Summary: With LG, budget is definitely not a dirty word. For $49.99, smartphone shoppers get a slim device with strong performance on AT&T's LTE network. In addition, the Escape offers a suite of fun features, such as QuickMemo. Those looking for a better display and stronger Kevlar design will want to shell out the extra $50 for the Motorola Atrix HD . Overall, though, the LG Escape is a great choice for bargain hunters who don't want to skimp on performance.
Conclusion: After being impressed by the Pantech Flex recently, our expectations regarding entry-level smartphones has been heightened. Well, we have to admit that LG also has a formidable model that shouldn’t be taken for granted, as it competes nearly on the same level with its performance. Out of everything, it’s still rather difficult to choose this over Pantech’s offering, mainly because its design is so blah compared to the Pantech Flex.
Pros: Affordable $50 price point, Fast overall performance, Above normal battery life
Cons: Washed out display, Boring design, Captures terrible 1080p videos
