Re: Stylus support?
Thanks for your comment. The G Pro 2 does not come with a stylus. The original G Pro did not have a stylus, either. LG has not developed apps for use with a stylus for any of its phones. Samsung has made it a point to create specific apps that use a stylus. I didn't mention the stylus in the article about the G Pro 2 due to LG's historic lack of support for the stylus.

one fact you left out
LG may ape the Samsung..well everything but one thing they do not do is update their android. The LG Optimus G Pro was left at 4.1.2 with no plans to update. Samsung at least does updates to older phones. THe Note 2 got upgraded to 4.3 with plans to go to kit kat. LG notoriously abandons phones

Stylus support?
You wrote an article and compared the LG to the Note 3. While I am sure you know that one of the primary reason people buy the Note 3 is stylus support, you failed to even touch on the topic in the article.

Does the LG have stylus support or does the absence of mentioning it mean it does not? Nothing like guessing.

Try to be thorough in your writing and remain relevant. Stylus support (not the rubber eraser type) is important to many people, especially those buying a phone with a large display. Samsung knows this and that is why they sell so many Note series phones. If LG doesn't include this support, then that is a rather glaring contrast don't you think?

The story was like reading an article about a car and the writer/reviewer failing to talk about whether the car used a gasoline, diesel or other type of engine. Hello?
