Boost Mobile has a killer LG G6 deal, letting you save a whopping $330
The G6 is hardly the most desirable LG phone out there after the company’s dozen or so new high-end releases this past year. We kid, of course, although it’s definitely not easy for the LG G6 to stand out among the G7 ThinQ, V30, V30S ThinQ, V35 ThinQ, and V40 ThinQ.

Basically, the only conceivable reason for choosing the early 2017 LG flagship over its younger and punchier siblings and cousins would be an irresistible discount. $330 off a $600 list price sounds like it could fit that description, but you’ll need to purchase the handset from Boost Mobile to score the killer new deal.

Boost is a Sprint-owned MVNO that should be able to survive its parent company’s looming merger with T-Mobile, offering some pretty great phones at generally enticing prices on prepaid plans.

An MVNO, by the way, is a mobile virtual network operator that uses the infrastructure of a larger carrier, so basically, you will need to embrace Sprint’s coverage here. If that’s not a problem, you may also like to know Boost Mobile’s no-contract plans start at $35 a month, capping off at $80 for “Ultimate Unlimited” service with “everything that matters”, including 40 gigs of mobile hotspot data.

As far as the LG G6 is concerned, its Snapdragon 821 processor is no longer the cream of the crop, and the dual rear-facing cameras probably could be better as well. But at only $269.99, the bang for buck is pretty much unbeatable, including a “FullVision” 5.7-inch display with top-notch 2880 x 1440 resolution (and no notch), a robust metal-and-glass body protected against water immersion and even various shocks, 4GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, microSD support, a headphone jack, decent 3,300 mA battery, and Android Oreo software, no doubt with Pie goodies in the pipeline.

Available in “Ice Platinum” and “Mystic White”, the G6 is also still eligible for Second Year Promise enrollment, extending your standard 1-year warranty to a full 24 months. Don’t forget to register on LG’s dedicated website.

Boost is owned by Sprint. They are CDMA - and locked only to Sprint. You can look into unlocking after one year on Boost on same number.

They are CDMA as far as I know as they are a subsidiary of Sprint. Not really an MVNO as they are owned by Sprint now.

You are correct - CDMA, could be unlockable after 1 year on same number on Boost.

Why would anyone want a G6 when you could get a G5 for $150 that has a better camera and is not much different from the G6 otherwise in terms of performance or battery life.

Even Better - it's only $79.99 at a Boost Store when you port from another carrier and go on an unlimited plan!!! (Not Virgin, Not Sprint.)
