Top 7 Best Texting Phones 2014



Phones and smartphones with a physical keyboard are increasingly rare, so this best Texting phone list may also include smartphones with a display larger than 4.5 inches (because they make it easier to use the on-screen keyboard) and some models with wet-finger tracking or water-resistant smartphones, a definite plus when you have to text with moist or wet hands. However, if any good regular phone includes a physical frontal or slide-out keyboard, it will also be listed.

#1. The NEC Terrain

Description :

A texting smartphone seemingly designed for heavy duty field work, the NEC Terrain encases an array of mid-level features within a military-grade body and a Corning Gorilla glass frame. It is powered by a 1.5GHz dual-core processor as well as a 1900mAh Lithium-ion battery, which are both relatively better than what others within this class have to offer. Touchscreen usage (along with a physical qwerty keyboard) allows navigation through its enterprise software (for business), 5-megapixel camera and 4G internet capability as well as other typical mobile features.

Description :

Along with a beefed-up 2460mAh battery and a rare slide-out QWERTY keyboard (most new smartphones are touch only), the LG Enact offers a Starter Mode interface which is designed to ease in smartphone neophytes (and a Standard Mode for power users). It also comes with the standard mid-range fare: 4.1.2 Jelly Bean OS, dual core 1.2 GHz processor (with an Adreno graphic processor), 1 GB of RAM, 8GB memory, 5-megapixel camera (with a 1920 x 1080 video recorder), and a 4-inch TFT screen. With these modest features, it should sit comfortably well among the second-tier Android phones.

#4. The Pantech Vybe

Description :

The Vybe might have been intended as a starter phone, as it features an Easy mode that converts the UI into a simple list of features on a single home screen. It also sports a user-set command button on the side, providing quick access to your favorite app. A physical QWERTY-pad hides under its 3.2-inch touchscreen, making it one of the rare remaining feature phones equipped with a physical QWERTY keyboard. Pre-installed Facebook, Twitter and AT&T services also add to its features, with a low-tech 3-megapixel (CMOS) camera to boot.

Description :

The BlackBerry Q10, one of the first two smartphones to run the BlackBerry 10 OS, sports the QWERTY keyboard BlackBerry is famous for. It features a 3.1-inch Super AMOLED touchscreen with a rather unique square resolution of 720 x 720. Main specs are generally above-average. For example, its video camera can record at full HD (1080p) resolution and it has a microHDMI out port for large screen playback. Its internal memories are also interesting, with a 2GB RAM and 16GB end-user storage.

Description :

With its 720 x 720 display at a dpi of 329, the Q5s display makes it to the iPhone class. A dual-core 2.4 Ghz Snapdragon S4 processor and an impressive quoted talk time of 750 minutes complete the picture. Speaking of pictures, this apparently powerful texting phone only sports a 5-megapixel main camera (with 4-element lens), probably an indication of its corporate target clientele where camera phones are not always welcome.

Description :

The Gravity Q is a classic basic texting phone with a slide-out keyboard. The specs are nothing to call home about, with only a 2-megapixel camera and a 3-inch display with 256k colors. There is also a touch screen, which makes it a slightly more advanced basic phone, in a way.
