LG's Stylo 2 brings large-screen, stylus-slinging action to Cricket for cheap

The 5.7-inch smartphone runs Android 6.0 and costs $170 -- less if you switch over from another carrier.

The LG Stylo 2 sells for $170 on May 13.

Cricket

What's cheap, big and lets you write all over it? LG's new Stylo 2 phone for Cricket, which has a digital pen you can use to navigate around, doodle with or use to jot notes.

It's a lot like the global LG Stylus 2 that the company announced in late February, but with a lower-resolution front-facing camera: 5 megapixels instead of 8.

The 5.7-inch, Android 6.0 phone goes on sale May 13, just in time for Mother's Day, for $170.

Cricket, AT&T's prepaid arm, will slash $50 if you jump ship from another carrier, and a whole $100 if that carrier is T-Mobile, specifically. Their rivalry does you good.
