Lg Stylo 3: first shot

Hello fellow Boosters/ Lg owners.

I will start by saying, the Stylo 3 is definitely geared towards a professional or a student as many of it's options and apps pull you to using the stylus and this makes perfect sense, heck it's in the name of the handset. This is all to say, some phones have an evolutionary directive in line with business and presentations, assignments,etc. and others have a course plotted to entertainment.
With implements such as PowerPoint and two apps open at one time the Stylo 3 is obviously a great tool for writing and or copying papers and sending them to professors or bosses prospective employers and the like. At the same time with my last daily driver being the luxuriously large Warp Elite I can't help but notice differences like higher volume with the ZTE Warp Elite and also built in Dolby digital. That handset was obviously built for entertainment and "showiness" I know, I know it's not a word but it was fun to use it.
Back to the matter at hand or handset. The Stylo 3 in keeping with the Stylo series is also very thin and thusly suited to be "suited", in other words this is going to fit very nicely into your suit pocket with little to no notice unlike a model with a heavier build quality like a Galaxy note or ZTE Warp Elite
I will maintain opinion that the Stylo 3 does feel like like a device more at home in a board room than in at a pretty on shelf streaming music.
But alas Boosters this is my first look and I am still getting used to and discovering all the features on the Stylo 3 because the folks at LG really packed em in. I will post more as I become more acclimated with the device. Please let me know if you have any questions or tips and we can trade off, cool?

Hello. I am curious to know what is some of the things about the stylo 3 that most users don't realize it does? As well as some of your favorite stylo 3 only apps you enjoy most?

I've had the Stylo2 for over a year and have never had any problems with the phone.

 

The problem I'm having is with Boost service. This is the second time in the last month that I can't make any calls.

 

As far as mirroring, I use my Stylo 2 all the time with my Roku to watch YouTube videos on my TV.  Recently, I've started seeing the same Chromecast feature being offered through some of my apps, like Skillshare. Mind you, I have a Roku, not Google Chromecast.

 

What can the Stylo3 do that the Stylo2 can't?

I am unable to get the LG Stylo3's wifi hotspot to start up.  It goes through the process, appears to be on, is even discovered by my other devices. Yet I cannot log into the hotspot from other devices. Have not had this issue with my ZTE phones in my family plan.  I have chatted with boost mobile representatives, went through a series of update commands.  It still does not work at all.

On our family plan I pay a great deal of money for each of us to have our own phone with internet and hotspot capabilities.  I hope I can find the answer to this problem here. 

 

One thing is for sure, in the future I will stick with my ZTE phones.  🙂

What up Ms. Bellvue, I wish I could help with your issue with your WiFi issue but I've not encountered that problem. I have used my hotspot on my Stylo 3 but not at length and when I did things seemed to work fine. I'm sure you have every update based on your post, but how about going to LG's website and making a little stink just to see what you can stir up and you tube of course.

I'll take a look around myself and see what I can dig up. Well get there but umm ya know you can't go wrong with ZTE...just sayin! See ya on the flip side.

P.S. thank you for posting!

I was SOOO excited to be getting my new Stylo 3. I did a little bit of research- comparing specs on the Stylo 3 vs quite a few of the other phones Boost offers at this time. The most important feature on any phone, for me, is the camera. I can overlook alot of flaws in a phone if the camera is satisfactory. During my research, I read numerous reviews boasting on the Stylo 3's camera. I even asked the sales associate at the Boost store which phone had the better camera out of the 4 phones I had narrowed it down to: Stylo 3, XCharge, Tribute Dynasty, & Moto E4. Oh, & also the E5 Play. She said Stylo 3 has the best camera. So, at this point, I'm sold on it.

>Over-excitement kicks in. 

>>Very soon after, disappointment kicks in. 

I'm not sure if I just have a different idea of what a quality, "good" camera is, but this Stylo 3's camera is neither "good" or "quality." I'm actually curious as to what Boost's Return/Exchange policy is for in-store purchases & transactions....

Wouldn't mind trading it out for another E4. Should have went with Moto in the first place....every phone I've had that had GREAT cameras, was a Moto.

So mistakenly decided to use the "change ur number" feature and for some reason my brand new Stylo 3 would not valadtate to Boosts Network making my phone not able to call or do anything. I've done everything I could do including loose all my files from restarting the phone. I pushed the #7720 whatever, i updated the ppl or profile i did ever **bleep** thjng in the book including doing the running man while holding the phone between my butt cheecks. i emailed, called, snail mailed every agent I coupd, posted, blogged, been transfered to everyone and their Mama's just to get the same excuse boosts coorperate managers trains the lil minons to say. "Oh...there's an outage and we'll get back to you when it's fixed. Bull**bleep**. It's been a month and I pretty much paid a month for my phone to be used apaper weight mind u I just paid 130 a couple months ago and paid 50  For nothing. These guys transfered to LG acting like the device wasnt good but the Lg tech told me in the the first 5 mins that it was a boost network issue. I have been with boost since the flip phone era and this is how they take care of their customers. Their loyal customers! Can't even give me a refund on the service I paid for. I remember getting my phone stolen and finding out that that person re activatd my stolen phone with a new number an hour later...I can go in and on so in conclusion. 1

I have always been a samsung fan. I was an avid note 4 user since the came outas they had the stylus, memory, size and camera ability? The lg stylo 3 i bought about 23 weeks ago and already cracked the screen tossing it on a dining table with a set of keys. Im not sure of its abilities to compute as fasy or not but i do like the finger print scanner on the back. I dont quite get the apn settings being locked and not selected at the same time. Im stil a samsung preferred user but seriously only because i already know the systems. Howeve, i i will probably more than likely stick with the stylo 3 as it has many of the features i like without the price i cant afford.if money was no issue it' d be samsung it is an issue so now its lg
