Awesome deal if you have T-mobile as your carrier. At this price with quite recent specs, Snapdragon 820 and 4gb of RAM, I honestly think this is probably the best deal for a budget/powerful phone.

The LG brand in my opinion is stained with a lot of boot loop stains. Have had horrible experiences with their phones, they do not last. One stated overheating and died slowly, first wifi stopped working, then the camera etc. Then the next one started boot looping. And the third also didn't last, the radio (modem) stopped working. I will never use an LG phone again ever. I'm done.

96.2% positive feedback seller which is very low by ebay standards. Also, don't forget the fiasco of the latest New (Other) deal where people were receiving used phones from another seller:

Not worth the risk IMO.

Interested in this deal if it is indeed a new phone. I'm a little weary since the seller has another posting for the same phone that is refurbished and for the same price at $119.99. Why would they have a new phone selling at the same price as a refurbished one?

At least this does not appear to be the hacked non-OEM ROM version that some vendors were selling as unlocked. Great price given the specs. The potential downside is the questionable warranty coverage, since the purchase is though eBay.

One of my reps is going on 2.5 years with her G4 with no problems. Amazing camera on the G4 as well as a superb screen.

I wouldn't count on these being new. Doesn't have the original box and it says they're scratched. Chance of getting a flashed international version that won't update properly either

My g4 went through boot loop. Went through loads of crap with lg for them to honor warranty. It overheated day one under light loads.

The refurbished is "Unlocked", the one I posted is for T-mobile only, thus explaining the price difference Smilie

Wow, that's REALLY bad ebay feedback. I'm surprised they don't have their account restricted. I thought if you are below like 97% bad things happen.

New (Other) could range anywhere from being new open box to customer return, so I guess the "hairline scratches" description implies scratches from normal handling. This version is for Tmobile specifically so I don't think we need to worry about the phone being flashed to have the "unlocked" status.

Thank you for clarifying the difference. I might have to jump on this since you are protected by eBay.
