Review: LG VX-8100
The 8100 is a great phone for diving headfirst into the VCAST universe. It's brilliant color display and quick EV-DO browsing are backed up by large stereo speakers that give online content a great sense of weight. The 8100 does a great job of presenting Verizon's VCAST service as a great source of entertainment. Many times using while testing we chose online video content over whipping out an iPod for short periods. Outside of that walled garden however, the 8100's substandard camera, simplistic UI, and unimpressive battery keep this phone from fulfilling it's potential as the ultimate multimedia handset.
