LG sold 450,000 V10 units in the US in 45 days of commercial availability

LG sold 450,000 V10 units in the US in 45 days of commercial availability

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.

Good job lg!!

450k in 45 days is not very good at all, it might be an improvement for LG but overall it's really poor and I doubt they're happy with these sales.

Two words: terrible phone.

In your opinion.

Another word, overrated.

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.

If only LG can come up with a unique design like the s6 or M9.....

But they already have their own distinct LG design.

Yeah, they definitely have their own design and it's one of the best imo. I love the more square shape of LG devices vs my rectangular Note 5 and the rear buttons are awesome.

Signature designs are for reducing cost and marketing the brand, if the can do well without a signature design I don't see the advantage to the consumer

while everyone is copying apple, LG is actually designing something different... their devices are distinct, and i hope they remain so. Proud owner of a G3 here.

Lg in my opinion makes the best screen to body ratio yet includes sd card and battery replacement options. ALso the phones are more developer friendly.

You mean the same S6 which looks like an iPhone (including getting rid of removable battery and microSD slot) which itself apparently took inspiration from HTC?

V10 is a great phone from LG after long time..

Good. Glad for LG. Seems like a well-liked device.

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.

Gimmick claims are 100% subjective. What I find useful to me might not always be useful to another.

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.

Note Edge is not Gimmick. Oh, wait. It is Samsung, not Nexus or others. You are right, it is gimmick.

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

20. natypes

Posts: 1110; Member since: Feb 02, 2015

How much smaller do you want the bezels? They are already ridiculously small.

23. Hexa-core

Posts: 2131; Member since: Aug 11, 2015

Large? 5.9" is great size for me!!

26. DoggyDangerous

Posts: 1028; Member since: Aug 28, 2015

bezels are small but the over all size of the phone is humongous due to ticker display. I will rather like the phone with 5.7inch without a ticker display

33. TheWeasel

Posts: 403; Member since: Dec 26, 2014

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
