After quite a long break, LG is re-joining the Windows Phone camp with its Lancet handset. This is also the first Windows Phone handset on Verizon in 2015. LG Lancet is rather a mid-range handset that carries a price tag appealing to the masses. For its price tag, Lancet is a good device for anybody who wants to try out the new offering or have it as a secondary phone. Provided Verizon’s track record, it will be interesting to see how long the carrier actually supports it.
In terms of design, LG Lancet looks like LG’s similar mid-range Android smartphones. It has a Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz processor inside coupled with 1GB of RAM. There’s an 8MP rear snapper with an LED flash and a usual VGA cam on the front. It sports a 4.5-inch screen which should be adequate for many. It supports Verizon’s XLTE and it’s the first Windows Phone handset on Verizon to pack Advanced Calling 1.0. You get 8GB of internal storage and there is a microSD slot as well. Lancet has a 2100 mAh battery that provides the all the juice.
For those interested, LG Lancet is already available online on Verizon Edge for $5/month for 24 months or you can buy it off contract for $120 upfront.
