Meanwhile, the video recorder will take low-resolution (but relatively watchable, for a camera phone) 15-second video clips, complete with sound. When filming, you can alter the brightness and white-balance settings. Once you're done snapping photos or shooting video, you can save the results to the gallery, upload them to Verizon's Pix Place service, or send them to friends via e-mail or multimedia message.
The VX7000 doesn't come with any games, but plenty are available for download from Get It Now. The VX7000 is easy to customize. You can pick wallpaper for both the internal and external LCDs (using either the phone's preinstalled graphics or your own photos), choose from one of four themes (Default, Business, Tropical, and Blue), toggle the font size to either big or small, and set specific ring tones for individual contacts. You can also record your own tones or download more from Verizon.We tested the dual-band (CDMA 800/1900) LG VX7000 in New York City using Verizon Wireless. We had no trouble speaking to or hearing our callers, while they reported that we sounded loud and clear.
We got a little more than 4 hours of talk time on the VX7000, beating the 3.3 hours promised by LG. Our standby time was 6 days, falling short of the rated time of 7.5 days. According to the FCC, the digital SAR rating for the VX7000 was 1.27 watts per kilogram.
