LG V10: One Front Camera Isn’t Enough?!

LG V10

LG have never been known for producing the best looking phones, but they rather focus on functionality. This time, they have done something that will fuel the egocentricity of the entire selfie generation – putting two front cameras!


The Features

First thing first: the design. I don’t really understand the idea of the design of the back of the LG V10. In any case, the phone has a DuraSkin coating which provides a really soft touch, making the device durable. Also, the device is certified for shock resistance.

The LG V10 has a 5.7″ screen with a pixel density of 515 PPI. It is a sharp display which enables to see well even outside.

The back camera of the phone is a 16-megapixel camera. And now for the interesting part. The LG V10 doesn’t have one, but two 5-megapixel cameras. One is with an 80-degree lens, and the other one is with 120-degree wide angle lens.

The LG V10 uses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 with 4GB of RAM. Check out the full specifications bellow!

The Verdict

I may not be impressed by how this phone looks, but I am really impressed by how this phone looks. The durability of the battery is questionable and also the fact that the phone uses the LG version of Android which proved to be a little problematic. However, the wow factor comes from the two cameras and the fingerprint scanner (again).
