Amazon has a great deal in place for the LG G Flex on AT&T or Sprint, offering the curved-display smartphone for just $99.99.
The LG G Flex has drawn plenty of attention due to its innovative design and features, sporting a curved body and a self-healing back plate that automatically recovers from small scuffs and scratches. These are just the highlights of the smartphone, but the G Flex also comes with high-end specs and features.
Both AT&T and Sprint launched the LG G Flex with a steep $299.99 price tag initially, and that was with a two-year contract. Sprint later cut that price to a more affordable $249.99, but it's still quite a hefty amount for a smartphone on-contract.
Interested buyers looking to get an LG G Flex on either AT&T or Sprint are now in for some good news, as Amazon is offering the handset for a substantially lower price. The retailer is selling both the AT&T and the Sprint LG G Flex for only $99.99 on contract, an arguably better deal compared to the carriers' asking prices for the device.
Whether you choose to get the LG G Flex on AT&T or on Sprint, Amazon is offering the LG G Flex for $99.99 only to new customers who agree to sign a new two-year contract or existing customers that add new lines. Those who simply want to upgrade an existing device on an existing line, meanwhile, will have to shell out $119.99 for the device. This price tag is higher than that for new contracts, but it's still a great deal compared to what AT&T and Sprint are charging for the LG G Flex.
As a reminder, the curvy LG G Flex comes with a large 6-inch HD display and packs a powerful quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor under the hood, along with 2GB of RAM for a smooth and responsive performance. The handset also features 32GB of internal storage capacity, a 13-megapixel rear camera, a 2.1-megapixel front-facing snapper, and a large 3,500 mAh battery.
The LG G Flex launched with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on board, but it is expected to get the latest Android 4.4 KitKat soon. LG has already started to roll out the chocolaty upgrade in South Korea, and the update should hit other markets shortly.
