The Lancet features better battery power

LG Lancet also features a 2100 mAh battery that lasts a full day on a single charge. It also has an 8MP camera and VGA camera.┬áThe front camera is of low quality, but the rear camera’s quality makes up for it.

The LG Lancet is set to launch in-store on May 21st, but it’s now available online for purchase. The phone is a first from Verizon to offer Advanced Calling 1.0, a new feature that allows high-definition conversations. Customers will have to pay $5.00 a month through Verizon Edge in order to make those conversations. Non-Verizon customers can also join by bringing their phone number to the carrier to receive a $100 credit good for Verizon Edge service.

The LG Lancet is a budget-friendly phone

The new Windows phone is a bargain for $120 or $19.99 with a contract. The key appeal with the Lancet is that it offers the full Windows experience with more power. It’s also great for those on a serious budget.

In other Verizon-related news, the larger phone carrier company acquired another large company AOL. The former purchased the latter for a cool $4.4 billion. Verizon hopes to use AOL with the focus on LTE, internet videos, and possibly Internet of Things. Verizon and Sprint also made agreements to pay a total of $158 million as an effort to cool down charges they received for allegedly charging customers for unauthorized text message services. Customers complained they were billed for text message spam services that they did not sign up or pay.
