Deal: Unlocked LG G6 is on sale on Amazon for just $469.99

Shortly after revealing its new flagship, the LG V30, another flagship smartphone launched earlier this year, the LG G6 went on sale at Amazon. It’s not the best deal you could get on the G6, but it’s decent enough to take into consideration.

The newest Android smartphone launched by Alcatel, the Idol 5S is now on sale on Amazon. The handset made its debut in the United States only last month, so it’s quite disconcerting to see this mid- to high-end smartphone being discounted earlier than usual.
