LG Escape (AT&T)
News from PC Magazine:

By Alex Colon

At this moment, AT&T is not lacking for quality smartphones under $ 100. You can get anything from the LG Nitro HD  to the HTC One X  to the Apple iPhone 4S  for less than a Benjamin. But all of those phones started out with a much higher price, unlike AT&T’s latest budget smartphone, the LG Escape, which is available for just $ 49.99 with a two-year contract.  Thankfully, this affordable price tag doesn’t come at the cost of performance or features. The LG Escape has a powerful processor, blazing fast LTE data speeds, a bright, attractive display, and a thin design. Along with our Editors’ Choice, the Pantech Flex,…………… continues on PC Magazine

News from PhoneDog:

Well, that didn’t take long. Less than a week after the LG Venice made its way online in leaked press images, the device has been made officially official by Boost Mobile. The LG Venice will be available from Boost starting October 10, with “select national retail locations” expected to begin offering it in late October, with pricing set at $ 219.99. Specs for the Venice include a 4.3-inch display, 1GHz processor, 5-megapixel rear camera and a and VGA front-facing shooter. Expect the Venice to run Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich at launch, complete with LG’s Optimus 3.0 overlay and its QuickMemo app.

With its 4.3-inch touchscreen, the LG Venice is one of the larger-screened Android phones that Boost Mobile offers, coming in at the same size as the ZTE Warp Sequent and just a tad smaller than the Samsung Galaxy S II 4G. Because of that, customers in the hunt for a handset with big display may want to keep an eye out for the Venice when it begins hitting store shelves next m…………… continues on PhoneDog

LG Escape 4G lets you out the door for $50

LG Escape 4G lets you out the door for $ 50
News from NBCNews.com:

6 hrs.

There’s a growing number of 4G phones out there, but many will cost you more than $ 100. Monday, AT&T Monday introduced a budget contender that’s $ 50 (with a two-year contract); it’s LG’s Escape, with a 4.3-inch display.

The phone will be out Sept. 16, and some might find it comparable in the economy league to Samsung’s Galaxy Stellar, introduced recently by Verizon Wireless.

The LG Escape is designed to work best on AT&T’s speediest fourth-generation, or 4G, LTE network and the carrier’s upgraded 3G network known as HSPA+. The phone comes with 4GB of memory (you can add up to 32 GB with a microSD card), a 1.2 GHz dual-core processor, a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera, and a ”qHD” IPS display that will give users “enhanced image clarity with true-to-life color rendering,” AT&T says.

The phone has another feature of interest: it’s enabled with a Near-Field Communication chip, which lets users pay for some items by transmitting small amounts of data, such as credit card numbers, over very short distances. 

The Escape uses Android 4.0, aka Ice Cream Sandwich, and not…………… continues on NBCNews.com

LG Intuition Hands-On: LG Goes After the Galaxy Note
News from TechnoBuffalo:

People want bigger smartphones. 4.7-inches is cool, but let’s go bigger. Enter Galaxy Note/Note II. And now, for Verizon, comes the LG Intuition, which is obviously aimed at taking some of the attention off of Samsung’s immensely popular beast-phone.

Here’s the thing: Bigger devices obviously afford much more space to get work done. Email, Web browsing, texting, etc., all that is easier thanks to the amount of screen real estate. The Intuition is no different, though it’s a bit off an oddball thanks to its 5-inch screen with widened 4:3 aspect ratio. It takes some getting used to, and our initial impressions were that it was a bit cumbersome and awkward; one-handed use is pretty difficult because of how wide it is.

There’s a positive, of course, in the form of a roomy on-screen keyboard, which makes typing a breeze. There are trade-offs with this device, and we’re anxious to get a further hands-on with the Intuition to see if it truly can compete with the Note.

We really like the Intuition, at least its screen size, but I think it is far underpowered compared to the Galaxy Note II, which should launch soon with a quad core processor,  a larger 5.5 inch display and Samsung’s signature S Pen. The Intuition is a good holdover, and we will hold our full judgement for the full review, but our first impression is that this is too little…………… continues on TechnoBuffalo
