The state of smartphones 2020
So, if you’ve been keeping up with the smartphone market, you’ve no doubt noticed that smartphones have become kinda… well, pricey. There’s Apple with its new line of iPhone Pro Max, which is over one thousand dollars, for example. But, you know, that’s Apple, right? They’re always too expensive.
But high-end Android phones are starting to get up there in price as well. The Note 9, the flagship of Samsung’s smartphone lineup also starts at a thousand bucks ($999.00 technically).
Now maybe I’m just cheap, but I can think of a lot of better things to spend $1000 on than a smartphone that’s only marginally faster than last year’s model. I mean, do you know how many donuts I can buy with a thousand smackers? Me neither, but it would sure be fun to find out.
Enter the LG Stylo Plus
Which brings me to the star of today’s article, the LG Stylo Plus. A defiantly mid-range smartphone that will NOT run you a thousand dollars, unless you bought, like five of them, because they’re currently $159.00 right here at TextNow.
So the real question here: Is a Samsung Note 9 actually so much better to justify it being 528% more expensive?
Well, no. Not in my opinion. Now don’t get me wrong, the Note 9 is a great phone. And some people really love Samsung’s design and software.
But I think the LG Stylo Plus will surprise you. It’s got a solid build quality that belies its shockingly affordable price, with a surprisingly good 16MP camera on the back, and a nice, big 6.2 inch screen, perfect for taking your next photographic masterpiece.
Plus, like the Note 9, the LG Stylo Plus comes with a stylus (hence “Stylo”), just like the Note 9, which makes jotting down notes and other actions super easy. (Especially if you hate touchscreen keyboards like I do.) And, for you music lovers out there, the LG Stylo Plus still retains a headphone jack, so you don’t have to fumble with bluetooth headsets. It’s literally, plug and play.
I’d suggest the first thing you should jot down on the LG Stylo Plus is a list of all the things you’ll buy with the eight hundred dollars you just saved! Besides the donuts, of course.
