I wonder if the Hi-Fi DAC / AMP had turned on during the audio test with headphone.
The volume should be much higher, at least much higher than Ip6+ in my experience.
Although it was supposed that the AMP be turned on automatically every time when you plug the headphone , however it is not....
Very often when I plug in the headphone but the volume is low, then it meant the AMP is not turned on - even the interface showed that it is ON but actually it is OFF!!! I have to turn it Off & On again to activate the Hi-Fi DAC / AMP.
Can anybody form GSMARENA can reply for that? - ensure 100% that the Hi-Fi DAC / AMP was turned ON ? ( must be manually turn on after plugging in the headphone, if not, it can't be ensured 100%)
Dodo, 02 Nov 2015Only issue for me is the fingerprint sensor being on the back. I understand it's cheaper for L... moreImo the back is the best place to have it, I hate the extra bezel cauaed by having the reader on the front..
Look at the new HTC A9, it just looks stupid to have a the fingerprint reader on the front, and then software buttons above it
the question is .. where can i buy that keyboard ?? looks cool ....
@GSMarena, what are the feature that you guys look for in mobile phones fro Advantage and Disadvantage? Set standard and should point out as such features on every phone. Your disadvantage and advantage for any phone review is rubbish!
Rugged phone that's not waterproof and small battery only make the phone uselessy heavy. A phone no one ask.
Honestly, I'm disappointed to see how high the noise ratios are when headphones are plugged in, not to mention the addition of that slight bass hump
Audio Quality is the one of the reasons I as an avid AudioPhile enjoy the ESS Sabre dac chip sets, but to see... a rather poor implementation of it... is disappointing :/
The... decent audio quality aside. Everything else is great about the phone! I've enjoyed both the dual camera's an the overall performance of the device! The second screen is imo brilliant! I'm a bit torn about jumping into a different device [for better overall audio quality] simply because I'd lose that second screen
though Honestly, the LG Offer makes this the phone to own! You get TWO batteries an a 200GB Sandisk SD card! LG really making it easy to own this device :D
Give me a 6+" screen, dual speakers, Apple A9 and at least 4,000 mAh battery and maybe.
I would have liked to see how call reception is, seeing as it's a phone. I live in the country with poor reception, and my Note 3 has always had issues with reception while other phones didn't have that issue nearly as bad. I'd like to know how well it will work making calls and sending texts.
"Nothing spectacular when you consider the screen was at a modest 100 nits (well below average)."
High ppi cancer.
Anonymous, 02 Nov 2015Actually the front would look nicer if this scanner is on the back.The reason the fingerprint sensor is on the back is because it's considerably cheaper to manufacture this way. There is a reason why cheap phones have it on the back and flagships spend the money to integrate it on the front.
As to convenience and looks, most of the time people unlock their phones while they are sitting on a surface, or in a car - thus the front scanner on pricier phones.
I personally wouldn't even look at the V10 because of the back end scanner. But let's see how sales go...
Everything is pretty cool with LG. They just need to do better on battery performance.
1. European models are required to come with headphones.
2. Complaining about battery life when you can swap the battery and go 0-100 is an epic fail.
This phone is really nice. . I think LG is the only major smartphone manufacturer which keeps on doing something new in each and every phones. . Their signature back buttons, double tap to wake, laser autofocus system (IR) etc are very well received and many manufacturers are adding these things to their phones. . This time again something new with dual display dual camera. . .
That 2nd screen seems great, for me the selfie 2nd camera is just as useless as the 1st selfie camera which is as useless as a selfie and it goes on until can't be more useless.
Make a smaller version and it can be my next phone. Love the looks, LG has some personality on their phones, I like it a lot.
But seriously, 32 bit DAC?? Number wars gone audio now... serioulsy, 24 bits allows 144 db dynamic range, seen no content with noise floor bellow 120 db ever. and no having 32 doesn't make the audio any better to your ears or even a dog, if it even does difference mathematically since you'll have to find a 32 bit audio stream. Let alone the fact that the dynamic range was at 93 db so 16 would do it.... the hell is happening here?
Appreciate the WAY better than average earphones provided.
