LG Escape 2 and LG G Stylo
In order to compete in the mid and low-end market, LG released two wallet-friendly phones this year that users need to know about. 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 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.
