16 October 2012
  • Conclusion: For Verizon customers in search of a great deal, the LG Lucid smartphone is a tempting choice. A budget Android smartphone that feels and acts like a high-end device, the Lucid sports a comfortable design, vibrant 4-inch screen, speedy dual-core processor and a good 5-megapixel camera. Running on Verizon's 4G LTE network, the Lucid is a speedy smartphone that's "closer to what was called high-end just six months ago," says Jamie Lendino of PCMag.com.
  • Pros: Bright, colorful display, Comfortable, compact design, Fast processor, Quick 4G LTE speeds, Good camera
  • Cons: Poor call quality, Video quality issues, Outdated Android software

Review of the LG Lucid (Verizon)

techlicious.com
21 April 2012
  • Conclusion: Verizon and LG are positioning the Lucid as an entry-level phone for smartphone novices. And it serves that purpose well. But even veterans will find plenty to like: LTE speeds, very good photos and excellent ergonomics. It's not a perfect phone—call quality could be better and a higher resolution display wouldn't hurt. But for a phone that you can pick up on AmazonWireless for only a penny, it's a great buy.

Review: LG Lucid

gadgetsteria.com
12 April 2012
  • Conclusion: At $79.99 it’s hard to knock some of the flaws of the Lucid too hard. It is after all a mid-range device and not your typical $300 flagship device. Still, the odd standby battery drain and stodgy reluctance to stick with Android 2.3.x Gingerbread are two “features” that are a hard pill to swallow regardless of how cheap it is.

Can a mid-range LTE phone keep up with Verizon's best?

theverge.com
6 April 2012
  • Summary: The LG Lucid is among Verizon’s cheapest LTE phones, and for a lot of users that’s a really important advantage. If you buy this phone, by and large you should be happy with it — I don’t like its UI skin or its display, but its performance is solid, it’s a relatively good-looking device, and its LTE performance is good if not bar-setting.
  • Pros: Cheap for an LTE phone, Solid performance, Unique design
  • Cons: Terrible UI skin, Unattractive, low-res display, Inferior LTE speeds to other phones

LG Lucid (Verizon Wireless) Review

LAPTOP Magazine
5 April 2012
  • Summary: The LG Lucid packs a lot of good stuff into its small frame. For an affordable $79, consumers get a device with a bright and vivid display, solid 4G LTE speeds and features that make Android more approachable and fun for smartphone newbies. However, the HTC Rezound offers Beats-enhanced audio and a sharper 720p display for $49, making it the best deal right now on Verizon. Nevertheless, those who prefer something less bulky will find plenty to like in the LG Lucid.

Expert Review

Phone Arena
4 April 2012
  • Conclusion: A year ago, owning a Verizon 4G LTE smartphone meant having to fork over a load of moolah, such as the case with devices like the Samsung Droid Charge and LG Revolution when they were initially launched. Over time, as we’ve seen mostly in the last few months, there has been a transformation where devices became more affordable – and that’s the case we see here with the LG Lucid .
  • Pros: Affordable price, Attractive design, Still a high-spec’d smartphone
  • Cons: Lots of artifacting with its 1080p videos, Poor calling quality

LG Lucid

MobileTechReview.com
1 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Verizon Wireless' top Android LTE smartphones sell for $199 to $299, so you figure there's a catch when a phone costs on $79 on contract. In the case of the capable and very attractive LG Lucid, you actually get a very nice smartphone with serious style. The Lucid has a 4" IPS display that's very colorful, sharp and bright. It has a 1.2GHz dual core Snapdragon CPU that's plenty fast and 4G LTE. So what's the catch?
  • Pros: Affordable, portable LTE smartphone.
  • Cons: 800 x 480 resolution isn't cutting edge, but for the price, we won't complain.

Lucid by LG Review

SlashGear
30 March 2012
  • Conclusion: LG has done a decent job here releasing a top-of-mid-range device for the masses, not quite overtaking what they've already got released on Verizon with the LG Spectrum , but certainly a fine phone for those with hands that aren't goliath in size. This device is available at Verizon starting this week and you can pick one up online in Verizon's online shop for $79.99 after online discount and 2-year contract. Grab it!
