You're concerned about battery life and decided to go with the device with the larger and HD screen, that packs a smaller battery? In fact, Verizon rates the Lucid to have 18% greater talk time. You should always take what a SALES rep tells you with a grain of salt. My Lucid will arrive in a week. So I'll see for myself about battery life, but I expect it to outlast the HTC.
Both devices have Qualcomm radios. I could be wrong, but they should have similar reception.
