LG Is Hoping To Meet Shortcomings of G3 Stylus With G Stylo
The smartphones with digital pen were once considered “cool” and “elite” but now their popularity has been fading. Still, companies like Samsung are keen on introducing phablets like Note 4 that come with a stylus. And also, Apple has its iPad Pro.
Following suit, LG introduced G3 Stylus in hopes to tap into the penabled phablet market but LG’s device was no match for Samsung’s Galaxy Note line. Now, LG is hoping to meet shortcomings of the G3 Stylus with its G Stylo. Despite small improvements, G Stylo is still miles behind Note 4 but maybe that is an intended decision of the Korean company.
The G Stylo features a 5.7 inch display as compared to the 5.5-inch G3 Stylus. The screen is also changed from qHD to 720p HD. The CPU is also improved from a 32-bit chip to a 64-bit Snapdragon 410 clocked at 1.2GHz. RAM, however, is slightly improved from 1GB to 1.5GB.
As for the camera, it is now 8mp shooter with 5mp front camera while the G3 Stylus had a combination of 13mp/1.3mp. LG is clearly focusing on providing better selfies in G Stylo.
A new addition in LG G Stylo is the in-cell touchscreen technology. Using this tech, the display and touch panels are merged into one single panel, making the overall display thinner and more sensitive. LG is using the same tech in LG G4 as well.
The phablet runs Android 5.0 out of the box and comes with LG’s UX features.
LG is not trying to win any high-end awards with this phablet, but the phablet is good for those who would like a big-screened phablet along with a stylus. It will not have a large price tag like Galaxy Note series.
