If you like pen-wielding smartphones but can’t afford a member of Samsung’s super-high-end Galaxy Note family and you’re also not a fan of the only two prepaid carriers on which the brand-new LG Stylo 5 is available so far, you could still consider last year’s mid-range Stylo 4.
For one thing, the substantially reduced $99.99 price point is valid only with upfront Sprint activation. You’ll also have to open a new account with that specific wireless service provider or add a new line to an existing account to score the full $200 discount. On the bright side, upgrading customers get a decent $150 markdown of their own, while those looking to activate the LG Stylo 4 on Verizon or AT&T need to cough up $199.99 straight off the bat.
It’s hard to say whether or not the Stylo 4 is a good deal at $200 (especially assuming its sequel will eventually be expanded to more carriers), but if you can get it in exchange for a measly $99.99, you shouldn’t think twice about it.
