Poll results: LG V10 is packed with novelties, are you getting one?
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.

The ones who said No are sammy's and ifans ofcourse. Who else would actually say no to this phone? But i really hope this phone the price is reasonable, i.e. 500$

it's not a question of being fan of another brand. I also want one, but it's really huge and i'm not a fan of huge phones and the price is also important. it's not clear yet when or if it will be available in Europe and even then i'd want to test it in a store and "feel" it first in my hands - so while i'd like one for the specs, i'm not sure if i'll get one.

I agree. I wish the V10 was G2 sized. But, the LG V10 is the best phone of 2015 !!!!!

The G4 was $630 at launch so I doubt it.

SN808 is reason enough to say no to this device, smart buyers will wait this out, if they have to buy now the only devices that are future proof are using Exynos 7420. I know many don't care about performance, but for those that do SN808 and SN810 devices are simply not an option.

No it's a gimmick phone, they go on about manual video controls, yet they didn't bother with an ND filter or exchangeable lenses or anything like that. So basically you have things like shutter speed control, oh wait you cannot use it because you cannot change how much light is coming into the sensor.

if your arguement is correct then all other phones are gimmick too there's no ND filter or exchangeable lenses on any phone as of now and yeah how can you control how much light is coming into the sensor on other phones?

They're not advertising as some master manual video control phone.

Anybody with basic photography knowledge knows that shutter and aperture is how you control light coming to the sensor. If you can manually control these, then you can control the light to the sensor. If you can control ISO, then you can also control how much sensitive the sensor in receiving light can be.

Shocky - SDN 808 has been proved well enough. Its the the best but the best option available than the hot potato SDN 810. LG can neither use mediatek nor exynos or there own chipset for now. Im using the G4 H818P and its runinng absolutely smoothly. Slanmagge - I couldn't stop laughing at your comment seriously. Interchangeable lens? Are you ***ed in the head?

not the best chipset*

Proved? really? is that why SN808 devices struggle in certain games at full resolution? Yes, I've tried the new Moto X and I was not impressed. Is that also why LG cheat by lowering the rendering quality to try and improve performance? Is that also why in 3dmark the framerate for Exynos 7420 devices is twice as high as LG G4 even with the rendering quality lowered?

I have a Galaxy S6 And i love every bit of it, apart from the crappy battery life, but who cares it's always connected to the charger wired or wireless! but this LG is a phone that samsung has to take a very hard and god look at it! i mean i don't care if my phone is a little bit thicker not to mention the battery and expandable memory, but the innovation (second screen), new features and materials are things that are from NOKIA era which are gone these days... thank you LG!
