based on the following sites

PROS

  • The camera is one of the best available in a smartphone. Bonus points go to LG for including manual controls for both photos and video.
  • The V10 is a sturdy device, which should help with the occasional drop.
  • A removable battery and microSD slot? Yes, please.

CONS

  • The V10 is priced higher than most Android devices we saw released in 2015.
  • LG's customizations to Android often get in the way and serve no real purpose.
  • The battery life for a device this size is disappointing.
The LG V10 features two screens. The first is a standard, 5.7-inch display for your normal smartphone needs. A secondary screen runs across the top of the device, where the small strip displays app icons and other notable morsels of information. A 16-megapixel camera sits on the back, while two 5-megapixel cameras--handy for wide-angle selfies--adorn the front of the device. A Snapdragon 808 processor powers the V10, accompanied by 4GB of memory, and 64GB of storage. The 3,000 milliamp-hour battery can use QuickCharge 2 for speedier charging.

So there you have it for this in-depth look at the LG V10! As LG intended, the V10 is a more powerful version of the LG G4 and offers a larger display, a unique secondary screen, a better and more durable build quality, a fingerprint scanner, and a camera that excels in video recording.

I’m not a lover of big phones, but if I’m ever to be converted, it will be by devices like the LG V10. This phone’s camera is more akin to a musical instrument than a mere image-capturing implement. There’s as much variety in what you can do with it as there is with the ways you can pull a guitar string. And the eventual outcome is typically just as organic and potentially just as artistic.

The feature-packed V10 is LG's best smartphone yet -- just be prepared to pay a premium for its selfie- and photo-friendly extras.

It’s easy to get overwhelmed by the V10 when you first pick it up, but the features that rise to the top make this a phone worth owning. I really like the durable design, excellent camera and manual mode for video recording.

The second screen isn’t a pointless gimmick, but it’s close, and no reason to actually choose the V10 over any other big phone. However, the camera absolutely is.

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.

And the Second Screen, while a bit distracting when it comes to notifications, allows for some interesting additions to LG's app layouts — but I wouldn't go so far as to say it revolutionizes the overall experience or anything. It's just sort of there.

The LG V10 is an intriguing phone, thanks to its sliver of a second screen at the top and dual front cameras. The real benefits are the removable battery, microSD slot and 4GB of RAM, but the design isn't refined and it's going to be pricey.

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.
