5What better phone will you get for $150?
By Need 4 Speed
Better than any comparable phone at this price point. I've been a long time android buyer and bought LG phones since the flip phones. I also had an LG Volt, Samsung Galaxy J7 2015, and the old trooper HTC Desire 816. Much prefer this over the Samsung Galaxy J7 2015, or the new one. You get much more for the money. Has great battery life, you can get two days on one charge easily. It's fast, well-optimized, and good at doing 3 things at once. It has Android 7 Nougat, the latest version. It has Google Assistant, so you always can ask her to tell you cheesy jokes, or that you broke up with your whatever and you're feeling lonely, etc. Reception is great and I always have LTE as this phone has all the latest cell bands and the new LTE Plus, and it comes with voice and data roaming in case you're in the middle of nowhere that doesn't have Sprint reception. It has a very bright, very clear screen even if it's just 720p. The fingerprint sensor is great, but if it's been sitting in your pocket for an hour, it might take an extra second for it to figure out your finger. The auto-brightness on this phone is a bit on the conservative side, and I've always found the auto brightness keeps the phone a touch too dark for me personally. It's very eager to set the phone screen brightness to 0 percent as soon as possible. The phone does not have NFC. I never used it, but I'm sure some folks did. I like how you can rearrange the on screen keys at the bottom. I also like the "comfort mode" on this phone which warms the screen temperature to have a bit of a yellow or orange tint, over the normal blue light coming out of it; it is there to keep blue light from coming out of the phone in place for orange-ish light coming out of the phone and is nice to use at night brightness settings. The stylus is fun to play with sometimes too. It even has that new split screen view where you can have two apps on the screen at once. The phone is large with a 5.7 inch screen, and I love it. For comparison, the Samsung Galaxy Note 7 had a 5.7 inch screen. The iPhone 7 Plus has a 5.5 inch screen. The LG V20 has a 5.7 inch screen. The Samsung S7 edge had a 5.5 inch screen.

Improvements over the Stylo 2 include an Octa-Core processor, versus the Stylo 2's Quad-Core. The camera sensors are better on this one versus that one so pictures are a bit better although the mega pixels have not changed; this phone comes with HDR, panorama mode, and steady recording for videos. The Stylo 3 has a fingerprint sensor which is nice. The RAM and internal memory (2GB Ram, 16GB internal storage, about 9GB usable after disabling and uninstalling the bloatware apps) is unchanged from the Virgin Mobile Stylo 2 to this Stylo 3. The Stylo 3 screen has a different tuning than the Stylo 3, and tries to look a bit more like an AMOLED display; this phone has darker blacks and more popful colors than the Stylo 2; I believe the screen temperature is just warmer on this one. The build is different than the Stylo 2, and has the screen glass resting inside the phone frame, rather than on top of the phone frame on the Stylo 2. The volume buttons have been moved to the top left of the phone, leaving only the fingerprint sensor/power button on the back. The battery in this phone is 3200mah, and is using the same battery as the LG V20 this time, versus the 3000mah battery in the Lg Stylo 2. This phone also has the latest cell tower bands versus the LG Stylo 2. The Stylus itself is much more like a pen on the Stylo 3 than the Stylo 2's as well. This phone also has a gyroscope! So you can watch those fancy 3-D videos on YouTube by turning your phone every which way.

If I have a Stylo 2, I don't think I'd pay $150 to upgrade to this; I'd definitely pay $100, but not $150. But if you have the Stylo 1, or even worse, no Stylo at all, this will feel every bit of the $150 you paid for it. It's fast, and running the same android version as these 900 dollar flagships, and it's a very speedy phone. I'd recommend a case and screen protector as usual, and I recommend the new model Samsung EVO Select (U3) micro SD card to go with this phone for all your photos, music, and other items. MAKE SURE YOU GET THE U3 NEW MODEL! It's a very very fast micro SD card. Leave the internal storage for all of your apps, and put your media on that SD card. You should never have problems running out of space if you do this. You can buy a micro SD up to 2TB with this phone so it's heavily future-proofed. The phone has a removable battery and micro SD card slot, obviously. The whole point of the micro SD slot is so that you can add the space suitable for your needs. I've had no issues with this phone freezing, or locking up, or restarting, or any of that nonsense.

HOW TO UNINSTALL BLOATWARE AND MAXIMIZE INTERNAL STORAGE:
Once you activate the phone, Virgin auto installs their carrier bloat as usual. Go to Settings, then go to Apps. Start off by uninstalling all the apps that the phone lets you uninstall. After that, now I'll tell you about how to handle the apps that you cannot uninstall. For example, the app "Amazon Kindle" cannot be uninstalled, so instead you follow this process: First, uninstall updates for the app. Then disable the app. AFTER disabling the app, scroll down and press clear data. The app will stay in the list, but the app is disabled, won't run in the background the phone, won't show up in the app drawer, and best of all, will only us about 40 kilobytes of space, which is basically nothing at all. Repeat this process for any apps that you cannot fully uninstall. After doing this for all the apps I didn't use I had easily almost 9GB of free space to install apps that I actually used. After putting my standard load of apps on the phone I still have over 6GB of space for apps. Like I said, just make sure music and photos go on an SD card and you will have no issues with space.

I recommend Mr. Shield screen protectors, because they have the best warranty, and are the most helpful for me. The other items like the SD card I recommended, various Mr. Shield screen protectors and some long charging cables I'll also link to:

5You need this phone.
By J. Brown
Love your phone. This has some very cool features that I don't see on some of the higher priced phones. For example I can either type speak or write with my finger or the stylus in texting or any other application. It has smart applications that are easily used by even the newest people to the smartphone industry. I can easily block unwanted calls text take pictures take screenshots this is probably the most first a wonderful phone that you will find and I'll put it up against the newer phones any day. Takes great photos with true to life colors. Video is awesome to.

5Skeptical, BUT SO WORTH IT
By Jasper Rae
So I've had all three Stylo's how and this one knocks the other two out of the park. The Stylo 2 is a great phone, don't get me wrong, but this phone is obscenely fast. Granted I've only ever owned Virgin Mobile prepaid phones, this is still the best one I've ever had. I was skeptical about buying this because of no reviews, and never hearing of the company before but I'm so glad I took the chance. I couldn't be more pleased with my purchase and the phone arrived a lot faster than I thought it would.

If you don't have much money and you want a decent phone, go with the Stylo 2. If you have a little extra to spend and want something with a little more speed, the Stylo 3 is the way to go.

I'll definitely purchase my next cell phone through this company.
