Deal: snag a brand new LG V10 for just $299.99 at Best Buy
The LG V20 may have been showcased earlier this month, but there's still quite a bit of uncertainty as to when and where it will actually release. Apparently, most regions won't see the device until next month at the earliest, while the South Korean firm is said to be unsure of whether to skip the European market altogether. Still, the silver lining with new announcements is that older models tend to shed considerable chunks off their price tags, and last year's V10 can now be snapped up for a fraction of its original $730 retail price. 

Right now at Best Buy, you can grab the LG V10 for the sum total of $299.99. Though it is an ageing handset, you get quite a bit of bang for your 300 bucks, including a Snapdragon 808 processor, 3 GB of RAM, a large 5.7-inch display with a resolution of 1440 x 2560 pixels, 3000 mAh battery and 64 GB of expandable storage. 

The incessant chase for top-end specs means that it's slightly adrift of most flagships of 2016, which generally include 4 GB RAM and the Snapdragon 820 or equivalent. But as we noted in our LG V10 Review, despite its fair share of faults including the rather modest battery life, the phablet is a pretty good all-round performer. 

If you don't want to wait for the LG V20 or its rumored ~$800 asking price, its predecessor looks a steal. The device is listed as the Verizon model and that it requires a contract, but no such information is required when you check out so presumably, it's both carrier and subscription-free.

The V10's key point is it being MIL-STD-810G certified shock resistant. And it's got a killer camera too.

Funny, I had a V10 and dumped it fast. V10 is good but not THAT good. Note 5 and iPhone 6S Plus are far better in terms of battery life and camera. V10 did feel very solid and very well built, but that's not enough for it to be anything more than a weird phone that only a handful of people would use for 2 years.

I have a V10 and most of the time it takes better pictures than my sisters iPhone 6s Plus.

Yeah, no. The 6s does not have a better camera, in detail during daylight or overall low light performance.

Note 5 performance sucks. The v10 is much quicker, with a much better build, and the camera is on par or better than either of those phones. Battery life is its only drawback. You don't even sound like you even owned any of those devices.

Superior phone. Plus it has a replaceable battery. I keep the screen on full brightness all day and night. Battery drains, I pop in another battery, no fuss, no muss, I never plug the phone in, only the battery charger. You know, like Samsung used to offer until it started using exploding locked-in batteries.

Nvm. I thought it was for the unlocked version. Booo

It's a Verizon smartphone, which means it's factory unlocked and works on pretty much any carrier.

Very true, but it won't have all the LTE bands to work 100%. I mean it'll be serviceable for the most part with all the US carriers. I've used VZW branded phones on Tmo and ATT. They worked ok but calls were very inconsistent....in my experience. Plus it'll have all the Verizon bloat still in there. That bugs me. hahaha.

So probably no wifi calling on TMobile then.

The v10 has 4gb of ram, and don't let the weird look or specs fool you, it's just as fast if not faster than most flagships today. Its a damn good device.

This beast is one of the most underrated smartphones.
