New and unlocked LG V20 is down to $449.99 at Newegg
The LG V20 phablet was launched back in September of last year. With the likes of Sony's XZ Premium, Samsung's Galaxy S8 duo and LG's own G6 having been announced over the past couple of months, however, the V20 has a real struggle to capture the attention of consumers. Being a six-month-old in a market where handsets typically get a one-year shelf life, the V20 doesn't have youth on its side, but a price drop over at Newegg gives it one major advantage over its contemporaries.
A device with an original retail price just shy of $800, the unlocked, Titan model of the LG V20 can currently be snapped up for a mere $449.99. It's listed on the Newegg website at $499.99, but if you enter the discount code EMCSRERD5, you get another fifty bucks off.

With the aforementioned new devices already official and the likes of HTC and Apple still to show their flagship hands for this year, smartphone shoppers have plenty of options to mull over. If you're happy to rock a device from yesteryear, though, the V20 looks a pretty sweet deal for under $450 and as we noted in our review, it's got lots going for it.
As a refresher, you get a 5.72-inch QHD main display, with a smaller LCD just above for quick-launching apps and other added functionality. Under the hood sits Qualcomm's Snapdragon 820 chipset, alongside a more-than-reasonable 4 gigs of RAM. There's also 64 GB of expandable storage, a tough, rugged overall design, and the 3,200 mAh battery is handily removable.
A solid effort both in features and in build, the price point will no doubt thrust this device back into the reckoning among those seeking a new gadget. The question is -- will you be picking one up? Let us know in the comments.
Also, this deal runs until the end of tomorrow (Tuesday), so move quickly if you don't want to miss out.
