LG Enact Review
With most smartphones touting large displays (and large prices), it’s nice to see manufactures still making affordable phones with physical QWERTY keyboards. Enter the new LG Enact, which is available from Verizon Wireless for only $20 with a 2-year contact. We’ve seen a few QWERTY devices from LG over the years, including the LG Enlighten back in 2011, but this time around LG has increased the features (though not high-end) with a slightly larger 4” display, 1.2GHz dual-core processor, 5MP camera, and naturally can use Verizon 4G LTE data network. Though the Enact does stand with some competition, mostly from the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II, Pantech Marauder, and even the Motorola DROID 4.
Included in the retail box is the LG Enact VS890 smartphone, 2460mAh battery, wall charger, microUSB cable, and user guides.
The overall appearance of the LG Enact isn’t going to win any awards, but we like the two-tone black and gray combination and we appreciate the textured back and sides, which allow for a firm grip, when compared to the slippery feeling of the Samsung Galaxy Stratosphere II. The device is also fairly compact and fits comfortably in the hand, but it does feel a bit heavy for extended use, coming in just under 6oz.
