LG and Verizon Wireless Introduce Secure and Smart Lucid 3 Smartphone

LG Electronics announced the new Lucid 3 by LG smartphone will be available online and in Verizon Wireless stores starting for free after a $50 mail-in rebate debit card and new, two-year activation. For a limited time, Verizon Edge customers who trade in their basic phone to purchase a Lucid 3 can get an additional $50 bonus added to the phone's trade-in value. The Lucid 3 is one of the first smartphones in the United States to offer LG's Knock Code, a new and more private way for users to wake and unlock their LG smartphones by using a personalized pattern of knocks or taps anywhere within four quadrants of the display. The LG Knock Code feature isn't as susceptible to biometric signatures like fingerprint scanners, and with more than 80,000 possible pattern combinations Lucid 3 users can feel confident about restricting phone access. The Lucid 3 by LG comes with Android 4.4 KitKat and a variety of smart, new software features meant to enhance and enrich the user experience, including: EasyHome: Users can access their favorite features, such as camera, contacts, dial pad, voicemail, weather and more by simply pushing the button located below the screen. Smart LED: Receive and be alerted to important notifications with color-coded LED alerts. Knock Code: More than 80,000 possible combinations for increased security and convenience. The compact, sleek design of the Lucid 3 by LG is specially crafted for mobile comfort, making it easy to operate with one hand. With KnockON, users can wake Lucid 3 by LG using just a fingertip, tapping twice on the display to turn it on or off. The ultra slim bezel allows for more real estate on the vivid 4.7-inch qHD IPS display, accurately showing off true-to-life colors and hues bringing photos and videos to life. The expansive screen also provides users with enough space to manage emails and a task list at the same time. And for those who appreciate multitasking, LG's QSlide Function allows up to two windows -- with adjustable sizing and transparency -- to be overlaid on the primary screen so doing three things at once becomes a cinch.
