If you have been watching from afar the painfully expensive Samsung Galaxy Note family, you don’t have to go without a stylus just because you want a smartphone that’s more realistically priced. The new LG Stylo 5x continues LG’s series of stylus-packed smartphones, and it does so at a price that is almost a tenth of the cost of the most expensive model Samsung has to sell.
The LG Stylo 5X offers a 6.2 “display for the sort of scale you can expect from a device, giving you plenty of room to draw, doodle, color in the coloring book, or scribble out a few notes using the built-in stylus. This display is also bright with a resolution of 2,160x 1,080, bumping slightly above Full HD. The extra bit of vertical screen space will give you more scope for wider formats man.
And, thanks to a 3,500mAh pack, you’ll be able to watch the device the entire day. That would be enough battery life for most people to make it across the day without wondering whether you’ll be able to find somewhere to power up. And, if your battery gets low, you can easily recover it using Fast Charge 3.0 using the USB-C port on your computer.
The LG Stylo 5x also features both a headset jack and the link to Bluetooth 5.0. Which means you can listen with your favorite wired headphones to music and movies, or enjoy a secure wireless link with Bluetooth earbuds. The right to pick your favorite link is often a bonus, and lately, it’s something that’s still missing on other higher expensive smartphones. Best still, you can allow DTS: X for surround sound if you are connected to wired headphones.

The handset isn’t too huge given the wide screen. It measures 6.34″x 3.09″x 0.34 “and it manages to maintain the slim due to an 80 percent screen-to-body ratio. This means there isn’t a lot of wasted room on the front of the handset. It also leaves it small at just 181 grams–marginally lighter than an iPhone 11. The LG Stylo 5x is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor with 3 GB of RAM, allowing it enough of capacity to handle.
Best of all, the new LG Stylo 5x has launched at the same price as its predecessor, the LG Stylo 5. You can even get the LG Stylo 5x at a discount right now from Boost Mobile.
