Review: LG Stylo 3 for Boost Mobile

Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments  1  

LG's Stylo 3 is a decent mid-range handset. The phone is a bit boring to behold and yet it still manages to stand out thanks to the large footprint and stylus. You'll find average-quality materials and appointments on the Stylo 3. The big display has a mediocre resolution and isn't as bright as I'd like it to be. As long as you make calls through the regular earpiece and not the speakerphone you'll be happy with their quality. Data speeds left me unimpressed, but the battery life is to die for. I found the camera app to be responsive. It's a shame that the resulting pictures are so so-so.

Thankfully the software outshines the hardware to a degree. It's great to see Android 7 on board the Stylo 3, and LG's advanced user interface skin gives owners wide latitude to make the phone their own. You can choose from three basic home screen styles and adjust each, as well as apply themes, customize button placement, and more.

It's nice to have the stylus and dedicated software, and yet LG could have done so much more with it.

Boost Mobile is selling the Stylo 3 for $180, which is a fair price considering what the phone delivers. If you value screen size and battery life over premium design and camera results, the Stylo 3 fits the bill for not too many bills.
