If you're in the market and don't need the most cutting edge device, Amazon has a solid deal on the LG Optimus G for Sprint. The price for this handset has fallen to a single penny on a 2-year contract. This deal is open to all interested parties, whether it's for a new line of service or not. The Optimus G was previously only this cheap for new customers.

The LG Optimus G came out last fall, but it has since been overshadowed by the likes of the HTC One and Galaxy S4. But hey, there's still plenty to like in the Optimus G. The Snapdragon S4 Pro, 2GB of RAM, and LTE connectivity are still totally reasonable for a high-end smartphone. The same chassis was used to design the Nexus 4, after all. Sprint's version of the Optimus G also packs a 13MP camera. The software front isn't quite as rosy – the Optimus G is still running Android 4.1, and the feasibility of a 4.2 update is unclear.

Head on over to Amazon if you're down. Sprint charges $100 for existing customers grab the Optimus G, so there are real savings to be had on Amazon.

    hey, can anyone tell me how much does it actually cost me aftter 2 year contract? as a avarage mobile phone user.

    • sprint/verizon= overpriced

      Unlimited? ~$120 a month with taxes and bullshit fees and lots of dropped calls... x 24 months = $2880.. compared to something like straight talk.. $45 unlimited x 24 months= 1080+ (lets be VERY GENEROUS) an $800 super duper mega smartphone = 1880.... you tell me which one is actually the better deal

        Straight talk isn't unlimited and most people don't get the unlimited everything plan. I'm not defending Sprint but be real here, it's not comparable.

        I'm on a Sprint family plan and each of my phones cost ~57, that's WITHOUT a discount and after getting a subsidized phone.

        So, Unlimited Data (no secret 2 gig cap), shared 1500 land line minutes (hardly use those), unlimited mobile to mobile and unlimited texting. S0, it would cost more for me to buy a Galaxy S3 off contract and go with Straight Talk or about the same.

          I have the same plan. 6 lines. We don't go anywhere near using the 1500 anytime minutes, since we have unlimited mobile to mobile. Less than $60 apiece. That's including everyone having insurance on their phones, as well as the $10 add on charge for smart phones. The prepaid plans don't include insurance as far as I know. So Sprint's contract deal is better, in my opinion.

    The optimus G has jellybean, at least on sprint...

      At&t as well. The optimus g is still faster than the note 2 and in everyday use its as fast as the HTC one and doesn't lag like what I've heard of the s4. And the custom ROM scene is pretty good for the device.
