As mentioned earlier, the V10 has unique dual lens front camera and two display setup. Compared to the 8MP selfie camera of the G4, the V10 only has 5MP but it can do either a personal selfie or a wide group selfie with ease. Another unique thing about the V10 is its dual display. A smaller panel is positioned above the main display to act as secondary for notifications, time, date, and shortcuts. This gives uninterrupted usage of the main display especially when watching videos and playing mobile games.


In terms of memory, the V10 has a bigger internal storage and higher RAM compared to the G4. That’s 64GB vs 32GB, and 4GB vs 3GB. Not only that, the V10 can support up to 2TB of expanded memory via microSD.

The two has 16MP camera and shoots 4K with optical image stabilization, a combo for having a clear and smooth video. While manual image control has been around for a while, and the G4 performs well at it, the V10 expands the manual control to videos. Making it a decent camcorder for general use.

LG V10 advantages:
– Dual Lens and Dual Display
– Bigger 64GB internal storage
– Higher 4GB RAM
– Manual video recording

LG G4 advantages:
– 8-megapixel front-facing camera
– Higher 538ppi pixel density
– Lighter at 155g

LG V10 easily beats the G4 on paper and it’s clearly the new king of the Korean tech-giant. Still, the G4 is a great smartphone for power users and its 6-month long reign as LG’s flagship has been worthwhile.

    Why would you need the smaller pannel if the notification bar is already accessible in the screen? and you have the LED’s to notify you if there’s a notification available?

    You can always pull the notification bar and send a message with g4 without even interrupting the video you are watching and the games you are playing. Chat via messenger and other apps is also available hence the weird

    Cnother cons for V10 having multiple screen is the energy consumption of the phone trying to maintain both screens

    Can do either a personal selfie or a wide group selfie = can’t you do this on your regular 8megapixel phone? purely gimik! :)

    Expands the manual control to videos – added to g4 last update? :)

    The only pro i see is the 4gb ram which is very much needed to power up that 2nd screen, and 64gb rom, giving you atleast 3gb left to use for your system tasks.

    Just my 2 cents! :)

      Sorry to give my opinion/answer on your post, but here it goes:

      Secondary Screen – Aside from notifications, it actually acts as an additional quick-access to fave contacts, app shortcuts, recent apps, events, music player, etc, without the need to disturb the main screen.

      Energy Consumption – Actually, by having a small secondary screen, energy consumption is greatly minimized because you can access the secondary screen and your shortcuts while the main screen is turned off. That’s the idea, at least. Based on reviews, a lot of users are liking this secondary screen because it was well thought of.

      Wide Angle Camera – Camera view is dependent on the lens used and not on the megapixel. Even if you have an 8MP camera, having a standard angle camera view (like most phones) and using your hand’s standard reach would give you the same shot/picture as with a 5MP. The wide angle lens actually lets you capture a bigger view, especially if your reach is limited. Well, tt least selfie addicts would have a choice now. :)

      What’s unique with the V10 is its full stainless steel frame (material similar to luxury watch standards) integrated with a duraguard silicone bumper. It is shock-resistant (based on military standards testing) and it also features a dual-layer Corning Gorilla Glass 4 display.

      So far, the manual video mode is still unique to V10. I doubt LG will release an update to include this to G4, but it is possible. :)
