The LG G8 ThinQ is free with AT&T installments at Best Buy in truly unbeatable deal
AT&T customers are unlikely to be pleased with the changes the nation's second-largest wireless service provider is cooking up for its installment plan structure, but for the time being, you can still get the best smartphones in the world on both 24 and 30-month "Ma Bell" agreements.

Even better, a decent high-ender released earlier this year that's often overlooked by Android power users can be had essentially free of charge right now from Best Buy with either 24 or 30 monthly installments. This truly unbeatable LG G8 ThinQ deal is actually not entirely new, having been available at the same major retailer once before, shortly after the Snapdragon 855 handset was launched in the first place.

You're looking at saving a grand total of $830 here, or the full retail price of the G8 ThinQ, of which Best Buy will give you a $150 instant discount, with the rest of the money returned to you in the form of bill credits ($28.34 a month on a Next Every Year agreement or $22.67 a month if you choose to go with a "regular" AT&T Next "contract").

Either way, you will be getting a gratis 6.1-inch phone at the end of the day 24 or 30 months, available in "platinum gray" and "aurora black" paint jobs, with 6GB RAM, 128GB internal storage, a 3,500mAh battery, dual 12 + 16MP rear-facing cameras, Crystal Sound OLED speaker technology, Air Motion gestures, Android 9.0 Pie software, and a premium water-resistant build.

The only "catch" is you need to be a new AT&T subscriber or activate the ultra-high-end device on an existing account with a new line of wireless service to be eligible for the massive $830 discount. Upgrading customers have to pay significantly more, even compared to Sprint users, who can still purchase the LG G8 at an affordable total of $240 with their own installment plans.
