Verizon's First LTE Flip Phone Is Dumb
LG is giving Verizon its first ever LTE smartphone in the form of the LG Exalt LTE. It is also trying to bring flip phones back to its glory days. However, riding on a trend takes more than just bringing back a popular design particularly when it comes to phones. And it seems like LG did not think this one through.
The LG Exalt LTE is powered by a Qualcomm processor with a 1.1GHz clock speed. It only has 8GB of built-in storage though it has a microSD slot which allows the flip phone to expand its memory up to 32GB. 9to5Google also mentioned that the LG Exalt LTE comes with a 3.0-inch WQVGA TFT Color LCD display with 400 x 240-pixel resolution. It is also equipped with a 5-megapixel primary camera and a 1470 mAh removable battery. Obviously, the LG Exalt LTE flip phone is not at all impressive with regards to what's inside it. Worst of all, the Exalt LTE only connects to Verizon's 4G LTE network.
The LG Exalt LTE has no support for 3G CDMA network. This basically means the clamshell-designed Exalt has no 3G network option for phone calls. WCCFTech noted that Verizon is heading the opposite direction with regards to its CDMA network. As a matter of fact, Verizon has already indicated that it is shutting down parts of its CDMA in a couple of years which will allow the carrier to focus on LTE.
The problem with the LG Exalt LTE smartphone is that it failed to take advantage of the current nostalgia bandwagon. Flip phones were all the rage once upon a time with phones such as the Motorola Razr lording it over the field. Samsung already jumped on the bandwagon with its own modern flip phone, the W2017.
While the specifications of the LG Exalt LTE are nothing to be excited about, it does work for its target market or at least that's what LG and Verizon believe. The LG Exalt LTE flip phone is worth $168 and is available on Verizon's official website. A Verizon phone should always come with a Verizon cell phone plan, to learn more about which subscription is right for you, read a review would be the best way.
