Cellphones: LG VX8300 vs. Motorola Razr

Filed under: Technology — Rob @ 12:14 pm

Just got an LG VX8300 flip-phone with a 1.3 MP camera (and flash) on 7/19.  For no apparent reason, it upped and died on 7/22.  Predictably, I had already deleted all my contacts from my old phone.  So when Verizon swapped it for a new unit on 7/24 it was impossible to copy any contacts to the new unit. 

Now that I’ve manually entered in about 40 contacts, I’m already thinking of switching to a Motorola Razr.  I have until 8/3 to make up my mind.  I guess I’m deliberating more about the size (flatness) of the phones, method of carrying (belt-clip styles), VZ Navigator capability and whether (or not) Verizon will exchange my LG accessories for Motorola equivalents.  Am not too concerned about SIM card capability.  But that’s probably because I don’t know much about it and have never in my life downloaded music from anywhere to anything.

If anyone stumbles across this and would like to weigh-in on the pros & cons of these two phones I’d certainly appreciate reading your views.  I’m particularly interested in their comparative reliability and sturdiness.



  1. I just ordered one and I will let you know.
    I have a friend who has the razr and he says that the battery life is awful.

  2. Starhawk, I’m looking forward to your opinion. I see Verizon has just announced exclusive availability of the LG “Chocolate.” It’s too much for me, I’m sure.

    So far, my replacement LG VX8300 is working fine.
