LG K10 Review

LG K10 looks like a smartphone smart and compact design. Is absent any sort of valuable material, however the forms are beveled and touch & feel returned is with high levels. On the front there is a large glass panel that seems to wrap the back housing, by virtue of technology 2, 5 d Arc Glass, by which it was created.

Curved screen edges, just has a front-facing camera, various ambient light and proximity sensors and a speaker for audio input. Are absent the soft-keys: are replaced by classic Android screen buttons.

The back is separated from the front glass with a thin plastic Board and consists of a removable body to which has been applied a particular texture. Thanks to the latter and to rounded shapes, the grip is noteworthy. From the shell you can gain access to the battery and the only room for inserting a nano-SIM.

Find space, well received, a back camera with a LED flash mono-tone and, at the low end, a speaker audio. The latter, thanks to the rounded shapes of the K10, is not likely to be obstructed when the smartphone is resting on a flat surface, as is often the case with other models.

As has become standard practice, LG has entered the power button and the volume rocker on the back housing, next to the camera. With a terminal size after all contained as this, paradoxically, to reach those buttons found inconvenient.

For this reason the side frame remains essentially free, except for the bottom, which houses the micro USB 2.0, microphone 3.5 mm jack for voice and. At the top, a second microphone for noise cancellation.

Overall, the K10 is very compact and lightweight (142 grams), especially when compared to the top of the range of the moment. Is slightly thicker, though: 8.8 mm.

LG K10 comes with a 5.3-inch IPS good display with HD resolution (1280 × 720) and a pixel density of 277 ppi. Not one of the best displays in circulation as to definition, but does the same on his work.

The brightness is at a good level: in direct sunlight, the behavior is good, but you can’t say the same regarding the ambient light sensor, which is struggling in the transition from low light to the most “lit”.

However the viewing angle is good and black is very deep. Finally, we note that there is no entry settings that allows you to adjust the setting of the white.

LG K10 has two cameras: a 13 megapixel rear and a front-facing 5 megapixel camera. Both, unfortunately, mediocre, and you really have to be taking shots at the click to get sufficient results.

As regards the rear camera, in particular, behaves discreetly in well lit areas: details are captured well and light management is good. As for night shots, though, the flash does not perform its task. However the presence of digital noise is minimal.

Even the front camera can give its best at night: the photos are poorly defined and characterized by much ADO at the margins. LG has tried to address the lack of a flash front LED by software; that helps reduce the size of the preview taken leaving, on the sides of the screen, a large portion of white, which does, in fact, act as a flash. In good light situations, the results are sufficient.

The videos are the norm: LG Full HD 1080 p footage at 30 makes K10 fps, unfortunately without any kind of stabilization.

LG K10 comes out of the box with Android 5.1.1 Lollipop installed. This is not stock Android, but a customized version from LG but there is no distortion. We are witnessing, rather, a genuine revival graph: change virtually all the icons and style and toggle have been added on the home screen, quick shortcuts to particular setting items.

LG has submitted only one application owner with the task of facilitating the backup while the remainder relied entirely to Google suite, denying to LG K10 even a stock browser.

As for power, here is the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset 410 1.2 GHz Quad Core Cortex-A53, with 1.5 GB of RAM to support. The ROM is expandable via microSD 16 GB, few but. It brings benefits.

The system is fluid and overall runs discreetly. The breaks are few and your RAM is handled well. Chrome and social handle well scrolling without too many uncertainties. With regard to heavy video games from the graphic point of view, the smartphone can run them without major problems if you give up the details.

Custom keyboard is noteworthy from LG which, although very small keys, succeeds perfectly in its intent.

As regards the experience called, is good as the receiving (comes in two versions, one of which LTE).

The battery has a capacity of 2300 mAh: the numbers seem against him but, as it turns out, the system is well optimized because it manages to get through the day without having to recharge.

LG K10 is a smartphone by the performance more than good that you keep in a price range palatable to most. Suffers from some defect for which cannot compete with the top of its range, but for those without too many pretensions can be an option to consider.

Finally the price: LG K10 is offered to € 229.90 but, not long after his release, are already available on the Web different offers, which can make it quite palatable.
