I sell phones as a Premium dealer, and LG's are with out a doubt the best make, and the 8700 is the best model yet. It doesn't have the durability of the 8300, but for how thin it is, it is top notch. I haven't had one person come back with a complaint on the phone yet. I highly recomend it to anyone.

PRO's

Thin yet durable
The buttons are flat, but they are large enough that typo's are rare
Brushed metal doesn't show scratches or finger prints
2.0 megapixel camera
Predictive text is the best in an LG, and it remembers all of your contacs, so you don't have to type names letter by letter
Battery life does well for a thin phone on CDMA network
Great reception
The LG user interface makes a lot of sense

CON's

The main screen isn't as detailed as the previous 8600, but it still has all the important info
SD card is behind the battery, which can be inconvenient
Battery heats up after constant use, but nothing too extreme

Over all it is a great phone! Nothing really worth complaining about. I doubt I'll use my upgrade even when it rolls around.
