When Samsung released their smartphone models with a stylus pen, almost everybody wants the prestige of the little spear. But as smartphone users opted more for their more practical fingertips, stylus has been forgotten. LG, on the other hand, staged a come-back for the forgotten spear together with their newest G Stylo model.
What We Consider Great
The brand itself is truly lovable but we need to pin-point the specs we adore, of course. One, the mammoth display screen of 5.7 inches with equally great pixels resolution let us enjoy watching movies and videos more. Second, the chipset of G Stylo supports the latest LTE 4G connectivity. Ultimately, we have the help of our diminutive rod whenever we get our hands dirty or want to opt for the handwriting feature on a note-taking tool.
What We Consider Unsatisfactory
LG G Stylo’s titanic display has been unjustly endowed with low 258ppi pixel density. While we love the aid of the stylus, it actually lacks the precision we found with the ones used by Samsung devices.
Also, the 1GB RAM is getting obsolete most especially after the fleet of 2GB’s, 3GB’s and 4GB’s has appeared this year. We also noticed the absence of the QSlide apps meant for mini multi-tasking activity.
Unfortunately for LG, the G Stylo model does not live up to expectations of reinvigorating the usage of stylus pen. The lack of innovative enhancements and precision left us disillusioned of a great revival.
