Even though we weren't that impressed with what was under the beautiful exterior of the LG Shine, Mark at Laptop Mag seems to like its brother, the VX8700, a bit more. He points out that it's definitely the sexiest V CAST phone on Verizon, even beating out the chocolatey VX8600.


They thought the video recording with 320x240 resolution at 15fps was decent enough, and the V CAST streaming over EV-DO was good as well. The phone needs to be recharged every other day, which is short for a phone that doesn't offer that much in the way of features. All in all it's a pretty sexy phone that's good for the crowd who cares more about how the phone looks than how many extra features the manufacturer can cram inside.

I agree The Lab, I would like to know what others think of this too, I was deciding between the vx8600 and the KRZR when I switch to Verizon. If anyone else has any comments, I would like to hear more opinions on it.
