LG POP - Perfect little phone
LG Pop GD510
Member Name: JMayHough
LG Pop GD510
Advantages: Sleek and smooth, plenty of useful apps, easily accessed
Disadvantages: Very sensitive touch screen on the menu
This phone is very simple and easy to use with it's full touch screen display, with optional screen setting layouts and utilities such as a calculator, calender, and stop watch. It has recording options, a decent 3.0 megapixel camera and the familiar Bluetooth. There are four shortcut buttons at the bottom of the homescreen that lead to the menu, calling options, contact list, and messaging. On the menu screen you can tilt the phone sideways for a longer, landscape view of the apps so that you don't have to scroll sideways to find what you want (this can be annoying in case you click an app you didn't want whilst scrolling through).
Communication apps include:
Contacts, Recent history, Messaging, E-mail, Dialling, Contact search, Speed dials, and New message
Entertainment apps include:
Camera, Gallery, My stuff, Music, Games & Apps, FM Radio, Video Camera, and Muvee Studio
Utilities apps include:
O2 Home, Yahoo! Search, Alarms, Organiser, Memo, Voice recorder, Tools, & Drawing panel
Settings apps include:
Profiles, Screen settings, Phone settings, Call settings, Bluetooth, Touch settings, Connections, & Message settings
Each option in this menu comes with another drop down list of options to fully customise the phone the way you want it, and the sound quality is perfectly loud and clear. The LG POP is perfect for simple everyday uses such as texting and calling, taking photos and recording short videos. It comes with an instruction manual, headphones, brand new SIM/number, and a handy battery charger that is also a USB port for transferring photos, music, and videos from phone to PC or vice versa. It has a useful screen lock that displays the time and date and can be locked or unlocked by a small button on the top side of the phone.
This has been the handiest little phone I've ever had, and have had no problems with it for the year I've had it. I was cautious of LG phones after my previous phone had a nasty habit of crashing during texting or flipping it open and closed. But I'm very happy to say that I've had no problems with this phone yet - although the vibration option when on silent is pretty awful when resting on a surface. It's complete in a variation of colours and now at a low price.
Summary: A nice LG phone
