Review: LG Stylo 4 for Cricket Wireless
Hardware Software Wrap-Up Comments 1
The Stylo 4 is a definite improvement over LG's previous Stylo phones. It takes a big step forward thanks to the overhauled metal design and adoption of USB-C. The big screen offers an expansive canvas on which to use the stylus. It's an appealing piece of hardware.
LG selected a decent display for the Stylo 2 that's sharp and bright. The phone did as well as any Cricket-branded phone when it came time to surf the web and make calls. Battery life was very good, though shy of excellent. Call quality was good.
LG's refinements to Android 8.1 Oreo are a bit over-the-top, but do encompass some good features. I like the flexibility of the different home screen options. The camera app is solid and puts the aspect ratio of the Stylo 4's screen to interesting use with its square-image tricks. I wish it took slightly better pictures.

The stylus is a neat extra, but by no means vital. The few apps that take advantage of the stylus offer little more than writing notes, scribbling, and marking up pictures. If you're a fan of the stylus, however, the Stylo 4 is one of the only options in the market in this price range.
The Stylo 4 costs $229 as sold by Cricket (other carrier variants may cost more). I think this is a fair price and you're getting a good value for your money.
