Was thinking over weekend about buying Q8 55 at $1295, then saw GG email about this tonight. $1100 after discount so I'm happy.

Joined AfterPay so I could buy this - but they only gave me a $600 credit limit.

That was quick - but I want the brushless 36v. That's still at $599.

Not true. My late 2016 LG went into a bootloop not so long ago - is now a brick. It's the second LG I've had which has done this.
25/01/2019 - 12:26
Great price - but I'll never buy another LG phone. Have had 2 now which have done the bootloop thing on me, and become worthless bricks.
