LG V10 is now official with a secondary screen, dual front-facing cameras and a manual mode for videos
LG has officially unveiled the first phone in its new V series, the LG V10. With a focus on the multimedia experience, LG has added a second screen above the main display. When the latter is off, this display will show the time, weather, date and the battery icon. When the main display is on, the second screen can be set to run shortcuts, or open your favorite apps. And the beauty of having the second screen is that you can receive notifications of phone calls or texts without interrupting that movie or video you're watching on the main display. The second screen can be "always on" without impacting your battery life.

The LG V10 also is equipped with dual 5MP front-facing cameras that allow you to snap a 120 degree wide angle selfie. LG uses a special algorithm to combine the images from the two lens, giving you the wide angle look without having to pan the camera from side to side. With this feature, LG V10 users will be able to throw away their selfie sticks. Thanks to Multi-View Recording, you can shoot a video from different vantage points at the same time, using the three cameras on the phone. You can decide later which shot you want to use in the final version of your video.

Speaking about videos, the LG V10 includes a manual mode for video, making it the first smartphone to do so. Now, you will be able to control the frame rate, shutter speed, white balance, ISO and focus. Videos can be shot in three resolutions, HD, FHD and UD. You can choose from the standard aspect ratio (16:9) or cinematic (21:9) for that movie theater feeling. The V10 also includes a Quick Video Editor to make some post-production edits, and a Wind-Noise filter for clearer audio.

The LG V10 features a 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. That works out to a 513ppi pixel density. The secondary screen measures 2.1-inches and has a 160 x 1040 resolution, also resulting in a 513ppi pixel density. The Snapdragon 808 chipset is under the hood, carrying a hexa-core CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 4GB of LPDDR3 RAM is inside, along with 64GB of internal memory. Those needing additional storage can turn to the 2TB capacity microSD slot that is on board.

With an aperture of f/1.8, the 16MP rear-facing camera allows users to take great shots in low-light conditions. OIS 2.0 is included. A 3000mAh removable battery keeps the generator humming, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed. The LG V10 measures 8.6mm thick, and weighs in at 192 grams. The handset brings support for 4G LTE-A (Cat.6),Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.1, NFC and USB 2.0.

The stainless steel frame of the phone will protect it from bumps and falls. A third party lab found the LG V10 to be "MIL-STD-810G Transit Drop Compliant," which means that you don't have to hold your breath every time it slips out of your hand. The Dura Skin covering protects your phone from scratches, while giving you a grippy material to hold on to.

The LG V10 will be available in Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Beige, Ocean Blue and Opal Blue, and will launch starting in Korea this month. It will also be offered in the United States, China and other markets in Asia, Latin America and the Middle East, with launch dates to be announced in the not too distant future. Pricing has not yet been revealed.

Samsung tried a phone with a ticker display once, ity was called the Samsung Galaxy Continuum. I had one and I liked the idea but I think it's biggest downfall was it was a Verizon exclusive. I really liked that phone....

The only problem with V10 is being too large and heavy
G4 is more compact.
Hopefully, this will have a longer battery life.

Very interesting device. I hope the ticker display works out better for LG than it did for Samsung... I wonder what carriers it will be supported on....

Ocean blue is an awesome color. Phone is beautiful. I love it that they get rid of aluminum. I wish if Nexus 6p was made of stainess steel. Now my list of potential purchase is increasing. 808 with 4gb Ram, everyone was saying before that 808 doesnt support 4gb Ram. Dual cameras should be on back. Anyway, a great phone from LG

Note 5 and 6s plus killer? They may have exynos and a9 chip but this LG V10 have better overall build and design compactness for me. What camera sensor does lg use time? Review this beast and I might buy this.

I think just about everyone uses Sony camera sensors anymore. I wonder what carriers will carry this...

Its probably safe to say over 90% Smartphones uses a Sony sensor. If not, an Omnivision one.

Omnivision has bigger pixel size in its cams... Why not omnivison? Nexus 6p is producing great pics due to its larger pixel size... Omnivision, if optimized properly, will give better results than sony

ofcourse, it did but it is 1.55 pixel size and bigger pixel proved good... so why not omnivision which has 3.55micron pixel size sensor...

The only thing I don't like with LG is their battery life. They should look into why their devices burns up more juice than competing devices with similar capacities. Improve efficiency and LG will be back on track to really compete.

I want to know how big is it. I've resigned myself to the fact that I need to go to a larger phone to get topline specs but I'm trying to find the smallest phablet.

Found it: Size: 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6mm

Bigger than it's 5.9" screen G Pro 2 at 157.9 x 81.9 x 8.3 mm!

58. fonelover123 (Posts: 153; Member since: 04 May 2015)


the screen of v10 is 5.7" main plus the .021" so all in all its 5.91"
the difference in height is just because v10 is more curved and that STAINLESS FRAME is a bit thicker

Smallest and lightest phablet is S6 edge + or galaxy A8 exynos version.

30. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 783; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


leaked dimensions of Lumia 950xl suggest 151.9mm hieght which is steller and sound false. But if true then the phone will be smaller than edge plus and A8.

With this two display implementation, I wish they had fit a much bigger battery inside this beautifully crafted phone. Like someone else said, I feel like the ticker should have been placed in the bottom especially if they expect us to use it for multitasking functionality - just to make it easier to reach. An interesting phone nevertheless...

I really like what LG is doing. They are still offering all the options any Samsung and Apple product lack this year like removable battery and expandable storage also that manual camera is a photo enthusiasts dream. I'm rooting for ya LG and may get one of these devices if things don't go right with Microsoft.

This looks to be a great phone , except the chipset everything else seems to be on the money. Manual mode in video also sounds great ( if implemented properly). And even for the chipset choice I am more inclined to blame Qualcomm than LG.

Hoping this phone is a worldwide release.

I feel exactly the opposite. This is the first phone of 2015 even worth considering. This one is nice--the others are so bad I worry what I would have to do if my existing phone broke. I don't like to compromise and everything else is a huge compromise.

This one apparently does lack a fingerprint scanner and IR, so it's not perfect, but it's far better than most the junk released in 2015.

Actually it does have a fingerprint scanner. Not sure about the IR blaster, though.

i really like the idea of having shortcuts always at reach. I mainly use 4 different apps all day long so saving me a second or 2 every time i want to switch would add up every single day.

Now the thing is I probably would never buy a LG phone, They don't really make me googly eyes, IF i am going spend $500 bucks for something that i use all day every day it needs to make me excited

31. medtxa (Posts: 1126; Member since: 02 Jun 2014)


There is an alternative to quick shortcut like gestures or sidebar... I just don't like that it become kind of useless bezel when you don't use it.

Why are people worrying about the chipset? The phones with SD 808 has already proved that it works absolutely perfectly! This is a great phone. Removable battery, SD card slot, 64GB built in, 4GB RAM and the best camera on board. It just cannot get any better. Thanks LG!

25. mixedfish (Posts: 1154; Member since: 17 Nov 2013)


The chipset has DDR3 RAM not DDR4 RAM, the 4gb in here isn't the same thing as the other phones.

27. gtrc11 (Posts: 32; Member since: 05 Feb 2015)


You have a point but honestly you need ddr4 on a cell phone right now? i think is a good device we don't need ddr4 or better graphics processor

posted on 01 Oct 2015, 00:21 4

32. DoggyDangerous (Posts: 783; Member since: 28 Aug 2015)


you wont notice any difference in graphic performance due to aggressive throttling of Adreno430 in sd810. 808 is better in sustained performace. Also, you wont notice any performance difference in ddr3 and ddr4 Ram in real life

35. medtxa (Posts: 1126; Member since: 02 Jun 2014)


Yep, you won't. you'd rather have better display(amoled) or better design.

Sexy phone. I love the dark blue color. Plus it has a Micro SD slot, that could edge it out from the Nexus 6P in my personal opinion.

But I want to hear the price and more about the camera performance before I make up my mind. Those could be deal-breakers.
