The Samsung Galaxy Note 4 isn't the only phablet with a stylus these days. LG's G Stylo has an even larger screen (5.7 inches), a stylus and a nice price tag ($288 all-in).

After spending a month with its Prepaid and Boost Mobile brands, the G Stylo comes to Sprint's own network. The Lollipop-flavored device has a 1.2GHz quad-core processor with 1GB of RAM and 8GB of internal storage.

On the camera front, we find and 8-megapixel rear camera with laser auto focus; the front-facing 5-megapixel shooter comes with Soft Light and Gesture Shot enhancements.

Just like on other smartphones, LG sprinkles in custom software such as Knock Code and Quick Memo+. The former lets you set a personalized unlocking code, while the latter takes advantage of the integrated Stylus.

While the silver phone's full retail price comes in at under $300, you can also buy the G Stylo for $50 with a two-year service agreement. Alternatively, customers who opt for the Easy Pay plan will pay $12 each month for two years.
