Deal: $350 off the LG V20 new and unlocked


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.

Having purchased the extra battery and charger has been a wonderful experience. I never really have to plug my phone in at night. By the time I get home, I probably have about 33% battery left. I just plop the new battery out of the charger and I'm good to go. And I can do the same in the morning before work... I did also pick up a couple extra USB-C cables to have at my disposal if I want to recharge during the day / night. On the other hand, I am really eyeing the G6, but don't really have a need to jump in at this point.

This is a fantastic phone. Battery life could be better, but I bought a spare on Amazon with a charger and I always have enough juice for the day even with HEAVY usage. If I run dry, that quick battery swap is the perfect solution. The build is great, the second screen is actually useful, it packs excellent power under the hood and perhaps most of all, what I haven't seen people mention here, is that the sound quality with headphones is amazing. The DACs this thing packs really drive incredible sound quality to higher end headphones. Love this phone. Much better than thelast few Samsungs I'd had.

I did much the same. I bought two spare batteries and seldom require even one; that's to say once-a-week on average. Typically I have my V20 topped-off in my vehicles and at home. The V20 is better than my last three or four Samsungs and battery life outpaces my powerful but quirky V10; I was swapping batteries on the V10 as a regular procedure and it is still in-service on a third line. I am thinking of getting a second V20 as a deep backup to sit unused for up to several years particularly because it has a removable battery.

A 44% price drop within a few months? Yikes.

After comparing my V20 and S8+ side by side. I am sold on the S8+. It is a beauty and easy to hold.

It better be for twice the price!

You have to remember though, that even though the S8+ is $850, if you get a DEX docking station, it doubles as a desktop! If you keep that in mind, you're getting a pretty good deal.

The V20 is also a pretty good phone though, especially with the discount on it.

Do these boot loop too?

Enough with the same argument. Are you happy with the Apple/Samsung duopoly?

Certainly not, I wish for better competition. I really want to know if the V20s have the boot loop issue too?

Nooooooooooo! happy now?

True, it's insipid.

We have 4 in our house and none of them have that issue. Occasionally the lock button has stopped working requiring a battery pull, but nothing that has bricked any of them.

A very capable underestimated device, I would like to buy it, but the battery to screen size ratio is something to think about.

Are there any extended battery solutions for the V20? If so it'll make a good buy... but overall footprint of the device is a little too big for 2017. Else a very solid all round phone !! Only negative is footprint of the device !!

I remember zero-lemon made and extended battery for the v20, but adds to the bullkines of the device

I have the V20, I had battery concerns but to my surprise the battery life is better then what I had heard, although I am always armed with a spare I very rarely have to swap it out. For those who still want a phone with a removable battery this is an awesome buy!

Yes, the V20's battery life has been a welcomed surprise.

I use mine heavily and it never makes it through a day. Stock up on USB C cables and get a decent battery pack or two. I really love the phone.
