To us to edition came pre-instance with no accessories and box, so to mention only the declared package. It includes USB cable and AC charging adapter with a current of 2 A, plus documentation.
Design LG K10 was virtually unchanged compared with the predecessor, except that the added gloss and gloss.
The whole front part is solid glass with neat twists of the vertical faces. Top center — thin metal grille for speaker, to the left — the block of sensors of light and proximity and a selfie-camera.
Around the perimeter of the body is a thin chrome strip neatly tight bottom end. It is microUSB, 3.5 mm audio Jack and main microphone hole. Additional microphone at the top, and rocker volume on the left side. For smartphones LG this arrangement is unusual, especially the power button is left behind.
The entire rear surface of the decorated metal, with a neat arrangement of the main camera module, led flash and fingerprint scanner, combined with pressing power. Combined key called Smart Key, but the main speaker made to the bottom edge.
All the slots are located under the lid, like a small replaceable battery of 2800 mAh. SIM-card format nano here, and one can be changed in two steps, and to replace the second will need to remove first the memory card and battery.
Slim glossy case is devoid of sharp edges and soft to the touch, but the size of LG K10 is quite immodest. Especially at the height that feels when placed in front pants pocket.
The quality of the elements accustomed to a high level, adjusted for the plastic. Today in this price range accustomed to seeing metal, or glass, not thin plastic.
One of the features of the device — an unusual diagonal TFT-IPS screen of 5.3 inches at a resolution of 1280×720 pixels. Special claims to the sharpness of the image, but the individual pixels are distinguishable.
The color no complaints, the picture is neat and rich within the RGB range and the white balance fits into 7000K.
With viewing angles are all excellent, as with the brightness of the backlight — minimum value suitable for reading in the twilight, and the maximum height allows you to watch videos under the February sun.
The device can recognize up to ten simultaneous touches, there is a oleophobic coating that facilitates swipe and delete traces.
In the spirit of 2017, LG K10 is supplied with the operating system Android 7.0 Nougat. The main changes are reduced to the optimization of the system and greatly expand the list of supported codecs and interfaces. Visual shell for LG did a good job by integrating several options for every taste.
The first offers all of the content in the Windows home screen with a custom scale labels, widgets and fonts. Pleased with the rich functionality of the notifications, animations, disclosure tabs the quick access icons are also good.
The second option is lightweight, with quick dialing to the left side and a separate apps menu. Note for flexible configuration of virtual control keys to which you can add a switch SIM card, display button the blinds and QSlide for rapid deployment of certain applications a small window.
By the way about Windows. There is a function to split the screen into two equal parts for simultaneous application usage. It will help to write the messenger a quote from a WEB page or to count in the calculator estimate. Ideas of the multi-mode a lot, and the screen size allows.
The third mode — the traditional LG, and is different from the first selected application menu. There are also mobile ready theme with ability to download new using SmartWorld.
Not to turn the review into a multi-volume description of LG shell, select another bunch of small labels standard features, as well as nurturing a redraw of the basic tools in the system. Smartphone keyboard is relatively close to the original, although the QWERTY in landscape mode does not look very neat.
Third-party software at a minimum. From basic additions note file Manager and FM radio.
Protection, that looks fine, and the fingerprint sensor is very fast and consistently accurate. Never had to enter a password due to wrong attempts of pattern recognition. Except that to find the scanner easy.
The machine at work
The device is built on the chipset MediaTek MT6750 with 64-bit Quad-core 1.5 GHz Cortex-A53 and Quad 1GHz Cortex-A53. RAM 2 GB, and the graphics Mali-T860, MP2. The internal memory of 16 GB, plus a slot for cards and OTG connection.
Work this mix manifests itself well, not bothering delays on switching between any applications, like in the hands of the public sector, and the flagship.
Measurements of benchmarks are not so optimistic in the estimates, especially in 3DMark SlingShot. And that in games?
Watching Full HD videos also any questions. About 720p and say no, everything is fine.
With the main task of the means of communication operated on a solid five. A third of the volume reserve from the earpiece to transfer the exact tone of voice of the interlocutor and the reliable reception — no complaints. Vibration motor is also good, but the main speaker is quiet and squeaky, which is strange. Maybe it’s a problem of a specific test sample.
Headphones the opposite. The power amplifier is small, but the volume is 20% of the stock ear buds and plugs entry level. The nature of the neutral sound, good detail, can discern the flow of low frequencies between MP3 and FLAC tracks.
The company focuses on front-facing 5 MP unit with a wide-angle lens-level Action cameras-but the main 13 MP camera is also interesting. In the application of a minimum manual settings, but the startup speed, focusing, and processing the image within seconds.
Day the picture quality is good. Automation accurately guess the exposure, carefully selects the white balance and ISO holds at a minimum.
Indoors the camera also shows a decent result, providing good detail and low noise in the frame.
Night pictures are well detailed and almost devoid of noise.
Subject flash photography is often better than the free led backlight. Reason — in the ability of the camera to expose the shutter lag for the filling effect.
Close-up shots are often successful, but it is worth remembering the minimum focusing distance is 8 cm, otherwise the foreground will be slightly blurred.
I did text a lot depends on the light level.
Front camera with a wide-angle lens 120 degrees — a real jewel LG K10 2017 from the point of view of the manufacturer. Optics is fixed, but there is a possibility of the crop at the usual angle. Listed allows you to take a group photo at arm’s length.
There is the possibility of video recording in Full HD at 30 fps. The picture is slightly soapy, but the recordings sound good.
The device is built on a modern chipset that supports simultaneous work of both SIM cards in 3G networks, and for data transfer available and LTE.
Set of wireless communication includes the actual Wi-Fi IEEE 802.11 ac and Bluetooth 4.2.
To navigation installed GPS and GLONASS. In combination with the aGPS speed cold start less than 10 seconds, and the restoration of the position — a couple of seconds.
LG K10 in 2017, there is a small removable battery capacity of 2800 mAh. Fast charging is not provided, so fully charge a device from scratch will work out for 2.5 hours, if you use memory with a current of 2A.
In terms of active exploitation with half an hour of calls, two hours on display and four hours of music through headphones in the evening is about 25% charge, so that count can only be a day. The main consumer of energy — clear screen, causing the video to watch it turned out only 11 hours. Hour game tanks took a 29% charge, and 10 hours of listening to music with headphones took only 31% charge.
Fair day a day of operation was confirmed by measurement in the benchmark PCMark. As for the actual test conditions, the brightness of the screen was exposed on 29%.
Selfie camera LG K10 2017 pleasantly surprised by the wide-angle of 120 degrees, but much more in the smartphone pleased with the ergonomics. Easy and convenient case, multimedia to be good, but the filling easily pulls any games. Add well made software and good battery life, and the recommended price will seem like a discount.
