LG VX8700 Reviews

Infosync reviews the LG VX8700 and writes, “Pictures from the 2-megapixel camera on the VX8700 were fuzzy and dull. Colours were generally accurate, but pictures had an overall haziness to them that made them undesirable for printing, though the phone can connect directly to a compatible printer. Photo management tools were basic, including some cropping and colour effect options – nothing too fancy. Overall, pictures looked okay as phone wallpapers, and perhaps could make for passable shots on a MySpace page, but in our books, the VX8700 joins the ranks of phones with a camera tacked on as an afterthought. Don’t let megapixel counts fool you, if the phone doesn’t have a quality lens, the pictures will be disappointing.”

MobileTechReview has a review of the LG VX8700 and writes, “Though not autofocus, the camera delivers pleasing shots that generally show good focus with less noise than most 2MP and under camera phones. The only thing we didn’t like was the persistent brown cast that plagues indoor and outdoor shots. Photoshop’s “auto colour” had little luck improving things and we had to tweak the colours on our own to reduce reds and yellows while enhancing blues. … LG marries fashion and function with the VX8700. The phone is stunning, slim and easily pocketed and it has a good camera, great call quality, good Bluetooth performance including A2DP and good overall response times. In terms of both features and looks, it’s serious competition for the Motorola RAZR maxx. We like most everything about this phone lots: a better than average camera, nice video recording quality, strong gaming performance, a very good display (though not quite up to the superb LG VX9400’s) and a strong Bluetooth implementation. Our only two dings are the inconvenient microSD card location and the flat keypad/d-pad.”

CNET has a review of the LG VX8700 and writes, “One of the most outstanding features on the VX8700 is its 2-megapixel camera. You can choose from up to four different resolutions (1,600×1,200, 1,280×960, 640×480, 320×240 pixels), adjust the white balance and the brightness, set a self-timer, choose from three shutter sounds or a silent option, and select one of five colour effects. Other camera settings include a night mode plus the option of saving to the internal memory or to a microSD card. Photo quality was simply stunning for a camera phone, with rich colours and vivid detail. The phone comes with a built-in image editor, which you can use to rotate, crop, or zoom in on photos.”
