LG Escape Review

0. phoneArena posted on 09 Oct 2012, 09:03

By now, we’re very aware about the competitive atmosphere surrounding high-end smartphones, but interestingly enough, we’re seeing a similar battle over in the entry-level market as well. Already, we’ve been blown away by AT&T’s admirable offering with the Pantech Flex, as it showed us that basic doesn’t mean weak, but rather, it’s able to combine killer pricing with meaningful hardware. Well people, now it’s LG’s turn to show off its offering for the carrier’s entry-level lineup – the LG Escape! Naturally, its $50 on-contract price is lovable right from the onset, but it’s going to require much more than that to impress us nowadays.

"Chatterboxes will surely enjoy conversations with this smartphone, mainly because it delivers one immaculate call quality. Through the earpiece, it produces extremely loud and audible voices that are distinct in tone and distortion-free." finally, a phone that has the best important basic feature in a phone! :D /s
The display angle looks scary!

Nokias have had that feature, so while I disagree with "finally", it is good to have even introductory-level smartphones have that feature as well

Sarcasm bro!!!
But yes, it's good to see an Android phone that going this way. I don't mind the looks but visibility under directly sunlight is a biggie for me...and this here, seems like a drag.

I think it deserves a better score, mainly for the dual core S4 + $50. Then again, the lack of LED flash is a deal breaker.
