CES 2017: Hands-On With The LG Stylo 3

While not their flagship smartphone, LG has unveiled a series of new smartphones at CES today, one of which is the Stylo 3 (which LG officially announced back on December 21st) and is carrying on from the Stylo 2 handset with improved specifications and hardware and new and improved (yet still familiar) design. While the Stylo 3 certainly has quite a few things going for it, it's claim to fame is the stylus that resides in a silo situated at the top of the device, and just might be an option for those who are looking for a smartphone that comes with a stylus in the absence of the Galaxy Note 7. As long as they don't mind the decrease in specifications, being that the Stylo 3 is a mid-range phone and the Galaxy Note 7 was geared at the high-end of the market.

Stylus aside, the LG Stylo 3 is a formidable smartphone for the price conscious who also don't want a phone that has to make too many compromises in the hardware department. It comes fully equipped with a 5.7-inch HD display and it's powered by a MediaTek MT6750 processor, so while not sporting one of the most recent chips from Qualcomm, it is powered by one of MediaTek's current best for the mid-range tier, and the size of the display is certainly more than enough for the consumer who prefers a larger screen, and it should be of such a size to make the most of the stylus that comes with it.

The Stylo 3 also comes powered by a 3,200mAh battery, and true to LG form the battery is removable so when and if you run out of battery during the day you can simply swap it out for a fully charged unit and toss the dead battery back on the charger. The phone also features 3GB of RAM and 16GB of internal storage space, but perhaps one of the best parts about the phone is that it comes running on Android 7.0 Nougat, which means it's mostly up to date on software lagging only behind a handful of devices which have been upgraded to Android 7.1 and Android 7.1.1 Nougat. This is all topped off with a 13-megapixel rear camera, 8-megapixel front camera, and a fingerprint sensor for a fairly well-rounded device.
