What the Critics Are Saying...


Cnet

The compact LG Lancet has a comfortable design, a competitively low price, and a capable 8-megapixel camera.

- Lynn La, Cnet
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.

- Eugene Kim, PC Magazine
Phone Scoop

The Lancet proves that sometimes small stands tall.
