The unlocked LG Stylo 5 is already on sale at up to a $100 discount
Released on its first minor US carrier more than two months ago, the LG Stylo 5 barely went up for pre-order in an unlocked variant last week. Exclusively available from B&H Photo Video for a few days, the pen-wielding mid-ranger can now be purchased at Best Buy as well. 

The latter retailer will ship the handset immediately, and if you don't mind activating it upfront on one of three major networks, you're looking at some pretty decent savings. Priced at $299.99 without an activation, the Stylo 5 will drop to $249.99 for Verizon and AT&T subscribers or as little as $199.99 if you plan to use the thing on Sprint.

Alternatively, you can get a $50 discount on an unlocked LG Stylo 5 through B&H with absolutely no strings attached, but unfortunately, that specific retailer still doesn't mention an estimated delivery date, merely promising to fill your orders on a "first-come-first-served basis."

Arguably overpriced at a full three Benjamins, the 6.2-incher naturally sounds like a much smarter buy at 250, not to mention 200 bucks, being one of the very few affordable options in the market with a built-in stylus. Of course, we're not talking about a full-on S Pen rival, but the digital writing tool accompanying the Stylo 5 does hide a number of neat tricks up its sleeve, allowing you to doodle, sketch, color, and jot down notes on the go even while the screen is off.

The screen, by the way, sports a respectable resolution of 2160 x 1080 pixels, as well as relatively thin bezels, while Android 9.0 Pie runs the software show. A modest Snapdragon 450 processor comes paired with 3 gigs of RAM and 32 of internal storage space, with a single 13MP camera mounted on the phone's back and a single 5MP selfie shooter also in tow. The LG Stylo 5 packs a generous 3,500mAh battery and a DTS:X 3D Surround Sound system wraps up a rather mixed spec sheet with quite a few highs and a couple of lows.

Just buy the Stylo 4 unlocked for $60 and stay on Android Oreo, there's not much difference between Oreo and Pie. The Stylo 5 will probably get one maintenance update then abandoned like the 4 did. I really do like the DTS:X sound feature of these LG phones, I wish more phones did that.

If it is anything like the 4, it will junk. My 4 is so slow amd lags so Mich I'll probably be in bed tonight before this finishes catching up to me as I type!

That 1gb of ram can make a difference. At least less apps reload.

Stylo 4+ better specs than the 5 and cheaper price. Why would they put out a phone thats not as good as its predecessor?
