"Don't get the Chocolate"

The good: style and big screen The bad: breaks eaisly very flimsy Summary: I've had the chocolate for about 18 months and i'm sick of it. I'm switchng to the enV 2, but i slid it up and down to much and it broke into 2 pieces. when i press the back button on the phone it starts dialing #84 the charge adapter where you put it in on the phone, broke off. You can change the sensitivity level of the touch pad but it is still eithr to sensitive or not sensitive enough. When you talk to someone on it... more...

"Chocolate Review"

The good: Easy Use, portable, great multiple function. The bad: Battery life just below average Display malfunctioned after period of time. Summary: The Chocolate is a new elegant look with a sliding keypad that is great. You can listen to music from your computer onto this cell phone. only problems encountered were battery life is not so great, and this is my 2nd chocolate phone because of the same display malfunction. Other than that, I would choose this phone over any Razor or touch screen... more...

"LG 8500 Chocolate"

The good: Media Player, Browser Functionality, The bad: Unfortunatly Not Going The Way Of The Symbian OS Like The Sony Ericksson. Flash or lack there of and needing to catch light from another source which can be a pain at times.. Summary: I dont know what everyone is complaining about, i go through approx. 5 phones a year at least if not more. This has to be the most functional phone i have had to date. Not to mention if you get a tad bit into the inner workings of your phone like i do... more...

"Side keys make me want to throw it out the window"

The good: I like slide up open. The bad: Calls numbers at random. Flimsy. Overly sensitive touch or not enough. Hate this phone. Summary: Too delicate - the battery charger jack came out of the phone. If you're checking voice mail, or talking to someone, your fingers are right on the side keys and it just starts going through menus while you're trying to carry on a conversation. Just not meant to be used.

"Flawed Phone! Stay away!"

The good: Speaker phone, GPS, people mistake it for an iPhone, The bad: Touch phone doesn't work correctly, battery life is terrible, keypad meant for very small fingers Summary: 1. I got the phone 10 months ago and the battery no longer keeps a charge. I practice good battery life skills: mostly charged but will drain it once a month. I've had other phones that can keep a charge for years. This one didn't even make it a year. I'm needing to buy a new battery. 2. Depending on the... more...

"Mint Chocolate!! not cool..4 phones in 5 months...lol"

The good: The phone is cute and easy to use. I caught on to the uses really quickly. Its touch sensors are set to your liking. The calls are pretty clear. The bad: memory sucks!! Summary: The Green one I bought in March i had to get a new one in June and July and its Aug and i have to do it again. The phone's memory is crazy it doesnt hold as much as it should for all the features. now when i look at my pictures my phone cuts off and back on again. the previous two wouldnt come back on so i... more...

The good: small good screen quality music player loud speaker fun to play with lots of memory The bad: touch screen can be kind of a pain my vibrate seemed to stop working Summary: Overall, i like this phone. I love how it comes in my favorite color...pink. I just dont like how the vibrate stopped working. It has a lot of internal memory which is cool.

"Awesome Phone!"

The good: Touch pad is quick and easy to use. Long battery life. shortcuts on sides of phone make it even more easier to find what you are looking for! the music player is great! everything about this phone is awesome! but the camera.... The bad: Camera has no flash. kind of hard to take a picture, if your hand isn't really steady, the picture will come out all warped. only complaint here is about the camera. Summary: If you're using a mini sd card, make sure you transfer the files to the... more...

"Terrible!"

The good: what pros? Hate It! The bad: soft keys are a pain expensive accessories needed to complete performance Summary: I am so sorry I wasted my money and time on this phone. I truly wish I could just toss it, but I have not had it long enough to upgrade. HATE it with a the hugest HATE possible. Don't waste your money any phone is better.

"LG Chocolate - turning it in for something that actually works"

The good: Looks nice on my desk The bad: Music player locks up, touch pad rarely works right Summary: I'm on my second chocolate. Returned the first one when the music player kept locking up. Second one does the same thing - apparently its DRM related, but no one at Verizon knows what to do about it. The touch pad is a joke. Most of the time the buttons either fail to work at all or lock up after one or two clicks. I have to close the slider and start over. When they do work, they often... more...

"LG Chocolate...what you should know."

The good: Nice design, cool exterior The bad: not durable, randomly calls people Summary: The LG Chocolate has an awesome look on the outside. But overall, I wouldn't recommend this phone unless someone is purchasing it based on looks alone. Reason being is that the touch sensitive buttons located on the front of the phone causes the phone to randomly call the last person that was called on the phone. Also, the durability of the phone is not very realistic. I'm not saying that phones should... more...

Fareed's LG VX-8500-Chocolate review


Fareed's LG VX-8500-Chocolate...
The LG chocolate phone was made and released for Valentines Day, hence the name Chocolate phone. The phone got very famous quite fast because of the design and futuristic look. Although the LG chocolate phone is more famous, the Samsung E900 is a direct competitor, but which is better for you? Even though the phone is called chocolate, it sure doesn’t taste like it!!      The LG chocolate is a slider phone and when open it reveals the keypad. The best part of the... more...
