    LG V30 is ditching the second screen
    Android Authority says it has confirmed with a source close to development on the LG V30 that it will not feature a second screen but will instead feature a floating bar.

    Everyone I know who had one of these never really used the feature anyway, so it makes sense they've decided to move away from it. Their mod concept only lasted one phone, I'm surprised the second screen lasted two phones.
  2. I think people are going to be much more upset that the V30 is likely to be the end of the removable battery.

    I never actually saw a V20, so don't know what was so special.

    With the fact that everyone is aping the iPhone for all the wrong reasons, making disposable phones with thimble sized batteries, the v10 and v20 were special. They weren't the highest end of specs, but they had a flagship experience and retained the most features that power users actually cared about.

    A design that allows extended batteries.
    Support for expandable storage.
    A quality dac along with a proper headphones output.
    The second screen thing might have been the most gimmick portion of it, but I could see it helping when you're using a full screen app or gaming, and can program it to have dedicated menu button and the like. I think the biggest problem, was that LG didn't really allow anyone to really program it fully. So it's usability was limited by LG most of all. Just like the modularity of the g5.

    It was a real surprise when the v20 beat Google's pixel to the punch of being the first phone to ship with Android 7. As long as the more essential power users features are there in the v30, I don't know if I could say I'd miss the second screen feature.
