LG Stylo 2 Plus lands at MetroPCS with $149 price tag

MetroPCS announced back in June that the LG Stylo 2 Plus would be coming to its network, but it didn’t say when that launch would happen. Now we know, because the Stylo 2 Plus has quietly appeared on MetroPCS’s website.

The LG Stylo 2 Plus is available from MetroPCS for $149 after a $70 mail-in rebate. For that price, you’re getting an Android 6.0 smartphone with a 5.7-inch 1280×720 display, 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, and a fingerprint reader on its backside. Packed inside the Stylo 2 Plus’s shell is 16GB of storage (9GB available to the user), a microSD card slot, 2GB of RAM, an octa-core processor, and a 2900mAh battery.

Of course, one of the most notable features of the LG Stylo 2 Plus is its stylus. The pen lives in a slot at the top of the Stylo 2 Plus’s body, and LG has built special software features into the device to help you take advantage of that stylus. For example, Calligraphy Pen Mode will transform your writing into script, and Screen-Off Memo will let you jot down notes on the phone’s screen when the display is turned off.

While the LG Stylo 2 Plus may not be a barn burner when it comes to specs, it does offer notable features like a huge display, built-in stylus, fingerprint reader, and microSD slot, all for an affordable price. Huge phones like the Stylo 2 Plus aren’t everybody’s thing, but if you dig ‘em, you’ve now got another option at MetroPCS.

    It’s been in stores one month… since 6/14(the Friday before the announced 6/17).
    It’s disappointing. The only significant upgrades from initial Stylo are resolution, fingerprint reader, and some component firmware.
    You can’t even count Marshmallow because that upgrade already arrived to original Stylo.
    The model version we didn’t get… with the 3+32gb, FM, USB Host woulda been ideal.
    BOO!

    • riverhorse

      Another worthwhile change coulda been to replace capacitative buttons with physical ones further down. This way we’d get a true 5.75 inch screen… instead of actual 5.5.

      • riverhorse

        And I want a larger phone… 6/7/8″ no problem.

        • Matt

          ZMAX Pro will be 6″

        • riverhorse

          Ty sir. It’s lacking other stuff. Ideally something will come out that slightly tops it.
          Perfect world would be a larger Note 7 & a budget version of it.

          But ty for that… there’s hope…

        • Iamnumber6

          Any idea when the Zmax Pro will launch?

        • Matt

          Wish I knew ….

        • mikkej2k

          Asus Zenfone 3 Ultra. I think it’s 7 inches with mid-level specs.

        • riverhorse

          6.8″, it almost has every extra possible… yes, some stuff middling like you say, but it is almost everything possible… .
          The only thing missing:
          NFC.

        Actually, some apps on the LG G Stylo do use the entire 5.7″ and semi-transparently overlay the touch buttons over the content there. The main advantage of doing it this way is that you can choose what buttons go where and how many of them you want.

        For example, if you want the back button on the bottom right rather than the bottom left, you can easily set. But you wouldn’t be able to do that if the buttons were “pre-printed” and fixed.

        • riverhorse

          Totally agree on your first paragraph.
          Otherwise, I meant there’s leftover space below screen @ bottom for hard buttons / keys. The firmware could reassign… even totally disable + reenable capacitative.

          But at the end of the day, what I’m saying may not be realistic.

    • Jose Rodriguez

      The resolution is 720p, it’s not an upgrade. But the processor is definitely an upgrade and the fingerprint reader.

      • riverhorse

        I’d gladly trade processor n reader n firmware updates for just extra GB & USB Host…

  • Iamnumber6

    It is also out a Walmart as a Family Mobile phone. Specs don’t look different at all, except being a slight bit thinner and a finger print reader.

  • Available Online with Tmobile

    Update, it is available now on-line with T-mobile for $239.00 plus taxes….

  • Andrew Morel

    I feel like the Huawei Honor 5X has better specs for the money…

  • Artem Trabskiy

    What are the differences between Stylo and Stylo 2 besides the cameras, fingerprint reader, and processor?

    Thanks.

  • Cole

    If it has a Snapdragon 615-617 then yikes it’s dead on arrival.

  • mavricxx

    If only they had made it in 3gb RAM and 25+GB internal memory!
