Anonymous, 06 May 2018phones without headphone jack should be banned, anyone agree ?I disagree ... personaly I think we all should be forced to go Bluetooth and no wires at all.
"we planned it b4 Apple"
SO WHAT ? most people hate it.
Either do an ALL SCREEN with pop up front camera or DONT DO THIS.
Lol the reality is there that notch ideas comes originally from Lg..... Others steal it.... For example rounded corner.....Lg a true innovation company !!
Rolls, 05 May 2018Does it really matter who planned it first the fact is Apple came out with a notch phone first... more"the fact is Apple came out with a notch phone first"
Are you another ignorant fluff? The Essential phone was the first smartphone with a notch. Apple are not the original. You're as bad as the ignorant ones that say Mii Mix introduced "bezelless" when in fact it was Sharp Aquos.
"It’s actually incorrect to say LG has returned to LCD because this is a part of our two-track strategy. The G lineup will stick to LCD while the V models will deploy OLED."
What's the point of the G series then? Reduce it to a mid ranger and keep the V as Flagship. Only a nunce would buy a "Flagship" priced G series when the V series is superior.
Anonymous, 06 May 2018"We planned the dumb design be for those guys!" That's kinda pathetic thing to say.Lol, now they are competing who was moron earlier.
I would rather buy a phone with bezels than a phone with a notch...
And I decide to stick with my S8 pretty much as long as it's still working or until something that will make me say "WOW" appears on market. Last phone to make me say "WOW" was the S8.
All the phones are same/similar recently, prices are high and yet improvements are minor. The market is pretty much satiated, most of the phones will serve all needs and purposes of average users just fine. Also, the variety of phones was never as big as it is at this moment. Not to mention all the time increasing number of manufacturers. Even people who want to have best and latest phone all the time have given up on it since less than every 6 months there's newer phone with some new feature or improvement, which isn't significant but costs A LOT!
What a combination, LCD display and the notch. Perhaps this is LG's biggest invention, to introduce the phenomenon notch to the world just before Apple. Why don't you just make a full bezelless phone. And about OLED screen, we all know it is not cheap, so you can not put it to every phones you made, don't be cheap LG.
"We planned the dumb design be for those guys!"
That's kinda pathetic thing to say.
Right, you didn't copied the only retarded Iphone "feature", you planned to introduce this retarded "feature" more than one year ago and still managed to introduce the retarded feature late to the party...talk about retards
Anonymous, 05 May 2018Huawei said exactly same thing Nope Huawei only said it considered using notch design before iPhone X launched not that they planned it before Apple did. There's a subtle difference there.
When all the phones are botched, then you looked at Samsung phones, what a beauty!
Does it really matter who planned it first the fact is Apple came out with a notch phone first so it's a blatant copy of Apple iPhone x.show some originality LG the G7 is a rip off as is the p20 from Huawei and the rest of them new androids coming out .All the new androids look the same today so boooooooooring in design and not much better underneath just give me a phone with a damn good camera that takes execellent puctures day and night and 40000mah battery so I don't have to charge it every night .there is not one phone in this category ,and no the P20 is not that phone the camera defaults to ten mp. The photos look soft and soft fultermlike day time photos are a ordinary at best .hate the notch full stop.
"but the South Korean company nods in negative if you say it's a copied design"
OMG, am I reading this right? Fighting over who came out with the great idea of cutting a whacking huge big chunk out of the screen.
C'mon are you avin a laff?
I'm not sure what's worse:
- a poor copy that makes for a really ugly design or
- to design that thing first by yourself O_O .
AnonD-744321, 05 May 2018first Samsung didn't make a notch because that will make them loss the respect of there users ... moreI just hope they skip this notch trend in future phones or that they make it a G-serie thing and dont add it to the V-serie. Or if they do (since the v10 and v20 had a second display) and since its the 2018 trend that they remove it in their 2019 line even Samsung didn't include a notch in their S9s.
AnelMScigliani, 05 May 2018that could be right....but that notch doesn't had any camera or sensors, is only for decorativ... moreIt's still a notch and LG/Apple decided to use Motorola's idea and put features in it.
That's BS, they should be ashamed of themselves!
iPhone X made notches a trend. They knew of it and they should change their design if they were honest.
The notched plans for iphoneX were known one year ago, when LG has decided to change their G7 plâns and start from scratch, it's obvious that they did it just to copy Apple.
And what makes it more obvious, both for them and oppo/OnePlus is the lower bezel.
The reason iPhone X has a notch is because they wanted to minimize bezels, you can see it on its design that the lower bezel is minimal and in order to keep the upper bezel as minimal, the only option was to grow it locally where the camera and sensors needed to be placed, this is what created the notches.
The LG 7 has a quite big lower bezel, if they wanted to maximize screen estate, this where they should focus, the same goes for the new OnePlus too.
If you have an upper bezel as big as the bottom level G7 has, you host the camera and sensors there and then have a minimal lower bezel without notches. But no, the intention was to simply copy the Apple trend...
Same goes for the vertical camera set up.
Just because Apple does it, cheap monkeys copy them, even if it's right or not...
