Mid-range LG Stylo 5 hits Cricket Wireless
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.
