LG Enlighten Will Be Verizon’s Mid-Line Slider Running Gingerbread, We Have The Full Spec Sheet

Remember that LG Enlighten post from a couple of hours ago? Looks like one of our readers knows everything there is to know about it, including having an entire internal PDF spec sheet on the device. You can look at this phone, one of two ways basically: it’s a 800MHz Gingerbread rocking lag beast, or a device which will be launched August 25th (supposedly) to indirect Verizon stores, and not be heard from again. Hello, new Ally?

Wasn’t there a 1GHz requirement for Gingerbread anyways? It’s still a nice little phone running GB, and you never know, people love sliders. Look over the specs, see what you think and let us know in the comments section below. Quick note to Thunderbolt owners, feel free to be frustrated since we still unfortunately have no word on a Gingerbread update.

Cheers ___!

    Will this phone require a $30 data plan or will it be like the other entry level Android the Samsung Gem and not require the data package to use?

    Say what you will, it’s hilarious that this mid-line phone is going to launch w/ the latest version of the OS while high end phones didn’t & still don’t have it officially.

      probably will have good battery life also.

        It will. My voyager could go 3 days w/ out a charge when I first bought it. Granted it didn’t run everything my Droid runs but still….

          Ha! Was rocking the Voyager too..about on my third one when some punk stuck an uzi in my gut and ripped me off! Caught em though with location enabled! :-) This LG actually looks decent…thats what the Merge was supposed to be also huh, 800 mhz?

    It seems LG’s not even trying anymore.

    I just paid $22.85 for an iPhone 4-32GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic Lumix GF 1 Camera that we got for $38.76 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 40 inch LED TV to my boss for $674 which only cost me $62.81 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentHub.com

    Slower processor, smaller screen…..yet it still has a bigger battery than the ThunderBolt. Speechless.

    Here’s what I want.
    The Droid Doppelganger.
    It would have 2 builds.  One would have a keyboard, one would not, but both would have the exact same specs.  That way both sides of that argument get what they want.
    Screen size somewhere in the neighborhood of 4 to 4.3″.  1280×720 or greater resolution.  1.2 to 1.5 GHz dual core.  1 to 2 GB of RAM.  32 GB micro included.  8 to 16 GB internal.  Vanilla Android 2.3.4 or whatever is highest at release.  Unlocked bootloader.  8 to 12 MP back facing camera, 1 to 2 MP front facing camera.  And all of the other accoutrements that I’m forgetting.  Also, a removable battery that can be recharged wirelessly by human emotion.  Or, well… at least a battery that’s worth a damn.
    I’d shell out $400 with a new 2 year contract renewal next week if it existed.

      Even better, they could make one phone only, and produce an attachable sliding keyboard “backpack” for the people who want a keyboard.

    • irl panda

      2 GB of ram is unrealistic at this point, and a 12MP shooter with a regular cell phone camera lens would take garbage pictures.

    Yeah this phones pretty shitty..

    I hate my ally, literally the worst phone i’ve ever had

    800MHz and 150user memory. AAAHHH NO!!!

    They’re giving this phone away, right?

    • Anonymous

      They should pay us to use it.

    There is nothing wrong with this phone, but it is not the type that people that frequent this site would get.

    My ex got the Ally, because she wanted a smartphone, but is not a huge techie, and did not want to spend that much.  If the price point is right, this thing will sell.  Not at the numbers some of the beasts we are waiting for, but their will always be a place for phones like this.

    What’s sad is this will probably be easily rooted and have no issues with bypassing the bootloader.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Ricky-Lee/100001315609857 Ricky Lee

      still no root for lg enlighten ! As long as this phone has been out. Simply put the developers aren’t even remotely interested in this phone…This device was D.O.A. dead on arrival.

      • Jailyssia_

        wow

  • @JayCity216

    Man….they took the screen size back to the T-Mobile G1 days…

    LG: Lags Good

      My son had a G1 and the quadrant score was 145….   :):):)

    Nice…entry level LG running more up to date software than VZW’s “flagship” 4G phone….way to go Big Red

  • Anonymous

    Who would want this over a droid 3 unless it is free on release? then again the droid 2 which you could get for free most likely is better then this in every aspect.

    • Anonymous

      the droid3 is already free from letstalk w new vzw cusotmers, & it’s BOGO form vzw

      • meth feld

        this really is annoying to know…..3 weeks after paying full freight one sees it can be had for free.  For all its flaws(?) at least when buying an iphone you didnt feel like a moron 3 weeks later

    The keyboard is the exact same as the LG Ally, which is a great keyboard don’t get me wrong. This company is hands down worse than any other company when it comes to updates to their phones. I owned an ally for quite a while and they gave us froyo about 2 months after gingerbread came to light. They are what Samsung was last year.

    Almost has the same specs as the OG Droid.

    • http://www.droid-life.com Tim-o-tato

      Minus the processor, and Gingerbread lol

      • Anonymous

        Fine. Has the same specs as a ROM’d OG Droid.

      • hkklife

        Lower screen size and resolution than OG Droid too.  And looks like even less internal storage and probably a weaker camera too.  Other than “official” GB and a better keyboard, I see no reason to get this thing on a contract. Just get an $85 pre-owned OG Droid contract-free instead and install Peter Alfonso’s 2.3.5 ROM on it. 

  • http://www.facebook.com/Richard.A.McKenzie.III Richard Albert McKenzie III

    If you want a keyboard and GB get a droid 3.

    • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

      Precisely.

    • Knightcrusader

      Or if you want 4G, get a Stratosphere when it comes out next month (assuming the SCH-i405 is the Stratosphere).

      • Anonymous

        Im regretting my D3. had no idea the stratos was coming to vzw until last night

      • http://profiles.google.com/nerdydesi Nerdy Desi

        Too bad it sounds like the Stratosphere will be single-core, most likely. Damn it Verizon, you release a dual-core slider that’s 3G only and then a 4G slider that’s single-core? Urgh!

  • http://www.facebook.com/people/Michael-Forte/542650247 Michael Forte

    So pretty much an Ally 2? Lame..

      I got all excited with the title because my wife only likes LG… but it’s basically the Ally with GB… sigh
