Summary: Right after I got the VX-7000 they always seemed to releases new phones, with updates to the UI, and good looks. Of course, I also had to have this one. It was amazing, and a good phone that i always liked. this phone was replaced 2 times, hence the 4.5 rating. Phone No.1: It was verizon's first broadband phone. Back then being I worked at a factory, I needed a phone that i could also check my email on the go.
Summary: I have this phone before. People have written it is big and bulky; but have you seen the pda phones today? It has a large display and large buttons which help people to see the number they are dialing. It has a pull out antenna when signal is low. It has a 1-2 megapixel camera. The only down side is if you are loading files into the phone you will NEED THE USA CABLE. No sd memory card slot.
Summary: I like this phone because its big . The screen is big and so are the numbers. Its an older phone but im only using it for a back phone. I dont like that the phone does not have bluetooth on it. I dont know if i can download pics to the phone. hopefully i can. the camera is not that great its ok. still have to buy a charger for the phone.
Summary: From being a person that desire's to have something with consistency in there hand, its a great phone. Good weight and very user friendly to use. Make's you actually know you have something in your hand and not some cheap little dinky thing in your hand that you cant barely even feel. The screen is large for a flip style phone, and very easy to view what ever is on its screen.
Summary: I love the quality of the phones made by LG in their earlier years. Production was less rampant, so more quality parts were used to create the phone. For instance lets compare the LG VX8000 to the VX8360 (it's modern predecessor). The are similar in size, but the plastic feels much cheaper and lighter.
Summary: First impressions of the VX800 yield the words "clunky" or "boxy", but style aside this phone is hands off one of the best flip phones ever made. I have owned 3 of these phones over a 5 year period. My first died because it fell into 20ft of water while boating on the lake. My second died by falling off an ATV and getting crushed. I can only hope this one won't suffer the same consequences.
Summary: I LOVE this phone, so went to ebay to hopefully find another to have as back-up. I can afford to purchase any cellular phone I'd like, but still prefer this 2-year old LG 8000 to any of the new ones out there. The keys are user-friendly, the screen is large and easy to read, and the operations are straight forward. It has an interesting shape and a comfortable feel.
Summary: This is a replacement phone for my daughter. It's a little bigger than desired, so doesn't fit into pocket as easy. This particular unit however works very well, there hasn't been a problem since we got it. I like the larger than usual screen, the numbers on the keyboard are easier to see as well. It's a solid sturdy unit, that looks like it withstands the use by a teenager. Very happy with it!
Summary: I bought the phone because my other one died and I didn't want to get into another contract. The phone works well for what I use it for which is mainly just to make calls. I thought the price was reasonable and the phone is in perfect conditon. The only thing I dislike is the phone is a little larger and heavier than I like.
Summary: In a previous phone life... the LG VX7000 was my phone and organizer of choice - The VX8000 brings all of that and a speaker phone that the 7000 did not have and a camera with more mega pixels. It was brand new with all of the familiar menus. After the 7000 there was a short dalliance with a company provided Palm and then a BBerry both of which grew old fast and are now sitting on the office desk to be used a an index for phone numbers.
