Conclusion: The VX8700 is a welcome update to the LG 8000-series phones. Its brushed metal exterior is unique and will stand out agents most other phones. The construction feels well made and should hold up with normal use, and is slim enough to stick in your pants pocket without it being too noticeable. The external display, though small, does its job well, while the QVGA internal display really shows off.
Pros: Brushed Metal Exterior and Monochromatic look, Slim Design, 262K Color QVGA Internal Display, 2MP Camera, Internal Antenna, MicroSD card slot (despite being under the battery), Bluetooth Stereo A2DP and AVRC support
Cons: Small External Display, Single Speaker is low quality and causes distortion at Medium to High Volumes, MP3 playback, Speakerphone, Ringtone, and Call Quality are all limited due to the low quality speaker, Noticeable “background” sounds during calls, Must remove battery to access the MicroSD card slot
