Prime Exclusive

LG has been in the spotlight lately concerning their display in the Pixel 2 XL so it will be interesting to see how these Prime Exclusives fare.

Amazon Prime Exclusive smartphones are a good way for some users to save money on a smartphone. These Prime Exclusive smartphones have one caveat to them: ads. In exchange for saving some money on the phone, you agree to have ads served to you on the lock screen and notification shade. As annoying as it sounds, it’s really not all that bad. Of course, it’s not for everyone, but if you’re on a budget it’s a good way to go. Amazon announced that they’re expanding their lineup with the addition of the following LG products.
