LG Stylus 2 review


The poor man's Galaxy Note

Android Marshmallow ; Expandable storage

Stylus a little pointless ; May have limited release ; Under powered

So-so specs and questionable stylus don't do enough to grasp the imagination, and unless you must have a pen for your phone and you're on a restricted budget there are better options out there.

LG Stylus 2


It's been a curious year for LG's smartphone department. The likes of the LG G5 and LG X Screen hint at a manufacturer that's obsessed with finding an angle – anything different to make its offerings stand out from the crowd.

pressure sensitive casing ; no App2SD, no USB OTG ; moderate DAB+ reception ; stylus without pressure levels ; unstable GPS reception ; only acceptable call quality ; low resolution panel ; low brightness and color accuracy ; comparatively low performance

LG's Stylus 2 stands out from other mid-range devices with some innovative features. First to mention is the stylus that is actually only known from considerably higher priced devices. It allows making handwritten notes on the screen or cut objects out...

LG takes a second shot at courting the pen fans


Chalk up a win for LG when it comes to weird product names. If you've never heard of the LG Stylus 1 don't panic: The LG Stylus 2 is actually the "enhanced sequel" to the LG G Stylo, which was also known as the LG G4 Stylus outside of the US and Korea,...
