As a basic smartphone for a very lightweight user, or a toy for a gadget-happy adult with which to tinker, the LG Lucky is solid. It’s a fine music player, light browser, and even navigation device. You won’t be doing HD video or taking the family Christmas picture with it, but it has a wide range of other uses. Even just as an emergency backup smartphone, it’s good to have around.
The Lucky really offers a something special: a “real” smartphone without the high costs associated with it. To put it another way, it offers 90% of the smartphone experience at only 10% of the price.
