I bought the LG Stylo 3 a few months ago.  When this one came up - I did some comparing of the two models.   Be aware that the back camera on the new one is not as good as with the Stylo.   I am surprised that QVC is offering a new model that isn't as good as the previous one.  Just a heads up.

I thought the same thing.  My LG Fiesta has better specs.

@Ricki Lynn- That's the thing that's keeping me on the fence about this TSV.  Do you like the LG Stylo?  Is the included stylus worth the extra money?  I like the idea of having that available and not having to keep one in my handbag.

 

I also like the idea of the better camera, but not sure how much of a difference it would make in reality.  I love LG phones and currently have the LG Premier from a couple years ago and it's still working perfectly, so it's not as if I need a new one right now.

 

Is it worth waiting for them to drop the price again on the LG Stylo?

What i have noticed today,that there really is not much talk on the tracfone tsv today.

When you lose some one you L~O~V~E, that Memory of them, becomes a TREASURE.

The better camera makes all the difference to me.  My previous Samsung was not very good and take a lot of photos.  Frankly, I don't use the stylus very often.   I plan to upgrade once a better model is sold since it is a better option than buying more minutes.

@Ricki Lynn- Thanks.  I decided to pass on the TSV, but now the LG Stylo is only available on waitlist.  I guess others decided to go that route, too.  I'm hoping QVC will get it back in stock.

 

They have it on HSN, but it's $10 more and only has 1200 minutes, instead of 1500.

 

I was surprised to hear Shawn say last night that they only do one Tracfone TSV a year, as it seemed it wasn't that long ago that they did the LG Stylo, but I guess I lost track of time!

Just checked - I bought the Stylo in April 2018 - she is wrong.

@Ricki Lynn- Thank you!  I was sure they hadn't done it that long ago.  Even another host made the same statement that they now "only do one Tracfone TSV a year".  Just part of the the sales push, maybe.

@Venezia, @Ricki Lynn, I think they said that because I'm pretty sure the Stylo  was the QVC2 big deal, not the TSV. I could be wrong, but that's what I'm thinking. I bought the Stylo  too and this last Tracfone they had on tsv was nowhere near as nice.

 

@VeneziaI use a stylus very little but it is nice having one attached to the phone. It's very thin though and from reviews I've read, it breaks easy. Mine hasn't so far but I don't use it often enough. But I do recommend the phone. It's very nice. I had a Samsung before this. I tend to go back and forth between the two brands but tend to prefer LG the most. I love having a notification light probably more than anything. I've missed that. And the fingerprint scanner is very convenient. Love it!

@Qgirl26- Thank you for the additional info.  I didn't realize the Stylo 3 had a notification light.  I've gotten used to not having one, but it would be nice to have that on a new phone.

 

And I'm very curious about the fingerprint scanner.  I'll check out that feature.

 

My issue is that my DH insists on having a new phone whenever I get one.  All he uses it for is to phone; he never gets to grips with any other features but he's "got to have it".  I've been hoping the price would come down, but I may just go for it anyway.  Woman Frustrated
