>> Ken: Hi, I'm Ken German, Senior Editor here at CNET.com. Today we're gonna take a first look at the LG Accolade also called the VX5600; this is a new phone for Verizon Wireless service. What we have here is a very midrange phone, very simple in design, pretty simple in features. A basic flip-phone; this is supposed to be sort of a blue color it looks a little more bluish silver to me. Also here we have a reflective surface on the top. It does kind of catch your fingerprints pretty easily; it smudges and catches the light though. On the back a pretty plain rear-face. The camera's actually located above the external display. I thought that the external display was fine maybe could have been a bit bigger for the type of phone but it is full color so it shows everything you need. Inside, very nice display. It is a little smaller but it is pretty bright and vibrant, colorful, shows graphics pretty well, menus are very easy to use, simply designed. We have the icon format here. Down below you'll find the keypad controls and navigation buttons. Nice navigation array, it's pretty spacious, pretty tactile so very simple to use. I didn't have any problems, didn't misdial and was able to use by feel, which is very nice. Down below the keypad buttons, very large numbers on this keypad. LG usually does a pretty good job by giving us large numbers. Letters are a little smaller but the whole thing is brightly back-lit so you shouldn't have any problems. Inside you'll find midrange features like Bluetooth, speaker phone, organizer options, there's the camera and, of course, the voice dialing so if you're looking for a midrange phone that's easy to use with just a couple extra features besides making calls this is a good option. I'm Ken German and this is the LG Accolade for Verizon Wireless. ^E00:01:31

The good: The LG Accolade is well made and offers agreeable performance. The feature set is functional.
The bad: The LG Accolade doesn't record video and photo quality is unremarkable. Speakerphone quality is a bit distorted.
