It has the memory capacity of a standard smartphone. Having more capacity would make apps less likely to crash and make it easier to use, but the performance is fine for the Internet and emailing. For gaming, you would want the next level up in performance.

Review of the product design of the LG K10 (2017)

Rating of the ease of carrying it around and getting it in and out of bags or pockets

When deciding whether to buy an LG K10 (2017), the first important factor is its size. Smartphones are used daily, and so it is important how easily they can be carried around and pulled out of bags or pockets. This review assesses how easy it is to carry the LG K10 (2017) around and put it away.

Ease of grasping it in your hand to carry around

The LG K10 (2017) is easily held with one hand, and its size allows it to be firmly held. It is small enough to be held in one hand together with things like a wallet, but this may be a bit difficult for ladies with small hands.

Ease of carrying it around when placing it in your pocket

It doesn't feel strange even when you put the LG K10 (2017) in a pocket. In addition, when sitting on a chair with the phone in a pocket, it can be kept comfortably as it doesn't get caught on one's clothes or body.

Ease of getting it in and out of your pocket

Sometimes taking the LG K10 (2017) out of your pocket doesn't go so well as it gets caught on fabric easily. It's safe to assume that some people will find it stressful that it is difficult to take it out smoothly.

Ease of getting it in and out of your bag

The LG K10 (2017) is a size that allows you to take it in and out of your bag and use it with ease. Also, since it is compact, even if your bag is small it won't get too bulky which is convenient.

Assessment of user-friendliness and ease of handling

It is important to consider the ease of using the phone in one hand. It can be said that it would be very useful if it is easier for you to send emails and instant messages or answer calls using one hand while cooking or using your computer. Here, we have reviewed the LG K10 (2017) by focusing on the ease of using it in one hand and the ease of typing in letters.

Ease of grasping the phone in one hand

The LG K10 (2017) is a size that allows you to have a firm grip even while using it. Since your hand is kept stable, it is difficult to accidentally drop the phone, and it is very easy to use. Since the original body size is small, the phone is still easy to hold even when using a case.

The weight you feel when using the phone with one hand

The LG K10 (2017) is light, and I think it can be operated with one hand for a long time without feeling tired. However, it may be a bit heavy for those who are not used to using smart phones. Also, as it is not a heavy smart phone, its weight does not really change when a case is added.

Ease of pushing the upper button on the screen using one hand

Holding the LG K10 (2017) with one hand tends to feel unstable when buttons are displayed on the edge of the screen. The size of the buttons doesn't make it impossible but it does make it more likely that you will drop it so take care.

The size of the buttons on the App

The buttons displayed on the LG K10 (2017) are large, and therefore it is difficult to press the wrong ones. While some buttons may look small depending on the app, you probably won't feel that stressed when you actually use it.

Ease of typing in letters using the flick function

Keys on the LG K10 (2017) can be pressed even when held with one hand, but your grip may weaken when trying to flick the buttons at the edges. As a result, it may become unstable in the hand when flicking quickly, but it won't be easy to drop as long as you are careful.

Ease of typing in letters using the keybord funtion

If you aren't being careful it is really easy to mistype when using the LG K10 (2017) with two hands since the buttons are so small. In addition, typing at high speeds is pretty difficult and I can't say its very suited for it.

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

Assessment of whether it is suitable for standard use

For people who use their smartphone on a daily basis, high performance is a rather important factor. When the performance is not good enough, then, for example, applications don't work as they should or the screen is difficult to see, and this causes stress. This review looks at whether the performance of the LG K10 (2017) is suitable for making phone calls, messaging, or using SNS.

The size of the letters and the ease of operation

In general, the LG K10 (2017) displays characters and pictures in sizes that are easy to see. While some characters may look small depending on the app, they are not really difficult to see. Therefore, it can be said to be more than adequate for uses such as searching the Internet and messaging.

Ease of reading sentences

Since the LG K10 (2017) displays characters smoothly, it can display them beautifully. Even when viewing small characters, the jaggedness of the character outline is not at a level seen during normal viewing and is displayed very naturally. Because of this, it is difficult for your eyes to become tired and make the phone suitable for reading long bodies of text.

The beauty of the overal screen

The LG K10 (2017) can display photos and videos beautifully. While people with good eyes can see jagged outlines when they look at the display up close, it is not really something of concern.

Ease of writing sentences

For the LG K10 (2017), the on-screen keyboard covers part of the screen when typing, but there is sufficient space for operation. Its size is suitable for entering long sentences, but I feel it may be a bit clumsy when editing office documents.

Does it have sufficient performance to make calls and send emails?

Whether it be a phone call, mail, or during a chat, the LG K10 (2017) provides smooth performance. Even when using the phone in demanding situations, you can use the phone comfortably since there will usually be no lag.

Does it have sufficient performance to search for things and using Social Networks?

It is more than adequate for applications such as using social media—like Facebook and Instagram—and searching the Internet. Sometimes, though, it may feel a bit slow.

Does it have sufficient performance to do other tasks while searching for things and using Social Networks?

There isn't any sense of inadequate performance even when several apps are used at the same time and there is frequent switching between apps. In rare cases, it may feel slow and the display may lag, but I don't think one will feel stressed during practical use.
