Deal: Buy the LG G5 for just $299.99 and get a free LG 360 VR headset worth $129.99

LG tried to launch a whole new set of modular features with 2016's LG G5 flagship phone. However, consumers didn't take too kindly to it and this year's LG G6 had removed all of the modular capabilities from the year before. Part of the reason for LG's decision to give up on modular with this year's flagship had to do with the Moto Z line released last year by Motorola/Lenovo. The Moto Z series made adding modular accessories a snap thanks to the 16 magnetic pins on the back of the handsets.
Eliminate the modular features, and you still have a serviceable high-end handset with the LG G5. And at B&H Photo, you can buy the unlocked LG G5 right now for just $299.99. That is a massive $230 or 43% discount off B&H's regular price of $529.99. And when you take advantage of this sale, B&H will throw in a free LG 360 VR handset that is usually priced at $129.99.
The discounted LG G5 will work with GSM carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile, and some CDMA operators such as Verizon. And with the Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood of the LG G5, that isn't much of a difference from the Snapdragon 821 SoC that runs the LG G6.
After taking that into consideration, and including the free VR headset, B&H has a good deal for those seeking a flagship phone at a low-to-mid-range price.

Considering it has a dual cameras with one being wide angle. The battery is removable. It still has an IR blaster for controlling your TV, cable box, stereo, or other things. It has Nougat or Android 7 now. It even has USB-C, quick charge, and USB 3.0 transfer speeds. Plus their 360 headset is Cardboard compatible. Its a really great price.
