The LG VX8100 is a great phone for those who demand the newest thing. Whether it's the latest full-stereo ring tone or the highlight from last night's football game. The VCAST video features make the 8100 indispensable for a those who like to be on the cusp of what's new, and who want to always be connected to the latest sports, entertainment, and information. The media access capabilities make it perfect for the hands of Hollywood teenagers and those aspiring to copy them.

OnePlus has an unusually confusing array of different "flagship" phones available right now, but the 7T is the newest mainstream model for most people. It's still quite high-end, but for a reasonable price and without some of the crazier features of the new Pro models, which most people don't need anyway.
Red announced its "holographic 4-view" phone more than a year ago. After several delays, it is finally ready for prime time.
The Sony Xperia XZ2 Compact is a phone for those averse to today's mega-slabs. It's a diminutive dynamo that packs a big punch.
The BlackBerry KEY2 takes the basic design of last year's phone and makes improvements all around. The phone has a decent-sized screen, physical QWERTY keyboard, and metal chassis.
Other than that, though. I love this phone.
8100 Not on Verizon Site
Usually when on of their phones is out of stock it says so (but they keep the phone on the site).
Anyone have a clue??
Mobile Phone Screen Capture
BTW, How did you do the screen captures? Digital Camera? I know there's a few apps for Nokia devices, but haven't found one for non-Nokia.
Here's my take:
Reasonably nice to hold and handle, although the flip open angle is a little too snug for my liking. I like my phones to open flatter.
The speakers look like a big womans hips.
I was seriously tripped up bu the video recorder. I've been using a Sharp 903SH to video blog my travels around the world and half way through the intro to my spiel the LG stopped recording! I thought it was broken. It sure was a shock ...
Are you positive there are 6 tabs? I count five, but hey, math was never my strong subject.
Anyway, nice review. Thanks for taking the time to get all of the information right... 😳
Six tabs, five tabs, not much difference. They have the more important parts right.
On site observations!
