Review: LG Lucid for Verizon Wireless
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.

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 Dolby Mobile software had a more pronounced effect here, as video content with 5.1 channels had a more immersive sound to it.
