The first Hidden Menu code i.e 277634#*# was common for both Stylo 4 & 5 but the 2nd hidden menu code has a little variation and is based on the model number.

Open the phone dialer and dial the hidden menu code as per your respective phone model –

The first test in the Manual Test Menu is, “Auto Detecting item Test”

Let’s start this test.

You can see the various test parameters. With this test, we can test the SD card Slot, Sim Card Slot, Battery, etc.

The 2nd test is the “Key Press Test”.

It also tests the Proximity sensor along with the hardware keys.

Press the Volume keys as well as the Power button to test its functioning.

Move your hand towards and away from the Proximity sensor to test it. The proximity sensor is located above the phone screen.

The “Display Check Test” turns the screen to all-black & all-white as shown above.

The Ring test will test the functioning of your phone’s external speaker.

The phone will ring even if it’s in the silent mode.

Similar to Ring test the phone will Vibrate at the maximum intensity during the “Vibrator Test”.

I passed the reader mode “NFC Test” by connecting my phone to LG K40 via NFC.

The Motion sensor test can be helpful in testing the 3 sensors present on Stylo 4 / 5 which are Magnetometer, Accelerometer & Gyroscope sensor.

We need to place the phone on the Flat Surface, then Horizontally & finally in the Vertical position to perform this test.

Loopback test is a testing loop between the audio via earphones and external speakers.

When Audio is turned on Speaker would turn off.

Similarly, when the “SPEAKER” is turned on the “AUDIO” is turned off.

There is a single test for GPS, Bluetooth & Wifi.

Before doing this test, turn on the “Location” service on you Stylo 4 /5. Along with this, connect your phone to a Wifi network and pair your Stylo 4 / 5 Bluetooth to another Phone / Bluetooth device.

Wait for the test to complete.

With “Touch Draw Test” we can test the functioning of the Touchscreen Digitizer on our Stylo 4 / 5.

 

Draw on the touch panel using your finger or stylus to make sure your phone’s touchscreen is functioning properly.

Take a picture and verify it as shown above.

With the PDAF test, we can test the functioning of Phase Detection Auto Focus which is much quicker than a regular Autofocus.

Record a video and verify it as shown above.

Swipe your finger on the fingerprint sensor to clear the “Fingerprint Test”.

I’ve passed the 3 Fingerprint tests, which are “SPI”, Zone” & “Checkboard” as shown above.

 

The 2nd option in the LG Stylo 4 / 5 Hidden Menu is the “ELT Test”.

We can do a Manual or Automatic Test.

I’ve selected the Manual Mode.

You can see the list of tests. Most of the tests we’ve already performed in the “Device Test” menu.

Let’s do the first test which is the “LED Backlight” test.

 

In this test, the backlight keeps on turning on and off.  We need to tap “Stop” to finish the test.

The rest of the tests in the “ELT Manual Test” are listed in the last screenshot above.

The 3rd option is the Hidden Menu is “SVC Menu”.

There are lots of tests, settings, and useful information in this menu as well.  You can give it a try.

Let’s move ahead to the last option in the LG Stylo 4 / 5 Hidden Menu.

Similar to MetroPCS there are 4 options in the Stylo 4 / 5 Boost Mobile Hidden Menu.

The 2nd option i.e “ELT Test” is renamed as the “ORT” test. The rest of the options are the same.

The “Service Menu – Manual Test” shows similar tests that we’ve performed earlier.

LG Stylo 4 / 5 Fortnite – Can LG Stylo 4 & 5 Play Fortnite?

There are 4 different variants of Stylo 4 & 5 which are Stylo 4, Stylo 4 Plus, Stylo 5 & Stylo 5 Plus. Even though the RAM varies between them (2GB & 3GB), they share the same processor i.e Qualcomm Snapdragon 1.8 GHz Octa-Core Processor. (Except for Sprint/Boost Mobile variant which uses a 1.5 GHz Octa-Core Mediatek Processor).

The minimum recommended Android System requirements for Fortnite are 64-bit OS, Android Oreo (or higher) & 4GB RAM.

Out of the 3 requirements, Stylo 4 & 5 are unable to fulfill 2 of these. They do have Android Oreo (Stylo 4) & Pie (Stylo 5), but the maximum RAM in any of the Stylo 4 / 5 variant is 3 GB only. Moreover, they all have a 32-bit kernel architecture (ARMv7l). So, the chances are bleak that Fortnite would work on Stylo 4 / 4 Plus / Stylo 5 or Stylo 5 Plus.

Still, Let’s check out if we can play Fortnite on Stylo 4 / 5 or not.

Can LG Stylo 4 & Stylo 5 Play Fortnite?

Let’s try to download and install the Fortnite app on LG Stylo 4 / 5.

I’ve used the Chrome browser to download the apk file from the official Fortnite website i.e epicgames.com

 

After downloading the installer file, Let’s install it.

As it’s a 3rd party app we’ve to give permission to install apps from unknown sources using the chrome browser.

 

As expected, LG Stylo 4  & Stylo 5 are not compatible with Fortnite. At least the official version is incompatible. Let’s try to install the modded Fortnite apk.

 

 

LG Stylo 4 / 5 Fortnite Modded apk Installation

I got this modded Fortnite apk file from xda forums. The minimum Android system requirements for the modded version is – ARM64 device (arm64-v8a) with Open GL 3 and above.

 

Unfortunately, Stylo 4 & 5  have armv7l kernel architecture as visible in the screenshot above. This is a 32-bit architecture and thus makes Stylo 4 / 5 incompatible with the modded version of Fortnite as well.

I was not even able to install this modded apk file.  It simply says “App not Installed” as shown in the above video.

The OpenGL version is 3.2 but it won’t matter as we cannot root and install a  64-bit Lineage OS Custom ROM on Stylo 4 or 5. Both the Stylo variants have a locked bootloader with no way to unlock it as of now. Thus, no chance of rooting or installing a Custom ROM.

On LG K20 Plus, I was able to install the modded Fortnite app using Lineage OS custom ROM (64-bit), but it failed in the Graphics department. The OpenGL version on K20 Plus is 2.1

How to unlock LG Stylo 4 & 5 for free-MetroPCS, Boost Mobile Q710AL

LG Stylo 4 & Stylo 5 are available with almost all the major US carriers. The most popular variants Stylo 4 & 5 are the factory unlocked version with model numbers Q710ULM & LMQ720QMA respectively. With the unlocked variant, you can use any GSM or CDMA SIM from AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon, Sprint, etc.

However, the other variants of Stylo 4 / 5  are locked such as LG Stylo 4 MetroPCS Q710MS, Boost Mobile Q710AL, T-Mobile Q710TS, Cricket Wireless Q710CS, Tracfone L713DL. There’s also a slightly upgraded water-resistant LG Stylo 4 Plus model which is available with Boost Mobile & AT&T with model numbers Q710PL & Q710WA respectively.

The locked LG Stylo 5 Models are MetroPCS LMQ720MS, T-Mobile LMQ720TSW, Boost Mobile / Sprint LMQ720PS, AT&T LMQ720AM (LG Stylo 5 Plus), Cricket Q720CS, Verizon LMq720VSP, Tracfone / Straight Talk LGL22DL & Xfinity Mobile LMQ720QMS

Now with so many variants of LG Stylo 4 & 5, the unlocking procedure varies from carrier to carrier. In this post, we’re going to find out how to unlock LG Stylo 4 / Stylo 5 for free. I’ve unlocked mine for free. We’re going to deal with each variant of Stylo 4 & 5 one by one starting with the  MetroPCS variant.

How to Unlock LG Stylo 4 / 5 MetroPCS Free – LM-Q710MS/LMQ720MS

To unlock a MetroPCS or T-Mobile Stylo 4 /5 we’ve to use the pre-installed device unlock app. I bought a new Stylo 4 from eBay a few months ago and using the below procedure I was able to unlock it without spending a single penny. Try out the procedure it may work for you as well.

Look for the “MetroPCS” folder on your Stylo 4 /5  Homescreen as visible in the first screenshot above.

Open the “MetroPCS” folder and tap “Device Unlock”

Accept the app permission by hitting “ALLOW”

The “device unlock” app says the device is network locked which prevents it from operating with other compatible wireless networks. Let’s try to unlock it.

Select “CONTINUE” to proceed further.

Make sure that you’re connected to the internet via Wifi or Mobile Data.

It’s connecting to the server we’ve to wait for a few moments.

Now, you’ll see the “Permanent Unlock” option on the screen.

Click on it to start unlocking.

Now, it’s checking whether my phone is eligible for free unlocking or not.

It’s good news! The unlock is approved with the message –

“Unlock Approved: Mobile device is permanently unlocked”. We’ve to Restart the phone to use a SIM card from another carrier.

After the restart, the “Device Unlock” app is gone from the MetroPCS folder as we don’t need it anymore.

The Stylo 4 is permanently unlocked and it’ll never re-lock again.

Now, you can use a SIM card from any GSM carrier worldwide with your Stylo 4 Q710MS/ Stylo 5 Q720MS. You won’t be able to use it on Verizon or Sprint network as they use CDMA technology.

If the above method didn’t work for you then you can purchase the LG Stylo 4 /5 MetroPCS device unlock service. It’ll cost you around $35 which is quite high but the only other way is to wait for 6 months after activating MetroPCS service and then retry to unlock using the above procedure.

Make sure not to buy any unlock code for Stylo 4 / 5 MetroPCS as the only way to unlock a MetroPCS / T-Mobile phone is via device unlock app. Even if you’ll buy an unlock code you cannot enter it anywhere.

 

How to Unlock T-Mobile LG Stylo 4 LM-Q710TS & Stylo 5 LM-Q720TSW

T-Mobile Stylo 4 / 5 uses the same Device Unlock app we used to unlock the MetroPCS phone. Use the same procedure to unlock your Q710TS or Q720TSW.

A prepaid T-Mobile phone becomes unlock capable after serving a period of 1 year and for Postpaid its just 40 days.

If you’ve failed to unlock your phone using the device unlock app you need to buy the LG Stylo 4 /5 T-Mobile App Unlock Service. It a permanent unlock service but quite costly at around $30-$35.

Similar to MetroPCS, an unlock code can never unlock your Stylo 4 T-Mobile, so don’t waste your money in buying fake unlock codes.
