LG G5 Price slashes to less than 200$ ahead of thanks giving day
LG and other smart mobiles leading companies are slashed the price ahead of the major event in developed countries.
India, 18 December 2017 -- The G5 should have been one of the most innovative flagships launched by LG, but the phone quickly turned into a big disappointment. The “modular” aspect of the LG G5 wasn't as appealing as the South Korean company thought it would, and so the flagship didn't sell that well.
Still, when a flagship drops to less than $200 after just one year, it becomes as interesting as the new high-end smartphones. LG G5 is now on sale for just $199 on eBay, less than 55% off the MRSP.
Even Amazon has the unlocked version of the LG G5 on sale for $249.99, so the eBay deal is even better. It's worth pointing out the eBay seller offers the T-Mobile version of LG G5 (32GB), which means it will only work on GSM carriers in the US like AT&T and MetroPCS.
The smartphone will not work on Verizon and Sprint, so if these are among your favorite carriers, then you should skip the deal. Finally, the T-Mobile LG G5 comes in silver (sorry, no gold) and shipping is free in the US.
The LG G5 wasn't quite the success LG hoped it would be. The phone's modular functionality, the primary selling point, never really took off. It didn't help that the phone was fairly expensive when it launched, hovering around $600-700 in the United States. The T-Mobile G5 (H830T) is now just $224.99 on eBay, which is $30-80 off what other stores are charging for the unlocked US model.
If you need a refresher, the G5 has a Snapdragon 820 processor, a 5.3" 1440p IPS display, 32GB of storage, and 4GB of RAM. It also has a removable battery and supports microSD expansion. As mentioned above, this is the T-Mobile variant, but it will work on other GSM networks too (AT&T, MetroPCS, etc).
For the price, I would say the G5 is a good buy. This T-Mobile model is even supported by LineageOS, so if you want more recent software (it ships with Android 7.0), you can go that route.
