LG’s Q range of mid-range devices just got bigger with the arrival of the LG Q Stylus today. The LG Q Stylus has three variants – LG Q Stylus, LG Q Stylus+ and LG Q Stylus a (or LG Q Stylus Alpha). The main difference between these variants lies in RAM, storage, and camera hardware. Otherwise, they’re the same package. The range is called Q Stylus for a reason, and that’s because the series comes with a stylus that allows handwriting, creating GIFs, and editing images.
