AT&T Quietly Launches 4.7-Inch Curved Screen LG Escape2 For $180 Off-Contract

May has been a big month for LG smartphone launches. LG Mobile released its budget-friendly Windows-based Lancet late last week and then announced that it is rolling out the flagship, Android-based LG G4 in the coming days. As it turns out, the company also gave carriers the green light to sell the LG Escape2, which is an inexpensive Android smartphone with a curved design.

AT&T isn't making a big fuss about it, but the LG Escape 2 is now available for $180 off contract

AT&T is offering the Escape2 for a mere 99 cents with a two-year contract, but you can buy the phone off contract for $179.99. The phone runs Lollipop on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 1.2GHz processor. It has 1GB of RAM and only 8GB of internal storage, though you can bump that up via microSD slot.

The Escape2 also has a feature that you’ll probably snicker at but then end up using anyway: a selfie timer that makes use of a hand signal. You raise your hand and make a fist to trigger the three-second timer, thereby avoiding the camera shake that pressing the camera button entails. Laugh all you want – you know you’ll use it.
