CNET First Look
Gain some clarity with Verizon's LG LucidAlthough it's disappointing that the LG Lucid isn't shipped with Android ICS, it has a reasonable price, a zippy processor, and runs on 4G LTE.
Yes. It's another Android phone recently released with ice cream sandwich but for 80 bucks you get tons of features in it's sole design. I'm Lyn from CNET bringing you guys the LG Lucid from Verizon. The LG Lucid is an Android (??) brand phone that has a bright 4 inch gorilla glass touch screen that's responsive and smooth. Colors and vibrantly displayed and graphics are crisp and clean. The phone runs on Verizon's 4G LTE network and it has 1.2 gigahertz dual core processor inside. It also has 1 gigabyte of RAM so browse in the web multi tasking through apps and taking pictures feels pretty snappy. The handset is powered by 1700 mili AMP power battery with a reported talk time of 8 hours. On the back of the phone you could see there's this black and purple stripe design that glitters in the sunlight. This may not be for everyone but I personally don't mind it. There is also a 5 megapixel camera and an LED flash. The camera can record in full HD 10 ADP video. There's also a front facing VGA camera for vanity shots and video chatting. The device comes with a few customizable features that iPhone... like some preloaded themes, different wallpapers when your battery is charging and it's idle widget. A few things that I was little disappointed with was the (app?) speaker audio quality. Videos, music and voices sound a little tiny when you put it on speaker. Also it's a little heavy in the hand. It weighs about 5 ounces and it's 4.5 inches thick but as previously mentioned the phone is reasonably priced. After you sign it to your contract and send a mailing (rebate?) the phone will cost you $80. Again I'm Lyn from CNET bringing you guys the LG Lucid.
