I have been a long time Motorola user, tried the VX8300, went back to Mot.
Tried the VX8600, and I love it. I agree the speakerphone does not compare
favorably to Motorola, but that is this phones only fault. Reception is
excellent. I was not as pleased with the reception of the VX8300, but it was
not bad. The big difference is the sound quality. That is why I like
Motorola, that is why I like the VX8600. The VX8300 was not bad, the VX8600
is just better. The VX8600 also has a better feel to it. No dead spot on the
earpiece, which I definitely found on the VX8300.
