If you’re in the market for a big-screen handset, complete with a not-yet-obsolete and convenient stylus, then the information in the following review may help you realize that the LG G Stylo may just be the Android smartphone that you’ve been waiting for.
With a 5.7 inch HD display, the LG G Stylo makes reading easy. Users can enjoy sharp, clear resolution and vivid color displays. The LG G Stylo also features an 8 MP camera; as well as a 5 MP front-facing camera, ready to capture the all-important selfies. The built in 1.2 GH processor makes the LG G Stylo good for streaming.
If you are new to the Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, you’ll notice just a subtle redesign from its predecessor. A few updates have been made to streamline navigation and has yielded positive user reviews.
Aesthetically, the LG G Stylo has a sleek design, sexy and curved, making it comfortable to hold naturally in either hand. Once you are used to LG’s signature rear controls (no volume buttons on the side!), you’ll realize the rear buttons make it easy and convenient to adjust volume and snap pictures.
And of course, the built in stylus: You can find this stored in the top right-hand corner of the device. While not always completely necessary, a stylus makes it convenient to write notes, sign documents, utilize artistic apps, play games, and perhaps most importantly, avoid smudges to the screen of the phone. Worth mentioning is the usefulness of a stylus if you have gloves on and you can't use your fingers to swipe, and with LG's signature QuickMemo+ app, you can type, write, review text, doodle, draw, cut and copy.
When unboxing the LG G Stylo you’ll notice the pre-inserted battery, quite possibly the most valuable distinctive feature of the phone. The LG Stylo is known across multiple reviews to have an impressive battery life. The phone comes with a USB charging cable and wall outlet. It also comes complete with user-friendly “how to” information.
