LG Lancet: First Windows Smartphone on Verizon with Advanced Calling 1.0

Exclusive and Easy-to-Use Smartphone Available on Verizon Edge

By on May 14, 2015

Whether you’re new to smartphones or already have one, you always want it to be a smooth experience and feel like you’ve got some of the latest technology in your hand. The LG Lancet has high-end smartphone features in an affordable and simple-to-use device.

The new smartphone from LG uses Windows 8.1, which means you have the flexibility to set up the start screen the way you want it. You can “pin” the apps you want so you can keep all the important things right where you need them. Have some favorite friends or family? Pin them to your start screen and get status updates as they happen.

And with Windows 8.1 you also get Cortana, a personal digital assistant that can help you make your life easier by just using your voice. She can show you related articles based on your interests and get you where you need to be with GPS and traffic alerts. She can also help you find local events going on or pick a restaurant if you’re traveling to a new city.

The smartphone has an 8-megapixel rear camera with multiple modes including night mode for those times you’re in low-light settings but want to capture the moment. It also has a 2100mAh battery to keep it powered throughout the day.

The LG Lancet launches with Advanced Calling 1.0 capabilities, making it the first Windows smartphone on Verizon with HD Voice Calling and the 17th in Verizon's portfolio to support it. This means you can enjoy natural-sounding HD voice calls with other Advanced Calling-enabled Verizon smartphones.

The XLTE-ready LG Lancet is now available online and will be in stores starting May 21. The smartphone is available on Verizon Edge for $5 a month for 24 months; 0% APR (full retail price $120). And, for a limited time, bring your number to Verizon and get a $100 bill credit within 2-3 bill cycles for each new smartphone activated on Verizon Edge.
