This phone has got to be one of the biggest disappointments I've seen yet. After getting sick of dealing with Apple for so long, I decided to give an Android phone a try. So I got this phone for around 300-400$, which is much more affordable than apple, but you would think that much would get you a somewhat functional device. For the first few weeks, the phone worked great and the one issue I had noticed was that certain apps such as Instagram would constantly freeze and crash, but I just assumed it was some sort of compatibility issue with the OS so I ignored it. About a month later, I start noticing issues with the audio. Now the speakers were never great, but that wasn't a problem. The issue was with the headphone jack or whatever was outputting sound through the 3.5 millimeter jack and I noticed that at times, sound would only go through to one headphone or the other, this was annoying of course and kept happening to the point where I thought the jack stopped working altogether (I tested with more than one pair of course) and a few days later, when sound finally DOES come back, the quality dropped tremendously and listening through the headphones sounds horrible, and it still does to this day. Another major issue I had was performance, but it's LG so frankly I had it coming. The biggest issue of all though was with the touch screen and display. Recently, the screen started to glitch and think I was tapping in the bottom right of the screen which has still yet to cease, and because of it, I frequently had to restart the phone and now lines have appeared at the top of the screen and will not go away, and of course this is the worst issue because the other issues simply hindered the phone in their own annoying ways, this has severely limited what I can even DO with my phone and at this point, replacement of the phone with a different phone entirely is imminent. Note that the entire time I had the phone, I had a well made case and screen protector on at all times and severe damage has never been inflicted on the phone. However I have a friend who has the exact same phone and he's reported no issues with it, it seems that it's a gamble if you receive a 400$ paper weight with a T-Mobile subscription that I would not risk getting.

Dumb, 12 Jun 2018Your phone is broken or old because it's battery range is 14 hours. So your phone has a problem

Had a bad experience with an LG charger i bought. The plastic holding the metal that plugs to the phone was cracked. Phone would charge but not consistently. Had to throw that cable away.

My stylo 3 takes FOREVER. To charge. I mean I've had it plugged in all night while I slept and it only got to 68%. And that will go VERY fast.. I've only just gotten to this page and typed this and its already to 57%. Anyone else have this issue? What can I do to improve it a little? This is rediculous!
I Love this phone just got a new one again coz i messed up my screen completely. But my voice recording mic on both phones scratches and breaks up super bad... But on a phone call its good. Dont know if the same mic is used would it be software problem or the mic itself?

the battery life on this waste of a damn good phone is bad and backwards. From my experience with this Stylus series; there is no excuse for this kind of battery performance in comparison to even LG's previous Stylo 2 Plus which had a great battery life and didnt drain the percentage right before my eyes as soon as I toggle wifi or data etc on. If it's an issue regarding poor cpu battery optimizations etc then that is the only big issue I have with it. Hopefully i can use a LGV20 batt or another high MaH batt to solve what I find is the LG Stylo 3 Plus's only big issue.
This is my 2nd one from a MetroPCS store (returned 1st for all mentioned issues) and my 3rd device from the entire Stylus/Stylo series in their respective order. The battery life on this waste of a damn good phone is bad and backwards
Anonymous, 26 Mar 2018This phone sucks cant send pics unless you have wifi and data on. Takes forever to charge and ... moreno shit. how else you going to send pics but over data or wifi. i think you need to learn how to work your phone before you post such stupid remarks, you just made yourself look stupid.
I have one the CAMERA IS BAD it is codec or hardware on the chip that kills the ability to enlarge the pictures. Worst than JPG compression
Would i recommend this phone? Hell no! Bought it at target for over a $100 when i needed one and let me tell you its awful , apps constantly freeze and pop up with app isnt reaponding close app or wait (choose close then re open it) camera is bad quality and the phone is so easy to break constantly there is a new peice of plastic that is chipping off or screen cracking easily , the worst part i have so far is now when i watch YouTube videos or anything it will start fast forwarding or rewinding without me touching the screen whatsoever my advice dont be cheap get your self a iphone it will actualy work and wont want to make you throw the damn thing in a pit of fire
I just wish the stylo 3 plus had 2 slots for memory cards like the stylo 2 does it hold 2 memory card.
I love my stylo 3 plus the only problem is the camera pics r to dark and blurry other then that I have no trouble mine ..
It's just like the LG Stylo 3, only with more features that don't make it righteous enough to only have call and text service from MetroPCS. I wonder if the service works on Project Fi...
Everyone that posted has a point. Simply put I have the Stylo 3 plus. The phone is amazing to an extent. It also has its cons. For example, the battery does discharge very quickly. However it don't take super long to charge. The phone overheats very fast. There is always a virus in the phone no matter how many times you clean it. The camera is NOT a selfie friendly device and regular pictures tend to be dimmer and unconventional. Sometimes you have to tap a app several times before it act. Overall the Stylo 3 proves that, despite its few defects, it is a good device. I never understood why people spend alot of money on APPLE phones when, in my opinion, a smart phone like the stylo 3 crush competition.

Takes forever to charge and ... moreIt comes with a fast charger, and mine only takes an hour and thirty minutes to charge, and secondly this thing had an octo core so you must be high, smoking too much waki weed, so obviously your brains in slow more, and I'm sure this phone can run circle around your old shity phone, mine Stylo is fast, so I know your high.
