Best Buy cuts LG V40 ThinQ price in half with AT&T installments

Best Buy cuts LG V40 ThinQ price in half with AT&T installments
The V40 ThinQ is not LG's newest or fastest smartphone, having been released around eight months ago with a then-impressive Snapdragon 845 processor under the hood. But although the G8 ThinQ and 5G-enabled V50 ThinQ have seen daylight in the meantime packing Snapdragon 855 power, their forerunner is back in the spotlight thanks to official Android Pie updates recently distributed across the US.

With the silky smooth new software and a substantial discount, the LG V40 ThinQ can be a pretty smart purchase, even though the handset didn't exactly earn the best reviews last fall. Typically priced at an exorbitant $950 or so, the 6.4-incher is currently available from Best Buy for only $15.83 a month with AT&T Next agreements or $19.80 a month on an AT&T Next Every Year plan.

After paying 30 or 24 installments respectively, that amounts to a grand total of around 475 bucks, which is precisely half of the V40's retail price. The only inconvenience is your $475 savings will be offered in the form of bill credits ($15.83 or $19.79 a month) instead of outright discounts. Still, at the end of the day, you'll pay $475 less than usual for this very respectable high-end device with five cameras in tow (three on the back and two on the front), extra-large OLED display sporting 3120 x 1440 pixel resolution, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage space, and premium build quality with top-notch resistance to water immersion as well.

Granted, the LG V40 ThinQ doesn't come with the same tricks up its sleeve as the G8 ThinQ (Hand ID, 3D Face Unlock, Air Motion gestures, and so on), but right now, that stuff feels rather gimmicky anyway.
