LG VX4500 (Verizon Wireless)

The Good Solid speakerphone; expanded voice commands; easy menu navigation.

The Bad Ho-hum design; no MMS messaging; bulky desktop charger; uneven battery life.

The Bottom Line While it's missing a few key features, the LG VX4500 should please casual cell phone users.

Review

LG VX4500 (Verizon Wireless)

Review summary

The LG VX4500 is a bit of a mixed bag. Though it has a bright LCD, strong voice-command options, and a high-quality speakerphone, its design is not the most inspiring, and it's missing such important features as MMS support. The phone is well priced at $139 (with no contract), but for those willing to forgo a speakerphone, the LG VX4400 might be a better and cheaper alternative for Verizon's service. The stocky, silver LG VX4500 doesn't go far in the style department. Looking much like your garden-variety flip phone, it has a bulbous shape that makes it a bit wider (3.5 by 1.9 by 0.9 inches; 3.7 ounces) than many of its counterparts. Though the handset fits in bigger pockets, it feels comfortable against your face when you're talking. However, the external monochrome display--showing time, date, signal strength, battery life, and caller ID (when available)--is quite small, and the shiny, mirrorlike finish surrounding it scratches and smudges easily.
