Reviews for the LG K10 2017

81% LG K10 (2017) Smartphone Review | Notebookcheck
Power to the people. The LG K10 (2017) brings considerably more power than its predecessor and provides an even better quality casing. A polished performance for slightly over 200 Euros (~$217), but of course we will take a more careful look at the smartphone in the test.
LG K10 (2017) review: Wait… what’s new?
Source: The Indian Express English
LG K10 (2017)is hard to recommend given there are a lot better options in the same price range. For Rs 13,000, you can easily get a bigger battery, Full HD display, and definitely a better design (that’s subjective though) in a smartphone. For instance, there’s Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Moto G5, Lenovo Vibe K5 Note or even Honor 6X that offers a dual rear camera setup means that for LG K10, convincing potential buyers will be very hard.

At R3 899 the LG K10 doesn’t break the bank, but ultimately left me unconvinced. The wide-angle front facing camera and Android Nougat are not enough to make it a certain pick from the midrange bowl. The real killer for me was the K10’s underwhelming HD screen (720 x 1280), which if it was Full HD could have had me rooting for it. Ultimately, if you can spend a bit more you will find better midrange offerings.

LG K10 2017 First Impression: Isn't impressive!
Source: The Mobile Indian English
To conclude, the LG K10 2017 has a compact and sleek design coupled with some above average display and has an advantage of running on Android 7.0 Nougat. However, looking at the sheer specs sheet, the device falls flat when compared to the likes of Xiaomi Redmi Note 4, Coolpad Cool 1, Honor 6X, which offers superior performance, coupled with some premium design language.

Hands on: LG K10 2017 review
Source: Techradar English
The LG K10 looks to be a serviceable smartphone. It doesn’t do anything that really makes it standout, but it offers all the features you’d want from a mid-to-low tier device in a package which is highly usable, if not a looker.

Comment

Model: The LG K10 (2017) may not be a flagship phone but it does have some interesting features worth mentioning. It boasts a curved elemental design, which sees it being more curvaceous on its corners. Its curves are complemented with the smooth edges of 2.5D Arc glass and this makes the K10 pleasant to the grip. It is mostly plastic built with a metallic border finish. This gives the K10 an added touch towards a more premium feel. The choices of colors available are gold, black and titanium. It is powered by a 1.5 GHz MediaTek MT6750 octa core processor with 2 GB of RAM. The K10 generally runs smoothly without noticeable sluggishness. It is perfect for web surfing , social networking and watching videos. However, it may not be suitable for running demanding games or software. The integration of a fingerprint sensor is a fine addition to the K10 as it is after all a mid-range phone. This increases the security of the smartphone and its content. Furthermore, it is upgraded with Quick Shutter and Quick Capture features. This means that the fingerprint sensor doubles up as a button for snapping shots. LG seems game on winning the hearts of shutterbugs with this smartphone as it is enhanced with features for capturing best moments.

For optics, the K10 is fitted with a 13 MP rear facing camera with a large 1/3" sensor and an ultra-bright F2.2 lens. This allows images to be captured with clarity even under low light condition. Furthermore, its 5 MP front-facing camera has an ultra-wide 120 degree field of view which allows users to cram in more buddies to their selfies. The photo quality on the other hand is not good enough mainly due to its low resolution camera. Switching between this wide view and a normal portrait mode is easily executed with the touch of a button. Selfie shots can also be effortlessly captured with the integrated Auto Shot function. A Quick Share button is available on its preview window to allow users to share pictures and videos fast and easily. Display-wise, it comes with an HD (1280x720) display, which is bright and clear. Another notable feature of the K10 is its removable 2,800 mAh battery which is rare on smartphones these days. The 16 GB storage available is rather limited yet easily expandable with a microSD slot. Overall, the K10 offers good performance, camera quality, and features at a mid-range price point. It will be interesting to see how the K10 goes up against its similarly priced Chinese rivals. Chinese phones tend to have better specs compared to the LG K10.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
