LG Lucid 4G VS840
Please do NOT buy this phone. I have had it for over 2 years now and throughout all that time I have been increasingly disappointed with it. The only positive thing that I can think of is that it's built like a tank and won't go down easily. Other than that, I've got nothing else good to say.
-Battery life is rather poor (for an LG).
-Operating the keyboard is a pain and it crashes frequently.
-Internet explorer on this device is the very definition of HELL; it lags, runs slower than a turtle, and when you delete all the tabs, it closes to the home screen. This is intentional, not a crash, and is extremely annoying.
-Face detection once detected a melon as my face, and loves to tell me that my face is not perfectly positioned, thus it cannot begin to detect me.
-Horrible apps that I can't completely remove from my device... if I wanted to play a demo version of Let's Golf 3, then I would freaking download it.
-The camera is an abomination, I can draw better pictures than it can take. Zooming in at all will result in a blurry mess.
-General application lag: opening and closing anything leads to up to a 5 second wait until the phone returns to the home screen.
-Confusing menus: Hey, I've had this sucker for 2 years and I still don't know how to navigate the settings page. I'm a 17 year old tech savvy kid who's had plenty of experience with the droid platform, but this phone's settings are confusing as heck.
-Storage: You NEED a micro SD to do anything with this phone. There's about 4GB of system memory and 4GB of internal memory, both of which fill up quite quickly. However, what annoys me the most is when I moved my pictures off the phone to gain some space, the phone still recognized them as on the device and refused to remove the 2GB of pictures from the storage. I tried everything, but there's still a phantom 2GB of media files showing up in my storage.
-Updates: This phone loves to update things when I don't want it to. It updates apps I've disabled, apps I've told it not to, and so on. No setting can change this.
I can probably list a hundred more things but this has gone on for long enough. If you're gonna remember one thing from this, remember: DO NOT BUY THIS PHONE!!!!!!!!

After accidentally launching mine out of my hand several times, I finally bought a case and problem resolved.. Very thin slippery phone.. I WOULD BUY IT OVER AND OVER!!!!

So even with the micro sim - it will not work on a US GSM network?

This phone is decent. On verizon's network you can upgrade it to ice cream sandwich. It does lag when navigating around but plays all apps in the market. Battery life is ok but you will have to charge it twice a day if you use it often. This phone obsolete in two years so I would not get this phone now with a two year contract. 2 gigs of ram in a phone is what one should be looking for.
