LG G2 release dates and pricing for T-Mobile, AT&T and Verizon
Let's start with T-Mobile. Some insiders are reporting that the LG G2 will be available at T-Mobile stores starting September 9th, although the advertising campaign for the model isn't scheduled to start until September 25th. Keeping in mind that the above date is merely speculation, the nation's fourth largest carrier is now accepting pre-orders for the beast in black and white for $99 down and $21 a month for 24 months ($603). The white model can be bought online only. Forgetting a moment about the insiders and their September 9th date, other sources are pointing to September 18th as the release date for the LG G2 on T-Mobile.
Let's move on to the nation's largest carrier, Verizon. Big Red will sell you the LG G2 starting September 12th for $199.99. Of course, you will need to sign a new two-year contract. If you have an aversion to signing contracts, you will need to fork over six C notes for the device, and we're not talking about music.
And just as we were putting our fingers to QWERTY, slaving over a hot laptop to bring you this information, the owl from AT&T dropped off a very important parchment that contained that operator's information about the LG G2. Starting September 13th, AT&T will offer the LG G2 for $199.99 with a signed two-year pact. Those using AT&T Next can buy the phone for $27 a month. The exciting news here is that online sales of the unit begin tomorrow, September 6th, from the carrier's website (www.att.com/g2).

This is a really nice phone. I think it would be wise to wait and see what the Nexus 5 will bring.

One of the rare instances Verizon releases a phone before att.

Truly one of the rare instances. Perhaps the only instance to date?
On other news, I am thinking the G2 is the sleeper Android phone of the fall.

torn between this and the note 3... the note 3 does have more ram and a removable battery but hmmmm

Get the note 3 its much better. Search it on YouTube

But so far, I haven't seen where the Note 3 has OIS for the camera. Nothing like jaggy videos or blurry cam stills. Maybe the blurry cam gives a sense of motion to the pic?
It is a shame that Sammy decided to pass on OIS for the Note 3.

I did not know that.. That really is a deal breaker for me.
11. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5283; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
Me too. There is some sort of digital stabilization, but if that means you have to hold the phone still until the GPS sensor senses no movement, that is a total FAIL.
14. spectre1006 (Posts: 54; Member since: 27 Apr 2011)
dont they have smart stabilization or something like that?
17. Droid_X_Doug (Posts: 5283; Member since: 22 Dec 2010)
That is the digital stabilization I was referring to in my earlier post. What digital stabilization is, IDK.

At that full price its pretty attractive. Sony would be smart to price theirs this price or risk losing potential customers. I'm very fond of the UI on both

This is just like every smartphone from LG. It comes with a nice screen and the newest processor but is always forgotten 3 months later.

Question is, will LG keep on par with updates like other manufacturers? That is the 'tell all, be all.'

Saying the note 3 is better than the G2 is pure ignorance. While its total opinion, it's also so obvious. Go ahead bash the rear button placement and look stupid doing so. Go ahead and bash the UI when it's a cleaner version of touch wiz. This phone has amazing features. The most useful I've seen on a phone. It packs everything a true premium flagship should. Samsung is a great company and the Note 3 in my opinion was a much needed refresh. That said, it's a refresh. G2 brings the first true premium phone next to HTC. I didn't see this coming from LG. I never really kept up with them. Nexus devices and such. Never thought stock android looked good to be honest idk why. That said the nexus 5 will pretty much be this minus rear back buttons, why would I want that.... The button placement is genius and so are the short cuts.
Stop hating LG #nuffsaid

You neglected to mention OIS and probably better pic quality (less noise in low light pics + sharper pics) from the G2, if initial feedback s holds up in a head-to-head comparo between the Note 3 and the G2. I am quite impressed with LG.

LG and HTC lag on updates. I dont know...maybe its verizon's fault.
