LG Lucid 2 Review
The LG Lucid 2 provides good quality, much better than the “muffled” sound we experienced with the original Lucid. This time around, calls sound clear and full, with plenty of volume on our end. People that we called also said that we sounded clear and natural of their end. Though 1X signal strength was a bit low, showing 2 bars with a signal of -94 dBm.


One nice surprise is that the LG Lucid 2 comes with a standard battery of 2460mAh, which is larger than most other smartphones in this category. This was able to provide us to 12 hours of continuous talk time on a full charge, or about 3 days of mixed usage. While this is not as much as the 17 hours of talk time the Motorola DROID RAZR HD MAXX can get with its massive 3300mAh battery, it is still a noticeable improvement over the original LG Lucid that came with a measly 1700mAh battery and 8 hours of talk time.


Since the LG Lucid 2 is currently available for free with a 2-year Verizon contract, there is a lot to like about the device. It is small and lightweight, making it easy to carry around, the 4.3” qHD display is a nice size with clear text and images, the user interface is well laid-out and easy to use, not to mention the device has good call quality and a larger capacity battery. We do wish that the camera/video recording was a bit better, as well as the music player, but for this price, it’s hard to complain.

Software version on the reviewed unit:
Android: 4.1.2
Kernel: 3.4.0-gabdc9b6
