LG Chocolate 3 VX8560

 

The LG Chocolate 3 has pretty much everything you'd want in a midrange Verizon phone.

Solid performance. Big screens and keys. Supports Rhapsody music.

Underreports reception. Calendar doesn't offer syncing options. Speakerphone doesn't work with flip closed.

Verizon Wireless LG Chocolate 3

 

The new clamshell version of LG's flagship music phone sports an FM transmitter and Rhapsody integration.

FM transmitter ; Good call quality ; Fun Flash Cast interface ; Large, functional external display ; 3.5mm audio jack

Mediocre Web experience ; Tinny speakers ; FM transmitter doesn't work with VZ Navigator

Unlike the standard Verizon Wireless menu system, the Chocolate 3's user interface has a bit of pizzazz. Nine icons inside the main menu give access to your Contacts, Games, Media Center, Messages, My Music, Recent Calls, Settings, V CAST Video, and VZ...

LG Chocolate 3 - black (Verizon Wireless) review

 

One could argue that as the Razr was to Motorola, the Chocolate was to LG. It was the first real iconic phone from LG, gaining plenty of hype because of its slender look and candy bar moniker. The Chocolate was also one of the first to really showcase...

The LG Chocolate 3 is an attractive phone with easy-to-use controls, two brilliant displays, and plenty of multimedia features. It also has a 3.5-mm headset jack, stereo Bluetooth, and a built-in FM transmitter. Call quality was excellent as well.

The LG Chocolate 3 suffers from a flat and slippery keypad, plus a reflective front surface that's prone to fingerprint smudges.

The LG Chocolate 3's design doesn't quite match up to its predecessors, but upgraded features like a built-in FM transmitter makes it a worthy music phone purchase.

LG Chocolate 3 Cell Phone Review

 

The LG Chocolate 3 is an update to a popular music-oriented phone on Verizon's network that now packs in even more internal storage than its predecessor.  However, it's now a flip phone instead of the slick slider style of its predecessors, rendering...

It's easy enough to make a call on the Chocolate 3 using its keypad, although it requires very firm presses and it clicks louder than we'd like. Or, you can dial a contact using its voice dialing software that works very well to select a contact by...
