Any one else having issues with the stylo 2 losing sound for no reason whatsoever
Pamla007 , 11 Oct 2016I have a Samsung note7, that I have to swap out. I love the note7 and the s-pen. Does the LG S... moreI had both the note 4 and 5 and went with the lg stylo 2 after playing with my friends stylo to me it's very very close to the samsung notes but i luke the lg more it's snappier and very quick it has not froze up on me like the notes did it does not have the remote control part and it don't have a smart pen but other then that it's pretty much the same and it don't get as hot as a note either. After owning it since it came out i have no complaints on it. Seems samsung is going downhill the past 3 years i use to tell myself I'll only own samsung products but i thought i never would change brands but i did and i love lg phones they last longer and more durable. But if your looking for a great phone thats like the note get the stylo 2.
had a note 7 too. had to turn in my note 5 for the 7 so i have no other notes to use :( tried out the edge 7 and i dont like it. i went to edit a picture found myself reaching for the spen then it dawned.. my plan is to get the stylo on virgin or boost to and wait till the next note or another phone i think is worth paying 800 for.Mean while i'll be saving on monthly bills and i wont feel crappy for paying for a phone i dont/didnt even want to begin with (edge 7)
Frank, 03 Sep 2016Can somebody please tell me if this phone has video voice calling without installing an appYes. I used it today to call my wife on her Samsung phone.
Jazzqueen, 04 Sep 2016My Stylo 2 is the bom...Samsung phones are worth less for the money thou have to pay...I have a Samsung note7, that I have to swap out. I love the note7 and the s-pen. Does the LG Stylo 2 works like the note7?
B man for life, 18 Sep 2016No gyro so you can't use vr mode. Other than that I play all the time with no problems.Actually, it does have a gyro!
I have done much homework on the stylo 2 but I did with the original stylo and didnt find anywhere mention it came with so much stuff loaded on it that I couldn't load almost any of my own apps on it. Then when it updated I had to take apps off. Does the stylo 2 have this same problem?
Redstar98, 09 Sep 2016Does this thing allow you to change the apps to pics like the first stylo? I miss that part!Yes it seems to be a standard feature on lg phones.
AnonD-585571, 16 Sep 2016It doesn't seem to have a gyroscope but I'm not sure.Yes it does have the gyroscope.

Absolutely love my LG Stylo 2. The pen is fantastic regarding storage & capacitive feedback, with nominal issues for recognition upon first opening app. The subprograms for the pen work incredibly well with the base programs, & offer cross functionality with a number of non-base office function apps, such as Evernote, Adobe reader, & OfficeSuite (All able to be added as extra app options for the "Pop Pen"). The screen display is fantastic in bright sun conditions, & does not overheat quickly in hot surrounding temperature, but will get to burning temps in 85 degree areas within 15mins of moderate to high use. :( Regardless, the processing speed are impressive for such a competitively priced device (I purchased at $430 from Boost) but I still have issue searching Gmail & texts, which will either completely freeze the phone, or not allow me to open results in what feels to be 70% of the time. The camera does not compare to my previous LG Tribute 8gb rom & 1gb ram, SHOCKING, but with the HDR option, quality comes close, & doesn't suffer too much in low light conditions. I found that rooting the phone using traditional poot/ministro fashion required older versions of the releases, but removing the amazon apps & other non-essentials/un-wanteds lowered my inaccessible system from 5.58gb to 3.84gb. This phone has become a great replacement for the blackberry given to me by work, & the subsidy pays for my monthly plan, so the tradeoff is well worth it for anyone seeking to utilize this moderate powerhouse for work & play. If you're a selfie maven or a gamer, Don't Bother. It's great for graphics, but the battery can't keep up, & there is no option for battery swapping, unlike the G4. I give the phone a solid 3.5/5, based of the most recent top release, Samsung G S7.
AnonD-568999, 06 Aug 2016yes it does it better than my galaxy s5 didI sold my s5 on Craiglist and got the stylo 2 plus
tooshort, 16 Sep 2016i am thinking about getting this phone in october the lg stylo 2 can somebody give me a honest... moreI bought the lg Stylo 2 over a month now, I have had no problems whatsoever, price point is awesome, manufacturer gives a warranty.. shoot what's there to lose?? Buy the phone you'll love it.. one thing I do wish apps could be moved to SF card but that will take a root, and that will void your warranty.. but price can't be beat considering quality
B man for life, 18 Sep 2016No gyro so you can't use vr mode. Other than that I play all the time with no problems.I was very curious about whether or not the LG Stylo 2 had a gyroscope or not. It's very difficult to find this information on the web, so I called LG and was transferred to a developer since regular technical support could not answer my question. I finally received an answer to the long awaited question about the gyroscope... According to an LG developer (who knows just about everything there is to know about the Stylo 2), there IS a gyroscope. He emailed the official specifications to me, and that confirmed that there most certainly is a gyroscope built into the phone. Here is a list of the sensors that the Stylo 2 has: Accelerometer: YES, Digital Compass: YES, GPS: YES, Gyroscope: YES
If you are having issues with your gyroscope interfacing with your applications or hardware, I suggest you contact the developer of the specific application or piece of hardware that you are experiencing problems with. The information I provided came straight from the developers of the Stylo 2, and I have confirmed it by putting the phone in developer mode and running a hardware scan. It took a while to find out, but I'm glad that I finally got the facts from the actual manufacturer of the phone. After I was shown how to perform a hardware scan on the Stylo 2, it removed all doubt. Verdict: The Stylo 2 most definitely has a gyroscope. (This doesn't guarantee that it will interface properly with the app that you are using, however.)
Manny, 24 Sep 2016Does it have the "WIRED TETHERING?" no one seems to be able to answer that I bought the Stylo... moreThe Stylo 2 definitely has wired USB tethering. It allows you to tether via Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, or USB. All of the tethering options work equally well, but Wi-Fi obviously gives you the greatest range of all the options. I previously owned the Stylo 1, and it doesn't come close to the performance of the Stylo 2. With 2 GB of RAM, the Stylo 2 is MUCH faster and more responsive. I can run multiple apps in the background without any lagging. The bottom line: The Stylo 2 outperforms the Stylo 1 by leaps and bounds. I have never had any issues with lag, locking up, glitches, or any other type of unwanted behavior. LG did their homework on this one, and the result was a phone that compares to the ones which cost hundreds of dollars more.
That.one.guy, 26 Aug 2016Let's be real. Men with a big phone in their pocket, look well. Like a girl. And are you plann... moreUnless you're a 5" tall 100 lbs "man", this phone fits perfectly fine in the pocket of any man's pants or shorts. Unless you're wearing extremely tight jeans (disgustingly tight), it won't stick out of your pocket. Having owned phones with large screens for over three years, I've never once broken a phone due to it not fitting properly in my pocket. This may be a personal problem, but it certainly isn't a problem with the phone. The purpose of this thread is to post factual, objective information about the Stylo 2. Unless you bedazzled your phone, it won't make you look "like a girl". That's absolutely ridiculous.
matt, 23 Sep 2016No it don't have good storage and what year did it come out but I like the um screen and it do... moreThe Stylo 2 has double the RAM of the Stylo 1, and lack of RAM was the biggest downfall of the Stylo 1. I have played Pokemon Go on my Stylo 2, and it performs flawlessly... much better than the performance of the Stylo 1. It's amazing that adding 1 GB of RAM increased the performance as much as it did, but the Stylo 2 runs SO much faster, and there are no more annoying glitches that plagued the Stylo 1. It is absolutely worth spending the money to buy the Stylo 2. It is a MUCH better phone, and multiple upgrades were made to improve overall performance. It performs like phones that cost hundreds of dollars more! I found mine at Best Buy for $79 on sale! I guarantee that you'll be blown away by the Stylo 2's performance compared to the Stylo 1.
