Hands on with LG Escape

| Thursday, October 18, 2012 | |

While the Pantech Flex – AT&T’s admirable offering has enticed us enough, it’s now LG’s turn to show off – the LG Escape. LG Escape with an affordable price tag features a powerful processor, a bright and attractive display, blazing fast LTE data speeds, and a thin design.  It’s utterly impossible to escape from the vibrancy of LG Escape’s display. When it comes to the design of LG Escape, the device traverses the usual beaten path, rather than stepping outside the box. With its all-plastic (shiny black plastic) casing, the Escape weighs just 4.5 ounces and feels a bit hollow. However, the look of the Escape reminds us of a larger version of the LG Lucid. The LG Escape measures 4.96 by 2.54 by 0.37 inches and looks like a quality device, except for the false note (the textured matte plastic band looks a bit tacky). Apart from this, the Escape is an attractive device that is light and comfortable to hold.

Design and Display:

There’s half an inch of bezel on either side of the LCD display that makes the device more beautiful. Like the most Android devices, the Escape sports three well spaced-capacitive buttons below its display while the earpiece, a front facing 1.3-megapixelcamera and a proximity sensor are above the screen.  In the rear of the Escape, there’s a 5-megapixel camera capable of recording video in 1080p. The device packs a sizable 4.3 inch 540 x 960 IPS LCD screen that is pretty decent when considering the price. But, if you dig deeper, the washed out appearance, weak brightness output and poor viewing angles may be disappointing to you. In other words, although the Escape lacks the wow factor, the device still stands out of the crowd for its functionality.

Interface and Internet Connectivity:

Talking about the functionality, the Escape that runs on LTE networks, features 802.11b/g/n Wi-Fi. It’s never a surprise that the Escape’s core organizer apps aren’t deviating from the LG’s functionality. With a strong reception, the device has pulled in some incredibly fast data speeds like upstream speeds over 12 Mbps and downstream speeds over 18 Mbps. It’s not just this, the Escape features LG’s latest Optimus User-Interface running on Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. While navigating the home screen, the cool 3D transition effects splash a bit of interface’s character making it more attractive. The Escape offers you the usual Android device’s functionality. The other noteworthy feature – LG’s Quick Memo is on board with the Escape that lets you take screen shots of what is being done. You can also doodle on these screenshots and share it with your friends and family. When it comes to emailing features, you can never complain about the Escape’s rich set of features, as the device gives a wonderful web browsing experience.

Processor and Performance:

The dual-core 1.2 GHz processor of the Escape is no slouch. While it's true that the device's processor isn't as scorching as the Samsung Galaxy S III's dual-core 1.5GHz S4 processor, the Escape's processor is fast enough to run all the games and apps. Like the most Android phones, the Escape has no word on any update to Android 4.1 Jelly Bean, which is slightly disappointing. The impressive dual-core processor with 1GB of RAM ensures a consistent performance as it ample enough to handle almost all the operations effortlessly. When it comes to battery, the Escape features a beefy 2,150 mAh battery that delivers a better battery life close to 6 hours and 27 minutes.

Verdict:

While the expectations regarding entry-level smartphones have increased with the impressive Pantech Flex recently, The LG Escape competes well with its performance making it difficult to choose. The Escape offers you tons of value at the most economical prices, making it the perfect choice for you and me.
