Reviews for the LG G3 Stylus

60% LG G3 Stylus Review: The Pen Isn't Mightier Than the Touchscreen
Source: NDTV Gadgets English
We still aren't fans of LG's buttons-on-the-rear philosophy but we do have to give the company credit for its software enhancements. Considering the potential for one-handed use, the stylus, the low-resolution screen and the size of this phone, we suspect it might really appeal to people with weak eyesight or mobility impairments, or even those who are just generally tech-phobic.

The LG G3 Stylus has the right design, a good camera, a tried and tested UI but below average performance and that is what drags the phablet down. Instead of standing tall as the budget go to phablet with a stylus, it remains LG’s lost opportunity.

A cheaper, weaker G3 complete with stylus
Source: Techradar English
Is there space (and demand) in the market for a cheaper looking and feeling LG G3 with a questionable stylus? In short, not really. To be fair it looks like the G3 Stylus will be targeted at specific markets such a Asia and Latin America, and it may never make an official appearance in the likes of the US, UK and Australia. The screen is surprisingly good considering

LG G3 Stylus hands-on: Is the Stylus mightier than the finger?
Source: Pocket Lint English
Overall, the LG G3 Stylus design is nice and fits in well with the LG G3 family despite looking a little less premium than the other devices. We would loved to have seen some more competitive specs but as LG is aiming for Brazil, Asia, the Middle East, Africa and CIS, as well as wanting to keep it cheap and cheerful, we understand that flagship specs weren't the plan for this device and it seems to do a good job at being a mid-range handset that offers stylus functionality.

Model: Not many smartphones come with a stylus and the LG G3 Stylus is a welcome alternative to the market. LG has even taken a dig at their obvious competitor claiming it is a better way to note at a smarter price. The simplistic design is elegant with slight curves at the top and bottom of the device. There are 3 colors to choose from; black, white and gold. The Android v4.4.2 KitKat smartphone comes with a good 5.5 inch IPS LCD with 200ppi. Color quality and brightness are decent and users will definitely enjoy the screen real-estate.

The affordable LG G3 Stylus comes with Cortex-A7 quad core processor clocked at 1.3 GHz, 1 GB RAM, Mali-400MP2 GPU and 8 GB of internal storage. This storage is upgradable with a microSD card up to 32 GB and will definitely be needed to enjoy full media content. Primary camera on the LG G3 Stylus is a 13 MP autofocus camera and it performs splendidly. There is a secondary 1.3 MP shooter in front of the device. Other features on the smartphone consist of Bluetooth 4.0, A-GPS and the obvious stylus. The 3000 mAh Li-Ion battery provides a pretty impressive usage time.


These graphics cards are not suited for Windows 3D games. Office and Internet surfing however is possible.

This display is quite big for a smartphone but frequently used for smartphones.

Large display-sizes allow higher resolutions. So, details like letters are bigger. On the other hand, the power consumption is lower with small screen diagonals and the devices are smaller, more lightweight and cheaper.

Only few smartphones are more lightweight than this.
