Android Gingerbread Operating System

Android Gingerbread

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.

  • Pre-loaded Android apps: Browser, Calculator, Calendar (Google or Corporate), Camera, Clock, Contacts, Email, Gallery, Messaging, Music, News & Weather, Phone, Settings, Video Player, Voice Dialer, Voice Search, YouTube

Top Customer Reviews

This is my first Droid phone, and my umpteenth LG phone. I've had it for over a month now.

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.

This phone really does the job for me. I can go online, keep up with my e-mail, check the weather forecast, use Google for navigation, take pictures, and add apps. Plus it has a slide-out keyboard for texting if you're clumsy typing on the touchscreen like I am! My phone conversations sound good, and the ringtones can be turned up quite loud so I can hear the phone when it's in my purse in a noisy store, or when I forget it in another room at home. (I favor the chime ringtones.) I'm selecting a hard case for it on Amazon now, to help protect it from breaking if I drop it. There are so many pretty cases that it's hard to choose one!

I upgraded to this phone a few months ago. I did have a Samsung Rouge. I liked my Rouge very much but wanted a smart phone after having the Rouge for over two year & some of the keys had started sticking on my keyboard. When I got the Enlighten I fell in love all over again. Not one thing I don't like yet. It works for me.

My wife got this phone and we had great hopes for it. It has great potential, but the horrible battery and lack of memory are killers. The camera is pretty bad too. Details below.

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.

This item has more possibilities inherent than I have been able to explore. Of course, I use it as a phone, but I also found and ordered a new laptop computer on it. A prediction has been made that these smartphones will replace our laptops. Because I find the keyboard hard to use, I think that I will keep my laptop for a long time.

I'm mostly annoyed that they listed this under basic phones when it is a CRAPPY version smart phone. Unless you have a memory card installed expect to miss MANY texts because there's no room. I had to delete all but 10 contacts so it could update. & I can only keep 2-4 texts before I stop receiving them. I'm sure with a memory card this would be great, but I didn't want a smart phone I wanted a basic phone with QWERTY so I could lower my monthly bill.

I have had this phone for a year now. I really like it. I love how it offers both the touch screen and keypad options. It is a great phone for people who are not familiar with all the technology but would like a android smartphone. It is very easy to use, and has great apps available. The camera is not the best, however not the worst either. It is perfect to use if you need to snap a few photos. However I would not use it to take picture of important events. Finally, the only reason that I did not give 5 stars is because of the lack of storage space for apps. Yes it does come with an SD card, however a lot of the apps that I use personally can't be moved to the card and therefore take up room. Most of the time I have to uninstall one app to use another, then when I am done I re-install the first one. That is my only big complaint about this needs more internal storage space.
