LG debuted the V10 handset a few weeks ago, with the hope of impressing everyone with its unique features, like that extra screen above the main one and the dual front cameras. Apparently they didn’t quite manage to make a lasting impression, since the sales are lower than expected.
We’re talking about the first week of sales and the device didn’t perform well. It’s competing with the likes of Galaxy Note 5 and iPhone 6s Plus after all, which are premium models. Data from market research firm ATLAS Research & Consulting shows that on October 22nd the LG V10 didn’t make it to the top 10 list of domestic smartphone sales in South Korea.
The V10 was ranked 15th in its first week of sales, while the Galaxy Note 5 was on first spot. Other devices, like the Galaxy S6 and the lower end Galaxy A5 or Galaxy Grand Max also remained in the top 10. V10 also has the theoretical advantage of a lower price of $615, which for a premium device is important. I’ll remind you that this LG phone has 4 GB of RAM, a 5.7 inch Quad HD screen, a 16 megapixel camera and a 3000 mAh battery.
It also brings HiFi audio and a Dura Guard case, ready to face drops on the floor.
