The excellent LG V35 ThinQ is on sale at an unbeatable $260 in brand-new condition
LG pretty much condemned the V35 ThinQ to a quick and painless death right off the bat, releasing the Snapdragon 845 powerhouse just a few months ahead of an improved phone pairing the same processor with a larger display and a grand total of five cameras, up from only three.

On the bright side, while the V40 ThinQ maintains an arguably excessive price point to this day, fetching $900 and up at major retailers like Best Buy, the LG V35 ThinQ can be had for as little as $259.99 from a top-rated eBay seller. Of course, it's not fair to compare an eBay deal with an official Best Buy listing, but Amazing Wireless has a 99.9 percent positive feedback average based on more than 21,000 customer ratings from the last 12 months, and the V35 units on sale right now are brand-new, unused, unopened, and undamaged.

Basically, the only thing you're giving up here is a standard manufacturer's warranty, which can be important but it's definitely not worth $640. You should also note that the substantially discounted V35 ThinQ comes in a GSM global unlocked variant, which means it can be used on carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile but not Sprint or Verizon.

Available in black and gray color options, the summer 2018-released flagship packs 6GB RAM and 64GB internal storage space in addition to the aforementioned state-of-the-art SoC, while also sporting a versatile dual 16MP rear camera system, a beautiful 6-inch OLED display with a resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels and razor-thin bezels, a reliable rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, and a premium metal-and-glass construction.

Granted, the battery could be larger and the memory count is no longer ideal for an ultra-high-end phone, but at a crazy low price of 260 bucks, the LG V35 ThinQ certainly doesn't have to be a flawless flagship by late 2019 standards. Besides, if you're addicted to speed, you should know this bad boy somehow manages to beat the likes of the Galaxy S10+, Galaxy Note 9, and Google Pixel 3 XL in terms of US 4G LTE download capabilities.

I think this phone is a good example of LG not having a clear strategy because this phone became DoA due to the V40 coming out later. LG has dropped the ball too many times.

Haha. LG isn't the only company that dropped the ball on base storage size. Fortunately, they have picked up on that, and are moving to 128. If others, could follow, specially when some prices reach $650.
