Another US carrier starts selling the LG Stylo 5 at a slightly lower price
LG Stylo 5 made its debut in the United States over the weekend when AT&T's wholly owned subsidiary Cricket Wireless announced it has added the budget-friendly smartphone to its portfolio. Today, another US carrier confirmed it has started to sell the LG Stylo 5 – Boost Mobile.

Unlike Cricket which offers the LG Stylo 5 for $230 (prepaid plan of at least $30 per month required), Boost Mobile is now selling the phone for $200 (plus tax).

The LG Stylo 5 stands out from other Android smartphones due to its built-in stylus pen that offers some productivity functions like Pop Lens, Screen-ff Memo, and Draw Chat. Other interesting specs include a massive 6.2-inch full HD+ FullVision display, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, a 1.8GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, 32GB storage, 3GB RAM and a generous 3,500 mAh battery.

Oh, and in case you're wondering, we did not copy/paste the specs of the last year model, it's just that apart from the slightly larger battery and a new version of Android, there are no differences between the LG Stylo 5 and LG Stylo 4 specs-wise.

In addition to the LG Stylo 5, Boost Mobile announced that new customers looking for a family plan can get four lines of unlimited data, talk, and text for only $25 per month. According to the carrier, each line in the family plan includes mobile hotspot (per line), mobile-optimized streaming videos, gaming and music, as well as 4G LTE data speeds.

The SD 450 is not slow. Not to mention it's very power efficient (14 nm), and it's GPU is more than up to the task of rendering on that full HD+ resolution display. However with that said, I was hoping that they would have upgraded the SoC from last year.
