LG V10 Pros
Build Quality and Decent Screen: When I first held the V10 in my hand, I was really impressed with the build quality and the screen. The 5.7 QHD display is great enough to fall in love with at the first look.
Camera: LG G4 showed us how great a camera phone can be, and LG V10 continuous to impress us. While the rear camera is exactly the same as the LG G4’s camera, the front camera comes with a dual-lens (dual front cameras) to capture selfies with wider angles. And don’t forget about the manual settings, speed and of course the quality.
Fingerprint Sensor: The fingerprint sensor is integ rated with the power button and located at the back of the V10. It is fast, accurate and can handle locking some of you content along with locking your phone. Since an Android Marshmallow update is on the way, we should expect more security related features to come.
Second Screen: The functionality of the second screen is still limited to some notifications and quick access to system settings. But it really is helpful and gets some stuff done faster.
Removable Battery: While battery life is still a major issue and power banks are hard to carry everywhere, isn’t it great to carry a spare battery and replace it with the out-of-charge one? These days, it’s not easy to find a feature phone with the removable battery option.
Expandable Storage: And you don’t have to stick with the internal storage for ever. Thanks to the new Marshmallow feature, you can also set your External Storage as your primary storage
LG V10 Cons
It’s Big and Heavy: Remember my first impression about the build quality and look? Well, my second impression came about 30 seconds after holding this big phablet. Believe me, it really is big, heavy and hard to hold for longer times.
Software: First of all, it doesn’t come with Android Marshmallow out of the box. Second the LG launcher is far from being a perfect interface and I even felt some lags when using this 4GB-RAM phone.
Fingerprint: The phone won’t unlock when the screen is off. It means you first need to turn on the screen and then scan your finger to unlock your phone. And since the fingerprint sensor is located at the back, you cannot unlock it while it is on your desk. The second problem gets really annoying when you use your phone on your desk.
So, are you going to buy an LG V10? Do you it is worth the money? or You are think of other better options?
