AT&T has begun selling the mid-range LG Escape 2 both online and in their retail locations this weekend. The 4.7″ curved display Android phone is available from .99 Cents on a two year contract up to a reasonably priced $179.99 without any contract commitments. Given the specs of the LG Escape 2, the $180 price is about what you should expect. It’s not too shabby and certainly fits the need for those looking for a great phone under $200.
The LG Escape 2 came onto the market rather suddenly as it was not previously announced by LG. AT&T has quickly picked it up (exclusively it looks like at this point) so have have another option when looking for your next Android phone. Here is a quick rundown of the specs:
- Display: 4.7″ IPS with 1280 x 720 resolution
- Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad core running at 1.2GHz
- RAM: 1GB
- Storage: 8GB Internal, expandable up to an additional 32GB with MicroSD slot
- Camera: 8MP Rear capable of shooing 1080p video/ 1MP Front Facing Camera
- OS: Android 5.0 (Lollipop)
The LG Escape 2 isn’t going to set the world alight from a specifications perspective but it certainly isn’t anything to dismiss outright. If you are in the market for a budget friendly phone with a great camera, sizable display and good performance, this one should be on your short list.
