LG's late year flagship, the LG V10, boasts rare and unique features and an elegant, rugged design. The second screen kicks notifications into overdrive, so much more informative than a notification light. It also boosts multitasking, but only if you hold the large, 192g phone with both hands.
The main screen is pretty impressive too, a refinement of the LG G4 screen with improved contrast. The battery life was nothing spectacular though, on the plus side keeping the second screen always on didn’t have a major impact.
The LG V10 has the most advanced photography department we've seen yet. We've played with our fair share of PureViews, but the manual controls – especially for video – available on the V10 are unmatched. The mic directionality and ability to use a wireless Bluetooth mic are a boon for budding videographers.
The selfie craze is reaching fever pitch with dual selfie cams. Instead of 3D or refocus fads, these are for the social aspects – the second 120° lens lets you get so many more of your friends in the shot.
LG's latest heavy hitter has numerous hardware protections against shocks, enough to earn it a military-grade certification. It has a rigid stainless steel frame with silicone bumpers to absorb shocks and a dual glass solution on the front.
Like HTC recent offering (the One A9), the LG V10 picks the more modest chipset – Snapdragon 808. Having seen water cooling solutions for the S810 from Microsoft, there are no excuses from LG for using the lesser-powered chipset.
Still, the pricing is great – cheaper than the Galaxy S6 edge+ and if you snag an LG V10 in the US by the November 15 you get a 200GB microSD card (the V10 has a slot for it, yay!), a second battery plus a charging cradle for it.
So, what say you: LG V10, hot or not?

Same here. Left Note 3 for V10. I use Battery Doctor. I use it to turn off all unnecessary apps. I have notice that V10 does get very hot. I don't know if it is due to the thin plastic back cover,the way it vents the heat or my protective might be bl...
