Well, here’s something you don’t see everyday. The QWERTY equipped LG Enact is now available on Verizon for $19.99 on a new two year contract. Alternatively, you can purchase this budget level smartphone outright for $349.99.

If you’re like me, getting in s two year contract with a budget phone like this wouldn’t be ideal with all of the new gadgets constantly releasing. Nonetheless, the LG Enact really isn’t that bad when it comes to hardware.

Under the hood of the LG Enact is a 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 processor, a 5-megapixel rear camera, 8GB of internal storage, a microSD card slot to expand the handset’s storage capabilities, and a 2,460 mAh battery. On the software side of things, we’re looking at a skinned version of Android 4.1.

One of the most compelling things about the LG Enact is probably its battery. Sure, it’s a chunky smartphone, but a battery this big in such a low spec’d phone will make the device last for days. Surely Qualcomm’s crazy power saving features will help that along as well.

While this might not be a phone that will appeal to the masses, those who love having a QWERTY equipped device will thoroughly enjoy the LG Enact, especially with that really large battery.

What do you think about the LG Enact? In fact, what are your thoughts on QWERTY smartphones in general? Are you a fan? Let me know in the comments! I’d love to hear your thoughts.

    Used to be qwerty sideslider fan, had several but only Xperia Pro had great keyboard. The size of today’s smartphones would provide lots of space between keys, Sony should slap a keyboard on Xperia ZL and make it the Xperia Pro II. Or what about a waterproof sideslider, that would be something new.

    I wonder why Samsung doesn’t have an international high spec sideslider, they have lots of redundant models but not this, weird.

    Why doesn’t someone just make one of these sliders with some great specs, one you can actually compare to today’s top-of-the-line? I’m ready to move away from QWERTY keyboards (gonna miss it), but if someone were to just quickly throw out a beast with it, maybe I wouldn’t have to give it up ;)

    HTC G2 (Desire Z) is the most underrated phone ever! Best slider!
