WANNA MAKE THE NOISE that we still exist & we still breathing as a phone maker
joe nodden, 20 Sep 2020Then disprove me. Disprove you? Easy.
>"You linked two Unbox Therapy videos where he uses the Wing and you said "What's there to like about this? A lot.". Meaning if he mentions the camera as something to like, that's your point, not mine. So you're saying the camera is something to like. So why on Earth would you now say that "Not everyone is a ... mobile filmmaker" when one of your points was literally the camera. That's so unbelievably contradictory."
Contradictory my bottom! Mobile filmmakers don't only use the phone itself to record movie. They use a bunch of additional gears to get the best out of the smartphone camera. Here's an example: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ycpqv36s0Fg
The camera is more than enough for anyone who only shoots daily vlog for YouTube or Facebook or whatever and frequently uses a gimbal to leave that tool behind and only use this Wing 5G to vlog. Even I would do it since I can see huge potential for social media live streaming.
I'm not a mobile gamer myself, so I wouldn't comment on anything about that. That's your own personal opinion.
"It's beyond simple to just tap the screen and access the buttons and bar the same way."
Lol, I HATE tapping the screen and access the buttons and bar. It's totally ruining my video experience. I want to only see THE video, not a bunch of controls on the bottom. That is why I always watch videos in Picture-in-Picture mode as I don't have to worry about all those controls. After seeing how YouTube works on the Wing 5G, I've so gotta have one of that! It's intuitively exciting!
"You're not supposed to be using your phone constantly while driving. People like you are the reason fatal car crashes happen every 30 seconds."
I'm with YUKI93 about Google Maps and call integration thing. If you use your phone on hand while driving, that is for sure dangerous. But since YUKI93 mentions phone stand, I'm totally siding him. You can even use the voice assistant from the phone and ask it to do something for you. I've always hooked up my Google Pixel 3 with a phone stand in my car and only use Google Assistant to interact. Definitely a total hands-free driving right there.

How incredibly boring and nerdy you have to be to even ask a question that literally no one cares about?!
Questions: why does the bottom part have ugly bezels/chamfers? Why doesn't this have a 3.5 mm headphone input? Why doesn't the SoC in this have 802.11 ax/ WiFi 6 COMM ? Why has lg made this waste of time product?
