LG Pop GD510
Advantages: Many features, good battery
Disadvantages: Delayed response screen
After having an old Nokia for as long as i could remember i thought it was time to upgrade into the modern era of phones! While an iPhone was out of my price bracket i wanted something similar and high tech. I chose the LG-GD510 and was satisfied with the result.
What are the phone's features:
2.5 Inch touchscreen
Edge Internet Connection
LG PC center software
At the time i bought the phone it cost £100 but at the time of writing can be purchased between £60-80.
Usability and problems:
The headphones suck the life out of the battery and uses the same slot as the charger so listening while charging is not an option.
The phone instead of using 3G uses edge a slower connection while it is fine in loading web pages, it makes watching videos on the phone nearly impossible.
The phones camera offers a 2 mega pixel output which can capture high quality photo's, with the offering of a mini SD card many many photos can be taken stored and transfered simply to a PC. However the video taken using the camera only supports up to 640x480 which is very low quality video, at least the sound capture is good.
The touch screen works in all aspects of the phone, however it is not instantly responsive with movements of your finger delayed a little. A minor problem yet cab get annoying at times.
Being my first LG product i did not know what to expect, however i have had no problems with he build of this phone, it has been dropped many times on a students exploits and survived to tell the tale, if that is not exceptional build quality i do not know what is.
The phone is small and slick in design, certainly not a bad looking phone. Comparable in design to a small iPhone4.
While this review may seem a little negative, there is no doubt this phone excels in what it does for the price. I guess it is a little like that disappointing child, i love it nevertheless. If you have a small budget and want a decent touch screen phone look no further than the LG-GD510.
Summary: A good fully featured phone, frustratingly slow response.
