70% LG Stylo 3 Plus Review: Phablet on a budget
Source: Mobile Syrup English Archive.org version
For the most part carrying around a charger or an extra battery will help with any battery issues, and if you're not often watching Netflix or playing games, the heating up issue won't be problem. At about $350 CAD outright the LG Plus 3 is worth considering.

80% LG Stylo 4 review: Beauty on a budget
Source: Android Central English Archive.org version
Maybe. Despite my minor complaints, this is a fantastic phone at $250, and a good phone overall regardless of price. Choose which exact version you get wisely if you're on T-Mobile, but even with some of the tradeoffs — no NFC, extra applications — the Amazon Prime version is a great phone in its own right.

The LG Stylo 4 is a budget Note 9 act-alike that might make you rethink how much you should spend on your next Android handset.

LG’s turned in a decent performer in most regards with the Stylo 4. The camera’s quite impressive and note-taking abilities set it apart from other devices. Nailing the basics like the screen and battery life help round the device out, but the computing performance leaves something to be desired. It’s not unusable by any means, though, so it may be a worthwhile compromise for everything else the Stylo 4 has to offer.

50% LG Stylo 5

While the LG Stylo 5 has a good stylus, that isn’t enough to save it. For the same price, the Moto G Stylus offers more power, better camera performance, more storage, and significantly longer battery life. And if you can live without a stylus, we recommend Motorola's Moto G Power, which gets you even longer battery life than the Moto G Stylus for $50 less.

70% LG Stylo 6 review: The stylus phone your wallet will love
Source: Android Authority English
The LG Stylo 6 offers a great screen, a handy stylus, and excellent battery life. You’ll also find that the build quality is far above the asking price. However, the MediaTek Helio P35 holds it back once you start to work too hard. It’s a good phone if you want to stream your favorite widescreen shows with stereo speakers, but it’s not a phablet for the power-hungry. LG’s exit from the smartphone industry also means you shouldn’t expect long-term security updates. If you really want a phone with a stylus that doesn’t cost too much, you’ll have to look at Motorola. The Moto G Stylus ($299) and Moto G Stylus 5G ($399) are great picks, and they offer more competitive specs than the Stylo 6. On the other hand, you can always ditch the stylus altogether and tap into the Motorola Moto G Power ($249) with its 49MP main camera and 5,000mAh battery instead.

55% LG Stylo 6 Review: Great Stylus Features, Sketchy Performance
Source: The Verge English
If speed isn’t a concern, a stylus is a must-have, and the price is right, I think you can live a reasonably happy life with this phone. Maybe my patience is just too thin, and a more enlightened person can coexist peacefully with it. The rest of us would do best to look elsewhere.

70% LG Stylo 6 review: A stylish stylus for the rest of us
Source: Android Central English
The LG Stylo 6 has a lot going for it, especially for the price. It sports a large, beautiful display, solid construction, a great battery, tons of memory expandability, a headphone jack, and a built-in stylus. But stuttery software performance and hiccups, along with lackluster cameras, keep this phone from being a real steal. Still, if you can put up with those tradeoffs, you're getting a lot of phone for not a lot of cash.

The LG Stylo 6 features a large, beautiful display, solid construction, a massive battery, and tons of memory expandability, as well as its trademark built-in stylus. But software performance and hiccups, along with a lackluster camera, keep it from being a real steal. It is currently only available through carriers, but an unlocked version will be coming later in 2020.

The Moto G Power is possibly the biggest threat, as it offers a more powerful chipset and even more battery life. But it’s a bit more expensive and smaller too, and no stylus, of course. Depending on what you prioritize, it may be the better buy. The Stylo 6 is a lot easier to recommend when considered with carrier discounts, but at full price it’s almost certainly not the most bang for your buck.

From its attractive design to its genuinely useful stylus, the LG Stylo 6 could easily be a winner if only it weren’t so slow. While we actually prefer the stylus experience here, the Moto G Stylus remains a better bet in just about every other aspect, especially performance, making it the stylus-equipped phone to get. If you don't need a stylus, meanwhile, you can score an even better deal with the Moto G Power or the TCL 10L, both of which are far more powerful than the Stylo 6.
