Don’t buy it for your first Android experience. And I say that with all seriousness. In the day when the Motorola Droid came out, HTC released the Droid Eris. It was a thinner sleeker looking phone for Android. The problem was its screen was smaller, the processor was terrible and it had no nice features. So the people who had the phone blamed Android for being slow, unresponsive and buggy(OK, android is kinda buggy).
Enter the LG Enlighten. The specs are pretty weak considering what you can get these days in a mobile phone. It will be $79 on contract for two years. I would urge you to go spend the $100 on a Fascinate or Droid X, or even $50 on a Moto Droid1 in used but good condition before getting this. They will all perform better and wont place you in two years of misery. Here are the specs:
- Android 2.3 Gingerbread
- 3.2-inch touch screen display (320 x 480)
- 800 MHz processor for performance and multi-tasking
- Full QWERTY keyboard with large keys for easy typing
- Adobe® Flash® 10
- 3G Mobile Hotspot allows users to share a data connection with up to five Wi-Fi-enabled devices
- Seven customizable home screens with shortcuts to apps, favorites and widgets
- Customizable apps menu
- 3.2-megapixel autofocus camera and camcorder
The only thing this phone has going for it is the qwerty kb, and I haven’t used it to see if it looks nice or not. The phone will be available Sept 22nd online and Sept 29 in stores for $79.99 on contract.
