Oh Canada! You're not getting the LG V10

Oh Canada! You're not getting the LG V10
If you live in Canada and was hoping to pick up the LG V10, there is some bad news from LG. The manufacturer released a statement today, telling Canadians that there are no plans to bring the V10 to the country. LG recommends instead, that Canadian smartphone buyers turn to the LG G4. LG released the statement in response to an inquiry about when the phone would be available in Canada.

The LG V10 features a 5.7-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. Above the display is a second 2.1-inch screen used for notifications, time, date and weather. With the resolution of the extra screen at 160 x 1040, both the main screen and the secondary one each have a pixel density of 513ppi. A Snapdragon 808 chipset is under the hood, carrying a hexa-core 1.8GHz CPU and the Adreno 418 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside, along with 64GB of internal memory. A 2TB capacity microSD slot is available for those who need more storage. The rear-facing 16MP camera includes OIS, and there is a dual camera set up in the front with one lens taking wide-angle selfies. A 3000mAh replaceable battery keeps the lights on, and Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.


LG hasn't given an explanation why it isn't taking the LG V10's talents north of the border. As the manufacturer says, Canadians who must have a high-end LG handset can go with the LG G4 instead.

No they don't. They have the G4, but no V10.

I have the V10 and I like it SO much more than the G4, so I would consider it a loss. And I'm not even a fan of LG. I was an HTC fanboy until they dropped the ball, and my last phone was the Moto X. I was going to buy a new one, but the V10 really is an awesome phone.

Its their loss anyway. Probably would have done bad in sales with the dollar so low.

That's a real shame...it really is an excellent handset.

The reason better be that LG is about to release a G5 with the 820, 4G of RAM, fingerprint scanner, removable battery, and microSD with a G3 size.

I hope not. I liked the G4 because it had modest and practical features. Finger print scanner is a waste of real estate, and snapdragon can't control their temperature.

But the V10's fingerprint scanner is integrated into the power button, therefore wasting no space? The G5 can surely have a similar or even improved version. We also have yet to see how the 820 reacts temperature wise.

G3 size...oh lord let that be true! I doubt that tho! If I were to guess, the release of the G5 will come before the G7 drops, or, at least the same time the G4 dropped.

You skipped LG this year because you somehow knew they wouldn't bring their brand new flagship phablet (as opposed to their flagship G series which has several iterations by now) to Canada? That's interesting. How long ago did you get your iPhone?

Basically sounds like he's trying to justify buying an iphone.

Agreed. And compared to the V10, the iPhone really doesn't stand up well. My girlfriend has the 6s Plus and she wants my V10. It does so much more, and the camera is better. I'm not really a fan of LG phones, but they nailed this one.

I wanted a lighter phone this year,no aharp corners,good battary life,timely updates, after the stagefright virus hitting android along with people still finding ways to rood android marshmellow i decided to try an iphone, the iphones very organized zipy, and still retaines most of its value 2 years later. samsung and Nexus devices are the only devices i was awaire of that updated their devices when the stagefright hit.

Nice handset. Like that it still has features Samsung dropped from their devices, including the IR Blaster, MicroSD Card Slot, Removable Battery, etc....but not really tempted to buy one, so, no loss.

Nobody is going to be buying a G4 at full price in Canada with the V10 out in the U.S. They just hurt their reputation in Canada and people will be taking their money elsewhere.

I hate to say it but it's not surprising really. Canada is sheep territory and one of the biggest population of Apple victims.

Why ? Because they can't make it for all countries since this one as the G4, G Flex 2, G3 is made in Korea and production line is busy...all flagship is made in Korea guys. Wait for the no longer of the G3 to get the G5. In 4/5months...
