It's a semi decent low price device as per iGyaan. Offered at a low price, the Galaxy Pop features Android 2.2. However, they rate the display quality below par as it lets users down on several counts. It has a plasticy in build and not great at looks. Performance wise, it's a decent device, but still not up to the mark. Also, the gaming performance is just average users won't get acccess to many games, which are blocked from the marketplace.
