Reviews Word on the street for the LG Lucid 3

To our own astonishment, the LG Lucid 3’s 2440 mAh battery is able to deliver a long-lasting tally of 8 hours, 20 minutes with our battery benchmark test.

What People Are Saying Give it to me straight


Having an ample sized display, it’s fairly easy to type with its on-screen keyboard – though, there’s some adjustment needed initially to get comfortable with it.

Display Not markedly better than its predecessor in the specs the department, it’s the low quality element of the panel that disappoints us.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Under lower lighting situations, the quality of course deteriorates, as they’re mainly noisy looking and grainy with the fine details.

In the back of the phone, two small notches for its speaker grill lines the bottom area – while a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash occupies the top portion.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
The app launches in a cinch, but the problem we face here, much like on other LG devices, is the slow auto-focus time of the 5-megapixel camera.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Shutterbugs will be pleased by the images its 5-megapixel camera snaps in outdoor sunny conditions, but they generally appear a tiny bit over exposed.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)


Nothing extraordinary, fine text might be a little garbled due to its below average pixel density count of 234 ppi, but for the most part, it’s still usable to view things in the web browser.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Indeed, it records video smoothly and audio recording is pretty clear, but its distracting elements include its jitteriness, lack of continuous auto-focus, and softer details.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)


Processor and Memory Able to handle simple tasks, it’s in the intensive stuff where it falls flat.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
Nothing worth writing home about, the LG Lucid 3’s quad-core 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 SoC coupled with 1GB of RAM and the Adreno 305 GPU executes basic tasks with no fluff at all.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)


Introduction Very rarely do low-end smartphones receive an established line of devices that get refreshed on a yearly basis, but interestingly enough, LG’s Lucid series over on Verizon is entering its third straight year.
by PhoneArena (May, 2014)
However, the LG Lucid 3 isn’t one of them, seeing that it’s strictly a CDMA device with support for the carrier’s 4G LTE network.
