Well, my HTC Thunderbolt had been an awesome phone but I had dropped it one too many times (for some reasons phones don't like that!) so it started freezing up and having issues. I was still recovering from a recent surgery so did my upgrade online and saw that the LG Lucid 2 was the free one w/Verizon this month so decided to give it a try since I've good results with LG phones in the past.
These are my personal observations:
-VERY quick at running apps and games
-very user friendly
-good sound quality
-normal size so fits the hand well
-I liked the graphics
-very light & thin
-the very first night I forgot to charge it fully and it died. The next morning when I plugged it up, it would NOT charge! I tried another charger cord and everything. Finally had to take the battery completely out and then it charged. NOT a good sign at the beginning of a 2-yr contract
-I LOVED the photo quality I had w/my HTC Thunderbolt and was expecting the Lucid2 to be at least close. I took several photos of my daughter's birthday party and did not like the pictures at all. Her cake looked like it had caught on fire! The photos were very grainy
-I am a heavy reader and use a tablet to read with but when it dies I use the Kindle and Nook apps on my phone. I used the Kindle app on the Lucid2 for a couple of days and several times when turning a page the screen would distort and freeze.
-The phone feels TOO light---like it will break if dropped once or twice.
Overall, I would say this is a good starter smartphone or a smartphone for someone who doesn't use all kinds of apps with their phone. If you are used to a smartphone though, you will probably not like it.
So back to Verizon store I went and this time i have a Droid DNA: so far I love it but it's only been a day! In a couple of weeks I'll let you know how it is doing.
