The LG G5 is one of the most underrated smartphones in the current market. While some might not have been impressed with the modular design, there are definitely those who’d have wished to try the new phone, but the initial asking price meant it was in a no-go zone.
Now, you have a chance to grab yourself an all-new LG G5 at less than half the initial price at just $299.99 on eBay. The seller offering the phone goes by the name Qualitycellz and has a positive rating of 99.4%. Apparently, the phone is available in limited quantity and so far 16 units have been sold. It gets even more interesting in that the seller has a 30-day money back guarantee.
This is without is no doubt a good deal. The LG G5 is one of the best phones that came out in 2016 – specs-wise – but due to the high price tag, a new design language that did not get the attention of many as well as the much more outstanding Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, it has received little credit. The phone comes with a 5.3-inch IPS LCD display screen that features a resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels.
Under the hood, the LG G5 ships with the flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, has a 4GB RAM and 32GB of storage that is expandable via an external card of up to 2TB. The back of the phone has a dual-lens camera of 16MP+8MP, with the second lens working as a 135-degree wide-angle lens. Features such as OIS, dual-tone LED flash, phase detection and laser autofocus are also found on the main cameras. The front snapper ships with an 8MP sensor for selfies and selfies.
To keep the phone alive is a 2800mAh removable battery. Even though it ships with Android 6.0 Marshmallow out of the box, the LG G5 can now be updated to Android 7.0 Nougat via an OTA update.
