What People Are Saying

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Could Have Been A Contender Short version. Big screen, More than average storage (16 GB), ok cpu, abysmal battery life. This phone only has a 2150 mah battery. If you use it for anything other than phone duty it might last 4 hours. Anything that draws on the gpu, i.e., games, video etc. just destroys battery life. This phone could have dominated the entry level segment but the sorry battery life totally ruins the user experience. Hey LG how much more would it have cost to put a 2300 mAh battery in here? Would have got 5 stars!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Nice look of phone I've had so many problems with my escape lg. Kept turning off on me in the begining. Now it goes off line but Im connected to wifi. It plays one video over all others again and again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Hate It I bought this phone after being told it was Miracast capable. It's not. The battery doesn't last half the day. And it's slower than molasses in January. Get anything else ...not this overpriced paperweight.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from So far so good! I had TMobile with a Note 3, service was HORRIBLE! Decided to dump the old phone & the service! Bought this phone from Cricket & I have to say I'm pleased not only with the price, but also the phone! Pictures are only 5 MP but it has other camera features that seem to be cool! Battery seems to last about 8 hours but I dont use the Internet or Data on it to much which probably sucks it dry, but Extra batterys on EBAY are cheap and plenty available also. I like the phone & was a great deal altogether! Connected with multiple BlueTooth headsets easy enough. . . I dont really care of how fast it goes into Powersavig mode & this feature dont have barely an adjustment. Im a fan!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy Senior LG Escape 3 user Heard about this phone from a Youtube channel and got in on a special Cricket Wireless had. This phone has opened up new vistas of use for me and I am still learning. If you use a LOT of data keep a power source handy. I have always kept a juice charger nearby for any cell phone, I plug-in to the car when driving and hook up at home.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from One of the best Android Smartphones available now! I wasn't sure if I was going to like it at first, but it's a been a really great, durable phone with a lot of cool and outstanding qualities and features and functions that even my Samsung Galaxy 6 wasnt able to fully provide. Way to be innovative and stay ahead and be just a bit "smarter" than our so-called "smartphones"! LOL! ;) Nice work LG!! Keep being Awesome!! Thank you!!
