Verizon to release LG Optimus F5 as LG Lucid 2?
Last month, we told you that the LG Optimus F5 had been introduced at MWC in Barcelona. A mid-ranger, the device features a 4.3 inch qHD display which works out to a 256ppi pixel density. Under the hood is a dual-core 1.2GHz processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of native storage. MicroSD slot? You betcha! The phone comes with a 32GB capacity microSD slot. The back and front-facing shooters weigh in at 5MP and .3MP respectively, and the 2150mAh battery could provide power all day with moderate use. Android 4.1.2 is installed out of the back, which means it will come with the smoothness of Project Butter and Google Now. The latter provides you with the information you need, when you need it such as sports scores, stock prices, weather and traffic.

The LG Optimus F5 is expected to soon be coming to the nation's largest carrier, Verizon. Big Red is said to be re-branding the phone as the LG Lucid 2, making it the sequel to the device which first launched last March. The model number is VS870 and is expected to be available from Verizon as soon as next month.

The first Lucid was ok when it debuted. We sold a ton of them because we made a lot of money on each one. Next thing ya know, a bad batch came out. Nothing but battery complaints flooded in, so I stopped selling that p.o.s. Now there's gonna be a second version? HA. I'm not gonna sell it.

Yeah Id rather sell the Stratosphere, and Samsung Illusion over the lucid. With how many returns we had for the lucid it was no longer worth selling.

haha ikr! The Strat 2 is doing pretty good, too! Same with the Stellar! I never dealt with returns (with the Lucid). The problems would come one month after they bought the phone--so I would have tech support exchange the phone for them. They still ended up with the same problems tho xD

Stellar sells like a beast! Good phone for free. Shame the camera is pretty bad though. 3.2MP and no flash. Guess that is what you get for free right? lol

Haven't had any returns with the Lucid, just to much Verizon bloatware loaded on the device...

What's with Verizon and the crappy low-end phones? Not that I am interested in the OIptimus G pro, but are they going to release that on Verizon?

Verizon, I'm very underwhelmed. first no HTC One, now this? if it weren't for your superior network and Samsung, I'd be gone already. you guys need to represent a bit better than THIS.
