The V10 from LG is a unique phone that not only has a 5.7-inch QHD display, but also an always-on second screen above the main. The second screen provides a way for users to perform quick checks of things like weather, battery or time while the main display is off. The screen can also be used as an app launcher or for notifications.
The V10 is also sporting dual front-facing 5MP cameras, which LG says lets you take better wide angle selfies at up to 120 degrees. The rear camera comes in at 16MP f1.8, and includes OIS and wind noise filtering. The heart of the V10 holds a Snapdragon 808 SoC, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage (expandable to 2TB), NFC, fingerprint sensor and a 3000mAh removable battery. The V10 is stainless steel with a "resilient but soft Dura Skin" on the back and bottom of the phone. It's available in Space Black, Luxe White, Modern Beige, Ocean Blue, and Opal Blue versions.

Big phone is big
30 October 2015
The LG V10 is a bigger, beefier LG G4 with more camera features, a Second Screen and two front-facing cameras for dual-angle selfies. And it's not a bad phone by any stretch of the imagination. But it's really big, and really beefy.
Best built phone ever
24 November 2015
Every year, I make sure I get my hands on whatever great phones LG puts out. I like the things it tries — like back buttons or flexible screens — and the V10 had me excited to try a phone that's built like body armor. It does not disappoint in that regard.
But there is more to a smartphone than Duraskin and a steel rib cage.

The new hotness
30 September 2015
The LG V10 is the start of a new series of phones for LG, to live alongside its stored "G" brand of Android smartphone. The initial offering sports a 5.7-inch display, dual front-facing cameras, a secondary display next to them, and a rear fingerprint scanner and power button combination.

Forget what you think you know about dual displays on smartphones. Forget the failed attempts that have come before. This is the LG V10. It's a new product line for the Korean manufacturer, with a number of new features — and, yes, a secondary display that actually doesn't suck.
