My 12 year old son is a self taught artist and budding YouTuber. He’s constantly working on something with his hands, and has recently started cooking (his ratatouille is absolutely killer). He has sketch books on every floor of the house, and the floor of his room is where he does most of his good work.
As he watches videos, he draws what he sees, and then transforms drawings in to clay sculptures. He has shifted his focus from Tim Burton movie characters to Marvel characters more recently, but also dabbles in original works of art.
Recently, the battery on his mobile phone has started to fail. Blame it on dad for not putting him in to the most modern device I have. I can take that. So we’ve talked about getting in to a phone. During one conversation, I pulled out the LG Stylo 4 and showed him the stylus.
“Yeah I’ll take it...” he said.
“But wait, I’m not offering it… or maybe I am. Are you interested in this one? Would you like it?”
His eyes lit up as he answered, “ABSOLUTELY!! That’s EXACTLY what I need!”
As a 40-something year old father, I didn’t realize how critically he needed a phone like this… with a stylus… and a huge honkin’ screen… and a bigger battery. Parents just don’t understand, as the Fresh Prince used to say. But now I understand, and we have queued up a change so that he can start using the Stylo 4 this weekend.
IF you know a doodler, or someone who is always taking notes, or likes the feel of a note or scratchpad while they are on the phone or in meetings, this is the device for you. The Stylus has been more actively integrated in to the LG version of Android OS, so there are pop-ups and stylus specific apps that are enabled when the stylus is pulled out of its docking port. And the device is snappy enough to handle a light to medium load of apps for the semi-serious doodler.
Part 2 next week, after he gets it in his hands…
