LG G2 now available from T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T

lg-g2

The LG G2 is now available in the US and can be purchased from T-Mobile, Verizon and AT&T. Pricing for the LG G2 falls into the traditional $199.99 on-contract range at Verizon and AT&T, while T-Mobile customers will have to drop  $603.99  to purchase the phones outright or pay the $99 down-payment with monthly installment plan.

There has not been a whole log of fanfare around the LG G2 since it was unveiled last month, but we’d like to point out that this phone is currently the best spec’d Android device on the market. The LG G2 features a 2.26GHz quad-core Snapdragon 800 processor, 2GB RAM, 5.2-inch 1080p IPS display with dedicated graphic RAM, 16GB/32GB of storage, 13-megapixel rear camera with optical image stabilization, 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera and a 3,000mAh battery all wrapped up inside a 138.5 x 70.9 x 8.9mm frame.

Are you buying the LG G2 today or are you still holding out to see what the next Nexus will offer?

    No thanks I’ll stick with the king of cell phones my HTC ONE

  • Eli Gaffke

    If it had expandable memory, and removable battery. More interested in the new Sony.

    • Arthur

      This should have the better display than the Sony and better battery life but LG’s skin is much heavier than Sony’s.

      I will be waiting for the next Nexus before upgrading.

    • Droid Sam

      The Sony Xperia Z1 does not have a removable battery. It is really needed when they are cramming 3000 mAh batteries in these new phones. If the HTC One and SGS4 can get nearly a full day with 2300 mAh (I can go from 6:00am until 8:00pm with medium to heady usage on a single charge with my One), the G2 should be able to last at least 3-4 hours.

      Xperia Z1 looks awesome. I think its my next phone, since the 16 gigs of storage on a nexus doesn’t do it for me as I’m not big on the whole cloud thing. And no one knows their way around a camera like Sony does.

  • dan

    1 reason I will not own the G2. I owned a G2x.

    LG killed my interest in future G series phones with how they handled the G2x.

    • Jimmy_Jo

      You can’t look at a 2 year old phone for the only reasons not to be interested in a new phone. EVERY company has wins and losses

  • LukeT32

    I am going on lunch to pick one up. The Gnex is getting retired.

    • Droid Sam

      Take an early lunch and pick it up now! Let us know how you like it.

      • LukeT32

        I did go early :D

        Got it about an hour ago. The phone feels awesome and already have it rooted. lol The LG skin is weird coming from CM10 on my Gnex, but nothing a few days of usage can’t fix. I really enjoy the buttons on the back and the tap to wake up. Buying it off contract wasn’t fun but I am happy with the purchase.

        • www.phonewbie.com

          Lol @ buying contract wasnt fun. glad. I am glad you’re happy with it.

    • www.phonewbie.com

      Yes, please let us know. My question is how heavy and useful, it at all, is LG’s skin? Thanks in advance.

      • LukeT32

        It feels slightly lighter then my Gnex with the OEM extended battery. The LG Skin isn’t bad….. hopefully CM will have a rom out shortly. :)

  • bruce080

    My Gnex needs to be retired as well. I’m trying to decide between picking up the LG G2 and swapping my Gnex for a Galaxy S III and waiting for the next Nexus device. What do you guys think?

    • clocinnorcal

      Wait for the next Nexus ;)

  • surethom

    Very nice but dont like the back buttons, so Roll on the Nexus 5 with very thin bezels 5″ screen, with hopefully fantastic camera in daylight & very good in low light?

  • Nathan D.

    like the specs, not so much the skin android and big display, wish it was less the 5 inches big.

  • Robairto

    just spent some time with it. I can see how a lot of people will like it because it has a beautiful screen, very small vessels, and is fast and smooth. That said the speakers in no way live up to the HTC One speakers, and the on screen buttons are absolutely horrid taking up so much screen space. I find all of the extra tapping maddening. I can’t stand them. If HTC One sound quality in speakers doesn’t matter to you, or lack of an SD card, or you don’t mind super ugly screen wasting on screen buttons, then this might be a good phone for you. I did forget to say that the camera and video looks to be top notch, very well done in that area.

    • LukeT32

      You don’t like on screen buttons?

      Everything but the Galaxy line will have on screen. That is what android is moving to

      • Robairto

        I know I might be screwed, but on screen buttons in their current form are just a pain in the behind. They are not sufficient, and they are not beautiful. It is not that I am opposed to the idea of an on screen button completely, it is this current form that just turns my stomach. We are supposed to be improving things and how anybody could think having button’s on screens taking up real estate and having to push a button to bring up and activate hey button is beyond me.if you have ever used the wave launcher application or pie control buttons either one of those two types of options would be light years beyond these but ugly any ficient things that everybody seems to want to go to simply because it’s different. I do understand that the casual user really won’t care about having to tap the screen to bring up a button in order to push it, but it just kills me as a heavy user knowing that many manufacturers are trying to force me into having to buy something like this. right now, it looks like my last hope for this go round of new releases hinges on the HTC max. So I will keep my fingers crossed.

        • LukeT32

          I used the pie controls briefly on CM10 and wasn’t too impressed. I guess I have had software buttons for the last few years so I am used it. It makes the bottom bezel smaller and during video play back they disappear and don’t take up screen space.

  • mikef3j

    Did the lunch time thing too. The back buttons take a bit to get used to but that’s OK. My GNex was/is a great phone. The G2 is not much bigger, definitely thinner and feels good in the hand. Very glad I made my purchase.

    I was also running CM10 on my GNex was well.

    Life is Good, thank you LG…

    • LukeT32

      Agreed. 20 hours later I am glad I made the purchase.

  • BW

    This looks like an awesome phone, but I’m going to stick w/my G Pro for now. I switch between that and a non-Android. I really like my G Pro since it has an awesome screen AND removable storage & battery. I don’t use the removable battery, but I DO use the expandable storage for all media.
    My non-Android doesn’t have expandable storage (albeit 32gb internal) or removable battery and I do just fine w/out those; I just prefer to have the storage option if I have the choice.

    my friend’s step-sister makes $87 every hour on the computer. She has been out of work for 8 months but last month her pay was $20841 just working on the computer for a few hours. Continue >>>>> http://www.jobs25.com

      That’s awesome, what a fantastic way to make money. Except if that fictitious person is making money from home she isn’t really out of work. Since androidandme took on all this advertising, isn’t there a way to put an end to these shit spam comments?

    Waiting for that Nexus 5.
