The LG V10 now comes with a free 64GB microSD card, spare battery, and charging cradle


If you were thinking about purchasing the LG V10 in the upcoming weeks but were waiting for an extra incentive, then LG's latest promotion might catch your eye. The manufacturer is offering a 64GB microSD card, a spare battery, and a charging cradle for the battery with new LG V10 purchases. Separately, these accessories would set you back $125.

To qualify for the free items, you'll need to purchase an LG V10 from Verizon, AT&T, or T-Mobile by December 20. Once you get the device, head on over to the source link below, fill a form and send a copy of the receipt, and LG will send you the goods.

LG is not a stranger to such promotions. Both of the company's recent high-end phones - the LG G4 and the LG V10 - come with a removable battery and microSD card compatibility, and LG's promotions have offered accessories that build upon these advantages. The LG G4 was repeatedly offered in a similar bundle earlier this year, while the LG V10 was initially offered with a free 200GB microSD card.

When we reviewed the LG V10, we found that the phone features excellent system performance, great still image quality, and super-quick charging, while the secondary display is perfect for boosting productivity. On the downside, the LG V10 also has a few cons, such as inaccurate display colors, a cluttered UI, modest battery life, and subpar video recording capabilities. For a much more detailed analysis of the device, head on over to our LG V10 review.

Hey look, maybe if we give stuff away with our phone, people will buy it. Poor LG. such a good phone too. I wonder how the sales are?

It worked on me, I imagine it might net them some more sales. It really is a shame how underrated it is.

TechieXP does nothing but swallow Samsung in every post. As a Sasmung S4 and S5 owner, your Samsung fanboi posts make everyone laugh at you. LG V10 is for intelligent buyers. Every other 2015 phone is for sheep.

Not as good as the 200GB card I'll be getting in mail in the coming weeks, along with the battery and cradle, but maybe this will convince my brother to go ahead and jump to the V10 from his S5, seeing as he missed the initial promotion.

They should start promotions like this when they launch the phone. If they already know people aren't buying just any phone, they should start with a low price and free SD cards, wireless chargers, case, or extra battery. At this point anything that will call attention to the LG brand.

They did. And it was even better than this promotion, it included a 200 GB SD card. I'm not sure if you were aware of that.

I just got mine yesterday from the original T-Mobile promotional. Even without it the V10 is still one of the best phones of 2015.

Seriously? "On the downside, the LG V10 also has a few cons, such as inaccurate display colors, a cluttered UI, modest battery life, and subpar video recording capabilities." I'll agree with the battery life. This thing should have a 4,000 mAh at minimum. I haven't noticed any inaccurate display colors The UI is highly customizable and far less laggy than the Samsung Note 3 that I came from. I don't notice any "clutter." The subpar video comment is laughable. This is the only phone I know of with manual video mode. You're drunk phonearena, go home.

My Note 3 was laggy has hell too. My Note 4, not nearly as much. I held off on the Note 5/Edge+ due to the lack of SD card slot. Hopefully the Note 6 will have one otherwise I might get the 2nd Gen V10.

I thought the same thing. My colors are highly accurate. And I have no problems with the interface or anything other than the battery life. Thank goodness for the extra one.

This is a great promotion. Definitely enticing me to check the V10 out.

If manufacturers did this as standard with all of their phones that had the removable battery and microSD slot, then I could imagine those features holding more value to the average consumer. In reality, I don't think they care if phones come without these features.

The only things wrong with this phone are: 1) Too big for most people (some people like big phones though) 2) No wireless charging If they make, say, a 5" version next year with no top screen, and hopefully use the Snapdragon 820, and add wireless charging, you'd have pretty much the perfect phone for SO MANY people.

The size is perfect for me, but I think a second, smaller version, would cover all of the bases. With out of the box wireless charging, a bigger battery, and a great stylus to compete with the Note this thing would be perfect.
