LG Q Stylus Pros & Cons Review

Picture of the LG Q Stylus, by LG

- Analysis by KJ David

Designed for users who prefer notes and scribbles over typing, at least on certain occasions, the stylus-equipped LG Q Stylus is a wide-screen Android for multimedia and productivity. Despite its size reminding us of the best phablets on the market, however, we still caught a couple of questionable cons.

Its biggest letdown is the fact that it sports a modest 8-megapixel front camera (or a 5-megapixel one, depending on the model) amidst the rapidly-growing (as of this on-paper review) number of semi-high-end smartphones with at least 13-megapixel selfie cams. Moreover, although its 3300mAh battery capacity does not sound that disappointing, considering the rest of its features, we're not ready to call it a pro just yet, knowing that several tantamount models boast as high as 4000mAh's worth of raw power.

Its most-defining feature is its LG Stylus accessory , mainly for handwritten input, which gives it a slight edge versus other productivity-oriented phablets. It can also be used to personalize images and videos, while a palm rejection system prevents the phone from acting up when your palm sits on the screen.

Speaking of its screen, the Q Stylus sports a sizable 6.2-inch interface with an 18:9 aspect ratio and a 2160 x 1080 FHD+ resolution. Its multimedia pros and cons are also joined by the DTS:X Surround Sound audio technology , a close competitor to the Dolby Atmos audio systems featured by several tantamount models.

The Q Stylus variant with the highest specs configuration, known as the Q Stylus+, is rigged with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of memory expandable by a whopping 2TB -- the other variants come with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of native storage. Regrettably, it fails to level with the best octa-core phones around, opting for a 1.8GHz octa-core engine , instead of going for one that passes the 2GHz threshold.

Sitting opposite its middling selfie cam, which we mentioned earlier, is a 16-megapixel PDAF-equipped (phase-detection autofocus) primary camera that safely passed high-end benchmarks as of this Phonerated analysis. It is accompanied by QLens , a visual search tool that lets users search details about items of interest by snapping a photo of them.

Joining the mix is the Q Stylus's metallic housing, which passes IP68 and MIL-STD-810G certifications, for things like waterproofing and shock-resistance -- discover the best rugged phones here.

So, with the kind of pros and cons that it brings to the table, the Q Stylus suits users looking for a creativity- and multimedia-centered phablet.
