Where would we be without our smartphones? They seem to fulfill every need we have in life from personal to business. With the competition being fierce between all of the manufacturers they are all trying to stand out above the rest. LG launched their new smartphone, the LG V10, and found a way to do exactly that.
The LG V10 stands out and takes Android to the next level.
About The LG V10
The LG V10 features a 5.7-inch QHD display, but part of what stands out has to do with the display. Above the normal display that we’re familiar with, there is a separate banner screen. This banner screen displays weather, time, battery life, and even can display apps you always use, even when the normal display is off.
The dual front facing cameras are 5MP each and allows for wide angle shots. The back camera is 16MP and comes with OIS and wind noise filtering capabilities taking video captures to the next level. Inside there is a Snapdragon 808 SoC, 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. While some specs are on par with other flagship smartphones, the second banner display and camera set the LG V10 above the rest.
Features that Stand Out
The banner display is the first thing most new users will notice on the LG V10. Having everything that’s important to you easily at the ready makes life easier. This can be tailored to your own desires too which we love.
Dual Front Facing Cameras
The dual front-facing cameras allow for wide angle selfies that come out great and can include more people or scenery in the photo.

There is another feature called “Snap” and it’s pretty fun to use. Snap takes short clips that last three seconds long, then combines them to make a 60-second long video. This is truly one of our favorite features allowing users to capture everyday moments in a whole new way.
LG impressed everyone with their camera features on the LG G4 and those same features are here in the V10 with better quality results. Take amazing photos on auto, or grow your photography skills in manual mode. The photo quality is quite phenomenal.
The LG V10 has a steel frame and encased in what LG calls “Dura Skin”. Dura-Skin is made up of a rubber-like material and allows you to easily grip the device and reduce the feeling of it slipping from your hands.
The LG V10 is a full centimeter taller than the G4, so it is definitely a bit heavier. The fit is very natural in the hand but the size is something that some may want to test to ensure it meets personal style.
The LG V10 brings new features to the market and gives other Android phones a run for their money. The second screen is very useful as is the banner display, especially if you’re a multi-tasker. The camera is very powerful for a smartphone camera similar to the LG G4 camera and the steel and rubber build make for a very durable device. The power lasts longer thanks to not having to turn on the main display as often and the phone itself feels solid and comfortable in the hand. As with most larger phones, the size may take some getting used to for some, but this is a short lived issue. Most Android devices will have a Type-C USB so it would have been nice to see that on such a well made phone like the LG V10.
