LG Pop GD510 Review
The LG Pop GD510 provides satisfying in-call quality. During our tests, the sound was loud on our end and the voices our callers were realistic even if a tad sharp. People on the other end of the line admitted they were pleased as well, but asked us to speak louder (but not to shout) - the problem is probably to do with the fact that the phone is really small and the microphone doesn’t get close enough to your mouth when you talk.

The battery provides 3.5hrs of continuous talk time and keeps the handset operational for up to 350hrs in stand-by. During our tests we used the LG Pop GD510 for almost two days before having to recharge it and frankly, we find the battery performance unsatisfactory, given this is a feature phone.

Is there anything else that´s important? Well, the handset comes with an affordable price tag, but still, it´s slightly more expensive than other popular models in the same price category, say, the LG Cookie KP500 or Samsung Star S5230. Of course, this is not unexpected - the phone has just been released on the market after all.

All told, the LG Pop GD510 is a really good and affordable feature phone equipped with touch-sensitive screen that relies on appealing design to win over people. Naturally, we would have liked it better if it came with more capable browser and richer multimedia functionality, but its major rivals, the Samsung Corby S3650, Star S5230 and LG Cookie KP500 don’t offer such features either.

If you happen to be on the lookout for an affordable handset with touch-sensitive screen, we do recommend that you consider the LG Pop GD510. We just love its design and the phone delivers decent functionality. Ultimately, we believe it´s among the best in its class.

Even though GD510 is missing some key features, it is very nice to see a beautifully designed and well-built phone that "shows exemplary craftsmanship". I am actually in the market for a more high-end phone, but unfortunately even in that category most products that are really lacking in this deparment.

I wish the LG POP was available here in the U.S.. AT&T should pick up on it. They won't I'm sure. Wotta shame. I'd go for this. Why? Simplicity, and good looks, speaking for myself. Many will agree, considering that it's a sales hit in many parts of the world, except (of course) the U.S.. Peace
