The low-end LG G Stylo reaches the US on Boost Mobile, soon to reach Sprint and Sprint Prepaid

May 13, 2015 | Hybrids, News

The low-end LG G Stylo reaches the US and sets a sell price of $200 on Boost Mobile, plus it will also come to Sprint and Sprint Prepaid in June. The device itself is rather weird, having a large screen with a built-in stylus that would make it a Galaxy Note competitor, but its low-end spec list fails miserably at pretty much everything.

You can find the device on Boost Mobile selling for $200 off contract and soon you will be able to buy it from Sprint as well. Starting June 7th, Sprint will sell LG G Stylo at the same price, and regular contracts and post-paid customers will get the device starting June 12th. Considering the fact that the $12 a month in 24 month plan takes the device at $288, you should buy it straight off the bat to save yourself some money, even on pricier plans.

The G Stylo is also available on T Mobile at the same price. It uses a phablet-ish 5.7” 720p screen paired with a Snapdragon 410 processor and 1 GB of RAM. This should be enough to run Android 5.0 and LG’s own skin, but that also includes some software meant for the Stylus which bloats things up. You also get 8 GB of storage plus a MicroSD slot and a 3000 mAh battery you can remove. You also get an 8Mp primary camera and a 5MP snapper in the front.
