I hate this phone because they didint want to spend the extra money to put a gyroscope in the phone
Lg stylo 2 Has been updated to Nougat 7.0 you have to change that, beside lg stylo 2 released with marshmallow 6.0.1 and yours is 6.0, this page has to be updated soon
The storage on the phone is horrendous! Once you download an app, there is no way to get that storage back. Also the phone keeps updating every 5 minutes and wont allow me to use it until I update it. Though I need more storage to update it. Storage that I can't get back.
Stay clear of this phone! Not worth the time or money. While you're at it, stay clear of Verizon. They keep auto downloading apps I don't want and cannot delete.
VERY disappointing upgrade to Stylo G! My $260 FAIL!!
The Stylo 2 is the NEW COKE of LG phones!!
The Stylo G was a REALLY good phone for me. I did have constant storage battles with the small internal storage, but was good phone! The phone case I had wore out and caused the screen to get cracked. The glass got so cracked 2 months later that it took out the digitizer and I needed to a new phone quickly or miss out on prime economic opportunities. In my situation at the time. My choices where these:
Doing an Insurance claim would have lost me 4-5 days transit time alone and would still have the same pitiful storage problem!
Or, I could (I should have!!) have gone to another service provider. Bought the Stylo 2, which they had the PLUS version of, for $80 but would get the same poor service I left 2 years ago!! Other than Getting twice the internal Memory and a tiny Increase in processor speed.than the Stylo G. The LG STYLO 2 LG-K540 is a PIECE of GARBAGE!! The Glass broke from using the P.O.C. stylus that was falling apart 5 days out of the box!!!! Cricket Wireless is a P.O.S. company that sold me this H.O.J. without informing me there was a $35 upgrade promo going on at the time. Then when I called them on the 6th day of the 7 day return period about the glass issue;. They said the return policy is only for undamaged and unblemished phones. That I'd have to use my insurance to get it fixed!! If I keep this phone and my service it will cost me OVER $260 for a $90 out of date and poorly engineered phone!!! $165 for phone and $35 for activation, $75 insurance, $20 for 2 new styluses to cover the next 6 months of use and hours of lost set-up time and hours more to reset the new phone!!! The Stylo 3 was due to be released by cricket wireless two days after I bought this Poor excuse for a phone! It would have cost me $210 and 2 more days of lost productivity to get what? The Stylo 3 is the stylo 2 with recessed glass like the Stylo G, Slightly better cameras, A gyro and the Gorilla Glass they should have put on the Stylo 2 since they decided to slap regular glass on it as an after thought. At first I thought the screen was a cover protecting the main screen. You can't even hold the phone on it's edges without turning the phone on or running an app next to the edge of the screen!! I can barely put it in my pocket without butt dialing North Korea, making a video of inside my pocket or turning on location and checking the weather in 9 states!! No wonder why all of the you tube videos are about replacing the glass on the 2 and not the G...!!?? So you did it LG!! It only took you from what I can guess is 400+ versions over 3 years and 3 generations to build an LG G Stylo the way it should have been since day One!! Beta Testing is done now!! You can drop the 3.....Like the new rear cover makes you do!
Pros: has decent battery life charges relatively fast and has fair camera.
Cons:the stylus doesnt do much and its low memory and high amount of preinstalled apps. phone quality fades within a month of using.
warning rant. no straight bashing. just facts that ive noticed.
i have this phone. the straight talk version has 8 gb of memory not 16 and it comes with so many pre installed apps that even after i uninstalled updates for them and disabled them it was still using more than half of the total memory. i have three apps installed and i have a warning for being out of memory space. it was sold to me as "lg's answer to the note series by samsung" its not. the stylus is hardly useful. this phone starts out good but very quickly wears down and slows down a great deal. i do not recommend to anyone.
I loved this phone until last month when it updated to nougat. I HATE the ugly Blob smilies it has now.. And it will not let you use any other smilies on different keyboards. The few smilies in the drop down box that they made"cute" still show up on everyone I text as the green Android smilies.. Which are ugly. The phone freezes now. When I write an email the typing is very slow and sometimes will not send now to people that i have been emailing forever. And the keyboard keeps changing size as I'm typing...I had none of these problems before they updated from marshmellow to nougat. Ruined my phone!
I'm not much of a phone guy so grain of salt and all. My friend gave me his old Stylo 2 after Seeing the old LG Optimus L90 (D415) I was still using ( a great cheap phone in its day) and the Stylo 2 is a very nice phone. Now superseded by the 2 plus, 3 and 3 plus this phone still holds its own if your phone needs are not that great. I basically make calls, watch videos/youtube on it and having the stylus is a nice bonus, i have used it a few times. Picture and video quality are quite good as well. My only gripe is at times the phone feels overly large and I don't have particularly small hands, but to be honest its a minor complaint overall. Actually one of 2 gripes, for some reason I haven't investigated too much into I'm not able to flash this phone with another ROM so I'm stuck with the bloatware the phone came with, but for the price how much can I really complain.

Smart device. It is updated to the Android 7.0. Huge screen. Excellent battery. Excellent sound. I love this device. I recommend
Cshepprun, 10 May 2017The thing I noticed about the LG Stylo after the hype of the cell phone passed, was the pictur... moreThe photos appear fuzzy on the screen because the camera is 13 MP and the screen is only 720p and 13 MP takes pictures at 2160p resolution so yes all pictures taken with the phone will appear fuzzy
One of the best phones I have owned havent had any issues with this phone! Although it is big it took me a little while to get used to it it but GREAT phone!!!!
first the phone was fine, it worked the way it was supposed to I loved the phone. Then out of nowhere it started updating like 5 times a day, now the phone sucks. I can't close apps without having to restarting the phone. When I open apps, all I see is a black screen or a plain white screen. I have to keep restarting the phone when it freezes, I turned off automatic updates but the phone still updates every day. I hate this phone now, which sucks because before this was the best phone that I've had. Oh yeah, I can't hang up when calls end when I try to call someone the phone freezes then tries to call the person I was trying to call while that person is calling me.

Unwanted apps on the phone. 2nd day of owning the phone Virgin Mobile said all the data was used? Happened again the next month, they cut the data down to very slow. Always getting unwanted Facebook notifications. No way to stop them tried just about everything. My husband is not happy with this LG phone at all. May have to get rid of it after 3 months of owning it. It also has something to do with Google. Does anyone have any answers? The phone is a LG stylo 2
Since the nougat update my stylo2 constantly unmounts the sd card. Its very frustrating and the phone calls are horrible on Sprint. You could barely hear the person your talking to.
I had an IPhone 5s with boost. Unfortunately it just stopped working completely. I had insurance etc. I simply chose to get a new phone the LG Stylo 2. After a 12 hours the phone completely shut off on its own and "Mobile ID" kept popping up as not working. I was unable to receive any texts except my husband who also has LG Stylo. The next day I returned to Boost and they swapped the phone for a new one saying it maybe defective. I began to use the new 2nd LG Stylo 2 and was unable to receive texts from Iphones? I deactivated it through ITunes. The Mobile ID kept coming up again saying error. I returned to the Boost Carrier and explained. The agent said I would have to contact APPLE which I did and they said they had nothing to do with the texting. It was the PHONE. I am completely overwhelmed with frustration with this phone. LG STYLO 2 is a COSMETICALLY good phone only. As for its service for anything. IT'S HORRIBLE! Waste of my money and now I am left with a phone I can only use for speaking which I cannot use during work.
