No major feature is missing from the VX8700’s feature-set. It is EV-DO capable, has 2-mega pixel camera, Bluetooth with A2DP stereo broadcasting and microSD memory slot. As one attendee at the CTIA expressed her view of the VX8700 – it is something that you expect a CEO to carry around. We completely agree. The phone is just awesome!
LG570 has a completely new look and in our opinion is a lot more stylish and professional. A positive note is the decreased weight from 4.2 to 3.14 oz.
The whole idea of the Fusic is kept alive – a phone with music player merged in one. Unfortunately, it is not the only thing kept. The lousy 1.3-mega pixel camera is still here, as is the meager 176x220 main display. Increased is only the resolution of the external one and it is now 160x128 pixels.
The music controls on the front has been changed and now are touch-sensitive. Changed is the keypad and is now flush and in the short time we spent with it seems more comfortable compared with the LX550 Fusic.
If you desire not to be disturbed while rocking out, LG LX570 enables users to put it in music-only mode, where the phone functionality is turned off.
The unit which LG had at the show did not have charged battery, so we can not comment on the phone’s interface.
Overall, the LG570 looks like an interesting design, but we’ll need to spend a little more time with it in order to give a definite thumbs up or down.
