Sprint offering buy-one-get-one-free deal on the LG Optimus G [DEALS]

If Sprint coverage is good in your area, now might be a good time to consider making the switch. The #3 largest carrier in the US is currently offering a buy-one-get-one free deal on the LG Optimus G — one of the best devices on their network. Currently $200 with a 2-year agreement, the offer essentially brings the price down to $100 an Optimus, making it one helluva deal you might not want to pass up.

The Sprint LG Optimus G is still one of my favorite Android devices to date, and as someone who owned the Samsung Galaxy S3, Samsung Galaxy Note 2, Nexus 4 and HTC DROID DNA — all at the same time — I oft turned to my Optimus G thanks to its crisp IPS display and super fast multitasking. Nevermind that it’s still running Ice Cream Sandwich, a Jelly Bean update is soon on its way (not to mention Sprint is great when it comes to updates). If that was enough to convince you, hit the link below to nab a pair of LG Optimus G’s for yourself.

    Still on ICS? Another reason to NOT select an LG phone.

      I couldn’t agree with you more! I’m still dealing with my buggy G2X a year and half later! Still no ICS update or fix for constant freezing, reboots and shut downs.

      LG is great at rolling top spec phones to get their names out and sell but once you buy, good luck getting any support from either carrier or LG.

      Never again.

      • KOLIO

        A good friend of mine finally liberated herself from the G2X tonight & got the NOTE2.
        I jokingly suggested the OPTIMUS L9 or NEXUS4.

        If looks could kill………

          Just curious, but what’s wrong with the Nexus4? All updates handled by Google themselves…seems like the best way to extricate yourself from LG’s blemished track record of updating their own devices.

          • KOLIO

            1) Embedded battery.

            2) Non-expandable on-device memory.

            3) LG (Lame Game)…….

            You just described 90% of Android devices. There’s no fighting it. I’m sure it will be 100% soon.

          • KOLIO

            Until it’s 100% on both accounts, I’ll choose an alternative to such phones.

          • Don_SoLow

            I’m sure Samsung will keep removable battery and extended memory for a while since that was one of their own selling points against the iPhone when the GS3 came out.

    • Thunder18

      Korean version is already on JB. Shouldn’t be too long before it hits stateside…unless you happen to have the AT&T version…then all bets are off.

      • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

        Yup! Sprint is (usually) good with updates.

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      What’s wrong with ICS? O_o

      • KOLIO

        Not a thing, but, why start out 1-2 O/S’ behind?

        I learned my lesson w/the MO’PHO.

        • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

          Well, the phone was in development before Jelly Bean was released. It’ll get updated, that’s certain.

          I just find that I can enjoy a phone perfectly well without Google Now and Photo Sphere. I just care about optimized/stable software, and great specs. Next to the Nexus 4, the LG Optimus G is the fastest Android device currently available. And it has the benefit of LTE :)

          • KOLIO

            I get that,as it’s virtually impossible to stay up-to-date on the fly while still in development,that’s gonna happen w/almost every phone.

            I should have stated that a bit better/clearer.What I was suggesting is that if the typical user were to select any phone (especially a non-NEXUS),one might want to choose a phone that is more up-to-date O/S wise,to ensure the maximum best chance of receiving future upgrades within a typical 2YR obligation.

        • Andrew torres

          Ive decided i had to jump 1 OS behind on purpose on my GNex….Not even using JB. One of the App Lock programs i use, AndLock, will not secure the applications i specify. I found that ICS is the last major update it will work with till the Developer fixes the bug with JB….and then that touches on abandoned ware, one subject that gets me fired up currently.

      • moises1204

        Chris there is nothing wrong with ICS, whats wrong is LG with ICS.

    • jralphroman

      Im always find it funny when nerd boys point out that a phone doesn’t have the latest OS. You being a nerd boy I’m sure you know by now almost all Android phones are behind 1 or 2 OS.

      • KOLIO

        From one “nerd boy” to another,I stated as much an hour ago,if you bothered to read all the comments………

        Another thing,your time would be better used to work on your grammatical skills,instead of name-calling…..

  • WhoaManWtF

    All the hate. I am sure none of you have picked up this phone. I have an. Att and this thing is by far the fastest phone out not to mention mine has a sd Slot. But anyways my phone out performs any of your phones even while an os.behind, now remember the performance jump when you updated to jb? Mmm yeah I’m going to get that to and already run circles around the note 2 and all other high end phones. Plus if you’re worried about software on an Android device you need to step up your game and hit up XDA…

    • http://twitter.com/gamercore Chris Chavez

      I’ve actually been looking for an Optimus G for AT&T, it’s just so hard to find. I’ll keep looking. I must have one again.

  • Pistachio

    So do these buy one get one offers require 2 accounts with upgrades? Or if one upgrades, do you still get a phone free?

    • KOLIO

      Per the source link (SPRINT), you’ll have to upgrade 2 lines of service/obligate to 2yr contracts to get the BOGO offer. Might wanna check it out thoroughly, as there’s some language regarding returns that affects both phones.

      It’s actually a good deal, I’d just be absolutely certain that both users like the phone equally, to avoid conflict should one person want to opt for another phone.

      • Pistachio

        Thanks! And yeah. It would be terrible to get a phone that you hate just because someone else wants a free phone.
