I've had no problems with this phone. Had it for roughly a year now, and plan on keeping it for at least another 6 months. My only gripe is battery drain while gaming, but this isn't actually a phone made for that, so I really can't complain. My spouse has the newer Stylo 5, and I feel like it's the same phone in a slightly bigger body. All in all, it's a solid phone, well worth the 140 I spent on it.

All service providers can configure there phones and add software and bloat to there liking.
The manufacture adds what the service provider specifies.
The same problems occur with Cricket, T-Mobile, and Boost, they are nortorious for crappy support. And, they are franchises that move around to save money on store rental cost.
You buy real cheap plans and you usually get CRAP customer service and connectivity.
And, more often than not, it,s the purchaser that has no idea how to use the phone in the first
I love my phone. The battery lasted almost all day without having to be charger at all. However I was getting in my car when the phone slid out of my pocket not even three feet from the ground and shattered my whole screen. It still work and is fully functional thank goodness. I really think it something with LG's screens because I had it happen to an LG G 2.

Won't let me sue mobile hotspot saying I'm not subscibed. I took it into boost and after two hours I'm told to call LG. I call LG and they tell me to send it in and it will take a minimum of two weeks to get back to me. Yes my rear end feels sore..
I however still owe 120.00 to boost because I bought this on installments. I guese since I've been with them 10 Years they want me to move along. I surely am not going to be without a phone for two weeks. I couldn't do stuff like this about crappy shit they sell us and shitty crap return policies LG. I will never buy one again..
However I must say the young lady in the boost store was kind and patient so I of course retarded her monetarily.
Signed LG SucksAlot
This phone is a piece of crap. icons never stay where you put them. the screen flickers at low backlight setting. the battery drains super fast due to these stupid bloatware sprint boost mobile apps. apps freeze. chrome freezes and hangs all the time. and worse of all its a lame sprint locked phone. the only company that screws you out of taking a device you bought to another carrier.
I might've been unlucky and just got a faulty phone, but this is a piece of crap. Apps crash all the time, and the phone straight up refuses to charge at all. One time I had put it on the charger at 2% around night time, woke up in the morning and it was still on 2%. Just find any other phone that isn't this.

I have one right now as we speak. I have one through straight talk so this following problem could be just their fault. Myself and 2 other friends either currently have or have had the Stylo 4 all through straight talk. And we constantly run the problem of our service progressively dropping slowly after a few days. Example: it will be four bars in one spot. The next day it will be three. The next day it will be two. Then it will be one. Then suddenly our service cuts out completely. This can be fixed by restarting the phone, and when it it back on, it will be back at four bars.
Another 3 issue I personally have is one that I have never had with any other phone is where I place my fingers when holding a phone. And often I have found that I have clicked random parts of my phone screen while doing something important. I do a lot of graphic design and one ghost click somewhere sometimes undos everything.
The other two issues is the thumb scanner. While it is quick and accurate, I might argue it is too quick and accurate. I can't tell you how many times I have slid my phone into my pocket bringing my finger over the scanner and unlocking it as it goes into my pocket. I doubt there is anyway around that.
And the other issue is the fact that it will also attempt to scan anything and everything that comes in contact with the scanner. Until it gets to the point it says "unable to use finger scanner at this time" it's not hard to put in my other password but it's inconvenient.

Anonymous, 07 Aug 2019Is there anyone having an issue with buttons being pushed while on the phone?Yes, I'm about ready to break this thing in half. If it were in one place, I'd think it was an issue worth trying to fix. However, the ghost clicks keep changing, then go away for a few months, then return.
I know a friend who uses this. Has had it for a while and is perfectly happy with it because they aren't into tech that much. I am still surprised it's still working though, because this person has dropped it countless times, is scratched VERY heavily on the front and back... no cracks. Believe me, you'd think this was a Nokia if you saw how many times it's been tossed around.
xan3119, 11 May 2019I bought this phone after the nightmare of the Samsung j7 perx. Samsung should be investigated... moreIts perfect for me. I see people with phone that cast a lot of money and i still have more features more than them
I owned two different lg stylo 4, one to them was very bad it had horrible ghost touch m
Wife and I both got one at the same time; mine - no problems. Hers - freezing, sluggish, and the screen on hers appears to NOT be polarized. Found that out with my sunglasses on, turned my phone sideways and it went black. Checked out hers, turned it sideways and still saw the whole screen. How could the screens be different on the same phone, bought at the same time? So if you get a good one then you're good; otherwise, return it.
