Why in the world would anyone buy the “ancient” LG G4 mere weeks ahead of its sequel’s expected introduction? Well, for one thing, the 5.5-incher doesn’t show its age at all, running contemporary Android 6.0 Marshmallow in Asia, Europe, and at least on one US carrier.
That same operator wants to cut you a phenomenal deal through Monday January 25, taking a “minimum” of $200 off the G4’s current list price with any trade-in of a working handheld. Some phones will obviously net you higher discounts, but based on Sprint’s wording, we presume the least you’re going to get with a qualifying device is two cool Benjamins.
Unfortunately, you can’t actually shave the 200 bucks off G4’s upfront costs, instead having to settle for credit applied to your account within 3 invoices. The good news is both existing Now Network customers and switchers are entitled to the free credit, including for upgrades.
Also, Sprint claims folks migrating from AT&T, T-Mobile or Verizon will be allowed to save 50 percent off their old rate plans, with America’s fourth largest wireless service provider covering up to $650 per line too in switching fees.
Let’s not forget to mention the LG G4 isn’t exactly expensive in the first place, at $456 outright or $19 a month on Easy Pay, offering a robust set of specifications, even by early 2016 standards: 3GB RAM, Quad HD screen resolution, 3,000 mAh battery juice, 16 and 8MP cameras.
