LG Lucid2 available today at Verizon Wireless, offers ample 2,460mAh battery for free with a 2-year agreement

Verizon Wireless has just officially announced the availability of the LG Lucid2, the Verizon branded version of the LG Optimus F5 we showed you back at MWC 2013. While marketed towards first time smartphone buyers and carrying a $0 price tag (with a 2-year agreement of course), the Lucid 2 doesn’t skimp on the specs.

New buyers will find a device powered by a more than adequate Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, 5MP camera, 4.3-inch qHD display, and all kept alive by an ample 2,460mAh battery that even features wireless charging. Here are the rest of the deets:

Key Features Include:
• Large 4.3-inch qHD Advanced High Performance (AH) In-Plane-Switching (IPS) display
• Long-lasting 2,460 mAh Battery
• Android™ 4.1.2 Jelly Bean
• Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 Krait 1.2 GHz dual-core processor
• Memory: 1GB RAM and 8GB on-board storage
• microSD™ Memory Card Support: up to 64GB
• Wireless charging capabilities (Wireless Charging Battery Cover sold separately)
• Customizable lock screens
• Advanced Camera Capabilities including Live Shot, Time Catch Shot, Panorama Shot and Cheese Shutter
• Mobile Hotspot to share a 4G LTE connection with up to 10 Wi-Fi-enabled devices
• QuickMemo allows users to capture screenshots and add their own personalized commentary or drawings with a finger
• Bluetooth® Version 4.0

It’s hard to believe this is now “entry-level” but welcome to 2013, I guess. The phone will hit retail stores later this week but will be available online at Verizon Wireless starting today.

    Things I like : free, big battery, non-pentile qhd screen…. Not a bad phone for someone who would not read this website.

      Seriously. For free, you could do a LOT worse…

    Seems like the Lucid 2 is worth some consideration, a Jelley Bean smartphone with a moderate 4.3 screen instead of a monster 5.0++++ screen,. Definitely worth some consideration!

    Does anyone think this will receive the KLP update? Q4 of this year, or Q2 of next year?

    Is LG’s IPS tech better than Samsung’s Super AMOLED?

    1) is it a removable battery?
    2)does it have Video Out?

    I like the 64GB sdcard slot expansion. It would be nice if other companies would support this capacity. I don’t get it, the Droid DNA a high end device comes only with 16GB of internal storage with no sdcard slot and this low-mid range phone comes with 8GB of internal storage and a 64GB capacity sdcard slot. What was HTC thinking?…It seems that they added a flash to the Lucid 2, unless LG added a flash to this device after it showed it off at MWC 2013…

    I never thought I’d say this about a pure LG device, but I love the design.

    Love the design? What about it do you love? I don’t like the corners so square, prefer them round like on my Samsung Droid Charge.
