Verizon has recently made available the most recent incarnation of the LG Chocolate line of phones in the LG Chocolate Touch VX8575 . Like the previous generations, the Chocolate Touch has an emphasis on music, though it’s an altogether pretty rounded out phone.
Out of the box, the device seems slim and light, though not of any dimensions we haven’t seen before. The screen is a bright 3 inches with WQVGA resolution and support for 262k colors. It comes 1GB of internal music memory, though it’s expandable up to 16GB through MicroSD cards. Rounding out the main specs, you have a 3.2MP digicam, 3.5mm audio jack and a “Patented Dolby Mobile music system”.
The music features definitely stand out.
Not only is the music quality superb but the player is well designed; tracks are arranged in a logical manner and easily accessible commands allow you to control your music intuitively. Additionally you’ve got a couple of features I hadn’t come across before: “Rhythmical Beat” and “Join the band”. The former vibrates the handset to the beat of your music and works quite well. The latter opens up a screen with access to a set of drums and a sliding keyboard so you can add your own track to the music. Not all that useful, sure, but a fun music-centered way to spend a few minutes fooling around with your tracks.
The device is $79.99 after a $50 mail-in rebate and two-year customer agreement.
