On to business. "Flagship phone" is code for "crazy-expensive phone." Witness the latest models from the likes of Apple and Samsung, many of them priced as high as $1,000 or more. Few companies are able to effectively compete in this space, but kudos to LG for trying. The company's G8 ThinQ arrived on the seen in April with a decidedly flagshippy price of $850. That it didn't get much attention is good news for you, because it just got a huge price cut.

2 slashed in less than 2 hours in Tribeca, Columbus Circle NEW YORK (1010 WINS) - Police are looking for a possible connection between two slashings in Manhattan Saturday night. A 55-year-old man was slashed as he entered the Franklin Street 1 train station in Tribeca just before 9 p.m. Police say a man flashed a knife at him and demanded money. The victim handed over two cell phones and $7, but police say the assailant followed him and slashed him across the neck. The victim was taken to a hospital and is expected to survive. Less than two hours later, around 10:30 p.m., a man was slashed on a street at Columbus Circle. The attacker got away.

If you're looking for a decent phone with high-end specs and don't want to break the bank, look no more: LG ' s latest flagship just dropped to $ 500 on This particular deal applies to the phone 's Alexa version, which means it comes with a few Amazon apps preinstalled. The G 8 works on both CDMA

While LG was launching its LG G 8 ThinQ (0 at Amazon) flagship phone , its biggest rival Samsung announced five (!) Its last couple of flagship phones didn't take off, and it still must compete against bigger companies like Samsung, Huawei and Apple too.

For a limited time, and while supplies last, Amazon has the unlocked LG G8 ThinQ with Alexa for $499.99. That's an all-time low for this phone. Note that CNET may get a share of revenue from the sale of the products featured on this page.

The G8 ThinQ is a 6.1-inch Android 9.0 phone with 6GB of RAM, 128GB of expandable storage, a headphone jack (!), USB-C and wireless charging, dual rear cameras and plenty of other noteworthy specs. Like I said: flagship.

I haven't used one myself, so I'll turn you over to Lynn La's LG G8 ThinQ review. She liked it a lot (rating: 8.5), but dinged a few aspects of its camera and flaky Air Motion feature. Those dings are no doubt easier to forgive at $500 than they were at $850.

Two other important considerations: First, this is an Amazon-exclusive version of the phone, meaning it has hands-free Alexa baked in. Second, it's unlocked and compatible with CDMA and GSM networks, so it can work with any of the Big Four carriers and many of the smaller ones (Boost, Cricket, etc.) as well.

Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone

Forget the Galaxy Note 10: Samsung is making a more affordable 5G phone The Galaxy Note 10 is launching soon, complete with a brand new design and a few novel features, but this Samsung flagship will be at least as expensive as the Galaxy S10 series that launched earlier this year. And if you’re gunning for a 5G version of the Note 10, then you’ll have to pay even more. But Samsung is also doing something it hasn’t done before; it’s working on a brand new flagship device that won’t be as expensive as the S10 or Note 10. Moreover, this rumored Galaxy A90 phone will deliver 5G connectivity as well as 45W charging speeds — something that hasn’t been available on any Samsung flagship to date.

The LG G 8 ThinQ is LG ' s Flagship smartphone for 2019, and I happen to think it's a fantastic device. It has a 6.1" QuadHD+ AMOLED display which looks The phone is powered by the latest and greatest Qualcomm Snapdragon 855, and boasts a 3, 500 mAh battery to keep your going all day long.

We might see LG ' s G7 ThinQ successor in a little over a week -- so naturally, leaks have already started pouring out of the company and onto the internet. One of those leaks is a group of images showing the upcoming G 8 ThinQ from every angle, and based on those photos, the flagship phone

If you had $850 to spend on a new phone, you might have a tough time deciding between this and, say, the Galaxy S10. But for just $500, you can get a phone that's nearly as good -- and in some respects even better (see: headphone jack).

Your thoughts?

Bonus deal: Get three months of Tidal's family HiFi plan for just $6.

We're a Spotify household, and I'm constantly telling my kids: You have no idea how lucky you are to have unlimited access to all the music of the world, anytime, anywhere.

What they don't know (shh!) is they're not getting the optimal audio experience. That's because Spotify and most other streaming services rely on compressed audio, which robs the listener of full fidelity. Enter Tidal, the only "major" service that delivers lossless audio -- meaning at least on par with CD quality, if not better.

Samsung insider teases blazing-fast charging speeds for the Galaxy Note 10+ Aside from the screen and battery size differences, the Galaxy Note 10 and Note 10+ will have identical specs, but the more expensive model might also get something no other Samsung phone has: Faster wired and wireless charging.

It's pricey, though: $19.99 per month for the 6-listener family plan. (Most other services charge $5 less.) For a limited time, however, new Tidal customers can get a 3-month family HiFi plan for just $5.99. That's not per month; that's the total price.

After that, of course, you'll have to pay the regular rate. But this gives you an extended trial for mere peanuts.

To be honest, I'm not really a fidelity junkie; I'm okay with the audio quality afforded by Spotify. I'm curious, though, to see if I can tell a difference. If you'd tried Tidal already, tell me: Can you?
