battery life is next to nothing
I had great expectations. They were dashed when the battery went dead after only one day. Found out had to turn off bluetooth, wifi and mobile data for the battery to last more than a day. Even with those off I could only get 3 days of standby time! I have always carried my phone in my shirt pocket with no problems, with this phone it feels like it is about to fall out of the pocket every time I lean forward. I do like the features and functions of the phone, I just wish it had the battery power to use them. When I use the internet it is fast. It also makes and receives calls well. It charges fast. I am going to contact LG about a new battery and if it works better I will update this review.

Very disappointed. :O(
This is my 3rd Lg escape. one after the other, All three phones -battery life shows 20 -30% at 11 am after sitting in my pocket all am? NO apps, no games nothing abnormal on it either. I even downloaded nothing the 2nd phone just to see. Also kept bluetooth and internet off until I needed to use them. Never had this issue on other phones? If I talked on phone battery would drain way fast too. Thought it was a fluke but three pone later, I can't say that anymore. Had other LG cell phone and Loved them.

Good Speed and Value
This is the first Android smart phone I have owned. Admittedly, it was on the list of phones available to me at no charge when renewing my AT&T account. However, I did do some research and found it to be one of the better ones on that list. I have had this model now for a year, and have been pleased with its performance. The 4G speed is plenty fast for my data and communication usages - and I use the internet on this phone a lot for Twitter, blogging and other social media.. The 4.1.2 "Jelly Bean" menus are easy to use. I like using the NFC feature to exchange photos with my wife, who has the same model. Also, I have dropped it several times and it has physically held up just fine.
The only complaint I have is that it is impossible to load apps onto the SD card I purchased in order to save storage space in the internal memory. However, data storage to the card was easy to set up.
In summary, a good value with performance well within industry standards.
