LG G Stylo brings note-taking fun for budget-minded wallets

We were hoping for something a little more… exciting for LG’s first stylus-focused phone of 2015, but this’ll do for now. It’s the LG G Stylo, a 5.7-inch device that boasts just 720p resolution and a 1.2GHz quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 chipset.

The mid-range specs continue with 1.5GB of RAM, 8GB of internal storage expandable via microSD, an 8 megapixel camera on the rear, a 5 megapixel sensor on the front, a 3,000mAh battery and Android 5.0 Lollipop out of the box.

A big draw will be the device’s included stylus for writing on your display, though the stylus seems to be little more than a capacitive pen the likes of which you can buy for nearly any capacitive touch screen device on Amazon. It won’t equip you with advanced features such as the Samsung Galaxy Note line’s digitized pen which can sense pressure, detect the presence of the pen when it’s hovered over the display and more.

The LG G Stylo is being launched in South Korea to start, though there’s no word on launches planned for other territories in the near future.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

  1. Bummer, I was hoping for some Galaxy Note competition.

    1. This is some competition for the note….2

      1. Not even close if it is just a capacitive stylus. A Wacom stylus would be needed to be competition to the Note 2 as well as some other software and hardware refinements to be a true competitor.

  2. Sleeper article…next!!

  3. The Shield stylus is really good for taking notes , so this one might be good as well.

    1. I second this, I like the ST’s stylus better than any SPen I’ve used.

  4. It’s $460 quite a rip off if you ask me.

  5. Do these companies just not want the non-Samsung Note market? Sheesh.

  6. This makes sense if it’s only a Korean market thing. Doesn’t appear to be nearly as good as anything from Samsung in regards to the stylus but at least it’s built in which makes it far more practical than carrying a stylus separately for any other device out there.
