After receiving word that buyers of Amazon Prime Exclusive phones would be refunded $20 in Amazon credit, the retailer has added a new phone to its wide selection of Prime Exclusive devices. The new device is from LG and is available at a discounted price just like others on the program.
If you head over to Amazon, you’ll now find listed the LG K30 as eligible for Amazon’s Exclusive discount. You can buy the phone and have it shipped out today for just $140 as opposed to the steeper $180 price you’ll find everywhere else.
LG K30 is far from the greatest smartphone out there, but it’s not trying to be the best with its affordable price. The Amazon program brings the handset’s price down even further so long as you’re okay with having pre-loaded Amazon apps and services you won’t be able to delete. There are no lockscreen advertisements anymore with any of Amazon’s Prime Exclusive phones, a change made recently to better the experience for customers.
As for the LG K30 itself, there’s not a whole lot that’s special. It’s a budget device and it’s the newest to come to Amazon’s lineup. Like most other devices that make up Amazon’s program, it features modest specs such as a 5.2-inch HD screen, Snapdragon 845, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage, 8MP and 5MP cameras, some version of Android Nougat, and a 3,000mAh battery. Had the phone been loaded with Oreo, the offer would be more enticing, but there’s always the chance that a software update rolls out in the future.
The LG K30 is unlocked to work on major carriers in the United States including AT&T, T-Mobile, and Verizon.
