LG V10. Just LPDDR3-RAM but 4 GB.
A perfectly robust and gripped back design.
The camera is placed in the middle for symmetry, but the corner would be better.
The laser auto focus blaster could also be used for distance measurement with third-party applications. That could be very useful.
But their camera-application is a dream. It uses that second screen very well, and has many features. It might not be the fastest, and the burst shots are limited to thirty, but you can set framerate and bitrate and video resolution INDEPENDENT from each other. Every power-user dreams about that. Bitrate settings were possible previously on the Galaxy Note Two on Samsung, which was in 2012. There were quiality settings of low, middle and high. Low 1080p-video was equal to high 720p-video. Both were around 12 megabits per second. The V10 has no 5.1-Microphone, but the pro-mode displays the audio input from both microphones and gives you full control about photos and videos, which makes one feel like a real professional user. Additionally, pausing is supported in all modes (even slow motion), and it might be limited to 120fps, and there is no zero pause lag (known from Nokia 108, Samsung GT-i8000 and TouchWiz Camera v5.0 and higher), but I am looking forward to 2160p@60fps on phones in 2017. With 1440p@120fps, you can slow down to half, and yet have sixty frames per seconds TO SPARE. With ¼, you have 30fps instead of 15fps to spare. 15fps is the grey zone of enjoyability of videos.
A physical shutter key is missing, (it could be used by applications such as games too, but would make shooting more convinient), but it has tap-to-shoot. Something, which Samsung removed in 2015 on their S6.
There is no way to launch the camera quickly with a physical shutter button, but the secondary screen can be used in a very similar way as the toolbox from the S5 and the Alpha, and the Edge-Screen of the .
3000 mAh for such a power-user-phone might be slightly too low. The iPhone 2g was tvelve millemetres thick, and nobody had a problem with that. With that thickness, the V11 or V15 or V16 or V20 might achieve 6400 mAh (according to my calculations).
Maybe, Samsung and LG could build together the ultimate power user phone, which contains the feature range from all phones. All sensors, all hardware, all features, and all capabilities, as long as it is possible. And maybe some additions (e.g. Dual IR blaster and reciever for 3D-aiming) and maybe a sligh optical zoom, if there are no external moving parts and other problems, ugly compromises(,) with camera hardware.

dj, 17 Aug 2016I sure do own a lg v10 and have been have issues.

I have LG V10,when I open my lock screen, suddenly I find some errors.I don't use many applications I just have a few like Instagram and such it,some body help me please.
This is by far one of the best phones I have owned. Before owning the lgv10 I owned the S4. the v10 blows the s4 away. I liked the s4 for everyday uses. but the v10 really helps with photos, the camera is amazing and takes great photo's. The option to shoot raw is amazing and comes in handy during the winter when it snows. By far a great phone i look forward to the V20.

Anonymous, 08 Aug 2016phone is trash phone froze on me and now turns on at the lg screen and freezes and called tech... moreYour are the first and only person to say this is a weak phone, and I was he'd dozens of reviews by people who do lots of phone Re iews(experienced and reputable individuals).
There is a lot more to a phone than gaming and I suppose that is what you are after choose a Samsung but that will be the only real world area you will notice any speed advantage.
The V10 is a multitasking monster and makes good use of its 4Gb ram as opposed to Samsung with terrible ram management, to the point where the V10 is dramatically faster than the S6 in multitasking. Certainly more noticeable than the Soc performance.
The real question should be why Samsung has any ram when they shut down apps constantly requiring annoying lags in performance.
This ram on the V10 helps maximize it's 2nd screen feature accessing other apps without leaving their main screen, making calls or playing music. Also makes use of their excellent dual screen and floating windows Q Slide features taking full advantage of its large screen.
Clearly you have not used the phone.
This thing k8cks Ass. I was checking out stand alone daps costing up to thousands, many maxing out at 24bit players. I like many am a big music fan and demand quality sound, the V10 delivers with a ESS Sabre dac/amp 32bit producing audiophile quality, that destroys it's competition. Funny how cameras get all the attention when I see far more people listening to music. Oh and the camera, well, it is common knowledge this has the best manual camera in existence.
These are all pretty major features plus it can actually record 4k video without running out of memory ala Samsung. Thats ridiculous.
