The "1-Minute" Review

When it comes to cell phones, are you decidedly “old school”? Do you want quality, but basic? Not interested in using your phone to post new blog entries to your website? I get it. I get it.

So does the LG Accolade. It’s a basic, competent brushed stainless steel flip that offers good call quality, simplicity and quality basics, basics and more basics.

The main, 1.7 inch display, (the display on the inside), offers 176 x 220 pixel display, which clearly renders key images suitably. The exterior display offers marginal 96 x 64 pixel resolution.

You also get a 1.3MP camera with night mode, white balance and some additional features, a 1,000 name capacity address book, alarm, calendar, to-do and task functions and other entry level functions.

This is a quality, well-built phone that, while it doesn’t have a lot of fancy, cutting edge features, offers the user quality and reliability.

If you are looking for a basic phone built the old-fashioned way, you’ll find it in the LG Accolade.

The LG Accolade is a basic cell phone with few features to offer. The flip design keeps this budget phone small but bulky. We were impressed with the long battery life that will last for several days on a single charge. A drawback to this device is the lack of media player and the limitations to the address book, but basic multitasking features and a 1.3MP camera enhance this cellular phone.

Good voice quality and long battery life

from PhoneArena

Since the introduction of the LG VX5200 back in 2005, there has been a newer model released by Verizon each year (except for 2009), including the VX5300, VX5400, and VX5500; up to the new Accolade VX5600 for 2010. There have been some changes in features between models as well, such as removing Analog support, going from Bluetooth 1.0 to 2.1+EDR, and increasing the camera from VGA resolution to 1.3MP, not to mention the cosmetic appearance. But one concept has remained within the series: that it is intended for people who are looking for a basic mobile phone at a low price and without a lot of added bells-and-whistles that they’ll never use. The only competition to the LG Accolade VX5600 currently would be from the Samsung Smooth and the Nokia 2705 Shade, as both are also basic phones at a low price...
