Great phone at a reasonable price

Unike the other reviews, I find the Stylus 2 Plus to be well made and packed with features and sold at a reasonable price. The included stylus is great for note taking. I got mine from T-mobile 5 months ago and have had no issues so far. The only "con" I see is the average quality Camera and average battery life. But the camera's output is pretty decent and battery life is useable. You could get a better phone but it will cost much more. Overall I'd say the Stylus 2 Plus offers a lot of bang for buck.

THIS IS THE WORST SMART PHONE IVE EVER HAD!

Except the Huawei. So its pretty bad! The camera SUCKS! 13mp my ass! It takes FOREVER to load pics, apps and even my contacts, half the time the texts don't send and I find out later, it CONSTANTLY freezes so I have to take the battery out to reset every day sometimes several times a day! Its worse than the $50 Samsung I just had! I just got it last month so I have a year and 11 months to pay on it in contract!

This is the worst phone ever , T-Mobile assured me that this was a good phone. Not so would not recommend this phone to anyone. Some of the reviews i have read, said the same thing this phone screen goes black often i'm not able to make any calls when this happen,phone freezes up often also i'm having continually remove my battery . I'm having to keep shutting my phone off/on. I'm very disappointed in this phone because i do not have extra money to purchase another one. I was told that Lg does has an extended warranty ,And that i had to return it back to them . T-mobile said they had nothing to do with the phone after i have had it for 14 days. It's a shame because i didn't give Lg my down payment and deposit. T-mobile got it . Less
