Fareed's LG VX-8500-Chocolate review

30 July 2007
  • Summary: The Battery life of the chocolate phone is half decent. There are a lot of factors that come into play but overall the battery life could have been a lot better. The total talk time on one charge is around 5 to 6 hours, but battery life totally depends on how much you use the phone and what features you use.

LG Chocolate - VX8500

25 July 2006
  • Conclusion: The LG Chocolate is a serious fashion phone with great music capabilities. It’s not a smartphone but it does a great deal more than some other fashion and feature phones such as the Motorola RAZR. Its smooth look and the innovative touch-sensitive controls should earn LG some credit on design and the ability to take a chance at doing something new and different. If you are in the market for a cool looking feature phone, give the Chocolate a shot.
  • Pros: Pro: Attractive design that will turn heads. Great EV-DO reception in all levels of coverage areas and voice calls have nice quality and great volume. Nice screen and good 3D sound for multimedia that’s enhanced by the V CAST services. Reliable Bluetooth connectivity and A2DP support is a big plus for a music phone. The MicroSD card allows for an ample 2GB of memory expansion which isn’t something you can say about every feature phone.
  • Cons: Con: The touch-sensitive controls will take some getting used to and the Call End button separated from Call Send button will throw off some long-time cell phone users. Battery life could be better, especially for a music phone.

LG Chocolate VX-8500

31 January 2014
  • Excerpt: The dual-band (CDMA 800/1900MHz) LG Chocolate VX-8500 features an ultra-thin minimalist slider design. At first sight, people may confuse the Chocolate for a dark-colored iPod. Offering similar design elements, the boxy exterior houses a 2.0-inch (240 x 320 pixel resolution) 262K-color LCD screen, circular keypad and 5 way navigation control. Slid open, the numeric keypad is revealed along with the 1.3-megapixel camera lens on the back.
