Why does the EU handset come with earbuds but the US version doesn't? Lame.
AnonD-391909, 02 Nov 2015The v10 does have fm radio, and btw it also records in 1080p 60fps as YouTube videos of the ph... moreYeah, the v10 can change the fps and the bitrate too.
The review is good though.
Needs fix in the video camera area.
One big problem with the LG phones and their tiny bezels is that you can't use a case along with a tempered glass screen protector, as there is no room for them. The case ends up pushing on the tempered glass.
Interesting, According to audio graph, V10 is cuts frequencies above 16 kHz.
Strange behavior for a Hi-Fi Device.
I just picked up this phone for TMO. The phone is great. Only negative is the battery life but how can you complain when LG is giving you an extra battery, 200gb micro sd and charging cradle for free. Best deal on the market v
its an excelent phone only reason that i dont want t buy a 5.9 phone is that it wil crack much easy .... but in what i see on youtube tis is the most rezistent phone ..... so yeah ! from now on bigger --- better if it is so rezistent !!! no doubt my lovely next phone ! ! ! beautyful . clever . rgged !!! bravo LG !
Thank you for the review.
V10 is a step into the good direction. Better than other Cos., but the size, weight and battery life is the reason that I won't buy it.
LG, please bring us a 5" + second+display phone with 3000mah removable battery + SD + 820 chip.
Basically if you like to shoot video then this is the handset for you.
Great honest review! I think you must have done a mistake in the audio part though. Your findings disagree with audio reviews in audiophile websites and forums. Are you sure you were testing with the ESS on?
Hopefully we'll see s 5" SD820 version in Q1. That would almost certainly be my next phone, as long as they keep the swappable battery/microSD card. I'd _really_ love for them to add wireless charging & USB Type-C, though.
That's one really encouraging review. Totally satisfied. My only gripes with V-10 are that why and how they couldn't put a bigger battery in such a huge body when Huawei could fix a large battery in overall thinner and smaller Nexus 6P? Also, omission of FM Radio is a bummer too when they are talking so much about sound and music (before talking about online music streaming apps, please do note that the place where I live, internet is still very costly and signals are sick, and I just prefer FM Radio over any other Music streaming app). The height is a bit of a killer too, but not by much considering its merely 0.3 mm taller than Nexus 6P.
Most surprising fact is that at no point GSMArena, not even LG has claimed anything about that self-healing Dura Skin. Yes, you heard it right. Its almost the same idea as LG G Flex, i.e, if by mistake you scratch the back of your V-10, it will start healing in almost 10 minutes, and minor scratches will disappear completely in 10-12 hours. That's seriously a HUUUGE selling and buying point for me. I wonder why LG didn't talk about it at all?
Sorry GSMArena, my bad. Just read this line, and got my answer.
"There's no FM radio though, huh."
Dodo, 02 Nov 2015Only issue for me is the fingerprint sensor being on the back. I understand it's cheaper for L... moreI love the fingerprint scanner being on the back. it goes right to where my index finger naturally lands when I puck up the phone. If I am not picking up I can just use my knock knock code.
I agree with you, Samsung, HTC and Apple are the only well-known manufacturers who decided to put the fingerprint scanners at the front doubling as home button. We all know the patent issues between these three manufacturers one trying to copy the other one and versa. Leaving the sensible answer why they have all the same fingerprint scanner placements. in the other hand LG made a very intuitive fingerprint scanner placement at the back, deny it or not try to pick up your phone and observe the location of your index finger it is simply sitting pretty stable around the parameter where the LG's fingerprint scanner is located compared to how you do it with the front placements which you are exerting more effort to reach the home button and then repositioning your hands after doing so to navigate the screen. Fingerprint scanner at the back is really not a big downfall many manufacturers followed what LG did originally with their handsets and millions of users find it convenient. Really no debate on that field.
KinG, 02 Nov 2015Great phone, would buy it immediately if it was 5" screen and 130g. But come on, 5,7" and 192g... moreI was concerned about the weight and size as well. I literally have it in my hand right now, and the weight is not at all an issue. In fact, it is basically the same weight as my LG G3 when the G3 is on a case (I am going "naked" on the V10). It feels very flat and thin, but very premium and substantial.
It's about time it was on sale in the UK. It's been released over a month now.
