Excerpt: The LG VX8700 grabbed my attention as soon as I went into the Verizon store to upgrade my phone. There it was, shiny with a brushed metal finish and when you flipped it open, a bright screen, a 2.0 megapixel camera and just a sweet looking phone overall and while I didn't have good luck with the first LG VX8700 that I had, its replacement has been pretty much flawless since I received it almost a year and a half ago. Details The VX8700 is a slick looking phone.
Excerpt: I love this phone, but the pictures are often dark or discolored when using the camera. It is a fragile phone. Overall, I love the phone, but it could be better. I would, however, recommend it to a friend. It's got a great design. For the clumsy crowd, it's hard to find the numbers without looking to dial or text quickly.
Excerpt: I have gone through many phones, and by far this is my favorite. It is very durable and can handle almost anything. I Dont even need a case! Most of my phones are very sensitive to water damage but never had a problem with this LG. I do have some problems with the camera part. And had to take it in to tech services once. but besides that, this is a great phone.
the LG is sleek and simple connects to bluetooth easily

Excerpt: If you're an average cell phone user who is trying to get into the upper decks of technology the LG is for you. It is easy to navigate and connects/reconnects to the bluetooth easily. It is sleek and easy to handle and allows for great pics, speed dialing, and voice recognition. For the price it is a good value.
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.
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.
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.
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
