The device's generously sized display has a 720p resolution and 258ppi pixel density, which is lower than you see on more expensive phones. Known as the LG G4 Stylus elsewhere in the world, it runs Android 5.1 Lollipop and includes preloaded apps from Boost Mobile.
The included stylus measures a little over 4 inches (102mm) and has a
soft rubbery tip. Unlike the styluses that adorn Samsung's Galaxy Notes, LG's stylus doesn't have any smart features. You can still tap, swipe and drag for added functionality.
The handset is powered by a 1.2GHz
quad-core processor and a removable 3,000mAh battery, which has an
estimated talk time of up to 24 hours. During our own battery drain test, it
lasted an impressive 13 hours and 50 minutes for continuous video playback.
The G Stylo is an inexpensive phablet that has a bit more functionality than your usual
large phone. Sure the pen doesn't pack as many smart features, but
it still comes in handy when you want to scribble down notes and
doodles. Check out more of CNET's coverage of LG phones here.
