The mobile has a good battery which lasted around a day easily, however the battery life depends on how heavy user you are. This has a 5.7 inch HD IPS touchscreen, this does have auto brightness and it does get bright and visibility is good outdoors and had no problems or issues seeing the display when I am in direct sunlight. It got some of the best features such as the video calling option that you get on the dialer. Out of 16GB, 10.7GB free space is available and out of RAM 3GB RAM, 1.5GB free space is available.
Coming to the display quality, it is good overall and got good viewing angles and good color reproduction. The multi-tasking experience is also good. The web browsing is good and takes less loading time. The UI feels pretty smooth. The color level and the contrast levels are good. Reading will be comfortable.
Coming to the gaming we ran mortal combat 5 and again the experience is pretty smooth. The device doesn’t overheat which is good. The audio output from the headphone jack as well as a loudspeaker is good as well, which gives an immersive feeling.
The camera UI is simple. Talking about the camera quality, the rear camera does a pretty good job. The pictures turn out to be pretty good as well. And the front camera does a pretty good job.
When it comes to video recording, the device does a pretty good job and the stabilization is good. Coming to the pricing point the device does a good job and the performance is immense.
Coming to the pricing the device feels slightly. Of course, it got the best features and amazing UI. The device is missing some of the latest features such as fingerprint sensor, flash screen in India. And the stylus is like old school despite works fine with me. Maybe at this price point, I expect it to be more innovative rather than the best old school. LG STYLUS 2 PLUS is available around at a price of Rs 18,000/-
