Display

Unlike LG Stylo 3, it comes with a 6.2-inch larger display. In terms of display technology, the manufacturer has changed the IPS panel of the Stylo 3 Plus and integrated a thin-film TFT-LCD panel on the new Stylo 4 phones. One reason for this is to introduce the FullVision technology that enables colors more vibrant and sharp. And these panels are cheap comparing with IPS LCD’s.

The new LG Stylo 4 comes with a flagship alike Full HD+ resolution of 2160x1080 pixels and 18:9 aspect ratio. The new aspect ratio can also be seen on the Korean high-end LG V35 ThinQ phones.

Performance

The new Stylo 4 is powered by a Snapdragon 450 system on the chip. It is one of the more advanced processor chips of the recent times. And you will experience a faster speed, as it uses a 1.8Ghz frequency. The RAM is a serious issue here because users were assuming an upgrade in this department. But LG didn’t improve the Stylo 3’s 2GB RAM in its upcoming model.

Cameras

Coming to the camera department, there is a 13MP camera sensor on the rear side with phase detection autofocus (PDAF) lens, Portrait mode, and an LED flash. Not only this, there is a 5MP camera sensor with a wide-angle lens for taking outstanding selfies. This mobile phone also includes Q lens integration to provide suggestions and information. In addition, Real Moment technology is being introduced to let users share their edits conveniently and ideas by writing over a captured photograph.

Battery

LG increases the battery capacity in the new Stylo 4 device. It has 3300mAh large battery with some productive features. It is backed by USB Type-C charging feature, so you will get faster charging as compared to micro-USB charging. The battery saving/power saving mode also returns in the upgraded version, so you can always use it if you find your battery in dark shell.

Software

The Stylo 4 phone runs on Google’s Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box and LG’s own UX 7.0 user interface on the top of the device. The LG stylus pen also returns here, upgraded and arguably better than its predecessors.
