What the Critics Are Saying...


PC Magazine

The LG K10 is a relatively affordable MetroPCS phone with a nice design and a decent display, but it comes up short everywhere else.

- Ajay Kumar, PC Magazine
TechPP

If we have to give this phone to a regular user, he won’t feel any annoyance as the phone is pretty stable from performance perspective. The camera is still questionable though.

- Ashish Mohta, TechPP
Notebookcheck

It is too middling in many aspects. But users who see their smartphone as an everyday tool will get a decent device.

LG's K10 is a pleasant to hold smartphone that delivers a solid performance in terms of call and signal quality, software, casing and battery life. No more and no less. Although that is not enough for outbreaks of enthusiasm, unlikely anyone will be unhappy with the handset. It is a solid worker that could have its moment of fame thanks to the 2.5D glass on the front and the lightly patterned back.
