Okay, im listening. Make it powerful. Pack it with everything you've got lg. I was a fan back in the day and i hope we are not going to see a second htc fiasco happen.
Bleh, 16 Sep 2020It's funny how all these phone companies are taking old tech and features that existed a ... moreThat approach has worked great for Apple, so no wonder Android manufacturers are finally trying it!
You realize no device 10 years ago had 2 touch screen displays.. if your going to call this lack of innovation then the entire industry has been dying since the first iPhone was released considered even phone to follow it has been a rectangle slab.
Right I also forgot every other phone on the market has a literal Gimbal built into the camera , oh yeah they don't and almost everytime I watch a video or do a conference call on my phone I get notifications that interfere with the video or conference and the wing solves those issues with the smaller display while giving you a more comfortable grip than holding it horizontally.. I see people using selfie sticks to just hold their phone regulary
LG (the mediocre champ)might as well cease smartphone production, along with Huawei(the spyware king).
It's funny how all these phone companies are taking old tech and features that existed a decade or more ago, making minor alterations, putting a spit polish on it, and then saying, "look at how cool and innovative we are!" This is just an updated version of those old phones that slid open and closed. [The old ones were in The Matrix, if I remember correctly.] I've seen this technique with a few different companies now in regards to "innovation." Anything to try and justify charging people $1500 for a phone, eh? lol
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2020How about they tease with ir blaster, removable battery and the other features it abandoned...... moreThey'd lose out on companies pushing out a new model every other week. Removable battery fans like us do not bring them money since we will just buy once every 5 years.
I like that they're thinking out of the box, but it feels like they'd rather spend money on novelty to try to capture sales rather than investing in something much harder: refining their software & features, and supporting it well. For this reason I think LG mobile's death spiral will continue.
Anonymous, 15 Sep 2020How about they tease with ir blaster, removable battery and the other features it abandoned...... moreSo true, i just broke an LG V40 display, now i'm looking for a new V40 one and no stock in Europe as it's an 2018 flagship. Have to buy 2018 flagship because it has phenomenal audio with headphone jack, MQA native and DoP, everything else is 2 years behind on LG V40... I can't understand why they remove really usefull features, not mantain course with historical proven good ones... I would pay 1300 euro for a Huawei P40 Pro with good ESS DAC/ Headphone jack/MQA for Tidal and DoP for SACD RIPs, or 1300 euro for an LG V40 with Huawei P40 features...
How about they tease with ir blaster, removable battery and the other features it abandoned... That would get my attention. As it is shopping for 5 year old devices because those are the ones that have the features I want.
It is fine I guess. The front screen is a lot thinner than I thought so it is no that much fatter than a regular phone plus you get 150% the screen size. Still this is going to have a very short production run as slideout and rollable phones take over the expandable phone market. It better be competitively priced if they want to sell any.
I agree with you, but unforunately, Sony's late choice of 21/9 display ratios is the worst for me. I never use the phone for vídeos, but I do lots of web browsing.
I mean it looks and it looks like it can be a note killer buy lets be honest how actually practical is this thing?
What's a slide out screen? Like the stretchable tcl screen prototypes?

It's just gimmicky if you ask me.
YUKI93, 15 Sep 2020I wonder what LG has in mind with the slide-out display. Is it an ode to the old V10 and V20?I am pretty sure it is similar to this :

Little problem for LG.
They spend tons of R&D on these, then they barely sell.
Chinese brands will copy, spend zero R&D and sell much more.
