Flagship on the cheap: LG G6 now available at discount from Amazon Prime


This year, the Amazon Prime program stirred a bit of controversy as it slowly gained popularity and came to the public eye. Basically, it goes like this — you can get a brand-new smartphone for a pretty good discount, but the device's lock screen will feed you Amazon Prime ads every time you light it up. A lot of people despised the idea of "selling out" their lockscreen for a discount, but plenty enjoy the opportunity. And, to clear things up, you can pay an extra $50 down the line and have the ads removed from your phone.

Thus far, the Prime program only had midrangers and low-tier devices in its roster, so it wasn't something to get super-excited about. However, starting today, we've got 4 new LG phones in there — the low-range X charge, the Q6, and then the flagship LG G6 and its bigger G6+ brother.

The LG G6+ is an upgraded version of your regular G6 that comes with 128 GB of storage, a Hi-Fi DAC to please audiophiles, and a set of B&O Play earphones straight in the box. On the Amazon Prime program, you can get it for $499.99, while the "regular" LG G6 comes for $399.99 — quite a steal.

Got 2 from T-Mobile for $500 plus another $100 for add a line, so 2 for $400 plus tax. I really want the G6+ but more in the $350-375 range like my Nexus 5X.

Nice, but I'm trying to get away from iPS LCD displays

Doesn't a fingerprint scanner get around the ads?

Any Android device I've used you still see the lock screen before the phone accepts and registers the finger print.

On my Honor 6x and Moto G5s Plus, you touch the scanner and it bypasses the lock screen. Same for the Honor 8.

I would go after the standard G6 without ads. $450 is a steal indeed,
