Felt cheaper, ugier fatter than my old vx8300. Thgis phone is a complete step down in every single way. Dont get fooled by the measurements it feels much bigger and like a cheap peice of ugly plastic. dont believe me go see it , you will laugh.
Boy, from the picture, it sure looked like a step up. I haven't seen it in the store yet, only online. Sounds like I'll keep me VX 8700 for awhile. What is with Verizon anyway? They really have some ugly looking phones. And they are all so dark. What happened to all the silver phones. I love silver, it's classy looking. Black or dark gray are just dull and ugly. So slammyham, what color is the backlight of the keypad? Also is the resolution better on the outer screen than the 8300? Is it sharper and clearer? Please respond. I sure wish Verizon would start making decent looking phones. I know the 8700 is silver, but man, we need more of them!!! Yhanks for the response!!! 🙄
hey cell lover 2 the maxx i actually bought this phone today. so far so good. i had a motorola razr so really anything is a step up from that! the resolution on the outside screen is a little better than the one on the 8300. i like that you can read txts on the outside screen too! its VERY light. I have yet to determine if thats a good thing or a bad thing. oh and the keypad back light is white. otherwise it seems to be just like alllll the other phones out there. same verizon system inside. the only reason i would return it is if there is no service where i work. that will be determined tomorrow! and i kind of like how it looks. but if you are looking for a silver phone, this is DEFINATELY not your style!
Thanks, jmb1682 for the info! I used to have the 8300 and the color wasn't so bad, but this looks darker. I have to see it in person. Haven't seen it in a store yet. I will check it out again in a few days. Thanks for responding, I really appreciate the info. If I decide I like it enough to get it, I will write about it, so stay tuned!!! Thanks. 🙂
