What People Are Saying

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Too Touch Sensitive I was excited when I purchased this phone. It had a lot of features that I wanted. I didn't really care about multimedia so much, but wanted easy of use and style, as well as ability to send text messages. It is clumsy for texting, so I will definitely be looking for a QWERTY keyboard for my future phone. I never could get the speakerphone function to work and the voice recognition was not usable. The worse thing about this phone, however, was that it was too touch sensitive, even on the lowest setting. Every time I tried to do something on the phone it would flip to something else. It's lasted a good long time, the battery life is good, reception is good.....just not what I expected from LG on ease of use. As usual LG quality is good - but was not functional for me.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I like very much! This phone is very easy to use, has plenty of accessories for it and appealing in general. I also like the fact that it has a slide out keypad and navigation wheel (oh, the pretty colors). And since I can have my music on a memory stick and play it on this phone - that's a plus! I would recommend to everyone. Enjoy!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from My Blue LG I've owned the LG VX8550 in Blue Ice for about one and a half years or so. I love the color and the slider works easily without any problems. It has many features although I only use this phone for calls and camera use. I also use the alarm clock for travel, calculator, and calendar features. The camera is pretty good too and has several handy features. It's a little difficult to figure out and when you're on a call sometimes your face can accidentally activate the silver button on the front. This causes other features and applications to come up on the phone while you're on the call which can be a problem/distraction. Otherwise, this is a pretty good phone all in all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does the trick! Nice phone, it definitely looks different than your average phone. It did take some getting used to- I am more used to a flip style phone, and the slide was tricky at first. The touch buttons on the front of the phone are neat, but I am constantly hitting them by accident and clearing what I was doing, or I bring up some screen I don't want.
