Anonymous, 30 Oct 2020I'm reading these comments, and can't help but wonder if these electronics manufactu... moreI've noticed the same thing. It appears a certain brand has a large contingent of paid trolls on this site. who goes around leaving glowing reviews on that brand's phones, and trashes their competitors' phones.
I have had this phone for over a year and honestly it's the best phone I've had and I've owned every model of stylo besides the 4, this phone is fast and responsive, I play emulators with no issues, pc games, even stream my xbox. I use only Bluetooth bone conduction headphones and they work great, I've unlocked developer options and this phone is highly customizable if you know how. All these people complaining about this phone are either bots, spoiled, paid to smear it, or mentally challenged.
So far this has been a terrible phone. It's so sluggish even snap hat filters barely work. The camera is ok but coming from a J7 crown left a lot to be desired. Scrolling the net is slow if there are a lot of images and i have to restart the phone at least 6 times a day. It's solidly built but lacks processing lowerperiod and how a phone for its price is running snapdragon is beyond me. Not worth it at all for the price.
This is worse phone i purchased In a while....will not be buying another lg...i have bad service where it was always fine in past and seems like it cant keep up any with gaming...
BP, 12 Nov 2020Stylus? Mine did not come with one. Was it supposed to? Did you find your stylus? Just push the little square under the bottom and it's spring loaded. Should pop right out!

Dim Sum, 15 Oct 2020worse phone ever!! -spell correct is horrible. cant fix -50 trash calls a day!! never happe... moreTwo of your problems could have been solved by just downloading the Google keyboard. Losing the stylus was your fault not the manufacturers. Do you just enjoy complaining?

I'm reading these comments, and can't help but wonder if these electronics manufacturers engage in smear campaigns against LG, or one another.. whatever, what have you. I have owned my LG Stylo 5 (boost) for just under 1 yr. This is the best phone I have ever purchased. The stylus makes navigating the phone a good experience. The precision when typing, scrolling, and clicking is very nice. Having 1080p resolution with the potential for great brightness (if you want it/ choose), adds to that experience as well. Browsing through the landscape of the device, flowing in and out of different pages, loading videos, etc. is quick enough for my purposes (I find it to be fairly fast). Now, LG skin is not my favorite.. but.. I like it. It's simple and a relatively user friendly version of Android. The phone isn't perfect by any means. There are better phones on the market (duh!). But, for the $180.00 I paid for it--- It has and continues to be very good to me.
I do not recommend this phone. It was overrated and it's why i had bought it. But the processing is so slow i have to restart it to work half decent.
Shopping for another phone..maybe a Samsung.
problems i have with this phone
- purple and red ring on the screen after being in my pocket with something else for 5 minutes
- horrible camera compared to a phone i had that was 1/3 of the price of this one
- battery degraded too fast, even with battery saver on 24/7 it dies really quickly
- got laggy really fast
- being on an app for a while burned 3 images into the screen
- screen colors are inaccurate
- absolutely horrible mic and speakers, they sound like they came out of a 2010 McDonalds toy
- taking the back off is possible but voids the warranty, so you have to send the phone to them and pay for them to take the back off for you and a put in a new battery when your battery inevitably degrades to nothing
- styluses are $8 base price and break easily
worse phone ever!!
-spell correct is horrible. cant fix
-50 trash calls a day!! never happened before.
-stylus fell out, cant replace
-ghost crap taking up memory
-cameras both suck.
-key board too small, cant change it
- speaker is horrible
-sound is horrible
another example of piss poor management by a group of people trying to steal your money!!
good phone comparable specs to iphone x had sd card 128 gb backup bought on sale from att $150. pie (9) os has built in ai. cant beat it specially for price.
