The LG G5 was LG's flagship device for 2016. Currently the unlocked variant, model number LG G5 RS988, is being sold for $299.99, a discount of 40% off the regular price by NewEgg Flash.
The LG G5 features the following:
- 5.3" IPS Quantum QHD Display with 554 ppi
- Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 820 Processor with 2.15 GHz Quad-Core Custom 64-bit Qualcomm Kryo
- 16 MP f/1.8 main camera with a 8 MP selfie camera

- Full USA warranty
Given the frequencies that this phone operates on, it is fully compatible with both Verizon and Verizon MVNO's as well as T-Mobile and T-Mobile MVNO's. There is limited support for AT&T and AT&T MVNO's and virtually no support for Sprint. You can see the full list of networks that the phone supports at the following url frequencycheck.com. (Updated: An AT&T variant is available for $309.99 via BH Photo.)
At a price of $299.99 the phone is currently selling for $30 cheaper than anywhere else online, making this a good deal for those in the market for a new phone.
Given the phones relatively small battery size, you may want to consider picking up a spare battery if you're a heavy user.
The unlocked 32GB LG G5 will only be available at the price of $299.99 until May 10th unless it sells out sooner, so if you are interested, head on over to Newegg Flash before it's gone.
Joe is the founder of BestMVNO.com. He started BestMVNO in 2013, because like many of you, he was unhappy with the high price he was paying his wireless provider for cell phone service. After researching how to cut costs on his phone bill, he came across the terms 'MVNO' and 'prepaid wireless', and learned there was a way he could keep using his favorite network without having to pay a premium price for it. Since then, through BestMVNO.com, Joe has been sharing his research about MVNOs and prepaid wireless so that others can learn how to save money on their own phone bills. Joe's current provider is T-Mobile Prepaid. For inquiries Contact JP
