Verizon opens LG G5 pre-orders, launches the LG K4 LTE
Not to be outdone by AT&T and Sprint, Verizon today started taking pre-orders for the LG G5. The carrier is offering the new smartphone for $26 per month over 24 months, or for $624 outright, and will ship it starting April 1. You have the option to get the G5 in silver or titan - thus, if you want the gold of pink variants, you'll need to look elsewhere.

If you order the LG G5 before March 31 (inclusive), Verizon Wireless will offer you a gift comprised of an LG 360 CAM (normally priced at $199), extra battery, and charging cradle. Not a bad deal, we reckon.

The G5 is LG's newest flagship smartphone, coming with a modular metallic design, plus all the high-end features that the company can currently pack into a handset. To find out more about the device, check out our LG G5 preview, and take a look at PhoneArena authors' personal thoughts on the device.

In addition to accepting pre-orders for the LG G5, Verizon today released the LG K4 LTE, a more modest (and significantly cheaper) smartphone. Part of LG's new K series, the K4 offers features like a 4.5-inch display with 854 x 480 pixels, a 1.1 GHz quad-core processor, 1.5 GB of RAM, and 16 GB of internal memory. The handset costs just $120 off contract, and (sadly) runs Android Lollipop.

Let us know if you're planning to buy any of these two new LG smartphones from Verizon, will you?

The K4 is pretty lame compared to the other $120 - $200 phones since those provide either qHD or 720 HD. In this day and age there isn't a good reason to ship a 4.5" phone with WVGA.

Those phones are just ugly. Waste of resources for the G5, especially almost everyone upgrade their phones yearly or every 2 years. Modulars are just useless since we are buying new phones so often. People who want to keep their phones longer don't even have the money to buy the G5, leave alone the expensive accessories.
