LG K10 Review: Price Specs Pros and Cons

Mid range Smartphone is most picked segment in India as most of people generally hit this segment and this time LG also played card with two Smartphone LG K10 and LG K7. Many LG fans waiting for LG K10 and Company launched this phone nearly about 13750 INR. As i think this price is not justifies as handset is offering quite mediocre features like 5.3 inches IPS LCD display, Snapdragon 410 Quad-core processor, 13 MP and 5 MP camera, 16 GB internal and 32 GB External SD card support , 2 GB RAM and 2300 mAh Battery.

Design of the Smartphone
This handset is really attracting with 2.5D Arc Glass design crafted to perfection with a sleek, glossy pebble design causing comfortable grip with a delightful feel. Although it’s not like metallic built as most phone of this range still it manage to look like premium, plastic feels rigid and compact.  The headphones jack and Micro-USB port are placed at the bottom, and the power and volume buttons are placed on the back.
HD Display Phone has ordinary kind of display, although it is quite sharp with resolution of 720x1280 and 277ppi display density. Photos and text looks coherent in screen. The display is able to manage wide viewing angles. There is nothing special to say about display it is just passable. Thanks to LG at least they have providing Corning Gorilla Glass 3.

Camera and Selfie
LG included a 13MP primary shooter and 5MP secondary cam, 13MP rear camera is capable to capture fine photos in sufficient light with pretty good clarity but this camera also failed to capture details in low light. In lack of light the photos comes out noisy. 5MP camera has nearly same case but still performing above average for better selfies company providing a front flashlight that can be helpful.

We are not happy to see an outdated chipset Snapdragon 410 in the K10 LTE K420DS (Indian version) with Quad-core processor and 1.2 GHz clock speed, it’s not outdated but now such CPU configuration is just for entry level phones. Handset is quite smooth while performing only with pre-installed apps. Although heavy games start lagging in handset. 

Battery Backup
Phone has 2300 mAh battery for the power source which seems low for a phone with 5.3’ display. If you are not a heavy user its backup can easily extended up to one full day.

Why to buy and Final words about LG K10

We are happy to see a mid range Smartphone from the LG but same time we are disappointed to see its launching price tag as the specs are not up to that price standard (13750 INR). This phone has Great design with quality plastic, slightly better than average camera and battery. Performance is not a problem till you load this handset with lots of Apps, Games and other kind of media. We are expecting the price fall of handset near about 10K after few days of launching; then this handset will be fine for its customer as there are already lots of good handset in market offering better specs in lesser price such as Motorola Moto G Turbo, and Xiaomi Redmi Note 3
