The latest smartphone brand to join Amazon’s Prime Exclusive program is LG. Starting today, you can order four LG handsets through this arrangement, where you pay less for devices but have to put up with ads on the lock screen.
The LG G6+ can be yours for $499.99 in this system, the G6 is priced at $399.99, the Q6 costs $229.99, and the X charge is $149.99. Per Amazon’s own calculations, you’re saving $300 for the G6+, $238 for the G6, $70 for the Q6, and $50 for the X charge compared to the full retail pricing of these unlocked phones. Of course you may find them (a lot) cheaper elsewhere depending on whether a promotion is active or not.
It’s important to note that, as the name implies, Prime Exclusive handsets can only be purchased by Amazon Prime members. And while you can already order all four LG devices described above, they will only be released on November 9, which means you have around two weeks to wait for any of them to show up at your doorstep.
The G6+ and G6 will work on AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon, the Q6 only on AT&T and T-Mobile, and the X charge has the necessary bands for AT&T, T-Mobile, and Sprint. The G6+ is just a G6 with 128GB of storage and a 32-bit quad-DAC.
