LG announced their flagship smartphone, the LG G5 back in February this year. It went on sale in USA in April and was priced between $585 – $688 (depending on carriers). However, an unlocked LG G5 can now be purchased for just $410 from eBay.
An eBay seller named 9tronix is selling the device for just $410. If we quickly look at the listings of LG’s official retail partners like Amazon and B&H Photo, we can see that this eBay deal will at least save you $140, which is huge for a flagship smartphone. So if you’re looking to get the G5, order one from eBay right away, as it can be a limited time deal.
