It seems that LG has developed a habit of releasing a 'next-generation' phone, then a few months later, releasing an updated model that improves on it. This has happened most recently with the VX8600, followed a few months later by the VX8700. This was the case with the VX8000. While it is an excellent phone in its own right, a few months after its release, the VX8100 was released, which improved on the one major deficiency of the VX8000 - its large size. The VX8000 is a bulky phone, although some may appreciate this due to the enhanced durability it provides -- I have dropped this phone hundreds of times without any issue! The VX8100 also features bluetooth, which is missing from the VX8000. If you don't have a choice between the 8000 and 8100, the 8000 is still highly recommended - it has a beautiful large screen, the speakerphone works great, and the battery life is excellent. -- Robert H.
