I’ve ended my love-hate relationship with my Verizon Wireless RAZR phone and am in the honeymoon phase and loving my new LG VX 8600 phone. It’s slim, shiny, feels good in your hand and….well……it’s new. So far I can’t find anything I really don’t like about it. The screen is very good, possibly the best I’ve seen on any phone of it’s kind, with plenty of brightness to be viewed outside and nice rich colors. Battery life seems to be on par with other phones I’ve used on Verizon’s network. Reception has been good, although since the antenna is built into the phone case, it’s not quite as good as some of the other LG phones I’ve used.
I like the layout of the buttons and the menu navigation is easy and intuitive. I’m not a big fan of V Cast, phone cameras or other phone features, so I don’t have any comments on those things. The important features for me are solid reception, sound quality and good looks. This phone doesn’t disappoint.
