LG Lucid 2 Review: Android aimed at the mid-range

By Andrew Kameka on April 19, 2013, 2:06 AM

The original LG Lucid was behind the curve when it launched on Verizon Wireless last year. It had the 4G LTE connectivity that Verizon made requisite for all Android smartphones, but it was running the outdated Android 2.3 Gingerbread at a time when users were clamoring for the months-old Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich.

The LG Lucid 2 arrives just over a year later and is thankfully closer to what's expected of a modern smartphone. The device has 4G LTE, Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, plenty of software additions courtesy of LG, and a favorable price for someone looking for a new Android smartphone (free with a two-year contract). Is it favorable enough? The LG Lucid 2 is a pleasing upgrade to last year's model, but it has to stand up against this year's competition. You may be surprised to learn how tall the Lucid can stand.

Seems almost like a Galaxy S2 when it comes to specs and looks. I'd definitely give this a shot if I wasn't set on the HTC One or Galaxy S4.

I don't know why all these companies keep releasing phones. It seems like there are 10 new android phones a week anymore
