LG K10 Review

Welcome to the 2017 LG K10 review, a ‘cheap’ just above entry level mobile phone according to the pricing. We where quite surprised when we managed to get a test of the phone recently, since it’s been for sale about 12 months now. The LG k10 Sells for less the $250 outright in Australia which makes it one of the cheapest phones with this specification from Samsung or any of the new Chinese brands at the moment.

In terms of construction the LK K10 is very good. It feels great in the hand for a phone this inexpensive there is really nothing to complain about. Sure it doesn’t feel premium but it doesn’t feel like its price suggests. The design it’s self is not completely modern with old school shell curves around the rear edges and a plastic power button on the rear but overall pretty decent.

In terms of hardware the LG K10 has pretty decent components that work better than many of similar price. It features a 5.3 inch 720P HD display of very decent quality and brightness running an unusual Mediatek Octa-Core CPU and 2Gig or RAM. The main camera pictures looks decent along with the front camera but there aren’t any other surprises.

In terms of use the LG K10 is surprisingly really good! Despite the seemingly ordinary specs the interface is smooth and apps runs quickly and responsive. We think that its due to the lack of heavy customisation like the other brands. Even games seem to run ‘well’ the basic ones like Clash of clans. We honestly couldn’t fault the K10 when running all the usual social apps and even navigation. If your needs do not go beyond the usual picture apps or social media the K10 will fit needs perfectly and cheaply without any risk.

The LG K10 is great budget phone. Out of the box it works really well, no complaints. How it performs with more than usual apps, emails and images it not really known but in all honestly we don’t think it will be a problem. That comment applies to all budget phones over the long term, but used as a secondary phone the LG K10 is high recommended with very little competition in the $250 price range and one that works so well.
