LG Escape For AT&T Review: The Best Budget Phone I've Ever Reviewed

When it comes to the newest generation of phones, "budget" is closer to "flagship" than ever before. Two months ago, I reviewed the free-on-contract Pantech Marauder and came away highly impressed. Ron, too, reviewed the $100 Motorola Razr M and said "This is what budget phones are like now? Where do I sign up?" The old budget formula of taking last-gen hardware and slapping it in a cheap chassis has given way to current-gen hardware in a better chassis - not to mention that the optimizations and polish of Android 4.0 make the experience better than ever on virtually any level of hardware.

Ice Cream Sandwich Now Rolling Out To The Atrix 2 On AT&T

Back in late September, Motorola updated its ICS rollout timeline, highlighting that several updates had been delayed, one of which was the Atrix 2. Then, much to the surprise of basically everyone, Moto released details and a soak test of the Atrix 2's Android 4.0 update just three days later. Silly Moto.

  • 2,150mAh battery 
  • Android 4.0

The L9 also features some LG proprietary software, like QuickMemo and "Cheese Shot" (which has to be one of the worst names of all time).

[Deal Alert] HTC One X On AT&T Now $0.01 For New Customers From Amazon Wireless

There are two types of people in this world: those who stick with the same carrier for decades at a time, and those who jump from one to another in order get the best phones.
