If you want to buy a new and powerful smartphone, you normally have to pay anywhere from $500 to over $1,000 for it. So we're pleasantly surprised to see that T-Mobile currently allows customers to get a high-end 2019 handset for just $359.99. The handset in question is the LG G8 ThinQ (seen above), first launched back in April.
While T-Mobile's LG G8 ThinQ costs $749.99 outright, you can save more than 50% on it when you purchase it on a 24-month payment plan and add a new line. If you qualify for this offer, T-Mobile will give you back $390 in bill credits over 24 months, thus bringing the phone's final price down to the aforementioned $359.99. This deal does not require you to trade in an old phone.
Earlier this year, T-Mobile was selling the G8 ThinQ in two color versions: Carmine Red and Aurora Black. Now, however, you can only get the device in black.
For a handset that can be purchased for as low as $360, the LG G8 ThinQ has a lot to offer, starting with a 6.1-inch, 1440 x 3120 pixels OLED screen and a powerful Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor. The phone is dust- and water-resistant and, unlike many of its rivals, it comes with a classic 3.5 mm audio jack. The G8 ThinQ further features stuff like 6 GB of RAM, 128 GB of expandable storage space, a dual rear camera (12 MP regular + 16 MP ultra-wide), and a 3500 mAh battery. The handset currently runs Android 9 Pie, but an update to Android 10 should be available soon.
Like all high-end LG Android phones launched in the US in recent times, the G8 ThinQ comes with 1 extra year of warranty for free. You can find out more about the handset from our review of it accessible via the first link below.
