- Analysis by KJ David
This sequel to the LG G Stylo, though bringing back the 720p-only 5.7-inch screen (a Full HD definition sounds more-appropriate for its size) and running on a basic-level 1.2GHz quad-core CPU , comes with several pros over its predecessor.
For starters, it is loaded with twice the memory and RAM, which correspondingly stand at 16GB and 2GB this time. It also replaces the formerly-8-megapixel main camera with a 13-megapixel shooter , while retaining the 5-megapixel frontal sub-cam. In addition, as if its name does not already give it away, the LG Stylo 2 comes with a stylus pen geared towards productivity. This accessory is backed by a 3000mAh battery power , which back then (as of April 2016) was a passable high-end Android power capacity.
All said, though the Sylo 2's mix of pros and cons is nothing new relative to its release date, a couple of its specs might attract more than a few mid-end phablet shoppers.
On-paper Review rating:
Not only does it have a 1.2GHz processor clock speed, it also features 4 CPU cores.

We are talking about an above-average screen, making it a phablet: 5.7 inches and a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixels means about 13.87 square inches and an image sharpness of at least 257.55 dots per inch (DPI)!

It includes a high-megapixel camera (13-megapixel)
The selfie cam resolution seems just about average.
The LG Stylo 2 can record high-resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels) videos. Bravo! But we couldn't determine whether it had an HDMI port or not. Granted, HDMI (which lets you connect to your HDTV), is not an absolute necessity, but it seems like a desirable feature on an HD phone.
