Thinking of grabbing the LG G5 upon its release? Last we checked, pretty much all the major carriers have confirmed that they will be carrying the handset. Pricing has yet to be determined, but given that this is a flagship, we’ll probably be looking at flagship prices around the $600-$700 mark (we’re just guessing).
Now if you don’t like the idea of having to pay so much for a phone, you might be interested to learn that T-Mobile has recently given the LG G4 a pretty hefty price cut. For those unfamiliar, the LG G4 was launched last year and is basically the predecessor to this year’s LG G5. The price of the phone used to be $600, but T-Mobile has since discounted it to $350.
Note that T-Mobile is not alone in their deal. AT&T and Verizon have similar discounted the LG G4 to an even cheaper $300, but if you prefer T-Mobile’s service and coverage than maybe the extra $50 might be the price you’ll have to pay to get the phone off them. The LG G4 is a pretty decent handset based on our review.
However it does come with relatively old hardware, an old design, and it also lacks the modular components which is one of the key features of the LG G5. However if you’re after a decent phone for a decent price, then maybe the LG G4 could be worth considering.
