Verizon fans looking for a decent mid-ranger without paying a cent might want to check out the LG Lucid 2. As previously rumored, the phone has now been confirmed for arrival to Verizon’s network on April 4th.
The specs certainly won’t blow anyone away, but they aren’t half-bad considering the phone is free. The handset has a 4.3-inch IPS display with a qHD resolution and is powered by a 1.2GHz Snapdragon S4 processor with 1GB of RAM. Other specs include 8GB storage, microSD, Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, a 5MP rear cam and optional wireless charging capabilities.
For those that think this phone looks pretty familiar, that’s because it basically a rebranded Optimus F5. The biggest difference here though is the battery. The phone will pack a 2,460 mAh battery, which is pretty damn good when you consider the modes specs on the handset. In contrast, the F5 came standard with a 2,150 mAh battery.

Bottom-line, at $0 with a two-year contract and a reasonably large battery, this phone could be perfect for those that are looking for an entry or mid-range device without having to give up any cash up-front.
The LG Lucid 2 probably isn’t going to impress your friends, but if you uses are modest, it should still provide a reasonably enjoyable Android experience.
