As a basic smartphone for a very lightweight user, or a toy for a gadget-happy adult with which to tinker, the LG Lucky is solid. It’s a fine music player, light browser, and even navigation device. You won’t be doing HD video or taking the family Christmas picture with it, but it has a wide range of other uses. Even just as an emergency backup smartphone, it’s good to have around.

LG Lucky LG16C, the $10 Android smartphone.

The Lucky really offers a something special: a “real” smartphone without the high costs associated with it. To put it another way, it offers 90% of the smartphone experience at only 10% of the price.  


  • Extremely low price
  • Flexible voice, text, and data options
  • Basic feature set more than enough


  • Very limited capacity, not much room for apps
  • Tied to one provider
  • Limited to 3G data

    Overall, very nice review of the Lucky. I am an Android developer and love following these cheap devices because, well, they are just SO cheap. A dual core anything in your pocket or $10 would have been the stuff of science fiction just ten years ago. Anyways, yours is one of the few reviews on either the Sunrise or Lucky that seems to me like you know what you are talking about. Keep it up!
