LG G2 price revealed, slightly more expensive than Galaxy S4

LG G2 price revealed, slightly more expensive than Galaxy S4
The LG G2 is the new Android flagship on the block and new here means best in terms of performance as it packs the Snapdragon 800 chip, the current most powerful ARM based silicon, but how much would the luxury of owning something like that cost?

The LG G2 price starts at 599 euro for the 16GB version and 629 euro for the 32 gig model. That is of course the off contract price buying you an unlocked international device. The price applies to Germany and chances are most of Europe as well. To put this into perspective, the Samsung Galaxy S4 currently sells for 520 euro for the 16GB model.

In the United States, the G2 will be available on all four major carriers on contract, but having this price it’s safe to assume the device will cost $599/$629 off contract, if such an offer arrives.

LG has said that it has no plans on introducing a Google Play Edition of the phone, running on stock Android, so don’t hold your breaths out for this.

The G2 release date will be before the end of August in the United States, but global availability will vary across markets.

Thanks, anonymous!

it much more powerful, why should it cost the same? :) the additional specs and features are well worth a 15% increase in price IMO.

So Qualcomm 800 costs 80 euros more than 600??

S600 was around $20 for OEMs per unit. Do you think 800 is like $100??

Better camera, bigger battery, better and bigger display, LTE advance, Wifi (ac), nicer desgin with less deadspace, quality (maybe better)....

Samsung S4 is not i same class, maybe S5.

Which I'm betting will have G2 hardware (5.2" 1080p, S800) but in a more traditional nexus body. I doubt Google is on board with the funky rear button placement.

I hope not. I already have a tablet at home.

Seriously? If you call the G2 a phablet, you're also calling the One, S4, Droid Maxx and any other ~5" phone such.

barring the button placement, even the G2 is a traditional plastic body
I really wonder why they ditched a good build/design like that of the Optimus G and replaced back with plastic!

They had a lot of hardware to cram into the G2. The rear button placement allowed them a minimum bezel, and the 3000 mAh battery necessitated sealed plastic construction. And since people continue to buy cheap plastic S3s and S4s in droves, why fight it I guess.

thats true .. but that was a definite advantage the G had over the S3.. the build quality and construction material

As expected, but still LG's prices are not so high as compared to HTC, Sony & Motorola. Sammy and LG prices are almost same. iPhone? Well it leave behind everyone in this...

Good luck with your 4.3 or KLP OS update whoever buys this phone.

There will be a lot of support for this one in XDA.
LG will not make the Google Edition because Nexus 5 will be based on this.

judging from the new approach LG have taken with the G2 then maybe they have taken a new approach with updates

If LG won't keep updating this phone, this phone will be BS.

I guess my wait will continue. Was waiting on Verizon to get off of its duff and release the One now I will pass and wait until this is released.

I want it, but I'm worried about updates. We all know that LG is bad at updates just like HTC.
LG, you better make this update guaranteed.

Only Samsung and Apple are the companies I trust when it comes to updates
Even though there is fragmentation on some cases, you will still get an update and support from the manufacturer since they do not easily forget the consumers who bought an older model

Before end of August on all carriers for release? Now that is a bold statement.... Hard to believe that... Seeing as droids 23, me HTC one 29th. Not much room there... Knowing Verizon's tendency also. Damn I never wanted a phone so bad. Android 4.2 is as updated as things get I don't know why people keep whining about slow updates. 4.3 is nothing new And I'm sure it won't get new till 5.0 which will never exist.... Soooooooo yeah.

It only says US release. It might actually be available this month on AT&T and/or T-Mobile. GSM carriers can launch brand new phones pretty quickly.

It is no surprise that the g2's price is higher considering the fact that it had just been released and Samsung already had a price cut on the s4
