Many people will argue that having a stylus to go with your smartphone is both archaic and an unnecessary gimmick. Other people may respectfully disagree. If you’re the kind of person who would like to have a native stylus interface on your mobile, but you don’t want to empty your bank account to do it, the big screen experience of the LG Stylo 3 Plus could be perfect. And it’s now in Canada too.

Aside from the inconvenience of spontaneous combustion, one of the other pitfalls of last year’s Samsung Galaxy Note7 was the price. It was expensive, as is the case with so many other flagship devices. The LG Stylo 3 Plus is decidedly more affordable, ringing in at about $350 outright. That’s much easier to swallow.

The “precision, fine-tip pen” noted in the press release can be used to “take notes, draw, select, and mark up” to your heart’s delight. The fiber tip stylus has a 1.8mm diameter, providing “the feel and feedback of an actual pen when writing on the screen.” Pen Pop 2.0, Pen Keeper, and Screen-off Memo are among the notable highlights.

Running through the spec sheet, we find a Snapdragon 435 MSM8940 processor, a large 5.7-inch FHD display, 2GB RAM, 32GB storage, microSD expansion up to 2TB, 5MP front camera, 13MP rear camera, 3200mAh battery, Android 7.0 Nougat and an integrated fingerprint scanner on the back. It also supports Band 66, so Freedom Mobile users can latch onto that LTE too.

The LG Stylo 3 Plus is available now from a broad range of Canadian carriers, including Eastlink, Freedom Mobile, Koodo Mobile, Bell MTS, SaskTel, and Virgin Mobile. Most carriers have an outright price of $350 to $360, with options for $0 up front on $10-$15 monthly tabs. Videotron has it for $0 on a monthly plan of at least $59.95, Telus has it for $0 on a $70+ monthly plan, and Bell has it for $99.99 on plans starting at $70 with data.
