Summary: If it's the video experience you're after, the LG VX9400 is the better of the two original V Cast Mobile TV phones. But if making calls is just as important, then you may find the LG VX9400 a bit tedious to use.
Pros: A slick-looking handset that supports Verizon's V Cast Mobile TV service, the LG VX9400 offers excellent video performance and call quality. It also comes loaded with a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth, a microSD card slot, and EV-DO compatibility.
Cons: The LG VX9400's swivel display isn't ideal for making phone calls. Also, its speaker volume is rather weak.
Conclusion: A very nice offering from LG and Verizon, and an exciting one since the LG VX9400 is one of the first two US TV phones. Even if you're not in a metro area covered by Verizon's new TV service, the VX9400 is worth a look thanks to its good call quality, strong reception, great display and overall good call quality. If you're looking for TV but want the smallest possible phone, the Samsung u620 wins, though we still prefer the VX9400's larger and better display.
