LG K10 and LG K7 hands-on: LG at CES 2016

 

This year the CES expo in Las Vegas is mostly about HDR TVs and smart appliances (fridges, washing machines) rather than smartphones and slates. LG is among the few manufacturers to bring new mobile gadgets - the LG K10 and LG K7.

LG K10

 

The LG K10 for MetroPCS is a relatively affordable Android phone with a nice build, but it's held back by underpowered hardware.

Relatively affordable. Attractive build. Expandable storage, removable battery, and NFC.

Dated processor. Mediocre camera. Heavy UI layer.

The LG K10 is a relatively affordable MetroPCS phone with a nice design and a decent display, but it comes up short everywhere else. For even less money, the ZTE Zmax Pro gets you a faster processor, more RAM, a sharper display, a better camera, longer...

LG K10 Smartphone Review

 

Pitch-dark. LG's K10 wants to add style to the lower mid-range. Read why its screen and the camera's gloomy photos stand in its way in this report.

stylish and rigid casing ; good signal quality ; decent call quality ; decent black value ; stable viewing angles ; loud speaker ; useful battery life ; removable battery

slow and low-signal GPS ; dark camera photos ; moderate screen brightness ; extreme bluish tint ; below-category performance

LG's K10 is a pleasant to hold smartphone that delivers a solid performance in terms of call and signal quality, software, casing and battery life. No more and no less. Although that is not enough for outbreaks of enthusiasm, unlikely anyone will be...

LG K10 Smartphone Mini Review: Solid Specs on the Cheap

 

Consider the LG K10 if you are on a tight budget and can get it for less than $100, however, there are much better phones if you can spend up to $200.

LG K10 LTE REVIEW

 

LG had announced the K7 and K10 smartphones in the K series at CES 2016. The company has now launched the K10 LTE in India for Rs. 13,500 and it is ‘Made in India'. The phone has a 5.3-inch display, comes with 2.5 D Arc Glass and offers some...

Good Build Quality and Design ; Decent Camera ; Decent Performance

Average Display ; No fingerprint sensor ; Priced on the higher side

LG K10 review

 

A large LG phone that runs Android for a not-so-large price

Destined to be inexpensive ; Large 5.3-inch display ; Smooth arc glass design

Sticks with a 720p resolution ; Specs options may be limited ; Speaker is on the back cover

The LG K10 is shaping up to be a competitive budget phone that runs Android. While Motorola has impressed us the most before, this K Series entry for 2016 has a smoother design and rocks a large, 5.3-inch display.

LG K10 and K4 smartphones widen range around the world

 

The South Korean mobile giant will juxtapose its two new flagships with these underpowered handsets, both of which fail to run the latest version of Android.
