LG G3 now has a blue variant, and you can buy one in the US
In case you weren’t happy with the original color range of the LG G3, LG is now offering a “blue steel” version of the flagship handset in the US.

The blue LG G3 can be bought via Best Buy, and it’s not available on just one carrier, but on three (Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint), starting at $99.99 on contract.

Of course, besides the new paint job, the blue G3 is identical to the device that LG released back in June, thus offering features like a 5.5-inch Quad HD display, a 13 MP rear camera with laser auto focus, a quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.5 GHz, and a 3000 mAh battery. You can find out much more about the handset by reading our LG G3 review.

While LG announced that the G3 would be updated to Android 5.0 Lollipop starting this week in Europe, it’s not clear exactly when the update is supposed to arrive in the US. Thus, in the meantime, the blue LG G3 will obviously be shipped running Android 4.4 KitKat.

Nope. But it actually looks ok in this color though.

LG should sell these blue G3s directly to consumers for $450, fully unlocked. A lot of people would like a new Nexus 5 (2014).

Please, tell me if you are using LG G3. Right now I am using HTC One M7. It's one of the best smartphones. But, indoors, in low-light situations, its camera takes photos and records video awfully, there's red-purple tint issue. Its battery is not removable. Its display is not big for internet surfing. What about LG G3? It's camera for taking photos and recording videos indoors and outdoors. Its flash light during camera is working. If it's a good phone, I will buy it instead of HTC One M7. Please, tell me.

The pictures and videos are GREAT BUT the app will crash if you zoom while recording. I'm pretty sure that can get fixed with a update. Besides that it's GREAT.....#Verizon

It became available November 16th. Went to Best Buy to get my upgrade with Verizon, asked for the white one, but they didn't have any. The sales rep then offered me the blue one, so that's what I went with. FYI it was only $49.99 with a 2 year contract or zero down via the Verizon Edge program.
