battery and other information October 5, 2012
well, keep the phone plugged in whenever you are not using. It has a battery life of around 8 hours. The battery stays on longer if you do several things to prolong it as turn the powersave on, turn off the vibration, turn off the brightness to see the screen etc. Keep the black screen mode on to save energy as well. I think the price is great at $50 with my upgrade of a new phone through AT&T, however you can also get them on here for $50. The phone did not come with a battery charger in the box for the wall. You might check with your carrier. Thank goodness I had an older phone that had the same charger. The touch screen scratches easily and the touch screen is kind of tricky at times and you have to keep at touching it if you have Pandora radio going. I wore gloves and you cannot get touch screen working it seems. Keep the black screen mode on to save energy as well. I would recommend buying this phone with buying a face plate to protect it if you drop it. I am hearing from my friends that my phone is having a muffling sound on their end, however my grandson dropped it. It seems that the little ones want to use this phone as a game tool as you can download a lot of games. It keeps them occupied.....but it is an expensive toy. I love the alarm features and use this through my week to hit the "snooze" button every 5 minutes.
Great Value Entry Level Smart Phone March 21, 2013
Reviewer: Daniel (Chicago, Illinois USA) -
This phone runs (4.0.4) Ice Cream Sandwich, and despite what any sales person tells you, don't expect LG to ever update the software of this phone. That said, the LG Escape is a well constructed phone with fast, responsive, performance and great battery performance.
I got out of the AT&T store with this phone for approximately $80 (including contract fees and such), so for an entry level smart phone, this phone is a great buy.
LG is known for slow/no software update January 30, 2013
LG has been known for not supporting their software upgrade. You may get the latest android right now. But you are going to stuck with that android version for the rest of your smartphone life. Don't buy LG, you will regard it next year when everyone is using Android 5.0. I am a victom of the G2X, they promised to upgrade it when it was released 2 years ago. I now have a samsung s3 and the g2x still hasn't get that updated LG originally promised. In fact, LG don't even response to G2X update questions at all... LOL
the good and the bad March 26, 2013
Reviewer: christian crow "christian crow" (miami ok) -
ok where do i start -
the body - this is the most unpleasant holding experience and when i do grab it sometimes it will launch out of my hand.
the performance - this might as well be called a snapdragon s3 cpu because that is how slow it is and also, you will run out of space on this 4gb rom Quickly, and to spell that out you dont even get 2gb of rom
the camera - this camera is by far the worst 5mp camera i have ever had , my iphone 4 was 2 years old and it never slowed down nor did it take smudged and just unclear pictures ,
conclusion - as cheap as this phone is they cant even put a flash on it! and i am getting a actual phone with memory 16gb to be exact not 4gb
