Unlocked LG G8X ThinQ drops into impulse buy territory with killer new eBay deal
It's pretty much etched in stone, ladies and gents - LG's convoluted G family of high-end smartphones is dead and buried, as the financially (and creatively) struggling mobile division of the Korea-based tech giant has decided to move away from "alphanumerical designations" in an attempt to revive and reinvent its flagship lineup.
