Even if you don’t want to buy Android powerhouses shortly after their launch, or can’t afford them right away, the usual onslaught of spring flagships from Samsung, HTC or LG comes with stellar discounts on old models, so everyone gets their wishes fulfilled.
There’s clearly no shame in going the Galaxy S6, HTC One M9 or LG G4 route these days, as all three 2015 heavyweight contenders still have plenty of fight left in them. The G4 in particular feels like a smart purchase for folks on the fence about its redesigned, modular successor, with its genuine leather back capable of turning a lot of heads, and that 5.5-inch Quad HD screen a symbol of top-shelf sharpness to this day.
Nothing about the LG G4 truly seems outdated, though, with a hexa-core Snapdragon 808 processor, 3GB RAM, expandable 32GB storage, fast-charging 3,000 mAh battery, as well as 16 and 8MP cameras in tow.
The phone even runs Android 6.0 Marshmallow around the world, including on essentially all major and semi-major US carriers, so being able to get it from top-rated eBay seller Yapper Wireless for just $275 is quite a treat.
This is arguably the unlocked version’s lowest price ever, down from $290 recently, and you’re promised nationwide support, both on GSM and CDMA networks, starting with AT&T, T-Mobile, Verizon and Sprint.
Better yet, you’re apparently also offered an “LG US warranty”, plus free shipping and handling, with sales tax only charged in New Hampshire. Oh, and Yapper Wireless can deliver the LG G4 internationally too, but at an extra cost.
