LG V10

LG V10- Introduction

The all new LG V10 has finally been announced and you can bet we rushed to get our hands all over it. After spending some important time with LG V10, we can tell you we like what we see so far.

The LG V10 is the LG’s new dual-display device and the first device in its new V series. The first V series phone is the LG V10, which boasts many of the similar specifications like G4, but packs them into a rugged rubber-backed package with stainless steel rims. The hardware of LG V10 is same as to the LG G4, but two unique features separate it from any other device that we have seen previously the dual-display and dual-camera.

LG V10- Design

Though the phone positively has an eccentric style to it, it holds the overall look LG has now become famous for. The most significant differences with the LG V10 are the part and build quality applied. The latest LG flagship highlights a resistant metal frame composed of SAE grade 316L stainless steel. In addition, the LG V10’s back cover and other parts are covered in plastic. But this is no normal plastic – it is also a Dura-Skin, which is soft to the touch, but durable.

The back also happens to have a very attractive pattern, but few of you may be very excited about the fact that you can pull it off, which grants access to both of the microSD card slot and the removable battery. Also different are the rear buttons. They may look like to those in previous LG’s handsets, but the manufacturer has added capacitive features to the power button, as well as a fingerprint reader. There is a secondary small screen bar above the main display, as well as a dual front-facing camera setup to the right. Both new parts make this a slightly tall phone, so handling does take some time getting used to. One more thing on the back of the device – it has a fingerprint sensor.

LG V10- Display

The LG V10 has a big 5.7-inch QHD IPS Quantum display with a 513ppi and 2,560-by-1,440 resolution. The main screen is bright and crisp with good viewing angles and color reproduction. But it is also the secondary display that draws the eye—especially since it’s always on.

The secondary display is intended to fix the problem of users checking and unlocking their smartphones for every notification. It will give you notifications, quick-launch tools, app shortcuts, time, date, weather, battery status, extended camera settings, and added functionality for select apps

LG V10- Camera

The LG V10’s camera uses e-image stabilization and offers manual video capture, which is really a very cool feature. Although the second screen and all the high-end specifications are so cool, the V10’s best feature may be stored in the camera. It’s the same 16-megapixel camera like G4, but this time, the camera’s great manual mode works for both images and videos. The phone has four mics, so you can even choose any of direction you get the sound from in your video. And it is also shot in 4K, too.

LG popped not one, but two 5-megapixel front cameras on the LG V10. The LG says the both shooters, in tandem with a “Sophisticated Software Algorithm,” enable the LG V10 to take wide-angle photos with fields of view between 80 and 120 degrees. Other cool camera features include 15-second highlight video, which the V10 produces automatically by analyzing the action in the video to find the best half.

LG V10- Battery

On the battery front, we can find the same 3000 mAh battery the LG G4 features. This is no great something special, but users do enjoy having the ability to carry spare batteries. These removable batteries change everything.

LG V10- Hardware & Performance

In terms of hardware, the LG V10 is good-looking much the same as the G4 with a few modification. It has a Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot that can probably take up to 2TB of removable memory (but it does not exist currently); the LG has tested it with a 200GB SanDisk.

Aside from that, there is a 3,000mAh removable battery, all the usual bells, and whistles covering Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC, and USB 2.0. One of the most notable additions to the hardware is one of the fingerprint sensors, which you can find located in the power button. Obviously, this sensor is also used to unlock the phone and turn the display on.

Audiophiles will be satisfied by the addition of 32-bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology. This new system identifies connected devices and also gives sound control options. The LG V10 is also the first to adopt Qualcomm’s QFE2550 closed-loop antenna, allowing for a best voice quality and improved network coverage.

LG V10- Software

However, since LG V10 packs more or less the same specifications as the LG G4, we expect excellent performance. The video features are pretty awesome, and we wish the second screen proves useful instead of gimmicky. It still runs that G UI, on top of Latest Android 5.1.1 Lollipop. The interface continues feeling a little bloated, even if not as much as in the past.

The second screen is a major factor in the software side of things, and it’ll definitely change the way you use your smartphone. This ticker can be set up as “always on” to show the weather, time, date and battery icon when the main display is off. After turning on the front screen, the secondary display will show your shortcuts and favorite apps.

LG V10- Verdict

So all of the things being equal here we have got a pretty interesting phone from LG. Again, it’s going to live alongside the G line of phones. That isn’t going anywhere. And this sort of replaces the “G Pro” line that fizzled out a couple years ago. After spending some time with the LG V10 — and we saw AT&T and Verizon models in both white and black; there will be a kill model and a couple shades of blue, too — there’s a lot to like here.

The one and only my favorite part about LG V10’s secondary screen is that it displays any notifications that come through while you are using the phone. The LG V10 will come in black, blue, beige, white, and opal when it launches.

We don’t have to price just but, but it’ll be available on October 8 in Korea, and thereafter worldwide. In the US, look for it on AT&T, Verizon, and T-Mobile.
