Unfortunately, it really falters on the performance front, with a low-end processor that drags the entire experience down. If you’re shopping for an affordable phone with a stylus, we recommend spending a bit more on the Moto G Stylus ($299.99).
DESIGN, DISPLAY, AND DURABILITY
The LG Stylo 6 looks nothing like its predecessor, which is a good thing. Instead, it features an updated design that’s so sleek, it can easily be mistaken for a flagship.
Measuring 6.74 by 3.06 by 0.34 inches (HWD) and weighing 7.73 ounces, the Stylo 6 is a big phone. Its weight is well distributed, making it easy to hold for long stretches of time, but people with small hands might find it a little cumbersome.
The front of the phone is dominated by a 6.8-inch display with a teardrop notch for the selfie camera. The bezels are on the thick side, but not overly so. The resolution comes in at 1,920 by 1,080, for a density of 344 pixels per inch. It looks crisp, has excellent color accuracy, and is bright enough to use in direct sunlight. It isn’t quite as sharp as the Moto G Power’s screen (399 pixels per inch), but you can’t really see the difference with the naked eye.
The back of the phone is constructed of reflective white glass, and though it easily shows fingerprints, it looks so chic that we’re willing to give it a pass. At the top is a horizontal camera arrangement above a responsive fingerprint sensor. A monochromatic LG logo sits at the bottom.
LG Stylo 6
PROS Excellent stylus. Sharp display. Attractive design. Good battery life.
CONS Poor performance. Mediocre cameras.
BOTTOM LINE There’s a lot to like about the affordable, stylus equipped LG Stylo 6, but the phone falls short on performance.
