The LG V20 arrives early for T-Mobile customers

T-Mobile is the first US carrier to start shipping the LG V20. A lucky T-Mobile customer took to Reddit to inform the world that he received his V20 today, only two days after the magenta carrier started accepting orders for the handset. However, most customers will get their units tomorrow, or later this week (obviously, we're talking about T-Mobile customers who already placed orders).

As you may know, T-Mobile is asking $769.99 for the LG V20, or $49.99 down and $30 per month over 24 months if you don't want to pay the full price upfront. A pair of H3 by B&O Play headphones (normally $149) is included with each purchase.

Verizon will start selling the LG V20 online this week, too, while AT&T and Sprint are getting ready to do it next week. If you want to get an LG V20 from a brick-and-mortar store, you'll have to wait until around October 28, regardless of what carrier you're choosing.

The LG V20 will also be available unlocked, and it looks like Newegg and B&H could have it in stock in the coming days. Both retailers will ask $799.99 for the smartphone - the world's first to run Android Nougat out of the box (though the Google Pixel and Pixel XL are also almost here).

Have you ordered an LG V20 yet? Or do you plan to do it anytime soon?

Hell yes. Just got my tracking #. Was really surprised when the rep told me it'll arrive by midweek. Anticipation begins as I check the UPS website until it finally provides the schedule delivery date, overnight shipping. I love T-Mobile.

Well the V20 is everything the V10 isn't. A definite upgrade. More of a corporate look unibody compared to it's rugged predecessor. Battery life is better and Android Nougat is nice but not compatible with some apps making it clunky till they update them to 7.0. Way better screen too. I like the USB type C as well. Louder speaker too. Was surprised.

TMO only have the dark gray option. AT&T have silver or gray. I wanted the silver too but eh oh well. Bought a chrome/silver case so close enough lol

Oh no I don't use cases on my phones. Especially one as shock proof as the V20. I'll probably just get a Dbrand or SlickWraps skin to get the affect I'm looking for. Or I might actually like the dark grey.

I'm now waiting for the V34 to come to the US.

LG should have thought it through since they've had so much time to introduce their new phones. The V34 should have been released along side the V20 instead of being a Japanese exclusive (for now).

I would too but I don't have the patience for LG. The V20 already took a lifetime to make it to carriers and we knew about How long you think it will take for the lightbulb to go off and make it available in other countries?

Received mine this morning and what a great phone. I've been a Note user since the Note 3 and I cant find a whole lot to complain about with the V20. I can think of four nitpicks so far: -No physical home button. -Power Button/Fingerprint Scanner on the back of the phone -Auto Brightness jumps all over the place when in a semi-dark room. -I prefer the edge app drawer over the second screen of the V20. Easier to reach one handed. Other than that everything else is a positive. Great cameras and a quick responsive UI.

I ordered mine and it's due to arrive on the 22nd of October? I'm getting $200 back for turning in my two-year-old One Plus One, pair of B&O PLAY earphones, and a free LG gpad 8 x tablet. T-Mobile is a little tricky, though, I'm getting charged for the free tablet but each month I'll get a certain amount credited for the tablet. The gpad is due for a nougat update so why not? I have a Samsung Tab S with LTE that still hasn't gotten Marshmallow so if that update doesn't come soon, I'm selling it. I hope the camera is better after hearing mixed reviews on pre-production units. Anyone know of any wireless charging mods for the V20?
