Best Buy starts selling unlocked LG G8X ThinQ at up to a $350 discount
While actual foldable phones are still prohibitively priced or out of reach entirely in markets like the US, the LG G8X ThinQ has recently made its debut on two major carriers stateside, also going on sale in an unlocked variant at B&H Photo Video just last week.

At first glance, there's nothing special about the 6.4-inch handset, but AT&T, Sprint, B&H, and now Best Buy and Amazon are all selling the conventional Snapdragon 855 powerhouse bundled with a decidedly unconventional Dual Screen case. This essentially turns the G8X ThinQ into a foldable... of sorts, offering an enhanced gaming and multitasking experience in seamless and affordable fashion.

The unlocked phone is even cheaper at Best Buy than B&H if you don't have a problem activating it upfront on one of two specific US networks. New Sprint subscribers and existing ones willing to open a new line of service are looking at paying just $599.99 instead of a $949.99 list price, while upgrading customers need to cough up an extra 50 bucks. The same $649.99 charge applies for AT&T activations, although curiously enough, Best Buy isn't also offering the G8X ThinQ at a discount with Verizon activations.

On the bright side, even if you're looking to get the powerful and versatile device with absolutely no strings attached, you stand to spend an affordable $699.99. Then again, that $949.99 MSRP feels somewhat misleading, and something tells us you will never be charged that much for a decent but not exactly mind-blowing phone with a notched primary OLED display, a 12 + 13MP dual rear-facing camera setup, a 4,000mAh battery, as well as 6GB RAM and 128GB storage space.

The LG G8X ThinQ is available at its full retail price on Amazon, but Prime members can also score a $250 discount without any heavy-lifting whatsoever.

Basically not a deal here at all. Still the same price for the unlocked, but $100 off with activation. Nice spinning PA.
