The pen isn't mightier than the touchscreen

from NDTV

We still aren't fans of LG's buttons-on-the-rear philosophy but we do have to give the company credit for its software enhancements. Considering the potential for one-handed use, the stylus, the low-resolution screen and the size of this phone, we suspect it might really appeal to people with weak eyesight or mobility impairments, or even those who are just generally tech-phobic...

We still aren't fans of LG's buttons-on-the-rear philosophy but we do have to give the company credit for its software enhancements. Considering the potential for one-handed use, the stylus, the low-resolution screen and the size of this phone, we suspect it might really appeal to people with weak eyesight or mobility impairments, or even those who are just generally tech-phobic.

For everyone else, the LG G3 Stylus is a nice enough phone, but it's just way overpriced. The stylus really isn't much of a value addition and is not half as useful as we would have liked. There are far better options that cost around Rs. 20,000 today, such as the aforementioned Lenovo Vibe X2, and the Huawei Honor 6 (Review | Photos). The LG G3 Beat, which is a little less expensive, would seem to offer a better balance of features for most people. It's also worth noting that phones priced much lower, such as the Motorola Moto G (Gen 2) (Review | Photos), offer better features and performance.

If priced more reasonably, the stylus could help give this phone an edge over its competition. As it stands now, that one feature just isn't good enough to make up for everything else.

A cheaper, weaker G3 complete with stylus

from TechRadar

Is there space (and demand) in the market for a cheaper looking and feeling LG G3 with a questionable stylus? In short, not really.

To be fair it looks like the G3 Stylus will be targeted at specific markets such a Asia and Latin America, and it may never make an official appearance in the likes of the US, UK and Australia...

The screen is surprisingly good considering the resolution, performance is acceptable and there's a decent camera on the rear which may help the G3 Stylus keep its head above water.
