Unlocked LG V35 ThinQ scores some decent discounts at a couple of US retailers
LG’s confusingly named but extremely well-reviewed V35 ThinQ flagship phone is typically sold by AT&T at a preposterous $900, currently fetching as “little” as $830 after Best Buy’s latest discount.

But while we were ferociously hunting for sweeter and sweeter Galaxy Note 8 deals, a couple of other authorized LG V35 ThinQ retailers stateside quietly dropped the price of the AI-infused 6-inch handset to far more reasonable levels.

Unsurprisingly, Amazon offers the heftiest savings, charging $649.99 for an unlocked Aurora Black variant with full support for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon. The catch is you need to be a Prime subscriber to qualify for the $250 markdown. You also have to live with an obligatory “pre-installed selection of Amazon apps” populating every Prime Exclusive phone on sale right now. Thankfully, ads are no longer part of the deal.

If you don’t have a problem coughing up a little extra dough, B&H Photo Video’s standard black unlocked V35 ThinQ will set you back $729.99, free 2017 Daydream View VR headset included, with no “catches” or strings attached of any sort.

Considering the retail value of Google’s refreshed virtual reality shell, you’ll essentially pay just $630 for an ultra-high-end phone with a sharp OLED screen, powerful Snapdragon 845 processor, 6GB RAM, 64GB internal storage space, dual 16MP rear-facing cameras, single 8MP selfie shooter, and 3,300 mAh battery.

Of course, we’ve also seen the second-gen Daydream View repeatedly discounted of late, while the Prime Exclusive LG V35 ThinQ has technically been available for a lower $600 last month... for an extremely limited time.

Stick with the V30. It's not noticeably any slower and it has much better battery life from the significantly more frugal SD835.

Writing now on my V35, it's an amazing phone all around. The SD845 feels about twice as fast as an SD820 in daily use and that was a fast chip itself. No complaints on battery life either coming from a G5 which wasn't a bad phone when you disregard the yucky battery life and partially functional GPS.. I didn't have time to wait. But if you wait until the V40 arrives, the V35 price should really drop to a good bargain.
