Review: LG Lancet for Verizon Wireless
At $120, the LG Lancet under-promises and over-delivers. You might be fooled into thinking a low-cost handset would be sluggish and unable to perform. That's not the case with LG's little phone.
The Lancet's hardware is more solid than other phones in this price point and the small size makes it easier to use than bulky phablets. I do wish the screen were a bit sharper. The phone ran well on Verizon's LTE network, but I would have prefered better performance from the speakers. The Lancet's battery was particularly impressive.
Windows Phone runs well on the Lancet. The media apps are good enough, but the camera is only average. The Lancet is a powerful productivity machine thanks to Microsoft Office, and it's nice to see a couple of handy LG features (QuickMemo and KnockON) added to the company's non-Android phones.
