LG Lucid 3 Now Available On Verizon: Free With Contract, $300 Without, KitKat Included

The original LG Lucid wasn't anything to write home about, but for some reason Verizon kept the name around for the much-improved mid-range sequel. Now the phone line is getting a third entry, as the Lucid 3 has appeared on Verizon's site after a candid leak last month. New Verizon customers can pick up the phone for free on-contract, and those who prefer to go without the ball and chain can pay a reasonable $299.99.

What does three hundred buckskins get you on Verizon these days? All things considered, it's not bad. The Lucid 3 is still decidedly mid-range, thanks to a 960x540 4.7-inch LCD screen, a 5MP rear camera, and 8GB of storage.

Android 4.4.3 (Build KTU84F) For The Nexus 5 Should Start Rolling Out Today, According To Sprint [Update]

Update: Build KTU84F will hit devices between today and April 21st. Sprint hasn't fixed the typo on its support page, but the forum post has the build right.

What a day for an OTA – specifically, Android 4.4.3 for the Nexus 5. Sprint has updated its support page to indicate KTU84F is dropping today, which we understand to be the rumored 4.4.3 release. There is a Sprint-specific tweak in this update, but the software should also be hitting N5s that aren't connected to the Sprint network at the same time.

Pocket-lint Goes Hands-On With A Prototype Of The Android Wear-Powered LG G Watch, Highlights Its Form Factor

Pocket-lint has gone hands-on with a prototype version of the upcoming Android Wear-powered LG G Watch, sharing some photos in the process. Judging from the press image released with the product announcement, we could already see that the accessory would be square and come without buttons. These vivid, up-close photos confirm this. Aside from that, we see a device that looks like a flatter, more subdued version of the Pebble. Unfortunately, none of the images show the screen on or reveal anything about what the final user experience will be like.

[Deal Alert] Google's Play Store Accessory Sale Returns For April Fool's Day, Still Genuinely Saves You 25% Off Select Cases

 

Google's 25% off cases sale has returned, and thankfully so. The products the company offers in the Play Store aren't cheap. Yet while there are more affordable options to be found elsewhere, there's nothing quite like a first-party case to provide a perfect fit and that proud Nexus branding. Now you can again snag up one for the Nexus 5 or Nexus 7 at 75% of the original price.

Sale

Even with the discount, these options still aren't exactly compellingly priced. The Nexus 5 bumper case, the most affordable option provided for the phone, still goes for $26.24. The Nexus 7 sleeve goes for $22.49.

Sprint LG G2 owners may not have too much longer to wait for Android 4.4.2 to arrive. Sprint has posted details on an upcoming OTA update, which should roll out in stages starting today.

[Deal Alert] LG G Flex Down To $99 On-Contract With A New Line On AT&T Or Sprint At Amazon

I think we can all agree that AT&T's $300 on-contract price for the LG G Flex is unacceptable. Sprint's $250 asking price is also too high, though not as obscene. If you're looking for a curved phone, you can get the G Flex for a mere $99.99 on-contract with either carrier through Amazon.

LG's Knock Code Security Feature Will Land On The G2 And G Flex Starting In April

Easily the coolest part of LG's custom Android skin is KnockOn, a feature introduced with the G2 that allows users to knock on a sleeping phone to wake it up. Knock Code, a pattern-based alternative with a bit more security, was introduced with the G Pro 2 and other phones at Mobile World Congress. According to a new press release, LG will make good on its promise to expand this feature to other phones, starting with the G2 and G Flex in April.

Knock Code uses a series of taps at specific points on the screen to both wake up and unlock the device, sort of like Android's default pattern unlock (with the screen off).
