Deal: Get the Verizon LG G6 for just $288 from Best Buy

If you've ever felt like you wanted to buy a brand new flagship for less than half its regular asking price (and admit it, you absolutely have), then the time to act is right about now. Best Buy is currently offering US customers the LG G6 for an effective asking price of $288, which is a total savings of $384.

There's two catches, though: firstly, the deal only applies to the Verizon variant of the device, so if you're on a different carrier: tough luck. Also, the actual promo is a $11.99/month for 24 months deal, instead of the pay-for-it once variety. However, both the black and platinum color options qualify for the offer, which is a nice touch.

The LG G6 is something of a return to basics for the company, following the failure of the modular G5. To that effect, it's a pretty standard device, equipped with the Snapdragon 821 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB expandable storage. But its defining feature is undoubtedly its 18:9, 5.7-inch QHD+ screen with curved corners, which made it one of the first devices to follow the trend of the bezel-less, ultra-tall display.

It also features a dual camera module on its back, which sports a 13MP resolution and lets you take wide-angle photos, while its front shooter is a single-sensor 5 MP camera instead (but sport its own wide-angle lens as well). The phone also carries an IP68 certification, meaning it can be safely submerged in nearly 5-feet of water for as long as 30-minutes.

In contrast with this deal, Verizon itself offers the same device for $20/month instead, which works out to $480. Or in other words, this is a pretty sweet proposition, and also one we imagine will be quite popular as well, so if you've been eyeing the G6 we recommend you'd act fast, lest it gets sold out.

I'm all over this especially after hearing all the negative user reviews on the S8.

Man, just wish it had the Sd835. I'd already have one. It's a nice phone.

I agree, but I have read the user reviews from varies website and some feel the S8 is no faster than their S7. But I upgraded from the G2, S6 to the G4 and it was just as fast for as my S6 without the lag.

I'm hearing that you have to pay $52 or more in taxes up front. No thanks. I'll keep my G5 and S6 until something worth upgrading is released.

G5 is crap! S6 I will give you. But tell me where are you going to get a 2017 phone for that price? Any phone you get you will have to pay taxes on. Imagine the taxes on the S8 or S8+. Ouch! Highside, I seriously recommend you go play with the G6 and then compare it to your G5 and S6.

I paid $28.00 in taxes for the one I bought. That's still not bad that brings the total for the phone to about $315 for a phone that vzw wants $679 for outright....

Was playing with my friend's G5 next to my G6 the other day. My G6 is leaps (and bounds) better.
