Question- How is Design and Build Quality?

Answer- The LG K10 LTE does not boast of the best of the specifications but it has some impressive design features. LG K10 has a 5 inch display with a good looking curved screen. It does not look like a 2.5D curved display but the two sides have a small curve to make the sides feel softer. It is totally made up of plastic with shiny edges painted in chrome that looks good. Back has a rubber like stripe texture that makes it easy to grip in one hand.

It feels good in hand and one handed usage is good on this smartphone. The back cover is removable and the battery is also user replaceable.
