I recently got the LG VX5200 with Verizon Wireless, and it works well so far.

PROS: Bright and vibrant screens inside and out, sturdy feel, camera is average (for a cell phone)
CONS: Side buttons stick out a bit too far. You can't use the outside screen to take a picture of yourself, it just goes back to the main screen when you close it. The outer LCD stays on while the battery is charging (this seems like it would make it charge slower).


The phone feels sturdy, and it doesn't seem like it will break if you squeeze it really hard (I haven't tested this). One thing that I have trouble with is the side buttons, they get pressed almost every time I go to answer my phone, and my calls are sometimes very quiet because I have accidentally pressed the volume buttons.
Score: 8/10

I have no problems viewing either screen, whether it's the middle of the day or the middle of the night. 65,000 colors is definetly enough for me!
Score: 10/10

Call Quality:
I haven't experienced a dropped call yet on this phone! The most reception I get is 1-2 bars, but that's just because I live in small-town, New Hampshire. I can hear the person very clearly (unless I've pressed the volume buttons by mistake), and you couldn't ask for a better speakerphone.
Score: 10/10

While this phone doesn't have Bluetooth, an MP3 player, or other fancy gadgets, it works well for what it was built to do: make calls. The camera is okay, but I wouldn't throw my Polaroid away just yet if I were you.

The camera is nothing to write home about. You can choose from 3 resolutions: 640x480, 320x240, or 160x120. It does have flash and 2x zoom, and you can change the brightness before you take a picture. It also has a self-timer, but I'm sure I'll never use that.
