LG V10 is an interesting smartphone to say the least. On the inside, things remain mostly unchanged when compared to current flagship G4, but on the outside LG is using more premium material, 2 selfie cameras and 2 screens!
Just above the 5.7 Inch QHD display panel, there rests a second screen, which will can be ‘always on’ without being harsh on the battery. There are number of things you can showcase there with the main display off, but when the primary display is on, the screen mirrors app shortcuts, which can be used for efficient app switching. This is something that makes a lot of sense to us.
Another peculiarity here is the presence of dual cameras on the front side. To justify the decision, LG states that a wide angle lens comes with compromises. Two camera’s with standard 80 degree angle lens would work better. The LG Camera software will stitch the two images post-clicking, and this should result in wider, clearer and distortion free selfies.
There are some video recording tweaks too. LG has added a pro mode for video recording, which implies you can adjust white balance, exposure, ISO, shutter speed and even shoot in cinematic 21:9 aspect ratio. There is a multi-view recording feature as well, which simultaneously fires both front and rear cameras, and might be fun to use in some rare cases.
A fingerprint sensor has also been integrated with the rear key design. The rear camera and most other hardware remains same as that on LG G4, which is a good thing. The 3000 mAh battery under the hood supports fast charging. Take a look at complete hardware specs and product video below.
