-I'm Nicole Lee, senior associate editor for CNET.com, and this is a first look at the LG Enlighten for Verizon wireless.
The LG Enlighten is treated as a basic entry level android phone for Verizon wireless, but just because it's entry level doesn't mean it's a bad phone.
In fact the phone comes with a slide out QWERTY keyboard as well as android 2.3 Gingerbread on the front here is a 3.2-inch display
with 320 x 480 resolution.
It's pretty colorful and pretty sharp as you can see here, but it's not as sharp of course as higher end devices.
The phone does comes with 800 mega hertz processor, but it does feel a little bit sluggish when navigating the phone.
There's also a little bit of lag when starting up certain applications.
Underneath the display, you do get the usual android shortcut keys that correspond to the menu home and back search functions.
On the side here, you do get the volume rocker.
On the top, you do get
the 3.5-mm headset jack as well as the power and [unk] button and of course the phone slide up sideways to reveal a full QWERTY keyboard.
The QWERTY keyboard as you can see here is quite roomy.
In fact, the keys are all separated and it raised above the surface.
So, it's really easy to text and dial with speed.
As we mentioned, the Enlighten shoots with Android 2.3 gingerbread, but it doesn't have the vanilla android interface on it.
It has LG's own custom UI on it.
We did find the LG's
custom user interface makes it a little bit easier to understand, but android curious will be disappointed.
You get up to 7 customizable home screens and then main menu is divided into different categories.
On the back of the phone is a 3.2-megapixel camera.
Features of the LG Enlighten include the aforementioned 3.2-megapixel camera.
It also has a built in video recorder as well as 3G in the form of EVDO Rev-A.
It has GPS, Wi-Fi,
and 3G mobile hotspot for up 5 different Wi-Fi enabled devices.
Perhaps the best part about the LG Enlightened is that the phone is available for free with a new 2-year service agreement with Verizon wireless.
While the display may not be the sharpest and performance made you lacking, they do think it's a descent entry level android phone for the price.
