LG VX8500 (Chocolate by LG)


The luscious, unique Chocolate by LG (for geeks, the LG VX8500) takes pride of place as Verizon's premier music phone, with good sound quality and MP3 support in the V CAST Music player (finally!). The quirky, touch-sensitive interface takes some...

Beautiful. Stereo Bluetooth. MP3 support

No speakerphone. Very sharp learning curve with buttons ; Watch the LG Chocolate VX8500 Video Review

Verizon's best music phone, LG VX8500 (a.k.a., the "Chocolate") looks like nothing else and that's a good thing, mostly.

Yes, the LG VX8500 "Chocolate" is being dubbed a music phone and its cool exterior slightly resembles the U2-inspired iPod, this cell phone isn't just about the music. It's got decent battery life, impressive audio quality, expandable memory, a...

I really am not happy with this phone, sometimes way to sensitive to the touch and other times touch not enough. Goes through too many loops to just sent a text message. Difficult to answer a call on call waiting. When I did try to up grade both Lets...

This is a great looking and great functioning phone. I have 2 complaints about it. It's touch controls are too touchy. You barely touch one and the menu will get away from you. It also has a short battery life. As far as looks, I have the white...

LG VX8500


The software that Verizon uses to transfer MP3 files from my computer to phone doesn't ever recognize my telephone. I have had to get another type of non-Verizon software to do the job properly. The buttons are very sensitive. Often my face will make...

LG VX8500


Well I've have my LG Chocolate phone for almost 8 months now, and the phone has some good and bad attributes. When I first got the phone I absolutely loved the sleek style and design of the phone, although I never used the MP3 player very much. The...

LG VX8500


The LG VX8500 definitely needs a better battery. It dies after only like a day and a half of frequent use. Even when you dial down the sensitivity on the touch keys, it is still too sensitive sometimes and easy to hit the wrong button. The picture...

LG VX8500


I don't really use the music yet but the phone is okay. The reviews I read about it, some were true and some were just completely outrageous. I love the lime green since that is my favorite color. The phone is good as said but verizon is a little...
