While the overall performance of the LG Stylus DAB+ isn’t exceptional even within its constrained price range, it is considerably cheaper than the Note 5 while still being within striking distance of its battery life.

  • Saves money on streaming services
  • Stylus works well
  • Good battery life
  • Acceptable camera
  • Digital radio disappointments
  • Mediocre application performance

LG Stylus DAB+

Smartphones as a category are very mature, with only a few features used to differentiate each model, and that’s typically in the premium space. For a mid-range phone to include a world’s first feature is an interesting step on LG’s part, but that’s precisely what the LG Stylus DAB+ does.


Design

  • Digital radio support is a neat idea held back by a number of awkward limitations
  • Titular stylus adds versatility your average smartphone lacks

Camera

  • Unremarkable yet totally competent camera, both for traditional photography and selfies

Performance

  • Sits at the low end of the performance rankings, even compared to significantly cheaper smartphones
  • Still capable of acceptable performance in basic tasks

Battery life

  • Plenty of endurance thanks to its 3,000mAh battery
  • Even with its large screen, all-day battery life is well within reach

Verdict

  • The digital radio feature might be a bit of a letdown, but if you're after an affordable phone you can write notes on, the LG Stylus DAB+ is well worth a look

Pricing and availability

  • The LG Stylus DAB+ is no longer available for purchase in Australia.
