I have been using this phone K430N for a month and here are my impressions:
-The device is really is nice-looking, with a reasonable screen-to-body ratio and 2.5D glass. It doesn't look like a low-end device.
-It has a very good display. 720p is the right resolution for this kind f phone. 1080p would be overkill. Plus, it has good contrast and colors are fairly accurate.
-Battery life is average, but acceptable. It can last for 1.5 or 2 days with moderate usage and up to half a day on heavy usage. Charge time sits between two and three hours.
-CPU performance is good and the UI is decently smooth with some isolated lags. But 1 GB of RAM may be a drawback. Plus, it takes a while to apps to be installed/updated.
-GPU is good por the price range and resolution. Casual games will run without hassle, but more demanding games will run with reduced graphics settings and lower fps, even at 720p. For example, I tried Angry Birds (casual) and Asphalt 8 (demanding) to test GPU performance.
-Camera is superb outdoors. Daylight pictures ar rich in detail, with high contrast. On cloudy days though, pictures tend to be a bit darker. Indoor pictures don't have the level of detail of outdoors and could be very dark to be usable. On the other hand, in low light conditions, pictures appear blurry and poor on detail (due to the relatively narrow aperture). LED flash helps to save more detail. Front camera is very good outdoors with plenty of detail, but indoors or in low light conditions, pictures are blurry and unusable. Gesture shot works, but it takes a while to get the hang of it. Personally, gesture shot in Samsung phones works better (I owned Grand Prime and A5 (2015) and gesture shot in both of them worked like a charm).
-Video quality is average but usable.
-Audio quality is good, clean and crisp, but the volume levels are nothing special.
In short, it's a good lower mid-range phone. It looks nice and peforms relatively nice. It will satisfy some users, but I reccomend to get the 2 GB version for those who like to multitask a lot.
Other phone with similar price is the Moto G4. It's a bit pricier but you get a larger battery, 1080p display, a more powerful chipset, better camera and stock Android. There is also the Lenovo K5, which is somewhat similar to Moto G4 and at the same price, and the omnipresent Xiaomi Redmi Note 3 (Helio X10 version), which is a bit pricer but offers a lot more bang for the buck. The Galaxy J5 (2016) coulld be an option, with superior build quality, a marginally sharper screen and a larger battery.
By the way, I got the Mediatek version with 1 GB of RAM and I pleased with it. Only hanged once, but never happened again.
Sanjeewa, 13 Jul 2016Look lg company** hey i have lg k10 k430dsy lte model.its not show any apps move sd card. So t... moreI dont think you can move apps on the SD even on some other phone brands. That's why having a large internal phone memory is important.
This is the best phone in this price range,l have this phone almost a month and l have no complains at all.lt is fast,camera rear and front are good,battery can hold two days, my recommendation for all who wants a very good phone in this price range
[deleted post]i am not samsung fan!
well in fact i have LG K10!
ik how j7 2016 camera is fast...
but ofcourse if you don't use MicroSD
LG K10 is faster than j7&5 (2016)
They should've released an SD430 version as well, it'd have been perfect.
AnonD-556579, 04 Jul 2016This phone is horrible. It reboots at random and takes forever to charge. Using the charger th... more2.1 amp usb charger plug or if you can find one of 3.1 amp usb charger plug... Then be sure to have a good cable...
In my opinion:
1. Camera is not good when i shot at nite, very noise not like 8mP or 13mp.. My camera lg 7 ii dual better than lg k10.
2. Battery very improvident, i only use for browsing article or social media (not gaming) it will consumpt more 25% for 30 minutes..
Iam very frustrated...
I hope LG can fix it.. Trims

Look lg company** hey i have lg k10 k430dsy lte model.its not show any apps move sd card. So too much problem. I try android 6 store apps.it not complete. Plz i need fast reply lg company. I need update or any reply.
just bought this phone just because i love its design (even though there are many better options for the price). So far it's exeed my expectation in term of performance, feels pretty snappy overall and can handle pretty much every game i tried. My only complain is the lack of feature and options in the camera, still can produce some decent photos though. Mine has an octa core (MT6753) processor with 2GB of ram and came with Android 6.0 by default.
Why when taking a photo its completely blurry? Not a clear picture at all! Is anyone facing this problem?
