LG Lucid 2 Review

Posted by Lizzy Armentrout on June 5, 2013 at 3:00 PM

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:

PROS:

-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

CONS:

-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.
