How to bypass LG Stylo 4 lock screen without reset
You can see I’m stuck on the LG Stylo 4 lock screen. I don’t remember the screen lock password.
The Google verification screen on LG Stylo 4 shows up when you reset the phone via volume down and power keys. When locked out on Stylo 4, the only option left to restore the phone is via factory reset.

Both LG Stylo 4 & 5 have 32GB internal storage space. Half the storage space is used by System memory. We are only left with around 16GB of usable storage space.
The good thing is we can increase the memory via a micro SD card. However, only the media and other files can be stored in the external memory. The app & game installation will still occupy the internal storage space.
The solution to this problem is the Adoptable storage feature. It allows us to move apps to the SD card and makes it the default storage space for apps & games.
Let’s see how to do this –
How to move apps to SD card on LG Stylo 4 & 5 – MetroPCS, Boost Mobile, Cricket, etc.
Use a high-speed micro SD card. At least Class 10 is preferable.
Make sure to backup your internal storage data before moving further.
The camera app may not work. A 3rd party camera app from the play store would work.
Keep the SD card inserted all the time to avoid app close errors.
First of all, let’s install the SD card.
Use a SIM ejector tool to remove the SIM tray.
Place the Micro SD card in its respective slot and push back the sim tray.
