LG's non-G7 to come with an LCD instead of an OLED display as a cost-cutting measure

17 March 2018
While the G-series has been firmly in LCD territory, the V30's OLED and the notch on the upcoming model suggested a switch in tech.

Since the screen of LG G6 is already really good so that improved and more efficient MLCD on the G7 should be a good enough for everyone 😎

after seeing these roumered renders, its very hard to believe that the company (LG) who is always innovative in mobile industry is now copying the designs #notch (of fruit phone).......

Prefer LCD over OLED anyway.

OK LG. I'm not waiting for G7.

Levy, 18 Mar 2018You're wrong.Am I?
Ya know when a company outs a 1200$ phone, and issues a public official warning statement about possible burn in of its screen, and what you should NOT do with your screen to avoid its problems....its a complete turn off. Paying such money definitely shoildnt come with these kind of use "instructions".
And its a samsung oled.
So dont even start about Samsung oled being any better than LGs.
Samsung just doesnt issue official warnings. Leaves users to find it out for themselves in time.

Anonymous, 18 Mar 2018Just don't know why some insist on buying amoled/oled phone... moreThe vast majority of buyers don't have a clue which screen technology their phone uses, and just bought it because it was in their price range, and they have some vague notion that is supposed to be good.

Akinaro, 17 Mar 2018""but you also get unrealistic color reproduction, speciall... moreGS7 user here, *just* passed the 2 year mark, and can confirm visible degradation of my screen. The status bar is regularly black, and is now a stripe of (for example) noticeably truer white than the rest of the screen when viewing a white webpage; the rest of the screen has gone slightly yellow.

Not gonna blame them if they go for IPS. I have yet to see OLED displays that didn't suffer from some terrible fault. Terrible uniformity, burn in, colors too saturated, dead pixels. I'd rather have a panel that works than some shitty OLED
