Like the original, the LG Escape 2 comes with a decent set of specs for the price. Buyers get a 4.7-inch screen with a 1280 by 720 resolution. On the inside, there's a 1.2GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, Adreno 306 GPU, 1GB of RAM, and 8GB of storage (supplemented by a microSD card slot). An 8MP camera sits on the back.
Here's the kicker. The display and the entire device are slightly curved, just like the LG G4 and G Flex 2. The buttons are also on the back. Really, there's physically nothing in common with the original Escape. But if you're into LG's new look and don't want to shell over the money for any of its top devices, this revived namesake offers a chance to get in on that action.
While AT&T wants $180 for the phone without a contract, those who are willing to sign up for two years can get the phone for 99 cents. Alternatively, you can get the phone for $6 a month with Next.
