for the Motorola Droid RAZR M:
Compact large screen phone is high quality
I've had this little gem of a phone for over 2 weeks now, and I really like it. I was planning on getting an Iphone 5, but this phone seemed to have a lot more to offer. Motorola did a great job in producing a high quality android phone with a 4.3 inch display, in a very compact form, and seems very easy to use. Since the screen is pretty much edge to edge, it gives you ...

for the Motorola Droid RAZR MAXX:
The best so far..the problem of battery life solved!
For battery life alone, this phone stands ahead of all the rest. You can use all the wonderful features without fear of running out of battery. And still, the phone is slim and light. ALL Androids (and Iphones) should be required to have such a long lasting battery. I wouldn't buy another phone without such a battery. I used to have to charge my phone every night, and in my car. Now, I can go days without ...

for the HTC ThunderBolt:
Great phone, but need to manage the power
I live in a 4G area, and the internet and data speeds are fantastic. Doing various speed tests such the the Speakeasy test, I get download speeds of 15 to 20MB! Then, using the phone as a hotspot, it can provide high speed internet to any laptop or tablet, so no need to get a data plan for your Ipad, Xoom, or laptop PC. Everything works well, but negative issue is the battery life. At ...

for the LG Ally / Apex / Axis:
Droid that works great as a phone
This phone is overall a great phone, probably the best I've had. I had the Moto Droid, the Incredible, and now this (since I broke the Incredible). As a phone--this is far and above the best. The call clarity is wonderful--no static, great reception--better than the other Incredible or Droid. It's got a great physical keyboard, much better than Moto Droid, which is very useful. It does just about everything the other Droids do, ...

for the HTC Droid Incredible:
Incredbibly cool but ultra- fragile
This phone is pretty cool. Very slim, sleek, does a lot, and makes great calls. The one thing I would warn about---it's also incredibly fragile. You can't treat this phone you would most others--it's not for those who are prone to dropping their phones, or those who even bump their phones occasionally against hard surfaces. I had my phone inside my car at the end of day one of using it; it was attached to the ...

for the BlackBerry Pearl Flip 8230:
Surprising upgrade to the Pearl
I've been using a Blackberry Pearl 8130 for over a year. I like the size, but not real happy about the keyboard size and display. The new Flip model has really resolved those issues for me. It has all the features you expect from a Blackberry, without looking like a Blackberry. It's great for anyone who wants a nice looking phone with the advanced features of a smartphone. The keyboard is much larger than the Pearl 8130's, and the display ...

for the Motorola RAZR maxx Ve:
Somewhat disappointing
I got this phone for someone on my family share plan, and of course, I decided to try it out first. I currently am using the Krzr, and have used the original Razr, and LG8300 before. The reception on the phone was great, though the call clarity was not quite as good as the Krzr. The larger front display is nice, but both the front glass, and inside display get smudged up instantly by fingerprints--much more so than ...

for the Motorola KRZR K1m:
Looks and works great, perfect size
I got this KRZR phone about a month ago, and am very glad I did. I previously had the original RAZR, and was extremely disappointed with that. So, I was very skeptical about getting the KRZR. It works great--sound and call clarity is great on both ends, battery life good, and reception is the best I've seen. And, of course, the phone looks very elegant, and is the perfect size for both making calls, and keeping ...

for the LG VX-8300:
Best phone out there
I have to agree with most of the positive reviews here. I've had the LG 8300 for about 3 weeks now, and love it. It's the best phone Verizon offers. Great reception, great call clarity, great battery life, good speakerphone. And a nice camera (for a cellphone), and bluetooth. This phone seems to do everything well, including the VZ Navigator service.

Apr 18, 2006, 7:16 PM
for the Motorola V323 / V325 / V323i / V325i:
Excellent Phone and Navigator
I've had this phone for about 2 months now. I had returned the Razr phone for various reasons. Prior to this, I had to Moto E815, an excellent phone, too. This phone has excellent reception (worked great on the beach in Puerto Rico), and the sound quality is unsurpassed. The people who I am talking to say it does not sound at all like a cell phone. Even on that remote beach in Puerto Rico, I ...

for the Motorola RAZR V3c:
Moto finally did it - The best phone ever
My previous phone was the Moto E815; before that, the LG 7000 and LX 6100. I liked the reception on the E815, but hated the bulky size. This new razr phone is incredible. The size is perfect. It fits into any pocket, even your back pants pocet, and you won't even know it's there. When opened, it's perfect size with a big screen, big keypad, and, all the side buttons are on the upper ...

Oct 18, 2005, 9:51 AM
for the Motorola E815 / E816 Hollywood:
Excellent Reception and Clarity Everywhere
The excellent reception is what sold me on this phone, along with the loud, clear call quality on both ends. After all, isn't that what's most important? I haven't owned a Moto phone since the V60i. Lately, I have preferred LG's and Samsungs. I've had some troubles with other models of phones inside my home; I always got at least 2 bars of signal, but the calls would usually be choppy, and callers at the other end ...

Oct 12, 2005, 9:29 AM
for the Samsung SCH-A950:
Nice phone is you are close to cell tower
I agree with just about everything Theatermax said about this phone. It's very cool (if you don't mind the red color), feels really well built, feels solid if your hand, the sound and volume were great in the store, and during a good part of my drive home. The camera and video display are awesome. The one flaw, which I consider major (and a deal-breaker for me), is that the reception is not too good unless you are in an ...

for the Motorola V710:
Problems for day 1
I got this phone at US Cellular. Bluetooth headset was included and sounded great on my end (but people I called said it sounded bad). Sound quality was very good in earpiece and on wired headset. Speakerphone sounded great on both ends. I didn't like the style that much, as every fingerprint shows up, and it was larger than some of the other, more stylish phones like the LG 6100. Within the first few 4 hours ...

Aug 5, 2005, 12:34 PM
for the LG VX-4700 / VX-4650 / AX-4750 / UX-4750:
Good speakerphone, otherwise nothing special
Using the LG 4650, Verizon: The call quality and volume using the earpiece are quite good. The speakerphone volume and clarity are pretty good, but, certainly, not as good as holding the phone in your ear. The thing I didn't like about this phone, which is probably why I won't be keeping it, is that the volume using the headset is too low. I tried many headsets with it, and none are as loud as with the LG V6100 ...

Feb 5, 2005, 10:51 AM
for the LG VX-7000:
Excellent Phone--Simply Perfect
I was holding off purchasing the VX7000 until I saw what the VX8000 was like. After seeing both, I decided that the VX7000 would suit my needs better. I like all the great features on the VX8000, and the call quality was equal to the VX7000, but it has more than I needed. I like the size of the VX7000--a bit smaller than the VX8000 which I thought looked a bit big, and not as clean ...

for the Motorola V265 / V266 / V276:
Good call quality on otherwise mediocre phone
I may be spoiled by some of the very solid, stylish phones I've had in the past, in particular the old Moto V60i, and the Samsung A670. Those were both sleek, solid, beautiful phones. The V265 is not. This is not one of Motorola's better accomplishments in style or quality. I'm generally a Motorola fan, having used the V60i and T730. The color display is a joke. It's awful. It's a disgrace to Motorola that ...

Oct 27, 2004, 3:47 PM
for the LG VX-6100:
Good, but a bit of a disappointment
I got the LG6100 after I heard all the rave reviews, and reading about the great features it has. I currently have the Samsung A670 which I replaced with the LG. This review compares these 2 phones, which I think are 2 of the best overall phones from Verizon. The Samsung style is much more sleek and nice looking, build quality seems better, and phone is better laid out. More importantly, the call clarity of the LG is not ...

Jun 23, 2004, 3:30 PM
for the LG VX-4600:
Nice, simple color phone
The LG 4600 is unbelievably light and easy to use. When I first took it out of the box, I didn't think it was possible that such a compact, lightweight phone would really be that good; I was wrong about that. The call quality is excellent. The phone is so easy to use. And it's a good size--easy to hold, and very light. There's no camera, speakerphone, bluetooth, PDA----just a good quality color phone with the all ...

Jun 12, 2004, 6:32 PM
for the Samsung SCH-A670:
A real gem--sturdy, excellent call quality, beautiful
This new phone from Samsung is a real gem. I upgraded from a Moto T730 3 days ago. Right away you notice how solidly built and sturdy the phone is, how light and compact it is, and how beautiful the display and backlit keypad is. The display far exceeds the Moto T730 or LG 4400. Although compact, the keypad is easy to use--keys aren't too small or close together. Most important to me is the call reception and quality. ...

May 16, 2004, 6:23 AM
for the Motorola v60i (CDMA) / v60ci / v60ic:
A real classic--maybe the best ever
I've owned this phone, and it's predecessor, V60c. This is the most beautiful phone ever, and the reception is excellent. The volume level is great, and the call clarity, and reception are all great as well. And its size and durability are excellent. The style is classic. At the time is came out, it was state of the art---a great upgrade over the startac in every way. This phone lacks a color screen, camera, ...

Mar 7, 2004, 5:37 AM
for the Motorola T730 / T731c:
Great Phone--Excellent Sound Quality
I've been a Verizon customer for years in the Chicago area, and have always been pleased with the service. Up till a few weeks ago, I was using a Motorola V60i. I was prepared to go with an LG or Samsung after seeing the great reviews. I tried the LG VX-4400, and really did not like the sound quality. I returned it. In the store, I tested out just about every model they had, making test ...
