LG G7 ThinQ priced at $750 in the U.S.; pre-orders to start May 25th with a BOGO deal from T-Mobile

Thanks to a press release that was just disseminated by T-Mobile, we now know that the LG G7 ThinQ will be priced at $750 in the states. That makes it more expensive than the Samsung Galaxy S9. T-Mobile will start accepting pre-orders for LG's 2018 flagship this Friday, May 25th, at 8am EDT. The carrier will offer the handset via its EIP for $30 down and $30 a month over 24 months. And with T-Mobile's BOGO deal, a second LG G7 ThinQ can be purchased using the EIP, and you will receive 24 monthly bill credits to cover the cost. As usual, there might be a two-month period where you will have to lay out the monthly payments for both units until the bill credits kick in.

The LG G7 ThinQ is a big deal to T-Mobile customers because it will support the low-frequency 600MHz spectrum that the nation's third largest wireless provider paid billions for at last year's FCC auction. And low-frequency airwaves travel farther and penetrate buildings better. T-Mobile plans on releasing about a dozen phones this year that will support its 600MHz spectrum.

As per tradition, T-Mobile content director Des is starring in a video that unboxes the latest high-end handset under strange conditions. This time, Des is recorded traveling through the streets of San Francisco on an electric skate board made by Boosted. You can check it out by clicking on the video at the top of the screen.

An extra $30 over the S9 is worth it to not have curved screens.

Yeah, that notched screen with the huge chin is definitely a better design than a slight curve in the screen

It sure is. The edge display is one of the biggest blunders in cell phone history. A screen that bends away from you. Makes zero sense. Zero. Glare, narrow useable screen space, distortion on the edges, hard to pick up and even harder to protect properly. The G7 and any flat screened phone for that matter, is by default leaps and bounds better than any edge/infinity display. Common sense.

Yeah, having a notch AND chin, isnt really any kind of improvement, sport... it should be $30 less for that design

Is this still a better buy than the 6. I don't think so.

Which 6? iPhone 6 or G6?

I can't tell if you are trying to troll but I figured you wouldn't have much difficulty understanding that only one flagship '6' has been released till now, in 2018. And that's the only phone most people seem to be comparing the G7 too. So doesn't make sense for me to mention G6 or iPhone 6 when they are outdated, does it?? If you still can't guess it......Oneplus 6.

I'd at _least_ wait for the V35, if you're into LG. But for now, I'm going to hold onto my 2013 Nexus 5 (yeah) until the Red Hydrogen One comes out. It's either that or a regular smartphone.

We don't know what the price(s) will be, as we've only seen the $1195 and $1595 versions, which were pre-orders. But it's going to be a lot more than just a phone. I just don't know if it's going to be enough for what I want, so we'll see. If you just need a smartphone (even a flagship one), there's no reason to bother with the Hydrogen One.

Looking at the OnePlus 6 reviews, I would say the G7 is dead on arrival.
