Woah, it's good to be a Sprint customer these days. Too bad I prefer GSM carriers.
Nick.B, 17 Jun 2017I will die laughing. S7edge camera is nowhere near as good as G6. You are a person that never ... moreG5 is better (had both G5 and G6).
I much prefer the colours of G5's photos and of course its features (FM radio, IR, useful aspect ratio, removable battery)

In both benchmarks and real time use the Americans were shafted. It's common knowledge by now.
According to Sprint via phone to sells dept. There is no such sell. I was told Sat. 6/17/17, that you have to pay taxes up front and $30 a month per phone. We are really wanting this phone..
The G6 isn't a particularly popular phone, and Sprint is known for signal strength issues, so I'm not much surprised about this flash sale.
AnonD-677954, 17 Jun 2017Which deal expires on 6/18, the LG phone or the free year of service when switching from Verizon? Sprints website may clear things up a bit.
Even if you get the phone for free, the carrier's data plans are exorbitant. An average user only uses a fraction of it's data, either way it's a win win situation for carriers everywhere.

If you look at Geekbench scores, the S7 Edge S820 has a lower score compared to the G6. And if you look at the S7 Edge/S820 battery life tests, they are very similar to the G6, while the scores with AOD on are better for the G6 (despite having a TFT screen !). On the other hand, both the Exynos and S820 S7 Edge loses in all graphics and gaming tests compared to the G6.
Are you saying that the USA people got a mindrange S7 Edge while the others got a "high end" one ?
Which deal expires on 6/18, the LG phone or the free year of service when switching from Verizon?
Deals like these are just a clear indication that cell phone plans are way overpriced in the US. Believe it or not, carriers still try to make some money on every one of their customers.
The total price of the LG G6 at Sprint including 2 years of service at their cheapest plan (2 GB of data for 40 USD per month) is 1080 USD (45 USD * 24).
A similar cell phone plan in my country in Europe is just 11 USD per month. So the total price of the LG G6 + phone plan for 2 years at a local carrier here is: 580 USD upfront + 270 USD for the phone plan which is just 850 USD total, still 230 USD below the "insanely low amount" requested by Sprint.
Not a bad deal at all. But anyone in the states knows, Sprint is at the bottom of the "Big Four". With the progression of best to worst (Verizon, AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint). Not to mention that despite carrying the "flagship" title, LG has already said it's really pulling out all the stops for the V series, and not the G series. While the G6 is a solid device, I've heard reports that it's lacking in areas like the camera, which is more or less a recycled variant of the dual camera setup on the G5.
Make LG phones great again. G6 is the biggest wasted potential of 2017. average flagship camera, everything else sub-par
AnonD-234961, 17 Jun 2017Actually the G6 price is only $120: $5 per month for 2 years means exactly this: $120. You do ... moreCouldn't agree more! The G6 is a fantastic device and at $120 its an absolute steal!
