  1. @mikejeep - Curious to hear your thoughts on this device after using it for a bit, whenever you get the chance to chime in. Both just general impressions of the device as well as whatever distinction you perhaps can provide in terms of RF performance against others better known devices, both 4G & 5G alike.
  2. Same here, was originally at order time slated to be 2-3 weeks out before even available (and mine's a 256gb version), next thing I know a shipment notification came in email later that night and it was on my doorstep the next day.
  3. Huh....yeah I just tried with my wife's LG G7 line and it didn't say anything about it or auto-equate out the ~$11+ monthly. Particularly interested in doing this for her though because the charge port has gone bad and we've had to resort to wireless charging only until we can get her something else...I'd been kind of looking until this deal came up. @mikejeep Definitely post and give us your impressions with it after you've used it a few days, that will be helpful for everyone considering it too of course. 👍
  4. Just remembered tonight to go back and check on this online via Sprint....still not offering the Trade-up deal there, so still guessing this may need to be a physical store trade-in scenario.

  7. Given the highest level device is an LG G7 (my wife's), and its not on the acceptable list, I don't think we'd be able to do it....but I suppose I could find and call a store and ask to be sure.
  8. Actually going back to my original post it was definitely a different promo. The text came in Tuesday after Easter about it and it does explicitly say 50% off with eligible trade in. And it was probably just targeted at my specific line too, my wife didn't get that text.
  9. Possibly....or maybe they just really only gave half credit for the G8X (keep in mind this is the base phone I have and not the dual screen btw, though the regular G8 didn't have a dual option anyway). Without it being officially on the list of acceptable phones for the 'free' deal though its hard to complain I guess.
  10. Whatever calculation was done, it was done automatically by the system. I checked 2 other lines and no change there (one was a G7). So I suppose they just didn't publicize the G8X, though if they accept a regular G8 it would stand to reason they'd take a G8X too. I doubt they'd credit anymore for a regular G8 than I got though. I'd be curious to see what the system offers someone with a V60 5G. I kind of wish I'd have been able to get at least an S21+ 256GB for half off, its a little hard adjusting to the size downgrade to 6.2, but now that I finally have a Supcase for the S21 I'm
  11. Yeah the G8X wasn't worth enough for that level of credit for me. The funny thing is, I've yet to see or get anything email or otherwise about turning the LG in as part of the deal though. There was nothing about it whatsoever in the box the S21 came in certainly.
  12. Gotcha, thanks Mike....I'd only read the Business Wire article back when the news first hit which really didn't give date specifics. And I was cross referencing that with another release strictly about the new phones (A52 and A72 as well) themselves which touted April 9th release, so I just assumed that the free upgrade was also available out the gate too ha.
  13. Where is it stated the deal doesn't start until the 18th? I've missed that somehow if that's the case. All I've read is that the devices (including the 2 higher end models) would be available starting the 9th - which at least is true for the A32.
  14. I'd recommend it still too, assuming you're good with holding off on 5G. Probably one of if not the best phones I've ever owned in terms of both RF performance and battery life. I'm already missing the G8X on battery life especially as the base S21 even with power saver mode is noticeably inefficient by comparison. Swappa has 2 New In Box ones (i'm sure this is the base version without the extra screen like I and I believe Trip picked up on back the beginning of 2020) for only $250: Buy Sprint LG G8X ThinQ - Swappa
  15. As T-Mo is starting a promotion for free 5G phone upgrades using this model, starting a new thread for anyone interested. Here's some reviews I've found from various sources on this model (or at least comparing it vs the other currents of the line and even one that throws in an S20 FE comparison): Samsung Galaxy A32 5G review: There's more than just progress in the 5G smartphone - NotebookCheck.net Reviews Galaxy A32 vs. Galaxy A42 vs. Galaxy A52 vs. Galaxy S20 FE: Samsung's 5G phones compared - CNET Galaxy A52 5G vs. Galaxy A42 5G vs. Galaxy A32 5G: Which
