T-Mobile LG G2 available on eBay for $79.99

UPDATE: The discounted LG G2 is now out of stock.

 

Days after the LG G5 made its official debut, a deal on one of the G5’s predecessors has popped up.

The LG G2 is available from eBay seller pangea_deals for $79.99. This is the D801 model for T-Mobile, and as of this writing, both the white and black versions are available. The phones are listed as being manufacturer refurbished, and the seller says that there may be “minor cosmetic wear” but that the devices are in overall excellent condition and include a charger.

If you do decide to order, free expedited shipping is included, as is a 30-day money-back guarantee.

There’s no question that the LG G2 is a slightly older phone, having been released in 2013, but it was a flagship phone at that time. Its spec list includes a 5.2-inch 1920×1080 display, quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 32GB of storage, a 13-megapixel rear camera, and Android 5.0.2. However, one feature that it lacks is band 12 LTE support. Still, for just $80, this G2 could make for a decent option for folks that want an ultra-cheap smartphone or a backup phone.

    If you have no need for band 12, this is an absolute steal! Great phone at a fantastic price!

      T-Mobile’s LTE is very congested, slow, and not only B12, because I did a test with my old B12-less phone. Now I’m using UMTS and getting faster speeds.

      • get a 4G LTE Cell Spot for your house.

        • allansm

          Where do you get those?

        • guest

          From T-Mobile, but that’s for when you have poor or no signal at home. I have great signal but poor speeds, lately.

  • Chris

    Damn that’s a good looking phone. Looks more futuristic than the G5. Look at the front of that baby!!!

  • Ascertion

    This phone is still great. Not a good option for anyone that needs expandable storage or B12 connectivity, but everything else about this device is great.

    FYI, pangea deals is the eBay store for assurant, who does T-Mobile warranty and insurance. I’ve bought two from them in the past and they looked great.

    • disqus_DFnvXJ7c9h

      really? Wonder if they just cleared their refurb stock. At 500 it seems likely! Wonder why they would do that though. How do you know pangea is associated with Assurant?

    Just to expand upon…
    Other pros:
    Radio, WiFi Direct, IR Blaster, NFC, USB Host, Dolby, Hotspot, Lollipop(Marshmallow thru CM).

    There are being released now AND in the future plenty of phones with lesser specs and half the above stated stuff missing… than this 3yo model.

  • Philip

    Does it say if they change the battery? For $80 I guess its better than nothing for give aways.

  • Sold out

  • BreakingData

    Don’t know where else to post this, but did anyone else get an update notification on their LG Stylo. Says between 23:00 and 04:00 I should get an update over wifi

    • riverhorse

      I heard this days ago… nothing huge… improved wifi calling, etc. I’m on metro, so didn’t get any.

      • BreakingData

        Oh that stinks was hoping for Marshmellow after I read that the T-mobile website is behind. But improved wifi calling is welcomed.

        • riverhorse

          I’ve absolutely filled this phone to capacity, methinks by the time Marshmallow arrives I’ll be on the next upgrade.

    • Joelsky

      i have a stylo on Tmobile.. just upgraded mine now to marshmallow. so far so good.

      • BreakingData

        Mind if I ask how you got it.

    • guest

      Over Wi-Fi if you don’t want to consume your data. Go to About Phone. then to Update Center and check the size of the update.

    Sold out.

    You can also buy a refurbished T-Mobile LG G3 for $149.99

    The lack of band 12 is a big thing nowadays (and the reason I’m finally considering upgrading my G2) but the rest of the phone is great. It’s still way better than most cheap phones, and the 3000mah battery with a 1080p screen is nice, as long as you don’t inherit an old battery.

    You can pay a repair shop to swap out the battery for around $60 though, give or take.

    • disqus_DFnvXJ7c9h

      I know the feeling. I like the size, the feel and the quality of the phone. If it had Band 12 and VoLTE I wouldn’t consider changing it for the forseable future

  • Michael Elkin

    This deal really shows how bad budget and mid-range phones have been recently. They may have band 12, but they pale in comparison to the now 3 generation old G2. This deal is great, if only it was not so big.

    • riverhorse

      Exactly… And the flagships have been nothing to tell mama about…

    • disqus_DFnvXJ7c9h

      These phones are amazing! I recently compared mine to mid range new phones with band 12 and thats literally the only thing going for them. love my LG G2

  • disqus_DFnvXJ7c9h

    Damn it! I got one CPO for $120 in oct and I thought that was a good deal lol. I love this phone. Even without Band 12 my service has been great.

  • stuman74

    I ordered one of these from them on Monday and it’s already out for delivery today. Hope it arrives in great condition! Killer deal for a good backup Android phone. Seems like a Nexus 5 with a larger screen.

  • expat1observer

    I think the issue of band 12 depends on where you live and talk. I just bought the LG k7 just because of that and in highrise buildings in NYC it is a massive improvement.
