LG 6000

The Good Compact and stylish; impressive battery life; solid audio quality; sharp color screen; built-in camera; USB ready; affordable.

The Bad No analog roaming; can store only 20 images.

The Bottom Line A real head turner, LG’s first camera phone for Verizon service has the performance to back up its slick design.

LG 6000

Aug 2003

Review summary

Until now, Verizon Wireless has lagged behind Sprint PCS and other carriers in the camera-phone arena. But with the release of LG's VX6000 and Verizon's Get Pix service, that will change. This sleek, strong-performing, and affordable handset ($150 after rebate) rivals other camera phones, and it should quickly become one of Verizon's best sellers.

Its silver-and-navy-blue color scheme gives this compact (3.5 by 1.9 by 0.9 inches; 3.9 ounces) flip phone a sporty, high-tech style, which is further accentuated by the mobile's three-line external OEL display. On the screen, you'll find battery-strength and network-signal indicators displayed in blue on a black background, along with a message icon, caller ID info (when available), and the time. When you turn on the phone, three Tron-like colored dots scroll across the screen--nice.

Below that external LCD, you'll find the small camera lens and the similarly sized mirror, which allows you to see yourself before snapping a self-portrait. Two volume-control keys and an alternate button adorn the side of the phone.
