Well, now I feel guilty. It was only three weeks ago I brought you word of Amazon and Wirefly slashing LG G2’s price with Verizon contracts to $100 and last week that I told you about the same exact deal being valid with AT&T pacts.
Both of those looked like steals, since the G2 was fresh out of the gate — not to mention pretty darn spectacular, what with its innovative design, slim bezels, Snapdragon 800 power, Full HD crispness and all.
Only it appears that, for a reason I can’t really wrap my head around, the G2 is not selling as it should. Namely, like hotcakes. And now Amazon has brought its price even lower, specifically to… $0.01. That’s right, a penny buys you one of the absolute top Android powerhouses out and about, and the sole string attached is you need to pen a new two-year Big Red contract.
The key word there being “new,” as upgrading customers can’t get in on the deal and will have to cough up 100 bucks.
Now let me be perfectly clear: I’m not saying the G2 is (necessarily) better than Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3, Apple’s iPhone 5s or Sony’s Xperia Z1. So it may not be the number one smartphone out there from a technical standpoint.
But even the most fanatic of Samsung or Apple aficionados has to admit the G2 is one of the greats. Probably in the top three. Worst case scenario, top five. And you’re telling me that’s not worth one lousy penny? Then you must be out of your frigging minds.
