I've had this phone for about 2 years and I've seen major declines in terms of performance. It constantly lags and freezes, the camera quality is garbage, storage is so small I can't get any app without uninstalling at least one app, and the battery life is terrible.
My brother and I were so happy to receive this phone first time due to our last phones which was the amazon fire phone not having google play. I enjoyed for a while until we saw declines in performance. In less than a year my brother gave up on the phone and got a Samsung Galaxy S7. I was still stuck with the phone giving it one more chance at being decent but as I kept using it it only got worse.
My 2013 Moto X (first gen) which was my first smartphone has a faster processor than the 2016 lg stylus 2. It was a cheap phone that I got on sale for half price but I see why they lowered the price. Don't get me wrong, LG is a great company but when it comes to phones, they suck.
Lastly, the stylus is pointless. I use it like 3 to 4 times in the 2 years I've had it.

My wife had an IPhone 6, I had the LG Stylo 2 (which I still have, but am about to upgrade). My phone ran circles around her phone in every way and did until hers completely bricked. I'm sorry, but if you compare specs on them the IPhone just always loses. All you're paying for is the name. Actually, my phone still beats the current IPhones' specs. Apple just doesn't compete, because they know that people will just buy it because it is an Apple product. It's great for their bank, but sucks for you.
I got my brother's old Stylo 2 when he bought a new iPhone. It makes an excellent MP3 player/web browser to cut the load off my Moto E4. The camera is terrible, although it is likely due to the front glass being cracked.
It is a decent phone, and repair parts are commonplace on Amazon.
My only suggestion for LG is to start using Gorilla Glass for their devices, especially since the prices are going down.
This has to be the worst phone I have ever owned. The camera sucks. It is slow and the photos are often out of focus. The text messaging is cumbersome and unreliable. The stylus note taking feature is crap. Don't waste your money on this piece of crap phone. I am going back to the iPhone.
I have had the phone 3 years, never cracked, great photo quality but its slow now and lags, looking for a new phone, but i never used the stylus.
The phone is alright, but nothing amazing. I've had this a year and a half and definitely now on the lookout for a new one. Camera photo quality is acceptable but could be better, and lags when opening camera app causing some missed photo opportunities. The phone has developed lag that it didn't have when i first bought it, so wouldn't recommend it for long use. The pen is handy but honestly don't really need it myself. I'd not necessarily recommend it unless you're on a budget
I have now owned this phone for just over a year. I've purchased this at a Boost retailer knowing I needed a bit more than the phone I've had with Boost for a year. It was Samsung phone but can't recall what model. After purchasing this phone I was definitely happy with it. 6.0 wasn't bad but definitely missed a few things. Update 7.0 did that right up and some. Anyway, I have now owned and used the heck out of this phone for ongoing 2 years and still running like a champion. I plan on keeping it much longer. This phone may not have all the whistles and bells. But, even to date with a 2gb ram 9gb free space memory (16gb internal memory) which is lame but i don't need to many things to begin with. All the apps still work for it's version. This thing is durable. Definitely worth a decent phone.
When we bought it new, my gf cracked the screen in her pocket hours later. But the firmware sucked, the screen was constantly wigging out (not from the crack) So it was shelved, I soft bricked it months ago trying to remedy the screen. Last night I pulled it back out to make it into an IP cam and in the interim update the firmware to Android 7.0. Now it works great using it as my wifi/voip/phablet. I was able to permanently network unlock it over the internet. Soon I will root it so I can uninstall the LG bloatware or give another shot at custom ROM. The bootloader is unlocked also which was easier to do than my LG P769
HELP why does my phone keep saying service disabled when the bills paid
It sucks. Freezes every other second, low storage, I don't think the phone is worth it and it doesn't update a 25 megabytes even though it has more than 500 megabytes of storage telling me to uninstall apps to make space
I have had my phone over a year and love it. I use an Apple Iphone for work and loathhhhhhhhhhe it. My LG is awesome and does have fingerprint access. Vids/photos are very good to excellent. For a phone that is $100 dollars at metro, it is so much user friendly than Apple. I have Sirus on it and good 4G and wifi. It stays charged for a few days unless I am doing a lot of surfing then charge it up for a couple of hours at night during dinner/tv and it is ready to go. For the money it still out-beats Apple hands down. Get it and love it.
POS phone. I've only had a few months and the battery doesn't hold a charge over night, it's supposed to have 16G internal memory and it only has 8G. It's supposed to have Android 6.0 and it has 5.1.1. Totally disappointed. I should have known better than to buy an LG and stuck with Samsung.
Regret buying this phone. When contract up it is definitely going. Rear buttons are ineffective and notification system for emails etc. are sporadic. It only notifies you of an email about 70% of the time therefore I miss urgent emails. I'm always having to look at phone to be sure I don't miss one.
slayer, 02 Apr 2018What a crappy phone this is... I have had S5 Galaxy, Xiaomi Note3 pro in the last few years. ... moreThis phone does not ven have a fingerprint scanner. I owned one and it is a solid budget phone.
What a crappy phone this is... I have had S5 Galaxy, Xiaomi Note3 pro in the last few years. This is a company provided phone, but I feel like I went several years back.
The fingerprint doesn't work most of the time, if it's cold, if it's hot, if is dry if it's wet...
sue, 27 Dec 2017I am in Kenya ,,got this phone from USA recently,its a great phone. but doesn't allow cellula... morePlease check with your carrier the LTE or band bands/bandwidth they use. Might be the ones this phone does not support. If that is the case you can only replace the set to fix it.
I bought this as an upgrade for another Samsung phone, and should have saved my money. In many ways, the "upgrade" was a downgrade. One annoying glitch is that to read an email to the end, I must "swipe up" to get the whole post. Another, is that deleting an email requires that you do this one email at a time and with an extra step. Most annoying is that making and deleting email files is so complicated that even the people at Verizon didn't know how to do it.
