Unlocked LG V35 ThinQ scores some decent discounts at a couple of US retailers
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.
