Affordable Windows Phone handset that doesn't offer enough

As a starter Windows device, the LG Lancet is a respectable option for cost-conscious Verizon customers.

As a starter Windows device, the LG Lancet is a respectable option for cost-conscious Verizon customers. Its $20 (on-contract)/$120 (off) price tag is especially affordable compared with the premium HTC One M8 for Windows Phone, which costs fives times as much because of its high-caliber hardware and luxurious design.

In some ways, it also seems more attractive than Verizon's other budget Windows handset, the Lumia 735, due to its lower price and finer image quality.

Ultimately, however, the 735 remains the smarter choice. Considering what improvements you get in hardware and specs, the price delta isn't too egregious (the 735 costs $30 with a carrier agreement and $192 without). The Lumia also has a sharper 720p display, serves up twice as much built-in storage with 16GB of internal storage and has a higher capacity battery that's capable of wireless charging. Plus, its wide-angle 5-megapixel front-facing camera may appease those who might be underwhelmed with the 735's camera hardware.

When it comes to value, the LG Lancet may be a good deal, but the Lumia 735 is an even better one.

The low price comes with compromises

from PC Magazine

For Windows Phone fans, there are few options on Verizon Wireless. In fact, there are only three available, hitting three separate price tiers. The Lancet is the budget-friendly option in the trio, offering reasonable performance for the price. It's a good value for less-demanding users.

Phone Scoop

A low-cost Windows Phone that's easy grasp and offers a lot of value

from Phone Scoop

At $120, the LG Lancet under-promises and over-delivers. You might be fooled into thinking a low-cost handset would be sluggish and unable to perform. That's not the case with LG's little phone. The Lancet's hardware is more solid than other phones in this price point and the small size makes it easier to use than bulky phablets. I do wish the screen were a bit sharper. The phone ran well on Verizon's LTE network, but I would have prefered better performance from the speakers. The Lancet's battery was particularly impressive.

Windows Phone runs well on the Lancet. The media apps are good enough, but the camera is only average. The Lancet is a powerful productivity machine thanks to Microsoft Office, and it's nice to see a couple of handy LG features (QuickMemo and KnockON) added to the company's non-Android phones. For those seeking the least-expensive Windows Phone available from Verizon, the LG Lancet is it. It's a good option if you're looking for a simple, compact phone that gets the job done....
