Deal: Amazon Prime Exclusive LG Q6 and G6+ are on sale for up to 45% off

Many of the pre-Black Friday deals offer great prices on Samsung flagships, so here is something a bit different for those who can’t yet afford a top-tier smartphone.

Amazon has the LG Q6 and LG G6+ on sale for a limited time, but there’s a catch. The retailer discounts the Prime Exclusive versions of the smartphones only, so you’ll have to put up with offers and ads on these devices.

On the bright side, the LG Q6 is available for purchase for just $180, so you’ll be saving $120. The smartphone comes unlocked, so it will work on AT&T and T-Mobile networks, …


Samsung Galaxy J5 Prime (2017) leaked specs include Exynos-based chipset, 3GB RAM

Besides the entry-level Galaxy J2 Pro (2018) that we reported about a few days ago, Samsung is likely to launch another cheap smartphone by the end of the year, the Galaxy J5 Prime (2017).

Well, the name isn’t official yet, but there’s a high chance that the leaked device is a sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime, also known as Samsung SM-G570.

The sequel to the Galaxy J5 Prime is expected to pack a 1.4GHz quad-core …

Flagship on the cheap: LG G6 now available at discount from Amazon Prime

This year, the Amazon Prime program stirred a bit of controversy as it slowly gained popularity and came to the public eye. Basically, it goes like this — you can get a brand-new smartphone for a pretty good discount, but the device’s lock screen will feed you Amazon Prime ads every time you light it up.

And, to clear things up, you can pay an extra $50 down the line and have the ads removed from your phone.

Thus far, the Prime program only had midrangers …
