Pros&Cons: LG Stylus 2 Plus

LG had announced Stylus 2 plus last month globally. LG has now officially launched it in India with a price tag of Rs 24,450.


  1. LG Stylus 2 Plus has 16 megapixel pixel camera which promises pictures of exceptional quality. The front camera of 8 megapixel is a selfie delight.
  2. The phone is powered by 1.4GHz Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor which is a beast of burden. Feel free to load in latest games , download stuff , multitask - this phone is not getting tired.
  3. What complements the above remark is its RAM. 3GB RAM should be able to take care of all the app demands. This is one of the highest RAM configuration a device currently has.

  1. The phone currently runs on Android Marshmallow. However the question would be how early (if any)  future updates will be available for this device.
  2. LG Stylus 2 Plus is a large phone having display of 5.7 inches. There is a stylus in addition to the display. The battery of 3000mAH would be just average for this device. LG could have done a better here.
  3. LG Stylus 2 Plus uses a IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen which is less vibrant as compared to super AMOLED display.
  4. The phone has an internal storage of 16GB. We would have expected it to be at least 32GB given the other configuration it provides.

General Observation & Verdict  

A good buy for price tag less 25000/- INR. It competes directly with Samsung, Motorola, Xiaomi and Micromax. If you are looking for power pack at affordable price - you can surely go this phone.
