This phone is OK but there is no Android Marshmallow and no gryoscope or VR support. I sometimes is useless.
LG Ripped me off !, 27 Jun 2016As many others have stated, do not buy a LG G Stylo, total waste of your money. Slow, freezes,... moreI agree completely with you! Freezing...flickering...s l o w response...screen turns off on it's own and sits as a black screen. If I am paying for a service and a phone...I feel like I might as well throw $$$ out the window with this pos! Too much to ask for a phone without issues? How about one that alerts texts...too much to ask???
This phone sucks it keeps turning itself off and on by itself.Since the day it was new the memory slot doesn't work and the sim card slot also has issues loose connection sometimes have to check the phone all day to make sure I'm connected to my service.
Autumn, 14 Jun 2016I have the SAME issue with the GPS and my screen just started flickering this morning. I think some people got paid to destroy lg phones.. I have. Lg g4 stylo and I have no problem with it.
So i got this phone in february. I wanted another phone but my parents said it was too expensive. I needed a phone with a big screen. Well after about two months i hated how big the case mad the phone and i got into a fist fight and my phone fell out of my pocket and this was my first time dropping it without the case, the screen shattered. After that, the outter edge of the screen will blink sometimes. Also, when someone tries to call me, the ringer fand caller id to answer the call fail until the last 20 seconds. Finally, the battery dies too fast. Last night i went to sleep and left my phone on charge because it takes too long to charge. But thats not the worst part about the battery. I have to constantly buy chargers because every now and then, my phone will eat it. Within the last month, i would say i went through seven chargers. I would not recomend yhis phone to ANYONE! And that means alot because i usually never hate something this much. All to say in the end, this phone was a rip off and i will not bw buying another LG product
Anonymous, 29 Jun 2016Same. Either the 'Home' or the lock screen keeps freezing. Also, my data won't turn off even... more^Update: The problem didn't go away in Safe Mode, but everything was fine after factory reset. A third-party app probably messed up. LG Canada helpdesk were very polite and helpful in solving the problem.
i got this phone about 4 months ago and used it for a little while before changing carriers. As with other statements, this phone is total crap. unresponsive touch screen, freezing, lag. but the worst part is that once switched i gave the phone to my mother. A week after she transferred her number to the phone it permanently crashed and would no longer boot up. Kept showing a 'Secure Booting Error' Boost was no help in resolving this problem. Kept blaming LG. LG kept blaming Boost and would not honor the warranty.
Same. Either the 'Home' or the lock screen keeps freezing. Also, my data won't turn off even though it's set to 'off' in the Settings.
As many others have stated, do not buy a LG G Stylo, total waste of your money. Slow, freezes, flickers, screen turns off and on, no memory and the camera is the worst. I paid $230. back in Dec. 2015. Look around at the reviews and even at new low $79.99 price now they can't sell them.. Spend a few more of your hard earned dollar's and buy a Samsung, I wish I would have.
Not Happy :(
GrossJ, 10 Jun 2016I bou bought this phone less than 2 months ago very displeased the speaker would crackle and p... moreI wanna sew them because my whole family uses LG and they all have the LG Stylo one and when my phone's screen would flicker I emailed LG and they never even emailed me back I bet they are scared to make a recall because they dont wanna look like a crappy company
I got my phone and the screen would flicker a lot. My parents wont let me get a new phone so its all i have 😥
I keep hearing about a recall on the LG Stylo, after researching issues, and reading many comments, the only major issue I have with my Stylo is the GPS having trouble finding my location while searching directions. I'm rather good at navigation so I can normally get past this issue, but I can't say I've had problems with my screen "flickering" or the speaker crackling. She holds a damn good charge throughout the day, and my service is good, and I've had it for about 3 months now. Any replies and or complaints are welcome to help me better understand other issues.
I had an LG Volt before and I was pretty happy with it. Because of a busted screen I justified buying this LG G Stylo, mistake. I read all the reviews and it seemed like it might be ok, well not for me. Slow, like stupid slow at times, freezes and have to restart, buttons on the back is very inconvenient at times because of my case. It's not all bad but when your phone is so slow that you have to literally take time out from whatever your doing because it just doesn't want to respond, SUCKS!!! One more thing, it has this thing where if you are trying to put in your pin or password too fast it zooms in and you have to lock the screen and restart it or it wont work, stupid idea and it took me forever but I finally figured out how to turn off that stupid box thing that you would have to move around the screen before you could use other apps. Oh Yeah, it is freaking JAMED with bloat ware and worthless apps you can't delete or disable that use way too much memory. Spend more money, get a better phone, the savings weren't really worth it, but that's just my opinion.
My phone is very slow sometimes and my keyboard won't come up sometimes and it just randomly goes out of apps if I'm on them to long and my brightness will go to 100 percent but won't actually be at a 100 percent it's very dark
Omg..we have the same problem..my daughter phone doesnt send her messages..we have had many problems with this lg stylo..im sick of it as well..my daughtervwent tova different phone company got herself a new phone..she was told today that their is a recall..for her to call and they will send her a new phone..
I got this phone from Metro PCS nothing but trouble and I tried to replace it after 1 day because the phone has a mind of its own it flickers, changes screens at random opens apps and then closes them all while just holding it steady. So Metro POS finally gave me a replacement after 4 months and guess what, this new one does the same thing, except this one won't give you voice navigation. This phone however makes an excellent paperweight I wonder how many skips it will make on top of the lake?

They switched me into another LG G Stylo and morevproblems. Now I see Im not alone. The clerk admitted yesterday the phones are defective.
I've had the same GPS problems everybody has discussed. The best way I figured to keep the GPS locked is to lock your phone so the back light is not on. It will maintain lock all the way to your destination you can periodically push the lock button to light up the screen and see where you need to go. But make sure you lock it after. Is absolutely ridiculous I have to do this because LG will not acknowledge a problem.

I got this phone when it first came out. I have never had a problem with it until they did this major update. Screen flickers, sometimes when i have to restart it, no names come up in contacts. Wish i could take back doing that update. Cuz before i really did like my phone.
