When the LG G8 ThinQ scored a rating of 3.5 out of 5 stars in our review this past April, it did so largely in part due to its price at the time. Stacking the phone up to comparable devices in the same range as its regular price of $850, it doesn't fare as well as it should. It has a sleek look, average battery life, and a gorgeous display, though reviewer Andrew Martonik notes that the camera and LG's software could both use a bit of an upgrade for such a high cost. Luckily, Verizon has a buy one, get one free deal on the device right now that lets customers score two for the price of one.
Of course, as with any carrier offer, there are some terms and conditions to consider, with the biggest being that you must add a new smartphone line on any Unlimited plan to your account when you're purchasing the two devices to claim this discount. You're eligible whether you're already a customer or just now switching to Verizon, though it's important to note that you won't see the full discount at checkout. Instead, you'll recieve a discount on your monthly bill for 24 months to cover the cost of the second device.
If you don't want two of the same phone, you could choose to buy an LG V50 ThinQ as the second device instead, or forget the LG G8 ThinQ and buy two of the V50 ThinQ devices. It's up to you, though there's a maximum savings of $840. You'll be required to pay the remainder if you choose to purchase the more-expensive V50 ThinQ phone.
This model of LG's G8 ThinQ smartphone is unlocked and can be used on all major U.S. carriers. It's packed with 128GB storage, a Snapdragon 855 Octa-Core processor, 6GB of RAM, and runs Android 9.0 Pie with the ability to upgrade as future software becomes available. It's also equipped with dual rear 16MP+12MP cameras, one of which is "ultra-wide", as well as a front-facing 8MP camera and a 6.1-inch QHD+OLED display.
