Review: LG Chocolate

Is It Your Type Body Three S's

An In-Depth review of LG's sleek new VX-8500 Chocolate slider music phone for Verizon Wireless. NEW: Video tour

There's no denying it, the sleek black form of the Chocolate is sexy. With a gloss black finish, and a solid black keypad, it bears little resemblance to its edible namesake, but it still shares all the same looks and features as the Korean model that somehow took on this moniker.

Like most phones that put an emphasis on looks, the Chocolate asks you to give up a little in performance and usability for the privilege of carrying a phone that everyone will fawn over. The sacrifices aren't so great for most users, but the select few expecting high tech features that work flawlessly on their high-tech-looking phone might want to wait for a software update or a second generation.
