LG VX8300 Review

While sleek and stylish, the 91 x 48 x 25 mm VX8300 weighs 111 g, hardly razor-thin. But fans of the VX8100 will welcome the VX8300's similar layout. The front panel embeds a 65K-color external screen, capable of displaying frequently accessed information at 96 x 96 px.

Above the screen, a lens and flash to the 1.3-megapixel camera allow users to snap high-resolution printable photos at 1280 x 960 px. Positioned on the lower half, dedicated music keys give convenient access to Rewind, Play/Pause, and Forward functions when listening to tracks.

The left and right edges have handy buttons for shortcuts to frequently accessed features. Along the left, Volume Keys adjust the ring and voice volumes during standby and calls, while a Voice Commands Key records and playbacks memos doubling as the activation to the speaker-independent voice recognition system. On the right, a Camera Key lies above a microSD expansion card slot, providing removable storage for memory-intense multimedia applications such as photos, videos, and music.

A headset jack located on the top gives users private listening and handsfree access. While twin speakers on both ends of the hinge blast stereo sound for an exceptional open-air listening experience.
