Apps

The Lucid comes with the usual batch of apps on board, including Verizon-branded tools and services such as the data counter app and account control app. Some of the apps can be deleted, but not all of them.

Bluetooth

The Lucid paired with every device I threw at it, including: my car, laptop, tablet, PC, and headset. Phone calls sounded good through mono headsets, but not awesome. Music sounded OK through stereo Bluetooth speakers, but not so good that I'd want to spend more than a few minutes listening to it.

Clock

The Lucid offers the standard Android clock on the lock screen, which is visible when the device is first woken from sleep. It’s a nice, large digital read-out that's easily visible everywhere except under direct sunlight. It can't be customized, though.

GPS

The Lucid includes Google Maps and VZNavigator. You know the drill here. They are both solid apps. Google's is free, Verizon's costs $10 per month. Both apps worked well with the Lucid's GPS radio and had no problem keeping up with my car while navigating me from point to point. The accuracy of the GPS radio was within 25 feet, and most of the time the phone pinpointed me within 10 seconds.
