PhoneCurry Editor's Note

summarizing opinion across 3 expert reviews

What We Liked

  • Nice pebble-shaped design
  • Light and handy
  • LG's proprietary UI offers plenty of customisation to users without feeling too complicated
  • Decent battery life - delivers a full day's backup with moderate use
  • Pretty decent front camera for selfies

What We Didn't

  • The all-plastic body of the K10 with a brushed metal finish competes with many all-metal smartphones in this price bracket, and therefore lags behind on build quality
  • Average display - colours look a bit washed out in movies and games, and text looks a bit dull too - visibility under sunlight is not too great either
  • Modest performer - doesn't feel nippy like its Snapdragon competitors (Redmi Note 4, Moto G4 Plus), and with multiple apps running it tends to become a little sluggish
  • Average rear camera - loses out in terms of color accuracy - even daytime shots look a tad washed out
  • The camera app, though simple to use, takes a bit of time to process images
