Prakash pk, 02 Dec 2017No news from gsmarena about LG stylus 3 latest update. -Less lag
-Faster Facial Recognition in low light (I know, surprise-surprise)
*still 7.0 Nougat, though (not even 7.1.1/7.1.2)
I have this phone since 1 month now and I love it. I needed a phone with (integrated) stylus and dual sim. I'm a stylus addict (have been using HTC stylus phones before the first iPhone came out) because of the precision and the ability to take notes. And I need a dual sim because I live in one EU country and work in another. Unfortunately the LG Stylus/Stylo 3 is not available in the EU (why??) but I was able to order it from a US company in Florida via ebay. I received a Stylus 3 model LG-M400DF which has 32 GB internal storage instead of 16 GB announced on the website (nice surprise). Total price incl. EU import taxes and shipping was 255 EUR. Basically, the only alternative currently on the market with stylus and dual sim is the Samsung Galaxy Note 8. Obviously, many will say there is no comparison possible, but here are 4 reasons why I prefer the LG Stylus 3 over the Note 8:
1. The Stylus 3 has 2 sim slots PLUS a micro SD slot - the Note 8 has a 2 slots, 1 sim and 1 hybrid slot, so you have to choose between extra storage OR a second sim
2. The Stylus 3 has a removable battery, the Note 8 doesn't. Battery life is actually really good on the Stylus 3, it usually lasts >30 hours (but I'm not a power user) and I bought an extra battery for 15 EUR which together give me an autonomy of approx. 3 days
3. Compared to the Note 4 dual sim (don't know for the Note 8): both Stylus 3 sim card slots have 3G & 4G, so no more need to physically switch SIM cards between the 2G and the 4G slot like in the Note 4 duos.
4. The LG Stylus 3 is 4 times cheaper than the Note 8 :)
For sure, the Note 8 has many other great features (e.g. better camera & display, waterresistant, more sensors, faster CPU, more RAM), but for me they are less important.
Mine is 3gb ram stylus 3. I just got notification of software update, ver. V10f-NOV-09-2017. Do anybody got the same updater & has any good experience in doing updating?
Thanks for kindly response.
I absolutely loved the display of this phone . I prefer 720p over 1080p anyday.......i am not a pixel freak. to watch phone at a distance....720 p is my ideal preference. ....i also love its 5.7 inch size....i havent bought this phone yet...........but i tried it in stores........what disappointed me is the rear camera......the pictures were very soft and no detail.......tried it in 2 stores and both places the camera sucked....the front facing camera is great. awesome. The speakers loudness is perfect....am sure the battery 3200 will last.......i really hope it gets a good camera update in the future....so i can think of buying it then....when the price goes down
weightycarlos, 25 Sep 2017I've been an LG fan ever since. But I can only go for their middle-ranged phones. So which one... moreLG Staylus 3 & LG Q6 both phones are at it's best. Bot phones hv latest software Android 7. Camera quality for both phones is same. Battery life of both phones is also almost same. But LG Q6 has higher display pixels then LG Staylus 3. LG Q6 is also stronger than LG Staylus 3 in terms of drop.
Only major difference is LG Staylus 3 has 5.7" display along with staylus. But in LG Q6 you get 5.5" display without staylus. Also LG Q6 is a compact phone cz display being 5.5", overall size of phone looks like just 5" display phones available in market & also it is 18:9 ratio phone, 2nd of it's kind in market.
In short, both phones are unique in themselves. It is us who has to decide which phone to buy.
Lauren Sanders, 05 Oct 2017I bought my I new LG stylus 3 months ago and started using it 7 weeks ago after having added ... moreStill u can visit LG service centre with boc n bill. They will surely help u with the same.
Guys can someone help me I have to charge my lg stylus 3 everyday cuz the battery drains so fast when im not using it.
Bandreqx, 25 Oct 2017my only complaint is.... the plus version in indonesia comes out just two months after i bough... moreDid you mean the LG G6+ or Q6+? Because there's no LG Stylus 3+ released in Indonesia. In fact, there's not even plus version of Stylus 3, there's only Stylo 3 with configuration 32GB/2GB compare to the Stylus 3's 16GB/3GB but then again Stylo 3 is not for Asian market.
My hand on experience at the phone mall:
The display is best in class. I was blown away by its size. It is way better than any 5.7 or 5.5 screens..........because of 720p the videos look even more bigger. I am in love with this display
The camera..........front...........A class camera. Amazing
Back camera...........worst ! below average
But i loved this phone
brandon, 31 Oct 2017my lg stylo 3 is bending Stop sitting on it
www.undecisive.com, 24 Oct 2017Is the low ppi noticeable? Might buy if not.At a normal using distance, you cannot distinguish individual pixels with 20:20 vision.
Cheers, lad. :)
