LG went all-out with its new and unique V10
handset, just as promised
. Apart from the Snapdragon 808 chipset, it is stuffed to the gills with the latest and greatest in smartphone technology, such as a big 5.7" Quad HD display, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB storage, and a 16 MP main camera with OIS. We can understand why LG went with the 808, as it's still plenty powerful for anything thrown at it, and doesn't have the heat-dissipation issues that would arise with an 810. LG, however, more than compensates by offering a replaceable battery and a microSD card slot - things that are on the list of disappearing species with other major cell phone makers.
Those goodies above were just a start for LG, though, as it also adds a secondary, 2.1" screen in the front, for your date/time, notifications, message preview, and favorite app shortcuts to be displayed at all times. As if a unique dual-screen setup is not enough, LG also doubled down on the front-facing cameras, too, providing a 5MP Dual Lens (80 degree / 120 degree wide angle) camera in the front, for those all-important selfies to be taken wild and "groufie" even without a stick. To top it all off, the V10's frame is made of surgical steel, while the Dura Skin cover cushions any drops up to a MIL-STD-810F standard
Oh, did we mention the 32-bit sound with dedicated ESS convertor, and the tri-mic directional setup that allows adjusting the sound while recording a video in manual mode. Well, the V10 has those, and comes in many intriguing colors, so there is only one question we wanted to ask you last week, are you getting it? Lo and behold, a lot of you are - while some will be waiting on the actual price and possibly the first reviews, 36% are enticed from the get-go.
