Verizon finally announces availability for the LG G3

114
Verizon LG G3

At long last, we now know when Verizon will make its LG G3 available. You'll be able to pre-order it starting today, with shipments heading out on July 17th. The LG G3 on Verizon comes in either black or white, and will set you back just $99.99 with a two-year contract, $29.99 per month on Verizon EDGE or a full $599.99 without any agreement. The carrier's spec sheet on the device also confirms that it is the LG G3 variant with 32GB of storage and 3GB of RAM.

It's been a long run-up to the G3, which was announced back on May 27. Verizon did little more than tweet that it'd carry it and give us renders of the black and white models, but we'd been left in the dark as to pricing and a release date ... until now. In the meantime, we've crawled inside and out of a couple Korean carrier models of the 5.5-inch Android smartphone, getting more than a good look at what's finally reaching U.S. shores on all four major carriers.

As you'll recall from our complete LG G3 review, this is the first QHD smartphone, with a ridiculous resolution of 2560x1440. Sometimes you'll notice (for better or worse), and sometimes you won't. It's a big phone, but it doesn't feel quite as big as you might think. And the buttons are all on the back of the phone, leaving plenty of room on the sides for more Verizon logos should someone decide the one on the front bezel and and the one on the battery cover aren't conspicuous enough. (Fortunately, the buttons haven't been redesigned this time around. Verizon made a mess out of them on the LG G2.)

AT&T LG G3 now available with half-off G Watch

27

The LG G3 is now available on AT&T, and if you get one you can also get an LG G Watch for 50% off. The deal is also good with the purchase of a new G Flex, cuts the price of the G Watch down to just $115, requires you buy a new G3 or G Flex, but considering how much we liked the insane LG G3, that's not necessarily a bad thing.
