The LG G2 Mini is only half an inch smaller – but a lot less impressive on the inside – than its predecessor.
The LG G Flex is not the smartphone we need right now, but it presents some interesting possibilities for the future.
The Galaxy Note 3 is region locked but there’s a way around the restriction. LG’s G2 got the review treatment this week: Is it a good blend of powerful hardware and useful software? And Amazon continues to mature it’s Kindle Fire tablet lineup.
The LG G2 is one of the fastest phones available and has a great camera, but lackluster software and a frustrating design decision hold it back.
Sprint has announced that it is taking pre-orders for the LG G2 beginning October 11, with the phone arriving in time for the holidays.
Samsung’s Galaxy Note 3 has a huge display and tons of power, but how does it compare to the other large-screen smartphones out there?
Just this morning T-Mobile(s tmus) announced that the LG G2 is coming to its network on September 25 for $99.99 down. Now AT&T(s t) and Verizon(s vz) are joining the party, releasing availability and pricing information for their models of LG’s next-generation smartphone.
As expected, the LG L2 will hit AT&T stores starting September 13 for $199.99 with a two-year contract, or $27 per month on AT&T Next. Online sales begin tomorrow.
Verizon, meanwhile, will be the first carrier to offer the LG G2, with its model going on sale September 12, a day ahead of AT&T, for $199.99 with a two-year contract. Verizon is also the only carrier to offer exclusive wireless charging support for the phone.
If you’re wondering why the LG G2 seems cheaper on T-Mobile, it’s because T-Mobile doesn’t subsidize the cost of its phones. So while you’re paying less money down, you’re then paying $21 per month for the next 24 months. AT&T and Verizon, on the other hand, require you to sign a contract in order to receive a discounted rate.
That leaves Sprint(s s) as the final carrier to announce pricing and availability information, but after this flurry of activity, perhaps we’ll find out later today.
The LG G2 will be coming to all four major U.S. carriers, but we’re just now seeing the first actual release date. T-Mobile(s tmus) on Thursday confirmed the LG G2 will be available starting September 25 for $99.99 down.
Before September 25 rolls around, the G2 will also be available for preorder starting September 18. T-Mobile’s Simple Choice plan gets you unlimited talk, text and data with no annual service contract. The only catch is that you must pay for the full price of your phone. So while you only have to put $99.99 down on the LG G2, you must also pay 24 monthly installments of $21. That means the full price of the phone is $603.99.
T-Mobile also announced that the more affordable, midrange LG Optimus F6 is available starting today for $49.99 down and 24 payments of $10.
An earlier report suggested that Verizon Wireless(s vz)(s vod) and AT&T(s t) would launch the LG G2 on September 12 and 13, respectively. There’s still some time for that to happen, and a sign-up page has been up on Verizon’s site for a couple of weeks now, though no release date is listed. Verizon claims its model of the phone comes with exclusive wireless charging capabilities.
There is still no information about pricing or availability of the phone on Sprint(s s). But if you really want to get your hands on a G2 now, the phone has already gone on sale in South Korea.
According to a report, the LG G2 will be available on AT&T and Verizon before the middle of September. Availability for Sprint and T-Mobile is still unknown.
Verizon’s sign-up page for the LG G2 claims the phone will feature exclusive wireless charging capabilities and shows a slightly different design on the back of the phone.
