Another US carrier starts selling the LG Stylo 5 at a slightly lower price

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.
