Six days ago. That’s when Verizon released its newest 4G LTE smartphone, the Android-powered LG Spectrum. This is the definition of high-end right now, yet Big Red only asks for $199.99 in return for shipping it to you (you need to sign a two-year contract though). That in itself was unexpectedly good pricing, especially coming from a carrier that’s gotten us used to $249.99 or $299.99 LTE phones.
But now, six days later, you can get the LG Spectrum for less than half of what it’s still going for at Verizon. Amazon will let you have one for just $79.99. Again, you’ll need to sign a two-year contract obviously, but this is the pricing territory where nondescript midrange devices usually live. And for the same amount of cash, you could be getting a top of the line smartphone.
Needless to say, if you’ve been looking for a great handset with 4G LTE support built in, run, don’t walk to Amazon right now and order yourself an LG Spectrum. We have no idea how long this offer will last.
