Ever since the LG V series made its debut in 2015, the company’s G series has become second in command as far as LG flagship phones are concerned.
Many were not impressed with the LG G5 and when the LG V20 came in, the story was quite the opposite. In fact, things got even better for the South Korean company when Samsung Galaxy Note 7, its closest rival in terms of size and specs, failed to live up to many people’s expectations. At the time, the LG V20 recorded massive sales as many of those who would have bought the Galaxy Note 7 opted for the V20, but some were put out with the phone’s asking price.
Well, if you are one of those who couldn’t afford the LG V20 at birth, there’s some good news for you. Apparently, a seller on eBay has listed the flagship at a massive discount, only requiring you to part with a mere $300 in order to get your hands on the phone. But as usual with such sweet deals, there’s a catch. Not unless you are a Sprint user or you have plans to join the steadily diminishing carrier, you won’t be able to get this deal.
For those who are okay with using the LG V20 on Sprint, this is a deal you can’t afford to miss, especially since the phone is all new. It gets even better as the seller says that this is the 64GB variant on sale, but the rest of the specs remain the same. You get a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM and a massive 5.7-inch QHD display screen with a secondary display on top.
The LG V20 was the first phone to ship with Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box – well ahead of the Google Pixel and Pixel XL. On the cameras, you get a dual-lens setup on the back with a 16MP+8MP combination while the front ships with a 5MP lens. To keep the V20 going is a 3200mAh battery that can be swapped. If you don’t like the phone, the seller, who has a 98.2% positive feedback, is offering a 30-day money back guarantee, but you’ll have to pay for the return shipping fee.
If you live in Germany, there’s also something great for you, but only if you are a Motorola fan. Like the LG V20, the Moto Z is a 2016 flagship that has just been around for a few months, but fans in the European country can now get it at a discounted price of just €449. This means you get to walk away with an impressive €250 as the phone is usually available for €699.
Unlike the discounted LG V20 that is being sold via a third party retailer, the Moto Z’s discount is available via the official Motorola website for Germany. You may already know that the Moto Z handset has two storage options, however, it is clear that this discount is only applicable to the base model of 32GB, which is still not bad at all.
Those who fancy this Moto Z deal will be able to choose from a variety of color variants that include lunar gray, black, white and fine gold. Even though the Motorola phone supports accessories known as the Moto Mods, you don’t get any discount on these Mods.
As noted earlier, the Moto Z is another 2016 flagship and as such, it houses a great package of hardware specs and features. There’s a 5.5-inch AMOLED QHD display screen and under the hood, you’ll come across the same processor as what powers the LG V20 – a Snapdragon 820 – and this is paired with a 4GB RAM. The back has a flagship 13MP shooter while the front has a 5MP lens for selfies.
In terms of battery capacity, you get a slightly smaller package of 2600mAh, but there’s support for fast charging technology. The device has Android Marshmallow out of the box, but an update to Android 7.0 Nougat is already available.
