LG Stylo 3 Plus launching at T-Mobile today, MetroPCS in June

lgstylo3plustmo

Days after T-Mobile began updating the LG Stylo 2 Plus to Android 7.0, T-Mo has started sales of that phone’s successor.

The LG Stylo 3 Plus is now available from T-Mobile for $9 down and $9 per month for 24 months, or $225 total. You can also pay $0 down and $10 per month if you buy using JUMP! On Demand. The LG Stylo 3 Plus will launch at MetroPCS in June.

When it comes to specs, the LG Stylo 3 Plus runs Android 7.0 on a 5.7-inch 1920×1080 display. It’s got 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front cameras, 32GB of built-in storage, microSD slot, fingerprint reader, 2GB of RAM, and a Snapdragon 435 processor. There’s a 3080mAh battery powering the whole package.

Also included is a stylus along with special software features for the stylus. For example, Screen-Off Memo will let you pull out the stylus and start taking notes on the Stylo 3 Plus’s screen when the display is off.

For a quick preview of the LG Stylo 3 Plus in action, you can watch T-Mobile’s @askdes unboxing below.

    I like the fact they included JOD as an option here. All phones should be this way so people can downgrade to save money if they want.

    (I understand JOD was made for the higher end phones, but it would be a nice option for many without having to sign up for jump to upgrade early or having to pay their eip off.)

  • KOLIO

    MicroUSB ?
    WTH,clearing out the parts bin on this one LG?
    Overall,looks to be a decent phone that’s priced right,but seriously,MicroUSB?

  • Matt

    I think I will wait for the next iteration of the ZTE ZMAX.

  • ShadowFalls

    Every indication I saw was that it wasn’t getting 1080p screen which is good. A shame not 3GB of Ram, but is nice to have 32GB of storage. Unlike the Zte Zmax Pro, this will more likely get root too.

  • Nate

    Man, I wish they would’ve bumped the specs on this one. Would have been a great time to cash in on the folks wanting a galaxy Note like device and still have replaceable battery option.

    • douglas futrell

      What do you expect from a sub $250 phone, in all respects this is a really good deal for the price point, especially for a budget/mid tier device.

      • Nate

        For the price, it has what I would expect. I was more meaning I wish that LG would have taken the opportunity to make a flagship Stylo device. That would have been awesome to me.

        • douglas futrell

          Oh in that case then idk if I would agree to that, not because I wouldnt like the idea, but Sammy has had that market cornered since the Notes inception.
          I think if the Stylo did have a “pro” version or something to indicate that its far better and LG actually made an effort to advertise those devices other than the flagship G and V line we would see a place in the market for them.

        • Nate

          Sammy does have the market but they also took a hit in that market last year. It would have been awesome if LG took advantage of that. But yeah, I hear what you are saying.

        • douglas futrell

          The only real spec bump that would have really helped this device is an increase of ram to 3 to 4GB, but that might have increased the price to be $250+ easily.

        • Andrew Addison

          Huh This is a Stylo Device Dude.

    • Andrew Addison

      This phone does come with a replaceable battery though. You mean to say that this phone needs to include both Galaxy Note like ways and replaceable battery option. This device has a removable battery. Sorry your statement confused me a little bit there Bud.

      • Nate

        I’m sorry. I was just thinking it was a Large phone with Stylus and removable battery and that it seemed like a missed opportunity for LG to have bumped the specs and snatched up a few Ex Note customers looking for a hardware refresh.

        • Andrew Addison

          lol It’s all cool my Dear Friend. The stylo is the same as the stylus. lol In other countries they call it stylus, but out here in USA it’s mainly called the Stylo. lol Hey this phone here does come with Android Nougat 7.0 operating system. Plus upgraded battery voltage, Full HD 1080p video/screening and band 66 spectrum technology.

        • Bklynman

          Agreed,if this phone had 3gig of ram,like my Note 3,i would get it,
          If I do get new phone it will unlock one.

  • riverhorse

    I already upgraded from G Stylo to something else already identical or better in all key areas to the Stylo 3.
    I was eagerly anticipating this v3, since I already maxed out the 32gb…but getting the Stylo 3 would be a step back… from smaller screen to even no USB C.
    And save for FM radio, there’s really nothing that could be labeled extra or substantially better. There’s not even IR, a pet feature of LG.

    • Andrew Addison

      I will still get this device due to full HD 1080p video quality/screening. Plus it comes with 32 gb of internet storage, 66 spectrum capabilities, upgraded battery voltages from 2900 amps to 3200 amp voltage. Don’t forget that this is not the LG Stylo 3, it’s the LG Stylo 3 Plus due to all the technology that T-Mobile-MetroPCS has going on for all of it’s customers there. The LG Stylo 3 is just a regular piece of crap that is mainly used with carriers like Sprint, Boost Mobile, AT&T and Cricket Wireless. Lol.

      • riverhorse

        You’re right. I meant from the upgraded phone after the Stylo.
        I would need to get the V20 for it to really be an upgrade(except for the size) … now @ $480 + the G pad. ..

        • Andrew Addison

          So you upgraded to the LG V20 is what you are telling me, correct?? You did it again you meant to say upgraded from the LG G Stylo to the LG V20 verses having to upgrade to anymore LG Stylos series.

  • el_perezo

    Is it for real that it has a 1080p display.? Cause the other models … boost and virgin have 720p.

    • Andrew Addison

      Yes it sure does Buddy. No lie. Full 1080p video/full screen quality on the phone there Bud.

      • el_perezo

        Thanks for the reply. What about dual band Wifi? I know the other models couldn’t connect to 5g Wifi.

        • Andrew Addison

          Huh? Never heard of the whole 5G wifi stuff as of yet. 5G network is not even active as yet.

        • DM725

          5ghz versus just 2.4ghz

        • Andrew Addison

          Oh you mean LTE Unlicensed Spectrum you mean?? LTE U.

        • el_perezo

          No I mean if you have a dual band router that has both 2.4ghz and 5.0 gud. I think when I tested the Stylo 3 from Boost it didn’t have a 5 ghz option.

        • Andrew Addison

          Well That is boost. LG Stylo 3 Plus is only for you to try out with T-Mobile-MetroPCS. LG Stylo 3 with Boost is way different from the LG Stylo 3 Plus with T-Mobile-MetroPCS.

        • PM

          Save your breath he doesn’t even know dual band wifi exists. Simpleton.

        • riverhorse

          All Stylos can, from the very first one, you just have to click / enable in the settings.

        • Andrew Addison

          What he is referring to is T-Mobile-MetroPCS LTE Unlicensed 5Ghz Spectrum.

        • riverhorse

          I think I misspoke… There’s option to Tether either way. ..

        • JL

          LG Stylo 3+ uses the Snapdragon 435, which is an SoC processor/modem,
          and has support for both 2.4 and 5 Ghz Wi-Fi bands. The Stylo 3 has the
          Snapdragon 427, which also has support for both bands. Not sure why your
          Boost Mobile LG Stylo 3 wouldn’t have support..

      • PM

        Annnnddd….every new high end phone has a 4K OLED display with a snapdragon 835
        soc. So in your world a Ford Escort is on par with a Porsche 911. Got it.

        • Andrew Addison

          Buh bye darling. Your story is invalid and non factual. I dont need your own true fact or opinion. Not in my world. I know so. You’re once again trying to prove a point, Because????? Why did you say such ridiculous statement as every new high end phone coming with 4k hd screening for? That was not on our topic to be talked about. We were specifically talking about Full HD 1080p video viewing verses 4k. Go somewhere.

  • Taloot B

    [Laughing] 2gb of ram add bloatware gtfooh

    • Spencer Walker

      Too be fair this isnt even mid range so I think it’s pretty good for the price definitely better stuff out there though

      • Andrew Addison

        Huh Not even midrange? Please do not say Low Range device. This is either considered as an high end device or midrange device. Come on now Brother you cannot be serious right now. It has higher specs than a low end device would have been. This phone is usually worth over 100 to 200 something dollars with T-Mobile-MetroPCS.

        • Spencer Walker

          200 dollars or less is high end now. Gimme whatever your high on brother

        • Andrew Addison

          200 dollars or less than 200 dollars is still considered a midrange to high end phone dude. Low end devices usually range from under 50 Dollars to 19 dollars now. Check your facts there my friend. It still can be considered a High End or Midrange device. I did say either High end or midrange. Pay close attention next time. At least back me up to saying, “You’re right, this right here is an actual midrange verses low end”. No need to give out false statements about it not being low end.

        • Spencer Walker

          Just a difference in opinion I see high end generally being 650 plus mid range being 350 or so and lower end being generally sub 200 and you see it differently. the only thing close to being a good value around 200 imo is the huawei honor 6x it’s about 230 unlocked

        • Andrew Addison

          You are not telling the truth. This phone is worth 100 to 200 something dollars, meaning yes this is worth of a phone to get, due to all the specs and internal storage, 1080 video, battery and faster charging it really has. So again this is still considered a midrange phone as a true fact. Have a nice Day now Buddy.

        • JL

          Actually, the Stylo 3 and 3+ are still classed as Low to Mid range phones, and that’s only because the hardware is slightly better then most low end phones in it’s price point.

          Not to say it’s not worth what it costs, but it is definitely not a mid to high end phone just because it has a few minor improvements over it’s predecessors. Mid to High would be like an Honor 8, One Plus 3T, LG G6 or something along those lines.

        • Andrew Addison

          I’m going to say it again The LG Stylo 3 Plus is still classified as a midrange phone verses a low ranged phone. What a pathetic idea of you to think that this phone is low range? How many cups of liquor did you have this morning there Buddy or perhaps last night? The LG Stylo 3 should not have been in the same sentence as LG Stylo 3 Plus. The LG Stylo 3 has lesser features and specs verses the LG Stylo 3 Plus(that is a phone only usuable with T-Mobile-MetroPCS Advanced LTE/Featurings within the network itself). Plus the LG Stylo 3 is known to be used with Sprint/Boost Mobile old broke down behind network. Lol Lol Why are you calling this phone lowrange verses leaving it be said as Midrange?? Lame statment and thought. Lol

        • PM

          Let me guess, a Samsung Galaxy S8 would make your head explode, right?

        • Andrew Addison

          Right? And why are you asking me this ridiculous question for Sir? No reason. lol Goodbye now Sweetie.

        • Spencer Walker

          Alright bye bye snowflake

        • Andrew Addison

          Bye Bye cough drop. Have a nice Dear Saturday.

        • PM

          Anything with a snapdragon 435 is a LOW END phone at best. Not even close to mid range and far far away from any high end flagship phone. Nothing false at all calling this low end.

        • Andrew Addison

          Not accurate. This is a midrange to high range phone. Dismissed.

        • Andrew Addison

          You are false my friend. This phone over here is not an low end phone regardless the processor. I believe that 200 to 300 something processors are considered high end to midrange, due to the phone costing 100 to 200 something dollars. Fact is this a Midrange and not an low end phone. State facts.

  • Colton Johnson

    Finally!! No more annoying buttons in the back!!! It’s about time LG did away with the back buttons!!!

    • Corey Jalette

      They still have the power button on the back along with the speaker back there.

      • Colton Johnson

        I can deal with the power button on the back. It is having to deal with the volume buttons on the back that I hate

        • Andrew Addison

          Same here. The volumes on the back were very annoying to me to deal with.

        • Rick A

          Bro…
          Use the pulldown menu to access volume​ on-screen.

          Also, if you didn’t know, a double tap on the screen wakes up the phone.

    • DM725

      The rear power button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner is what I miss the most about the V20 now that I have an S8. Cmon man!

  • Daniel Stanford

    actually picked this up yesterday. sold my iphone 7 and wanted to downgrade to something cheaper. no complaints here. for normal day to day stuff it has no issues. dont intend to game on it at all. screen is great. love the size. ill miss the speakers and camera on the iphone 7 for sure but its all good.

  • Zacamandapio

    Zmax Pro a bigger screen, solid device, works great and way cheaper.
    In my opinion, since the Stylo 2 Plus had similar specs this one should’ve been bumped up a bit more.

    • Andrew Addison

      Again your opinion was falsely written talking this device needed to be bumped up a little bit more. Please, it was bumped up a little bit more.

    • Justin Tyme

      Surprised no one mentioned this, The LG Stylo 3 Plus will also have the gyroscope sensor. Neither the LG Stylo 2 Plus, nor the Zmax Pro has the gyroscope.

  • DM725

    Good to know I can save over $20 a month on my JOD if I wanted to downgrade from the S8 at some point.

    • networkdood

      I did that with the Note7, going to the Stylo PLus 2 – real nice phone

      • Andrew Addison

        Huh?? You meant Lg Stylo 2 Plus or perhaps LG Stylo 3 Plus. You see the difference? I was a bit confused by your statement for a second there my friend. There’s no such thing as LG Stylo Plus 2 or I guess you meant as a meaning by the 2nd version to LG Stylo Pluses. lol

        • JL

          You have a lot of free time..

        • Andrew Addison

          Thank you I sure do sweetie. Happy Dear Saturday. Have a nice Day now. Bye Hun.

        • networkdood

          Yeah, Stylo 2 Plus

  • networkdood

    No mention of fast charging – which it is capable of…

  • Zacamandapio

    Zmax Pro screen is 1080P

    • Andrew Addison

      But you do realize that you were still a little wrong for saying that the LG Stylo 3 Plus had about the same specs as the LG Stylo 2 PLUS did. Plus again the LG Stylo 3 PLUS was able to have 1080p screening, plus an upgrade from thr 2900 mah battery to an 3081 mah battery, faster charging, expanded 32gb of internal storage. Lastly it comes with 66 aws spectrum frequency capabilities within T-Mobile-MetroPCS Nation network.

      • Zacamandapio

        I said similar, not the same.
        5.7″ screen, 2GB RAM, etc.
        I agree, it’s a good choice for budged conscious or a back-up phone. But in my opinion, LG could’ve done better.
        The great thing is choice which we have now, and a $9 a month EIP payment.

        • Andrew Addison

          Yes you said that, but you talked about specs could have been bumped up a little better. Your statement should not include similar. Instead what I see is nonsense at least a little bit. You could have said, “This LG Stylo 3 Plus has improved as far as specs and upgraded features, expanded internal storage, better battery that is now 3108 mah Battery, faster battery charge and the screen now including full HD 1080p video over LG Stylo 2 Plus(that has lesser internal storage, lesser HD view of video) is concerned, but I feel that I would much rather wait for something else better. Why say it could have been bumped up a little bit Better in your other paragraph for there Buddy? You made no sense to me at all whatsoever there Bud. Learn to state true facts verses having to tear down something that is at least a little bit better than a pervious item that you expect to have had lesser this or that sort of thing. I think and believe it to be a big upgrade from the LG Stylo 2 Plus and it having a better power button with finget print sensor with the power button now positioned right sides of the phone. Makes sense? Good.

        • Zacamandapio

          I said “In My Opinion” they could’ve done better. Did you not read “My Opinion” portion?
          You have yours and I mine. If you disagree with my opinion then I’m sorry to hurt your feelings.

        • Andrew Addison

          Nope you sure did not say in your opinion. You still are incorrect. You tried stating it as a fact that it had about the same specs and not much improvements, knowing all of that to not have been truely stated. Like I says before state facts verses fictions. Thoroughly examine things before making your assumptions or talking about not improving, knowing LG in this situation did improve in their full HD 1080 video and screening, internal storage, the volume buttons no longer being listed on the back of the phone and of course 66 spectrum signal to use in other areas now. So again why talk a little nonsense on this particular device here? You are obviously not truthful with stating facts. Stop talking in circles with the stating opinions part, knowing you told a lie about it not improving much. My suggestion is to go with what I was telling you to say in the first place. Makes sense Bud? Good. Have yourself a nice Day now.

        • thepanttherlady

          He stated “In my opinion” in two different comments.

          “My suggestion is to go with what I was telling you to say in the first place.” LMFAO!

        • Zacamandapio

          LOL
          You go ANAHEIM!!!

        • thepanttherlady

          I’m a mountain dweller now. :)

        • Zacamandapio

          Where’s that?

        • thepanttherlady

          Crestline

        • Zacamandapio

          Ha ha..
          I’m not following you at all.
          I live in S.B. and I work here in Anaheim on East and 91.
          :P

        • thepanttherlady

          I still work in Costa Mesa.

          Sounds like I’m following you. =P I’ll wave hi on my up and down the mountain.

        • Zacamandapio

          HollyMoooolllyy.
          I thought I had it bad.

        • Andrew Addison

          Ah poor Dear you miss your friend? You might as well follow her since you are so desperate.

        • Andrew Addison

          Bye

        • Andrew Addison

          Okay? And??? Next please

        • Andrew Addison

          So what if he stated it as an opinion. He stated false facts without real truth is what I’m saying. Have a nice Day now darling.

  • AS118

    Nice that it seems to have a removable battery. Still too giant-sized of a phone for me, but at least it’s cheap and now has 1080p.

  • Michael Gossett

    I hope metropcs gets it too I had one briefly with boost and I liked it but boost wasn’t good in my area

    • Andrew Addison

      Did you not read the title and post? MetroPCS will, too get the LG Stylo 3 Plus soon.

      • Michael Gossett

        I was able to see it now looking forward to it I may skip iPhone lol

  • Michael Gossett

    Thank You metropcs for also getting it

  • Michael Gossett

    I read first week of June for metropcs I used briefly with boost mobile only bad thing was reception in my area and job other wisebit was good for me like a comment on here I dont game maybe YouTube here and there but I do have spotify for my music at work in back room so when it gets released I want it back my wife’s cousin has LG stylus2 but 3 will be better and gonna rub in her face lol

    • Andrew Addison

      Boost Mobile just has the regular LG Stylo 3 verses the more advanced LG Stylo 3 Plus that is only known to be sold and used with T-Mobile-MetroPCS. Boost Mobile has lesser internal storage memory than what T-Mobile-MetroPCS has. Plus Sprint/Boost Mobile does not have actual Advanced Messaging, Video Calling, Enhanced Voice Services, Advanced Wifi Calling, HD Voice, Voice over LTE services on their own network. So there you have it.

      • Michael Gossett

        Looks like I’m goin to a metropcs store on payday :)

        • Andrew Addison

          Oh cool that right there is awesome. So glad to hear that part there friend. Enjoy. :)

  • Andrew Addison

    Dish what sweets? I have nothing to take okay? What are you saying? Like I says before your homeboy gave out false facts. No opinion about it being the same as him talking about the LG Stylo 3 Plus is about the same as the LG Stylo 2 Plus and him talking the LG Stylo 3 PLUS didn’t receive much bump in upgrades and updates, and him saying some specs could have been bumped up a little bit more. Again false facts. Tell your boyfriend to tell the truth about what he failed to state as fact verses fairy tales. Anything else? More time wasted on your part there. Next please.

    • thepanttherlady

      ” Again false facts.”

      You continue to try and call others out by claiming they’re posting false fact but don’t seem to follow the same set of “rules” yourself. LOL

      • Andrew Addison

        State False facts. Learn to read. Your attacks are weak and false. Drink some water. Thanks.

        • thepanttherlady

          I drank a liter of water. Now what?

      • Andrew Addison

        Sorry, but my statements are factual while others like yours are false and you not being able to read is total out of whack styles. Again you obviously have trouble reading. Your lousy friend is the one that is telling a lie about how this phone here did not improve. He did lie about the phone not improving, knowing him to have failed to tell the truth about how this phone increased to being 32 internal storage memory, HD 1080p video view with carrier 66 spectrum. Please go somewhere.

        • thepanttherlady

          “Sorry, but my statements are factual while others like yours are false”

          Which statement did I make that was false?

        • Andrew Addison

          Liar liar liar. You failed to tell the truth about him being wrong with him saying his lousy behind comment about this particular phone here having about the same specs as the other phone did. Lies. Get out of here with your lies and non factual statements. Like I said again learn to freaking read thoroughly. Obviously you are dumb and pathetic as heck.

        • thepanttherlady

          I’ll be back when you have actually answered my question.

        • Andrew Addison

          Case is done. I’m dropping it. Goodbye now.

        • Andrew Addison

          Do you have trouble reading or something? Because I keep on repeating that your dumb friend fails to tell the truth. Again you are just as pathetic as your dumb behind friend is.

        • thepanttherlady

          It’s rather unhealthy how unraveled you become when someone comments to you. You’ve done this time and time again. Take a deep breath, it’ll be ok.

  • PM

    I got this phone on Sunday to use on a second line. Phone is capable, screen is good, everything flows as it should. It has all the latest T-Mobile features built in, but so will every new phone T-Mobile sells shortly. Is it a high end flagship phone like some say on here?

    Answer is no, it’s a capable $200 phone that works pretty well and that’s it.
    If you want something for $9 a month or $225 cash price then you won’t be disappointed,
    you want something great you’ll need to spend quite a bit more.

  • Johntavious Johnson

    Just get a moto g4… Much better phone!!

  • tendoboy1984

    It also has NFC for Android Pay! Hard to find that on budget phones.

  • And it doesn’t even have Android 7.1, so it’s basically outdated at release. What’s wrong with manufacturers these days?
