LG VX6100 Phone (Verizon Wireless) Review
LG VX6100 Phone (Verizon Wireless) Description:
The VGA (640 x 480) camera unit, flash, and lens cover are housed just above the supplementary display. A Most of the phone's features and on-screen menus are controlled by a five-way center button on the handset's blue backlit control pad. A USB-compatible data and charging ports are housed on the unit's bottom edge. There's a standard jack to accept universal hands-free headsets on the left side of the handset.
The VX6100's built-in address book can store up to 499 contacts for quick and easy management of phone numbers and email addresses. The phone comes with built-in polyphonic ringtones plus a vibrating alert. The VX6100's enhanced voice dialing supports voice-to-digit dialing and name recognition for speedy dialing of contacts. The phone's voice recognition software supports voice commands from any user, not just a pre-programmed user's voice. A built-in speakerphone makes it easy to talk without having the phone to your ear and GPS location technology pinpoints your exact location when you dial 911. Finally, the phone's picture ID system allows you to assign pictures to your most common callers.
Messaging, Internet and Tools
The VX6100 is a messaging powerhouse with support for Multimedia Messaging Service (MMS), which allows you to send picture messages as easily as text and graphics. When used in combination with the phone's built-in camera, MMS opens up a whole new world of messaging fun. T9 text entry, which is a technology that makes it easier for people to enter words and text on handsets, is built into the unit-- a plus for mobile email and text messaging users.
Getting on the Internet anywhere is easy with the VX6100, as well. Verizon's optional Mobile Web package allows you to read and send e-mails, exchange instant messages and view your favorite web content on your phone. You can check your e-mail, trade stocks online, compare prices while shopping, access flight information, get movie listings and find directions to the theater.
Verizon's Get It Now wireless download service is also fully compatible with the VX6100. This pay-per-download service features application downloads, games and productivity tools. You can also personalize your handset with ringtone downloads and digital photo-sharing tools using the Get It Now service.
The VX6100 ships with a calendar and scheduler, as well as a voice memo application with up to 4 minutes of record time. An alarm clock and calculator are also included, as is the very handy restaurant tip calculator. Never dine without it!
Imaging and Entertainment
The VX6100 really shines in the digital imaging department. The 640 x 480 camera features a digital zoom, white balance and brightness controls, and a flash. There's also a shutter self timer for getting your friends, as well as YOU, in shot.
The fun doesn't stop with taking pictures. The VX6100 is BREW enabled, meaning it supports games written on the BREW platform; many games are available via the Get It Now service. The phone also features customizable screen backgrounds so you can make your phone reflect your personality.
The LG VX6100 weighs 3.88 ounces and measures 3.56 x 1.90 x 0.94 inches. Its lithium-ion battery is rated at up to 3 hours of digital talk time, and up to 150 hours of digital standby time. It runs on the AMPS 800/CDMA 800/CDMA 1900 frequencies. The phone comes with a one year limited warranty.
