A software glitch on the Amazon website caused the price of the LG G4 to plummet down to less than 1 pence.
During the Amazon prime deals yesterday, one keen-eyed Reddit user spotted the fault and plenty of people flocked to the site to take advantage. The device usually sells for over $600 in the United States (£490), which should make them all feel pretty good about themselves.
So apparently you can buy the LG G4 for 1 cent on Amazon right now… pic.twitter.com/fBC7rGq6Gn

Amazon has reportedly said that it will not honour the orders, with each buyer receiving a response from the company that reads ,”We’re writing to let you know that, due to an error in our pricing systems, we unfortunately could not honour your order. Consequently, your order has been cancelled.
“We sincerely apologise for this error and any inconvenience it may have caused. You will not be charged for the items cancelled.”
Ah well. Better luck next time guys!
