What the Critics Are Saying...


The LG Q Stylus presents itself as a sturdy smartphone for everyday use. It offers good performance and can manage a little more than your basic WhatsApp use and Internet browsing. The included stylus gives this device a unique feature for this price range.

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...

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.

The LG Stylo 4 is a good phone. As long as you’re not a power-user who needs a top-notch processor, this phone is perfect for your every day use, and great for taking notes or just doodling during your meetings. I love this phone, it punches up and tries something that most manufacturers seem afraid...

The Stylo 4 is a definite improvement over LG's previous Stylo phones. It takes a big step forward thanks to the overhauled metal design and adoption of USB-C. The big screen offers an expansive canvas on which to use the stylus. It's an appealing piece of hardware.
