LG V10 : Still Worth it in 2016 ? (6 Months Later + Android 6.0 Marshmallow)

The LG V10 came out in late 2015, before the latest flagships like the Galaxy S7, LG G5, and HTC 10. However, the V10 was recently updated to Android 6.0 Marshmallow, so can it now compete with the latest and greatest 2016 flagships?

Video Summary:
In this video I talk about Android 6.0 and how it increases the quality of the finger print scanner, and the second screen. However, I mention that the battery life still isn’t good, even with Android 6.0’s doze feature. The 64GB of storage is great, I have only used up 24GB at this time. Another downsize is the removable back seems to be slowly peeling apart.

22 Comments on LG V10 : Still Worth it in 2016 ? (6 Months Later + Android 6.0 Marshmallow)

  1. love my V10. best phone I've had. only a couple little bugs with the system but and for some reason Verizon felt the need to take away alot of features on it but other then that its a amazing phone

  2. Second screen is kinda gimmicky…needs more options or uses…I would rather have a notification LED as well, but they omitted that feature in lui of always on second screen notifications, which I cant see from across the room, or at all should i want to turn off the screen while it charges at night sice the glow annoys me. The second screen is actually not real, the lcd panel in the phone is one large panel, that has the 2 cams covering the left portion of it. The software sets a "Margin" for the main screen, and runs a secondary framework for the second screen. U can tell its one panel when u use TWRP and it displays as one large 6in or so panel. Also, because of this Second screen, u can not adjust the dpi the otherwise FC hell. Aside from all of this, I still like the phone. Upgrade from my G3.

  3. I've just got a Samsung s5 (normal not neo) as a gift. do you recommend me to use it sell it and buy a V10 ? I'm hesitated cause I like that s 5 is water- dust proof but also really like the design and 4gb ram of v10's

  4. I've had the v10 since the start of 2016 and I've never had any wear on the back rubber, also the battery life consumption u mention could be due to the amount of processing u have on ur phone as well as screen brightness

  5. i had that phone and i thought it was too big as far as width and height. i had great time with it but that s7 and edge with the water resistances Im definitely a happy camper. All smartphones should be water resistance

  6. I've got one too, and love it. Haven't had any major problems. Just don't have stupid snapchat and other things running in the background, and it'll save the battery life heaps. I think the second screen is a gimic. It works, but all the rest of the features, it kills so many phones. and the price is amazing.
    I also got a case too. http://www.ebay.com.au/itm/262297545690?_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2649&var=561052283215&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT
    Worth it. :)

  7. I have mine for 6 months and: battery cover is still like new, battery lasts for a day no problem and the camera is f**ing great if you take the time to learn how to use it properly.

  8. I own the LG V10 and Love It! Had the Samsung Galaxy s5 and left them when in their wisdom Samsung decided to forgo removable batteries and sd cards. On a side note I adored my s5. For me it came down to the Note 5 if I stayed with Samsung or switching altogether to a different brand. I tried the Note, I did not last 48 hours, I switched it for the LG V10 and have never been happier. On this review you put the battery life as a negative as a previous HEAVY SAMSUNG USER, I find this amusing. Samsung has so much bloat ware, and I had 2 extra batteries for my s5. (That is correct, two.) The Beauty of the LG IS THE OPTION, of removing the back cover and putting in a spare battery. You are totally spot on regarding the Marshmallow update, I am still discovering new features or additions to features since the update. Also, I purchased my LG V10 12/3/15 and have no wear marks anywhere on my back. I use this LG at least 50% more than my samsung s5, I have 2 extra batteries for the v10 but recently purchased a monster battery, I am Loving the additional time it gives me I believe it's 6800 mAh. The LG 5 is no comparison to the v10 that is the equivalent to comparing a loaded Buick to a Loaded Rolls Royce. The LG 5 is an awesome device but is not near as fabulous as the LG V10, in my opinion.
    Well, there you have it, I'm Mish a recovering samsung groupie celebrating my liberation since purchasing an LG V10. Oh and I would DEFINITELY POSITIVELY PURCHASE THIS 6 MONTHS LATER:) Great Review, thank you.

  9. battery life doesn't really matter with a spare battery
    Had my v10 since opening day. Other than waterproofing that the s7 has nothing can touch the camera or the durability of this phone. Dropped mine quite often and it's mil spec does as advertised. upgradeability to wireless charging through Amazon offerings is awesome. I also have the 200 gb memory card installed and the recent g5 s7 and m10 have not been substantial enough for me to switch. The spec war game has hit an impasse. Innovation is dying. lg has an amazing idea with the modularity of the g5 but they have up on it as soon as they released the g5. The g5 has also had some glaring quality control issues. Samsung just seems like an iPhone esuqe copy at this point. The s7 is just the s6 with s5 feature thrown in there. Best modular idea would have to be the new Motorola but the trade-off is either a massive camera bump without the attachment or a bulky beast with it. pho e makers have run out of innovative ideas and quickly seem to be going the way of the tablet with nothing left to prove.

  10. Nice video, thanks for uploading it.  I recently upgraded to a V10 thru Verizon and I love almost everything about it but have 1 huge, huge issue and LG seems like they are ignoring it; after I upgraded to Marshmallow, the ability to change the text size of my outgoing email “disappeared.”  My outgoing email text size is so tiny and in the business world, it isn’t going to cut it.  Does anyone have a fix for this? 
    I have 18 days left to return and am really hoping for a fix.
