It borrows its good looks from the LG G4, but drops the specs a bit to keep the price attractive.

Though the LG G Stylo's stylus is more of an afterthought, it's still a highly affordable big-screen handset.

A G4 Only in Name
As we stated earlier, the headline feature of the LG G4 Stylus - its stylus - is of limited use at best, which means the smartphone must vie for consumers' attention like any other offering at this price. While the phone packs in plenty of software tricks and has great battery life, the LG G4 Stylus is let down by limited RAM, a low resolution display, and a camera that's average at best.
The phone launched in India at a price of Rs. 24,990 and is now available at Rs. 21,000. At this price, the phone faces tough competition from the likes of the Moto X Play and the ZenFone series... Full review
Its affordable cost is enough to attract those who are tight on a budget and looking for a big phone
After living with the LG G Stylo for some time, it merely reveals that the stylus here adds nothing new or refreshing to the overall experience. It’s just your simple, ordinary stylus – and nothing more. To that degree, it reaffirms Samsung’s position of being the innovator in the stylus arena because its S Pen technology is unmatched.

An inexpensive Android handset with an over-sized screen and stylus
At $200, the LG G Stylo is a solid deal from Boost Mobile. The phone has elegant - if recycled - looks, and performs well for the most part.

LG's user interface makes some improvements to the base Android OS. I like how flexible the app and settings menus are, but I was disappointed that LG didn't add its Health and QSli... Full review
Stylus-wielding phablet with an affordable price
The LG G Stylo is a unique device in that it treads the line between added functionality and too much added price. It doesn't have as many useful tools and tricks as the Samsung Galaxy Note 4 has in conjunction with its S-Pen, but it also doesn't have the Note 4's premium price tag. At the same time, the ZTE Grand X Max+ for Cricket Wireless is another extremely affordable phablet that currently costs only $170. And while it too has a long-lasting battery and a 13-megapixel camera, it doesn't have the benefit (however slight) of a built-in stylus.
In that sense, the G Stylo... Full review
