The LG Escape has a 5 megapixel, rear-facing, auto-focus camera capable of recording and editing HD video. For still picture taking, there is a continuous shoot feature where users can take multiple pictures in a row to create a good panoramic photo. All of this will happen with little shutter lag.

The LG Escape also includes a newly created browser toolbar extension that gives users access to their favorite social media pages while surfing the Internet. This feature will provide easy access to Facebook, Twitter, sharing a URL, and more. Browsing will be easier and faster as it connects to AT&T’s 4G LTE network. As tested in the Nashville area, this upgraded speed is welcome and a significant improvement over 3G.
