LG Stylo 6 available at Boost Mobile

Boost Mobile on Wednesday confirmed that the LG Stylo 6 is now available for purchase. The phone comes with a fair amount of attractive features, including a stylus pen for people who feel like doodling on the go. If you’re in the market for a phone that lets you have some fun on the move, the LG Stylo 6 is worth looking into.LG Stylo 6 is now available at Boost MobileThe LG Stylo 6 is the latest entry in LG’s Stylo series. The phone comes with a stylus pen included making drawing or doodling easier. It also helps that the phone comes at a truly attractive launch price, with an added discount.The combination of the two make this a phone you can’t say no to.The LG Stylo 6 is available on Boost Mobile’s website.It comes with a launch price of $179.99, discounted $40 from $219.99. Buyers can get a further 20% discount by using code MEMORIAL2020 at checkout, bringing the phone down to $143.99. The offer is only available for a limited time however; it expires on May 26th, can only be bought online, and is limited to available stock.If you read our previous coverage on the phone, it is a well-equipped processor, Android 10 out of the box, great cameras, and a beefy display, giving you all the room you need to draw when you want. The phone also has USB-C, capable of Quick-Charge.The only real downside to the phone would be its limited memory, at three gigabytes (3GB) you might have slight slowing down now and then, especially when multi-tasking. Otherwise, the phone is bound to serve you well.The LG Stylo 6 is a versatile phone, which can be a great asset for anyone who finds a good way to utilize the stylus pen frequently. It’s a good solution for people who are into art, need to mark up documents, or prefer to write things down on the go — and don’t have the budget for a premium stylus phone like the Samsung Note series.

LG Velvet not expected to feature a Quad DAC

I’m new here, but as time passes you’ll come to realize how much I covet the headphone jack. Yes, Bluetooth audio is light years better than it was 10 years ago, hell even 5 years ago, but nothing beats a solid pair of wired headphones or IEM’s.After Apple had the “courage” to remove the headphone jack just about every other OEM as fallen in line. Ironically, they usually do it after having previously made fun of another brand for doing it.While pretty much every flagship phone maker has removed the headphone jack to sell its own Bluetooth headphones, LG has not only stood true to form and kept it on all models.In fact, LG actually often couples the 3.5mm jack with a DAC (Digital to Analog Converter) that rivals some of the best standalone DAC’s. The lone exception being the US version of the G6 which kept the Quad DAC in Korea and a handful of other Asian countries.From the looks of it, the forthcoming LG Velvet won’t be getting the Quad DAC. The image below, taken from a phone comparison on GSMArena, pits the Velvet (left), V60 (middle), and G8x (right).You’ll see that both the V60 and G8x have 32-bit/192kHz audio and 24-bit/192kHz audio recording, while the space under the Velvet is blank.left Velvet, middle V60, right G8xIf true, I’m sure LG does this to save on costs. I’m glad it’s moving to a different area to find the sweet spot because they actually make really good phones.The problem, as I see it, is LG has become synonymous with the Quad DAC, and it’s kind of expected when you see a headphone jack on its phones. A headphone jack on an LG phone without a Quad DAC would be kind of like if Google were to let an expert in computational photography leave.Your ThoughtsWhat are your thoughts on LG not including a Quad DAC? Do you care about the feature? Do you even know what one is? I’d love to hear your feedback in the comments below.

LG Stylo 6 key specs revealed

The LG Stylo 6 is the follow-up to the popular 2019 LG Stylo 5. The phone has been detailed by a Boost mobile employee who got a flyer from the company early. While a price or plan wasn’t mentioned in the flyer given to the employees, nor a release date for the phone, you can expect it to land very soon.LG Stylo 6 – The mid-ranger with a stylus returnsThere are a few phones in the world that offer the convenience and quirks of a stylus at the price of a mid-range phone. The LG Stylo series is among that line that offers a stylus at a comfortable price point.Image is courtesy of AndroidHeadlinesAccording to the promotional material handed out to Boost Mobile employees, the LG Stylo 6 will have quite a few features around it.Here are the key specs of the phone:The phone has a massive 6.8″ FullVision FHD+ Display (~1080p)Fast ChargingTriple camera setup: 13MP, 5MP wide-angle, and 5MP depth with AI CamFront Camera will have a single 13MP that delivers Bokeh shotsStylus pen64GB ROM with 3GB of RAMA fingerprint scanner on the back of the phone4000 mAh BatteryA dedicated key for Google AssistantSupports DTS:X 3D Surround Sound and Stereo speakersThe Stylo 5 did come to Verizon, Sprint, Metro, and many other telco’s after a timed exclusivity with Cricket Wireless, but so far it looks like the Stylo 6 is going to be exclusive to Boost Mobile.The LG Stylo 5 retailed for $229, so we expect to see the Stylo 6 around that same price, if not a bit more.All in all, this is a solid option if you’re looking for a phone with a stylus without breaking the bank. While the Moto G Stylus is also an option for $299, the only other stylus phones in the market would be the Samsung Galaxy Note series, all of which are always above the $799 price.

How much data does video streaming use?

When it comes to internet usage, video watching is one of the main interests of users. Most users are mainly inclined towards streaming videos so it matters a lot to know how much data is required for it. Of course, we do require a smooth internet connection to be able to stream our favorite content online.If video streaming is your preference then you must consider high-speed internet like Spectrum internet for instance, that do not offer data caps. This means you do not have to worry about any extra fee surprises in your bill that are bound to happen if you run out of your data limit. Most of the providers in the United States do impose data caps so it is very important to find out an internet plan that assures a no data cap policy. For that, let us first have a look at the data that is needed for various video streaming platforms.YouTubeJust like using any other app on your smartphone, YouTube being one of the popular platforms needs data too. It nearly takes 562.5 MB of data per hour. This holds valid when you stream at around 480p resolution. In case you want better resolution, then you might require 1.86 GB per hour for 720p. For 1080p you might require 3.04 GB. For watching videos in 4K, you will require a massive 15.98 GB of data per hour.NetflixWe all agree with the fact that how much we love Netflix as it has successfully evolved as one of the most popular video streaming services. For subscribers exceeding 130 million, the internet speed is not much of a problem. An hour of video streaming in standard definition would need around 1 GB of data. If you want to enjoy high-quality video streaming, you might need up to 3GB. For ultra-high-definition, you can require up to 7 GB of data per hour.The selection of accounts can help you decide a suitable resolution for your connection. If you want to save your data, you can check the settings option and click the save button when you want.Amazon Prime VideoAmazon Prime Video was launched by Amazon as a streaming service in 2011 and has ever gained popularity among the users. Nowadays it is seen as one of the biggest competitors for Netflix. This service provides up to three resolutions for the users. Among them include good, better, and best. The Good enables streaming videos at around 480p in standard definition and utilizes a data of 800 MB per hour. The Better option allows an HD stream with a data requirement of around 2 GB per hour. The Best option consumes nearly 6 GB of data per hour. You should also know that accessing Amazon Prime Video on your mobile app results in low data consumption as compared to the desktop app.HuluHulu is another important video streaming option that uses somewhat less data as compared to Netflix and Amazon Prime Video This makes Hulu as one of the most economical options available. You require around 680 MB per hour of data for the standard definition. If you switch to a 720p high definition setting, the data requirement may jump to 1.3 GB per hour. 1080p resolution can need data up to 2.7 GB per hour. You can also stream live TV if you are using Hulu’s $39.99 monthly plan.SpotifySpotify is one of the best-known music streaming platforms but not everyone knows that it also provides a video service in certain areas. The company does not disclose much about the data requirements of the video streaming service. However it only notifies that video streaming requires more data as compared to music streaming and is much like the ones needed for other video channels. Mostly the videos are in high definition and can consume up to 3 GB of data for an hour streaming.VimeoVimeo does not have any details regarding data usage. The standard definition content can need up to 353 MB of data per hour. As far as the HD videos are concerned, they need up to 2.75 GB per hour.StanMany of us might not have heard of Stan as it is accessible in Australia only. The app usually provides four-tier quality. The lowest standard definition setting can require up to 1.13 GB per hour while HD and 4K can require around 3 GB per hour and 7 GB per hour respectively.DirecTVThe DirecTV website also does not display clear information about the required bandwidth. In case if your provider puts a data limit, you can always reduce your video quality. The data consumption parallels to the aforementioned video streaming platforms.Sling TVSling TV is another one of the highest quality video streaming service that uses around 2 GB per hour of data for its highest quality option. The data required for medium quality is 540 MB per hour that further lowers to 360 MB per hour for low-quality streaming options.Summing UpYou need to be aware of the data consumption involved in the video streaming service you are using. This can save you from exceeding your data limit and paying any additional cost.EDITOR NOTE: This is a promoted post and should not be viewed as an editorial endorsement.
