For our office what are the differences between the Polycom VVX 500 and Polycom SoundPoint IP 550 phones?

Re: Phone Differences?

Hello SnellProp,

welcome to the Polycom Community.

The difference should be visible in the data sheets:


SPP550 or VVX500


The biggest difference is that the VVX500 has a touch screen and color display and the ability to add a Camera.

Please ensure to provide some feedback if this reply has helped you so other users can profit from your experience.
