It lags, random reboots, lags, lags, calls voicemail at least 10 times a day on it's own, texts all my friends and others I don't know, it lags, the fingerprint sensor is a joke, the mic barely works, so it's no longer useful as it's basic form and finally but not least, it frickin LAGS! OMG! My OG Huawei Ascend would mop the floor with this turd. I publicly offer to purposely brick this POS because it doesn't deserve to be rooted and get custom ROMS. How can you people think this phone is great? Oh yeah, did I mention my stylus I'm guessing fell out or jumped to it's death because one day I noticed it was no longer a thing. Worst phone I've ever owned. Period.

Maybe you have to update the phone or a faulty phone, in my case I didn't have any lag or anything, I'm a heavy user, I use a lot of apps on the background even multiwindow still no lag at all

The only problem with system updates is that further patch against exploits that could possibly be used to gain root access to the system. Subject change, I've got one guy above that says he does not experience lag, does anyone else want to back him up or jump on my hate train? OK, back to the other subject, I'd stay away from updates if you truly want to gain SU privileges. The worst is having to downgrade and is not always possible. My phone is on the June update and my apps are religiously updated, so that's not my phones issue, it just sucks. Have any of you that praise this phone ever owned a top tier flagship phone? Because this is so not a Nexus 6p!

I'm just saying my experience with the device no need to get defensive or hating cuz of this, if you want trash the phone and that's it, I'm just here to check for root status not for silly shity comments about it

Wow. Like the other guy stated: he's never had the issues you've experienced. Frankly neither have I. No one's hating on you or attacking you. You came on a thread about the Stylo 4, you trashed it and kind of left it at that. It's not that we don't believe you, but it's just not what we've dealt with personally on our phones. I bought the Stylo 4 on one of the first days it was available. I've also had the Stylo 2 and 3. Didn't have issues with those either. I buy these phones with the understanding that they're not high-end phones. It's not a Note 8 or 9. I've owned a Note 5 and S7. Both were great phones but they're not very budget friendly. The Stylo series is, however. It doesn't have off the wall specs. There's a lot it doesn't have but you do realize this phone is only $179, $30 or even free in some cases depending on port ins or current deals the carriers have. It has 2gb RAM so I experience a bit of lag, yes but only when I'm running a lot of apps in the background.
I haven't had the phone reboot randomly, dial voicemail or do anything crazy. You mentioned the 6P? That phone was the center of a lawsuit against Huawei. That phone had the famous Nexus name but suffered from a bootloop issue.

OK, you two realize I attacked no one, right? That being said, I'm gonna come off seeming a little offensive here, but honestly, you guys kinda attacked me and because of either your ignorance or just not reading my post, the first thing I said was the most important. If you really want an exploit to root your phone, the best thing you can do is refrain from system updates, not give advice to do them in a post that the main discussion is achieving root. So bad advice, no system updates! Secondly, all those bs websites that say root stylo 4 are bots that make the same claim for every phone that comes out. You want some malware, go play on those sights. I'm trying to help you guys, even if you think I'm a dick, I still have quite a resume and might know what I'm talking about. Short of LG adding the stylo 4 to their bootloader unlock program, it's a wrap boys and girls. Where does anyone get attack from my first reply? Really? Then trash Nexus? My phone is not defective, it boots up and starts impersonating an Android phone. The rom is junk, the hardware is not enough for the API Level, it's a perfect example of the rampid fragmentation that is still prolific throughout Android.

Please explain how me or the other person on here attacked you lol? All we said is we don't have issues with our Stylos. If it can't be rooted then I'm okay with that. Interesting you mentioned about malware because I agree with you on that actually. I've gone on some of those websites wanting to get a root method and I've been dumb in downloading something. Needless to say the next thing I had to do was just wipe windows and reload lol

On a side note to your profile pic: fox bodies rock! See? Something else we agree on! Those cars are frigging awesome

I've got a 93 calypso coupe, 306, 67mm turbo. Yeah, XDA has always been known for its flaming threads, lol, guess everyone was misunderstanding each other. Anyway, well today my charging port took a deuce, another point for **** status. I don't know, I could see if I had a hardware issue or I wasn't on the latest update (June security patches) that the phone my be defective, I did the hardware check in setting, optimize, blah blah blah, maybe my opinion of what lag is differs than others. I'm sticking to it sucks and the only reason I'm on this thread was because I was checking for a root strategy. Doesn't look very good for our team.

The update made mine run better.. before I did it the phone kept lagging and getting hot.. those issues are fixed but some apps like Facebook have minor bug with freezing.. once i refresh it fixes..

That is correct.. root will be harder, but not impossible.. as long as we have bootloader access some like myself can live dangerous.. i was thinking about getting another one for root and not updating it.. the newer the patch the harder it is to get substratum to work.. it creates some system ui error with most themes.. they updating some themes for Android pie so that might not still be the case.. but they definitely give me that custom rom feel..

Lol to your lower comment
Your car sounds and probably is badass
Honestly man I'd turn that thing into warranty. There's zero reason to have all the issues you've stated. The only phone I've had issues like that was the Samsung Galaxy Lite. It was 30 bucks so I expected it to be a pretty crappy phone of course but damn it was a pile. Fortunately I got it replaced under warranty from metro pcs.
As far as root goes I'm trying to be optimistic. I know with this phone it looks difficult
