Review: LG Venus VX8800

 

Hey there's something you don't see on a cell phone every day: a split screen. Well sort of. Technically, LG's Venus handset has two screens:...

Voice-prompted driving directions from Verizon’s VZ Navigator are actually helpful; we didn’t get lost once. 2-megapixel camera yields surprisingly detailed images plus decent video capture. MicroSD slot located supports memory cards up to 8GB in...

Call quality is sub par: our review model yielded a hiss in the background at the high volume levels. Phone’s plastic housing feels as cheap as it looks

LG VX8800 Venus

 

The LG Venus VX8800 brings new touch-screen style to Verizon.

Luxurious feel. Innovative touch-screen interface.

Touch buttons are ever so slightly sluggish. Incompatible with one Bluetooth headset we tested. Expensive.

LG Venus review: LG Venus

 

LG Venus

The LG Venus has a unique dual-screen design with onscreen navigation controls that change layout depending on the application, plus it has vibrating feedback when touched. It also comes with a wealth of multimedia features, EV-DO support, plus great...

The LG Venus' touch screen is a bit gimmicky and takes some getting used to, and there aren't any touch-sensitivity settings for it. The camera has no flash and no self-portrait mirror.

The LG Venus is a beautiful slider phone with a great feature set, but we would recommend taking the time to get used to the unusual touch-screen controls.

LG Venus Review

 

The Venus by LG is Verizon Wireless's latest music phone and is the successor to the Chocolate lineup. It is a slider, and moves beyond the heat sensitive buttons of 8500 series by adding a pressure-sensitive dynamic LCD display. The camera has been...

LG Venus

 

Venus' half-touch/half-not display is an interesting idea that ultimately frustrated me more than it charmed me. The screens are beautiful and the morphing menus great, but I found myself wanting to touch the entire screen and not just the lower...

Beautiful display ; Context-sensitive menus ; Extensive feature set ; VZ Navigation works very well

Half a touchscreen sometimes feels gimmicky and frustrating ; Touch controls sometimes unresponsive ; Poor voice quality with unacceptable hiss on some calls ; Somewhat bulky overall

LG Venus Cell Phone Review

 

The LG Venus is a slick looking cell phone reminiscent of the LG Chocolate, but targeted at the user who doesn't mind spending a bit more for extra features. The key feature of the Venus that justifies the extra is a small touch sensitive screen on the...

LG Venus - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review

 

For the 2007 holiday shopping season, Verizon Wireless pushed out two innovative phones: the LG Voyager and the LG Venus. There are a lot of similarities between the two phones: both come with a touch screen and both have dual displays, both have a 2...

Excellent multimedia experience with fantastic audio and gorgeous screen for indoor use. V CAST videos play smoothly and better than on many other Verizon phones. Games play well on the phone and VZ Navigator has outstanding performance ;

Can’t see the screen outdoors. Pedestrian camera performance. No wired headset included

If you are looking for a stylish, strong multimedia phone, the Venus should be on your short list. The excellent audio, smooth video playback and crisp screen make for a very pleasurable multimedia experience. The phone has good looks and good build...

LG Venus Cell Phone Review - Manufacturer - Reviews - WirelessInfo.com - Cell Phone Reviews and Wireless Plan Ratings

 

The LG Venus from Verizon has the looks of a sleek business device and the functionality of a mid-range music handset. It's basically a Chocolate Vx8550 with a nicer-looking case and a small touchscreen where the D-pad array should be. In fact, the...

In the end, what is there to say about the Venus that we haven't explicitly dwelled on already? The Venus has definite problems, yes, but it performs its focal actions well. It's meant to be a good looking music player, and it's exactly that. How can...
