Here's how you can get the powerful LG V40 ThinQ for as little as 60 bucks
The V40 ThinQ was not exactly the best-reviewed high-end Android phone released in the second half of 2018, but one of the big reasons why the Snapdragon 845 powerhouse left us feeling disappointed after spending some time examining its strengths and weak points was an arguably excessive price tag.
That's no longer a problem, at least if you're willing to pick the 6.4-inch handset up from Best Buy on a monthly installment plan with Sprint. Both new and existing customers of the nation's fourth-largest wireless service provider can qualify for this killer deal, which takes no less than $660 off an already reduced list price of $720.
That means you currently need to pay a measly 60 bucks to get a blazing-fast device with a large and sharp OLED screen in tow, as well as a generous 6 gigs of memory, a... not-so-great 64 gigs of internal storage space, a decent 3,300mAh battery, and a versatile triple rear-facing camera system. The massive aforementioned discount includes $300 instant savings and an extra $15 a month for two years as bill credit, mind you, which will leave you having to cough up just $2.50 every 30 days.
Unsurprisingly, you're looking at saving far less if you choose to pay the full price of the phone upfront, even if you don't have a problem also activating it on Sprint right off the bat. Available in a single Aurora Black paint job, the LG V40 ThinQ combines a Gorilla Glass 5 back with an aluminum frame for a super-premium overall build, although the excessively wide notch significantly reduces the handset's aesthetic appeal.
One not-so-great thing you should know about Sprint's LG V40 is that the carrier hasn't delivered an official Android Pie update yet, which is pretty disheartening, not to mention incredibly annoying.
