Best of the new EVDO/Vcast Phones - Samsung rocks !

Okay here we go..

I am certainly a power user. I have owned every pohne on the Verizon Network and spent my career with AT&T in Network Design. Does that make me an Expert ? Not sure, but I know my stuff !

I bought the LG8000 and the 890 to test both.

The 890 is awesome !

The Audiovox 8940 is a disaster. The first thing you must look at in a phone is simply the Voice Quality. The D/A convertors in the Audiovox which are the little devices that convert your voice to digital and back are horrible. The voice quality on the 8940 is almost unusable. People who are used to having low quality conversation might be okay with it but if you have owned a samsung you know what good voice quality is.
Also the 8940 speakerphone is horribly lo...

have you pushed any buttons on the phone yet it's an evdo phone why make it that if it doesnt have a web browser

That review is wrong. It has the same Openwave UP 6.2.3 browser as the VX8000 when using mobile web and VCast. Apparently the genius at PCMag did not have a working phone and just looked at a dummy phone.

The only differences that I know of is the LG has MP3 and speakerphone while the samsung has speech to text ability

FYI, do not read every review of each phone as the end all be all. Go play with live phones.

One other difference is that the Samsung only has 8MB of memory. That isn't much for a phone that has a 1.3 megapixel camera.

Don't believe a word theater says. First off, he has a bunch of spelling and grammar errors. Would you trust a review from someone that can't spell correctly? Instead of ruling out the 8940,
Lets rule out theatermax's review completely!
