LG V10 The V10 is the first (non-Nexus) LG phone with a fingerprint sensor.The new LG V10 Android smartphone has two selfie shooters and a second screen, both sitting immediately above its 5.7-inch display.The sturdily designed LG V10 gives users more camera control with manual modes for both photos and video, a fingerprint sensor, two front-facing cameras for wider selfie shots, expandable memory and a removable battery. It features a similar six-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor to the LG G4, but with 4GB of RAM so certain processes should run more smoothly. It has 64GB of internal storage, with a microSD card slot capable of expanding that by a further 200GB. The rear camera is 16-megapixels, with optical image stablisation, while the front 5-megapixel snapper has two lenses to create a winder field of view than most front cams. This was apparent when we took a selfie at the show, with the camera taking in a lot more background than most.
It can record 4K video at 30 frames per second, with a slow-mo function able to record 720p at 120fps. And it is a 4G device.
The 5.7-inch main panel is a larger version of the G4’s Quad HD display, and it’s stunning. Bring the brightness down to about 50-percent, choose a dark wallpaper with splashes of color, and revel in its gorgeousness. Play some video, and it’s even better, with strong contrast, incredibly bright colors, and lively tones. It may not be incredibly lifelike, but it just looks so good, you won’t care if it’s perhaps less natural than other screens.
The 2.1-inch second screen is an always-on mini display that I wanted to use more than I did. LG’s keen on giving us ways to access often-needed information quickly. The second screen has a lot of useful moments for being so small, and it’s better than what other companies have tried to do with similar experiments, even if it is an ergonomic nightmare.Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset with Quad-core Processor and 4GB RAM, the new LG’s V10 is considered as a new flagship device set to answer other smartphone giants. It has 4 gigs of RAM and 64 gigs of storage, and there's a microSD card slot. Powering a 16.0MP main unit with laser focus, HDR and panorama mode and a front snapper with 5MP autofocus lens; the phone is set for every kind of photography. With LG V10’s QHD 5.7 Quantum IPS+ display and it runs at QHD 2560 x 1440, all of your movies will be played at their very best but if you want stream a movie online, go 4K streaming with its advanced LTE support. LG equips V10 with a massive 128GB expandable storage so that you can easily download, watch and share movies on your device without worrying about the space. But,The V10 shares has the same hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor and Adreno 418 GPU as the G4. This is a bit of disappointing, because at this price it should really be packing the faster Snapdragon 810 and Adreno 430 like the Nexus 6P.The handset is pricey, its secondary display doesn't offer any essential necessities and its manual camera features require some time to learn.
THE BOTTOM LINE At 5.7 inches, with a second screen that brings it to 5.9 inches, this is a phablet that competes with the iPhone 6S Plus and Samsung Galaxy Note 5. Its price, still undetermined but more expensive than the LG G4, is going to be a big factor for many people.The feature-packed V10 is LG's best smartphone yet -- just be prepared to pay a premium for its selfie- and photo-friendly extras.

VS Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge
This is a first for an AMOLED smartphone, and dramatically boosts screen clarity when you're outdoors. Colours look punchy and I had no trouble using it in direct sunlight.The Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge's wraparound screen transforms an already great phone into Samsung's best-looking handset. Ever. The QHD display complements the sweeping, curving design by giving you something visually stunning to look at. It's not a huge step forward from the full HD panel on the Galaxy S5, but it looks great. For a long time now Samsung has used Qualcomm Snapdragon processors in its flagships, at least in the West. In Asia it's been using its own-brand Exynos processors, which it's now opted to put in the Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge. And it looks like the right decision.
The Exynos is a 64-bit processor, so some 64-bit compatible apps should see a modest performance boost. More importantly, and just like the 810, it uses ARM’s big.LITTLE configuration. This allows a ‘big’ quad-core CPU (2.1GHz) to be paired with a ‘little’, low-power quad-core (1.5GHz). Smaller tasks like browsing the web and listening to music use the little quad, which uses less juice. Intensive tasks, like 3D gaming, use the big quad.
Even in power saving mode, the S6 Edge has a higher Geekbench 3 score than the HTC One M9 running at full speed. When it comes to 3DMark Ice Storm Unlimited test – a test that focuses on gaming performance – full power results are a lot closer, but even here the S6 Edge comes out on top. What makes the Exynos 7420 special is that it uses a 14nm manufacturing process, like the latest Intel chips, that puts it ahead of the 20nm process used by Qualcomm on the Snapdragon 810. In layman’s terms, smaller manufacturing processes provide benefits to processing speeds and help reduce the use of battery power.
Not only is the Exynos 7420 super-fast, it also seems to run a lot cooler than the Snapdragon 810 on the HTC One M9 and LG G Flex 2. Even during a prolonged gaming session the Edge remains cool to touch, although battery drain rises significantly.
Gaming performance is top-notch with intensive games like Riptide 2 running like a dream. We didn’t experience a single dropped frame or stutter. The S6 Edge is a real powerhouse thanks to that beast of a processor. Samsung made the right move dropping Qualcomm’s effort.
but,That supercool design comes with a big price tag, and the screen doesn't deliver any real killer apps. Like the regular S6, the Edge doesn't support swappable batteries or expandable storage. The lack of expandable storage isn't a huge issue as the S6 Edge comes in 32GB, 64GB and 128GB flavors with the added bonus of 100GB of free OneDrive cloud storage - but battery life isn't up to standard. You'll struggle to see out a whole day with moderate usage, and that's a real shame. If you're a heavy user you'll be dashing for a charger mid-afternoon.
THE BOTTOM LINEThe Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge is one of those phones that sets a line in the sand for smartphones. It makes curved edges viable, offering them in a phone that doesn't look bonkers just for the sake of it. Samsung's striking, high-end Galaxy S6 Edge has the beauty, brains and brawn to take down the iPhone 6 and all the Android competition.
