Verizon Wireless has a long history of offering quality LG cell phones, and their latest is the LG Accolade VX5600. It's a flip phone that doesn't offer a lot of extras, but handles your basic calling needs with ease.
The Accolade features a blue and gray design, with internal and external displays. The external display, which measures just a tad more than 1-inch diagonally, displays a clock, battery and signal strength, and caller ID and works as a viewfinder for taking self-portraits.
Phone features include support for Bluetooth, so you can use the Accolade with a hands-free headset, and voice commands and dialing. It also comes with direct access to Microsoft's Bing search engine, and supports Verizon's VZ Navigator for turn-by-turn directions. In addition, you get access to Verizon's Family Locator service.
The Accolade's 1.3-megapixel camera features a 2x digital zoom and lets you adjust some basic settings, but it does not capture video.
