If you're desperate for a touch screen phone and love your music, the LG VX8575 Chocolate Touch serves as a satisfactory follow-up to the LG Chocolate 3. But the phone doesn't stand out on Verizon Wireless' shelves in terms of innovative features; in fact, I've seen all of its features before. It offered good call quality and battery life, but its camera was mediocre at best, its touch screen wasn't as responsive as I'd like, and Web browsing was just shy of dismal. For $79.99, the Chocolate Touch a good phone for teenagers who want to load up their tunes for excellent music playback, fire off text messages, and do light Web browsing. But adults would be much better served by a more powerful smartphone like the HTC Droid Eris, which costs just $20 more (and requires a smartphone data plan), but provides a much richer Web browsing, multimedia, and messaging experience.

With each new model in the Chocolate series, we see continual improvements being made. The LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 continues the tradition with an updated music player, 3.2MP camera, HTML web browser, good call quality, and of course the 3” touchscreen. We still wish it were more closely based on the LG BL40, but the Chocolate Touch is defiantly geared more to the music lover. The music player is fun to use and we enjoyed its extra features, such as Join the Band, and the FM Radio. Overall, it is a worth purchase if you coming from earlier Chocolate models, or are looking for a uniquely styled touchscreen device.

A Nice phone but with some flaws

I bought an LG Samba 8575, which is basically the LG Chocolate Touch with a better interface. So far, I am impressed with this phone, mainly because this is my first touchscreen phone.

I bought an LG Samba 8575, which is basically the LG Chocolate Touch with a better interface. So far, I am impressed with this phone, mainly because this is my first touchscreen phone. Pros: Slim, very cool looking 1gb of storage MP3 player and 3.5mm headphone jack does its job as a phone Cons: The sound of the music The sound of the speakers The touchscreen takes time to get used to So far, I really love this phone. The touchscreen is hard to get used to, but it isn't my main problem with this phone. It is the sound of the music through my headphones that bugs me..My Zune has spoiled me because the music is so crisp and clean. I have messed with the equalizer and have it sounding somewhat good, but it still isn't crisp like it should be. I listen to metal and some rock, and the music sounds kind of low quality or sometimes sounds like it has static with certain highs. Another thing I noticed is it can't seem to keep a steady volume while listening to music. I;m not saying it changes volume, but sometimes during a song, the sound gets a little lower which doesn't happen with my Zune. This is why I have decided to use the MP3 player on my phone as a backup when my Zune dies. If your looking for a cheap phone and don't want to pay a pesky 3G service, this is the phone to get (Well I don't have to pay 3G for the LG Samba anyways). Less

I've had this phone for about 9 months, and I suppose it's okay. I'm a little biased towards my previous LG Scoop (which I loved, but then accidentally dropped in the toilet). I only bought the touch because my Scoop wouldn't work anymore. Bummer. The touch screen works well, although I'm just not personally a huge fan of them. My BIGGEST complaint however is that whoever designed this phone left it with one very big FLAW. And that is that the voice mechanism in which you speak into is so small and insignificant, I can NEVER prop this phone between my chin and shoulder. EVER. If I do, the person can't hear me, I have to repeat myself 5 times, and it's extremely frustrating. Seeing as how I'm a multi-tasker by nature, this is a huge issue for me. Had I known/realized this before purchasing the phone, I would have picked something else! Less

Pros: SUPER Battery Life Rugged Build Great Music and Camera features Dolby Mobile technology for great bass and excellent clarity Cons: Touch Screen is "Touchy" to use (No Pun Intended) Be nice to have a flash for the camera Had this phone for 2 weeks now and love it! Battery life is SUPER....seems to last forever. Body of the phone is built like a tank as it is METAL but not overly heavy(4.5oz). Yeah METAL....not aluminum or plastic! The Touch Screen is "Touchy" but works best with the back of your fingernail. Lets face it folks Touch Screen technology is relatively new...hard for me to give it a negative. **As for protecting the screen I HIGHLY recommend a ZAGG Invisible Shield** Holds up to a 16GB Micro SD Card....which is a TON of Photos and MP3 Music. 3.2MP Camera has a slew of features which is surprising for a Cell Phone Camera. White Balance....Panorama feature....Photo effects....various size options...ect...ect. MOST Cell Phones have a 1.3MP Camera that just has one setting for taking photos. Don't have a flash tho which is a disappointment. FM Radio is excellent with assignable Memory Preset buttons. Headphones are required for it to work as it uses the Headphone wire as a antenna. Has Voice command and other Voice features...also hearing aid friendly. As for the internet useage I dunno how it is as I didn't get mine for that. What sold me was the Batt Life...Rugged Build...Great MP3 handling....decent 3.2MP Camera and it was free with my start up with verizon. Dunno what's up with some of the bad reviews here on this? Maybe there are a few of these that are defective as is possible with any electric man made device. Maybe earlier versions had some quirks that are now corrected? No problems at all with mine thus far!! **Trust me if I have ANY problems I'll be back here to let everyone know!!** If your not gonna keep this in a case... If you don't want to spend the few bux for a screen protector... If you want a Phone you can beat the snot out of.... THIS PHONE WON'T BE THE ONE FOR YOU! Otherwise I HIGHLY recommend this phone!

I just got my new phone in the mail today. I must say I am very pleased. I had a first generation chocolate and LOVED it even with it's flaws. Now that I was able to get a new phone after my DARE the chocolate touch was the only one I really considered. It has everything I want in a phone. Touch screen, NO qwerty keyboard (hate it myself), good camera, lots of memory with my SD card, lightweight, and GOOD battery life. I must say one of my favorite parts of the phone is that it comes with TWO battery covers. I love purple so I like both the purple cover and the black one. Easy enough to change out. I also really like that it comes with two games already on it. Couldn't have picked two better games for myself. Rock Band and Sims 3. I'm an avid fan of both, so was quite surprised and pleased to see them on my phone already. Cons: I haven't had my phone very long so the only real con I have is the display. The contact/calls buttons along the bottom of the screen are bright colors and I've yet to find away to change them. I like things to match as much as possible and no picture or background I put on the screen really goes well with the bright colors. I also wish the camera had a flash feature for the *rare* time that I need a flash. Overall I am happy with my new phone and hopeful it will last me two years. Less

For the price, this phone looks like a steal: great MP3 features and 1GB storage, full touch screen, no required data plan. And when I first got the phone, I was fairly happy with it. However, after 7 months, I cannot recommend this phone. I first started to realize faults when the ease of the unlocking mechanisms triggered several pocket calls Later, the earpiece stopped working due to an erroneous detection of headphones. I couldn't make or receive phone calls. After several attempts at rapidly putting in and unplugging headphones to hope that it triggered it off it finally worked again, but I haven't been able to use it as an MP3 player since. But what really just put the nail in the coffin was that the touch screen wore out over time. At first the screen was somewhat resistive to touch, but I figured I'd get used to it. However this issue got worse over time and now, 7 months later, for several hours at a time it will not register a single touch. I cannot make phone calls, read or send text messages, or use any features other than receiving (but not making) a call and taking (but not viewing) pictures. It will sporadically work for awhile again, but as the problem gets worse and worse I need to find a new replacement phone quick. Even if you like the phone when you first use it, I strongly recommend against buying it. It sure has quantity of features, but perhaps that should trigger an alarm in your head as to the quality of them. Less

I had the EnV Touch for the last month. I returned it because it was just too bulky for me. Exchanging it for the Chocolate touch was the best phone decision I have ever made. This phone is small and powerful. The QWERTY keypad has spaces between the buttons that help reduce miss types. It is very accurate. Though the screen is not as high a resolution, it is surprisingly sharp and very vibrant. The music player is excellent. I used to get frustrated with my album art not showing up, but with this phone, if you put the album art in the photos folder on your SD card, when playing a song that doesn't have album art show up, you can manually put it as the album art. Also, the FM radio is another amazing feature. It comes through crystal clear. Drawing pad, note pad, better touch screen, incredible battery, very compact, no required data package; the list of positives of this phone go on and on. I have extensively used the EnV Touch, Versa, and DARE and I believe the Chocolate Touch is simply the best non PDA phone available for Verizon. Less

Dragging or scrolling on the Cholocate is near impossible. Here's a tip, use your finger nail to scroll and drag, it works for me at least 50% of the time. Not to mention texting is hard. At least it is better than the iphone where the autocorrect makes me seem like a 5 year sending incoherant texts. - The art of the artist on the now playing screen is too small. - Contact list is hard to navigate, I have about 200 contacts and finding a specific person through the phone book can be nerve racking because of the lack of a scroll wheel or the touch screen scrolling doesn't work. - Slow 3g applications, the browser, the navigation, the app that you can use to check your balance almost always crashes on me when I run it. In addition, be prepare to click on the back button a lot when you are using any browers, the touchscreen is not accurate. - I'm not able to synch items like my pictures/notes or install any apps through my data cable from my pc (I could be wrong, if someone could point me to a FAQ where I can install new apps, I'm not sure if there are any)" Exactly but i bought mine at the Verizon's store. You really can't text very well with this compared to an iPod Touch/iPhone or Blackberry Storm. The Touch Screen isn't really sensitive at all, you kind of have to mash on it for it to work and or use a pen or your nail for links when you're on the internet. I really dont' recommend this phone if you like to text or if you use your phone for internet. Less

pretty to look at, but thats it!

I got the chocolate touch online very good deal, but the phone itself is a pain to use. phone freezes, shuts off in the middle of something, can be difficult to use with drop down menus. i hate this phone and i hope to get rid of it asap. being that im a new verizon customer im hoping they will work with me to keep my service with them.

Took it back and got an HTC Droid Eris - more about that under the [[ASIN: B002VJJZ0Y HTC DROID Eris Android Phone (Verizon Wireless)]] reviews...for now, let's review the pros and cons of this phone: Pros: - Customizable EQ Settings: flat, bass boost, treble boost, vocal boost, and classical - Manual EQ--adjust EQ settings across 4 bands - Dedicated side key and shortcut key for easy music access - Sync music from V CAST Music with Rhapsody to phone - FM tuner (87.5-107.9 MHz) with RBDS support and 12 station presets - EZ Tip Calculator: you type in the amount of the bill, preset what percentage you want to tip, and tada! - you're done Cons: - Horrible sound, but this isn't going to be your main music player - your iPod, Zune or other music player will - Resistive touchscreen, therefore, no multi-touch (e.g. no zoom in/out in photo mode) - Dragging or scrolling on the Cholocate is near impossible. You have to use your fingernail (if you have any) to scroll and drag and this makes text way more difficult than it has to be - Contact list is hard to navigate; finding a specific person through the phone book can be nerve racking because of the lack of a scroll wheel &/or the touch screen scrolling not working Bottom line - save your money & the time you'll waste finding out that this phone isn't going to work for you.
