1:15 /

Offered for free after users sign a two-year contract, the LG Lucid 2 from Verizon has a 4.3-inch screen, a dual-core processor, and wireless charging capabilities.

Hello, everybody. It's Lynn La from CNET, and today we're gonna take a look at the LG Lucid 2 from Verizon Wireless. This 4.3-inch handset has an AH-IPS display with a 960x540 resolution. It runs Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean and features a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor. Its 2.46 ampere-hour battery gives you a reported talk time of about 21 hours. In addition, you get 1 gigabyte of RAM, 8 gigabytes of internal memory, and up to 64 gigabytes of expandable memory. On the back, there's a 5-megapixel camera with LED flash that's capable of shooting 1080p HD video, and on the front is a 1.3-megapixel camera. The 4G LTE device is also capable of wireless charging. However, you need to buy a special backplate from LG to enable it. Other features include Quick Memo, LG's notetaking app, 2-user interface options, and Bluetooth. If you're interested, the handset is currently available for free after users sign a 2-year contract with the carrier. Of contract, it goes for about $350. Again, I'm Lynn and you've been checking out Verizon's LG Lucid 2.
