The LG Enact is an entry-level Android smartphone, but will feature a 5-row sliding QWERTY keyboard and a 2460mAh battery. While the LG Exalt is a basic flip-phone, but will feature a large 3" 400x240 pixel internal display and an LED external display.

This is a shot in the dark -- the Enact looks a lot like the LG Mach on Sprint or Boost Mobile (with 6 reviews, the phone isn't wowing its owners).

As for qwerty sliders, the problem is the phone is heavy, bulky, and appeals to a shrinking user base.

According to the original rumors, it could actually worse than the Photon Q, mainly because of the resolution. 480 x 800 compared to the qHD on the Photon. Other than that, it'll either be one of the lower end S4 Plus (1-1.2 GHz dual core Krait with Adreno 305) or a Snapdragon 400 (1.2-1.4 GHz quad core A7 with Adreno 305 or 1.2-1.7 GHz dual core Krait with Adreno 305), compared to the 1.5 GHz dual core Krait and Adreno 225 on the Photon Q, it's definitely not something worth upgrading to.

Also, don't always use the mAh rating on a battery as an absolute guarantee for battery life. My Optimus L9 has a 2150 mAh battery, but my GS3 was capable of outlasting the L9 despite having a slightly smaller battery, a larger display, and higher clocked processor.

Yes LG needs better software optimization for those big juicy batteries of theirs.

If Verizon allows the Exalt on prepaid, I would sign up for the $35/month plan.

I suspect the phone comes with 3G data speeds and has a decent web browser. I can live with a 2 MP shooter but would prefer 3.2 MP for better quality videos.

The Exault actually seems like an interesting flip phone. The large screen kind of reminds me of Japanese flip phones. Although the resolution isn't as good as well as the camera. Seems like a nice backup phone though.
