Meh. I had this phone for over a year and it did it's job. For a cheap phone I couldn't complain as it had some quite nifty features and if you aren't all up in technology it would serve you just fine, but the fact of the matter is that it just isn't good enough for the average user. Day-to-day you wouldn't notice major problems but that is because you are blinded by it being the only phone you have. It is OK and if you don't need to use your phone a lot then it's nice but I wouldn't recommend it if you want anything more.

Good little cheap phone. Certainly good value for money. My one refuses to play MP4s as well as having a strange battery. Sometimes the battery says it is nearly empty and when you unlock it in 5 min. it is full! The microSD slot is the biggest advantage. It also supports .jar/.jad games - like apps for iPhones. You can download as many as you want and many are free as well!Build quality 9/10Reception 9/10Call quality 10/10Internet 8/10Multimedia 6/10Camera 9/10UI speed 8/10Everyday usage 9/10Text input 9/10Display 10/10Battery 5/10

Hand Phone with one-button touch screen!
Since I first saw that I was very fond of these mobile phones, with wide touch screen display with a very Multifunction button,Affordable prices in Indonesia.
but just like LG GW300, he did not support the theme from the outside, only available two themes, but two themes that do not make us bored, because it looks very similar to the iPhone. :)Design 10/10Features 9/10Performance 8/10
- a very responsive touch screen
- Solar panels at the rear (optional)
- Resolution good camera
- batteries are less durable.
- Only available two themes.

voice being soft and not audible
LG GD510 which I bought recently.... The person at the other end of the line always complained about my voice being soft and not audible. I had to speak pretty loudly and at times had to keep repeating what I said. Previously I was using Nokia and had never faced this kind of problem, I am using same SIM card...Design 5/10Features 3/10Performance 3/10

I, do like the Pop. I like the design and I do think it will be suitable for tweens and teens. Expect, there is no Wifi. That is what I'm looking for. So instead I looked at another LG Cookie phone, and I found the LG Cookie Wifi (KM555). And I like the Cookie wifi. Although its a little bigger. And doesn't have a Solar Power battery charger, It does have wifi. So for you people that want to get a phone with wifi, thats still part of the Cookie series, and much cheaper then the Cookie Pop, I recommend the Cookie Wifi. It only PHP 7,990, In the Philippines.Design 8/10Features 6/10Performance 6/10
- Great Design
- NO WIFI!!!

A phone that is stylish. The only drawback to this amazing phone is that “The person at the other end of the line always complained about my voice being soft and not audible”. I had to speak pretty loudly and at times had to keep repeating what I said. The most important feature of any phone is its microphone should be perfect and that is lacking in this phone.Design 7/10Features 5/10Performance 2/10

A great phone that is stylish and also works extremely well for everyday use. The only drawback to this amazing phone is that there is no 3G or WiFi. Definatly recommended. Good interface and good controls that are made eaiser by the SmartKey that is the "home" button of the phone. Customizable themes are really spectacular and the apps are really quality done and work amazingly well.Design 9/10Features 9/10Performance 8/10

voice being soft and not audible
LG GD510 which I bought recently.... The person at the other end of the line always complained about my voice being soft and not audible. I had to speak pretty loudly and at times had to keep repeating what I said. Can anybody suggest me where is the problem. It’s in the handset or in network? Previously I was using Nokia and had never faced this kind of problem, I am using same SIM card...
I have set the profile to loud and observed same issue... I am not using Bluetooth headset. I use the handset for talking.
Thanks in advance for any suggestion....

LG Pop GD510
This phone is awesome. Just look like a smaller Iphone.Got a lot of apps for free on getjar.comI have to admit that sometimes it slowdown, it have some bugsbut its just minor bugs. I really like that phone it looks good, the keyboard is perfect.Some people are talking about the qwerty that bug and everything... they probably type in a rollercoaster cuz Im alway using the qwerty and never had any problems.pictures are awesome... high rez and perfect... just like a camera... for the price this phone is way better than any other phones...By far my favorite phone... (Im breaking 1-3phones per years so I tested a lot of phones)I like it!only thing is that the java applications are slow... like facebook goes faster on the web than their apps but I still prefer to use their apps cuz its well designed and works fine.Design 10/10Features 9/10Performance 7/10
- free apps
- included apps are good
- well designed
- Awesome interface
- light weight
- easy to use
- slowdown sometimes
- small (can be hard if you have big fingers... I still do mistakes typing keys around the one I want...)

The Faults don't make up for 'LG POP'
I really loved this phone when i first bought it, but soon after I started to have serious and extremly annoying problems with it. Problems such as:It freezes- Randomnly and after unplugging from charger.Battery life varies- it had awful battery life when i first started using it, but has gotten gradually better :)The qwerty keyboard jumps back or forwards, (randomnly,) when typing- Really annoying as the keypad is slow.It vibrated randomnly- even when vibration was completly off and especially one time where it vibrated,froze, flashed on and off adn wouldn't stop.Recently the touchscreen function is none responsive and to be honest i feel i've been cheated out of 80 pounds considering i bought it less than 3 weeks ago.It really is a great phone but it has so many bugs and things that happen to some peoples pops :@ they really need to sort them out! NOW! Thanks 4 reading :)JohnnyDesign 7/10Features 10/10Performance 4/10

Perfect touchscreen for basic needs.
I own LG POP for 4 months now and i am very satisfied.Design & dimensions :It is slim,lightweight and compact.Not like other touchscreen phones that look like a brick.The materials do not look cheep.Display screen :The 3'' inches screen delivers good contrast and vivid colors.It also does not need much pressure to execute a command.Menu :It's menu is easy to learn.Very user friendly.It was the first time that i bought an LG and i learned it quite quickly.Battery :The battery last for 2,5 days with regular use.Camera :The camera takes nice shots (for a 3.1 megapixels camera ) but only in day light.I did'n buy it for it's camera anyway.Video :LG POP does not record video with qood quality but if you put a converted 240x400 pixels video in it, it displays it with very nice quality Signal reception :No problem with the signal reception.Problems so far :None.Conclusion :The perfect choice if you need a slim lightweight touchscreen mobile phone with 3'' display and with not much money to cover your basic needs.If you don't need wi-fi,gps and high resolution camera,i strongly suggest it !Design 10/10Features 6/10Performance 10/10
- Slim & compact
- 3'' inches touchscreen display
- Good materials,look expensive although they are plastic.
- User friendly menu
- No firmware problems
- It doesn't have wi-fi and gps
- It doesn't have high resolution camera
- Low quality video recording

I picked up this phone a couple of weeks ago so that my husband and I wouldn't have to share a phone anymore, plus it was a special offer through Rogers. I love this phone. I have not encountered any problems with error messages, freezing or over heating. I love the touch screen and think its good quality for an inexpensive phone. The camera is great if you are outdoors or in excellent lighting. There is no flask. The 3 menu screens are cool. There is a drawing program like "paint" on your PC. So you can draw pictures for your friends/familys caller ID which is cooler than just a picture. The games are all demos, so once you've played a couple of times you have to buy it. The key pad is a bit small but works well for a tiny person like me. I read a lot of reviews before I picked this phone up and was worried, but I absolutely love it.Design 8/10Features 8/10Performance 8/10
