Conclusion: The VX8550 Chocolate fixes our primary complaints about its predecessor. In fact, aside from not raising the bar with Bluetooth 2.0, we can’t find anything to complain about with the VX8550. Sure, we can monologue all day about how Verizon neuters their phones, from the user interface, to the software you can run, to how you can use it with your computer. However, those aren’t flaws with the VX8550. The VX8550 works, works well, and does everything it advertises.
