LG K10 Vs. LG K8: K Series All Look Similar, Good For Mid-Range Budget With Sub-$200 Price Points

The start of Black Friday was pretty underwhelming

Consumers who are looking for phones within a mid-range budget may want to look at the K-series of LG like the K10 and K8 phones, which are now displayed at CES in Las Vegas. Not only these two phones have sub-$200 price points but it also includes even-lower-end K4 and K3.

Although reports surrounding the K-series is not much of a turner when it comes to the design but the specs however compensates much. The K10 packs an octa-core MediaTek MT670 chipset clocked at 1.5 GHz paired with 2GB of RAM and 16GB ROM with microSD expansion up to 2TB, Android Authority reported.

K8, on the other hand, is powered by the quad-core Snapdragon 425 MSM8917 clocked at 1.4 GHz with 1.5GB of RAM and 16/32 GB of storage with microSD expansion up to 32GB. Since K-series have upgrades across the board , its battery capacity also increases with K10 packing a 2,800 mAh and K8 with 2,500 mAh cell.

K10, however, is a little bit advanced as it gains a fingerprint scanner and USB OTG support compared with K8, which neither had of the features. Nevertheless, both devices run Android Nougat and sport a 13 MP/8 MP combination.

Other features include LG's Ultimate Selfie, Gesture Shot, face detection Auto Shot and soft-white selfie "flash," enabled via an illuminated screen when shooting using the front-facing camera. Those buyers who are rooting for better wide-angle when doing selfies could choose the K10 since it has a selfie shooter with a 120-degree wide-angle lens.

It easy to choose which of which in the K-series consumers would like to have when it comes to display because as the number gets bigger so is the display size of the phone. LG K3 is the smallest of the bunch at 4.5-inches, followed by the 5-inch K4 and K8, while K10 is the giant of the gang at 5.3 inches, reports Recombu.

For consumers with a tight budget, K-series are definitely for them as it gives thrifty consumers a choice of sizes and specs that suit their personal needs.
