Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it I bought this phone aboit a month ago. I really love it all i need now is to understand how to use the quick pop.

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.
