Conclusion: The LG CU515 is a fine phone with fast Internet access, versatile email and a decent camera. The problem is that the phone can’t be fully utilized until purchasing a handful of different accoutrements and services – some of which other phones provide right in the box. Despite its multimedia power, it’s best to look at the LG CU515 as a stripped-down phone – even though LG itself did the stripping.
Pros: Solid camera; fast multimedia downloads; versatile email
Cons: Stripped down phone; typically standard accessories cost extra
