Newegg for price matching link. (yes Walmart price matches newegg!) http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produ...36346&cm_re=lg_g_stylo-_-75-136-346-_-Product

This phone also does the touch share as well.

With the 5.7 inch screen it's a decent size larger than an S5 and from what I can tell just about as fast.

Looks to be a really nice phone at a really incredible price! At $129(Newegg) I could be tempted to do an impulse buy!

Pardon my ignorance, but what kind of things would a person need a stylus for?

Indeed; mid-range phones are plenty capable these days and no worse than two-to-three generation old devices, which are plenty fast for most things. The only 'issue' is OS update support and if that's not a big problem for the people buying the phone, they are stellar deals. Good find!

I had a stylus on my old galaxy note 3, and while extremely useful and powerful, found itself being a niche thing for me. Used it for screenshots mostly.

Very true.

Using Android version 6.0 (Marshmallow) . Build number MRA58K. Software version H63120b.

edit: With the newest OS, this phone cannot root ftw.
