Sturdily designed, the LG V10 provides a lot of promise in the smartphone market. It gives users more camera control through manual modes, both for stills and videos. There is also a fingerprint sensor, two front-facing cameras (for wider selfies), a removable battery, and an expandable memory slot. It is a feature-packed smartphone that has a premium look, feel, and price tag.
The LG V10 is Steel-Clad, Beautiful, and a Great Performer
The LG V10 has stainless steel rails found running down along its left and right edges. There are also metallic accents found along the camera and front-facing audio grille. This makes for one of the most premium-looking and feeling handsets you can find in today’s market. Those interested in purchasing one can get them in five colors.
Upon holding it, the phone feels weighty as it weighs 6.77-ounces or 193-grams. However, it only looks heavy as compared to how it actually weighs on your hands. This is due to the fact that it has a fairly large screen size. It is also because of this fact that many will not be attracted to the V10 phone since not all markets will want a large handset. It doesn’t fit too comfortably inside a pocket because of its large dimensions. Also, using the phone with one hand can be quite difficult.
But enough about its size, what this handset is about is its performance. It has a 5.7-inch display with a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel resolution at 513 pixel density. There is also a small 2.1-inch secondary display situated just atop the main screen which can display things like notifications and other items.
The phone comes with the 5.11 Android Lollipop operating system, which is somehow a letdown for some since 6.0 Marshmallow was already released. There is also the LG custom user-interface to help users run through the apps, and there is also a rear fingerprint sensor.
The smartphone’s camera packs a more than impressive 16-megapixel rear-facing camera, and two 4-megapixel front-facing ones. The rear can record a satisfying 2,160p video while the front can record videos at 1,080p. There are many features included in the built-in camera app, which include a whole slew of manual controls. The camera even performs quite well under low-light conditions.
The LG V10 is feature-packed and one of LG’s best smartphones to date. Those who are interested in purchasing this should just be prepared to shell out more for this premium handset.
