LG K10 LTE Review, Advantage and Disadvantage

author photo 20.4.16

Ok friends, Now we will inform you about LG K10 LTE Review, Advantage and Disadvantage. LG is going after the entry-level segment of the market with the introduction of its new K-series of budget phones. The LG K10 LTE and LG K7 LTE are the first devices in this line, and were first announced just before CES 2016, where we managed to get some hands-on time with them.

As you can see, there isn't exactly a shortage of options here and each of these smartphones is a good pick in its own right. Can LG's new offering carve out a nice for itself in such a crowded space? Let's find out.

Look and feel
The glossy pebble design of the K10 LTE is the first thing that grabs your attention. There are no sharp lines here as the curved frame blends seamlessly into the textured back cover, with no semblance of an edge. With its rounded design, the phone still sits comfortably in your palm. The phone also feels incredibly light, even at 142g with its battery in. The K10 LTE gets a 5.3-inch HD in-cell display which produces relatively crisp text and images. The protective glass isn't scratch-proof so LG has preinstalled a screen guard on the phone. However, this doesn't cover the entire front face all the way to the edges, and ends up being quite an eyesore. Colours are pretty vivid and the display is quite legible, even under direct sunlight. The phone is a bit slow to react to changing ambient light, and when it does, the transition can be jerky. There's also no notification LED.

The headphones socket and Micro-USB port are placed at the bottom, and the power and volume buttons are placed on the back, in LG's signature style. We found the volume buttons a bit on the softer side due to which we accidentally pressed them many times when commuting. The texture of the rear cover offers good grip without looking tacky. In fact, we can safely say that the LG K10 LTE is one of best looking budget plastic phones on the market. Our indigo review unit looked really good, but you can opt for white or gold instead if you prefer.

The K10 LTE ships with a 4.2W charger, USB cable, headset, and flip case. The case has a translucent vertical strip on the edge, which lets you see basic notifications, the weather, battery life, and the time and date. The quality of the case is strictly okay, but the other accessories feel more durable.

Specifications and software
LG has created multiple variants of the phone for different markets. The K10 LTE is powered by a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 SoC and has 2GB of RAM. Despite being a bit old, it is a capable processor, but is outclassed by the Snapdragon 615 or 616. There's 16GB of internal storage, which can be expanded by up to 32GB via the dedicated microSD card slot. 
The phone supports 4G only for SIM 1. SIM 2 only supports up to 3G data speeds. Hot-swapping SIM cards isn't possible, so if you eject one or insert a secondary SIM, you'll have to reboot the phone. Other specifications include Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.1, FM radio, and GPS. There's no fingerprint sensor, NFC, or USB OTG support. it is Using Android Marshmallow (5.1).

UI-Thanks to the light UI, we usually had about 1.4GB of free RAM available for apps. General performance was good although we did notice slight lag intermittently when jumping between apps or when pulling down the notifications shade. We had no trouble with 4G performance or call quality for that matter. The stock LG keyboard is comfortable to use too. The flip cover adds a bit of bulk, but without it, the K10 LTE fits very easily into a pocket, which is something we really liked. One-handed use is not the possible all the time since there's a fair bit of plastic around the screen.
Video and Audio. The K10 LTE managed to play high-bitrate video files well, though not all audio codecs are supported. Even with MX Player, we were unable to play the AC3 audio in our test files. The music player does support FLAC but there aren't any equalizer presets for tweaking the audio. The bundled headset is good for voice calls but just about alright for media playback. Also, the earbuds don't have a very comfortable fit. The rear speaker is fairly loud for alerts, but again, not great for media.
Camera. The K10 LTE features a 13-megapixel rear camera and a 5-megapixel front camera. The rear camera captures acceptable landscapes and macros in daylight. Focusing and saving images is a little slow, and gets slower in low light. The level of detail and accuracy of colours in macro shots are much better than in landscapes under good lighting, but images and video taken in low light exhibit a lot of noise as the level of detail dips. This is very evident when you zoom in to pictures. The front camera does a decent job with selfies, even indoors. 
You don't get anything extra in terms of settings or shooting modes. There are options for a timer, and voice or gesture triggers for taking selfies. However, there aren't any filters, HDR, or even a panorama mode. This makes it difficult to capture wide landscapes, or if you want to get decent photos when shooting against the light. 

Battery life
The 2300mAh battery in the K10 LTE lasted for 10 hours and 24 minutes in our video test, which is quite good considering its capacity. Charging the phone can require a long wait since there's no quick charging support. It will only get up to only around 16 percent in half an hour. While this isn't exactly speedy by today's standards, the good news is that the battery doesn't drain all that quickly with regular use. We easily managed to go more than a day with a bit of 4G and Wi-Fi usage. (http://gadgets.ndtv.com/mobiles/reviews/lg-k10-lte-review-825135)
