Review: LG Lucid for Verizon Wireless

Music

The Lucid has the old-fashioned Android media player as well as the newer Google Music apps on board. The stock player is best used with music that's sideloaded onto the Lucid, while the Google Music app is best left for streaming music from a Google Music account over the network. Extras, such as Pandora or Slacker, are not preloaded.

Music playback sounded good through my favorite earbuds. The only option for enhancing sound during playback is to turn Dolby Mobile on or off. That's it. The Dolby Mobile software applies an un-adjustable EQ to the sound to "improve" it.

Video

The Lucid includes a few avenues for video playback. Aside from the stock Android YouTube and video player apps, the newest version of the Android Market (ugh, I mean Google Play) offers video rentals/downloads. The Lucid also ships with Netflix if you prefer that service for renting movies on your phone. Video playback looked good on the Lucid's display. The Dolby Mobile software had a more pronounced effect here, as video content with 5.1 channels had a more immersive sound to it.
