Review of the LG G Stylo for Boost Mobile

Form Performance Basics Extras Wrap-Up Comments  2  

At $200, the LG G Stylo is a solid deal from Boost Mobile. The phone has elegant - if recycled - looks, and performs well for the most part.

The screen is a major selling point, and the stylus makes the large size easier to handle. LG's goofy rear buttons are growing on me and they work well. The phone has great battery life and reasonable LTE data performance, but call quality is definitely lacking.

LG's user interface makes some improvements to the base Android OS. I like how flexible the app and settings menus are, but I was disappointed that LG didn't add its Health and QSlide apps to the phone. The camera doesn't offer too many shooting options, but it works well enough and takes solid pictures.

The Stylo sits in the middle of Boost's lineup. The only other big-screened phone like it is the ZTE Max, which has the same price tag. Most other Android handsets in Boost's roster cost less than $150 or more than $600. I like the Stylo because it has a good screen and excellent battery life. These are compelling reasons to choose the Stylo. If you want the biggest phone for the money, the G Stylo is the one to get.
