The LG Lucid 2 is a mid-range smartphone that really impressed me with how zippy and smooth is ran. That’s right folks we reviewed the LG Lucid 2. Not only did we review the Lucid 2 but we were also sent a few accessories to review for the device as well and you can read what we thought of those in the last paragraph of this review.
When I first started to use the LG Lucid 2 the first thing I noticed was how smooth and fast it was for being a mid-range smartphone and not a flagship smartphone, it really impressed me. Here is a spec rundown of the device:
- Running Android 4.1.2
- 4.3 inch display (540×960)
- 2460 mAh battery
- Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Plus (dual core)
- 1024 MB Ram
- 5MP rear facing camera
- 1.3MP front facing camera
Not too shabby for a mid-range smartphone. Speaking of not being too shabby, the camera on the phone was a decent camera, sure it’s not taking jaw dropping photos but they still looked good even when blown up on a computer screen. I did a hangout with some people on the device using the front facing camera and it looked just as good as any other device would using the front facing camera which again impressed me.
As for the operating software it’s running Android 4.1.2 which is one of the newer versions of Android and that is really nice to see on a mid-range smartphone. On top of that of course it contains LG’s UI which is getting better and better quickly but as it sits right now it has it’s issues but nothing that will deter you from enjoying using the phone itself.
Overall this phone is an excellent mid-range smartphone that kept me impressed and I recommend it to anyone low on cash or somebody new to the smartphone world getting their first smartphone.
We were lucky enough to not only receive the LG Lucid 2 but we also received three accessories as well, a media charging dock, wireless charger, and navigation car mount. Let me just start off by saying that all three devices worked great and did exactly what they were supposed to do. The media charging dock is great for a music junkie, it lets you listen to your music, see the album cover and also have your device charging all at the same time. The wireless charger worked great as well, the only problem I had with it is that it was very touchy, you had to place the Lucid 2 in a very specific position on the charger for it to charge but I guess that’s just wireless charging. Now comes the device I used the most by far, the navigation car mount. I use Google Maps and Navigation a lot on my smartphone so it was so convenient for me to place the mount on my car windshield and constantly see where I was on the map.
