We found that the included 5MP camera on the LG Lucid 2 does slightly better than the original LG Lucid. Images that we took outside have a bit more detail to them, as well as natural looking colors, but still appear relatively soft, instead of sharp and crisp. This trend continues for indoor shots, as with lower light levels produce even softer looking images. The LED Flash does illuminate a room well, but it causes the image to have a yellowish hue.

For recording videos, the Lucid 2 is capable of Full HD 1920x1080p resolution at 30 frames-per-second. Colors were pleasing, and the exposure was accurate, but again the detail was not as sharp as we would like.

The music player is pleasing is easy to use, with tabs across the top for songs, albums, artists, genres, playlists, and folders. Though it does lack some eye candy that we’ve seen on LG’s higher-end Optimus line. When playing music through the rear speaker, there is plenty of volume, but we noticed that low and mid tones are missing, which causes music to should shrill and lacking in fullness. Using a pair of earbuds will solve this, but we still wish there were equalizer settings to bring lower tones out.

Even though the Lucid 2 has a 4.3” qHD display, videos played just fine, and were nice and smooth, supporting MP4, H.263/264, DivX and XviD with resolutions up to 1080p. DLNA is also supported, as well as SmartShare, to allow for easy streaming and viewing between multiple devices.
