I really like the LG G4, Specially the Lather version, but snapdragon 808 is quietly disappointing, some mid-top phone like Xiaomi 4c now have this chipset.
for same money you can get Samsung Galaxy S6 with a mighty chipset & a bit weaker camera,
i think LG must forget snapdragon 808-810 family & only use 820 (when Ready!) or another CPU family like Helio X10, (that have no heating issue!)
Like all flagships when first released are well over priced.get the priceing right on launch date then Bob ya Uncle !
Of course. Even Note5 is more cheaper than V10. Wanted to buy V10 but is almost RM4k in Malaysia while Note5 just RM2.5k. Don't waste time create phone that so expensive.
Ramouz, 24 Oct 2015Lol, this phone is excellent. Snapdragon 808 has nothing to do with why it's not selling.
It... moreS808 is actually an issue. This V10 not really seen improvement over G4.
S808 is good enough for general usage and most games but not heavy 3D games like Iron man 3. It can't compete withave Samsung Exynos 7420 on the performance part.
I know it pretty well as my previous two phone is S6 Edge and G4. Now using Note5.
Grey1213, 24 Oct 2015Lg doesn't really stand out or offer anything unique. Snapdragon 808 isn't helping.Will buy it as soon as it is released here in India.
kakouille, 24 Oct 2015but.....but.....but....sdcards,removable batteries.... looooool!!!!!!!!!!!Well, South Korean are very forward thinking. They ditch the idea of having sd card and removable battery ever since S6 came around. That why iphones sells like crazy over there. It helps Samsung very well with their new smartphone that has no sd card and unremovable battery concept. LG is still stubborn with their old outdated style phone. Everything is in the cloud now. For a country that have 99% LTE coverage it is weird for LG still emphasizing sd card. And the carrier offering this type of coverage is no other than LG U-plus, which is themselves. Weird.
Everybody is so Apple and Samsung oriented that they make all the competition struggle. That means that I can buy my favourite brand on the cheap;)
Bec LG have bad design. Low specs compared to Samsung products in same price range. So people would prefer Samsung over LG. They need to design a very attractive phone with specs suitable to price they ask
This phone is 1 of the most well designed devices ever made but the weak Snapdragon 808 is the main problem, swap it with the Snapdragon 820 and you'll be the KING
I wanted to buy V10 instead of Note5 (and i'm a long time Note user), but Note5 is very cheap now, you can get it for 520eur! I really doubt that V10 will be able to compete with that when it becomes available here.
Oh.. and 808 is not helping at all.
The G4 is a fantastic phone..but the price is too high for an sd808 processor!!! That's the problem
Ramouz, 24 Oct 2015Lol, this phone is excellent. Snapdragon 808 has nothing to do with why it's not selling. It... moreI fear size may be the problem. They seem to neglect the fact that some people have smaller hands and I'm not being gender biased here but women are the main subject of that comment and they're cutting out 50% of the market and they're phones are even styled a bit too masucline if you ask me. It's why the iPhone and S6 will out do them everytime.
It has to have at least one top spec and has nothing that you can't get on any other device, you can even get Android phones like Sonim that will replace the phone if it breaks.
This was the same reason why nokia feared android adaption. The premium segment in android not doing good since the rise of budget phone makers like xiamoni , Huawei and Lenovo etc. People who want to buy premium phones prefers apple since you know why. Look at galaxy s6 edge it's the best all rounder phone out there but its sales weren't able to surpass s4,s3. Premium phones specs are available at budget that's what keeping android premium phones to sell

It's not selling because they released a G4 a few months back and most people have already bought that. I feel the same, I bought a G4 and then they release a premium version so why would I switch when I just spent money? Probably many feel the same. Which is why companies need to stick to only a few phones a year, one flagship, not 2 in under 5 months.
Also, the phone should have been 5.5" max. I'd love a G2 sized V10 though (5.2 in).
