LG's Factory Reset Protection Can Be Bypassed In Mere Minutes

Google added factory reset protection to Android in Lollipop 5.1 last year, but not all devices implement Android in exactly the same way. That has led to some potential methods to bypass the account check. "RootJunky" already managed to find a workaround for Samsung phones, and now there's one for LG devices as well. It only takes a few minutes to get around factory reset protection.

LG V10 Review: LG Got Me Falling In Love

I need to be real with you guys here: I've never liked any device that forced me to use whatever garbage skin the manufacturer was putting on them at the time. In other words, I've always been an "Android Purist," if you will — it was stock Android and nothing else for me, and it's really been like that since I became an Android user. Now, I've had no trouble being objective when it comes to reviewing devices with skins; just because I don't like it doesn't make it "bad."

While I wouldn't go as far as to say that the V10 is a game-changing phone in general, it has definitely been a game-changer for me.

LG Announces The V10 With Dual Front-Facing Cameras, Manual Video Capture, And Secondary Display (Updated With Carrier Info)

Mere hours ago we saw LG's new V10 phone leaked courtesy of @evleaks, and now LG has made it official.

The V10, which will be shown off at an event in NYC tomorrow, has the hallmark characteristics we've seen leaked and hinted before - a dual front-facing camera setup and a secondary display along the top of the device.

The dual front shooters, LG says, are for 120-degree selfies (or "standard" 80-degree selfies if you wish), capturing wide-angle photos with minimal distortion.

Hands-On With The LG V10

This morning at the Walter Reade theater in NYC, LG (re)announced the dual-display, triple-camera V10 phone, a device we heard all about last night. After today's (short) presentation, we got a few minutes to play with the V10 first-hand.

The phone is made of stainless steel and Duraguard silicone, materials that contribute to what LG says is superior durability, passing drop tests "from 48 inches at various angles." In photos, the textured, segmented back cover looks kind of weird, but in person it feels pretty nice and isn't too visually distracting. The overall device feels weighty and - because of the stainless steel strips along the left and right edges - smooth.
