Cricket customers looking for a low-cost mid-ranger with a reasonable amount of oomph will be excited to hear that the LG Stylo 2 is making its way to the AT&T-owned prepaid carrier on May 13th.
The LG Stylo 2 is better known as the LG Stylus 2 globally, and it was under this name that LG first showcased the device back in February. Aside from the name change, the Stylo 2 also has a slightly lower- resolution front-facing camera (5MP not 8MP) and a few under the hood tweaks. The rest of the Stylo 2’s specs include a 1.2GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 410 processor with 2GB RAM, 16GB storage, microSD, a 5.7-inch 720p display, a 13MP main cam, and a 3,000 mAh battery. There’s also a basic stylus, as you might have guessed considering the phone’s name. As for the software, it rocks Android 6.0 with LG UI on top.
The LG Stylo 2 is priced at $170 through Cricket, similar to the pricing we’ve seen for the phone on Boost Mobile and Virgin Mobile. For those new to Cricket, you can get it even cheaper if you port a line from a rival network, with $100 off for switching from T-Mobile and $50 for those coming from other rival networks.
