What you need to know
- You can now buy the LG Stylo 5 on Cricket Wireless.
- It costs $230 for new customers and existing customers that upgrade a line.
- The phone has a 6.2-inch screen and built-in stylus.
LG's Stylo series has been one of the better low-end options for U.S. consumers in search of a cheap Android phone that isn't total garbage, and this year, we're getting the LG Stylo 5 (opens in new tab). If you live in the U.S., the first place you can get your hands on the Stylo 5 is at Cricket Wireless.
Cricket is charging $230 for the Stylo 5, and for that price, you're getting a pretty competent Android handset. The Stylo 5 is equipped with a 6.2-inch Full HD+ FullVision display, 13MP rear camera, 5MP selfie camera, and an unnamed "octa-core" processor with 32GB of internal storage.
You'll also find a beefy 3,500 mAh battery, Android 9 Pie with LG's custom interface, and a built-in stylus that can be concealed in the bottom frame when you're not using it.
If you want to pick up the Stylo 5 for yourself, it's available on Cricket Wireless right now in both Blonde Rose and Platinum Gray. The only caveat is that you need to be a new customer or upgrade an existing line on a plan that costs $30/month or more.
How much RAM does it have? What kind of Snapdragon CPU? Does it have NFC? Did you just copy and paste the specs of last year's LG Stylo 4 and post it here? No new specs was given!
Exactly! I already gave up I just brought a xiaomi phone, and it's way better than any LG Stylo!
Exactly what I was thinking.. There's literally nothing different apart from the fact that it is a different android update
LG's custom interface in garbage.
Very dissapointing that LG releases a phone like this. Especially after how good the G8 is. I picked up the Samsung A50 with Verizon for the same price. Plus there's no comparison between the two. The A50 is just a better equipped phone in every category. Boo-hoo, LG this offering just plain sucks!
Why anyone would buy this over the cheaper (and more powerful) moto g7 supra is mindblowing. Weak specs and high price point for this device which appears is just a rebranded Stylo 4.
Aside from a little bit better battery and Android 9 I dont see any difference from the 5 and the 4. Seems the 4 has 3 gigs of memory and the 5 only 2. The Galaxy A 50 seems like a better deal if I needed a new phone. Will stick with the stylo 4 I have. Nothing worth changing for.
