LG V10 could revolutionize the mobile display as we know it. In a marketplace populated with top quality phablets like iPhone 6s Plus or Nexus 6P, LG V10 stands apart from the rest by providing extended storage space, a detachable battery and the additional screen that cannot be found on the other devices.
It also has probably the best mobile camera you can purchase and it is a better choice than LG G4, however the poor battery power and extreme bloat ware stop it from true flagship status. Stainless-steel pieces sit on both parts of the device, with a distinctive panel on its rear.
The volume and power control buttons are found under the back-facing camera, just where the index finger is resting. The power key also works as a fingerprint-scanning sensor, since there are no controllers on the sides of the gadget.
You do not need to look for the keys to manage the volume and this can make its big size a bit easier to use. LG V10 satisfies the MIL-STD norms for resilience and it can survive average falls from 4’ without any problem, even if you would not see it enduring the shocks of the Droid Turbo.
It is also not water resistant, so even if it can be dropped, it does not have to get wet. Similar to the previous LG G4 model, the V10 sports a detachable battery and the slot for microSD cards for expandable memory.
When you take off its rear cover, you are able to simply replace its battery power and increase the storage to 200GB. This is a function that is disappearing from flagship phones these days and it is awesome to see, particularly on a device that is concentrated on taking quality images and videos.
Lastly, there is also the IR Blaster, enabling you to manage your TV and set-top system. The frontal part of the gadget homes the 5.7 LCD display with a 2,560×1,440 resolution. Small text is readable under direct sunlight, having top color reproduction with great viewing angles.
In the upper right area of the LG V10 is a second 2.1” screen running at 1,040×160. It functions individually from the main screen beneath it, showing quick-launch buttons for various applications, display notices, favorite numbers, scheduled activities and media controlling.
The small sized additional screen makes the LG V10 look like an original phone, more than other gadgets people have seen since Samsung’s S6 edge+ and its rounded edge display. The second display allows users to see notices even when the primary display is off, offering quick access to the phone’s camera and configurations.
Right now, it is more of a marketing trick than a really practical feature. Users still have to start and open the main screen to have interaction with the rest of the functions, so you are not saving a lot of battery power.
But the prospective options are there for higher performances, like if the phone could connect into other applications and offer you up-dates on sports activities, when a program is coming or display the distance you have ran, for example.
