Do people actually use stylus pens on smartphones today? Apparently, people still do so LG launched their new Stylo 4.
The successor of the Stylo 3 brings new upgrades on the table. The LG Stylo 4, the way we look at it, is actually geared towards creatives or people who actually like to draw or doodle. It’s also a budget alternative to the Galaxy Note 8 — which is one of the few devices today that has a stylus pen built-in.
Speaking of drawing, the LG Stylo 4 has a large 6.2-inch FHD+ display as the canvass. However, it’s only backed by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 octa-core processor with 2GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. This means that it’s not that powerful on the processing side, but that’s okay because it’s not the main highlight anyway.

Going back to the stylus pen, the LG Stylo 4 software comes equipped with a few tricks and features that will help fully utilize the included accessory. There’s the Screen Off memos so users can quickly write down notes or reminders. There’s also the GIF capture that turns videos into moving pictures.
