The LG VX8100 is a mobile phone that was available through Verizon Wireless in 2005 and 2006. It used Verizon's EV-DO network and was one of the first phones to support V CAST service.[1] It also featured Bluetooth capability, stereo speakers, and a MiniSD slot.[2]

Reception[edit]

The VX8100 received mix reviews. Some compared it unfavorably to its predecessor, the VX8000, because the VX8100 was heavier, had a shorter battery life, a protruding antenna, a smaller screen, and did not include an analog compatibility mode[1] Another source of criticism was that there were four different firmware versions of the phone—none of which were marked on the box—which made for inconsistent consumer experiences.[3]

However, Laptop magazine rated it 4 out of 5 stars, mostly based on its multimedia functionality and faster data rate.[4]

Based on call quality, features, and durability the VX8100 continues to retain a great fan base years after initial launch.
