LG G2 may launch on Verizon and AT&T in mid-September

0. phoneArena 21 Aug 2013, 08:21 posted on

Word on the street has it that Verizon will start shipping the LG G2 to its customers on September 12. As a side note, the carrier already has a sign-up page, allowing those who are interested in the device to be notified when it is available. However, Verizon has not yet announced any specifics about a possible launch date...

I'll be surprised if Verizon actually launched a non-DROID flagship 1st. Guess they were able to expedite the 'return to vendor' on the Spectrum II.

The Droids just launched though, and they should be back in stock well before the G2 arrives. They definitely deferred to the Droid Ultra/Maxx over the HTC One, Moto X, and G2.

At least Verizon is getting this year's LG flagship.

This time frame sounds legit since the sign up page came out right after the HTC one. Now the real question is, do I wait or buy the HTC One. While I love Sense 5 and the One in general, how can you pass up this years top dog and back side volume rockers. I'm so torn since I've waited so long for the One

Go with the G2. Everything about it is superior to the HTC One. If you have fear of it getting slow updates, XDA would be your best friend.

The only thing that the HTC One has that's better than the LG G2 are those boomsound stereo speakers. Those should be on every phone and tablet.

Overall, I'd go with the LG G2.

The G2 is future proof for awhile. S800, Adreno 330GPU, a beautiful IPS panel, and the 13MP OIS is pretty good. As I said before, LG will suck with updates, but XDA always has ROMs with phones.

I'm not willing to root my phone, and I'm looking at the G2, Maxx and One. Who has the best recent (as in the past year) track record with updates: LG, Motorola, or HTC?

I'm waiting to see reviews of the G2. It's definitely equipped to the gills, sort of a mash-up between the S4 and Maxx but with a world class display. Unless you must have a metal body and stereo front speakers, I'd pass on the One.

Well if the 32GB is more than 200 which i think it will be, then i don't know. Also i think the G2 has HD audio, or studio quality sound. So that could make up for lack of front facing speakers. I think people also kinda blow the front facing speakers out of proportion anyway. I hear them in person and they don't blow my mind. I'm also not a stickler for updates. HTC is the worst apparently and are giving the ONE 4.3 in september. 4.2 is as up to date as one can be anyway since it mostly gives phones the quick toggles.

Rooting seems pointless to me, a couple cool things i've seen. Like turning the HTC logo on the One to a menu button. Otherwise not impressed and i'd rather avoid battery loss with fancy lame looking UI stuff
