Let me preface this by saying that I bought the phone in September of last year so I've spent quite a bit of time with this phone. At first I absolutely loved it. It was my first smartphone, and it was everything I wanted. I was drawn to the phone because it had a keyboard like I was used to, but also a nice touch screen. A year later and I'd literally pay someone to take this phone off of my hands. I'll start with the pro's of this phone, since there's not many.

-The screen is still pretty receptive after a year.
-The phone is durable. I don't have a case on mine since the case broke.
-It has a keyboard.
-The "Flashlight" widget is probably one of the most helpful things ever. Seriously, that light is so bright it's like the sun set and when it rose it was trapped inside your phone.

-This phone is constantly freezing up. And I mean constantly. Even if I clear my recent apps, it lags when I try to pull up certain things. Sometimes I have to hit the app twice, even though the screen displays that I chose it the first time, to get it to open.

-Snapchat can never open my camera, and requires me to restart the phone often. Now this may have to do with Snapchat, but I uninstalled and reinstalled and the same problem persisted.

-When I open up a text message, the screen is automatically at the very first message ever sent, rather than scrolling down to where you left off the conversation.

-My email likes to tell me a message from 2011 is a new one (this could be an issue with email rather than the phone, but it is annoying)

-This phone has like no memory. Even with an SD card installed, I can't download too many apps or I just run out of room.

We have 2 of these in my family now. Bottom line is this is a great phone.

Strong Points:
* Battery life. This phone goes all day and then some with normal use. Beats any other phone we've had in our family.
* Physical slider keyboard
* 4G data is fast
* Plenty of memory for normal use
* Plenty of CPU speed
* Notifications system is very good
* Built in apps for messaging, email, etc are all very good
* Screen is clear and crisp. Not OLED or super hi res, but fine in general
* INEXPENSIVE! This phone is a lot of capability for the cost!

Weak points:
* keyboard is not great. Keys are flat and it is easy to press the wrong one.
* Easy to hit back button when sliding keyboard open

Is it the greatest phone for games or movies? Nope. But it's a great smart phone if you're not a super power user or just have to have the fastest, highest res phone out there. But it will still be going strong when those high end ones are dead or hunting for a charge!

It would be easy to equally complain about and praise my new LG Enact, but really, the complaining would be more nitpicky/new user discomfort. The complaints are a. mainly due to being unfamiliar with this phone and b. the higher level Android OS on board. Drawbacks: a few minor ones, that don't outweigh the benefits. Some of this is also that I waited a good long while to get rid of the old phone, in phone time, over 2 years is at least a couple generations...

This phone was free for me on my new 2 year plan, and I didn't want to upgrade to a fancier, more powerful one and lose the keyboard, so free is good. Not the most powerful/sexy phone out there, repeat, free is good, and with the better Android/overall upgraded tech just due to 2 years later, it's really fine.
When the hybrid of laptop and tablet reaches a further perfection level that will be where I go for latest/greatest. My friends show me their slim, bigger screen, wave your hand over it, etc. phones, but I use mine mostly to talk for my business, access internet, text and messages on the road. Not much of a media on the phone user; I like my laptop at home or on worksite for that. Occasionally, I might stream some audio on my phone while driving, and I might just be able to connect phone to my car speakers with USB port (which I have mainly been using with a memory stick--a great bonus I didn't know I had on my car until about a month after purchase...but I digress---also spent a bit extra for onboard BlueTooth, never used...I dislike the garbled sound quality on inbound calls from my friends using bluetooth while driving....I'm told most versions of bluetooth are usually not the best except as options on luxury vehicles, more digression).

BOTTOM LINE: If you NEED a QWERTY, you'll LOVE this phone!

PROS: This is a stylish, perfectly-sized, durable, user friendly phone with removable LONG-LIFE battery. Enough built-in features and modern enough GUI to feel fresh. Features a RARE and well-executed QWERTY keyboard

CONS: Not the biggest, fastest, trendiest, or most feature laden phone of all time, so not a great choice for the 'uber-techie" in your family. At times, cellphone reception can be sketchy in low coverage areas


There are a few sleeker, faster, more feature driven phones out there, but I gave up trying to ever type anything of substance on on these miniscule touch screen keyboards. I needed a new phone and promised myself a REAL keyboard. Here, Verizon customers basically have two options: DRIOD4 and LG Enact.

I tried them both and LG wins hands down!

I originally went against my gut, trusting biased (if not paid) internet reviewers rather than my gut and went with the DROID4. It somehow got better reviews, but trust me, the phone pales in comparison. Upon arrival I was immediately disappointed by the DROID4. Straight out of the box it looked quite dated looking and was too heavy and chunky to comfortably slip into a pants pocket. Additionally, I found its Motorola Android interface very cold and uninspired.

Went into the V-Store and traded out for the LG ($35 charge for that BTW) and couldn't have been happier. I've always felt the iPhone is darn near the perfect size, weight, and performance regarding a blend of real-world pocket-portability and day-to-day performance; however, I no longer support Apple (long story)...
