Just a little bit over a couple of months ago, LG finally matched its competitors over on Verizon’s lineup by bringing to market the Spectrum – a device that brought some exciting features at $200 on-contract. For those on a tight budget and prefer something more form fitting in the hand, the LG Lucid seems to be all the things you find yourself dreaming about during those sleepy nights. At $79.99 with a 2-year contract, it’s more than half the price of its fully equipped sibling in the Spectrum, but fortunately for it, the Lucid retains much of the same hardware specs while flaunting a smaller shell. Literally a bundle of joy, let’s hope that it stays like that.
Departing from the usual design characteristics akin to the Optimus line, we’re especially relived to find the LG Lucid sporting a different design. At first, it bears some kind of conventional design, but after taking a peek at its sides, we’re instantly fond the entire package. Yes, it’s constructed out of glossy plastic, which tends to easily smudge, but we like the cool sparkly red pattern it’s flaunting in the rear. In addition, we like its solid construction, accompanying weight, angular cutouts, and comfortable feel in the hand – and it’s pretty compact for a device packing a 4-inch display!
