The Lucid 2 sports 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. You may be surprised to learn how tall the Lucid 2 can stand against the rest of the mid-range pack.

To echo my sentiments from the video review just above this, the LG Lucid 2 would have had to do a lot wrong to not earn itself a recommendation, given the fact that the phone costs nothing but a two-year contract. Yes, the camera isn't the best and...

Lisa Gade reviews the LG Lucid 2 on Verizon Wireless. The Lucid 2 is free with contract on Verizon, and it's a decent smartphone despite the low price. It has a 4.3″ qHD IPS display, a 1.2GHz Snapdragon dual core CPU with a gig of RAM and 8 gigs of...

Don't just pass this one by - Verizon's potentially got a sleeper hit on its hands with the LG Lucid 2With a fanfare-free launch, a budget-friendly price tag, and modest specs, you wouldn’t think that the Lucid 2 means a lot for Verizon’s portfolio;...

They're not coming out at the pace that they used to, but mid-range phones are still launching, and they're good for those that don't want (or need) all of the bells and whistles found in the high-end devices. For the folks that want to keep things...

Around this time last year, we reviewed at the original LG Lucid, which was designed to be an inexpensive basic smartphone. Now with the introduction of the new Lucid 2, we’re seeing a bump in specs, such as a larger qHD display, more advanced Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, and even a higher capacity battery...

We review the LG Lucid 2, an affordable alternative to the latest superphones that still packs some impressive specs and will do the job – if you don't mind a dated look.

Coming in at the lovely price of free, the Lucid 2 will certainly turn heads of those looking for a capable smartphone that’s not not overloaded on unneeded features and simple and to the point. But is that enough?

LG has done a rather fine job here in terms of what you get with the Lucid 2 for the price. The fact that they are offering a fairly decent mid-range phone (screen aside) completely free with a new 2-year contract is the selling point here. You get a...

The LG Lucid 2 does pretty much everything well. The worst thing I can say about the Lucid 2 is that the materials don't feel as good as the iPhone 5 or HTC One's. That's hardly a death-knell, especially for a device that's free on contract. The Android...
