Want a notch-less phone? Walmart drops price of the LG V35 ThinQ by $150

Julian Chokkattu/Digital Trends

The release of the iPhone X has set ablaze a screen feature we often see on smartphones nowadays — the notched display. Although it has become increasingly popular, there is still a great number of high-end models that cater to those who are not a fan of this screen craze, such as the LG V35 ThinQ. Walmart currently has a deal on the unlocked version that lets you have it for $750 — a cool cut from its original price of $900.

Getting this phone means having no commitments to any particular carrier. This is a plus point for frequent international travelers as opting to use a local SIM card is way less expensive than the roaming fees charged by cellular operators. It also costs lower than the accumulated monthly lease payments when buying from a chosen provider.


In terms of design, LG got it right with the V35. Its aluminum body is wrapped in glass, giving it a simple and elegant look that matches Apple and Samsung’s aesthetics. Skimpy, notch-less bezels surround the 6-inch screen with an aspect ratio of 18:9 and a display resolution of 2,880 x 1,440. Colors are accurate and well saturated, blacks are deep, and viewing angles are on-point.

This smartphone runs on a powerful Snapdragon 845 chip from Qualcomm paired with 6GB of RAM. From streaming video on Netflix and YouTube to multitasking, it can handle all tasks with ease. Graphics-intensive games like PlayerUnknown’s Battlegrounds: Mobile and Final Fantasy XV also perform like a champ. It’s safe to say that you won’t have lag issues with this phone. It also has a storage capacity of 64GB to accommodate your multimedia files and apps, but if you find yourself needing more space, there’s a microSD card slot (expandable up to 2TB) to make up for that.

Its dual-camera system is also impressive — the primary lens is designed with image stabilization technology for photos and videos, while the secondary camera is built to capture wide-angle shots of up to 107 degrees. Photos generally have vivid colors and strong details, although there’s a noticeable downgrade when shooting in low-light conditions.

Other features you’ll love are the superb audio quality with support for surround sound and a 3,300mAh battery which provides enough power for a full day of heavy usage.

Without a doubt, the LG V35 ThinQ is an excellent smartphone that can keep up with the competition in almost every way. We even gave it an 8-out-of-10 rating in our review last year. Score the unlocked black version today on Walmart at a discounted price of $750.

Walmart drops the price of the Google Home smart speaker by 23% for Columbus Day
google home smart speaker walmart discount mutemic 1500x1000

Remember back in the day when a fully automated home was the stuff of science fiction? Well, we’ve come a long way. We may not have robot servants yet (we do have robot vacuums) but thanks to smart speakers, you can now switch on a light, play your favorite songs, and even order pizza through voice command. Nowadays, Siri, Google Assistant, and Alexa have become an integral part of the American household just as much as pets. One of the best smart home speakers is the Google Home, and right now you can order it on Walmart for
only $99
this Columbus Day -- $30 off its usual $129 price tag.

The Google Home normally comes in white with a grey base, but for a few more bucks you can get it in orange, purple, or teal fabric. The flat top is touch-sensitive and lights up with multi-colored dots when you summon Google Assistant. You can also use it to change the volume, play or pause music, or turn off an alarm or timer. Inside the speaker are two far-field microphones that have no difficulty receiving your voice commands almost anywhere in your home. Just make sure you place it somewhere in the center. To set it up, simply download the Google Home app on your phone (available on both iOS and Android) and follow the instructions. After that, it would be ready to do your bidding.
