LG mobile phone reviews

Which? has more than 180 mobile phone reviews including many popular LG handsets:

The LG Pop has expandable external memory and is predicted to ship with an 8GB MicroSD memory card.

The LG Pop is a successor to the popular LG Cookie,  and uses LG's S-Class interface that allows multiple home-screens and widgets, giving a user experience similar to that available on many smartphones. 

LG Pop has solar charger

A notable additional feature is the ability to charge the LG Pop using solar power, courtesy of the optional LG PCB-100 solar charger battery cover.

Which? tech expert Al Warman said: 'The LG Pop looks like a great entry-level touchscreen phone, for consumers who don't need all the advanced functions of a smartphone. 

'And if LG have pitched the pricing right, and built on the success of previous Best Buy LG mobile handsets, this could be a Christmas bestseller.'

The LG Pop is also available from Carphone Warehouse on the following networks:

  • T-Mobile - free on tariffs above £15pm
  • Vodafone - free on tariffs above £20pm
  • Orange - free on tariffs above £25pm
  • O2 - free on tariffs above £25pm
