Back in April, LG announced the LG G Stylo. Which is a 5.7-inch mid-range smartphone with a stylus. Sorta kinda not really competing with Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. Earlier today, we reported that the device was heading to T-Mobile, and now we have confirmation that it’s heading to Boost Mobile and Sprint as well. Boost Mobile has it available today, with Sprint Prepaid selling it next month – June 7th. Boost Mobile and Sprint will be selling the device for $199.99, that’s off-contract. However, you can still buy the phone on contract starting June 12th. Sprint will be selling it for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $12.
The LG G Stylo may not be LG’s most popular smartphone – especially with the LG G4 being announced just a few weeks ago. However, it does have some decent specs. Including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 quad-core processor which is clocked at 1.2GHz. That’s paired with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage. There’s also a 8MP camera on the back with a 5MP front-facing shooter. The display is a 5.7-inch 1280×720 resolution IPS display, coming in at about 258 pixels per inch. LG also has a 3,000mAh battery inside the G Stylo, which should last quite a while. As we saw last year with the LG G Vista. To cap it all off, we have Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box, and LG’s newest version of their Optimus UX.
While it’s not the most amazing device coming out of LG lately, for $199, it’s not a bad price for the LG G Stylo. It seems to be geared at those that want a large display and a stylus, but don’t want to pay $700+ for a device. Last year, LG announced the LG G3 Stylus, and the specs were pretty similar. So it looks like the LG G3 Stylus did well enough for LG to try their hand at it again. It’s nice to see it available on multiple carriers as well. Currently, it’s heading to T-Mobile, MetroPCS, Boost Mobile and Sprint Prepaid. I wouldn’t be surprised to see it heading to Virgin Mobile in the near future.
