Powerful LG G8 ThinQ goes down to only $321 in 'mint' condition
The upcoming US release of the LG G8X ThinQ is notable not just for people interested in buying a different kind of foldable phone (that doesn't cost an arm and a leg), but also for those who may have forgotten about the original G8 ThinQ that's not even 12 months old yet.

While the early 2019-released 6.1-incher doesn't have any Dual Screen tricks up its sleeve, one top-rated eBay seller is currently charging a low enough price for "open box" units to warrant overlooking that feature omission. You'll probably "excuse" the LG G8 ThinQ for sporting a P-OLED panel with an excessively wide notch too when hearing you can get the Snapdragon 855-powered bad boy for only $320.99 in a platinum gray paint job or $327.99 as far as an aurora black hue is concerned.

Dealscaly, the California-based veteran eBay member with a 99.3 percent positive feedback score average that's holding this very attractive sale, promises to send you only "fully functional" devices in mint condition as far as cosmetics are concerned, with extremely minor scratches, "if any", due to "open box and unlocking." That's right, these incredibly affordable phones also come unlocked for use on GSM networks nationwide, shipping alongside a "free charger & cable" after clearing a 34 point factory inspection process to ensure there's absolutely nothing wrong from a functionality standpoint.

From the standpoint of specifications and features, the LG G8 ThinQ is arguably one of the best handsets you can buy for less than 350 bucks right now in such pristine condition. Apart from the aforementioned state-of-the-art Qualcomm processor, this bad boy also has a generous 6 gigs of RAM and 128 gigs of internal storage space going for it, as well as a reasonably versatile 12 + 16MP dual rear-facing camera system, a 3,500mAh battery, a reliable rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, a surprisingly decent Face Unlock solution, and... a largely useless Hand ID feature.

This is actually a fantastic deal. Would be even better if LG had a better software update policy, but a fantastic deal nonetheless.

There are similar offers on eBay for LG V50. For about $450 one gets bigger screen, 3 cameras and 5G.

Smh, this whole GSM only nonsense is asinine. It's not like two other carriers with just as capable networks don't exist. Well at least one of them even if they are costly. I'm not too fond of LG phones and this one isn't really going to change my mind or anything. I think the Galaxy Note 9 refurbished is a better deal. Then there's the plethora of Pixel 3 deals which is going to be a far better phone than the G8 ThinQ.

Pixel 3s are too buggy, poorer quality.

Both are running on SD845, while G8 uses SD855. Also, it has an ultrawide camera.
