T-Mobile LG G4 can now be had for $349.99, even less if you go pre-owned

The LG G5 is coming soon to T-Mobile, but if you’re more interested in getting a deal than having the latest and greatest hardware, you should look at the LG G4.

T-Mobile is now offering the LG G4 for $349.99, a $50 drop from its previous price. If you get the G4 on an EIP, you can expect to pay $0 down and 24 payments of $14.59 each. It’s worth noting, though, that T-Mo is only listing the Metallic Gray model at this price point.

If you’d like to save a bit more — or if you like the idea of having a leather-backed smartphone — T-Mo is offering Certified Pre-Owned LG G4 units in both Metallic Gray and leather versions. Pricing for CPO G4 units is $299.99 full retail or $0 down and 24 payments of $12.50 per month.

The LG G4 will soon be replaced by the LG G5, but the G4 should still serve most folks well. It’s got a high-end spec list that includes a 5.5-inch 2560×1440 display and 16-megapixel camera, and its spec list also includes a microSD slot and removable 3000mAh battery. T-Mo recently updated its LG G4 to Android 6.0, as well.

    T- Mobile should carry more high-end and mid-range phones that after few months they become affordable for most people’s budgets.

    The low-end phones are a bad option for T-Mobile and T-Mobile users because they don’t have Carrier Aggregation unless we want slow LTE and possibly more outages.

      I think them offering 24 months of no interest payment plans should be enough help in order for someone to afford a phone

    • AS118

      I agree. Just releasing 5″ and smaller phones with 16gb of storage + microSD would help a LOT. 8gb for a $200 phone in this day and age is just nonsense, especially with amazing midrange phones coming out in the $130 to $200 range on Amazon.

      The Huawei Honor, the Asus Zenfone series, Alcatel Idol 3’s, Moto G, Blu Life One X, ZTE Zmax 2… the list just keeps going on and on.

      All T-mobile needs to do is find somebody to make them a custom phone with a 720p screen and 16gb of storage and a 5″ or smaller screen and suddenly they’ll have a great selling budget phone.

        Sony has the Z5 compact with band 12, and it was at $450 the other day at Best Buy (regular price $499). But I’m not buying it because it doesn’t have removable battery.

        Samsung has the A series, mid range, from 4.5″ all the way to 6″, it is the carriers that are picking them up. Why? I don’t know, but I think in part it has to do with people going either for the high end or the dirt cheap.

  • George Salcedo

    Awesome deal, Samsung needs to make note and lower their prices further. My wife’s G4 is a solid performer.

  • SpaceGho5t

    Im looking forward to the same kind of price drop with the V10 in the future. Still hanging onto my now dinosaur G3.

    • AS118

      Sounds like a plan. The G4 and V10 have band 12, whereas the G3 doesn’t, so waiting for the V10 to drop in price is a good idea, imho. It does have some neat features.

  • TheCudder

    It’s been $379 on Amazon for some time now, essentially the same price considering there are no taxes if purchased from Amazon. But direct from T-Mo is good for those who buy on EIP I suppose.

      Link?

      • thepanttherlady

        Type LG G4 in the search bar at Amazon.

    • AS118

      Yeah I bought it for $350 on EIP. Didn’t get insurance, as the G4 is a Tier 5 device, which means it gets the highest monthly rates and highest deductible. $10 a month (or $12 with jump) and $175 as a deductible starting from March.

      I don’t know about the deductible rates, but the monthly payments are going up $2 for insurance. Not worth it to me, as I’m really good with smartphones and don’t drop or lose them. The last time I lost a phone, I was young and it was a cheap Nokia brick phone.

      Man that Nokia brick phone was cheap to replace. Sturdy too.

  • NardVa

    LG phones drop in price so fast it’s not even worth it to get these phones when they first come out.

    • AS118

      I hear you. I bought my G2 at $500. A few months later? $400. When the G3 came out? $350, just like the G4 is now.

      So that’s how I learned to wait until the next phone is announced and then buy the previous phone when it goes down to clearance prices.

    The LG G4 is a great phone with superb camera and video capabilities. Add a large micro SD card and wireless charging, and you are good to go.

    Took advantage of this yesterday night, I was able to update it to 6.0 after it automatically downloaded it at 11pm over wi-fi.

    It didn’t crash, and it’s not bootlooping, so far so good. You have to pay the tax up front (around $30+ if your sales tax is around 10% or so) and then $14.59 a month if you get it new. The cases at T-mobile were reasonably priced but the tempered glass screen protectors were expensive (although you can have a store rep install it for you for free, so that’s worth considering). There are also 2 cases (body glove and otterbox) that have built-in screen protectors.

    At $350, (almost half the price it was at launch) and band 12 / extended lte support it was almost a no brainer given that my G2’s (sealed) battery is now 2 years old and it doesn’t support band 12. I deliberately waited for the G5 to be announced as I new they’d do this to clear out stock.

    Only things I dislike are the bigger 5.5″ screen and the unnecessary and battery draining 1440p screen. 1080p would’ve been fine for me. On the flip side, the removable battery and the ability to add a microSD card slot are great.

    And this phone is the newest phone that has a high repairability score on ifixit. 8/10, which is impressive given that the only things that beat it are the new fairphone and really old phones that aren’t even available anymore.

    • guest

      Yeah. I’m not getting it because of the 5.5″ screen, too big and heavy for my taste.

      • AS118

        That’s a good point. I can barely handle it myself (especially with a case on it) and I still prefer the heft and handiness of my G2.

        If you’re thinking of upgrading, you may want to wait for the M10 to come out and grab the M9 on clearance. That’s only got a 5″-ish screen.

        Plus, rumors state that the M10 won’t have traditional boomsound speakers, which the M9 still has. Then there’s the “Uh oh” protection to consider.

    My wife’s G4 crashed yesterday. We can’t even get the phone to boot up. Thanks to t mobile and their jump feature she was able to get a galaxy s7.
