  1. Are the Phoenix 2 and Escape 3 the same phone with different names?

  2. None of these appear better than the ZTE ZMAX2 5.5" specifications-wise, aside from Marshmallow vs Lollipop.

    2. beware! the z max 2 will not let you disable google stuff that you do not use, and despite telling the play store not to auto update, the phone will auto update the programs you can't disable every time you turn the phone on. no other zte phone or lollipop phone i have does these annoying things. expect social network garbage to eat up your data.

  3. Removable battery??

  4. The manual online at LG shows it to have a removable battery ( big + for me).

    So now we know why the zmax2 is $50.00 in some walmart stores. \

  5. The specs look pretty goodbnut battery capacity is pretty small by todays standards. I'll wait and see for the reviews about battery life.

  6. How many times are they going to update the LG Tribute? This phone has like 20 different variants now.

    1. About all the Escape 3/Phoenix 2 have in common with the original Tribute is that they are both small, cheap Android phones made by LG. The two have different processors, memory, screen resolution, camera specs and button placement. LG will keep making small, cheap Android phones for as long as there's a market for them.

  7. Cricket needs to bring the Samsung J7, these SD210 devices are too under-powered for daily usage. This should be free with port-in.

  8. Just a tweaked version of the K7/Tribute 5 with Android 6. It has Band 12 but no Band 17. Good that they included 16GB storage to hold all the bloatware. Nice video, though:

    1. You don't need band 17. Band 17 is a subset of band 12. In other words band 12 includes band 17. AT&T now supports band 12 and all new AT&T network phones come with band 12 rather than band 17. See AT&T's Huge 180 on 700 MHz LTE Interoperability | DSLReports for more information.

  9. Yep, under powered, lots of bloatware on ATT Gophone models. Do the Cricket models have as much ?

    1. the alcotel 3 did not, however, you can use locked at&t phones on cricket and mvnos, but cricket phones are locked to cricket only. most att phones will auto change the apn for cricket, but some and most unlocked phones may require you to manually enter the correct apn.
