LG Decoy

 

This stylish but pricey slider is the first cell phone to integrate a Bluetooth headset.

The LG Decoy is the first phone to include a built-in Bluetooth headset, and the final product is as stylish as it is innovative. We like the bright, colorful screen, speedy Web browsing, built-in GPS, and V CAST Music and Video package. But given the...

LG Decoy (Verizon Wireless) review

 

As hands-free calling laws go into effect around the country, Bluetooth headsets are slowly becoming a must-have accessory for those who wish to continue chatting on the phone while on the road. Even now, Bluetooth headsets have reached a critical...

The LG Decoy comes with a built-in Bluetooth headset that stows away in the back of the phone. It has nice tactile keys, an easy-to-use interface, and features include a 2-megapixel camera, EV-DO, stereo Bluetooth, a music player, and V Cast support....

The LG Decoy has a very glossy finish that makes it prone to smudges, and the display can be difficult to see under bright lights. The included Bluetooth headset has skinny volume controls, and does not have noise reduction or echo canceling technology.

The LG Decoy is an excellent phone on its own, but the addition of a built-in Bluetooth headset puts it over the top.

LG Decoy VX8610

 

Surprise! This slider cell has a Bluetooth headset tucked into the back, so you'll always have it at the ready.

Innovative design integrates a Bluetooth headset. Very good voice quality. Decent camera.

Headset performs poorly in noisy areas. Short Bluetooth talk time.

LG Decoy

 

The LG Decoy is an attractive cell phone with its sleek finish, slider design, and bright display. But that's not what makes this cell phone stand out. It's actually the integrated Bluetooth headset that is the real show stopper. The LG Decoy comes...

The LG Decoy for Verizon Wireless is a unique device unlike any other, by offering a detachable Bluetooth headset located in the back of the phone. In doing so, it is targeted to the on-the-go consumer who always wants to be connected wirelessly to a...

Review: LG VX8610 Decoy

 

The LG Decoy for Verizon wireless is one of the most novel cell phones on the market. What makes it so special is its built-in Bluetooth headset that stores away in the back of the phone. Michelle tests it out and gives us the lowdown in her review.

The PIM functions on the Decoy were pretty extensive and include an alarm clock, calculator, tip calculator, calendar, world clock, and a notepad. The phone also supports Verizon's VZ Navigator 4.1.1, which includes the latest enhancements for live...
