LG V10 now available from T-Mobile’s website, in-store availability coming October 30

lgv10tmobilefull

As expected, the LG V10 is now available from T-Mobile’s online store. Pricing is set at $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $25, with a full retail price of $599.99. If you’d prefer the JUMP! On Demand route, you can expect to pay $0 down and 18 payments of $25 apiece for the V10.

It’s worth noting that if you’d prefer to check out the V10 in person before pulling the trigger, T-Mo has said that it’ll be available in stores starting Friday, October 30.

T-Mobile has also kicked off a promo that’ll get you a $100 prepaid card when you buy the LG V10 and LG G Pad F 8.0. Simply buy one device on an Equipment Installment Plan, then buy the second on EIP within 30 days and you’ll get your prepaid card.

It’s also worth noting that T-Mobile’s V10 is eligible for a free accessory promo that LG is running. If you buy an LG V10 between now and November 15, LG will give you a 200GB microSD card, an extra 3000mAh battery, and a battery-charging cradle. To get those goodies, you’ll need to submit your contact info, a photo of your V10’s box and IMEI, and a copy of your receipt before November 30. More details on LG’s promo can be found here.

The LG V10 is the latest flagship phone from the Life’s Good crew, boasting a secondary 2.1-inch display above its main 5.7-inch screen that can show info related to the date, time, weather, and battery info as well as app shortcuts and playback controls. The V10’s got a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of storage, 16-megapixel rear camera, two 5-megapixel front cameras for wide-angle selfies, and Android 5.1. And on T-Mobile, the V10 includes support for band 12 LTE connectivity.

Are any of you going to pull the trigger on LG’s latest now that it’s available?

    Yup. Ordered.

    JoD on Friday. Can’t wait

  • PC_Tool

    Does LG’s promo work with JoD? Not sure you’d have a “receipt” with that…?

    • Rdaex

      Yea it does.. and why wouldnt you have a receipt?

      • PC_Tool

        Because it’s not a purchase, but a lease. You’re signing a contract, not buying equipment. If they give you a receipt, and it’s valid for LG, that’s great, though!

        (We actually already swapped my wife’s device once on JoD, but my recollection is somewhat foggy…the guy was trying to sell us everything in the store it seemed.)

        I almost hate to ask, and I’m not trying to be a d*ck here (really, I mean it), but is the “Yeah it does..” sourced?

        Not that my trust in anonymous internet denizens isn’t absolute or anything, but if you have anything pointing to an official statement from a T-Mobile rep or anything, I’d love to see the link.

        • dtam

          yes, I got a similar promo when I got the LG G4 w/ jump on demand. at that time it was free extra cover, battery and battery charger

          full disclosure, they did deny me at first saying I didn’t have the model number on the receipt but I resent them the JOD paperwork and then everything was kosher

        • PC_Tool

          First-hand knowledge is the best kind of knowledge!

          Thanks!

  • Riccardo C

    that is incorrect sir i called LG today and the promo starts on OCT 30th if you buy the phone today you will not be allowed to take in the deal.. tmobile reps called and as did I. it is really stupid

  • Verizonthunder

    Yep but will T-Mobile offer all the colors?

    • PC_Tool

      Black only, as I’ve heard.

    • zp

      SO ANNOYING! Where can I purchase the other colors?

    • JA

      T-Mobile will offer the black and creme colors in-store and online starting 10/30. White is exclusive to Verizon.

      • Verizonthunder

        Nice I desired the creme color

      • Ahmad Rasheen

        That sucks, I would have loved the ocean blue.

      • zp

        Ugh, really?! I wanted white or blue.

  • Nionx

    Tmobile only has black. I saw the phone today at my local store. Asked a rep and they brought it out from the back. Really nice though I’m not a big fan of LG UI.

  • Riccardo C

    disregard guys i guess lg had a change thier minds they changed the fine print to show oct 27th but this morning it was oct 30th

  • gardobus

    Friday can’t come soon enough.

  • Stone Cold

    I gotta have it

  • mingkee

    I will do an intense comparison between V10 and G4.
    Currently G4 is good and I have hard time to go up or not.

    • Verizonthunder

      4gb ram, large display, dual screen, lg promotion (200gb micro sd card and spare battery with charging cradle), Qualcomm antenna booster, more premium feel, removable battery, micro sd card slot, 64gb internal storage and dual front facing cameras for the best selfies.

      • mingkee

        The last thing is root.
        Those nasty ad are pretty annoying, and I want to do in-depth modification.

    • Ahmad Rasheen

      I was looking at the G4 too but with the promo that is being offered, the choice is pretty clear. Since you already have it, I wouldn’t think that trading up for the V10 would be really worth it for you, but for someone who is looking at both, the 200gb micro sd card and extra battery are a pretty sweet throw in on top of everything else.

  • David Thomas

    honestly i really want this phone but im iffy on the black color only thing….Itd be nice if they offered either the dark blue or the beige colored one.That i would go for in a heartbeat

    • Ahmad Rasheen

      The beige should be coming eventually, but black is reportedly the only color that will be available at launch.

      • zp

        When? Any idea?

    • zp

      Agreed. Not ordering black. Why would they stock the most boring color?

    • Joe

      Who cares about black. Most of us will buy an otterbox cover for it anyway and you won’t see any of the black lol.

      • Hodor

        Big reason why I am getting this phone tomorrow (JoD from a G4) is that while its not military grade rugged, it is strong enough to not require a bulky case. I’m hoping this phone ends the need for what was always a necessary evil….the big fat case to keep our phones safe. In the past phone colors didn’t mean that much since we did cover them with cases, but now we are seeing phones that don’t need them.

        • Jimmy James

          I’ve read that it has a military grade rating.

      • David Thomas

        lol true with some people. Dont get me wrong its still an amazing phone and a good looker its just having variety is always a good thing. Right now im trying to be patient and fight the impulse to get it tomorrow

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    I am assuming one can change the back case to white or a different color.

    • mingkee

      The buttons are another story.

  • Joe

    What happened to the free premium ear buds the other countries got? Did Tmobile swipe them from each box and resell them on their website?

    • thepanttherlady

      I believe in the European countries the earbuds have to be included by law.

    • mingkee

      It’s just my case.
      I have Bose buds (Samsung version) and it works 100% with volume control with G4, and it should be the same with V10.

  • Mottyengel

    So, I went into a store yesterday and ordered overnight after phone reps and store reps assured me if I order before 8, it would ship that day and overnight would arrive the next day.

    I get the email saying up to 2 business days. New rep tells me it could take a day just to process. I half thought it would ship same day anyway. But i still got them to refund shipping charge.

    Got the tracking number. Will be delivered today (Thursday). Had then hold at ups facility. Picking up at 8 am..awesome..

    I could really use that spare battery but it seems like it’s gonna take a while. Gotta submit everything on the 30th and just wait, like a rebate. Could take a couple months, no?

    • Thomas Lin Credible

      actually you have to buy the phone before the 15th the latest date to turn in the info is the 30th.. And it actually goes by real quick… LG had the same promotion for real g4 and I got the goods about a week later

      • Mottyengel

        Really? The site used to say “redeem (available October 28)”but now it says” (available October 30)” and I still can’t put in any info.

        Am I missing something?
        http://www.lg.com/us/mobile-phones/v10/promo

  • Jimmy James

    I think people complaining about colors, just want things they can’t have. This phone has everything people want, removable battery, microSD card, strong drop rating, etc, so they have to pick something to complain about. Black is the most popular color in phones, and T-Mobile is giving you two more colors, but people still complain.

    • watkins

      I seriously don’t understand that either. This phone is loaded with everything and the promotion with 200gb SD and extra battery is unbeatable. But… They don’t have it in creme… Gtfo and buy an iPhone you retards.

    • thepanttherlady

      Of course people are going to complain about the things they want but can’t have.

      I don’t necessarily agree that “black is the most popular color in phone…” because some carriers aren’t offering a choice. Even if that statement was 100% accurate, that is the reason some of us are complaining. It’d be nice to have something different or at least other options. Personally, I’m still getting this one through T-Mobile because of the LG promotion. I’m hoping other colored backs are offered soon!

    • I thought tmobile only had black?

      • Jimmy James

        Right. They want colors, just because T-Mobile doesn’t have other colors.

        • I noticed, you said T-Mobile is giving you two more colors is why I asked.

  • leighsydneychina

    It is time to get something to replace my Note 2. I saw the Note 5 and was gob smacked that it no longer has a removable battery, nor expandable memory. These are the reasons I, and many others, bought it.

    But now I see the new LG. Exactly what I am looking for. I carry a spare battery in my computer case so I can just swap them over. It is a really cheap solution to the problem of running out.

    This phone looks the absolute goods to me. Great stuff LG.

  • I’ll be going in store Saturday to play around with it first

  • Erick

    Does this work for online only? Or can you redeem the promo items in store when you pick one up?

    • thepanttherlady

      The promo is through LG directly so you cannot redeem in store.

  • Linda Diefenbach

    Not happy…Ordered at 6:30am .. 2 seperate ordered.. since you cannot order 1 order for 2 lines. 2nd order got screwed up. Had to call 3 times. 2 hrs later..finally fixed. And today the 2nd order has shipped and the first order is on backorder until further notice. Called. Dont make sense. 1st order on back order, 2nd shipped, and in stores tomorrow..Y is the 1st order on backorder…MAKE NO SENSE!

  • JBLmobileG1

    I was seriously thinking about picking this up and using my 2nd jump from my Lg G4… but then I was thinking… I just picked up the G4 not too long ago… I have the extra battery and charger and the free 128gb card as well. Not to mention the fact that the phone itself has been good to me. No serious issues and the battery life has been Amazing… especially in stand by mode. I noticed that this phone and the LG V10 have about the same usage however the standby time, according to Tmobiles website, is a huge difference between the two. Error perhaps? All in all… as much as I wouldn’t mind the extra screen size… a bit more memory in all areas… and the enhanced video capability. The LG G4 is still one amazing phone. In fact mu only grip is the video when zooming in… the screen has a mind of its own and moves around and looks blurry. Not surw if this can be fixed in the future within the software or not.

    • JBLmobileG1

      Aaahhh heck. I jumped! I figured for a penny more a month and getting an all around bigger and better phone that is like the G4’s BIG brother… it was a no brainer. It offers all the right features that I could want in a phone. Even though I Love my G4…. this phone is and will be that much better.

  • emcdonald75

    I really hope the gaming performance is good enough. Someone was telling me that some games are slow/frame rate drops or the particle/special effects of some games are absent to maintain adequate gaming performance with the Snapdragon 808 chip with the Adreno 418 GPU. Can anyone confirm gaming performance or are there any gaming reviews of the LG V10? I thought the performance would be the same as the LG G4; though better, because more ram is included. 4GB > 3GB.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I wish someone would do a comparison with the LG G4 vs. LG V10 as far as gaming and benchmarks go. True the LG V10 has one extra gb, however, what if that is being used for the extra screen and the larger screen size? Isn’t that a possibility? Probably also used for the video enhancements as well with the video camera.

    • NardVa

      I’m guessing the gaming should similar to the G4 since both phones have the same 808 Snapdragon and 418 Adreno combo. What worrries about the V10 is battery life. The G4 has a 5.5 inch screen with a 3000mAh battery. The V10 has a 5.7 inch screen with the same 3000mAh battery. How can you increase the screen size and not increase the battery size. I’m guessing battery life want be better on the V10.

  • Does ANYONE have the model number of this device?

  • mustang8918

    Sherm, it’s the LG-H901.

  • zp

    Does anyone know if stores will have the beige color on Friday?

  • Truegerman

    I’m very satisfied with my G4!

  • mustang8918

    zp, none of the US carriers will have beige for now. Tmobile has black, At&t has light blue and black, and Verizon has white and black.

    • zp

      ah well, i guess i’m going to wait then.

    • zp

      anyone know of importers of the international version at a reasonable price?

  • NardVa

    If you are gone get the V10 phone, it’s best to wait. The G4 was released less than 5 months ago at $600 and now the phone can be had for $380 after rebates. The V10 is now $600, but I’m pretty sure this phone will under $400 by February. LG phones drop in value so fast, it doesn’t make sense to EIP, lease or buy this phone straight up at release.

  • emcdonald75

    I cannot believe Verizon has the White/Gold LG V10!!! Come on T-Mobile! I really wanted that color!!! Now it would be foolish to leave a carrier for the color of a phone, but I was mad of enough this morning to at least think about it.

    • emcdonald75

      The Verizon version has every LTE band supported by T-Mobile except for LTE band 12. Dang!!!

      • zp

        What does band 12 get you on T-mo?

        • emcdonald75

          Band 12 does not get you T-Mobile but it is one of their LTE bands. The extended range LTE is band 12; unfortunately, it is not available in my area. Though I only want phones that carry my carrier’s full LTE support.

        • zp

          Sorry, that’s what I meant. Is it just expansive rather than the entire LTE experience in an area?

    • zp

      Agreed. That was the exact color I wanted too. So very infuriating.

  • taxandspend

    Corporate store near me doesn’t have them. I wonder which stores do have them on launch day.

  • GersonT1000

    I was very close to getting this phone, but I went to the store and tried it out it was just too big (too wide). I really wish they would stop making flagship phones so huge, or could provide smaller versions alongside like Sony.

    By the way, there’s something that really pisses me off about these operator stores. When an iPhone (and lately a high end Samsung phone) comes out they are sure to have the phones displayed very prominently. However, I went to a couple of stores and none of them had the V10 on display at all. This is usually the case with non-Apple and non-Samsung phones, and it needs to stop.

    • thepanttherlady

      Agreed. If a customer doesn’t know what phone they want when they go in, you can be sure they’re walking out with an iPhone or Samsung. Truly irritates me.

      • emcdonald75

        Luckily my store has the LG V10 on display. Well, they had the phone in the back and when I called he said he has to put the phone on display. But no models are available for sale. I will play with the phone this evening to ensure that it is not too wide or too tall. If it is too wide or too tall, I am going to order a Samsung S6 Edge 128GB…unfortunately.

        • GersonT1000

          Yeah, I was able to see one only because the rep went to get one from the back when I asked about it.

        • emcdonald75

          It’s like LG gets no respect. I wish LG used the Snapdragon 810 in the LG V10 and implemented a theme system like Samsung. The UI doesn’t seem so impressive.

  • Carlos

    Will this phone be better than a Samsung s6? that is what I currently have and it is driving me crazy. I can be in my desk at the office ( I have been here 8 years) and out of the blue I get a notification that I have a voice message ( so sometimes does not ring when a call comes in, it does not even show a missed call), This happens randomly but makes me wonder how many people do not bother to leave a voice message, which means I am losing business. Meanwhile, I also carry a second phone, a Nexus 5 that I purchased from a Craigslist guy last year. I never had a problem with that little phone, so I am wondering if I should do a warranty claim( and get another s6 with the same problem or worse), or just move into this v10 phone, that to me looks like a nexus 5 in high octane steroids!. feedback will be appreciated.

    • v10SoundsGood

      If it were me, Id get a v10. I got a Note 4 because I didn’t want an S6. I will be moving away from Samsung next phone.

      • Carlos

        Thank you for the input guys!

    • zp

      Yes. Far better.

    • Dqnny

      I’ve had both the s6 edge and the note 5 and I am enjoying the V10 way more than I did with the other phones. Feels great and looks great….just overall a great phone.

      • Itsallgood

        That’s good too hear. I hope LG kicks some Samsung bootie.

  • Eric

    Well picked up today had the 6 edge plus which I traded with jod and this phone is great. I put on a Screen protector but wondering anyone that has the v10 are u planning on putting on a case. I just love the feel of this phone I really don’t think it needs a case.

    • JBLmobileG1

      I picked up a smoke black Ringker case just to add extra protection even though this phone doesn’t really need a case. But it still shows off the phone itself and through Amazon, $10.99 isn’t too expensive for a little extra scratch protection. I guess I picked it up for that just in case scenario. Same with the screen protector although I wish the protector covered the entire front and not just the screen with a cutout for the camera. What type of screen protector did you get and does it cover the entire front screen?

      • Eric

        They only had one Screen protector. Mine covers everthing but the 2 cameras.

        • JBLmobileG1

          Thats cool… and it was available at the Tmobile store? Is it just your typical screen protector or a glass one?

        • Eric

          Yep when I went to the store it basically was the only accessory they had for the lg10

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          if i may ask Eric does that screen do the job as in clear quality?

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Anti-Finger Print one at least that’s the one I saw at T-Mobile

  • emcdonald75

    Well I am at the store but the salesman is refusing to sell me the LG V10. He wants me to buy an iPhone or a Samsung. He keeps throwing the LG G4 in my face because of the $100 promo and I told him that I don’t want that so now I have been waiting several minutes, 30 minutes now, to see another salesperson. This is ridiculous!!!!

    • emcdonald75

      Well the second salesperson just left the store telling me another will help me after telling me that I can get any phone in the store $0 down. So another rep was going to tend to me but she had other customers. Sp o waoted evwn longer and became frustrated and left the store.The experience was so awful, I am thinking about joining Verizon. I wonder how can I report this to John Legere. Also, if he wants an Uncarrier move, he should find a way to have these phones keep some semblance of a trade in value. My Galaxy Note 4, a $750 phone, is now only worth $160 in trade value. That’s ridiculous. John Legere should uncarrier that.

      • HumorPrint

        We just went in and said, “yeah we want the new Lg V10 and they sold us 2. Maybe you do not have authority when you speak.

        • emcdonald75

          And maybe I was dealing with some dumb, stupid reps. They do exist, you know?

      • Allen Alberto Enriquez

        if I may ask are you in the jump 1,2 or JOD? because to me it seems JOD would be way more for you.

        • emcdonald75

          I went to another store and I now have the LG V10. I was on Jump 2 but now I’m on Jump on Demand. The lady told me that there have been numerous complaints about the workers at the store and even told me to contact the manager to report my experience.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          I hope you did contact manager that sounds very unpleasant we don’t want people on T-Mobile

        • emcdonald75

          Yes I did. But I’m sure nothing will be accomplished. Plus I’m satisfied. I have the LG V10, I moved to JOD, and I signed up for the LG Promotion. I love the phone btw. The speaker is a little quieter than I hoped but everything else flies. It is so fast. I have had Samsung phones for so long, I didn’t know Android phones can move so fast. This is my first LG phone. I might JOD to the LG G5 when it is released. The UI is not as bad as I thought. I have not played any games yet but overall I’m satisfied because I no longer have to deal with stutters and lag and retarts like on Samsung phones.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Fascinating! That’s all that matter that your are satisfied! Did you end up getting a 66 store promo? Because my store at Chico ca has one still running. Did you do the bundle deal that the store has if any? Welcome to LG family we’re Voice matters as far as I ‘ve been with LG since LG G2 came out!

        • emcdonald75

          No. I didn’t know anything about any promo. The lady at the store told me she didn’t know anything about the phone or has she even trained on it yet. She asked me questions about the phone. When she began to activate the phone, she was playing with mine and said that she loves it. Both reps told me that they will play with the phone later because they loved the look and the feel of it.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          Hmm it must mean it’s regional based then. Odd I thought that all T Mobile’s or at least all T Mobile stores do the same credit promotions.

  • Jay

    Quick question I had every carrier sprint prices are reasonable with good service in my area cannot speak for others. Verizon, AT&T prices are expected to be expensive because you know what your paying for. T-Mobile use to be the cheapest of the bunch why are their prices starting to get steep. I haven’t had T-Mobile in years so I honestly can’t see why they went up in price.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      I am not sure if you are aware that you can put accessories on the EIP, it’s a killer deal right now rather then paying so much up front it is spread across 18-24 months which is no big deal to me since it is only $10 a month! the phone monthly $26.88 so for both Accessories & Phone $36.88 a month! that is way more manageable for my upfront budget.

  • Will

    Bought the phone and I love every bit of it but all of sudden phone went completely dead and it wont even charge at all man sooooo pissed off gotta call the store tomorrow.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      Charge it over night! Usually all devices for the first time require full charge!

      • Will

        Phone was on when I got it and I was using it for several hours and battery went completely dead so plug the charger and was charging upto 30% than phone just died on me since than tried to leave it on charge for over 30mins still no sign of chargering at all.

        • Allen Alberto Enriquez

          it will do that, it’s beyond stand by mode, which means it could take double the time, I have no doubt you are the champion at these have patience on your awesome GZMO. Hit me up if any happens!

        • Will

          I went to the store this morning and got replacement phone and it’s staying on until now so far so good.

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Love my purchase bought in store great bundle deal worth bundle deal 250 with payments as low as $10 a month! Got $66.00 of credit for switching to JOD and getting additional for trading in a phone which I believe more then $25! I walk out shocking so happy everyone was looking at the amount of accessories I had beautiful choices tile, JBL headphones, 48 hour backup batterie, red case, and outstanding customer service! I paid only $18.89! I wish I bought the pop thing that’s goes on back of phone. Will I guess I will buy that when I purchase iPad pro 128gb 4g lte!

  • ljg500

    Just picked mine up last night. Screen is stunning. Sound excellent. Performance smooth. Quick charging. Overall design and apparent build are excellent. Promo deal significantly adds to the appeal. Second screen is somewhat useful- a decent addition. Just starting to explore phone’s camera and video. T-Mobile price is excellent as compared to other carriers.

    • Allen Alberto Enriquez

      did you end up finding a protective screen for it I had a hard time finding name brand like zagg?

  • Allen Alberto Enriquez

    Very nice! That’s like the best pick!

  • Phil

    Checked it out today great device but not for me unfortunately.
    I did 20 speed test finding V10 Download speeds 3 – 6 Mbps slower then Galaxy S5.
    V10 has much much slower GPS lock – sats available as well.

    Ive been rocking S5 for 18 month love the device but man I need something different.
    Removable Battery & SD card are MUST HAVES What does a smartphone geek turn to?
    grrr Note 4 is a no go due to GPS fail.

    • PC_Tool

      Never did the comparison for LTE speed, and GPS locks almost instantly for me.

      Did you do the GPS test indoors?

      Bought it on Sunday. The thing flies. Much better than the G4 I had previously and easily rivals the speed of stock android on my Nexus 6.

      Can’t wait to see 6.0 on this thing.

      • Phil

        Gps test in store both devices had sky view.
        oh yeah speedy device display amazing I want one!

        Lots of XDA V10 postings touching on bad radio performance.
        Maybe some bad first batch , if not hope LG releases update soon.

        • emcdonald75

          I can tell you that people say that cannot hear me all that well on the LG V10, and I lose LTE signal a lot. I literally stay on 4G during the day but it has not bothered me because it is still fast. It switches between 4G and LTE if I simply put it in my pocket. I don’t know if that is some battery saving feature. But I have noticed it.

          yeah your not alone many postings describing such experience.
          It may be defective device , If you I would swap device out for new within 14 days of purchase

          If issues still present hopefully LG steps up with fix asap

        • emcdonald75

          If I am having problems, am I still required to pay the restocking fee?

        • Phil

          NO restocking fee charged for swap to new within 15 days of purchase.
          If you decide to return with no device swap restocking fee may kick in….it really depends on how cool store manager is.

        • emcdonald75

          Thank you.

  • Sad that tmobile only has the black one though. They had some cool colors in the press photos.

      I would like to know how you like that phone especially compared to a note 4. Also, in lte download speed, how does it compare? Is it slower as Phil suggested?

      • thepanttherlady

        When I get it, I’ll let you know what I think but won’t be able to compare it to the Note 4. I stopped buying Samsung phones with the Note 2. :)

        • WantUserExperience

          I kind of wish I had not recently bought a Note 4. Wouldn’t mind having that LG.

  • emcdonald75

    I love everything about the LG V10!!! This is my first LG phone and it is great. I want to see more V10 like models, but I want a faster CPU/GPU; brighter, better screen (whites appear a little bluish, not so bad, but noticeable); and a louder speaker or a front speaker(s). Not to say the V10 is bad, because I love it, but those things would make it an awesome device. I hope the LG V10 gets the advance messaging features that was given to the Galaxy phones. Also, what is up with Facebook? I cannot sync my contacts with Facebook anymore. On my Galaxy Note 4, the Facebook profile pics would merge with my contacts, but now, I cannot get that feature to work. Is this application specific or is it something with the LG V10?

    • NicePhone

      You might have a defective phone. You should perhaps exchange it during your 15 day period.

    • Bradley Karas

      You won’t be able to sync Facebook with your phone anymore…SO I changes with new update block that. Sorry…I just got my phone and I’ve been dropping calls left and right over VoLTE

      • emcdonald75

        I was able to sync my Facebook contacts but I had to download an old Facebook apk, install and let the sync happen and then update the Facebook app. And it works fine. I think that is more a Facebook problem than a LG problem. But the drop calls over VoLTE is definitely on LG, as well as the low volume earpiece, low speaker problem and poor reception/WiFi disconnects.

  • johnnyxlayer

    lg smartworld isnt working for me i keep getting errors is anybody else having the same problems

    • emcdonald75

      I’m having problems too. I just never clicked on it until you mentioned it. It says “Service not available.”

      • johnnyxlayer

        yeah i have had problems since day one im wondering if its a defect

        • emcdonald75

          I don’t know. I hope LG releases a software update for some of these issues. I love this phone too much to take it back. Also why does some YouTube videos go full screen and show just video only and some will show the video with the battery/clock and a black space where the on screen buttons usually are located? This is my first phone with on screen buttons so I don’t know if that’s the way things work or not.

  • johnnyxlayer

    im not sure i dont think i have had that problem

  • emcdonald75

    So I am taking my LG V10 back for another because I think I might have a few issues. But I love the phone overall. The screen appears bluish (the whites anyway) and it is not very bright. The speaker is weak. The WiFi signal is weak. People report that they cannot hear me on the phone, so there may be reception issues. Also, I have text messages that fail to send at times, but I don’t know if that is network related or phone related. I was hoping that LG came out and said that a software update can fix some of the issues. People have told me that the first batch of phones could have been problematic because I did buy it the day after launch. I also just realized that you have to touch the metal sides of the phone in order to get the fingerprint scanner to work. So cases have to be LG approved. That is a major design flaw.

    • JBLmobileG1

      Hopefully it’s not a bad batch and just software related so they can easily send out a fix. I should be receiving mine within the few days so hopefully it’s not a defective unit anyways.

      • emcdonald75

        I really could not believe about the fingerprint scanner until someone told me online. I tried it myself and that’s true. You have to touch the sides for it to work. I haven’t put a case on my phone yet because I was waiting for Amazon to send it.

        • JBLmobileG1

          I ordered a Ringke case from Amazon but am still waiting on the phone to come. There may be away to get it to work with that case but I am just going to use it as a temp until UAG releases a case. They already know about the case issue so if LG can’t fix it with a software update at least UAG should have a case that will work perfectly with it.

        • mingkee

          This is physical problem because the case blocks the contact between the metal sides and your hand except the case is made with electric-conducting material.

    • Bradley Karas

      I just bought mine and am returning it already with a host of issues. Total reception issues, dropping calls like crazy! I would just be holding the phone in my hand and the screen would come on like I was tapping it…was driving me nuts! The speaker sucks, the screen is so low lit that I can’t see it with sunglasses on and living in Florida that is really problematic. It has trouble switching to Band 12 and spots where my Note 5 was boss (got it for free) the V10 was going straight to HSPA

      • emcdonald75

        I was going to take mine back for the Note 5 but I think I am going to keep it and use JOD for whatever new is coming out next year. I’m sure something good will be out in the next 3 or 4 months. I hope Samsung brings back the microsd card slot even if they keep out the removable battery. But yeah I have some very weird reception issues. WiFi will stop working and calls drop like crazy. I’m hoping a software update can fix these issues. The speaker is very low as well and the earpiece must be low because people tell me they cannot hear me. This is my first LG phone but if these issues are not resolved, this might be my last.

      • CJakes ™

        I got the LG V10 about 2 months ago and it drops all my calls 6-10 times! I was sent a replacement, but it does the same damn thing! This is really pissing me off because they talked me into this piece of crap! I wanted another Galaxy note. I had a Note 2 that still worked beutifully, now I just have a headache!

  • I have had mines since Nov 1st, it is a big phone, a little taller than the Note 3 I came from, and the side guards make it wider, I understand their purpose, but my have around my thumb was sore after first day of use, guess was using the muscle in a way I haven’t before. The weight of the phone doesn’t bother me. Surprisingly the buttons on the back didn’t take long to get used too, they are in a convenient place to how I hold the phone. The things I have had to get used to is not having a physical home button.

    It’s a good phone, especially at the price with the promo. It ran a little hot when CPU is being used intensively, when I was installing all my apps, have the text restore running for 15+hours. The only problem I’m having is getting my old texts to this phone. I’ve usually used MyBackUp Pro in the past, flawlessly. But when I go this phone, at first MyBackUp wasn’t finding my backup, so I used the 2 popular backup/restore texts apps in the play store. I am missing messages, they aren’t in order, and the MMS are not in the correct positions in the text threads. I’m going to factory reset and try to get MyBackUp to work from the get go. Never had this problem going from Samsung to Samsung or from HTC to Samsung. I’ve spent the last 2 days trying to get my texts on this phone. I don’t know if it’s an issue with LG’s software

  • mingkee

    I came from G4. Frankly, performance doesn’t have much difference from G4 from Quadrant, Antutu, to my feeling.
    Strangely, mine has yellow-green tint and I found many floor models (including T-Mobile and ATT version) have same tint.
    The big plus is the banner which make toggling apps in a fly (no hitting home button).
    My Spigen case should be coming soon, and I noticed the issue with fingerprint sensor, and I soon realize the reason why it has stainless steel on the sides. The case itself is an insulator except the material is made with electric-conducting compound.
    Here is my solution: use aluminum foil. make a little strip with double-sided tape and put the strip by the bottom which can make a contact between the metal sides and your hand.
    Another interesting is the audio DAC. Sound is definitely better when playing with 192kbps ogg files. Sound has more depth and you can hear “air” which I never experienced before even G4.
    Wi-Fi reception (5GHz) isn’t good as other phones/tablets and it often loses reception.
    Speaker isn’t loud as G4 as G4 has the best sounding and loudest speaker. V10 can’t come even close.
    The height is taller than G Stylo even the main screen size is the same.

  • johnnyxlayer

    does anyone else have light bleed on the ticker display

    • emcdonald75

      I have noticed it but it doesn’t bother me as much as not being able to use the fingerprint scanner with a case on. I have also noticed slow response or lag when apps are updating or Google Play will crash when apps update. Weird. I really think many things can be fixed with a software update, except for the processor and the light bleed of the second screen. I think LG had enough time to get the Snapdragon 810 ready for this phone or use the SD 808 but influenced Qualcomm to change GPUs to the Adreno 430. I am started to lose trust in Qualcomm. If the Snapdragon 820 doesn’t deliver next year, I might not ever buy a phone with a Snapdragon processor and this might force me to Apple. The thought sickens me because of the lack of customization and the numerous restrictions with iOS. I’m pushing for the new Kirin chipset or Samsung chipset. Qualcomm literally thought of SnapDragon and made the chipset breathe fire. Stupid.

    • Sean Comer

      Yeah but it’s not THAT annoying.

      • thepanttherlady

        Mine is horrible! I’m having G2X flashbacks. :(

        • Sean Comer

          Never had the g2 coming from iPhone 6s looked at galaxy s6+ to me this is waay better so light bleed that I can only see in a dark room with the screen off does not annoy me like say, non removable batteries or non expandable storage plus I don’t really need to cover it with a fugly case.

  • johnnyxlayer

    im not sure if my v10 is the only one with this problem but is it me or is the earpiece really low during calls even at full volume

    • Sean Comer

      turn off WiFi calling should be okay.

  • rwmgd2

    No Marshmallow Android 6.0 upgrade? According to the official T-Mobile Marshmallow update page the LG V10 is NOT listed to get the upgrade.

    https://support.t-mobile.com/community/phones-tablets-devices/software-updates

    This is quite disappointing if it is true.
