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.
