If you’ve ever felt like you wanted to buy a brand new flagship for less than half its regular asking price (and admit it, you absolutely have), then the time to act is right about now. Best Buy is currently offering US customers the LG G6 for an effective asking price of $288, which is a total savings of $384.
There’s two catches, though: firstly, the deal only applies to the Verizon variant of the device, so if you’re on a different carrier: tough luck. Also, the actual promo is a $11.99/month for 24 months deal, instead of the pay-for-it once variety. However, both the black and platinum color options qualify for the offer, which is a nice touch.
The LG G6 is something of a return to basics for the company, following the failure of the modular G5. To that effect, it’s a pretty standard device, equipped with the Snapdragon 821 SoC, coupled with 4GB of RAM and 32 GB expandable storage. But its defining feature is undoubtedly its 18:9, 5.7-inch QHD+ screen with curved corners, which made it one of the first devices to follow the trend of the bezel-less, ultra-tall display.
It also features a dual camera module on its back, which sports a 13MP resolution and lets you take wide-angle photos, while its front shooter is a single-sensor 5 MP camera instead (but sport its own wide-angle lens as well). The phone also carries an IP68 certification, meaning it can be safely submerged in nearly 5-feet of water for as long as 30-minutes.
In contrast with this deal, Verizon itself offers the same device for $20/month instead, which works out to $480. Or in other words, this is a pretty sweet proposition, and also one we imagine will be quite popular as well, so if you’ve been eyeing the G6 we recommend you’d act fast, lest it gets sold out.
