Verizon Wireless recently released the LG Lucid 2 as a free on-contract device and while we were generally pleased with that handset in the time we spent with it, we are not entirely sure the same can be said about another entry-level device. The latest is the LG Optimus L3, which is said to be coming to Verizon as the LG Optimus Zone. Keep in mind though, we are talking about the Optimus L3, not the Optimus L3 II.
Verizon Wireless has had the LG Lucid available for some time now. Coming as a follow-up, the carrier has recently released the Lucid 2, which has landed in the mid-range lineup as a budget friendly device. The LG Lucid 2 brings 4G LTE connectivity along with a 4.3-inch display and relatively slim design. Perhaps nicer for some, the handset is available for free on a two-year agreement and has a wide variety of additional accessories. With that being said, we have recently spent some time with the handset and have a bit to say about the device -- so, read on to see if this is one you should consider or simply ignore.

Verizon Wireless would consider dropping the two-year agreements. This comment came by way of Verizon CEO Lowell McAdam. While this initially sounded like good news, it was really nothing more than the carrier saying this was something they would consider -- should it become something the customers began asking for.
