LG has already released two different high-end smartphones so far this year, reportedly preparing another two
for an official announcement in just a few weeks, which will make it even harder for the G8 ThinQ
and V50 ThinQ 5G
to stand out from a very crowded pack.
- Amazon Prime Day is upon us—and we've picked out the best deals and promotions for you, from Amazon and others, and brought them to our PhoneArena deal hub.
On the bright side, the impending release of a G8X ThinQ
with a smaller notch and more refined design also means we should expect the original LG G8 ThinQ
to continue dropping in price. Normally listed at $850, the grossly overlooked 6.1-incher can be purchased at a massive $350 discount right now on Amazon in a special edition equipped with hands-free Alexa technology.
That means the e-commerce giant's popular voice assistant can be summoned with absolutely no effort and no touching the device, at least after you complete a quick initial setup of the Alexa and Qualcomm Voice Assist apps. This substantially marked-down variant of the G8 ThinQ comes with a "pre-installed selection" of Amazon apps as well, including Shopping, Music, and Audible, but the deal is available for everyone rather than just Prime members.
In fact, the last time we saw the well-reviewed high-ender
score such a huge discount was during Amazon's Prime Day
blowout about a month ago. At the time of this writing, retailers like B&H Photo Video and Best Buy are charging way more than Amazon for an unlocked LG G8 ThinQ, even with upfront carrier activation. Of course, the best way to maximize your savings is still to commit to an operator like AT&T
and sign up for monthly installment plans.
Compatible with all US networks, from AT&T and T-Mobile to Verizon and Sprint, the unlocked units available on Amazon for a very reasonable price come with 128 gigs of internal storage space, 6GB RAM, a top-notch Snapdragon 855 processor, a sharp 3120 x 1440 OLED screen with a fairly wide notch, dual 16 + 12MP rear-facing cameras, a 3,500mAh battery, innovative Crystal Sound OLED technology, hand vein recognition, and somewhat gimmicky Air Motion
