This Amazon’s exclusive offer has been enriched by four more LG-made smartphones, which the most interesting of are undoubtedly the LG G6 and LG G6 Plus. Members of the Prime can now purchase the most advanced LG phones way cheaper, which come at the price of ads on your lock screen.
LG G6 and G6 Plus hit Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Program. Both flagships can be yours considerably cheaper if you have nothing against seeing extra ads on your screen.
The Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phone program already offer Motorola, Alcatel and Nokia phones at discounted price. However, LG is the very first brand to bring high-end handsets. At the moment, the two LG G6 handsets are the coolest phones to enter the Amazon discounted lineup. But since they offer noticeably higher specs and more sophisticated look, they are sold for a substantially more than the other phones. The original LG G6 costs $399.99, whereas for the G6 Plus model you will be charged $499.99. Although the G6 is subject to only $50 discount, note that the G6 Plus is offered something $200 cheaper than the version without ads.
The discussed discount comes at the price of the Amazon ads that are displayed only on the lock screen. So they shouldn’t disturb your everyday usage noticeably. In addition, those familiar with the topic knows that Amazon has been doing a similar thing with Kindle lineup, which regardless the lock screen ad-based discount policy, seems to enjoy much of a market interest.
For those who are not familiar with the phones, the LG G6 is the LG flagship offering for 2017. Dressed in an IP68-rated body shell, the device houses a massive and incredibly sharp 5.7-inch QHD Plus FullVision display with 18:9 aspect ratio. Powered by a quad-core Snapdragon 821 processor coupled with 4GB RAM, the device provides its users with smooth Android 7.0 Nougat. As for optics, they are represented by a 13MP standard and 125 degree wide-angle primary cameras with LED flash, additionally supported by a 5MP selfie snapper. When it comes for the LG G6 Plus, it’s basically identical to the standard model, with the only difference lying in storage capacity. The G6 Plus hides 128GB of built-in storage, instead of 32GB found in the G6.
LG’s other two models are the LG Q6 and LG X Charge. Both phones are less-expensive offerings. The former is sold for $229.99, including a $70 discount, whereas the latter is sold for $149.99 instead of the regular $199.99. These are also some great deals and the Charge X seems to be a real bargain, especially when we take into account its generous 4,500 mAh batter that is promised to last for several days on a single charging. No matter which phone you will eventually decide to buy, all of them are worth the money, and lock screen ads are a particularly painful inconvenience to deal with in order to score such discounts.
