I don't really care, if it has great battery life and always on display, it's good enough for me.
I was wondering that no more companies in India are interested to grab mobile market with low budget segment except Redmi.
I am really feeling fed up with redmi. That they are only who want to make evolution in Indian technology
It aint even out yet, and I already know this year LG will flop along with sony and htc lol

lg didnt learn from mistakes they committed with lg g5 and g6?
people are going to buy mobiles with oled as quality buying measure. lol!!!! rip lg

(HDR+/4k excluded)
peachy001, 17 Mar 2018Some Nokia Lumia devices, with LCD had it. Many very old Nokia candy bar phones had it too.Some lenovo/moto too (with LCD), cuts many hours of stand-by having it on :/, but even on devices with OLED, the always on has some battery endurance cost (most gsmarena reviews give you the numbers)
peachy001, 17 Mar 2018Some Nokia Lumia devices, with LCD had it. Many very old Nokia candy bar phones had it too.The G5 has it, too.
Coupled with a small battery, this device is surely DOA. LG, ring HTC, collaborate on some devices.
LG's cost cutting is what loses them sales.
Just quit the phone market KG, you are hopeless.
AnonD-744321, 17 Mar 2018LCD on a notch phone ? bad idea this way you can't turn it off to save battery one question ... moreSome Nokia Lumia devices, with LCD had it. Many very old Nokia candy bar phones had it too.
Well it's not like their smartphone oleds are any good to begin with.
They argue for cost cutting but choosing to use notched screen which is more expensive than regular square.
Lg is so stupid
Still rocking my LG G5 since 2016. It's LCD screen are the best among the isheep retina displays and Scamsung OLED displays( WHICH MADE MY EYES GONE SHORT SIGHTED). And u know why I love LCD display, it's because they don't have burn-in display issue, not what u see on the other OLED screen right???
LCD on a notch phone ?
bad idea this way you can't turn it off to save battery
one question how do you do the "allways on display" with an LCD screen ?
another thing if battery consumption is higher than what is the use of it ?
Kyo, 17 Mar 2018You can have always on display with a LCD like in the LG g5True, but the battery consumption will be high.
How very convenient that it is a 'cost cutting measure' and all talk of a '800 nit' display has vanished.
Akinaro, 17 Mar 2018trick is that companies dont cut prices of device it self when they making cuts like that. Te... moreYou were so wrong on display prices of a smartphone. Usually display is the most costliest component of a smartphone. It is neither SOC nor camera modules or anything else costs more than display. So the difference between LED and OLED is high, it can't be 2-4$ difference.. It is 80-120$ for OLED display unit alone, then let LEDs can be between half of them.
