LG's new phone is all about selfies. Thepacks dual front-facing 5-megapixel cameras that LG says can take 120-degree photos. There's also a 16-megapixel camera on the rear, which will offer all manner of manual controls while you're shooting video.
There's also a second, independent display sitting above the main, 5.7-inch screen. It's a 2-inch strip with a 1,040x160-pixel resolution. When the main screen is off, it'll display the weather and the time. When you're using the phone, the secondary display will host shortcuts to your favorite apps.
Check out this chart of the most important specifications to see how the V10 stacks up to its phablet competition. (UK readers should note that the Samsung Galaxy Note 5 is not available there.)
