The LG VX8300 Offers Alot of Features & Dependibility for The Money.

Yes, I would recommend this product to a friend.

The LG VX8300 is a GREAT basic phone for someone who just wants a good, reliable phone with fantastic reception. It doesn't have all of the bells & whistles of the newer smart phones, but with this phone you only have to pay for a basic plan thru Verizon...not the added cost of internet, etc. You can make calls or txt message under the basic plans available. You can send emails on this phone, but Verizon will charge you an additional charge for it.

The phone is sturdy and measures a little over 3" in length. 28mb internal storage...and uses an optional micro SD card for music and pictures. The phone book capacity is 500 and each available entry allows you to put 5 numbers and 2 email addresses in for the same person. Internal & external displays are color and can be personalized easily with a few clicks. The phone is bluetooth enabled and can also be set up to dial, etc by voice command. 911 enabled. Can set the phone up to ring/ring & vibrate, or just vibrate with incoming calls or txt messages. Can be set up with picture or ringtone ID of person calling. The music player is MP3 & WMA supported...the phone has really nice external speaker sound. The phone has a 1mp camera and has a flash/timer/white balance controls. The phone can also take videos. You can also download backup assistant (which is free) onto the phone...so, if your phone ever gets lost or broken, you can easily set up a replacement phone without having to manually enter each person's information again. The camera comes with a regular battery...which when fully charged...allows about 3 1/2 hours of talk time or about 15 days standby time. We have always purchased the extended battery which allows about double the talk time. You can pick the extended batteries up on Ebay (non OEM) very cheap.

As I stated earlier...the phone has awesome reception. We have had cell coverage when other people didn't. I think it has to do with the external antenna that the newer phones don't have. All in all, you can't go wrong with this phone!

VX8300 is great if upgrading.

I received my VX8300 FREE thanks to Verizon's new-every-two policy. I was looking for a all-around decent phone that was newer. I didn't quite care so much about the features but this phone has quite a bit.

The phone has a built-in MP3 player with stereo stound provided by dual speakers on either side of the case. Additionally, the speakerphone also provides full-duplex sound from these speakers. I find the speakerphone is sometimes difficult to hear and understand in anything but a library-like environment.

The phone also has bluetooth capababilities. I have found the bluetooth is kind of lacking as is with most LG phones. I haven't had the opportunity to use the hands-free or bluetooth headsets but different reviews online have shown that on occasion calls will be directed back to the handset while talking on a hands-free device.

The phone provides a MicroSD memory port to store pictures, videos, sound and music. They can easily be purchased at about $20 for a 512 MB chip. This is more than enough for a few hours of music or several pictures and video.

The browser is WAP 2.0 compatible and surfing the internet is somewhat easy. I find that the main screen though can be difficult for internet usage when compared to something like a Blackberry or Trio (which is to be expected). I also think that the phone lacks the functionality to allow the browser to use the MicroSD card as a temporary memory location. The phone can use up the memory too quickly on graphically intensive websites and will show very little of the sites graphics.

The battery lasts a while when you don't use bluetooth, internet or speakerphone/mp3 player. Otherwise it's quite a long lasting battery. I have gone 2 days without charging with minimal talking. I usually charge the battery nightly because I use the internet a lot at night and it drains the battery with the LCD screens on.

The main screen and front screen allow you to use your own pictures as wallpaper and even allows animated wallpapers. There is also an option to change the colors of the menus. The main screen is quite large and is easy to view. The front screen is a tad smaller but it contains much of the information as the main screen so you don't have to open the phone.

The camera is astounding for a cellphone. It has a better capability than my normal digital camera. It features 1.3 mexapixels and up to 1280 x 960 resolutions. It also has a flash, 4X zoom, timer, brightness and white balance, color effects (b&w, sephia) and night mode. The build in video recorder with audio has a 4x zoom and 176x144 non-changeable resolution. The video resolution can be better and it's not really that great for anything you'd want to see again on a computer. It can be a tad grainy.

The built-in MP3 player is quite easy to use and you can either put MP3's from your home computer onto the MicroSD card or download them using the VCAST feature. Something not in the user manual though is to press and hold the front PLAY button and it will start/stop the MP3 player without opening the phone.

The phone has EV-DO and standard signals that it receives. I have noticed that when transitioning from an EV-DO available location to a non-EV-DO available location calls are dropped.

All-in-all this is a professional yet practical phone. It does have some shortcomings with the bluetooth technology but overall the phone is very useful and has many features.

Love this phone

I've had this phone for awhile, bought a new one off ebay after I dropped mine out a car window,(don't ask, I was wasted). I bought it because when if first came out it had the best camera and music features. Love the dual speakers for both music and duplex speaker phone, meaning you can talk and listen to someone at the same time. On the older model phones you can enable MP3s by going into a secret service menu but this feature is disabled on newer phones and you can only play WMA files. The call quality and music quality is great. The camera pictures are good as long as you have good lighting, doesn't work so well in bars though, and the flash is almost pointless. The only other downfall is that you can't use regular headphones, you have to use the ones sold by LG. Overall a great phone though. But a much better price when you activate a new contract.

Lives up to LG's Standards and Quality

This Phone is the perfect combination of Substance, Size, Stlye, Easy of use. The phone has just about anything you could ask for from a phone. The Audio Player is setup to use WMA files syncronized through Windows Media Play with the puchase of a Music Essentials Kit. You can get around this by enabling the MP3 Player function in the service menu and reassign the front buttons to activate it instead of the Audio Player. You retain all the VZW Media Player functionality in doing this. The phone has great battery life and can get you through a day of high volume calling using the bluetooth headset and a little music listening aswell.

As with most LG phones the vibrate function almost defeats the purpose by causing almost as much noise as the ringer. The upside to this, is that you know you will feel it almost eveytime. The Ringer is loud and clear, notifying you of a call effectively. The internal memory of the phone is about 35 megabytes giving you room to store your ringers, pictures, and videos. It also has the added functionality of a MicroSD Slot allowing increased capacity for songs, pictures, and videos.

The Reciever sensitivity is less than I expected on this phone but it will still do the job, just not in the remote locations that some may visit were network coverage is spotty.

With the added feature of EV-DO, this phone is offically a V-Cast Phone, allowing you to enjoy mobile content on the go anywhere within the V-Cast coverage area. This can greatly enhance the enjoyability of the phone. Overall I give this phone a 4 out of 5 simply because I find Motorola Phones to be superior to other phones. I am reviewing this phone because I have owned it for about 4 weeks but then returned to my Motorola E815 simply because it will work in the places that I need it to.

A great phone for the kids or anyone looking for an inexpensive multimedia enabled phone.

If you have any questions please feel free to ask and I will assist you to the best of my ability.

Another Quality LG Phone

The follow up to LG's VX8100 this phone has been slimmed down and improved a bit in the looks department personal choice I prefer the silver more then the blue on the VX 8100
Pros on this phone Reception is VERY good I get signals everywhere and even in areas where I have had Zero bars of signal I could still make and receive calls with no problems. Hearing people has not been a problem on the VX8300 as it was on the LG VX8100 (the problem on the VX8100 was fixed with software version 7) I have had a few people ask me to repeat myself (perhaps they just have trouble hearing) bluetooth capabilities for this phone dont seem up to par with my LG VX9800 I have tried several times pairing up a Motorola HS820 with the VX8300 and it took a few tries before it Paired with the phone
even then it doesnt seem as good as the bluetooth on the 9800 or the VX8100
Perhaps this is a software issue with the phone and be fixed in future updates
The outer screen is ok and doesnt seem as crisp as the Outer LCD on the VX8100
You also Cannot read text messages from the front screen really not a big deal since you have to open a phone to respond to text messages anyway but Im sure some will find this a hindrance
the camera on this phone for a sub 2 Mpixel camera is very good IF your subject sits still but for a camera phone it does what it should and does it well this IS a PHONE after all

the battery life on the phone seems to be on par with what most CDMA phones get of course depending on your usage of text messaging listening to music, playing games and GASP using as a phone talking to people you should expect to get somewhere between 3 and 4 hours talk time and if you hardly ever use the phone right around 6 or 7 days

I did not have a Micro SD card so I couldnt try out the music features & Capabilities of this phone

Inside the phones main screen is bright but for some reason doesnt seem to be the same quality of the VX8100 in the menu section of the phone you have the Capabilities to change the Menu Themes from the Normal Verizon UI that is found of most their phones now
you can choose from The Normal Default Setting, Silver Spin, Pulse, Business, Tropical, and Blue
Which is nice to be able to change the Red Title bar found at the top of the screen of 99% of verizons phones to blue, green, or .... Keep it the boring Red
The Ringers are still the normal boring ones found on practically every LG that has been released the last 2 years Which is good for Verizon so they can force you to Buy Ringtones from their Wide Variety of partners using the Get it now service

The buttons on the phone are looking at the phone from the side appear flat but they are raised The Camera button is on the side of the phone and the speakerphone button stands alone no multi function use on it

Voice Activated commands work well and had no trouble understanding me when I said "my account" or send message to
although some friends with higher pitched voices had trouble getting it to understand them

This is a great LG phone with some nice add on features to the LG VX8100
is it worth upgrading to? Depends, if you can get it from Verizon cheap enough go for it otherwise I would stick with the 8100 or go with the LG VX9800
If you havent upgraded in a while and would like a great phone that wont disappoint the VX8300 might very well be your next phone
