We’ve been waiting for the LG V10 to come our way for a looong time now and I can’t believe it’s finally here. This big phablet is sort of like a bigger brother to the LG G4 and it serves its purpose greatly: being original and giving the Note 5 a run for the money. It came last fall, in time to compete with the S6 Edge+ and it’s priced at $520 now.
The device gets unboxed below and the box is interesting, in that it opens up like a book. Inside you’ll find the handset, charger, USB cable, manual and a set of Quad Beat 3 headphones, that look badass and are tuned by acoustic masters of AKG. The device itself is a work of wonder, as it’s both shock resistant and it packs a dual selfie camera and dual screen.
So, above the 5.7 inch Quad HD main screen we can find an extra 2.1 inch 160 x 1040 pixel display. It shows notifications, weather, battery status and more info. The phone adopts a Dura Guard chassis, that is based on stainless steel and relies on something called Dura Skin, that’s an elastic material, resilient to scratches. The dual front camera involves two 5 MP units, one of them with a 120 degree wide selfie camera.
Inside the smartphone we find a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 32 or 64 GB of storage and a microSD card slot. The back camera is a 16 MP unit with OIS and laser focus. We’ll be back with a full review of this piece of work very soon. You can find its updated price here.
