LG has launched its new Stylo 4 phablet. The device comes with a Stylus Pen for productivity, and a US$179 price tag that makes it a hard pass for those seeking a Galaxy Note device in a much cheaper form.

LG has officially rolled out the latest device in its Stylo series, the Stylo 4. The Stylo devices are traditionally sub-midrange devices focused on productivity, and the Stylo 4 is no different. 

The Stylo 4 sports a 6.2-inch FHD+ display. It is, of course, an 18:9 device, so it probably doesn’t feel unwieldy in hand. The device is powered by a Snapdragon 450— an underclocked Snapdragon 625, basically—and comes with 2 GB of RAM and 32 GB of storage. 2 GB of RAM on a device is on the lean side these days, so that’s disappointing.

The device sports a single 13 MP rear camera and a 5 MP camera at the front for selfies. There is software-enabled portrait mode available, though. There’s a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a 3300 mAh battery giving the phone juice. Considering the size of the device, and the fact that its built for productivity, we can’t help but feel that the battery should be a tad larger. There is NFC present, and Fast Charge via the USB Type-C 2.0 port.

What makes the Stylo 4, well, the Stylo 4, is the fact that it comes with a Stylus. The Stylus Pen allows users to write notes physically, capture GIFs, and draw. It’s a bit like the S-Pen on the Galaxy Note series, albeit massively scaled down.
