    Have a 16gb sd card in my stylo. Apps pictures are all on sd . only thing on internal memory is what was preinstalled. Seriously it is crap. Constantly saying out of space i have to delete items. How about getting rid of half the nonsense bs thats preinstalled that we dont technically need... Note to self. LG STYLO SUCKS so wasnt worth 200$ never buy LG style phones.

    WOW i have the preinstalled and 23 other apps installed and still have 6gb space left on internal storage. I did Disable a few of the preinstalled apps giving some space back but really have no problems with storage. i do have 32gb sd card in for pics and music.

    Mine's a 16gig split equally between adoptable storage and fat32. Haven't had any trouble at all with space, but I don't like not having unfettered access to the fat32 partition on the phone.

    I have 65 apps installed and still have 4.65 gigs of internal memory left.   Now that we can move some to SD card it frees up more. Try that out. Sd moving wasn't enabled when I got the phone october 2016 but with 7.0 update now I can. You'll have to move to SD with every app update and not most will move but a good enough amount do.

    You may have a ota file in the /cashe that has your internal memory used.
    Take a look, if its there update the o/s or just delete the *.zip in /cashe directory.

    I haven't seen a stylo i haven't liked yet. 1,2,3 all have worked on t-metro very well and as they have been advertised to do so.
    The boost and sprint guys aren't very happy with the restrictions their carriers put on their devices but the end users made that decision.

  12. Two Stylo 1's with bad GPS, two Stylo 2's (K550+) with only 2GB RAM, both running 90+% RAM usage so they're pretty sluggish, before and after Nougat update. One of them has a camera issue, every photo looks like you took a picture of your subject on a computer monitor.

    That was enough for me to not buy any more LG devices lol... Viperdink lucked out. If not for the bad GPS I'd still be using the Stylo 1, it was fine otherwise!

    I had the OG Stylo and split my sd card into adoptable and portable. I'd still use it except for the crap GPS

    I do remember that they switched hardware after the 10j devices came out. They started putting inferior components in them and we here at This forum shared that so publicly and i beleve that was the end of the
    Stylo 1. I think they finished off doing the same thing to the stylo 2. If you look at the later runs LG components and place of origin are not as good as the originals. I still keep a brand new OG stashed to replace this one for when this one ever dies (knock on wood) and it has the Great Katana ROM on it.
    They were Great Days.

    The wife has the Stylo 2 (og) I bought her and she won't Go any where with out it. I tryed to get her to upgraded to a new phone and she won't. She opted for a new battery and case and doesn't let me dev on it. " At All.". Lol

  15. Lol... I still have my original Stylo 1's. Don't remember when or what run went to crap with those. I bought my wife's Stylo shortly after they started selling them, and liked it so much I bought one for myself a month later. Sucks because I loved the Stylo, but I really needed GPS for my job at the time. It also took the best pics out of any phone I've ever owned.
