Unlocked LG G8 falls to $400 ($450 off) on Amazon

The flagship smartphone competition is always fierce, and LG's phones haven't exactly been among the best lately. It was virtually impossible to recommend the G8 at its $849.99 MSRP, but it's one hell of a phone with the latest and greatest specs for $399.99.

LG G8 in T-Mobile unlocked form is just $375 (50% off) on eBay

In the past couple of years, LG's flagship smartphones haven't really stood out from the rest. However, they are known for one thing: depreciation. Right now, you can get a brand-new, T-Mobile unlocked LG G8 for just $374.99 — half as much as T-Mobile charges. A 50% discount for a new, current-gen flagship is a pretty ridiculous deal.

If you're looking for a decent phone with high-end specs and don't want to break the bank, look no more: LG's latest flagship just dropped to $500 on Amazon, which is a very reasonable price given its internals.

The LG G8 ThinQ is down to $650 ($200 off) at B&H through Saturday

Flagships tend to sell for a lot less shortly after they're released. Indeed, we've seen the example of the Galaxy S10's price plummeting in the months following its announcement, and the G8 is no exception. Indeed, LG's device became available in the US just two months ago, but B&H is offering a $200 markdown until tomorrow night.

The LG G8 is a good phone that can't escape some of the bad ideas behind it

Right now, the dominant trend in flagship smartphone design is one of refinement. Instead of aiming to sell shoppers on the appeal of tricks like modular hardware, or overloading a handset with gimmicky sensors, successful phones are instead trying to achieve the platonic ideal of basically existing as little more than one big screen. That's driven recent efforts like the proliferation of in-display fingerprint sensors, pop-out selfie cams, and the evolution of the notch to hole-punch designs. But you wouldn't know much of that, to look at the LG G8 ThinQ.

LG confirms the G8 will feature an OLED screen that vibrates to produce sound

When renders of the upcoming LG G8 based on leaked CAD models were first circulated, one feature was particularly conspicuous by its absence — there was no earpiece. It's been rumored that the soon-to-be-unveiled smartphone could feature a vibrating display that emits sound, and we now have official confirmation that this is the case.

[Update: New renders reveal all sides] LG G8 renders may look boring, but an absent earpiece hints at big audio changes

LG's recent entrants into the flagship mobile space haven't been the most exciting phones — though it was funny seeing LG launch the V30 three times. Now a series of renders and a 360-degree video from @OnLeaks and 91mobiles have given our first potential glimpse at LG's upcoming G8. And if you've seen the G7, then this new phone will look pretty familiar, though it has a pretty big twist: There's no earpiece. Allegedly, the upcoming phone vibrates the display to produce sound instead.
