Mother's Day is just around the corner and if you're still looking for a gift to give your mom, it may be time to get her the new LG Stylo 2.

Cricket Wireless is currently offering the LG Stylo 2 for only $169.99. In line with its Mother's Day celebration, Cricket Wireless will be selling the Stylo 2 smartphone on May 13. Instead of getting her flowers or chocolate, the Stylo 2 serves as an excellent gift so you can keep in touch with your mom.

The LG Stylo 2 comes with a large 5.7-inch HD IPS LCD display, which is the perfect device for watching videos and movies. It runs on 1.2 GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with the Adreno 306 GPU, 2GB of RAM and an internal storage capacity of 16GB. There is a microSD card slot for memory expansion of up to 128GB. The rear-facing camera has 13MP sensor while the front has a 5MP lens. Video recording comes with 1080p resolution. There is a removable Li-Ion 3,000 mAh battery available on the back of the device to help give power to it. Upon release, the Stylo 2 runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS.

The phone also comes with a built-in stylus with Pen Pop and Screen-off Memo features. What's great about this stylus pen is that it allows you to jot down your ideas on your screen even if it is turned off. The Stylo 2 is also advisable for those who love to multitask since it comes with the Stylo 2 Dual Window, which splits the screen into two so that it is easier to manage two apps at one time.

Apart from the LG Stylo 2, Cricket Wireless is also offering a $50 bill credit (with an additional $50 bill credit for those who switch from T-Mobile) to customers who decide to switch to their network. If you're considering getting a new phone for your mom, you might want to consider the LG Stylo 2.

    1. Sadly, no. Metro's is just the LG G Stylo 1 which runs lollipop.

    2. What's wrong with Marshmallow?

  2. I saw some new deals from HOFO, the phone price will reduce around May 19. iPhone 5s will reduce $150 etc.

  3. T-Mobile still wants $450 for the 5s.

    1. They have a code that drops the 32gb 5s to $399.

    2. Yes, the promo code is SAVE100. You can use that, and then get another $200 off any iPad. He often complains about high Tmo phone prices, but looks the other way when promos are good, like the $29.99 Galaxy Core Prime.

  4. Decent phone but they should've been selling these specs a year ago. I expect SD615 chips in low end phones now, the 410 is dated.

    1. You will be expecting for another year or so.

  5. Good, we need more affordable 2GB/16GB Android phones with Mardsmallow. I don't care for the location buttons on the back and the size to big for me though.

    1. Unfortunately a lot of stores charge fees or force you onto more expensive plans if you want a discounted phone. I avoid Boost stores at all costs because there is no managerial accountability (same with MetroPCS independent dealers). At least Cricket standardizes their costs upfront.

  7. The original G Stylo had nearly identical specs and Cricket sold it for $50. $150 is too much for an entry level phone especially when combined with the $25 activation fee.

    1. I doubt that is it will be $169.99 for long. There will soon be promos offrering it for $100 or less.

    the 2 GB Ram is what makes this phone better than the one at Boost

  9. Cricket's offering a bunch of other deals as well.

    The $1 Spree, $20 626s, $40 Grand X 3 and $50 Idol 3 are great phones at those prices, especially if you snag $75-$125 in port-in and referral bonuses as well.

    The speeds may be throttled, but it's a fair trade off for the deals, coverage, free unlocks and data allotments.

    Their group plans are also extremely competitive.

    They don't have the whole "in-store only" stipulation that Metro usually tacks on to some of their best promos, nor do they limit minutes like the Walmart plan.

    And because it's a GSM carrier, their BYOD is less restrictive than Sprint or Verizon.

    Definitely worth a try, if only because you can take your device to T-mo or an MVNO if you're not satisfied.

  10. Will this LG Stylo 2 model have the Adoptive Storage feature of
    Android 6.0 Marshmallow OS or how to find out?
    Thanks 4 your time

    1. LG probably disabled adoptable storage. They did on other Marshmallow phones like the G5 and Boost G Stylo.

      There's supposed to be a way to enable it with a few ADB commands on other Marshmallow phones. Here's a guide for the S7: Here's how to configure adoptable storage on your S7 / S7 Edge - Android - MoDaCo

    2. Can anyone confirm that this works on the Stylo 2?

  11. Where do you find $125 port in credits?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. There's no $125 port in credit. There's a $100 port-in credit for porting from T-Mobile or a $50 credit for porting from any other carrier except AT&T. See the cricket homepage for the $50 credit details and this press release announcing the $100 one.

      Delete
    2. There's also a $25 referral bonus, which means new port-ins can get up to $125 back (plus an additional instant discount on various phones).

      Unfortunately, if you don't already have a T-mobile number and can't be bothered to jump through hoops to get one, the bonus is considerably less.

      Still worth it, though, providing you value better coverage and unlimited minutes more than unthrottled data, or if you jump from one Wifi hotspot to another.
