The LG V50 ThinQ 5G can be yours for as little as $355 with monthly installments
Released exclusively on Sprint a couple of months ago, LG's newest ultra-high-end smartphone scored a massive discount shortly after its US debut, but believe it or not, the V50 ThinQ 5G is available at an even lower price right now from Best Buy.

We're talking a little over 355 bucks all in all, which moves the Snapdragon 855-powered handset into a market segment where its main rivals are significantly less impressive mid-rangers. Of course, you can't just pay $355 upfront and receive the LG V50 ThinQ 5G on your doorsteps with no obligations or strings attached of any sort. Instead, you'll have to agree to a two-year Sprint installment plan and cough up $14.82. 

Technically, it's not even that simple, as you'll end up paying $14.82 a month after a $100 Best Buy instant discount and $22.67 carrier credit applied to your bill. Still, this is an undeniably sweet deal for an arguably awesome device with the aforementioned state-of-the-art SoC under the hood, as well as 6 gigs of memory, 128GB internal storage space, a sizable 4,000mAh battery, and most importantly, a special modem capable of tapping into the next-gen Sprint mobile network.

Because 5G coverage is not great at the moment, serving Sprint customers in parts of only five cities, you can also purchase the V50 for good old fashioned 4G LTE use. At less than $400, it's a virtually irresistible bargain either way, especially considering Verizon is asking its subscribers to pay a whopping 1,000 bucks both outright and with monthly installment plans.

Far from a pushover in the imaging department, the substantially marked-down phone comes with a grand total of five cameras, including three on the back. Equipped with a 6.4-inch P-OLED "FullVision" display (with a notch), the LG V50 ThinQ 5G also ticks a bunch of other super-premium boxes, from a robust and waterproof design to a headphone jack, Boombox speaker system, and 32-bit Hi-Fi Quad DAC technology.

Ever since the V10 boot loop fiasco where I went through FIVE of them... I've sworn off their phones. This looks like a great one, but the last boot loop on my V10 actually somehow fried my memory card as well, which broke my heart. I thought it was backed up to the cloud, but nope. So Never again an LG phone for me, but their TVs are still the best.

the V20 was a fantastic phone, until after about a year it got sluggish and it went 2+ years without a single software update. but besides that it was cool
