It’s been less than two weeks since Amazon, Wirefly and Costco have lowered the pricing bar of the fantastic LG G2 to an incredibly affordable (with all things considered) $150, but believe it or not, the first two retailers have just gone even lower.
How low? Let’s just say one single Benjamin can now get you on the Android 4.2-running, Snapdragon 800-powered, Full HD screen-toting bandwagon. The catches being the special prices are valid only with Verizon contracts and only for new customers of the network.
But fret not, all ye Big Red users looking to upgrade from a dusty old Samsung Galaxy S3 or something, as both Amazon and Wirefly charge a measly $20 extra for device bumps, bringing the grand total to $120.
Meanwhile, the AT&T flavor continues to cost $150 through Amazon, whereas Wirefly sells the G2 in Verizon and T-Mobile variations, the latter of which is priced at a fairly prohibitive 200 bucks with the contracts the “Uncarrier” has officially ditched.
And true, there’s probably a bunch of even more spectacular and/or cheaper handhelds coming slapped with an LG logo over the next few months, including one with a curved display and the Google co-manufactured Nexus 5. But the former is unlikely to make its way to the Western hemisphere and the latter will probably cut a few corners in order to start at 300 bucks.
