The latest device to join the Stylo lineup comes with a Cricket Wireless-exclusive color choice, namely Blonde Rose. Also available in Platinum Gray, this US$229.99 handset features an unspecified octa-core processor, stylus support, a 6.2-inch full HD+ screen (no notch or cutout), and 32 GB of internal storage space.

Cricket Wireless customers can now enjoy the latest addition to the LG Stylo lineup, namely the mid-range LG Stylo 5. Although this handset might be well behind the competition in the camera department, the Stylo 5 seems like a fair offering for those looking for a new Android Pie smartphone that won't blow up their budget.

Powered by an unspecified octa-core processor with a top speed of 1.8 GHz, the LG Stylo 5 comes with 32 GB of internal storage space and support for microSD cards up to 2 TB in size, a rather ancient camera setup (5 MP selfie shooter and a single 13 MP main camera), a 6.2-inch full HD+ Full Vision display, a 3,500 mAh battery, as well as 4G LTE and USB Type-C.

In addition to the above, the LG Stylo 5 also features a rear-mounted fingerprint reader and — obviously — comes with a bundled stylus. Those interested can get it in the Cricket Wireless-exclusive Blonde Rose finish or in Platinum Gray. The handset is priced at US$229.99, but the official product page also provides a link to various accessories, such as screen protectors, cases, kickstands, and so on.

Strange enough, Cricket Wireless forgot to mention the amount of memory this handset has and the processor model. However, it looks like we are talking about 3 GB of memory and the Qualcomm Snapdragon 450, according to various other sources. One more thing: those who are trying to view Cricket's website from Europe or another non-American continent might need a VPN to complete this task. Remains to see if this is a temporary problem or Cricket Wireless has decided to disallow access to its website from non-American markets.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
