T-Mobile's LG G6 is now almost as cheap as the (inferior) LG Q7+
Earlier this month, T-Mobile started selling the LG Q7+, a new mid-range smartphone running Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The Q7+ costs $350 at T-Mobile - a fair price for the features it's offering. However, if you're thinking of buying T-Mobile's Q7+, you may want to know that you could get a more powerful LG handset for almost the same amount of money. We're talking about the LG G6, which is currently sold by T-Mobile for $360.
The LG G6 - pictured above - may be over 1 year old now, but it's superior to the Q7+. The ex-flagship G-series phone has a larger screen with higher pixel resolution (5.7-inch, 1440 x 2880 pixels vs. 5.5-inch, 1080 x 2160 pixels), a more powerful processor (Snapdragon 821 vs. Snapdragon 450), wireless charging, and a high-end dual rear camera (the single 16 MP rear camera of the Q7+ is a mid-range one without 4K video recording).

The main advantage of the LG Q7+ is that it comes with 64 GB of storage space, whereas the G6 offers 32 GB. Both phones support microSD cards anyway, so this shouldn't be a major differentiator. 

The two LG handsets can be bought from T-Mobile via the source links below. It's ultimately up to you to decide between the Q7+ and G6 - we just wanted to let you know that, at this moment, the latter offers more bang for the buck.

I bought a mint condition LG G6 on Swappa for $180. Best purchase I've made in a while.

Yep, I've seen some around that price $220 but it's new, from Ebay sellers that I like, I've seen even cheaper Pixel handsets though.

The Q7+ has that HiFi DAC that this version of the G6 is missing. Also the Q7 is water proof. It ultimately comes down to your needs as a user

Actually, both the G6 and Q7+ are water resistant (IP68), so there's no difference in this regard.

TMO has been selling the G6 for $360 for at least a couple of months now. I don't think LG phones are selling well anywhere.
