Verizon is now offering a new device for its customers that’s going to be a good option for those who require a mobile phone but have no use for a smartphone phone. It’s called the LG Exalt LTE and it’s an LTE-only flip phone. That’s right, the handset only connects to Verizon’s 4G LTE network which means that there’s no 3G network option for phone calls.
The LG Exalt LTE is a pretty basic phone in that it has a 3 inch LCD display with a 400×240 pixel resolution. The handset has a 5 megapixel rear camera, no front camera, 8GB of onboard storage, and a 1,470mAh battery. It also has support for Wi-Fi calling.
The battery promises 10 days of standby time as well as up to 6 hours of usage time. The design itself is a combination of practicality and looks. It has big, tactile buttons which make it easy to use and dial.
The LG Exalt LTE has an integrated text-to-speech function which can read out text messages. The feature comes in handy when the user has to keep their hands free or when it’s difficult for them to see the display.
Verizon’s first 4G LTE basic handset can be purchased $168 at full retail price or for $0 down and $7 per month for 24 months. Customers will also have to pay a one-time activation fee of $30.
