Editors' top Verizon Wireless cell phones

by Mikhal12 / February 15, 2007 1:42 AM PST

To Kent German why did you leave out the LG VX8600 in the best Verizon phones when it is rated above the Motorola KRZR?

CNET editors' review
out of 10The good: 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 bad: 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 bottom line: 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 well to give the VX8600 a try.
