The LG Optimus G is, well, you know, the Google Nexus 4 without all the Nexusy stuff. If Sprint is your carrier of choice though, the Nexus 4 simply isn’t an option for you because of its lack of CDMA support. So if you crave extremely similar hardware, the Optimus G is the only way to go.
If you haven’t gotten one yet, you’ll probably be happy to know that the Now Network has started running a BOGO promotion for this device. That means that if you buy one, you can get another one for free. Since the price that Sprint asks for an Optimus G is $199.99, that means that you can essentially nab two for a $99.99 cost per unit. That sounds nifty and all, but interestingly it isn’t the best deal around if you aren’t already a Sprint customer.
You should know that you’ll need to sign a two-year contract with Sprint for both devices in case you decide to take advantage of this offer – so both the ‘paid’ one as well as the ‘free’ one.
But if you head over to Amazon, you can pick up an LG Optimus G for Sprint for just $49.99 if you’re a new customer. Once again, you need to sign a two-year contract. But if you buy two of these, you’ll be paying half of what Sprint asks – even with the BOGO offer applied.
That’s not true if you’re already with Sprint and want to upgrade. In that case Amazon’s pricing is $99.99 per unit, which ends up being exactly the same (if you get two handsets) as what you’d get with Sprint’s BOGO.
