Thumbs down LG Lucid uses old S3 qualcomm CPU, confirmed.

Anyone interested in this phone be warned that it uses the OLD snapdragon S3 CPU and OLD power-hunger 4g LTE external chip

Does not matter that its 1.2ghz and dual core, this S3 CPU is HALF the speed of the 1.2ghz S4 and uses more power which is why this phone is so bulky and requires such a large battery for a 4" phone.

LG Lucid - Old Cortex 8 based CPU cores and old, power hunger 45nm design.

Snapdragon S4 phones will be here in a few weeks (incredible 4g)
Snapdragon s4 - Cortex 15 like cores and power efficient 28nm design.

They are obviously trying to dump the old stock of two-generation old CPUs which is why Verizion is releasing this phone 4 weeks before the Incredible 4g. They are well known for doing this in the past to dump old hardware.

I dont understand why anyone would get this phone and lock themselves in a two year contract for outdated hardware. Makes no sense.
