The LG V10 was a pretty great phone when it was released. Not only did it have a secondary ticker display, but a removable battery and expandable storage too. The phone originally shipped with Android 5.1.1, but that was later updated to 6.0 Marshmallow. Now the T-Mobile LG V10 is getting a bump to 7.0. Read More
Representatives from Girard Gibbs LLP, the firm previously handling one of the LG bootloop lawsuits, contacted us late yesterday with news about the case. On June 29th the court gave an order granting the defendant's motion to compel arbitration, dismissing the lawsuit. That means that right now the suit has been forced into arbitration. Read More
It looks like LG can't catch a break. Hot on the heels of our news about the G4 and V10, it looks like the attorneys in that suit may be doing research into other potentially affected devices, including the G5, V20, and Nexus 5X. Read More
LG's bootloop problems have become the butt of the joke online over the past few months. While Samsung was busy cooling down the fire of its Note7 fiasco, LG was getting heat over its freezing LG G4 and V10, among other devices (like the Nexus 5 and 5X). Many reports were surfacing of these phones getting stuck in a bootloop vicious circle, turning on and off, not properly booting, and leaving the owners without any recourse but to ask for a replacement unit... if they were still under warranty.
Now these owners are seeking their day in court thanks to a new class-action lawsuit filed to the California federal court. Read More
The LG V10 is a bit over a year old now, but it's still a more than capable phone that probably never got the attention it deserved. More important, you'll have a hard time finding many better phones for $259, its current sale price at DailySteals. Read More
The V10 is a massively underrated phone; it excels in a number of arenas where other phones fall flat on their faces. Spec-wise, it's not as nice as the recently announced V20, but have fun trying to get one of those for under $300 in the near future. If you're looking for an affordable flagship, the Verizon LG V10 will be waiting for you at Best Buy for a price of $299.99. Read More
With the almost limitless number of Android devices on the market, the amount supporting WiFi Calling on AT&T is somewhat limited. The first Android device that AT&T allowed into the WiFi calling club was the LG G4, even after the LG G5 had been available on the network for some time.
Aside from the G4, the only other supported devices were various iPhone models, a few recent Samsung flagships, and two other LG phones. Now the LG V10 is joining that list, with a software update pushing out to owners with the new feature.
The update, with a build number of MRA58K, apparently only includes the addition of WiFi calling; sorry if you got your hopes up for a Nougat update. Read More
Do you like the LG V10's hardware but wish you can install a different ROM on it? The first step to that is by unlocking your phone's bootloader. In LG phones, this has been notoriously difficult because the company locks its bootloaders and workarounds are either non-existent or super complicated.
What LG has been offering though, in the past year, is an official page to help you unlock the bootloader on the European G4 and G5, and now it's adding the LG V10 for Europe. But only on Marshmallow — this doesn't work if you're still on Lollipop. Oh and there's a clear exception for France, because as far as I can tell the phone wasn't officially released in the country.

Perhaps the LG G5 isn't what you're looking for in a phone. No big, LG also has the V10. It's bigger, has a secondary display, and now it has Marshmallow on AT&T. The UI won't change to match the G5, but you'll get all the usual Marshmallow goodies. Read More
The LG G5 hasn't really lived up to expectations, and the price is up there. If that phone isn't doing it for you, but you have a hankering for a removable battery, the LG V10 might be the phone for you. It has similar hardware to the G4, but it's bigger with sturdier construction, and there's that second display. It's not usually a cheap phone, but the unlocked version is on sale today for $449.99 on eBay. Read More
