LG VX8600


Verizon's best-looking flip phone tastes like Chocolate.

Terrific looks. Big, bright screen. Good voice quality.

Data service bug. So-so camera. Quiet speakerphone.

LG VX8600 - black (Verizon Wireless) review


LG VX8600

The LG VX8600 is a beautiful phone that's both elegant and slim. It has a 1.3-megapixel camera, a microSD card slot, stereo Bluetooth, built-in GPS, and support for V Cast Music and V Cast Video.

The LG VX8600's glossy finish is extremely prone to finger smudges. The touch-sensitive music player controls were tricky to handle, plus the phone's keypad is flush to the surface, resembling one large touchpad.

The LG VX8600 is a stylish successor to the LG VX8500 Chocolate, and, dare we say, a lot nicer in terms of navigation and feel. If you're wary of the Chocolate's quirky touchpad but still want a Chocolate-like phone in a clamshell design, you could do...

LG Chocolate VX8600 Review


The VX8600 is a combination of all the good the Chocolate had to bring, yet is in a slim flip phone that is the size of the RAZR. The body construction and looks of the phone are very stylish, the music player works well, camera is adequate, and call...

Slim design that is the same size as the RAZR ; Good Voice and Call Quality ; Internal Antenna ; Large External Display ; MP3/WMA Music Player ; MicroSD ; Bluetooth Stereo A2DP support

Internal Display is not QVGA like on the Chocolate ; Speaker on flip is low quality, causes distortion in Speakerphone and “thin” music playback ; Camera quality is not as good as other phones ; Keypad is flat and smooth with no tactile feel

The VX8600 is a combination of all the good the Chocolate had to bring, yet is in a slim flip phone that is the size of the RAZR. The body construction and looks of the phone are very stylish, the music player works well, camera is adequate, and call...

LG VX8600 Review


The slim and stylish LG VX8600 music phone from Verizon Wireless is the perfect answer for those pining for the multimedia features of the LG VX8500 Chocolate, but in a an ultra-thin and more conventional clamshell design

Style-wise, the VX8600's inspiring and elegant design will be the right match for those who really understand cell phone chic

LG VX8600 - Phone Reviews by Mobile Tech Review


When the LG Chocolate (VX8500) came out on Verizon, folks who like slider phones got to enjoy a music-centric device that had a silky-smooth surface and innovative touch-screen music and phone controls. Several flavors of Chocolate later, Verizon is...

Very stylish looking in shiny black with silver accents. Strong reception and very good EV-DO speed make the LG a good for V Cast fans. The touch sensitive music controls are easier to use than those found on the Chocolate. The camera is quite good...

It’s never a good idea to offer a music phone without giving the user a stereo headset. The screen resolution could be higher. Not a lot of internal memory to store multimedia files but you do have the expansion slot

LG VX-8600


LG's VX-8600 is the clamshell successor to their very popular "Chocolate" candy bar phone.  This dual-band CDMA cell phone for Verizon Wireless actually packs all of Chocolate's functionality into a sleek flip phone that I found easier to use and more...

LG VX8600


The LG VX8600 is a piece of garbage. It might look cool but, believe me it sucks. The keypad blows unless you have baby hands. Speakerphone is the worst, you can't hear anything. The best part is that you won't be able to make a call because it drops...

I've become very disappointed with the LG VX8600. Three members of our family have it. It drops my calls all of the time. One son had to get a new phone because it would not allow a charge. Another one has multiple problems. I'm off to Verizon ASAP to...

My lg VX8600 is pretty good. I got the phone about 8 months ago, and I've liked it so far. My only problem with this phone is the reception. Unfortunately, my phone does not get good service in my house. I frequently have calls dropped, and sometimes...

I had the lg VX8600 for about 2-3 months and it was nice at first but then I started getting a lot of dropped calls and no service and it was really frustrating. I noticed my screen was messing up too I couldn't read it so I took it in and they gave me...
