T-Mobile announces the LG G5 price, release date and launch gifts

LG took a unique direction with its G5 flagship this year, offering a modular design that makes it easy to swap the battery and add various attachments to the phone that the company lovingly called "Friends". The phone already passed the FCC grunt, and thanks to T-Mobile now we already know its launch date in the US will be April 1st.

T-Mobile announces the LG G5 price, release date and launch gifts
T-Mobile, however, the Un-carrier that it is, will offer it for online ordering a few days earlier, on March 29th, for the most impatient. Those early adopters will have other perks and bonuses to incentivize their purchase, too. If you order before April 5th, for instance, T-Mobile will gift you the new LG 360 CAM ($200 value) and the LG Battery Bundle ($80) that consists of a spare battery and a charging station. That's not all, though, as if you get the LG G5 before April 17th you will still get the Battery Bundle, just not the 360 CAM to shoot your own VR footage.

As for the all-important issue of pricing, T-Mobile offers you to buy the G5 outright for $629.99, or pay on installments with $0 down and $26.25/month for two years. LG is already courting third-party makers to expand on its Friends attachment universe, so the G5 may hold an even bigger potential down the road. Any takers?

That definitely is a good price, unlike the other report that said $800. That truly makes it a great competitor to the S7 (although I'm sure it will unfortunately still sell very little compared to the S7). I'll do my part and tell my family members looking to buy soon to consider it as an equal to the S7. I myself got the S7 edge but that's because I wanted the Gear VR and the free year of Netflix made it a great deal. Without those things, I would've never got it.

In the end you're still paying full price because of the inflated carrier price plus taxes makes the s7 edge $844. You can buy it outright for $699, so it's not a deal at all. The only deal you get is EIP to pay over 24 months

Yes, but if he doesn Netflix all the time, that's $107 off and even if you get a used Gear VR somewhere for $60, that's 844-176=$668. Still a good deal!

You can pay it outright after you get your free stuff. They're not gonna ask you to return anything....

Actually, as long as you order it through T-Mobile, you will get it rather if you are on EIP or pay it full outright

LCD makes this my back up phone at best. I can't argue with the price point though...

Wow, so you really enjoy the burn-ins of OLED displays?

LCD is actually good for hardcore users.
