[Update: Extra $30 off] Deal Alert: Today is the last day you can get the Sprint LG G6 for just $120 at Best Buy

Best Buy's short Father's Day promo is set to expire tonight, so if you are interested in picking up LG's latest flagship, the G6, on Sprint for just $5 a month over 24 months, you'll have to do it soon. That price works out to $120 over two years, a savings of $609 over the full retail price. That is an exceedingly good deal. The promotional offer does have some terms and conditions associated with it, and the phone isn't likely to work outside of Sprint's network. But, if it fits your niche, it's a fantastic price.

Weekend poll: How much did you pay for your current smartphone?

Around a year and a half ago, I asked you how much your smartphone cost. Today, I'm asking again, and very I'm curious to see how much the results will have shifted over time.

When I ran this poll in late 2015, the plurality of you answered in the $400-599 bracket, with $300-399 coming in second. Very few of you paid more than $800 for your smartphone, too - around 5%.

With the Galaxy S8+ and 128GB Google Pixel XL both being fairly popular handsets and both generally costing over $800, I have to wonder just how much of a boost that price bracket will see in our polling.

YotaPhone 3 will arrive later this year and start at $350

Pictured: YotaPhone 2

Every once in a while, a smartphone comes to the market with a totally unique feature or form factor. There was the Galaxy S4 Zoomthe dual-screen Kyocera Echo, and Samsung's projector phone to name a few. The original YotaPhone, which included an e-ink display on the back side, certainly fits into this category.

The YotaPhone 2 was released in late 2014 for some regions, but the North American release was cancelled. Yota Devices has officially announced the next model, fittingly named the YotaPhone 3, at the China-Russia Expo in Harbin.
