An expansive 5.7-inch screen

Tucks in nicely

Quad-core power and an enduring battery

Weighty in your hand

A curved back and a stylus up top

A tad more functionality

The G Stylo is a 5.7-inch Android handset that has a built-in stylus. In the US, it's available on Boost Mobile for $199 (that's around £130 and AU$265 converted).

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 phone sports a wide and rectangular design that's similar to LG's G4 flagship. But given its larger display, it feels hefty.

The G Stylo's subtly arched back does make it comfortable to hold, and it helps with grip. On the left of the top edge you can see where the stylus is stored.

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.
