LG extends extra battery and microSD card special promotion for LG G4 customers until June 30th


Back when LG launched the LG G4 in the United States, the company announced a pretty neat special offer available through both carriers and retailers. The company has been offering a second battery and a 32GB card slot with new LG G4 purchases, a deal that basically offers you about $105 worth of goodies. Originally, LG announced that the promotion will be valid until June 21, but the manufacturer recently announced that it is expanding the US-only special offer until June 30.

Although it may seem like LG is only giving away a second battery and a microSD card with the G4 flagship, there's a more subtle message to this promotion. By offering these two extras, LG is basically promoting two of the most important features of the LG G4, the removable battery and the microSD card support.

In a time when most high-end smartphones come with built-in batteries, the LG G4 is one of the few flagships to maintain a feature that, a couple of years ago, was present on most high-end smartphones. Furthermore, microSD card support is now featured by a shrinking number of high-end Android smartphones. Find out how the two features shape up the overall experience in our LG G4 review.

The removable battery and the microSD card slot are two advantages that the LG G4 holds over both the iPhone 6 and the Samsung Galaxy S6, and it makes sense for LG to promote the LG G4 through this well-thought special promotion. Now you have until the end of the month to take advantage of this promotion.

Are they that disparate to sell this mediocre phone that they have to give up so much potential profit just to put it in people's hands?

Really? Because it happens to have a decent camera? At the expense of what else? It has a mediocre screen, the build quality is poor - even with a flimsy film of leather, the software is underdeveloped still and they aren't using a top-notch chip and GPU. Let's not forget third party accessories are going to be fairly limited. The phone feels patched together and hinging on one sole selling point - the camera. But the S6 is as every bit as good as it's camera anyway

I just traded S6 for G4 and i am super happy. Finally i can have more than 3 apps in memory and i dont have to worry about free space. I even got some money back. S6 is overrated by a lot. It can get hot, many games dont like its GPU, memory bug is annoying as hell and it feels fragile. G4 is much better in hand and leather back has much more grip and feels great in hand. S6 is way to slippery and flat glass back only make thing worst.. S6 is really only phone for showing off, not much more than that. It has great camera and when it works right it is very fast but that is rare.

I don't know if additional accessories makes it the best or your talking about the phone altogether. Either way, it most definitely is not the best phone of 2015. That's either Nexus or Note like always.

This isn't new... they extended it over a week ago! Slow to catch on Phone Arena!

I finally got to play with the phone in the store yesterday. Its a great phone. Apps load instantly and the home button loads the home screen the moment you press it, unlike Samsung which takes a half second to load the home screen.

so my gf is coming from an ip5... wants to switch to android. Her main thing is she wants a good camera a lot of storage (so I said SD card is needed) and something that isn't too big. I recommended the G4, but im thniking it may be a little too big... anyways, size aside, you think this is a good choice to look at? Whatre some other ones? I haven't gotten my hands on it to play with yet. She is not a power user.

You joking right, if gf is going from iPhone, then you best of with an s6 or s6 edge, sorry to say, the G4 will be a very bad move

Well the point was a lot of space and a good camera... s6/edge dont have expandable memory so her music and pics will fill it up fast. That was my thought. Especailly since she doesn't do a lot on it.

The G4 is a fantastic phone WTH you talking about it being a bad move. I hear nothing but bad things about the battery life, phone being to slow and a lot of users have posted the SGS6 stopped working after a few weeks. I thought it was Sprint users untill I checked elsewhere. My Uncle had his SGS6 edge for 6 weeks then it stopped working. G4 takes better pictures while the SGS6 records better videos. Why spend $200 more for the 128gb SGS6 when you can spend $80 for a 128gb sd card that gives you a total of 160gigs with the G4. Lets not forget once the 256gb sd cards come out the G4 can use them while your stuck at 128gb with the SGS6. Best choice is going for the G4 hands down. Its not even that big of a difference between the 2 phones performance wise anyway.
