Unlocked LG G6+ drops to $630 in the US, but there's a major downside


No matter whether or not the LG G6+ will be officially introduced in the United States, those who absolutely must own this high-end smartphone can already purchase it via Amazon. The phone was available through unofficial means since July last year, but for a $700 outright price.

Now, you can buy one for just $630 as long as you don't dislike the blue color. Amazon has the unlocked LG G6+ in blue color up for purchase for $629.99, while the gold version can be had for $649.

The bad news is the phone doesn't come with a warranty, just like it didn't come with one when it was first listed on Amazon more than six months ago. Another downside would be the fact that it's not compatible with any of the CDMA carriers in the US, which means you'll only be able to use it on AT&T and T-Mobile networks.

If that doesn't bother you, then the LG G6+ is a fairly decent high-end smartphone, which comes with slight improvements over the regular model (128GB internal storage). Or you could wait for LG to officially bring it to the US, but there's no guarantee that will happen.

Because this phone does have its benefits, including vastly superior audio quality.

So it's worth $630? With the 2016 SoC and the subpar battery life? Man more power to you.

I don't think the G6+ has vastly superior audio quality, that's the V30.

"....phone doesn't come with a warranty" "If that doesn't bother you," I wonder if they write articles like that with a gun pointed at their heads?! That would explain everything.

479 pounds doesn't equate to 500 usd. I really need to know where to buy the international varainf of s8 for 500 usd

I like the fact this phone comes with 128GB of storage, but I don't think 96GB of storage is worth an additional $200 over the cost of a base G6. Based on specs comparison, the storage is the only difference. I could see $550, but not $630-700.
