The LG G Stylo is an all-around great device. It won’t break the bank, and it comes with some awesome features that you don’t find at this price point. One of my favorite features (outside of the stylus of course!) is the camera.
The camera specs may not blow you away on paper, as the 8MP rear camera is something that plenty of other devices can match.
Features: Optical image stabilization, Face detection, Smile detection, Digital zoom, Voice activation, Self-timer, Autofocus (Laser), Touch to focus, Geo tagging
Settings: Exposure compensation
Shooting Modes: High Dynamic Range mode (HDR), Panorama
Camcorder: 1920x1080 (1080p HD) (30 fps)
Features: Video calling
Front-facing camera: 5 megapixels
LG sets the Stylo camera apart by including dual flash, OIS and voice activation, but a feature that LG is including on all of their best devices is something that I’ve never seen on another manufacturer’s device. The laser guided auto-focus. There isn’t another focusing apparatus out there that matches the laser. Besides that fact that you have a freaking laser on your phone, there is some practical use to it. I have to admit, I was a little disappointed that it’s not the type of laser that can cut through steel, but I suppose it’s probably safer that way. However, when I’m using the camera to take pictures, and then change my focus to another target, the response rate is incredible. Here is a great 17 second video that demonstrates how fast the laser auto focus is. That’s really all you need to be convinced.
The video is showing a LG G3, but the laser autofocus is the same. So if you like taking pictures with your phone (and who doesn’t?) and you don’t want to worry about not getting the focus right, or just want a laser in your pocket go pick up the LG G Stylo.
