THE LG V10 HAS BEEN DISCONTINUED. FOR ALTERNATIVES, PLEASE SEE THE LG RANGE HERE.
LG V10 (SIM Free)
The V10 pushes the boundaries with a second screen above the main 5.7” display to show the weather, time, date and more.
Finished in high grade stainless steel and durable silicone the V10 looks and feels quite something in hand.
SIM Free / Factory Unlocked stock
Clove currently stock the EU, SIM Free and unlocked version of the LG V10. The phone has not been officially launched by LG in the UK market, although these phones will operate on all mobile networks across the UK and Europe.
For LTE connectivity outside of Europe, please check the specifications and your local operator.
The EU model of the V10 has been sourced from an approved LG supplier in mainland Europe. This stock has been opened prior to shipping to us in the UK, to ensure a UK ready firmware is installed. This has resulted in the factory applied security seal on the box being cut. Your statutory rights and the product's warranty are unaffected.

LG have challenged what is considered normal when it comes to smartphone design for some time. Rear mounted volume and power buttons are unique to LG phones and the V10 is no different.
As this is no normal phone, the V10 has a resilient Dura Guard frame that firmly secures the display to protect the phone from hard bumps and tumbles. Composed of SAE grade 316L stainless steel, the same tough, hypoallergenic material used to make surgical tools and high-end watches!
The edges and corners are the most vulnerable areas of a phone; the extra protection provided by the Dura Guard frame ensures maximum durability.
Soft Dura Skin is resistant to nicks and scratches, offers added protection to the back and bottom from direct impacts to the device. The back grid pattern was designed specifically to offer a more secure grip.
Independent testing and certification firm MET Laboratories tested the LG V10 by dropping it from height of 48 inches repeatedly at different angles and found it to be “MIL-STD-810G Transit Drop Compliant” for shock.
The Android operating system needs no real introduction.
Found on the V10 you can gain access to millions of applications and tools within a few clicks that make the device even more personal and useful to you.
Integrating with popular Google services, just by signing in with your Google account you have a powerful computing solution and much of your important data to hand within minutes.
Add social media accounts, corporate email accounts, watch videos on YouTube or navigate anywhere in the world all from the V10.
If you have ever used a desktop PC with 2 screens you know how much more productive you can be as a result so why limit that to the desktop?
The V10 offers a second screen as an inset display above the main 5.7-inch QHD IPS Display.
Working independently, the second screen can be set up to be “always on” to enhance the V10’s productiveness, without impacting battery life.
Have it show the weather, time, date and battery icon when the main display is off. With the main display on, set it to convert to a dedicated launching area for shortcuts or your favourite apps.
Swiping it allows immediate access to Quick Tools, an easy shortcut panel to Silent Mode, Wi-Fi, flash, and camera.
Perhaps our favourite feature is when you might be enjoying a video or playing a game, the second screen will discreetly notify you when a call or text comes in, rather than an intrusive notification on the primary screen.
Dual Front Cameras
The V10 offers what sounds to be a slightly unusual front camera. It features 5MP dual front cameras with two separate lenses to capture standard 80 degree selfies or perfect wide angle selfies of 120 degrees, without the need to pan the smartphone, which would normally increase the likelihood of camera shake and a poor resulting final image.
For the wide angle shot, the V10 uses a sophisticated software algorithm to combine images from the two separate lenses. Multi-view Recording can capture different angles utilizing all three cameras on the V10.
Video and Audio Capture
The G4 has arguably the best camera on an Android smartphone so why should the V10 be any different?
Exceptional image and video capture is built into the V10.
Whether through the automatic or manual modes you can capture images and video that really does capture the moment.
Manual mode for video offers adjustment of options such as shutter speed, frame rate, ISO, white balance and focus while recording. Videos can be recorded in three resolutions — HD, FHD or UHD — and two aspect ratios — 16:9 standard or 21:9 cinematic.
With great video comes great audio and the V10 has things covered here too. 3 microphones are built in with controllable directivity.
Additional features found on the V10 include:
- Steady Record: utilises electronic image stabilization (EIS) optimized for recording video to neutralise shake, helping to capture sharper video footage when in motion
- Snap Video: create one video by combining many shorter videos
15 Sec. Auto Edit: create a short video highlight clip by automatically eliminating blurred frames and static scenes
- Quick Video Editor: easily trim or change the frame rate and add after-effects, such as colors and background music
- Quick Share: when finished recording, a pop-up appears on the display showing options of popular social networks to make video sharing even easier and faster
- Audio Monitor: adjust the sensitivity of the three microphones during video recording and directly monitor and control audio input, including directional recording capability to highlight sound from one particular location
- Wind Noise Filter: eliminate external wind noise for high-quality sound when shooting video outdoors
Available with 32 or 64GB of internal storage the V10 should have most covered. But, if capturing lots of images and video you need not be limited. 4G connectivity allows you to transfer files to and from the cloud, but this is not always practical, so the V10 has a microSD memory card slot too.
All these features will impact on the battery life if you use the V10 to the full. Thankfully the 3,000mAh battery should keep you going for a reasonable amount of time.
When the going gets really tough, just pop out the battery and replace with another or take advantage of the QualComm Quick Charge functionality which allows the battery to be replenished to 50% capacity in just 40 minutes.
Great Sounding Music & Voice
The V10 has been designed to be best-in-class.
It features 32 bit Hi-Fi DAC by ESS Technology.
Now you can listen to music in original Hi-Fi sound on your smartphone. Besides the support of high-quality audio formats such as flac, wav, etc., the LG V10’s upsampling technology recovers corrupt MP3 files and delivers the crisp and clear sound of each musical instrument, even on live streaming music services.
Another first is the first commercial device to utilise Qualcomm Technologies TruSignal antenna boost technology designed to intelligently optimise signal strength at all times for fewer dropped calls, faster data and better call coverage, no matter how the phone is held.
Access and Security
Fingerprints are unique and with so much data on our phones we want to protect what is important to us.
A built in fingerprint sensor means that only you can access the content on the V10.
Turning on the display as soon as the scan is authorised, the sensor also works with Android Pay (in compatible countries) to make purchases as quick and easy as possible.
The V10 is a unique and powerful smartphone that could be an ideal companion for you. Buy SIM free from Clove today.
