The LG GD510 Pop encompasses all that is good about a mobile phone. Effective functionality combined with aesthetically appealing looks and simplicity of use, have ensured the popularity of this particular unit. Compact at only 97 mm x 49 mm wide, this slim line phone is only 11 mm thick. In conjunction with its weight of only 87 g, it is surprising the amount of technology that is encompassed within it.

One of the primary features of any handset is its display screen, and this one provides an excellent quality 3.0 inch TFT resistive touch screen. The display screen is colourful in every way, due to its ability to display up to 256,000 colours within the confines of a 240 x 400 pixel screen size. An accelerometer sensor is provided which offers the ability to auto rotate imagery dependent upon the aspect and orientation of the display screen. The handset comes with both vibration and ring alert types, with the added bonus of being able to utilise MP3 ringtones. A speakerphone, as well as photo call functionality is included within the handset.

The handset comes with 42 MB of internal memory, with the option to expand this by making use of the available microSD card slot. The memory can be expanded up to 16 GB by making use of this feature. Class 12 versions of GPRS and EDGE are provided as standard, whilst microUSB and Bluetooth, which is version 2.1 with A2DP are also provided.

One of the key elements of this particular handset is its ability to integrate with social media elements, such as Facebook, MySpace and Twitter. With the current trend for social media at an all-time high this handset taps into that particular market and makes access and integration on the move, simplicity itself. One of the most interesting features of this particular handset is its optional solar panel for battery charging. In an age as we are in, in which global warming and climate change are ever constant topics in the media, this handset provides an alternative to utilising an electrical socket for charging its battery.

The handset comes with an impressive 3.15 mega pixel camera, which can also be utilised to provide QVGA quality video capture at 15 frames per second. The camera operates at 2048 x 1536 pixels and offers excellent snapshot capabilities as well as the alternative of video. A media player is also integrated within the unit and offers MP4/MP3 playing capabilities, and supports a wide range of audio and video file formats. In addition an organiser and voice memo also included as well as a stereo FM radio with RDS.
