The under 15K smartphone arena is the hottest price range in the country at the moment with brands offering mind-boggling deals as they face fierce competition. The newest one to jump into the royal rumble is the LG K10 smartphone.
So what the does the LG K10 smartphone pack in for its 12K price tag? To begin with, a 5.3in HD screen welcomes you. A full HD display would have absolutely sealed the deal here, but I won’t start complaining so soon. The phone won’t win any brownie points for design. It is a simple slip-free rear packed in a curvy frame.
On the inside, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.2Ghz Quad Core chipset is entrusted with the number crunching and it's helped along by 2GB of RAM. I reckon you will run out of the 16 GB of onboard storage, but lucky you, the phone sports a MicroSD card slot, through which you can ramp up storage according to your needs. For trigger happy enthusiasts, the K10 sports a 13MP rear camera along with a selfie-loving 5MP front camera which packs in a 120-degree wide-angle lens. And a fingerprint scanner position on the back panel rounds things up pretty well.
The 2300 mAh battery on the inside offers enough firepower for the phone to run all day long without a fuss and you won't complain about the weight either while you are at it as it tips the scales at a lowly 142 grams. The LG K10 smartphone packs in a lot on the connectivity bit too with the goodies coming in the form of dual-nano SIM card slots, 4G LTE support, VoLTE and VoWiFi support, along with Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and GPS.
As you work with the phone on a day to day basis, surfing web pages and dealing with office apps is a breeze. The phone offers a lag free experience until you keep more than half a dozen apps open and switch between them. When it comes to the camera, I would rate it at just about average with daylight shots being reproduced just fine. There is a hint of noise when you zoom into shots after clicking them and this only gets highlighted even more as you take pictures in low light.
As we see it, the LG K10 smartphone will face fierce competition from the likes of Redmi Note 4 and more which offer much better specs and overall performance. But if you are looking specifically for a budget smartphone from LG, this one may just be the one.
