LG Escape 2 and LG G Stylo
LG also has some cheap phones they're trying to get into the hands of budget shoppers. Most are junk, but these two are decent enough to make the cut if you ask us. There's the LG Escape 2 with AT&T, and the huge 5.7-inch LG G Stylo on T-Mobile, Boost, and other pre-paid options.
The LG Escape 2 is essentially a mini LG G4. It features a 4.7-inch 720p HD curved display, a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, a micro-SD slot, 8 megapixel camera, and runs Android 5.0 Lollipop all for only $179. It isn't as good as the ZenPhone 2 on paper, but LG is making good phones these days. The Escape 2 is $179 outright, or $0.99 on contract with AT&T.
The LG G Stylo is an odd device for those that want something bigger, but still on a budget. Basically it's a cheap wanna-be Galaxy Note 4. It comes with a 5.7-inch 1280 x 720p HD display, the same 1.2 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor with 1GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage, an 8 megapixel rear and 5mp front camera, and a 3,000 mAh battery. It also features a built-in stylus. You'll want a micro-SD card for these phones, as 8GB simply isn't enough.
