Underpowered LG G4 Stylus Gets A Ridiculous Price Tag In India


Like many other phone makers, LG too is fond of using the brand image of its flagship phones to sell mid-range phones. Mid-range aren’t necessarily bad but the price tag they carry vs. their specifications a.k.a. value of money factor decides their fate.

LG-G4-Stylus

The LG G4 Stylus is one such phone that tries to take the advantage of its similarity with the flagship G4. To put it simply, G4 Stylus has the hardware otherwise found on any sub $150 phones. Actually, $150 phones have  much better hardware than this. The only thing that would set it apart is the stylus and laser autofocus for the camera. But, the price tag on this one is ridiculously high, $392 or Rs.24,990, in India.

If the stylus is all you want, you can pick up Samsung Note 3 Neo, which is around Rs.5k or $78 cheaper. Its display is slightly smaller at 5.5 inch, has 8MP camera and most importantly it runs the ancient Android Jellybean. 

Anyways, here are LG G4 Stylus specifications for those interested:

  • Snapdragon 400 1.2GHz quad-core
  • 1GB RAM, 16GB internal storage
  • 5.7 inch display plus stylus
  • 13MP camera with laser AF, 5MP front camera
  • Dual SIM, 4G LTE
  • 3000 mAh battery

But, would you pay for this (over-priced) G4 Stylus?
