LG, as a smartphone manufacturer, does not only have great flagship lineups but they also offer one of the most value for money mid-range lineup of phones. This is to meet the demands of their users that cannot afford a high end smartphone. The LG Stylus 3 that have been on sale for a while now, is an amazing mid-range phone coming from the brand. From massive display to a fingerprint scanner, the LG Stylus 3 ticks all the right boxes on the chart. This is post is just a general overview of the Stylus 3, revealing its specifications, price and pros and cons in its features.
LG Stylus 3 Features
Improve Pen Pop 2.0
The brand made a claim that while the stylus remains the same, the whole UI of the LG Stylus 3 was optimised a lot to enhance stylus experience. The highlight is the Pen Pop 2.0, which gives you an interactive menu to perform stylus oriented tasks when it is pulled out.
This feature is copied from that of Samsung Notebooks, but it actually comes in handy. By using this feature, you can pull out of the stylus in a locked device and commence writing on the turned off display like a notepad. This is a very handy feature from the LG Stylus 3 as it helps to keep notes and memos.
This is a mandated feature by the government of some countries (for example India), and it is very useful. The SOS mode can be activated by quickly pressing power button and the LG Stylus 3 will dial 112 by default.
The knock on is a proprietary LG feature, and it has been adopted by many other phone brands. This feature allows users to turn on their phone by simply tapping on the display twice, which is pretty convenient.
Dull Display Light
The LG Stylus 3 is very perfect for multimedia with its massive display, but however it has another downside. The display comes with a resolution of 1280 x 720 pixel, which when compared to the size of the 5.7inch , produces a pretty dull display with a pixel density of 248 ppi. Direct sunlight and usual visibility is slightly lower than usual. Apart from this, there is no other major disadvantage of the device.
