We once called the LG Stylo 5 a "Galaxy Note competitor on a budget." Today, Amazon is giving you the chance to snag the usually-affordable phone at an even better price. The Amazon-exclusive LG Stylo 5 32GB Unlocked Smartphone is now available for $219.99 for a limited time. That's $80 off the typical price as well as one of the best deals we've shared yet for this specific version. The price applies to both the Black and Silvery White models, and they both ship for free as well.
If you're in the market for the latest, greatest, bleeding edge Android phone, this isn't what you're looking for. However, the LG Stylo 5 is a perfectly reasonable option that gets you plenty of features for the price you'll pay. It'd be great for anyone that doesn't need their phone to take incredible photos or be the fastest on the block. Teens, grandparents, and the tech-minimalists would all get by just fine with the Stylo 5.
This device has a 6.2-inch FullVision 2160x1080 display with 389ppi. It also features 3GB of onboard RAM, and you have the option to add up to 2TB more of storage by taking advantage of its microSD card slot. There's a 13MP rear camera and a 5MP wide-angle selfie camera, as well as a 1.8GHz Octa-Core Snapdragon processor. Basically, it's good enough. You're not going to win any smartphone photography awards or impress anyone with the speed of this device, but once again, not everybody needs those features.
Additionally, this Amazon-exclusive model comes with pre-installed Amazon apps like Audible and Alexa. The latter will come in handy, as the phone also has Alexa built right in. Double-press the power button to ask Alexa for weather forecasts, music playback, and more. The LG Stylo 5 also comes with a precise stylus that makes the perfect companion for note-taking, photo editing, and more.
One thing to note is that the LG Stylo 5 ships with Android 9 Pie. There's currently no word on whether or not it will receive Android 10. If you're interested in a new phone, but the LG Stylo 5 isn't for you, check out our list of the best unlocked smartphones for every budget.
