At 7.4mm thin and weighing 145g, the LG Stylus 2 is noticeably thinner and lighter than its predecessor. The sequel to the G4 Stylus features a 5.7" HD display for a better viewing experience.

The LG Stylus 2 works just like using a real pen and memo pad. It comes with a sensitive and thinner nano-coated pen tip that not only gives a real pen-like feel but also allows for more accuracy when note-taking and drawing compared to a rubber-tipped pen.

A new Calligraphy Pen font allows users to write as if using a fountain pen. Also new is Pen Keeper, which prevents the stylus from being misplaced. If the phone is detected as being in motion when the stylus bay is empty, a popup message is displayed. The LG Stylus 2 also features Pen Pop, a feature which toggles a popup menu when the stylus is removed for shortcuts to other features.

"LG Stylus 2 provides both the big screen and premium notetaking functions of a premium large phone, attractively priced like a mid-tier smartphone," said Juno Cho, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company. "This device is another example of our commitment to the mass-tier segment where there is so much opportunity for growth and creativity."
