    Just curious how much actually like and or oppose the curved screen of the V30. It's a fact that everyone is frustrated they can't install a proper tempered glass screen protector, some manufacturers know that people like installing screen protectors so they made their phones more flat. For future reference, should LG continue the curved trend or go back to a flat screen? The G6 flat screen was great, though the specs were lacking.

    I personally 100% prefer a flat display.

    I like it for using (fitting it into the curve) Sesame. Otherwise, I don't think I would notice anything. It does feel nice. Rub it.

    I prefer a flat display; however, if I like the phone enough, I will buy it with a curved display and just attempt to find a screen protector to try and compensate for that.

    i have to use screen protectors, so a curved screen sucks. curved just looks pretty, but in real life i think many have their phones in cases, so whats the point...

    I don't even think the curves look pretty. Biggest mistake LG could have made IMO is following the glass back trend and now adopting the pointless curves. That's Samsung's world, the rest of the market was already doing it better.

    Lateck,
    Which brand are you using and how's the touch sensitivity? Is it full adhesive or just glued edges?

    It's shiney and curved! Gotta show it off! I don't understand curved TVs and monitors, there's an annoying glare to it. The LG G Flex was a strange phone really, I kinda laughed at it.

    Did you think it helped LG become more mainstream and attracted non traditional LG users? AKA Samsung/Pixel/Apple users? I wonder if it helped boost sales. They should have just made the G series glass/curved and the V series rugged/metal. To think of it, LG had gotten a lot of **** for making "ugly" phones so that may be why.

    I believe that's why they did it, but it may be too soon to tell how well it worked.

    Exactly, 3 in 4 people (maybe more) will slap a case on the phone. Once you have a case on it, you can't really tell what phone it is. And the majority of people always want screen protectors, LG needs to see that. Apple is smart and they know, their phones have a slight 2.5d curve but still allows for easy installation of glass screen protectors. Samsung curved their phones to make them "different".

    To answer @flyingkytez's question. I use a Wimaha 3D Curved Tempered Glass Screen protector.
    It works very well and I believe it is full adhesive.
    I have replaced it once when I dropped my phone and I chipped the edge of the protector.
    Better it then the screen.

    I don't care either way. If I had to choose...flat. I think LG felt the need to compete with Samsung. The slight curve isn't causing a problem with my screen protector, so no issue there.

    Are you 100% positive that screen sensitivity isn't affected? I'm reading all over Reddit and people say it's hopeless.

    I am not 100% sure as I have only used my V30 a day or two (maybe less) without the screen protector.
    So, I will not swear under oath it isn't affected....... I don't really know. But to me, I have no problems!

    I'm happy and to me, that's all that matters :-)

    honestly. I didn't know the screen,as in the part you interact with was curved. i thought it was just the front glass panel. if that tells you anything. I've been using it for about two months now and it hasn't bothered me. it's no where near as curved as say a Samsung phone

    The curve on the V30 doesn't trigger accidental touches like the S7 edge I used to have. Also, the visible part of the screen isn't curved like the Edge was. I hated how the visible part of the screen rolled over the side on the edge.

    I despise an edge display but... The feel of the V30 is so much better than the G6 in my opinion.

    bought a puregear curved tempered glass protector and it's the best glass protector i've tried. its not perfect, but it'll do.
    i definetly prefer a flat screen so i can easily put a glass protector on.

    It is a useless thing. If you are under a neon tube, the glare caused by the reflection along the curved edge is very annoying.

    It also complicates the use of a screen protector

    Doesn't even come into play on my v30. I use a Wtbone tempered glass and a Ringke case and have no problems whatsoever.
