Decided to re-edit this deal to keep it current as I still thinks it's a great deal!!!

All credit to SausageBap for the original deal here AND for the notification about the reduction;

hotukdeals.com/dea…e=2

Queue all the comments about bootlooping LGs in the past.

This deal remains unchanged from Black Friday - maybe they've forgotten about it?!

Downsides to the phone are poorer (by what standard I'm not sure) front facing camera and screen uniformity issues - I was looking at a few in town today and thought the screens looked awesome so luck of the draw I guess.

Personally I think the phone absolutely rocks and I'd get it in a second if I had some cash to pay the upfront costs!

Mainly posting because in SausageBaps deal people kept commenting on the low data.

Basically if you go to the same page (using the link) and scroll down to select "More Deals", then scroll down you should see it there - can't find a way to direct link to it I'm afraid!

Use the same DEALENVY10 code to take £10 off the upfront cost.

Now works out at lower than the SIM free price, and yes LG's are notorious for dropping in price rapidly but I think the airtime is enough to offset this.

Total cost = £796
Voucher DEALENVY10= £10 so down to £786
Airtime @£10/month = £240 so down to £546 (ish)

Also potentially cashback at both Quidco and TCB so even better if it pay out - only looks like ~£20 or so but still better than nought!

Haha thanks

I can only assume it wasn't there before when the 3GB deal was posted/most active - surprised no one mentioned it in the comments.

Would do this so quick if it wasn't an lg as I know the value of. This phone will drop insanely just like the other lg Phones, such a shame.

True, although this is available now lol! I do wonder to what extent it will drop however - I mean £10 for the airtime is pretty conservative and a good deal by any standards - not sure we'll see the handset itself drop to ~£576 for quite a while (in the UK at least).

I was so tempted to get the deal but for very reason as "almirh" said I will give it a month or so.

Voted Hot though for 12gb allowance and network.

Surprised to see this so hot. Would never touch LG again after being bitten too many times before. In my experience they're decent hardware but hamstrung by rubbish software that slows down massively, also lack of software updates because they move on to the "next big thing" very quickly and screw their existing customers.

Maybe they've changed over recent years looking at the heat on this....

Just like sony phones! Just brought a SIM free note 8, great phone.

If no decent sim free deals for the V30 or S8 varients pop up over the next week or so, I'll go for this one I think. Have some heat.

Using a Sony xperia z5 which is running 7.1.1 (upgraded a month ago to September security patch) and still working fine. I am unsure what you are referring to and from past lg phones I owned including the LG g2 which was one of the best phones I owned and also lg g4 which was slick and which got updates too.

The software is the most buggiest from any other andriod. Glad you're enjoying it though

Curious about this:
My G3 received software updates until not long ago - not switched it on recently to know if it still gets them.
My G5 still receives software updates (got one yesterday in fact), and that is O2 branded, who are the cause of them being slower. LG release them monthly for at least 2 years.

Guess that is subjective from each individual users experience. Personally found that lg software was pretty slick though to be fair i have not owned one until the LG g4 while the sony is mostly stock however not as smooth as pure android having owned nexus 4 & 7. In terms of smoothness I would say pure android is number 1 however from seeing friends samsungs i would say it looks buggy and laggy and certainly does not compare to updates v my and others sonys! Sony rules for gpu games graphics, even older sonys kick the s8s butt!

Wouldn't say it's subjective in 3 years of selling mobile phone contract at a busy city center, we do more returns for buggy software on Sony's than any other phone.

Got this phone for my wife, it truly is a beautiful phone. If any of you are still undecided, go for this phone, you won't regret it.

This is now down to £100 up front as a Black Friday special!

beat you by 2 mins

Even though the mobiles.co.uk deal only lasted for three hours it might give you an idea about what the phone will eventually sell for.

Assuming you don't want to wait for the price to come down, this deal is excellent and you won't pay too much for the phone itself. Assuming the 24-month contract is worth £12/month (£288), you'll pay £100 (upfront cost) - £10 (discount on upfront cost) + 24 * 29 = £786 (not taking into account possible cashback). The actual cost of the phone is £498. Well, that's how I justified the purchase myself anyway. :-)

That sim free deal was very good, If I had caught it in time, I'd have gone for that. I'll hold off now and hope it comes up again. Do CPW price match mobiles.co.uk given they are owned by the same company?

I would bite but it looks like LG isn't committing to project treble which means inevitably, this time next year, we're going to a huge drop off in updates. I am not fussed about new features but security holes that are found all the time.

Good deal, especially for those interested in video recording.

I'm seriously considering this, really wanted a Pixel 2 XL but at £200+ more over the contract it seems too much of a difference (more to fund up front). Any thoughts anyone, or is this pretty much one of the best deals around at the moment?

Depends what you're after really. There's also the Huawei Mate 10 Pro on the same tariff for £175 upfront which again...I think is a great deal but a lot to splash out upfront...regardless of how good the monthly payment is. My current thinking however is that if it were the same price as the V30 I'd probably go for the Mate 10...looks like a beast of a phone and love the camera setup.

...and just realised I didn't really answer what you asked lol!

I don't know of any other offer at the moment which has as good a tariff/allowance and phone for below RRP. Could be wrong of course though!

Serious answer? Depends on how long you intend to keep the phone. The Pixel is guaranteed on time updates for up to 3 years, minimum 2 years (Nexus 6P just got Oreo 8.1). If you don't care about keeping current with Android then this phone (V30) is almost perfect; good battery life, exceptional cameras (except front one, it sucks big balls), wireless charging, expandable storage, QC3.0 etc.

If you don't need so much data, I believe Vodafone 4GB plan is still available at 100 quid less.
