Interface and functions:

The LG Pop GD510 is equipped with interface that allows for certain personalization. For an instance, there is a theme that is exceptionally well suited for kids, like the one found on the Samsung Corby S3650. The main menu can look just like the one devices with S-CLASS 3D interface have or sport larger icons grouped in separate categories like LG´s previous generation of cell phones equipped with touch-sensitive screens.

The home screen consists of three pages:
-    Widgets – most of them are fairly standard plus there is one that gives quick access to all applications dedicated to social networks;
-    Livesquare – something like a register of your latest calls and messages, but with quite an interesting functionality (you can read more about it in our review of the LG GW520);
-    Your favourite contacts with pictures.

In step with today´s trend, the LG Pop GD510 comes with social networking programs (JAVA based) and you have applications for the three most popular – Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. The manufacturer has also included several improvements in the Pocket Apps category… and some of the programs like Weight tracker and Running mate are even useful.

We´ve got a good feeling about the texting capabilities of the LG Pop GD510. The handset comes with horizontal QWERTY keyboard that sports rather small keys, but is usable on the overall. We cannot say we have great expectations about web surfing, because the LG Pop GD510 does not support 3G or Wi-Fi and the internet browser is the same as the version found on the LG Cookie KP500 - it´s acceptable if you browse simpler pages.

We doubt the handset will deliver intoxicating snapshot quality, because its camera is equipped with 3-megapixel sensor without autofocus or flash. The available options will allow you to take a pick from several effects, change the white balance and turn the night mode but that´s all. Video capture is also limited and the maximum resolution is QVGA.

The audio player is quite nice – large album art, equalizer and easy controls. Unfortunately, the phone doesn’t come with 3.5mm jack and you will have to rely on either the boxed headset pair or get Bluetooth earphones.

Expectations:

The LG Pop GD510 has what it takes to become a popular affordable device. Its outer appearance and design did manage to impress us, because the phone is really compact and likeable and its interface is able to meet the needs of unexacting customers. By the way, here´s what we wrote to Santa this year “Dear Santa, could you make sure that LG comes up with a smartphone that looks like the LG Pop GD510 and get us one for Christmas? Pretty please? Thanks in advance!”
