Specs Details and Opinion of LG K10 LTE
The display of the LG K10 LTE made of IPS LCD having 1280 X 720 pixels HD screen resolution. The screen size is 5.3inch protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3. This device is loaded with Android 5.1 OS in the Indian variant and Europe variant while other variants are coming with Android 6.0.
Looking at the hardware, there is Snapdragon 410 Quad-core CPU processor with 1.2GHz clock speed and Adreno 306 GPU. This CPU is seriously an old model. Snapdragon 410 is not a great hardware for the smartphones of 2016. To couple with the CPU, there is a 1GB RAM (1.5GB RAM in some variants). There is no word to say for this specification in RAM. 1GB RAM is not at all enough for struggling less multi-tasking.
The inbuilt storage is 16GB. The storage can be expanded more 32GB via micro SD card. The smartphone has a 13MP camera on the rear and 5MP camera on the front. They are pretty decent specs, but the camera app is reduced to minimal in options. This leads to the real issue for those who need a variety of settings to make the pictures good for the prevailing conditions.
The battery is 2300mAh, which is perfect to power this low-mid range device. There is no quick charge facility, no NFC, no Fingerprint sensor and no USB OTG.

The price for the Indian variant of LG K10 LTE is around Rs.13,750/- and for Europe variant, the price is 249 Euros. The price is too big for a smartphone with 1GB RAM. I think this one reason is more than enough to skip this phone from buying it. And there are more than this one reason to not to buy this phone.
