Verizon Wireless has just added a new mid-range Android device to its product line up, the LG Lucid 2 which is the successor of the LG Lucid 4G LTE which was first released about this same time last year.
Verizon is aiming the Lucid 2 at first time users at no cost with a new 2-year contract. The phone is compatible with the carrier’s 4G LTE network and features the Starter Mode that has a simplified user interface making it ideal for first time users.
The Lucid II simplified user interface features five easy to learn home screens with pre-set widgets such as My Apps, my Contacts and My Settings. There’s also a standard mode which is intended for experienced Android users, just in case you don’t like to be tutored about using a phone.
Specs-wise, the LG Lucid 2 comes equipped with a 1.2GHz dual-core Qualcomm SnapDragon processor with 1GB of RAM, it gets a 5-megapixel rear-facing camera with the ability to record Full HD 1080p videos and a 4.3-inch qHD IPS touchscreen which should be big enough for a first time user. The phone comes with Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean out its packaging and it also supports wireless charging but you will need the wireless charging battery cover that will set you back $39.99.
