LG has teamed up with Amazon Prime, offering 4 different smartphones at a discount price for customers who will see advertisements on their lock screen. Amazon has already teamed up with Motorola, Alcatel, and Nokia but LG is the first high quality phone company to be included in this program.
Known as Amazon’s Prime Exclusive Phone program, phones are usually discounted around $60 less than what they are usually. This does mean that the consumer would have to look at ads on their lock screen, but for good quality phones many people are viewing this program as a win.
