T-Mobile Discounts LG G6 By $150, Throws In Free Google Home And G Pad X Tablet


The new G6 from LG is a really good Android phone in its own right, but if you were on the fence, T-Mobile and LG have a pair of offers that you might find too good to refuse. Starting with T-Mobile, the spunky "uncarrier," as it likes to call itself, is offering the LG 6 for $20 per month for 24 months, plus a $20 down payment. That breaks down to $500, versus the phone's $650 MSRP.

So right off the bat you're set to save $150 on the G6. To sweeten the pot, T-Mobile is throwing in a free LG G Pad X 8.0 tablet, which it normally sells for $240 ($10 per month for 24 months). Tablets are not as popular as they once were, but it is still a nice inclusion at no extra cost. If nothing else, you could gift it to a friend or family member, or hawk the thing on eBay or Craigslist.

On top of the discount and free tablet, LG is running a separate promotion in which G6 buyers can claim a free Google Home smart speaker. That's another $129 value. If you're keeping count, that is $150 saved on the phone itself, a $240 tablet, and a $129 smart speaker for a grand total of $519 in saved money and free goodies combined.

The pot gets even sweeter if you're into mobile gaming. Yet another promotion tied to LG's latest flagship phone is its LG G6 Game Collection offer. Through that promo, you can get up to $200 towards in-app game credits on Google Play. The total value of the deal depends on which games interest you. For example, LG offers a "Vault of Coins" for Temple Run 2 and a "Nice Pile of SimCash" for SimCity BuildIt, to name two examples. You can check out the rest of the in-app offers here.

We're not quite as enthralled with the G6 as we are Samsung's Galaxy S8 and S8+ handsets. However, the reduced cost and free goodies combine to make a strong argument in favor of the G6. As a refresher, the G6 wields a gorgeous 5.7-inch QHD+ IPS display powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 SoC and 4GB of RAM. It also has 32GB of built-in storage (expandable via microSD), 5MP front camera, 13MP rear camera, a bevy of sensors, and a 3,300 mAh non-removable battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support.
