LG G2 Launching on Verizon September 12, T-Mobile to follow September 18


Specs wise the LG G2 is one of the most impressive Android phones of the fall. If you want to refresh your memory, you can check out our LG G2 specs showdown to see how it stacks up to against the other flagships. It’s the first to launch with the new Snapdragon 800 processor, although as we’re seeing at IFA, many others will follow.

If you’re on Verizon, you’ll have the first crack at the LG G2 stateside; the phone will arrive on September 12 both in-store and online for $199 on a 2-year contract. No specific information on off-contract pricing from Verizon, but it’ll likely mirror that of T-Mobile at $629. Remember that Verizon has the exclusive on wireless charging for the G2, if that happens to be a feature you cherish.

T-Mobile will be hot on Verizon’s heels with its G2 launch. You can actually pre-order right now. Online sales will start September 18, with in-store availability on September 25. No unique features for the T-Mobile G2, but of course you do have T-Mobile’s unique plan options allowing you to pick up the G2 for just $99 and pay off the rest of the $629 retail price over the next two years.

While LG hasn’t had a sterling reputation with US smartphone buyers over the last couple years, they swayed some Android fans with the Nexus 4 last year. And we came away impressed with the LG G2 at the launch event. We’ll do a full review in due time to let you know if we think LG has delivered both on paper and in the hand with the G2.

    Will anyone buy the Verizon version just for wireless charging?…Anyway, I hope the people on Verizon is happy because they always complain about getting devices last

      I certainly wouldn’t, but maybe there’s some poor soul out there with a pathological fear of microUSB that is rejoicing to have the option. ;)

      Well I am on VZW. Was waiting for Moto Maker to come out and pick up the Moto X, but I wouldn’t mind giving LG a shot. Custom skin on the G2?

        Moto X is nice, but techwise it’s outdated. I’m a tech geek that always buys the latest and greatest so I’d go for the G2. For those that are on the fence about going with an LG phone, I’ve had no problem with my Nexus 4. Fantastic phone, great hardware… But I’m ready for something new already lol.

      Good for Verizon getting the phone, but I would not go to Verizon just because of the wireless charging. I have a Nexus 4 and have the wireless charging orb. It works, but it has to be placed correctly for it to connect/charge. Sometimes I have to adjust the placement 2 maybe 3 times for it to start charging. Maybe my opinion would change if it was just a flat pad with more coverage to not worry about centering it.

      I was planning on picking this up anyway and the wireless charging is just an added benefit to go along with the design and specs IMO

  • donger

    Awesome phone.

  • Mitt Romney, POTUS

    LG are almost as criminal as HTC

  • redraider133

    Wow Verizon isn’t the last one to get a device. Awesome for those on Verizon and can’t wait to see reviews of this device
