I have always been a fan of using a stylus on a phone. I understand that many manufacturers try to stay away from a stylus, but I still see value in having one. The LG G Stylo is a phone that was recently released on Sprint. I had the pleasure of using it for a few months prior to its launch, and now I have been using a post launch device. LG really makes solid devices and this is no exception. It is considered mid-ranged when you compare it to the G4, but it really has a lot going for it.
Stylus – The thing that sets this device apart from other mid-ranged devices is the stylus. Samsung’s Note devices have had a stylus for a long time, but you have to pay a premium price to use it. The LG G Stylo allows you to have the stylus without the cost. I use it most to write notes that I save to my phone and send to my friends and family. I find it much easier to write it out with a stylus than to type it and have to correct my errors along the way. I also use it after working out or when my hands are oily/sweaty. This helps keep the screen from getting dirty and allows me to use the phone, even if my hands are cold or wet.
Lollipop – This midrange phone is equipped with Androids latest version which is awesome. A lot of times manufactures will use an older version of Android on low to mid-range phones. The LG G Stylo has the same operating system as the G4 which makes it a great cost alternative to flagship devices.
Speed – The LG G Stylo has kept up with what I have used it for no matter the situation. It has a 1.2 GHz quad core processor which is more than enough to use the phone for business or pleasure. The only time I experienced lag was during the initial setup when there were a ton of apps downloading to the device.
If you are in the market for an awesome device with a great price then look no further. The added bonus of a stylus is a great accessory that you can use when needed, and you can forget about it if you don’t want to use it.
