LG Lucid 3 is a mid level device released many years ago, having a medium 4.7" capacitive touch-screen, a 1200 megahertz Quad-Core CPU, and 2 cameras, a 5 megapixels back camera and a 0.3 megapixels front facing camera.

LG did an amazing design job making this phone weight only 4.37 oz. Being just 0.39 inches thick,this cellphone is incredibly slim and stilized. Although the LG Lucid 3 is just 5.18 inches long, it manages to pack a 4.7 inches display.

LG decided to equip this phone using a Qualcomm Snapdragon 400 8926 system chip, holding a great performance 1.2 gigahertz Quad-Core processing unit and 1 GB of RAM memory. Graphic calculations usually eats lots of processing power, so it uses an additional Adreno 305 graphics processing unit ticking at 450 megahertz to improve overall performance. The LG Lucid 3 counts with an 8 GB quite large internal storage memory and an SD extension slot, which allows the user to store a couple hundred games and apps without worrying about space.

LG equipped the LG Lucid 3 with a nice 4.7 inches screen, and a resolution of 960 x 540 , giving this cellphone a very good graphic quality. Its screen uses IPS LCD capacitive technology, and can detect multiple fingers at the same time.

This phone features wifi connection (and it can provide it to other devices around, acting as a mobile hotspot), LTE 4G high performance connection type or 3G connection type, over EV-DO A technologies. The LG Lucid 3 doesn't use a SIM card, because it doesn't support GSM networks and it works with CDMA networks.

This phone is equipped with two cameras, a 5 MP back side camera and a 0.3 mega-pixels front facing camera. It also captures 1920x1080 Full HD videos at 30 fps. To complete the camera, it also includes a high number of cool features: auto-focus, flash, fast burst mode, face detection shooting, HDR mode, smile detection shooting and geo tagging.

This device also comes with some interesting features like Bluetooth (for communication with other devices and accessories), GPS and NFC, and multiple sensors like Light Sensor, Proximity Sensor, Accelerometer and Compass.

The LG Lucid 3 has a huge 2440 mAh Li-Ion removable battery that provides this phone an incredibly long battery duration. According to LG, this cellphone has a reported talk time of 12.5 hours and a stand by time of 360 hs.

This cellphone is a great choice considering it just costs $ 105, while other similar cellphones are way more expensive. If you want it mainly for internet broswing and social networks, need a phone for work or will use this phone for gaming, this phone is the correct option for you.
