Plus, for a limited time, LG will give you a free Google Home $129.00 at Best Buy
speaker (normally priced at $129) when you purchase the G6. That promotion runs through April 30; all the major carriers are participating. For more on the promotion, head here
LG unveiled the G6 last month at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mobile Analysts got some hands-on time with the 5.7-inch handset at the show, and said it “strikes a blow for one-handed phone fans, packing the biggest screen it can in a body narrow enough to hold comfortably.”
The Android 7.0 Nougat-powered handset props for its dual rear cameras, HDR screen, waterproofing, and SD card slot but said its Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor might lag behind some other upcoming flagships.
The LG G6 arrives as Samsung is prepping to unveil its next-gen flagship, the Galaxy S8, on March 29.
