They're not coming out at the pace that they used to, but mid-range phones are still launching, and they're good for those that don't want (or need) all of the bells and whistles found in the high-end devices.  For the folks that want to keep things simple, Verizon's LG Lucid 2 could be just the smartphone.  It offers a nice level of personalization while keeping the cost down.

Specifications include:

  • 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 CPU
  • 4.3-inch qHD display (540x960 pixels)
  • 1 GB of RAM
  • 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD recording
  • 2,460 mAh battery
  • Android 4.1 Jelly Bean with LG's UI
  • 4G LTE connectivity

Lucid 2 is free with a two-year contract, making it a great choice for those that don't want to shell out the cash for the HTC One, Samsung Galaxy S 4, or Galaxy Note II - or for those that don't need a high-end smartphone.  With advanced features like wireless charging (with added accessories), is LG back in the US smartphone game?  Part 1 of 2.
