Sprint LG G2

Sprint this morning announced that its version of the LG G2 will go up for preorder on Oct. 11, for $199 on contract. An actual street date was not disclosed.

In addition to the phone, those who pre-order will receive a free Quick Window case (worth $49).

We've got a pre-production version of the G2 in hand and have been taking a look at a few of the more interesting features, including:

Now if Sprint would only implement some sort of early upgrade option.

fastamx79 says:

Hopefully bring back the premier gold program. I enjoyed upgrading every year w/ the two year price.

newboyx says:

Rondo, they do, it's called Upgrade Now. Call Sprint and ask for account services. It is not advertised and not all accounts are eligible.

Interesting newboyx, never heard of it.

This thread goes through some of the details. It's not perfect, but it is at least an option.

That's an interesting article but I would have to run the math to see how it compares. I think it is a clunker, but not positive.

Thanks for the info though

There's an easy solution to the early upgrade option. Just buy a full price phone and sell your old one. Done. The price comes out almost exactly the same as most of these early upgrade programs.

A pre-order date is a great step in the right direction.
My upgrade is Dec 1st so I will not pre-order, but will pick up one one that day.

You get the quick window case for being late to the party. When Verizon beats you to a phone launch then you deserve a free case.

Robbzilla says:

Now THAT'S funny!

TexasNexus1 says:

No. I see it as Verizon getting it out early do they didn't HAVE to give away the case! But we'll see...

Robbzilla says:

No SD card slot, no removable battery, no way. I guess it's the Note III for me.

moosc says:

LoL sad

Too Bad Sprint won't get LTE turned on in my area. I jumped ship for T-Mobile and am very happy for it!

That's what I did until I went about 30 miles west of the city and was stranded in 2g land or no service at all. I'm considering going back to sprint.

AT&T may be the devil but their network coverage is pretty good, at least in my area.

NoNexus says:

They are the Devils cousin. Verizon is the devil

DaGODFather says:

I'm having the same experience. So I came to realize (and this is only between these 2 networks). If you want coverage go with Sprint, and if you want speed go with T-Mobile. And ofcourse this depends on where you live.

Gekko says:

AT&T GoPhone.

DaGODFather says:

Is there an unlimited data plan? I didnt see one.

NoNexus says:

Sprint is getting there... At least in my area it is getting faster and faster. Never really dropped from lte from harrisburg to Baltimore to philly. When I did 3g was decent. Not spectacular, but good enough

DaGODFather says:

I agree... slowly but surely!

jlunardi says:

Not from US so not sure how it works but I keep seeing on AC "$199 on contract" for every new phone on different networks. Is this not price fixing in some way?

Gekko says:

no because they didn't all come together in some secret back door meeting to agree to collude.

Nobody is getting this phone. At least not as many are because there are too many options to choose from and the launch date is way off in the future!

NoNexus says:

Somehow I think your estimate is very off. If the note 3 was more of what I was looking for this time around I would wait for this one.

Now if they do not get it out the door before the Nexus 5 announcement they might have problems

mxmarcus says:

Does the Sprint version come with built-in wireless charging like the Nexus 4?

tx_tuff says:

In the US only Verizon is getting wireless charging.

tantai says:

This phone just beat Moto X in every possible way.

Nothing here about this being the first tri-band LTE phone for Sprint. Even the press release is silent. Odd.

Thanks.

Granted that's the case but you'd think they'd be less circumspect about it. Sprint is always touting things like HD voice long before it's a reality. Maybe just holding mum until the pre-order page is up.

randpost says:

ouch. this phone goes for preorder when the Note 3 has already shipped to consumers. Beautiful phone, but a fail in timing.

blackwe387 says:

To bad great news but sprint you are Why to late I've been wanting this phone for three months.. I'm with the sprint network but this sucks.. I won a photo printer with LG about the G 2 contest on August 6th that ships next week... You can't win Sprint with being late...

Posted via Android Central App

no sd card slot though, note 3 for me.

VW Maverick says:

One week until pre-order. I will be using the new "One Up" program to get mine one released. Latest rumor is "the last week of October." :)
