LG Escape ReviewLG Escape 7.5
We can’t be too picky now, especially when this is an entry-level model we’re talking about, right? For what it’s worth and all, we have to admit that we’re accepting of the results produced by the handset’s 5-megapixel camera. However, the one complaint we have is the noticeable cooler color production it’s showing – where there’s a fair amount of blue/green hues throughout its shots. In general, it works for taking snapshots outside, but indoors or in low lighting situations, it produces way too much noise and soft details to accept. Oh yeah, it lacks a flash by the way!
Sadly, its 1080p video recording quality is too poor in quality to accept as being high definition. Sure, it records smoothly at 30 frames per second and captures clear audio, but its soft details, under-exposed appearance, and artifacting severely diminishes its quality. Needless to say, it might be “good enough” for some people, but for memories you want to remember until the end of time, we’d recommend something better.
In addition to the always-lovable Google Play Music app, the LG Escape is also carrying along LG’s very own music player, which is rather conventional by approach with its presentation and functionality. Setting the volume to its loudest setting, the speaker emits tones that resonate with a lot of vibrancy – albeit, there’s a hint of sharpness with it. Using the Google Play Music app, there are equalizer settings to better adapt to the specific genre of music that’s being played.
Already showing off its processing power, the LG Escape is able to easily play our test video that’s encoded in DivX 1920 x 1080 resolution. However, as much as we dig its smooth playback, the poor quality of its display becomes rather distracting at times – since colors lack the vibrancy to retain our attention.
