LG has just revealed how many LG V10 units it has shipped in the first 45 days of commercial availability in the United States, and from the looks of it, the newest LG phablet is a hit among the younger generation in the country.
LG says that it was able to sell (not ship) 450,000 LG V10 units in 45 days. While this number doesn't break any records, it's a sign that US customers display interest towards the dual-screen phablet. The manufacturer also said that more than a third (37 percent) of LG V10 buyers are between 25 and 35 years of age and that the main driver behind the V10's popularity among this demographic is the phone's ability to easily capture and share video content. Furthermore, LG's press release says that the V10 is also popular among white collar workers in big cities.
If you're looking for a detailed analysis of the phablet, head on over to our full LG V10 review. On the other hand, if you're just looking to refresh your memory, the most interesting thing about the LG V10 is that the phablet features two displays: a primary 5.7-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels as well as a secondary 2.1-inch display. The latter is always on and serves to show information such as the time, battery level, and weather prognosis at a glance.
Other specs include a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, a 16MP primary camera with OIS and manual settings (both for stills and videos), and a 5MP dual-lens secondary shooter on the front.
What do you guys think? Are you surprised to learn that LG sold about half a million LG V10 units in 45 days of commercial availability in the US?

Nice, I'm glad that many others got to enjoy this well-made handset as well. Enjoying my free battery, cradle, and SD card. Haven't had to actually charge the phone itself since.

I agree. And they probably could have sold a lot more. In NYC, I had to go to three different T-Mobile stores to get one. And the store I bought one, I snagged the last one. Especially awesome with the 200gig card and extra battery.

Can't say I'm surprised considering the idea of dual displays was a brilliant one and the implementation (or shall I say execution?) is just about right. Great precision with more emphasis on practicality and end user experience (as opposed to 'Gimmicks' i.e Curved Displays for example)... Just wish LG now make something with a 4.0" main display and around 1.0" secondary display as to make it more wieldy... Last but not least: Atta Boy!

A curved display isn't a gimmick. It's a unique and beautiful design. The optional options for the curved part is a bit gimmicky, but the design itself is awesome.

It's a gimmick but it's a really nice looking gimmick so it sells. Not sure why anyone with any technical knowledge would knowingly pay extra to have the image distorted, or have weird colour shifting and light reflections from the curved edges. But they do!! Genius move by Samsung.

V10 is indeed a beautiful phone just like g4. The only deal breaker for me from buying them is the big display. But congrats to lg, 450000 units sold is a big step considering America is already saturated with apple and samsung advertisements.

I wanted V10, but it is very large. I hope they will make G5 with the same design and less bezels

When you look at it as a phone with a 6" display, it's still compact. Seeing as how the ticker display is actually part of the main display, it can practically be considered a 6" screen, except for the space the front cameras occupy.

big display is not a deal breaker for... infact it is a deal maker. But big size with small screen is a deal breaker... my vivo xplay 3s is slightly small with 6inch display. So the over all size of v10 is useless for me... otherwise it is a beautiful phone... atleast it doesnt have cheap aluminium

Lg is always copying samsung ideas and making them better, the samsung edge displays are not as functional as lg's second display. Another one is the s view case vs lg quick window case, same idea but you can do a lot more with the lg case
