One Day After Release, Signs Emerge Of First LG Lucid Update

After getting our first look at the smartphone earlier this month, Verizon announced the budget-priced LG Lucid earlier this week, and sales of the handset officially kicked-off yesterday. Right out of the gate, Verizon has published support docs on its website indicating that an update is already about to start heading out for the Lucid.

This certainly isn’t the first time we’ve seen a system update released for as smartphone that nearly coincided with its release, but it’s not the way we expect to see most phones to arrive. When there is this kind of haste, we end up asking ourselves just what the big rush was for; were there some critical bugs that managed to sneak their way into the phone’s release software?

The changelog for the Lucid reveals the only thing the update is supposed to do: disable the phone’s Enhanced Caller Name ID app. That sounds very much like an attempt to squash a bug, and one so problematic that simply removing the app was deemed a better solution than preparing a specific fix for it. Obviously, that’s just speculation for now, but it’s exceedingly odd to see such a laser-focused update as these support docs make the Lucid’s out to be.
