I know that world is still focused on yesterday’s big Samsung Galaxy S8 event, but the LG G6 launched today at Verizon. And we’re talking full launch, as in, you can walk into a Verizon store and buy one. Pre-orders are done, man.
If the Galaxy S8 and S8+ didn’t turn you on, the G6 is going to be an excellent option. It’s got really good specs, a big ol’ display with little bezel, water resistance, dual cameras, and a premium metal and glass design. It’s easily LG’s best phone in years.
Outside of those thoughts, it’s also a bit cheaper at $28/mo or $672 full retail and comes with a boatload of freebies, like a free TV and Google Home. Seriously, you can buy the LG G6 and Verizon will give you a free 43-inch LG Smart TV, “when you activate a new line of service on Verizon Unlimited and purchase an LG G6 on device payment,” according to Big Red promo materials. The Google Home is redeemed from LG.
Galaxy S8 haters, what are you waiting for?
