With the LG G5 approaching, T-Mobile lowers the price of the LG G4

With the LG G5 approaching, T-Mobile lowers the price of the LG G4
With pre-orders for the new LG G5 scheduled to start in a couple of weeks, it looks like T-Mobile is attempting to clear some of its LG G4 stock. The carrier is now offering the LG G4 at $349.99, which is one of the lowest prices we've ever seen for the year-old device.

Just in case you need a refresher, the LG G4 comes with a hexa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chipset, 3GB of RAM, and 32GB of expandable internal storage. That's a pretty solid setup, although it should be mentioned that the LG G4 just isn't as fast as other high-end Android phones of 2015, such as the Samsung Galaxy S6 or the Google Nexus 6P. 

Other specs include a 5.5-inch IPS display with a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a top-class 16MP primary camera with manual photography settings, a removable 3000mAh battery, and Android 6.0 Lollipop (following a recent software update). For a much closer look at the handset, make sure to head on to our full LG G4 review.

Unfortunately, this deal is only valid for the 'Metallic Gray' version of the phone, meaning that you're out of luck if you were hoping to get a stitched brown leather model. As another downside, T-Mobile will sell you a branded SIM-locked version of the LG G4, although the carrier can unlock the device for you.

T-Mobile is also selling the phone through its equipment installment plan for $0 down and 24 monthly payments of $14.59. In this case, you'll have to sign up for one of T-Mobile's postpaid plans.

Sure, with the LG G5 scheduled to launch at some point in April, the G4 isn't as attractive as it was a few months ago. However, do bear in mind that the LG G5 will probably hit the market at a price of about $600, or nearly double than what T-Mobile is currently asking for the LG G4. What do you guys think, is this a good price for the LG G4?

If it's anything like the G2 and G3 you're best to wait just a couple more months.

It's a real shame and huge blunder by LG to have such a delay in releasing the G5. These companies need to have their products ready or don't have a press conference. That applies 100x to Sony, too. What a disaster of a company...

I've seen the G4 cheaper. Good price, but if you're willing to wait, give it a few more months.
