What People Are Saying

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Almost perfect.... I bought my phone on 9/17. Overall, it's a very well made phone with amazing preformance as far as speed and functionality. I did however, find two unfortunate flaws. The screen and stylist pen are a little to small for comfort in my opinion. But, the most disappointing and unfixable was the auto focusing rear camera that will not focus on documents. That feature was the biggest selling point for me when I purchased it. I needed to be able to take pictures of documents to send in to my job so I could be paid. It was a pain when all my pictures came out blurry and even worse when I was told there was no way to fix it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous for Artists considering its Price Point I'm a fine artist. And i use Note tablets to draw/paint. Yesterday i decided to dive into purchasing this phone solely for its precise stylus pen+screen it "claims" to have. Being a big fan of the Note's wacom technology that produces super precise accurate lines, i decided to buy this phone and see how accurate its stylus is. Surprisingly, this phone does not use wacom at all, and yet is able to render precise lines as well as a Note's lines. I do not know just yet the tech being used underneath the screen but i can safely assume the LG's stylus is just a very fine pointed stylus with the same tech as any other random stylus and not using any distinct new tech. What makes the difference is the sensors under the LG Stylo screen. Point is, i am amazed by how accurate, responsive and precise the screen is to such a ultra fine point stylus pen while not using wacom tech at all. I highly highly recommend the Stylo series to artists, scribblers, and notetakers alike. You wont be disappointed. Especially considering its price range. Well done LG. Applause. Though...i do disagree with LG insisting still after so many years to make it difficult to root and install recovery programs like TWRP on their devices. That other Korean phone company beats you in that regard. Because i wish i could root just so i can install TWRP so i can recover the system software in the case it would ever become corrupted. Still, phone is 10 out of 10 hands down.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A great phone with great features I bought this phone a year ago on 12/17/16, and I have never had a problem with it. It is by far the best phone that i have ever had. The size and features are all great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Beats the S7 Edge Amazing phone!! After using a free S8 Edge for a week i went back to the Stylo 2. Waaaay better. I have Two major complaints tho; #1 The keyboard is wildy inaccurate (3rd attempt to write this review accually) #2 Last update added clear all at bottom of screen & is constantly hit on accident causing important apps to close, 2 huge pains. LG makes the very best phones please look into this

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Meets or exceeds quality of other popular phones I love this phone. It's slim and fits comfortable in your hand with a larger easier to read screen. The stylo comes in handy if you're clumsy with your fingers. I have had this phone over a year. I've dropped it so hard that the back popped off and the battery went sailing through the air and it has not broken. I've dropped it on tile, and on asphalt and it has endured without a case or cover on it. I really wish I had bought two so I would have another one when I wear this one out!. As always LG comes though! Thank hyou!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Phone I've Owned I used to be a die-hard Apple fan but I was instantly hooked when getting the Stylo 2 Plus. Best phone I have ever owned!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Waterproof I have had this phone for about 9 months now. I have been very careful with my phone until it fell into a mop bucket full of water. Unto my surprise and after being fully submerge for a good 30 minutes, I pulled it from the water and my phone still worked. Of course, I put it into a bowl of rice for 24 hours, today its still like it never fell in to water. I do not advise this all but never worry when you have an LG you have a devise for Life. Thank You LG, Sincerely Kristen, OKC
