LG Shine II GD710 Review
The Shine II is a decent performer when it comes to calling quality. Voices sounded crystal clear and audible with barely any background distortion on our end. Our callers stated that our voice had a normal tone with also some static sound. When using the speakerphone, we did notice that voices sounded more muffled and definitely strained when set on the highest volume.

Using the same battery (900 mAh) found on the original, the LG Shine II GD710 managed to survive 5 days of normal use before requiring a recharge. That’s a respectable figure when you compare it to other similar phones. We had the brightness set to the maximum and used the phone primarily for calling and texting with the occasional web surfing. LG has the phone rated for 3.3 hours of talk and 300 hours of standby.


If you really had to pit the LG Shine II GD710 with the original, you’ll be hard pressed to see any impressive features between the two. Although it still embodies some of the fashionable appeal its predecessor exuded, it doesn’t reinvent itself to truly be considered as a worthy successor. When 2 years flies by, we would’ve expected more out of the LG Shine II GD710 – we’re just left with an uninspiring handset that passes by as being nonchalant with its name.
