LG V10 is built to withstand rough handling – you may think of it as LG’s answer to the Samsung S6 Active. It features what its maker calls the ‘Dura Guard frame,’ made of high-grade stainless steel of the same quality as that used for surgical tools and in top-end watches.
The phone’s rear and display base are decked out in silicon to offer extra protection against damage from drops. The 8.9mm device has passed military-grade testing for shock in independent testing, according to LG.
The screen setup on the LG V10 is innovative in that you are presented with two displays. There is a massive 5.7-inch sdisplay with Quad HD (2560 x 1440 pixels) resolution, and above that is a tiny 2.1-inch screen with a resolution of 160 x 1040 pixels.
The second screen is always on by default, showing you notifications as well as providing quick access to contacts and apps. With a pixel density of 513 ppi, both IPS Quantum screens should deliver awesome clarity.
Another way of looking at the LG V10 is as the Galaxy S6 Edge+, but with edge screen moved to the top.
Another main talking point is in the camera department. LG V10 packs in two 5-megapixel front-facing cameras for selfies. One of the snappers has a standard 80-degree lens, while the second boasts a wider-angle 120-degree lens. You have found a perfect tool in this one if you are the type that cannot just stop taking selfies.
The phablet also rocks an LG G4-type 16-megapixel shooter with F1.8 aperture and optical image stabilisation (OIS) 2.0. It can be used to record stunning 4K videos and supports a manual video mode for pro-quality videos.
Processor and Other Specs

The handset runs on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop operating system and has juice supplied for it by a replaceable 3000mAh battery. It supports super-fast 4G LTE connectivity. LG V10 features a fingerprint sensor and dedicated Hi-Fi audio chip.
