Bottom Line

The LG G Stylo 2 can not compete with any of the better-known phablets in the market, and it is not meant to. It instead offers decent performance and long battery life for everyday usage at a very affordable price


The LG G Stylo 2 is a 5.7-inch budget smartphone that was released for Boost Mobile users in April 2016. The affordable phablet has continued to enjoy positive reviews for its slim and lightweight build, a current Android version and decent performance. Furthermore, the battery lasts long and is removable for easy replacement. However, users were critical of the cluttered custom UI, low-resolution screen and poor camera performance. The 16GB internal storage is enough in most cases, but because of bloatware, you are left with less than 10GB to work with. Thankfully, a microSD card slot is onboard for expansion. The LG G Stylo is a solid choice for anyone looking for a large and decent phone in the under $100 price range.

    It’s been a curious year for LG’s smartphone department. The likes of the LG G5 and LG X Screen hint at a manufacturer that’s obsessed with finding an angle – anything different to make its offerings stand out from the crowd.
