Four LG Devices Now Available on Amazon Prime Exclusive

amazon-prime-exclusive-lg-phones
Back in June 2016, Amazon announced that it would be selling both the Moto G4 and BLU R1 HD at a price $50 cheaper than the market price. The catch, however, was that Amazon ads and offers would pop up on the lock screen of these devices at random times. For many users, this wasn't a drawback.

Because of its success, Amazon has since added more smartphones to that list of Prime Exclusive devices. It has also removed some of its earlier options in place of newer smartphone models that customers could choose from. To date, the company offers a total of eight devices, all of which fall under the mid-priced range of smartphones.

Prior to today's announcement, the Moto X4 could perhaps be the latest smartphone model you can get under Amazon Prime Exclusive. But today, Amazon Prime Exclusive becomes a bit more competitive as it gives more options to its customers.

Earlier today, Amazon announced that it has added a total of four unlocked devices from LG. These devices include the LG Q6, LG X charge, and two flagship models: the LG G6 and LG G6+.

In detail, these devices include the following information:

LG G6+


The LG G6+ is one of LG's high-end devices that come with a 5.7-inch QHD FullVision display. From within, it is powered by a 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of internal storage. A microSD card slot is available for up to 2TB of memory expansion. On the back of the phone is a dual 13-megapixel and wide-angle camera configuration. Another camera is available up front with a 5-megapixel sensor. The device comes with IP68 certification for dust and water resistance.

Originally, this device sells for $799.99. With Amazon Prime Exclusive, you can get the phone for only $499.99.

LG G6

The LG G6 is the smaller brother of the LG G6+. It is equipped with the same 5.7-inch QHD FullVision display. It also has the same 1.6 GHz Quad-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor with 4GB of RAM but only 32GB of internal storage. There is also up to 2TB memory expansion via a microSD card. The camera configuration on the LG G6 is the same as the G6+. And it also features IP68 dust and water resistance. 

This phone is originally sold for $638 but is discounted to $399.99 on Amazon Prime Exclusive. 

LG Q6

Unlike the first two devices, the LG Q6 is a mid-priced device that comes with a 5.5-inch FullVision display. It is powered by a 1.4 GHz Octa-Core Qualcomm Snapdragon 435 processor with 3GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage. There is a microSD card slot for up to 2TB memory expansion. Camera-wise, the Q6 can take photos with its 13-megapixel rear-facing camera or the 5-megapixel wide-angle camera in front.

The Q6 is available for only $229.99 for Amazon Prime Exclusive members, otherwise it costs $299.99.

LG X charge

The last device included in today's announcement is the LG X charge. This is a device with a 5.5-inch HD LCD display. It comes with a 1.4 GHz Quad-Core processor with 2GB of RAM and 16GB of onboard storage. The memory can also be expanded to 2TB with the help of a microSD card. The device houses a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera and a 5-megapixel front-facing camera.

This device is regularly priced at $199.99. Amazon Prime Exclusive members can buy it for only $149.99. 

These phones run on Android 7 Nougat and are sold unlocked but are still subject to carrier compatibility. 

If you are on the hunt for a new LG smartphone, you might want to sign up to be an Amazon Prime member so you can take part in these deals and offers. Would you be willing to see Amazon ads on your device if that meant saving money on the price of a device though?

  1. Disgustingly overpriced for a bunch of bootlooping LG trash.

    1. I've never had an LG loop. Get over it.

    2. I did, my G4 bootlooped.

      Bootloops are very common with the 2015 flagships (G4, V10 and Nexus 5x) with the Snapdragon 808. The SOC ran hot and LG's mainboard board designs didn't account for the heat so solder joints failed.

      LG replaced my G4's mainboard for free, no questions asked, even though my phone was free (I won it in a contest) and was almost a year out warranty. I'm still using the G4 although I expect it to fail again.

      The problem only affected the 808 based models but LG's reputation was badly hurt.

    3. I've had numerous LG G4s bootloop. Yeah, they've really hurt themselves badly by letting so many different flagships out all over the world with issues that led to bootlooping for many customers - many who say they won't buy another LG.

      Delete
    4. I've never had an LG bootloop either, simply because I've never owned one.

      On top of the bootlooping, look at all the embarrassment LG has caused Google by giving them defective displays for the Pixel phones.

    5. Regarding the repair of the phone, I would be more inclined toward purchasing LG products. At least they stand behind them.

    6. To Dennis:
      You of ALL PEOPLE won a LG G4 in a contest?? WTHeck? LOL!

      My 2nd LG phone was the premium flip phone Verizon sold back in 2003. It had AWESOME audio recording capabilities & was first phone I owned that I could record audio ringtones straight from my CD player boombox (by simply holding phone to Boombox speaker). I still miss that flip phone with soft leather case. I think I paid $299 for it. LOL!

    7. It was a photo contest sponsored by AT&T and LG. The grand prize was an all expenses paid trip to anywhere in the world plus a G4. There were 500 consolation prizes of G4s and I won one of those. I enter lots of contests although I rarely win anything.

  2. Amazon ads never pop up, a tiny ad on your lockscreen is about as intrusive as it gets, i got use to them in about 30 minutes.

  3. Is the Blu r1 HD the only Prime phone that was dual SIM?

    1. Some sites say the BLU S1 is dual SIM but it is not.

  4. The Q6 doesn't seem too different from the X Charge. And I can't even figure out what the deference between the G6 and G6+ is supposed to be.

  5. @Dennis..I was the one that said I never had a bootloop, but then again, I've always just had the midrange LG's, and they are wonderful. I guess I just wish people would stop calling LG phones trash when they aren't. The Note 7 caught on fire which was an actual hazard, and you really don't see people rehashing that over and over. The G4 was a few years back, people need to let that to and see the tremendous progress LG has made..

    1. The G4 wasn't the only defective model released. They repeated this trash on several subsequent flagship models.

  6. I have the X Charge through Boost. Excellent phone. The specs are better than the X Charges offered here on Amazon, Cricket, and Xfinity. It comes with 7.1.1 and LG ux 6.0.23 with the Mediatek 1.5g octacore processor. I really love it.

    1. How is the X Charge with a Mediatek CPU better than the ones with the SD425?

      Delete
    2. @anonymous 7:36.. It's an Octacore, the snapdragons are quad. Plus, those versions only have 7.0, Boost has 7.1.1. They also only have LG's 5.0 ux, Boost's has 6.0, so it has more features, like the G6.

      Delete
    3. The Mediatech MT6750 out-scores the Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 on a bundle of benchmarks by about 10% Mediatek MT6750 vs Qualcomm Snapdragon 425 vs Mediatek Helio P20 (LP4) MT6757

      More significantly, the Amazon and Boost X Charge models have 2 GB of RAM, the Cricket one only 1.5 GB.

  7. Bootlooping is forgivable.

    Repeating the defect on further models and not owning up is not.

    I will never buy an LG.

    1. My G3 bootlooped and I was stupid enough to replace it by a G5. Well you know the story there. Now I own a Samsung. Sorry LG, twice bitten is not a one off.

  8. Are there any phones that will allow me to insert 3 or 4 micro sd cards?
    I know that the dual sim phones can allow one sim slot to also be a micro sd card slot, but that is then 2 slots for the micro sd card, I would like to have 3 or 4 micro sd cards.

    Why you ask?

    Just to store shows or movies or other large files without need to worry about data limits or wifi connection availability.

  9. A big no to ads on my phone. I have ads on my Amazon Fire tablet. I don't like them but I'm not looking at my tablet lock screen very often. I see my phone lock screen dozens of times a day, I enjoy the beautiful lock screen image I use. No way do I want stupid ads instead.

    BTW, I've had no issues with my low/mid end LG phones.

    1. I've always stayed away from Amazon tablets because they don't let you download apps from the Play store. I never understood way they do that since Google doesn't charge anything to have the Play store on their tablets.

      Delete
  10. I would consider a discounted unlocked LG V30 in exchange for seeing Amazon ads on it.

  11. Seems like from what I'm reading, LG had the bootloop problem with their flagships. I wonder if they should just concentrate on the mid range segment, because they make really great phones in that area. I think if they marketed more and pushed more to the masses of people who could afford mid range more than flagship, they'd be really great.

  12. Current LG flagships don't bootloop. It was a flaw in a small number of phones with a certain overheating chip that's long since been replaced. Last year some Samsung phones ignited because the phone was designed with a battery compartment too small to safely accommodate its battery and as a result ruptured the battery. These things happen and then they get fixed or replaced. Samsung no longer makes fire-prone phones and LG no longer makes overheating phones. Time to move on.

    1. I agree 100%, but you'll always get people throwing out that bootloop thing. Definitely time to move on.

    2. Never a dull moment with flagships springing holes these days. Samsung Note 8s freezing now.

  13. The bootloop situation contains a telling account of LG's poor customer service. The phones might not bootloop, but the service situation remains.

    1. LG service repaired my bootlooping G4 quickly and with no hassles. Did you have a bad experience with LG support?
