LG G Stylo launched by Sprint, costs less than $300 off contract
Sprint today started selling a brand new Android smartphone from LG, namely the G Stylo. Known as the G4 Stylus in other parts of the world, the LG G Stylo is a pretty large mid-range handset that won't break the bank.

As its name suggests, the LG G Stylo comes with a stylus pen "for easy note taking and drawing." The smartphone runs Android Lollipop, and sports a 5.7-inch display with 720 x 1280 pixels, thus being a bit taller and wider than the LG G4 flagship.

Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 410 processor, the G Stylo also features LTE, an 8 MP rear camera, 5 MP front-facing camera, 1 GB of RAM, 8 GB of expandable internal memory, and a 3000 mAh battery.

Sprint is selling the G Stylo for $288 off contract, or for $49.99 with a 2-year contract agreement. You can also get the handset with monthly payments of $12 for 24 months on Sprint Easy Pay. The LG G Stylo is also available to buy from T-Mobile, MetroPCS, and Boost Mobile. Who's planning to get one?

I don't understand why sprint is doing $300 off of contract? Boost mobile & MetroPCS have it for $199 on their website.

Asus Zenfone 2 blows this out of the water for around the same price. In what world does a stylus constitute a more desired product when the rest of the specs are budget to midrange.

what a mess sprint is in with this phone, tmobile gets the one with 2 gb of ram and 16 gb of internal storage. Sprint is selling the watered down version with 1 gb of ram and 8 gb internal storage. Best buy is selling this phone for less than $200 for boost mobile, why would sprint sell this off contract for close to $300? I am a boost mobile customer and was very dissapointed that sprint and boost did that, this would have been a good phone if they left it alone,

Yup. Sprint/Boost has a lower-quality rear cam and half the RAM and ROM. Kinda pathetic.

i think they were trying to spend less on the phone to get more profit, which is going to hurt all those people that think they are getting a good phone

the sprint / boost version has lower specs than the metro / tmobile version. i had the lg volt which has the exact same specs as the sprint / boost version and it is laggy, i had to root it, overclock it, and partition the sd card for more ram to get it to work good. i can say without a doubt this phone will lag and force close the keyboard and other apps

I just got the Tmobile version last week. This phone is the best I have ever had. I can see the screen in bright sunlight. I can hear my callers loud and clear. The battery lasts about 30% longer than my previous LG3 (and I don't really notice the lower resolution). It has a built n stylus. Camera is not as good in low light. Only negative.

I have it and Im prettys sure Lollipop has a memory leak. It runs fine for a while and then its almost like its not closing unused apps Ive been using. It begins to lag a lot until it eventually freezes at times. This happens until I reset it or temporarily fix it by force closing apps. Other than that, its a great phone. My battery lasted 7.5hrs+ on screen time with wifi @45% brightness. The 720 screen really saves a lot of battery on a 3kmah I have the Sprint / Boost version.

I have the T-Mobile version. It's snappy and the 2gb of ram make's for a smooth operation.

You probably dont notice it, but Im pretty sure its there. Ive had a Moto G before with the Snapdragon 400 and 1gb of ram on Kit Kat. It was super snappy. My LG tablet updated to Lollipop and it has the same issue as my phone. Its not as bad as the phone and it has an inferior processor.
