The V40 ThinQ might be LG’s latest flagship, but do not forget about the G7 ThinQ and V35 ThinQ. It is also worth remembering that the two aforementioned smartphones work on Google’s Project Fi service, where they are available for $200 off their regular prices.
That means the G7 gets knocked down to $549, while the V35 goes for $699. Those are solid prices for phones which pack flagship-level internals for 2018, such as Quad HD+ displays, dual rear cameras, the Snapdragon 845 chipset, at least 4GB of RAM, and at least 64GB of storage.
If you buy either the G7 or V35, Google also throws in $150 worth of Project Fi credit. You must activate either smartphone within 30 days of it being shipped and remain active for 30 consecutive days within 60 days of device shipment to get the credit. You should see the credit on your bill 45 to 60 days after activation.
As for the $200 discount, you must activate full Fi service within 30 days of device shipment to get the discount. Otherwise, Google charges you the difference between the full price and the discounted price.
Google did not say when the promotion for the G7 and V35 will end. Either way, you can pick up both phones at the links below.
