Cricket puts Amazon Prime Day to shame with incredible LG V35 ThinQ deal
Originally priced at an excessive $900, the high-end LG V35 ThinQ has been on sale a number of times lately at pretty hefty discounts from multiple major retailers and top-rated eBay sellers

Unsurprisingly, the 6-incher is available for 48 hours only at a lower than ever price of $399.99 in an unlocked variant meant exclusively for Amazon Prime members, but believe it or not, you can actually save an additional Benjamin elsewhere right now.

Cricket Wireless is currently charging a measly $299.99 for the summer 2018-released Snapdragon 845 powerhouse, and the only special condition you need to meet is activate the handset on a new line or upgrade an existing line of service. You don't have to trade anything in, port in a number from a different carrier, or jump through any other hoops. Of course, "qualifying" service is required, but you're free to choose whatever prepaid plan fits your preferences best from 2GB, 5G, Unlimited, and Unlimited Extra options costing anywhere between $30 and $60 a month.

For those who don't know, Cricket is a wholly owned AT&T subsidiary that doesn't do contracts or monthly installment plans, promising the same nationwide coverage as its parent company.

Meanwhile, the V35 ThinQ is naturally no longer the fastest steed in LG's US stable, but it's still a very impressive phone (at least at a deeply discounted $300 price point), packing 6GB RAM and a decent 3,300mAh battery in addition to the aforementioned Snapdragon 845 processor, while sporting a beautiful P-OLED display with 2880 x 1440 pixel resolution and razor-thin bezels, a dual 16MP rear camera setup, and a premium design combining glass and aluminum to blend fashion and strength.

Once again not a great deal if you're willing to look. I purchased this phone off eBay brand new 4 months ago for less than this for my wife. The deals are there but you have to look for them.

Mdorno - I am curious to know if the phone you purchased from ebay was actually a new phone or a previously activated phone. Thanks!

Factory sealed brand new phone. I don't buy used as I generally run my phones for 3 years before upgrading again. It's bad enough the battery on my Oneplus 3T only lasted me 2.5 years. I planned on running it for awhile yet but with a battery that lasted for 2 to 3 hours of screen on time before needing a charge it just wasn't cutting it anymore and I bought that brand new.

Bought one a couple of months ago to replace a troublesome Pixel 2. Great phone, 2 year warranty, paid $300 for the unlocked AT&T version.

Great phone. Even better with Gcam! All around good phone. Hopefully LG updates it to Q next year.
