LG V10 goes on sale for the lowest price so far: get it for just $260
posted by Victor H. / Dec 21, 2016, 6:57 AM
The LG V10 was one of the best phones of last year: a big, 5.7" phone with a focus on a refined camera experience and plenty of manual camera controls, it was a worthy alternative to the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 at the time. It was also the first LG phone to come with the experimental secondary ticker screen that you could fill up with shortcuts.
The LG V10 debuted at the price of a true flagship: the recommended full retail price stood at a whopping $700, but just a year after its launch, you can already find the V10 at a huge discount.
This current deal is probably the biggest deal on the LG V10 to date: you can now get the LG V10 for just $260, a whole $440 off the original price. In comparison, other devices of the same caliber like the Apple iPhone 6s Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 5 have only lost a small fraction of their original cost.
If you like a bigger phone and don't mind the rough design of the LG V10, you are getting a true steal: at $260, the V10 is one of the most powerful affordable phones you can get at the moment. Keep in mind that the deal is valid for 4 more days.
- Display 5.7" 1440 x 2560 pixels
- Camera 16 MP / 5 MP front
- Processor Qualcomm Snapdragon 808, Hexa-core, 1800 MHz
- Storage 64 GB + microSDXC
- Battery 3000 mAh(12h 3G talk time)

It's a really good price for a really good phone. This though is why it's insanity to buy an LG flagship on release.

"This though is why it's insanity to buy an LG flagship on release." I disagree. People buy flagship phones on the day of release to show support for the brand they like... There's nothing insane about that. Just because LG's flagships down in price by ~half after a year doesn't make it insanity to purchase it at launch.

Great phone! Horrible longevity; I'm on my 3rd V10 after bootloop issues on the first 2. If you get this phone, get it though carrier and get insurance. Also, backup and take pictures directly to sd card. All LG phones of recent have had bootloop issues since LG hasn't gotten their act together on motherboard implementation.

I just did a quick research and found the LG phones have many quality issues in general.

You mean bootloob! True there's some issues with LG's phone in general, I used the V10 for a week then sold it due to laggy performance and lower brightness even tho I do prefer IPS over Super Amoled.

I owned the G3 and G4, nothing but problems with the screen.

I would stay as far as I can from any LG product from now on. Bought this exact phone 6 months ago. Thought was a nice phone and good buy despite the occasional overheating, short battery life and slow performance. One day it just restarted by itself while being idle and went into the bootloop, which apparently is a common flaw for LG phone, not just this model, even the V20 is not immune. The real cause may very well be design and hardware related as people have been able to start it up in the very low or high temperature environment so they can back up their data. So be aware before you take this risk.

Yep - I wouldn't buy any LG phone until they fix the bootloop issue that has plagued all their flagship phone back to the G3 to the V10 (Ave there was a reported V20 bootlooped V20 that LG attributes to a defective USB cord... Sure!). One G4 and two V10's died... Never again!
