Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent phone I really like my Stylo 2, I replaced a G2 and find this phone very much it's equal. I like the new Marshmallow O/S. I like the stylus, it's so easy to use and then slip right back into it's little hole. It's quick, the screen is bright and easy to read. I like that you can put a huge SD card in there if you want. Feels good in the hand, it is very thin and looks like a more costly phone. The battery lasts all day with everyday use and into the next if I'm not using it much say on weekends. I highly recommend this phone, I recommend ANY LG phone, that is all I buy and use they are great, great phones. Hands down winner of any brand out there in my opinion, in ease of use, battery, UI and appearance.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Decent, but too quiet If you're a big music fan, you'd probably do well not getting this phone. I cannot stand how much quieter it is compared to my Stylo 1 at full blast. There is an extremely noticeable difference. It's frustrating to say the least, and it sounds as if someone put a pillow over a speaker. You folks at LG, I am responsible for what I do to my hearing. You guys don't need to lower the volume on your phones to protect us from losing our hearing. But overall, it's not a bad phone. Everything else about it is decent. OK picture and video quality. Screen is nice. 3 stars.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great phone but it mine doesn't have fringerprint scanner ..Can this be fixed?
Date published: 2016-12-24
Rated 3 out of 5 by from Pretty good I bought this phone a weeks ago December 2016. Everything works great on the phone except the camera and gallery. It will not save some of my pictures, the camera freezes on me and as of now isn't even working. (As in I click the camera app and nothing shows up). My gallery will freeze on me and I will have to turn my phone off and back on it to still not work. Some of my picture that do show up won't even upload to social media. The apps won't move to an sd card and I have 128 gb card bc I download so much music and take so many pictures. This phone would be a 5 star if these problems were fixed.
