Reviews for the LG V10

Technical twin. The configuration of LG's V10 reminds us strongly of the G4. The South Korean company has equipped the handset with a second screen and an additional front-facing lens. Discover whether the surcharge is justified in this report.
An attractive and functional high-end device
Source: Laptop Media English
LG is famous for its rich in functions UI and its absolutely brilliant manifestation in the V10 was not a surprise to us. Its great functionality is further supplemented by several pre-installed apps. The performance of the phone is also quite high because of the Snapdragon 808 which is quite powerful and does not heat excessively the construction, even after a long stress test. A drawback that can be mentioned is the not so acceptable battery performance, despite the capacity of 3000mAh. There are no remarks as far as cameras are concerned, and this applies not only for the rear 16MP one, but also to the two front-facing cameras allowing you to take group selfies. In addition you get some manual settings.

Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge vs LG V10

If you ever wanted to see the importance of good hardware design, you need to look no further than this comparison between the Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge and the LG V10. The two are diametrically opposed in terms of looks: it really is a story of the beauty and the beast, where the Galaxy S7 Edge, with its extremely elegant and solid build, fits well in the hand and is a joy to use, while the LG V10, with its rough materials and overly big dimensions, feels very crude and unfinished. This makes a big difference in daily use.

The LG V10 promised to deliver something different and it succeeded with its 2.1-inch sliver of a second screen at the top and two selfie cameras right next to it. Annoyingly timed notifications no longer get in the way as you try to focus on Google Maps or watch a YouTube video thanks to this always-on ticker display. It also acts as glanceable spot for time and date checks and frequently used app shortcuts.

A perfect time to strike then. The LG V10 brings fresh energy and starts a new family line. The V series stands for practicality, durability, and innovation. It's shock proof to a military standard. It's not waterproof like the Xperias, but it's a difference as small as the difference between 'every day' and 'vacation time.'

Moreover, it's awkwardly timed. Unless you bought the V10 right when it arrived in midfall, you're probably better off waiting to see if the G5 gives you some of the features (a fingerprint reader and manual video controls seem like shoo-ins) on top of CPU and camera upgrades.

If you are to embark on snowy adventures and you intend to use your smartphone as the designated camera - then any of these high-profile smartphones will do the job quite well. If you are pixel peeping, you may find few pros and cons on each, but at the end of the day, none of this will matter when sharing on social networks as they downsize the images anyway.

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 vs LG V10! As mentioned, for most users, the choice between the two will be easy, based primarily on design and build quality. The Galaxy Note 5 features the sleeker and more elegant design, the arguably better display, and those looking for productivity will love the S-Pen and all its capabilities. On the flip side, if durability is a concern, the LG V10 is the device for you, and features like expandable storage and a removable battery are big positives as well.

And all things considered, it’s one of the few smartphones left with a removable battery and a microSD card to support up to 2TB of expandable storage. Although the V10 is not quite the perfect ten, it’s still a pretty darn good phone and an admirable effort by LG to bring something new to this predictably boring clone phone market. Keep doing you, LG. Stay strange.

Overall, the LG V10 is quite an incredible phone. In fact, it wouldn’t be too far fetched to say that it’s amongst the best Android phones currently available. The second screen on top is unique, functional and fun to use. LG has stated that the Marshmallow update will be available early in the new year which should make the phone even better.

88% LG V10 review: upping the ante
Source: Pocketnow English
The story of the V10 is a basic LG smartphone — with a removable back cover and battery, microSD expansion and a ton of screen acreage, it’s a great canvas to expand upon — and instead of adding on curves and leather, it’s replaced with armor, a toolbelt and more control. Style’s been put away for silicon. UI software tweaks have been passed up for camera software tweaks. And there’s obviously one extra camera on the V10 that isn’t on the G4. This phone has been underrated and downplayed since when we first heard of it, mostly because we’ve considered it to be a niche phone.

LG describes its new V Series of phones as an “experience creator” and “new alternative” in the high-end smartphone market. Indeed, the V10 is unique in a number of regards with its dual screens, two front-facing cameras, real-time manual video mode, and very durable construction. Indeed, these unique features make the phone fun to use, a pleasure to hold and beautiful to look at.

In the past, Android manufacturers would include strange gimmicks to set their phones apart. We look back at those times with rose-colored glasses, but it’s never as good as we remember. All of those weird gimmicks were there to hide flaws and make phones seem more exciting. The V10 is good enough that it doesn’t need any gimmicks. There are a lot of reasons why someone should buy this phone, and the Second Screen is not one of them. Buy this phone for the great camera. Buy it for the big display. Buy it for the battery life. Buy it because you like textured things that feel good in your hand. The Second Screen is like the toy that comes in a Happy Meal. You’re glad you got it, but the main event is the cheeseburger and fries.

Well, does the V10 with all of its stuff and things come together as a winner? Yeah, surprisingly, for the most part there is a heck of a lot like here. This is one of those extremely oversized phones, but it comes in an attractive package, has a beautiful display, top of the line specs in all areas, and performs well. It has a capable camera, handful of actually useful software and hardware add-ons, and can be purchased at most of the major carriers. I really don’t think you can go wrong here.

LG's swanky V10 is so chock-full of features, it's hard to know where to start. This Android handset packs a novel second screen and dual front cameras, as well as a fingerprint sensor on its back and advanced manual mode for video recording. All this comes wrapped up in a handsome, hardy frame that can resist drops; it sells for $600 (full price at T-Mobile, $700 at Verizon and AT&T). It may not be the fastest phone on the block, but the LG V10 doesn't disappoint.

Do you need all of these features? Of course not. But while several other major smartphone manufacturers appear to be moving in toward a smartphone design singularity, LG continues to attempt to be really, truly creative. And unlike past releases, they're making certain you'll be able to experience their creativity as this device launches on all three of the top carriers in the USA: Verizon, AT&T, and T-Mobile USA.

The LG V10 is an attractive, durable phone with great specs (save for the chipset), it comes with useful feature you can't find anywhere else and LG didn't overprice the phone (like Sony and HTC often do). We feel that the company will move many units, though some murmurs from South Korea suggest the market's reaction is different. Regardless, LG made a great phone and deserves a win.

Source: Phone Arena English
There are undeniable benefits in having a specs sheet as lengthy as the household chores list your partner unexpectedly hands you on a Saturday morning, but the question we should always keep asking is this: are all of these features integrated wisely, or are they confusing, compromising the experience? Furthermore, do they work as advertised? To these questions, the answer is rarely a firm yes with the V10. There are certain areas where it excels, such as performance and still image quality, but it tends to falter in others, like display quality, video recording, and general user experience seamlessness: the unstable camera app, inaccurate auto-brightness function and inefficient app design are just some of the issues we encountered.

We're pleased that LG has decided to bring it to the UK though. We've been told that it will be viewed as a different line to the G4 and therefore gives another premium offering. We don't have a release date or pricing at the moment, but will bring you those when available.

Comment

Model: The LG V10 looks stylish and futuristic and can definitely handle any mobile applications with strong specifications. Its durability is first class with its stainless steel frame and silicone bumpers providing excellent shock resistance. The LG V10 has a military standard certification for the transit drop test and a dual-layer glass display to protect against direct impact. The back cover is nicely textured and works well in tandem to the curved back for good ergonomics. There are 5 colors to choose from; space black, luxe white, modern beige, ocean blue and opal blue. Display on the LG V10 is a 5.7 inch Quad HD IPS LCD panel is protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 4 and delivers beautiful colors and high brightness.

The smartphone comes with a Snapdragon 808 chipset that includes a Cortex-A53 and Cortex-A57 processor, 4 GB of RAM, an Adreno 418 GPU and 64 GB internal storage. LG has skipped from utilizing the Snapdragon 810 to avoid overheating issues; a well known issue in many smart phones utilizing it. On-board is a 16 MP, laser auto-focus rear camera and a 5 MP front camera. Other features on the LG V10 are Bluetooth 4.1, A-GPS, NFC, an infrared port and microUSB 2.0. The battery life on this incredibly powerful smartphone is provided by an impressive 3000 mAh lithium ion battery.

Qualcomm Adreno 418: Integrated graphics card that supports OpenGL ES 3.1 and DirectX 11 Feature Level 11_1 (with hardware tessellation). Compared to the Adreno 420, the performance of the 418 is about 20 percent slower (at 600 MHz). Non demanding games should be playable with these graphics cards. » Further information can be found in our Comparison of Mobile Graphics Cards and the corresponding Benchmark List.
808 MSM8992:

High-end ARM SoC with 6 CPU cores (2x Cortex-A57 and 4x Cortex-A53) and an Adreno 418 GPU. Manufactured in a 20 nm HPM process.

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.
