After a long wait, the successor of long-launched LG Stylo 5 has been revealed. The LG Stylo 6 is the new LG’s budget offering with stylus support. The smartphone is official in the USA at $220 through Boost Mobile. The Stylo 6 is currently one of the few budget smartphones that feature a stylus. The phone also comes with the triple camera setup, fast charging, and tall-display.
The sixth-gen of LG Stylo smartphone has a different design language than its predecessors. There is a horizontal camera layout on the rear side. Followed by a fingerprint scanner underneath the camera setup. And at the bottom, there is LG branding. The smartphone looks neat from the rear side, and with gradient color, it looks stylish. There is also a dedicated Google Assistants button. On the front, we have a U-shaped notched display. For the stylus, we have a compartment at the bottom edge of the device.
The phone comes with a 6.80-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080×2460 pixels and an aspect ratio of 20.5:9. LG Stylo 6 is powered by a 2.3GHz octa-core MediaTek Helio P35 (MT6765) processor. It comes with 3GB of RAM. The LG Stylo 6 runs Android 10 and is powered by a 4000mAh battery. The LG Stylo 6 supports proprietary fast charging.
The processor seems pretty average but the setup should be adequate for basic usage like web browsing or messaging. Paired with the large display and battery, it should make a nice choice for seniors or those who don’t expect or need much from their device.
As far as the cameras are concerned, the LG Stylo 6 on the rear packs a 13-megapixel primary camera; a second 5-megapixel camera, and a third 5-megapixel camera. It sports a 13-megapixel camera on the front for selfies.
LG Stylo 6 based on Android 10 and packs 64GB of inbuilt storage that can be expanded via microSD card (up to 2000GB). The LG Stylo 6 measures 171.20 x 77.70 x 8.64mm (height x width x thickness) and weighs 219.00 grams. It was launched in White color.
Connectivity options on the LG Stylo 6 include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth v5.00, and USB Type-C. Sensors on the phone include accelerometer and fingerprint sensor.
Smartphone power users may maintain that Samsung’s Note family is the only phone with a built-in stylus worth considering, but LG’s Stylo lineup has seen steady popularity as a solid entry-level handset.
The LG Stylo 6 retails for $220, but Boost Mobile has a promotion going that cuts down the price by $40. At $180, the handset is a decent budget choice, and, based on the series’ historical success, is likely to be a hit with the general public as well.
