I'm Kent German, Senior Managing Editor here at CNET.
Today we'll take a first look at the LG Escape for AT&T.
Now I've long said at CNET that LG has an image problem and its image problem is, it does really have one.
It has him hit a lot of home run devices here in the US and it doesn't have a lot of duds either.
And this phone is a perfect example of that.
It's perfectly serviceable but it doesn't really offer anything we haven't seen before and it doesn't offer anything particularly special.
It does have a nice solid feel in the hand, do like the ribbed
material that runs all the way around the edge.
There is a 4.3-inch display, it is QHD, doesn't have the brightest resolution that we've seen so it's not gonna compare with Galaxy S3 or something like that but skipping on the screen specs does keep the price a little low, it is only $49 with the contract which is nice.
You got 5 home screens.
I like what the phone does work Ice Cream Sandwich, so not quite jelly bean but at least it gets Ice Cream Sandwich, so all the features you'd expect from there.
Of course you get personalize set of display with all the folders and widgets and everything you need.
you find a menu design just what you'd expect.
The feature set is pretty mid-range, does have a 1.2 gigahertz dual-core processor though, it does support AT&T LTE Network so I'm gonna put it to quite the test to see just how fast it is but I'm expecting it to be pretty good.
On the back, you'll see that there's a camera lens, there is no flash, down below the display are the 3 standard touch controls.
On the top, there's the 3.5 mm headset jack, on the bottom there's the micro USB port.
I do like the place when both of those having the micro USB port at the bottom means you can use the phone while it's being charged and then having on the top, means you can
carry it in your pocket and the headset just comes out.
Question is bluetooth, there's gonna be wi-fi, there's gonna be all the features you'd expect from an Android phone and the side there's a volume rocker.
I could find it when I was on the car which is nice and over here is the power control.
All and all a pretty standard Android device does have all the features I need, does have a dual-core processor, does have Android 4.0 and the LTE support, just doesn't go much beyond that.
But again the design is nice, it is solid, it's functional on the hand, if you need a service of Android phone for not a lot of money only $50 for the contract, you probably
can't go wrong with the LG Escape.
