Sprint's 5G network has been decommissioned, and Tmobile's new network will not support Sprint's phones (except the Galaxy S20): https://www.androidpolice.com/202...st-merger/

So if you think this is a 5G phone, it is not. Quote:

'All of this to say if you own any Sprint 5G phone that does not have "Galaxy S20" in its name, it will eventually lose access to either network's 5G, period.'

Bought this for $380 a month ago. I don't care about lack of 5g. Decent specs for the price.

Bought this phone during the last FP deal ($360). Great phone for the price, massive discount is because the phone's 5G feature will stop working. See above comment for more details about that.

I got that dual screen (Actually triple) LG V60 Thinq from Costco when it was on sale at $500 and like it a lot. It's not Samsung but still a very great high tech device. LG generally makes very good stuff some in par, few slightly better or many slightly worst than Samsung.

9% discount! Nice. Bought two of these from the same seller (at $360, a while ago). They are great phones for the price.
Very happy with its battery life and speed.
Immediately added a 128GB MicroSD Samsung from amazon.

Same Qualcomm processor as the Samsung s10

It does come with its own SIM card for those who are wondering .

Yes plus this phone doesn't work on T-Mobile VoLTE or Wi-Fi calling. In January 2021 T-mobile won't even allow this phone on their network anymore. Someone on Reddit also mentioned that you can't text while on a phone call when using this phone on T-Mobile. I believe T-mobile is probably going to further cripple this phone with future updates? Unless someone can root it and fix everything?

Your better off going with the New Moto Edge 5G which can be found for similar prices or the Samsung A71 or the New LG Velvet all are 5G phones and have the new SD 765 Processor. In a review I read it basically said that the LG Velvet was the best of the 3.

Or if you don't care about 5G the ZTE Axon Pro was just on sale recently for $300 128 gb storage & 8 GB ram or $330 for 256 gb & 12 gb of ram at B&H photo. Also the One Plus 7T is on sale right now too I believe? They both have SD 855 I think? My buddy just bought the Moto G Power for $180 Amazon open box. But the Moto G Stylus is similar too.

Lastly if you search around you can probably find a good to new/mint condition LG V60 for $500-600 range with or without Dual Screen set up. But dual screen can be found too for $80 to $100 ish. Or the SD 845 LG V40 can be had for around $100 to $200 ish now.

Or if you want 5G T-mobile and Sprint I believe is still doing the Free Sammy A71 with a eligible trade in. Get you a used iPhone 8 or Samsung S8 for $150-$200 ish and trade it in for it. Cricket has some deals on iphone 8 currently with port in. I think T-mobile and Sprint are still doing the One Plus 8 for $350 with $350 off with new phone line. You should also be able to double dip with $100 BYOP/BYOD rebate cash card deal. I did this back in July and still qualified for T-mobile Promos.

Wasn't it like $599 at Costco? Also was that for the dual screen set up? I purchased a new LG V60 Dual screen sealed in box paid off for $525 shipped off of a fella on V60 Reddit Sub.

Thanks for the info. Why would the merger not combine both frequencies? Seems like a simple add to future devices. The built infrastructure seems like a waste now on Sprints part.

How much was the SD card and was it on sale? I'm looking for one more 128 or 256 gb good quality sd card for a good price.

I understand that for T-mo users this phone might not be as appealing. Sprint legacy customers however will fully enjoy this phone for at least 2-3 years (I believe that's the min time plans are going to be available - using a Sprint SIM),

Thanks. I think they go on sale for the Sandisk ones at Costco too from time to time?
