Why are they killing off the V series features? Removal battery, secondary screen and tough built are what makes the V series unique. I guess it's not making money so they killing it off? Now it just look like an upgrade to G6. So they are killing off the G6 too? What a bummer. Talking about killing 2 birds with one stone except is a shot in their own foot
Indeed. I'm curious what are the differences between G and V now. But I'm glad that LG keep the headphones jack around.

To be honest I was so hyped when I saw the first render of V30 with secondary screen at the bottom and super thin benzel. It looked like the future.

Now I'll just stay with my V20 for the hopefully next 3 years, I guess

A slightly better camera, faster processor, AMOLED screen would be the differentiating factors this time I guess.

If v30 has AMOLED screen, theorectically it doesn't need the secondary screen as AMOLED can turn on individual pixels to display "AOD" unlike LCD

Maybe that's why LG is abandoning the secondary ticker display on the LG V30

That's why they have a built in theme engine I guess. At least can hide most of the cartoons.

If it's oled then it doesn't need 2nd display unless they totally abandon the function.

How to removable battery if they want ip68?

Just have to accept it.

Actually I will take removal battery than IP68. That's my preferred choice of course. So far all my phones stayed dry. But with all the contenders moving towards IP68, LG has to as well. By looking at things moving now, I think sooner or later LG will cease either the G or V series since the line between them is diminishing.

I don't bring my phone with me to the swimming pool or bathroom, so I don't really need IP68

IDK about the AMOLED screen tho. Hopefully no burn in if they are planning to somehow use it to replace secondary screen.

Well here is my take on LG for them to be successful
1) warranty - they need to give 2 years warranty for people to gain trust that they have indeed fixed the boot loop issues that having been plaguing the phones.
2) battery life - LG has never been known to have good battery life but this has got to be a priority now that most new phones have good battery management and one of the criteria that people are searching for when buying phone is battery life.
3) go with the flow - LG timing on phone release is really bad.. look at G6 (flagship) still using previous generation CPU. Now they are going to release v30 based on sd835 but other companies already looking at the next generation processor so if they continue this trend they will always be slower than other companies by a generation. Study the roadmap and go with the flow LG! You have to skip a generation and sync yourself with latest technology
4) software - LG is the pioneer in some must hv features such as double tap wake and sleep that a lot of phones followed. They hv some smart location features like turn on or off wifi at home. They should expand this more to include profiles ( sound, bluetooth, wifi, data) vased on location. I'd also like to see more customization on nav buttons like what they hv on OnePlus or the p10 (super nifty thinking out of the box with home button gestures). All these software features make your brand standout and makes user can't live without such features.

Basically, LG needs a revamp if they do not want to continue losing money in their mobile department.
