So far, so good.

kelly04566, Ebay

  • Summary: I like the phone a lot. I've always had an Alltel phone, so the Verizon menus took a little getting used to. Taking pictures can be a challenge, the camera seems to have a bit of a delay so a lot of my photos turn out blurred. Large, clear screen. I read a lot of reviews about smudging on the outside of the phone because of its finish, but I don't notice it to much. I get excellent reception on it, even out in the country.

LG VX8700 Sleek Silver Phone

14 November 2009
  • Summary: The phone when i first got it was a little messed up. The divider was cracked which left the top loose. And the wrong battery came with the phone. But after some discussion with the seller., all parts were fixed and the phone works good. The design is empecable, with an all aluminum finish and flat panel buttons. Screen looks very good both in picture quality and size. Sound works good for both personal conversations and those on speaker phone.

Great Phone with flawed keyboard

nigei22, Ebay
11 July 2009
  • Summary: This phone is very very sexy. Its sleek has a shiny stainless steel exterior, but is prone to easily scratch. The external display is nearly useless and would have liked to see something done with that especially since its near impossible to read in direct sunlight. The other problem I have had bother me with this phone is that the keys are very flush and aligned closely together and when I go to hit the send button it may accidently hit the clear button.

Good Phone (Now discontinued)

brimar05, Phone Arena
27 January 2009
  • Excerpt: I'll keep this short and sweet since the phone is discontinued. This phone is basically just that - a "phone". There aren't really any great features for the high tech people. It's a solid phone, constructed well. My screen is wearing out after nearly 2 years - when I flip the screen open, I have to wiggle it around in order for the display to come on. But I think that's just "normal" wear & tear.
  • Pros: Looks good, Well Built, Good Reception & Quality
  • Cons: Camera is ONLY good in bright light. Period. No flash., Screen wore out., Front screen is not receptive to Photo CallerID

Great looks and a great phone.

skm4452, Ebay
9 October 2008
  • Summary: Pros: I have used over 25 different phone for Verison and LG phones have never disappointed me. The VX8700 is particular is one of my favorites because it stands out with its stainless steel body and sleek design. The ergomics and menu design is, like most LG phones, easy to navigate. It is not a very common phone which makes it kind of rare and interesting.

Long term use review

Greg Norman, Phone Arena
15 May 2008
  • Excerpt: I have had this phone for one year and it is a great phone. It is very, very durable (dropped this phone many, many times, and it still looks good). It has average reception quality, but has the majority of features I need. The poor memory card access is a bit annoying, as is the camera's lack of ability to zoom when it is set to the maximum resolution.

Bad News For Me

Elvis, Phone Arena
14 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Yes, its pretty. Yes it has a lot of good features but my story is a sad one. I had mine for two weeks and it was doing a lot of hanging up. It was in my leather holster and would ring so I'd reach to pull it out and the call would end. No, it wasn't because I hit the call silence button the call would end! So they would call back and ask what happened - I dunno - it just ended... just by touching the phone - I hadn't even slid the phone out yet.

LG VX8700

25 October 2007
  • Excerpt: This is a pretty nice phone. It was a big upgrade from my Kyocera swivel phone. I can't remember the model number. I had high expectations for this phone and it did not totally deliver. I bought the phone on the Verizon site before it hit the local stores, so I could not try it out before hand. The camera is awesome except in low light which effects any cell cam but I have seen better low light pics of the same scene from much lower cost phones that a few friends have.
