LG K10 2017 review

 

If the price is right, the K10 could be a mid-range maestro

Fingerprint scanner ; Wide angle selfie snapper ; Removable battery

Design could be better ; Not the slickest interface

The K10 looks is a serviceable smartphone. It doesn’t do anything that really makes it standout, but it offers the features you’d want from a mid-to-low tier device in a package which is highly usable, if not a looker.

LG K10 review

 

A large LG phone that runs Android for a not-so-large price

Destined to be inexpensive ; Large 5.3-inch display ; Smooth arc glass design

Sticks with a 720p resolution ; Specs options may be limited ; Speaker is on the back cover

The LG K10 is shaping up to be a competitive budget phone that runs Android. While Motorola has impressed us the most before, this K Series entry for 2016 has a smoother design and rocks a large, 5.3-inch display.

LG K10 (2017) Smartphone Review

 

Power to the people. The LG K10 (2017) brings considerably more power than its predecessor and provides an even better quality casing. A polished performance for slightly over 200 Euros (~$217), but of course we will take a more careful look at the...

quality casing ; removable battery ; decent runtimes ; high performance ; NFC and USB-OTG ; current Android 7 ; sharp camera images

weak camera performance in low light ; average microphone quality ; squeaking speaker ; screen could be brighter

The LG K10 (2017) certainly managed one thing: it has clearly progressed compared to its predecessor. The casing became slimmer and more high quality, the battery lasts noticeably longer- even with more power under the hood. This power increase is so...

LG K10 Smartphone Review

 

Pitch-dark. LG's K10 wants to add style to the lower mid-range. Read why its screen and the camera's gloomy photos stand in its way in this report.

stylish and rigid casing ; good signal quality ; decent call quality ; decent black value ; stable viewing angles ; loud speaker ; useful battery life ; removable battery

slow and low-signal GPS ; dark camera photos ; moderate screen brightness ; extreme bluish tint ; below-category performance

LG's K10 is a pleasant to hold smartphone that delivers a solid performance in terms of call and signal quality, software, casing and battery life. No more and no less. Although that is not enough for outbreaks of enthusiasm, unlikely anyone will be...

LG K10

 

The LG K10 for MetroPCS is a relatively affordable Android phone with a nice build, but it's held back by underpowered hardware.

Relatively affordable. Attractive build. Expandable storage, removable battery, and NFC.

Dated processor. Mediocre camera. Heavy UI layer.

The LG K10 is a relatively affordable MetroPCS phone with a nice design and a decent display, but it comes up short everywhere else. For even less money, the ZTE Zmax Pro gets you a faster processor, more RAM, a sharper display, a better camera, longer...

LG K10 Smartphone Mini Review: Solid Specs on the Cheap

 

Consider the LG K10 if you are on a tight budget and can get it for less than $100, however, there are much better phones if you can spend up to $200.

LG K10 LTE

 

Beauty with some brains

Good looking ; Nice 720p display

Sub-par performance ; Average camera ; Expensive considering performance

The LG K10 is a good looking smartphone, but there’s little more that the phone offers. We find no reason to recommend this.

LG K10 LTE #ExpressReview: When style isn’t enough

 

LG K10 LTE, sure is a well-designed device, but does it perform well too? Read our full review.

LG K10 LTE, faces tough competition from players like and LeEco. Smartphones like Redmi Note 3, Le 1s and Coolpad Note 3 Lite offer better specs, including fingerprint scanner; and great camera and processor under Rs 15,000.
