The unlocked LG V35 ThinQ is an outright bargain at less than $300
It's no secret that mobile industry innovation has largely stagnated for the past half a decade or so, but the good thing about that is how you can often buy old high-end smartphones at exceptional prices without feeling like you're making as big of a compromise as the massive discount suggests.

Granted, the 2018-released LG V35 ThinQ is not as powerful or as handsome as a member of Samsung's 2020 Galaxy S20 family or the brand's latest 5G-enabled flagship. The 6-inch handset also comes with only two rear-facing cameras in tow, as well as a relatively modest 3,300mAh battery under the hood and no trendy hole punch or 120Hz refresh rate capabilities.

But while the LG V60 ThinQ typically costs $950 at Verizon and an unlocked Galaxy S20 5G starts at 1,000 bucks or so, the 4G LTE-only V35 ThinQ currently goes for as little as $279.99. We're talking about a brand-new unlocked variant backed by a 1-year US warranty here, mind you, and we're pretty sure you can still get free second year coverage with registration on LG's website too.

Available back in the day for as much as $900, the LG V35 ThinQ has recently received an official Android 10 update on AT&T, and although we have no idea when unlocked units are set to follow suit, you're unlikely to be left waiting very long. 

Technically, what B&H Photo Video is selling here at a colossal $620 discount is the so-called Prime Exclusive edition of the V35 ThinQ, but fret not, as you don't actually need an Amazon Prime membership to buy this Alexa-enabled phone in exchange for a measly 280 bucks.

In addition to hands-free Alexa voice assistance, the big guy has a more than decent level of processing speed going for it thanks to a Snapdragon 845 SoC, as well as a beautiful P-OLED display with a top-notch resolution of 2880 x 1440 pixels and no actual notch, two very capable 16MP rear shooters, a fast-charging battery, and a robust construction made to withstand water and dust, as well as the occasional drop and shock.

All in all, this is certainly a much better phone than the likes of the Moto G Power or LG Stylo 6, which are some of the best "modern" mid-rangers available for less than $300.
