Review: LG Lucid 3 for Verizon Wireless
The LG Lucid 3 is a solid little phone. It doesn't compete with flagship devices, and instead serves as a low-cost alternative that should appeal to bargain hunters who still want some unique powers in their device.
The hardware is plain, but well made. The battery life and network performance are quite good, though call quality isn't perfect and the screen is somewhat disappointing. LG's customizations to the user interface aren't overbearing and often help enhance the experience. The home screens and menus of Lucid 3 can be widely customized, giving owners plenty of latitude to make the device their own.
LG's custom apps, such as Knock Code, QSlide, and QuickMemo, are useful and add value. The Lucid 3's biggest weakness is the camera, but that's easy to ignore if you don't prioritize imaging or often carry a separate camera of your own.
