LG had recently announced its LG G3 Stylus phablet that brings the G3's premium experience at much affordable pricing and adds up the stylus feature, as the name suggests. The device has now gone on sale in India for Rs 21,500 and will be available in Black, White, and Gold color options.

G3 Stylus tunes itself in the phablet segment, where you already find the likes of Samsung Galaxy Note 3 Neo, HTC Desire 816, and Sony Xperia T2 Ultra selling across different markets, including India.

LG has been talking about bringing its G3-like user experience to more audiences and this is where the G3 Stylus comes into the fore. The Optimus UI running on LG devices (especially the G3) has been well received, which has prompted the Korean brand to bring the G3 goodies to consumers eyeing the affordable phablet market.

The G3 Stylus sports a 5.5 inch qHD display and runs on Android 4.4.2 KitKat version with G3-like user interface. But that's where the similarity ends and the cost-cutting shows up. It packs a 1.3 GHz quad-core chipset with 1GB RAM and offers 8GB expandable storage capacity. We do like the fact that the Stylus comes with 13 MP rear snapper and a 1.3 MP front camera. L3 G3 Stylus is loaded with a 3,000 mAh battery, which is paramount for a device of this stature.

Talking about the launch, Amit Gujral, Marketing Head, LG Mobiles, said, "We believe that the G3 Stylus is perfect for consumers looking for a powerful display and sophisticated design with a reasonable price tag. The G3 Stylus smartphone offers not just a stylus experience but also the same premium user experience and design heritage of the G3. We are confident that the G3 Stylus will set a new benchmark for large smartphones in the Indian consumer market."

Many companies have now started to realize that the premium smartphone space is not the only space in which business happens and hence we see the likes of HTC, LG, and even Sony looking at other launching interesting devices at other price points. At this point in time, we see a lot of action in the Rs 10,000 to 20,000 space and this phablet device we think will add more spice in this segment.
