Arriving today at Verizon Wireless is the recently leaked LG Lucid 3. A variant of the LG L90 we took a look at during our time at Mobile World Congress 2014, the smartphone offers a fair amount of hardware, free of charge (with a 2-year contract and after $50 mail-in rebate). In an effort to get their wireless customers off their dumbphone, Verizon says they’ll even kick in an extra $50 in trade-in value for those who turn in their basic phone with Edge (but only for a limited time).
LG Lucid 3 specs
- 4.7-inch qHD display
- 1.2GHz Snapdragon 400 quad-core processor
- 5MP camera
- 1GB RAM
- 8GB internal storage (micro SD card expansion slot)
- 2,440mAh battery
- Android 4.4.2 KitKat
As most new LG phones these days, the LG Lucid 3 features the manufacturer’s new “KockCode” feature, allowing you to secure your device with an invisible passcode, executed simply by tapping on the display. Similar to knock-to-wake, the code can be entered even while the device is sleeping for added convenience.
The phone may not “wow” you in the specs department, but then again, it’s not supposed to. With a healthy range of specs at an affordable price, the LG Lucid 3 makes a great smartphone for Android users on a budget.
