Durable, easy to use, adds function.
After reading some reviews here I'm quite surprised at the experiences of others.
I bought the dual screen attachment with low expectations, thinking it would be gimmicky, fragile and wouldn't integrate well with everyday life. It proved all that wrong.
I have dropped the phone many times in the case, and while it picks up scuffs quite readily I've yet to experience any cracking which I'm pretty impressed with. The hinge itself is detented to a degree, but I believe this is just the result of friction fit. A stronger detent in the 180 degree open position would be appreciated, but that's really my only complain with the construction. Camera lines up great, ample bored room for headphone jack and the case doesn't do anything to hinder the stereo audio.
The screen is nice and responsive, the native UI for adjusting/syncing brightness is really nice. It's easy enough to force widemode on apps where it isn't natively supported, they don't necessarily work as intended but I find it very nice when I want a little bit bigger screen in front of me when I'm cooking at my stove at home. Makes for a great stand when you invert it. Great for running a messaging app while watching videos, running an e-reader etc etc.
The charging adaptor is a matter of taste I think, I like it because it reduces the in-out of USB connections into the phone which we all know over time can cause problems. An easy breakaway connection like this is ideal for me. I would honestly prefer a dedicated cable w/ the magnetic attachment rather than the small dongles. I purchased a spare and good thing I did, because I lost one quite quickly.
Overall I would give the case a solid 9/10. My expectations were not terribly high even given the price tag, but the dual screen exceeded them and lived up to the quality standards I've come to expect from LG after using their phones for the past 7 years.
I will miss LG's mobile division.

Pretty cool but fragile "case"
The 2nd screen is very useful and cool, but the shell around the case is very fragile. It cracks around the edges even without being dropped. Another complaint is the weird magnetic charger. It's a lot better to use a wireless pad. I really liked this accessory, but having the corners crack after only a few months is sad

Stuck with it again now
Unable to add the dual screen
I am very unhappy with this phone as I am now told that I cannot add the dual screen.
