Best Buy has the LG Stylo 4 on sale for as little as $100 after $200 discount
If you like pen-wielding smartphones but can't afford a member of Samsung's super-high-end Galaxy Note family and you're also not a fan of the only two prepaid carriers on which the brand-new LG Stylo 5 is available so far, you could still consider last year's mid-range Stylo 4.

Normally priced at $299.99 unlocked, the 6.2-inch handset is currently on sale at Best Buy for as little as $99.99. That's even cheaper than way back in March, representing a massive discount of 200 bucks or around 66 percent off the phone's MSRP, although predictably enough, there are a couple of strings attached to this killer deal you need to carefully take into consideration before pulling the trigger.


For one thing, the substantially reduced $99.99 price point is valid only with upfront Sprint activation. You'll also have to open a new account with that specific wireless service provider or add a new line to an existing account to score the full $200 discount. On the bright side, upgrading customers get a decent $150 markdown of their own, while those looking to activate the LG Stylo 4 on Verizon or AT&T need to cough up $199.99 straight off the bat.

It's hard to say whether or not the Stylo 4 is a good deal at $200 (especially assuming its sequel will eventually be expanded to more carriers), but if you can get it in exchange for a measly $99.99, you shouldn't think twice about it. 

The built-in stylus, extra-large screen with relatively thin bezels and a respectable resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, the 3,300mAh battery, and rear-mounted fingerprint scanner make that an absolute bargain, even if the LG Stylo 4 is not exactly a powerhouse in terms of its processing muscle or camera capabilities.
