Aaron reviews the LG Lucid, a 4G LTE phone that's available now at Verizon for $79.99.  The Lucid packs a 1.2 GHz dual-core Snapdragon processor, 4-inch display, 5-megapixel camera with 1080p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, 1,700 mAh battery, and Android 2.3 with LG's custom UI.  It's a feature-packed device considering the sub-$100 price point, and it brings Verizon's 4G LTE connectivity to the masses at a reasonable price.  Is it worth considering?  Part 1 of 2.

David Jason Whetzel Apple is in a situation where it HAS to up their game with the iPhone 5 (or whatever it's going to be called). It's going to take a lot to knock Android completely out of the game. I personally don't see that happening any time soon. Look at WP7. It has a VERY small market share at the moment, but it's not completely out of the game. At least not yet.

David DiPilla Iphone is a solid device made right and ya they are falling behind but once they step up their game with the iphone 5 and improve the new os big time bye bye android
David Jason Whetzel
David Jason Whetzel Sure. Some are, but to say that every single Android phone is "low end crappy junk" is just ignorant.
David DiPilla
David DiPilla Every single one of them have problems

David DiPilla Android phones are low end crappy junk
Brandon Salyer
Brandon Salyer I'm not sure it ever was a 'great' phone. Just a simple phone with tons of dev's writing apps. (sent from my iPhone 4)
David Jason Whetzel
David Jason Whetzel Don't get me wrong. The iPhone is a "good" phone, but it's not a "great" phone. Not any more. There are so many better options out there now.
David Jason Whetzel
David Jason Whetzel Without a doubt, the iPhone.
