It’s hard not to be swept away by the modular, arguably good-looking and surprisingly inexpensive LG G5 now that a host of freebies and deal sweeteners have been announced, but if you still can’t afford the fresh new flagship, its predecessor remains a great bargain.
Check that, it becomes a greater bargain than ever before, as trusted eBay seller buydig charges a measly $290 with a valid US warranty. The retailer only flaunts $90 savings, but compared to G4’s list price back in the day, that’s obviously a cool few hundred bucks off, at least.
Meanwhile, the best Amazon can do for a similar version is $360, and that doesn’t include a nifty bonus red leather rear cover thrown in by buydig to further incentivize prospective buyers. Mind you, the actual LG G4 on sale (model number US991) comes with a standard black leather back, so you’re free to change the 5.5-incher’s shade and appearance depending on your mood.
The phone obviously ships for free across the US, and can even be delivered elsewhere… for a price. Stateside, it technically works on both GSM and CDMA networks, though if you want reliable 4G LTE connectivity, you’re probably best served by the likes of T-Mobile or AT&T.
And remember, at the end of the day, the LG G4 is still a pretty remarkable Android powerhouse. It’s got a Snapdragon 808 processor under the hood, 3GB RAM, 32GB expandable storage, 16 and 8MP cams, a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, and fast-charging 3,000 mAh battery. At sub-$300, it’s most likely the best you can do these days.
