This year, LG launched the LG G4 and LG V10, two flagship smartphones packed with top-end features. The LG V10 is the first handset in LG's V line of phones and is not the successor of LG G4.
Here is a comparison of some features of the LG G4 and LG V10.
The LG G4 sports a 5.5-inch IPS LCD display with 2,560 x 1,440 pixels resolution and 538ppi. The new LG V10 has a slightly bigger 5.7-inch IPS LCD screen but packs in the same resolution as the LG G4. However, the latest LG offering has 515ppi.
The LG V10 has two screens. Apart from the regular screen, the handset has a small screen at the top that helps users find shortcuts and contacts easily.
Unlike the LG G4, the LG V10 does not have a curved screen.
Processor and RAM
A hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 processor powers both the LG devices.
The LG G4 has 3GB of RAM while the LG V10 has a RAM of 4GB.
The LG V10 and LG G4 have a 16MP rear-facing camera. The LG G4 has a front-camera with 8MP while the LG V10 has two built-in 5MP selfie cameras.
"The LG V10 features 5MP Dual Front Cameras with two separate lenses to capture standard 80 degree selfies or perfect wide angle selfies of 120 degrees," stated LG.
The LG G4 has a 32GB internal storage capacity. The Korean company has doubled the LG V10's storage capacity to 64GB.
Both smartphones come with a microSD card slot that can be used to increase the storage capacity with memory cards of up to 2TB.
A 3,000mAh battery fuels both the LG smartphones. With the Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology built in the LG V10, it only takes 40 minutes to get a 50 percent charge.
The LG G4 and LG V10 are shipped with Android 5.1 Lollipop pre-installed. Both the handsets should get Android 6.0 Marshmallow in the coming months.
The LG G4 measures 5.86 x 3.00 x 0.39 inches, or 148.9 x 76.1 x 9.8 mm, which is slightly smaller but a bit thicker than the LG V10 that measures 6.28 x 3.12 x 0.34 inches, 159.6 x 79.3 x 8.6 mm.
The LG G4 weighs 5.47 ounces, 155 grams, which is lighter than the LG V10 that weighs 6.77 ounces, or 192 grams.
The LG G4 was released in April this year and packs in impressive features to attract smartphone customers. However, the two screens, the dual 5MP front camera and the presence of 4GB of RAM in the LG V10 give it an edge over the LG G4.
