Android Gingerbread Operating System
The LG Enlighten runs the Android 2.3 operating system (dubbed Gingerbread) which features a cleaner, more refined interface with new icons, improved top notification bar, and more intuitive navigation.
Multitasking in Gingerbread allows you the ability to run more than one app at a time. If you're playing a game, you can easily switch to an incoming e-mail and then switch back to the game without losing your place. And like the previous version of Android ("Froyo"), Gingerbread provides support for Adobe Flash Player 10.1 for access to the full Web.
A new onscreen keyboard makes it easier to type thanks to additional spacing between the keys and larger font sizes. And the more you use the keyboard, the easier typing will be as the enhanced suggest feature records previous input history to make better suggestions.
The LG Enlighten also brings one-touch access to the popular Google mobile services you use every day. It also provides easy access to both personal and corporate e-mail, calendars, and contacts supported by Exchange Server and Gmail. And through Android Market, you'll get access to thousands of useful applications, widgets, and fun games to download and install on your phone, with many more apps being added every day.

Calls: Call quality is EXCELLENT, better than any other phone I've had. I can hear every word perfectly, and the speakerphone on it is very loud. I love this phone for its volume. Haven't had a single dropped call.
Texting: Superb. I hate touch screen texting, and it has that option if you're so inclined. The slide out keyboard is great. It does take some getting used to, as the bottom row of the qwerty is to the left and right of the space bar. That took about a week to get the hang of. Now I don't need to even look at the keyboard to type at all. The buttons have a very nice feel to them. And the screen does a good job knowing when to rotate the screen for you.
Web: It's fast, what can I say. I'm spoiled when it comes to internet speed, and although this doesn't instantaneously display webpages (takes a few seconds to load pages that are heavy on graphics) it's great enough for me. The youtube app is really quick, too.
Screen: Very responsive. I did purchase a screen protector and hard case for it, looked pretty slick. For the record, I'm a clumsy fool, and I've dropped this phone three times (all before I got the case.) One time, it fell off the hand rail at the side of the toilet at work (oops) and hit the floor face down, screen first, about 4 feet. I thought for sure it was a goner. Not a single scratch! And it works perfectly. (As I'm typing this, I glanced at the phone, and the paint on the extra hard case I bought is starting to peel. Eff this cheap stuff, I need to get a new case. Not the phone's fault of course. :)
Navigation: No issues whatsoever.Read more ›
1) Slider keyboard
2) Nice screen
1) The battery generally will not make it through a day, even if you disable most of the smart phone features like background data and location. Carry a charger. This alone is a killer. What good is a phone if it is dead every time you need it?
2) There is almost no memory for apps. Yes, you can put some on the SD card, but not if you use it with a widget or any type of background activity. The required google apps that you can't get rid of or move eat most of what little there is. And when it runs out, you can't even send and receive txt messages until you delete some apps.
3) The camera is sad. Poor pictures and no flash limit its utility.
We have 2 other android phones in the family, and this is the only one that is so poor.
